Recommended Roles
Initiator.png Initiator

Deep amid the Upland crags and cliffs there runs a seam of sacred jade long foresworn by highland minders. From this rare material, the likeness of the great general Kaolin was carved and buried at the head of a stone funerary army ten thousand strong—a force of soldiers and holy men, jesters and acrobats, carved by crafstmen and entombed for millennia in the dark embrace of the Earth.

What the craftsmen had not known was that within the strange seam of jade flowed the spirit of the Earth itself—an elemental force at one with the planet. When the force within the carved jade found itself cut off from the life's blood of the world, it gathered its strength over the course of a thousand years and dug itself free and into the light. Now the great Kaolin Earth Spirit strides the Upland roads, fighting for the spirit of the Earth; and in times of need calls forth remnants of his buried army still locked in the loving embrace of the soil.

Rolling Boulder

Ability: Target Point
Affects: Enemy Units / Stones
Damage: Magical
Kaolin turns into a boulder and begins spinning in place to build up momentum. After 0.6 seconds, he launches himself 800 distance in the direction he is facing, damaging units he passes through but stopping if he collides with an enemy hero or is stunned. Rolling over a Stone Remnant will add momentum, increasing roll distance, speed, damage, and adding a slow to the hero you collide with.

  • Kaolin cannot attack while rolling, but may still turn, cast spells, and use items.
  • The Stone Remnant is consumed when used as a boost for rolling.
  • Destroys trees in its path.
  • Damage blocked by Magic Immunity, the slow is not.
Geomagnetic Grip

Ability: Target Unit
Affects: Allied Units / Stones

Earth spirit magnetize.png
Ability: No Target
Affects: Enemy Units / Stones
Damage: Magical
Magnetizes units in a small area around Earth Spirit, causing them to take damage over time for a short duration. Any magnetized heroes cause nearby Stone Remnants to become energized and explode, applying and refreshing the magnetize debuff on all units near the Stone Remnant. This process can repeat multiple times. Stone Remnants are destroyed in this process.
Mana Cost.png 100
Cooldown Clock.png 80
Damage Per Second:
Stone Energize Radius:
Stone Explosion Radius:
Magnetize Duration:
 50 / 75 / 100
  • Total damage without refreshing: 300 / 450 / 600.
  • When a Stone Remnant explodes from Magnetize, it doesn't immediately disappear. It becomes inert and then disappears after 5 seconds. It may still be used by your other spells in the meantime.
  • All magnetized heroes feel the effect of the silence and slow from Geomagnetic Grip and Stone Remnant enhanced Rolling Boulder if any other magnetized hero is affected by them.
  • Damage blocked by Magic Immunity. Becoming magic immune does not dispel the debuff, only temporarily halts the damage.
