Lore:  
There was once a sorcerer and sorceress, kindreds spirits that would not be separated by mortal means, and so the fates would dictate that the immortal hand of death would grasp for one and leave the other be. Her lover gone, she remains lost in reverie, forever haunted yet blessed with his presence, yearning to reach into the very depths of hell to retrieve his soul.

[ W ]
Artesia Dance of Death.jpg
Cast Time: 0 / 0 seconds
Self
Mana Cost: 100/110/120/130
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Channel up to 4.5/6/7.5/9 seconds to gain to gain 800 clearvision, unitwalking and movement without breaking the channel.

While performing the Dance of Death, you will generate and fire Arcane Bolts every .4/.35/.3/.25 seconds and be able to shoot Arcane Missiles through creeps and at twice the speed.

Using abilities and items will not stop the channel but being stunned or silenced will. Activating this ability again will also stop it.

The cooldown of this ability begins when the channel stops.

Can't touch this...
 
Notes
  • Dance of Death will start generating Arcane Bolt charges as soon as it is cast.
  • Artesia is Disarmed during Dance of Death.
  • Rather than directly firing an Arcane Bolt at each set intervals, Dance of Death adds a charge to Arcane Bolts at those intervals and increases its rate of fire, which mean Arcane Bolts generated from Dance of Death and other spellcasts do not stack.
  • After Dance of Death is cast, all your subsequent Arcane Bolts will fire at the rate matching Dance of Death's Arcane Bolt firing speed until you run out of Arcane Bolt charges, even after channeling ends.
  • Fires up to 12/18/26/37 Arcane Bolts over the channel duration.


Arcane Bolts
[ E ]
Artesia Arcane Bolts.jpg
Passive
Cooldown: 0.2 seconds
Activate this ability to switch into Healing Mode. While in Healing Mode, Arcane Missile and Arcane Bolts will heal allies instead of damaging enemies. The cooldown and mana cost of Arcane Missile are also cut in half.

On spellcast, release 0/4/4/4/4 Arcane Bolts that seek out random ally heroes within 800 distance and deal 0/15/20/25/30 Magic Damage each.

An Arcane Bolt is released every 0.4 seconds.

Free at last!
 
Notes
  • When an Arcane Bolt fires, it first checks for a valid target within radius. If there are no valid targets at the period, the Arcane Bolt does not fire and the charge is wasted.
  • Effectively adds 0/60/80/100/120 Magic Damage per spellcast.


Arcane Bolts (Healing)
[ E ]
Artesia Arcane Bolts Healing.jpg
