Every 5 seconds, gain 75 Physical Armor against the next Hero Basic Attack, reducing the damage taken by 75%. Stores up to 2 charges.


Tier 1 (Hero Level 1)

Block is a generic Talent that provides small bursts of Physical Armor against Basic Attacks. It is very effective for use in a solo lane for reducing damage from enemy trades, and can reduce a lot of damage from heroes with slow and powerful attacks. However, it is ineffective against heroes with very high attack speed, because each individual attack is usually weaker and burn the accumulated block charges very fast, leading to a smaller overall damage reduction.
