Gathering Power [Passive]

❢ Quest: Hero Takedowns increase Ability Power by 2%, up to 30%. This bonus Ability Power is lost on death.

Tier 2 (Hero Level 4)

Gathering Power was a Generic Talent that granted increased Spell Power upon scoring a Takedown. The bonus damage was sizeable and gave a hefty advantage if you survived, but dying was very punishing. The Talent was removed from many Heroes to instead provide them with different, more unique Talents that suit their kit better and weren't simple "win more" talents.

The Talent is no longer available on any Hero.

Old versions[]

Originally the Talent immediately granted 8% Ability Power, increased by 2% for every Takedown up to additional 12%.

Heroes with Gathering Power[]


These Heroes no longer have Gathering Power as a Talent option.

  • Zeratul also had modified version of the Talent, Grim Task, which granted 5% increased Ability Power per Takedown up to 50%.

Similar effects[]

  • Tracer's level 13 Talent "Untouchable", increases Basic Attack damage by 5% for each Takedown up to 30%, all stacks are lost on death.
