  • Viper Strike's projectile travels at a speed of 1200 and can be disjointed.
  • The movement and attack speed slow decrease over time. Hit units regain 1% of their movement speed in 0.1275/0.085/0.06375 second intervals (or 8%/12%/16% in 1 second).
  • However, the status debuff and the movement speed in the UI update in 1 second intervals.
  • Deals damage in 1 second intervals, starting 1 second after debuff is placed, resulting in 5 damage ticks overall.
  • Can deal up to 300/500/725 damage (before reductions).
  • Successive casts of Viper Strike on the same target do not stack, only the debuff gets refreshed.
  • The particle effects on Viper's wings during the cast time are visible to everyone, showing that the spell is being cast.

Item Interactions:
