Notes
  • Successfully blinking 1200 distance plays an additional sound effect.
  • Attempting to blink more than 1200 units away will result in blinking only 960 units in that direction.
  • Double clicking will blink the player 960 units in the direction of their fountain.
  • Blink is not disabled if the source of hero damage is reduced to zero.
  • HP Cost does not disable blink dagger.
