A former paladin of great renown, Abaddon fell into darkness during the invasion of the Burning Legion, becoming possessed by many demons, corrupting both his soul and his powers. Now a Death Knight set high in the Lich King's hierarchy of generals, he rides into battle against impossible odds, never stopping until he reaches the World Tree itself. Whether enhancing his own fortitude with a shield of dark energy, or using his life force to aid in combat, the Lord of Avernus leads the armies of the Scourge ever onward, forever locked in combat with the forces of good, and his enemies who were once his greatest comrades.
Death Coil Death Coil (D)
Abaddon releases a coil of death that can damage an enemy unit or heal a friendly unit at the cost of some of Abaddon's health.

Level 4 - Heals or Damages for 250 HP. Deals 125 HP to himself.
Damage type: magic (on the target) / pure (on Abaddon)
Abaddon will not receive Death Coil's damage if he has magic immunity when he casts it.
Self-damage from Death Coil can burst Aphotic Shield just as any other kind of damage.
Abaddon can deny himself with this skill.
Casting range: 800
Mana Cost: 75
Cooldown: 6

Aphotic Shield Aphotic Shield (T)
Summons dark energies around an ally unit, creating a shield that absorbs a set amount of damage before expiring.

Level 1 - Absorbs and deals 110 damage.
Level 2 - Absorbs and deals 140 damage.
Level 3 - Absorbs and deals 170 damage.
Level 4 - Absorbs and deals 200 damage.
Damage type: magic
If Abaddon has Aphotic Shield on him, it will not burst if Abaddon is currently under the effect of Borrowed Time.
Will replace any Aphotic Shield currently active on the target, so two shields will never be active at the same time on the same unit.
Casting range: 450
Area of Effect: 700
Mana Cost: 100/105/110/115
Cooldown: 18/15/12/9 seconds

Abaddon strikes an enemy with Frostmourne's chilling power on each attack, causing all units who attack the slowed enemy to gain 15% increased movement speed, along with faster attack speed, for a limited time.

Level 3 - Slows enemies for 15%, gives +30% attack speed to allies.
Level 4 - Slows enemies for 20%, gives +40% attack speed to allies.
Frostmourne is a Buff Placer.
The Frostmourne buff is placed before Abaddon attacks, so he gets the bonus on his first hit.
Duration: 2 seconds (Slow on enemy); 4.5 seconds (Increased movement and attack speed on allies)
Mana Cost: N/A
Cooldown: N/A
Borrowed Time Borrowed Time (B)
When activated, most negative buffs will be removed and any damage you take will heal you instead of damage you. If the ability is not in cooldown, it will passively activate when your hitpoints drop below 400 hp.

Level 2 - Lasts 4 (6*) seconds.
Level 3 - Lasts 5 (7*) seconds.
Mana Cost: N/A

When activated it removes negative buffs from Abaddon.
Aghanim's Scepter improves duration (noted by *)

Also the part when it shows your fighter beaten up with bruises and cuts then that symbolic countdown starts... 10... 9... 8... 8... 7... 6... 54321... The part when you just fed your last coin into the machine as you mash buttons to speed up the countdown and end the humiliation of your defeat quickly.

555 By dohyun99 2012-06-05


back to the nether you go troll

554 By neimi 2012-06-05

welcome back EIOX.(before u say im not EIOX then i want to remind you of the comments u made. frosmourne imba! i made him imba one day with .... kills)

and he isnt that good of a carry.
not good enough stats for a carry.
no good farming spell.
3 support spells.

so no carry.
tanky support works well tho

553 By GuriPSYCO 2012-06-05

I don't say he's not good, he's just NOT THAT GOOD. I played him as carry for a long time back in 2008, but things goes a little different by now.

552 By shalome 2012-06-05

Abba is my favourite pick as carry....

551 By GuriPSYCO 2012-06-05

Sorry, dude, bud LoA got way too many nerfs to be the a carry. Old day LoA was OP as a carry; nowadays, not so much.

550 By shalome 2012-06-05

frostmourne imba!!!
after that
replace janggo with butter
should we upgrade ulti or nt?
Linken vs Aghanim

549 By Zxcvbnm11592 2012-06-05

Yes, ulti triggers in hex. Confirmed.

548 By KNiteman 2012-06-05

Aphotic Shield is one of the few spells that counters AA's ulti but Puck, imba timing and Phase Shift work just as well. Seen a Puck player dodge death like that.

547 By Hyperion1O1 2012-06-05

If you kill his team 1st(granted that they're weaker or retarded), he's just gonna coil and shield an ally who is important and attack the weakest opponent. That's either gonna force you to kill him before he does a significant amount of damage or continue to hit LoA's allies.

At polymorph, I think so.

546 By KNiteman 2012-06-05

Or the fun of killing his team first then focus him, take him down to ulti, get him back to full health and kill him officially. Does his ulti activate during polymorph?

545 By shalome 2012-06-05

btw axe ulti deal 100000000 physical damage :P

544 By Hyperion1O1 2012-06-05

Time the SS against necro ult, no counter for axe, Chrono still sticks, time the crits(if you even can).

543 By neimi 2012-06-05

im not sure about the void one.
can you plz check it again and give me the results?

you also forgot necro ulti, and axe ult, 1k crit

542 By GuriPSYCO 2012-06-04

If I am not mistaken, It will work. Borrowed Time clears all the buff and is automatically castable even when you normally wouldn't, like inside of a Chronosphere. Note that you CAN'T activate by yourself, but it will work after your health drops, if I'm not mistaken.
If you're really willing to kill him, burst damage like Laguna Blade/Finger of Death are the calls.

541 By Hyperion1O1 2012-06-04

Quick question because I'm confused:

If Abaddon is at 500 hp and he gets Doomed, will Borrowed Time activate to save his ass? Because it happened to me and it saved my ass in multiple occasions. Is it supposed to activate or not?

540 By nO_mErCy 2012-05-31

Yes it would be like that .....but that drama get over before early game gone... ..

539 By RangedHeroProb 2012-05-30

Death coil should have 50/60 mana...

538 By Fajubiano 2012-05-30

abbadon+axe= unbeatable(early-mid game)
