Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Spawning[edit | edit source]

Unlike other Neutrals, Transmutanstein will spawn as soon as the game starts.

When Transmutanstein is killed, he will respawn exactly 3 minutes after his death. It is impossible to prevent Transmutanstein from spawning.

Lair[edit | edit source]

Transmutanstein cannot be attacked from outside his lair. Any attacks attempted from outside his lair will show a pop-up as a Miss, but True Strike will not allow you to damage Transmutanstein from outside his lair. However, abilities will damage Transmutanstein, regardless damage type or whether the user is inside or outside the lair.

AI[edit | edit source]

Transmutanstein will cast his abilities based on coded behavior. See the Notes on each ability for details.

If Transmutanstein is lured outside of his lair for more than 3 seconds, he will be forced to return to his lair. When this happens, any debuffs are dispelled from Transmutanstein, and Transmutanstein gains Invulnerability, Cliffwalking and Buildingwalking until he returns to his lair.

Transmutanstein will never attack Towers.

Bounty[edit | edit source]

When Transmutanstein is killed, the killer will receive 200 gold. In addition, the killer's teammates will receive 200 gold. The killer does not receive this gold.

In addition, Transmutanstein will drop two Tokens of Vision on death.
