    just played an intense game against mega creeps that lasted 90 minutes, against a wyvern who made it difficult, was curious about what can go through cold embrace aside from nukes

    Physical damage is blocked. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Omnislash deals physical damage, so it can't harm units during cold embrace.

    Only Chain Lightning procs from Maelstrom/Mjolnir goes through Cold Embrace during Omnislash.

    MKB damage too as it is considered magic, no?

    ^and yes

    On hit effects work. For instance, manaburn from diffusal will deplete mana but deal no damage. Oh and basher procs deal DMG as well.

    Well Cleave also goes through, and you can get a lot more damage out that way. You would have to hit units in front of the Embraced hero to cleave onto it.

    Note that most of the slashes in Omnislash are not real attacks, just triggered physical damage, and thus will not trigger any on-hit effects.

    Did you test cleave? I thought it worked like GA in Dota2

    He probably is talking about DotA1.

    In Dota2, cleave is regular physical damage which just bypasses armor value. Cold Embrace negates physical damage (not via armor), so it blocks cleave.

    Yeah, my mistake.

    There is pretty much no way you can realistically deal more damage to an enemy who is Cold Embraced with Omnislash or with attacks than with Blade Fury.

    Wait, what about MKB?

    Isn't there some sort rule like magic bash, physical damage = ranged and magic damage, physical bash= melee?

    Dota is slightly different from Dota 2, my question was regarding Dota 1.
