Info[edit | edit source]

The greatest inventors of the Human Legion dreamed of making an army of machine warriors to spare humans the bloody cost of war. Only one was ever created, for no one could ever find a way to quicken him. When the Hellbourne fed a stolen soul into its mechanical shell, they brought the Chronos to life and gained the benefit of this artificial monster's mastery over time itself.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Time Leap
[ Q ]
Chronos Time Leap.jpg
Cast Time: 0.1 / 0 seconds
Target Position Enemy Units
Type - Magic
Chronos teleports himself through space and time to a target location, slowing enemies in target location upon arrival.
Range: 700/900/1100/1300
Radius: 300
Mana Cost: 120
Cooldown: 13 seconds
Teleports self to target position. Upon arrival, deals 50/90/130/170 Magic Damage in radius and applies Time Sap to enemies in radius for 3 seconds.
It's all about the flux capacitor!

Time Sap Effects
10/15/20/25% Movement Slow

[ W ]
Chronos Rewind.jpg
Chronos steps back through time when damaged, giving him a chance to undo damage taken quickly.

Can't touch this!
  • Stacks with Evasion modifiers.
  • Rewind does not protect Chronos from lethal damage nor disables.
  • Rewind can trigger from DoT damage, but in most cases the amount healed will be almost negligible.

Curse of Ages
[ E ]
Chronos Curse of Ages.jpg
Chronos can steal time from any enemy hero he hits, eventually locking them in time for a brief moment.
Passively gives your attacks a 10/15/20/25% chance to deal 40/60/80/100 bonus Magic Damage and apply a 1 second Stun to enemy units.
Enjoy the space-time continuum.
  • This ability contains Bashing properties. Items and abilities with Bashing properties contain a shared cooldown time.
  • Curse of Ages uses pseudo-random RNG to determine proc chance, resulting in the ability being less likely to proc early or late.
    • Proc chance starts at 1.48/3.22/5.57/8.48%, and whenever an attack does not proc Curse of Ages, it adds 1.48/3.22/5.57/8.48% to proc chance. On proc, the chance resets to its base value.
  • Illusions deal 33% of the damage and do not apply stun.
  • Can stun Magic Immune units, but does not deal damage to them.
