SG Note
Fighting Spirit works exactly as written: all damage of all types, including “additional damage” and item auras, is increased by 10%

120 armor surpasses 1000 HP in terms of Effective HP at 5000 HP, so Blade of Eternity compares favorably stats-wise with the item it replaced, Ancestral Glory. However, instead of receiving a percentage of maximum health upon revival, the hero receives 3500 at level 15. Comparing various heroes at level 15 shows that 3500 is more than half the HP of marksmen and mages but ends up being less than 30% for tanks and warriors who buy 3-4 HP-boosting items. Add to that the fact that Fighting Spirit significantly aids marksmen and mages alike, and it becomes clear that Blade of Eternity is clearly geared toward damage dealers rather than damage soakers – though clearly anyone can purchase it.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Marksmen and Mages will have a lot better time with this item than Ancestral Glory, as it boosts their damage while reviving them at a reasonable health total. Bruisers can also make decent use of the armor and damage, though tanks who play in a purely supportive role will likely want to stay away from Blade of Eternity, as the lack of stats and revival at tiny amounts of HP will be difficult to overcome. That said, heroes that thrive at low health can certainly take their chances with it, and either find a way to escape or continue to contribute to the fight after being resurrected.

Good items to switch to during the 150-second cooldown or after both revivals have been exhausted are Hercules Madness for physical damage dealers and Rhea’s Blessing for mages.
