Fashioned by a forgotten haemomancer eons ago, the Blood Chalice drains one's vitality and converts it to pure magical energy. Only the audacious soul dare make this contract!


Type - Superior Magic
Cooldown: 25 seconds
On use, removes 175 Health and grants 100 mana.

If an enemy hero within 700 radius is killed before 15 seconds after use, the user is healed back the initial 175 Health cost.
