Variants

Notes

  • You can bind Pious Renewal to another key or Mouse3 if your fingers start cramping.
  • Pious Renewal results in a net gain of 2 energy at 13 Mysticism (3 energy at 14 Mysticism) every time it ends.
  • Since enchantments are removed on attack rather than on hit, Aura of Holy Might still triggers on missed and blocked attacks because the teardown will still occur.
  • Withering Aura on another player or on a hero will help with Reap Impurities spam since it re-applies the condition.
