Can be double-activated to spawn the explosion on top of self.

Stock: 1 (Initial) / 1 (Max)
Restock Time: 6 minutes (Initial) / 15 minutes (Ongoing)

Activation[]

Target Position Non-Hero Enemy Units
Type - Superior Magic
Range: 1200
Radius: 400
Mana Cost: 50
Cooldown: 25 seconds
Marks the target area and causes an explosion after a 0.5 second delay. The explosion deals 150 Magic Damage to non-hero units (0.5x to hero units), a bonus 30% of the target's Max Health for enemy player-controlled non-hero units, or 500 True Damage or 50% of the target's Max Health to enemy illusions.


Each enemy illusion affected spawns an invisible arcane shockwave of 600 radius that only affects other enemy illusions in the area, making them receive 200 True Damage or 15% of their Max Health, whichever is higher. Illusions can take up to 80% of their Max Health from Arcane Bomb.

Also destroys trees and grants Clearvision in the area for 2.5 seconds.

 
Notes
  • Still deals the base 150 Magic Damage to enemy player-controlled-non-hero units.
  • The shockwave behavior is basically a Behemoth.jpg Behemoth Behemoth Shockwave.jpg Shockwave echo effect only for enemy illusions.
