Rourke Abilities (Descriptions, Videos, and Mechanics)

Passive Ability Effect
SCATTERSHOT Rourke’s crossbow fires special bolts, with each bolt reducing an enemy hero’s armor on hit for 6 seconds, stacking up to 12 times. Only the 2 bolts in the middle are capable of critical strikes, dealing additional damage equal to attack damage x (0.5 + 0.4 x [bolts hit -1])
Ability Mechanics:

  • Each bolt reduces target armor by 6 (+1 per level). Maximum armor reduction (level 15) is 20 * 12 = 240.
  • The damage listed is for each bolt’s normal damage. 1 bolt deals 0.5 AD, 2 deal a combined 0.9, 3 deal a combined 1.3, and all 4 deal out 1.7 AD damage.
  • The armor shred is applied in a peculiar manner – Rourke’s first attack doesn’t benefit from the armor reduction, but his second attack will benefit from two instances of armor reduction
  • Most abilities treat all of the bolts as a single attack. Scattershot’s armor shred is an exception, each bolt applying a stack. Spear of Longinus is an additional exception, applying two stacks per shot.
  • Bolts will damage the first enemy they connect with without regard to Rourke’s target.
  • While results will vary depending on the target’s size, Rourke will hit a hero with two bolts if attacking them at the edge of his range. This raies to three bolts at about 400 units and all four bolts at melee range of 200 units. This is all assuming that his shots are uninterrupted and made directly towards the target.
  • Deals 100% damage to structures (based on attack damage).

BOLT
Mana: 80
Physical Damage
Control
Rourke dashes forward and stops when he runs into an enemy 180 (+0.7 AD)ˀ physical damage to the target and all nearby enemies, also stunning them and knocking them back. If he runs into an enemy hero, the cooldown of this ability is reduced by 2 seconds.

Ultimate Effect
DETERMINATION
Mana: 130
Physical Damage
Control
Rourke dispels all control effects on himself and gains a shield that absorbs 1200 damage. While the shield is active, Rourke is immune to control effects and converts 50% of damage dealt to additional shield value (20% for monster and minions). Shield value may not exceed 150% of its original Rourke also gains 50 attack damage and 120 armor for 6 seconds.

Shield Points 1200 1800 2400
Cooldown 60 55 50
Attack Damage Increase 50 100 150
Armor Increase 120 180 240
Ability Mechanics:

  • Rourke maintains the attack damage and armor boosts if the shield is destroyed early.
  • Rourke can no longer gain shield points by attacking after the shield is destroyed.
  • Rourke’s Charged Shot receives the bonus attack damage from Determination even if Determination is activated second

In-Game Tool Tip

To play Rourke well, you must decide whether to poke from afar or burst in melee range. Don’t forget that both of his abilities provide distance adjustments. Be careful to avoid focused fire from enemies after using Determination.

I hate Rourke so much OP

Needs urgent nerf. Not only his damage is insane, but that shield is the most unfair thing in life.

How come i got stunned while using determination? i think it was Puera’s ult or somethink but i was still halfway through my determination charging when i suddenly got stunned

Does Rourke still count as Marksman and benefits from marksman weapons’s passive such as bow of slaughter and Claves Sancti?

Yes he does!
