Cooldown: 20 seconds

Tier 6 (Hero Level 16)

Imposing Presence is a generic level 16 Talent that inflicts a negative Status Effect on enemies attacking you, reducing their Attack Speed or, once activated inflicts all nearby enemies with a more powerful version of Attack Slow and additionally Slows their Movement speed. It is primarily effective against enemies who rely on Basic Attacks, especially melee heroes, and can be a massive increase in survivability for yourself, as long as you aren't hit by Abilities.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Imposing Presence applies its active effect instantly in a circular area of 5 radius, reducing the enemy Heroes' and Summons' Attack and Movement Speed. Its passive Attack Slow effect requires the enemy's Basic Attack to connect with the Hero with Imposing presence, meaning that the effect is not applied, if the enemy Basic Attack misses due to being Blinded or the target Evading. Bouncing and splashing Basic Attacks can also trigger the passive effect, even when the Hero with Imposing Presence wasn't their main target. The passive and active Attack Slows do not stack with themselves, nor each other. The Attack Slows can, however, stack additively with other effects that can affect the target Hero's Attack Speed.
