Tips and Tricks
Shadow Poison impact and detonate damage fully affects units in Disruption.
The following is the Shadow Demon’s combo: begin on an enemy with Disruption and Soul Catcher; use Shadow Poison to disable their Blink Dagger if they have one; use Demonic Purge when the target pops out of Disruption; and try to stack more poison on them while they are slow.
Shadow Demon’s Ability
Removes the targeted unit temporarily from the field of battle. Upon returning, Shadow Demon commands the creation of two illusions of the exiled unit.
When the target is damaged, a part of that damage is also dealt to all opponents within 675.0 range of the target, including the target if it is an enemy. can target both hostile and allying units. If the target is obscured by Disruption, the effect is halted.
Linearly deals damage while poisoning nearby opponent units. Up to 5.0 stacks, the poison injures the target for 1/2/4/8/16 times the damage per stack, depending on how many stacks are present. Each additional stack does 50.0 damage. When Shadow Poison’s duration expires or the Release sub-ability is activated, this postponed damage is dealt.
Removes all detrimental buffs from the target allied unit for the duration. The unit is restored after the conclusion of the period. Demonic Cleanse can still have an impact on units impacted by Disruption.
