  • Each instance of damage received is stored and dealt individually by Ignore Pain, regardless on when other instances of damage were taken.

Map-Specific Differences

Arena icon Arena differences edit
  • Ability haste changed to 10.
  • Attack damage changed to 45.
  • Defy heal changed to 50% bonus AD.
  • New Effect: Defy's heal now scales with 30% AP.


  • Death's Dance's Death's Dance's damage mitigation passive is most effective in a situation where an enemy inflicts a lot of damage to you within a short period of time.
    • As a result of this, a portion of the damage they deal to you gets stored and is delayed until a few seconds after. This slightly increases your time to react and deploy counter measures such as by healing and shielding. At the same time, you have a longer time window for retaliation against the enemy who dealt that damage to you. Killing that enemy allows you to successfully mitigate that damage taken and additionally heal.
  • Death's Dance's Death's Dance's damage reduction should not be overestimated if enemies have more than enough damage to kill you. This means it is possible for you to be killed even while reducing damage, and in some cases that stored damage will deal lethal damage.
