Butterfly is one of the strongest items for an agility carry in the late game. The components Eaglesong and Talisman of Evasion must be purchased from the Secret Shop, while the Quarterstaff can be bought at either the Home Shop or the Side Shop.
Provides +65 net attack speed, +30 damage, and, if obtained as an agility hero, 35 additional damage.
Gives a 35% evasion chance, which can force enemies to get a Monkey King Bar. It also gives the 4.29 armor provided by the 30 agility. The agility and evasion works with illusions, and so is a damage and survivability boost to Phantom Lancer and Naga Siren's illusions when wielded.
Evasion has diminishing returns with other evasion. Making the item is useful, although less so than on other heroes, on heroes with innate evasion such as Phantom Assassin and Brewmaster to increase their evasion chance.
