  • Swiftblade can freely use items while Blade Frenzy is active.
  • Deals a total of 375/475/575/675 Magic Damage.

[ W ]
Swiftblade Counter Attack.jpg
Cast Time: 0 / 0 seconds

Cooldown: 23/20/17/14 seconds
Passively counter-attack if attacker is an enemy hero by 10/15/20/25% chance.

Grants invulnerability to self for 1 second when this ability expires if a hero attack is blocked, changing this ability to Counter Strike for the next 5 seconds.

Right back at you!
 
Notes
  • Counter Attack is not considered an autoattack and it does not apply modifiers.
  • Works even while disabled.
  • Swiftblade will counter-attack with a projectile when countering a ranged attack.

  • With the maximum number of bounces, Swift Slashes will deal 600/1000/1600 (1000/1400/2000) Physical damage total (excluding autoattack damage) and be invulnerable for 1.2/2/3.2 (2/2.8/4) seconds.
