The unique armor worn by this mysterious warrior is said to have been uncovered in the ruins of an Ancient city. Whether the armor imbues the famed speed and pinpoint accuracy possessed by the warrior called Swiftblade, or whether he would be equally mighty without it, none can say.
|BLADE FRENZY |
Swiftblade works himself into a blade frenzy. While in this state, he gains Magic Immunity and deals high damage per second to any nearby enemy units. Swiftblade is free to move around even while this skill is active.
|COUNTER ATTACK |
Extensive training in melee combat has allowed Swiftblade to perfect the art of countering enemy attacks, granting a chance that he will retaliate every time an enemy hero attacks him.
|WAY OF THE SWORD |
Swiftblade's unsurpassed skill at the sword has made him a master of hitting where it hurts, giving him a chance to critically strike opponents with each attack.
|SWIFT SLASHES |
Swiftblade attacks random nearby targets with such speed that he appears to teleport to them. Targets are randomly chosen, yet it is possible to teleport to the same target multiple times.
