Additional Insights

  • Self-casting will cause you to teleport in the direction of your team's fountain.
  • If you used Overwhelming Blink to teleport to a distance over the maximum range, you'll be teleported 4/5 of the maximum range instead.
  • This marvelous blink-enhancer significantly increases your hero's blink range, ensuring they can close the gap and initiate combat from a considerable distance. It's perfect for heroes who want to be the daring leaders on the battlefield, surprising foes with a touch of valor.

Statistics

The statistics below shows the percentage of hero builds which contain Overwhelming Blink as a core or non-core item for each role. These statistics are based on our hero guides.

Itemization Strategy

An item extensively found in the inventory of initiators and cores with low cooldown it is a great item choice specially in the late game. Puck and Centaur are the heroes that could abuse this most of the time.

A late game pick up to have more AoE damage and control in teamfights while adding even more damage to Double Edge.

A core item to have more AoE damage and control in teamfights. Makes you much more tanky with HP pool and synergizes well with Shivas Guard to instantly clear creep waves. Gets refreshed with Rearm to spam for damage and slow with each usage.
