While active, changes attack damage type to Magic at the cost of mana per attack. Attacks also reduce Magic Armor of the target temporarily.

This item contains an Attack Modifier. Attack modifiers are exclusive and do not stack with other attack modifiers.


Toggle Enemy Units
Type - Magic Attack
On Attack
When toggled on, attacks deal Magic Damage and apply Harkon's Blade to attack target for 5 seconds. Each attack costs 50 Mana while active.

Harkon's Blade Effects
-4 Magic Armor

  • Harkon's Blade will override passive Attack Modifiers when toggled.
  • If toggled on a ranged hero, it gains a different attack projectile that has 1200 speed.
  • Each attack will remove 50 Mana rather than directly spending it. This is not considered "Mana spent," so it does not trigger effects such as Magebane Master of the Mantra.jpg Master of the Mantra, Nome's Wisdom.jpg Nome's Wisdom, or Moira.jpg Mana Sunder.
