Additional Insights

  • Does not stack with its upgrades.
  • What makes the Blight Stone extra awesome is that this armor reduction effect lingers for a few seconds, giving your hero and nearby allies the advantage in battles. It's like leaving a mark of vulnerability on the enemies, making them more susceptible to attacks from your whole team!
