Thought by some to be among the most cunning and manipulative among the Scourge's varied champions, the dark seer Ish'kafel, living in exile from his people, is also the most secretive, for he speaks to no one but the Lich King himself. His unconventional talents, which lie in augmenting himself and allies with a variety of both defensive and offensive supportive castings, are quite unusual and versatile, often capable of turning the tide of battle before it even starts.

601 By Hyperion1O1 2011-09-25

Check that question off. Found the answer.

600 By Hyperion1O1 2011-09-25

If anyone would make a guide, it has to emphasize positioning of ulti and timing.
Question: if 2 units have ion shell, will an enemy take damage from both at the same time or will it only take damage from one?

Ah shit, found it... Damn u ICEFrog, GO pump up Mortred with invisibilty on map, go make every single late gamer even more op at late game, and leave our "forgotten" heroes worse and worse... Double shell was like the... best...

592 By Bribe 2011-02-07

591 By bananaheadlin 2011-01-22

Oh I see, I thought I heard somewhere that it'll make double the damage. Thanks guys

590 By Zxcvbnm11592 2011-01-22

No as in i meant, it won't be 2 ion shells on the same unit.

589 By ->F3lix<-/ 2011-01-22


It won't act as one...the second one will override the first one, increasing the duration of it only...

588 By Zxcvbnm11592 2011-01-22

Stacks as in, If there are 2 units with ion shell around, then yes, the enemy will take more damage. But if you put ion shell on a unit, and then put it on the same unit again, it will act as only one ion shell.

587 By bananaheadlin 2011-01-22

sorry quick question, his ion shell still stacks right?

586 By ragnadiktus 2011-01-21
