Nocturne's basic attack is periodically enhanced, dealing 20% of his physical damage to his target and 120% of his physical damage to surrounding enemies, while also healing himself for 15−40 (+15% of ability power) per enemy hit (depending on level).

Umbra Blades' damage to the primary target can critically strike for bonus physical damage.

Damage and healing are reduced by 50% against minions.

Basic attacks reduce Umbra Blades' cooldown by 1 second, increased to 3 seconds against monsters and enemy champions.

Nocturne throws a shadow blade which deals 65 / 110 / 155 / 200 / 245 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage) physical damage, leaves a Dusk Trail, and causes champions who are hit to also leave a Dusk Trail for 5 seconds. While on the trail, Nocturne ignores unit collision and has 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% increased Movement Speed and 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 additional Attack Damage.

Passive: Nocturne empowers his blades, permanently gaining 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 % attack speed.

Active: Nocturne creates a magical shield for 1.5 seconds which will block the next enemy spell that hits him. If an ability is blocked by the shield, his passive attack speed is doubled for 5 seconds.

If Shroud of Darkness is active when Nocturne re-casts Paranoia to dash to a target, it'll stay active until Nocturne reaches his target.

Nocturne also gains massively increased movement speed when moving toward feared targets.
