Deep amid the Upland crags and cliffs there runs a seam of sacred jade long foresworn by highland minders. From this rare material, the likeness of the great general Kaolin was carved and buried at the head of a stone funerary army ten thousand strong—a force of soldiers and holy men, jesters and acrobats, carved by crafstmen and entombed for millennia in the dark embrace of the Earth.
What the craftsmen had not known was that within the strange seam of jade flowed the spirit of the Earth itself—an elemental force at one with the planet. When the force within the carved jade found itself cut off from the life's blood of the world, it gathered its strength over the course of a thousand years and dug itself free and into the light. Now the great Kaolin Earth Spirit strides the Upland roads, fighting for the spirit of the Earth; and in times of need calls forth remnants of his buried army still locked in the loving embrace of the soil.
|Ability Name||Ability Description||Details|
|Boulder Smash||Earth Spirit smashes the target enemy or ally, sending them in the direction he is facing. If Earth Spirit targets an area, he will smash the nearest Stone Remnant in a 200 radius. The traveling unit or remnant damages all enemy units it hits. If an enemy is hit by a Stone Remnant, they are also stunned. Stone Remnants travel further than other units.|
It is with the power of a mountain that Earth Spirit strikes his enemies.
Unit Knockback Distance: 500/600/700/800
|Rolling Boulder||Earth Spirit gathers himself into a boulder and, after a 0.6s delay, rolls towards the target location, damaging enemy units. He will stop if he collides with an enemy hero or is stunned. If he rolls over a Stone Remnant, he will travel further and faster, and enemies hit by the boulder will have their movement speed slowed.|
Calling upon his connection to the land, the Earth Spirit draws loose stone to him, which forms a protective ball that he can use to roll short distances.
Stone Move Speed Slow: 80%
|Geomagnetic Grip||Earth Spirit pulls the target Stone Remnant or allied unit to his location. Enemies struck by the pulled target will be silenced, and take damage if the pulled target is a Stone Remnant.|
Like calls to like. Even the minerals found in the blood and bones of living beings are not immune to the call of the Earth Spirit.
Silence Duration: 2.5/3/3.5/4
|Stone Remnant||Call a Stone Remnant to the target location. Stones Remnants have no vision and are invulnerable, and can be used with Earth Spirit's abilities. Calling a Stone Remnant consumes a charge, which recharge over time.|

|Maximum stone charges: 6
Charge replenish time: 30
|Magnetize||Magnetizes units in a small nearby area, causing them to take damage for a short duration. Magnetized heroes cause nearby Stone Remnants to explode, destroying the remnant and refreshing Magnetize's duration on all nearby enemies. This process can repeat multiple times. If an enemy hero is affected silence or slows as a result of Geomagnetic Grip or Rolling Boulder, all magnetized heroes share the effects.|
Upgraded by Aghanim's Scepter: Enables the use of the Enchant Remnant ability.
At the Earth Spirit’s call, the minerals in the blood and bones of his enemies rebel against the bodies they find themselves in.
|Damage per Second: 50/75/100|
Stone Search Radius: 400
|Enchant Remnant||Earth Spirit temporarily enchants a hero, granting them the properties of a Stone Remnant. After 3 seconds the remnant shatters, releasing the hero and damaging nearby enemies.|

Damage Radius: 300
