  • Does not directly amplify damage as it is dealt, but rather saves all damage values and deals 30% of it 5 seconds after cast.
    • This means that the damage can be avoided by becoming spell immune or invulnerable/hidden at the end of the duration.
  • The damage is applied as soon as the debuff expires. Dispelling the debuff, however, skips the damage entirely.
    • Recasting Soul Rend on the same target refreshes the duration.
    • Doing this delays the damage further, and gives more time to deal damage to the target.
    • The damage is credited to the last caster of Soul Rend on the target.
  • Only considers magical, physical and pure damage (after all reductions). Other sources of health loss are ignored.
  • Applies Accuracy on the target, causing all attacks done against it to not miss to evasion or blind effects.
  • The critical strike is only applied to attacks launched on a debuffed enemy. Previously launched attack projectiles are unaffected.
    • In reverse, this also means that projectiles launched during the debuff still crit even when landing after it already expired.
  • Shares cooldown with Orchid Malevolence.


  • Prior to the July 14, 2017 Patch, Bloodthorn’s active ability, Soul Rend, did not have an official name. The name was taken from the Dota 2 Wiki and officially implemented into Dota 2.
