Tier 3
Attack Damage +50

Movement Speed +5%
Gold Efficiency 101.0% (not including Chain Lightning passive)
Unique Passive(s) Chain Lightning: Every 4 seconds, the next normal attack triggers a chain lightning that deals 102 (+7 per level) magic damage (effect is doubled for ranged heroes). Each normal attack reduces cooldown by 1 second on hit.
SG Note
If the hero’s hands are glowing white, then the next attack will be enhanced by Chain Lightning.
The maximum number of targets damaged by one Chain Lightning is four.
Chain Lightning will bounce to the next target if it is within roughly 600 units.
The same Chain Lightning cannot damage the same target twice.

The version 16 change to Blitz Blade instantly made it a must-have for attack speed-based marksmen. Blitz Blade offers the highest attack speed boost of non-jungle items, a passive that adds significant additional magic damage on a very short cooldown, and decent auxiliary attack damage, life steal, and movement speed stats for the super cheap price of 1780 gold.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

As it offers the cheapest power spike among attack items (arguably among all items), Blitz Blade should usually be built first. Valhein makes by far the best use of Blitz Blade, but other attack speed-focused marksmen like Slimz and Tel’Annas benefit a great deal as well.
