The Grand Magus, with his endless talent, will stop at nothing to bewilder and outsmart his enemies, even if it means turning their own magic against them. Renowned for his unique ability to steal magics with a mere thought, he is undeniably a favorable asset to the Sentinel in their fight against the Scourge.

Rubick Spells/Abilities Guide:

Lift Duration: 1.5/1.75/2/2.25 seconds
Stun duration: 1/1.25/1.5/1.75 (in the area it lands in, all enemy units except the initial target)
Land stun AoE: 325

Cast Range: 550/575/600/625
Cooldown: 18
Manacost: 160

While the target is in the air, Rubick may use a secondary ability to control the throw the enemy in a targeted direction. Maximum of 375 units away.

Note: The directional landing happens when the lift duration is over, but you can issue the direction order anytime.

Telekinesis Ability Code: A27F
Telekinesis Sub-Ability Code: A27X

2. Fade Bolt (Hotkey: X):

Rubick creates a powerful stream of arcane energy that travels between enemy units, dealing damage and reducing their attack damage for 10 seconds. Each bounce reduces the damage dealt by 4%.

Damage: 75/150/225/300
Attack Reduction: -14/20/26/32 Damage [-7/10/13/16 on creeps]
Duration: 10 seconds

Cast Range: 800
Cooldown: 10
Manacost: 90/95/100/105

Fade Bolt Ability Code: A27G

3. Null Field (Hotkey: N)
Rubick's mastery of the arcane protects his allies against weaker magics, granting them magic resistance.

Magic Damage Reduction: 5/10/15/20%
AoE: 900

Null Field Ability Code: A27V

4. Ultimate - Spell Steal (Hotkey: Q):

Rubick studies the trace magical essence of one enemy hero, learning the secrets of the last spell the hero cast. Rubick can use this spell as his own for several minutes or until he dies.
Spell is stolen for: 3/4/5 minutes

Cast Range: 1000
Manacost: 25
Cooldown: 20/18/16

Note: If you steal another spell, the old one is lost. Both teams see what spell was stolen. Items cannot be stolen, only abilities. You will get a warning message when the spell steal duration is close to expiring.
Note 2: There are a small set of spell exceptions (for technical reasons) that cannot be copied.

you can't steal passive skills(example meepo's ult)

why don't they make all his skills Q-W-E-R(from first to last) so that there will be no conflicts on stealing the skills of others.

Aghanim's Scepter does not improve the skill that Rubick stolen.If Rubick stole SF's requiem,he don't have any souls,requiem dmg=0,Epic Fail.Nice hero anyway :) (sorry for my poor grammar)

Totally agree .... this is what happen yesterday, I lolz hard when he was suppose to use Requiem to last hit 3 hero but with no damage (Or maybe little damage, im not too sure amd slow effect still remain), since he doesn't have any souls.
Epic Fail.

Stealing sf's ulti would be useless as he would have no souls= no damage for requiem

i think that requiems damage will be based on nevermore's collected souls. so if you have 30-30 souls on never and you stole the skill i think the damage will be the same. :)

Anonymous said...

it will copy the last spell that the target cast!! i copied techis ulti and made ultra kill. XD

Anonymous said...

Many heroes on 6.72 are imbalance.and they should be change and fix to balance the game

Anonymous said...

well he can steal SF's requiem and the damage is the same as the one that the SF released (or will deal the maximum damage - dunno which one works). I think the spell strength is depending on the strength of the original ones.

its said that it cannot steal items but when i played rubick i stealed the ability of a cheese .pls fix it

shadow fiends requiem need to have souls so if you steal the requiem then there is no damage, just don't copy it fucking pro.

Anonymous said...

some of the guys who posts here doesn,t make any sense.. As what the skill says. It can copy the latest casted spell of the target.. so it means he cant copy passives.. Next, he can only target enemy heroes.. so it's not possible to have 3 dooms in a single clash..

i'm getting use to it
