General[edit]

Black King Bar, also known as BKB, is an Armor item purchasable from the Main Shop. When its Avatar ability is activated, Spell Immunity and 100% Magic Resistance is granted to the user for a short period of time.
With every use the duration is decreased by 1 second, until it has reached the minimum duration of 5 seconds. The cooldown also decreases with use. Any new BKBs purchased will keep the cooldown and duration reductions.
Black King Bar cannot be sold.
