Lore:  
While the world above burned, within the deepest crevices of Newerth an abominable conglomeration of sentient gels, pathogens, and other lurkers of the deep simmered in a primordial pool, slowly evolving and multiplying. From this cesspool emerged the Parasite, sickeningly intelligent and chaotically evil.

Range: 300
Mana Cost: 100/110/120/130
Cooldown: 30 seconds
Takes control of the target unit and hides yourself within, granting it 20/40/60/80 Attack Speed, 2/3/4/5 times Parasite's level in Damage, and 25/50/75/100 Movement Speed. Can target ancients.

The unit loses 3/2/1/0% of its Max Health per second.

Level 1 of this ability cannot target allied units.

Let me in let me in let me in
 
Notes
  • Cannot Infest player-controlled units.
  • Removes all buffs and debuffs and disjoints projectiles on Infest.
  • Infest will also remove the ally version of Ophelia's Judgment and break the channel on Circe's Twisted Visage.
  • Parasite is invulnerable while Infesting a creep.
  • While infesting a creep, Parasite can be selected, although you can't do anything with Parasite besides leveling his abilities.
  • Damage drain directly removes Health, and cannot be reduced with Damage Reduction effects.
  • Draining Venom will function on the Infested creep as it would on Parasite.
  • The Infested unit gains an ability that allows Parasite to kill and consume it (bound to R by default).
  • When Parasite leaves an Infested creep with less than 5 seconds of cooldown of Infest, its cooldown will be set to 5 seconds.
  • Infested units have a special icon on the minimap.
  • If Infest ends by Consuming the creep or from health loss at Levels 1-3, the kill is credited to Parasite. If an enemy kills the Infested creep, the kill is credited to the killer instead.


Consume
[ R ]
Parasite Infest.jpg
Cast Time: 0 / 0.5 seconds
Self Self
Instantly kills the controlled creep, healing Parasite for a portion of the creep's Health.
Kills the creep and heals Parasite for 30/40/50/60% of its current Health.
It's not you, it's me
 
Notes
  • When used, the Bounty from the Infested creep is granted to the last enemy-controlled unit that dealt damage to the Infested minion in the last 2 seconds. If no other hero applies, Parasite will be credited as the killer.


Draining Venom
[ E ]
Parasite Draining Venom.jpg
Passive
Any target (except Boss Units) the Parasite attacks takes extra damage from it and deals less damage to it.

Draining Venom is applied when you attack a target with a unit you Infest, or if you use an ability on a target.

On Attack
Applies Draining Venom to the target for 3 seconds
Can't touch this!
 

Draining Venom Effects
Takes 9/18/27/36% more damage from the Parasite and deals 9/18/27/36% less damage to the Parasite.

Notes
  • Only autoattacks and Parasite's abilities' damage are amplified by Draining Venom.
  • Illusions can apply Draining Venom, but only Parasite benefits from it.


Facehug
[ R ]
Parasite Facehug.jpg
Cast Time: 0.3 / 0.4 seconds

Here, let's trade!
 
Notes
  • The projectile travels at 1750 speed, and Parasite will leap to the target at 2250 speed upon latching.
