Lore:  
The priests tell young men bound for the battlefield that if they fall, Elysian fields and peace awaits them. But this is not strictly true, not as long as the Soulstealer walks the battlefield. Gathering the spirits of those he kills in a bloody, shadowy sack, he augments his own power with their suffering. Those who see him quake in terror to know that death, for them, will be no release, but only a fiery captivity and oblivion.

You want your soul back?
 

Soul Burst Effects
-25% Base Damage
25% Movement Slow

Notes
  • Soul Burst's affector is an expanding ring that starts at 200 radius and expands to 1000 over 0.95 seconds. The ring has a width of 500.
  • Damage formula:
    • Maximum damage is dealt at 50 radius.
    • Otherwise, damage is equal to (0.5 * [Distance_Factor^2 + Distance_Factor]) * Max_Potential_Damage, where:
      • Distance_Factor = 1 - ([Distance - 50]/950)
      • Max_Potential_Damage = 150/225/300 + [15/22.5/30 * Souls]
  • Since the startup is based on cast time, if Soulstealer is stealthed while casting Soul Burst, he will not be unstealthed until Soul Burst goes off.
  • Staff of the Master.jpg Staff of the Master increases maximum amount of souls and max potential damage from Soulburst as well.

Legacy Abilities[edit | edit source]

[ R ]
Soulstealer Soul Burst.jpg
Cast Time: 1.4 / 0 seconds
Self Position Enemy Units
Type - Magic
Soulstealer releases torrents of negative energy based on the number of souls he has collected. Each torrent damages nearby enemies. The closer an enemy is, the more torrents he'll get hit by.
Radius: 700
Mana Cost: 150/175/200
Cooldown: 120/110/100 seconds
Releases one torrent for every 2 souls that the Soulsteal ability currently has.

Each torrent deals 80/120/160 Magic Damage. Applies Soul Burst to enemies in radius for 5 seconds.

You want your soul back?
 

Soul Burst Effects
-15/20/25% Base Damage
15/20/25% Movement Slow

Notes
  • The damaging torrent and the Soul Burst debuff radius are seperate.
  • Torrents are spread out evenly around Soulstealer.
  • The torrent is a cone that starts with 75/100/125 radius, travels 825/800/775 units, and ends with 400/425/450 radius.
  • Each torrent travels up to 1300/1325/1350 units. The larger starting radius makes it slightly more reliable to obtain the full damage at very close distance.
  • The debuff radius is a circle centered around Soulstealer, expanding to 700 radius over 1 second.
  • The maximum damage obtainable with Soul Burst is 1200/1800/2400 (with Level 4 Soulsteal), but it requires Soulstealer's hitbox to be inside the unit's by using Unitwalking.
  • Since the startup is based on cast time, if Soulstealer is stealthed while casting Soul Burst, he will not be unstealthed until Soul Burst goes off.
