Kaolin, the Earth Spirit[edit]

Recommended Roles
Hero roles Initiator Hero roles Disabler

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.


Stone Remnant
Ability: Target Point
Kaolin raises a Stone Remnant from the depths of the earth to aid him in battle. Creating a Stone Remnant consumes 1 charge, and charges replenish over time.

Rolling Boulder
Ability: Target Point
Affects: Enemy Units
Damage: Magical
Kaolin turns into a boulder and begins spinning in place to build up momentum. He launches himself a 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, roll speed, damage, and adding a slow to the hero Kaolin collides with.

 Like calls to like. Even the minerals found in the blood and bones of living beings are not immune to the call of the Earth Spirit.
Ability: No Target
Affects: Enemy Units
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. Upgradeable by Aghanim's Scepter.

Remnant Explosion Radius:

 At the Earth Spirit’s call, the minerals in the blood and bones of his enemies rebel against the bodies they find themselves in.
  • Total damage without refreshing: 300 / 450 / 600.
  • Deals damage in 0.5 second intervals.
  • When a Stone Remnant explodes from Magnetize, it doesn't immediately disappear. It becomes inert and then disappears after 8 seconds. It may still be used by your other spells in the meantime.
  • If any magnetized hero is affected by the silence from Geomagnetic Grip or the slow from Rolling Boulder, all magnetized heroes receive the debuff.
Enchant Remnant
Ability: Target Unit

  • Earth Spirit gains this ability even if Magnetize is not leveled.
  • The Enchanted Remnant functions the same as normal Stone Remnants.
  • Blocked by Spell Immunity.
