Allied Heroes
Targets an allied unit and makes it turn invisible after a short fade time. While invisible, it gains bonus magic resistance. The invisible unit is allowed to move during the invisibility, but attacking or casting a spell will cause the fade time to trigger again.

Notes
  • Total magic resistance:
    • 64.94% on self
    • 58.75% on allies
  • The bonus magic resistance is only active while invisible, not during the fade time.
  • Other sources of invisibility do not grant or extend the bonus magic resistance.
  • The bonus magic resistance remains active even if the hero gets revealed while invisible.
  • Glimmer Cape has a nearby buffer range, allowing it to be cast on allies within 1050 range. Casting outside of this range results in the default 800 range being used instead of the buffer.
  • Can be cast while channeling.
  • Can be dispelled.
