SG Notes
1: Any damage taken from any ability will trigger Shatter. For example, a single cast of Zephys’ Death’s Flurry or Ormarr’s Walking Tall can trigger all five stacks. Abilities that enhance attacks, like Arthur’s Righteous Fervor, automatically stack twice.
2: Unlike Veera’s passive, the armor reduction is applied after damage calculation rather than before.

This item gives your beefy front liners the ability to weaken the opposing tanks while improving their own tankiness at the same time. Spear of Longinus’ wielder’s normal attacks and abilities remove enemies’ armor, effectively giving your entire team a pierce effect (read more about calculating pierce damage or how pierce percentages are calculated). Its high cooldown reduction also allows its wielder to cast their abilities more consistently.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Generally warriors and front liners who deal physical damage like Ormarr, Thane, and Arthur (surprisingly, we found in testing that Ormarr’s Unstoppable consistently removed 150 armor in one hit, though we’re not sure if that’s intended). An enemy can not go above five stacks of armor reduction, even if multiple heroes on the team use the item. As a result, check your teammates’ items before blindly purchasing the spear.

  1. Question, does the burning damage from the Mantle of Ra/Leviathan trigger the armor reduction? Same question for mail of pain and other damaging items.
