Notes
  • Casting Valor removes the armor benefit from the caster temporarily for the duration.
  • Multiple of the same Valor debuffs/buffs do not stack with themselves and will only refresh the duration.
  • The different debuff and buff do stack with each other and each have an independent duration.
  • Shares cooldown with  Solar Crest.
  • Fully stacks with Shine Shine.

Strategy[edit]

Strategically, it's great against Roshan and neutral creeps. It can also surprise enemies in team fights, by allowing teammates the opportunity to save each other with the armor buff, or single out an enemy using the armor debuff.
