Notes
  • Evasion is disabled on all of the holder's Butterflies for the duration of Flutter.

Strategy

Aggressive use

Provides +65 net attack speed, +30 damage, and, if obtained as an agility hero, 35 additional damage.

Defensive use

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.

Item Synergy

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.
