Lore:  
Dr. Repulsor stood back and looked over the creation in his laboratory. The golem made from magnetized stone and steel was complete and ready to be brought to life. He watched as Hellbringer completed the ritual to summon forth the demon that would power the construct and bring it to life. The Eldritch runes etched into its frame would hold the creature eternally in place. While it may lack the intelligence of Chronos, the new soldier would be the first of many demon powered war machines.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Rocket Drill
[ Q ]
Lodestone Rocket Drill.jpg
Cast Time: 0 / 0.3 seconds
Target Position Enemy Units
Type - Magic
Lodestone fires his drill arm at an area. Lodestone can then drag himself to the drill.
Range: 700
Radius: 200
Mana Cost: 120
Cooldown: 20/18/16/14 seconds
Launches a drill at target position, dealing 50/90/130/170 Magic Damage to targets, applying a 60% Movement Speed Slow for 2 seconds, and attaching the drill to target position.

Activate again to launch yourself towards the drill, ending 300 units past it, gaining 40/60/80/100 Movement Speed for 3 seconds, dealing 50/90/130/170 Magic Damage to enemies you pass through and Stun for 1.5 seconds. Enemies hit a second time take half damage.

The drill returns to you if you move more than 1200 units away from it.

Well, you know the drill.
 
Notes
  • The drill lands at the target position after 0.3 seconds.
  • Lodestone can cast the second activation within 6 seconds from initial cast.
  • Lodestone is pulled to the drill at 1750 speed.
  • Stuns and damages enemies in a 125 radius around Lodestone on second activation.
  • Destroys trees in a 200 radius around the drill impact location and around Lodestone on second activation.
  • Lodestone can still attack while the drill is out.
  • Deals a total of 75/135/195/225 Magic Damage to enemies that are hit twice.


Headsmash
[ W ]
Lodestone Headsmash.jpg
Cast Time: 0.3 / 0.7 seconds
Target Unit Enemy Units
Lodestone smashes an enemy but receives some recoil damage.
Range: 200
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 7 seconds
Deals 150/250/350/450 Mixed Damage to target and surrounding enemies, as well as yourself. Damage dealt to yourself is non-lethal.
I have mixed feelings about this.
 
Notes
  • If the target unit is Magic or Physical Immune, Headsmash deals half damage and is reduced by the unresisted armor type.
  • Lodestone takes the full Mixed Damage even with Magic or Physical Immunity.


Headsmash
[ E ]
Lodestone Headsmash.jpg
Cast Time: 0.3 / 0.7 seconds
Self Position Enemy Heroes
Lodestone smashes a closest enemy hero but receives some recoil damage.
Range: 200
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 7 seconds
Deals 150/250/350/450 Mixed Damage to closest enemy hero and surrounding enemies, as well as yourself. Damage dealt to yourself is non-lethal.
I have mixed feelings about this.
 
Notes
  • If the target unit is Magic or Physical Immune, Headsmash deals half damage and is reduced by the un-resisted armor type.
  • Lodestone takes the full Mixed Damage even with Magic or Physical Immunity.
  • Shares cooldown with the main version of Headsmash.
  • Use Lodestone Lodestone Plates.jpg Lodestone Plates ability button to activate this sub-ability.


Lodestone Plates
[ E ]
Lodestone Lodestone Plates.jpg
Passive
Lodestone is surrounded by energy absorbing plates that restores some of his health whenever damaged.
Cooldown: 10/8/6/4 seconds
Passively blocks 15/25/35/45 Physical Damage from every attack. Does not stack with other forms of damage block.

When available, reduces the next instance of hero damage over 150 by 35%.

I prefer self-repair whenever possible.
 
Notes
  • Damage block is given as Deflection. Because Lodestone Plates has a 100% block chance, it will override other Deflection bonuses.
  • Does not activate from DoT damage.
  • Self-damage from Lodestone Headsmash.jpg Headsmash will trigger Lodestone Plates, as well as other ally hero damage sources (i.e. Pebbles Chuck.jpg Chuck).


Shatterstorm
[ R ]
Lodestone Shatterstorm.jpg
Cast Time: 0.4 / 0.6 seconds
Self Self
Lodestone absorbs all of the energy around him and explodes but leaves himself and his enemies vulnerable afterwards.
Mana Cost: 150/200/250
Cooldown: 90/75/60 seconds
Gain 20% damage reduction per second for the next 5 seconds. After 5 seconds or manually reactivating after 2 seconds, deals 200/325/450 Mixed Damage and applies Shatterstorm to nearby enemies and self for 5 seconds.
Darude - Shatterstorm.
 

Shatterstorm Effects
Damages against this target have 100% (50% to self) Armor and Magic Armor Penetration

Notes
  • If enemy unit is Magic or Physical Immune, they take half damage and damage is reduced by the unresisted armor type.
  • Shatterstorm effectively sets Armor and Magic Armor to 0, unless the armor value is negative.
  • You cannot recast Shatterstorm during the startup if you use a Restoration Stone.jpg Restoration Stone.

Legacy Abilities[edit | edit source]

Lodestone Plates (Pre-4.2.0)
[ E ]
Lodestone Lodestone Plates.jpg
Passive
Lodestone is surrounded by energy absorbing plates that restores some of his health whenever damaged.
When you take hero damage, removes a charge and heals back 35% of the damage taken.

A charge is refreshed every 6 seconds. Maximum of 1/2/3/4 charges.

I prefer self-repair whenever possible.
 
Notes
  • Charges are set to full when Lodestone levels the ability.
  • Lodestone Plates heals proportional to post-mitigation damage.
  • Does not activate on DoT damage.
  • Self-damage from Headsmash will trigger Lodestone Plates, as well as other ally hero damage sources (i.e. Pebbles Chuck.jpg Chuck).
  • Effectively acts as a 35% damage reduction, except it doesn't work on lethal damage and is reduced by Lord Salforis Mors Certissima.jpg Mors Certissima and Lord Salforis The Undying.jpg The Undying.
