Passive- Shark bite
•Every 6 seconds bane's blade is infused with tidal energy. When active his next basic attack deals 60-90% extra damage and deals additional splash damage to nearby enemies.
• When you attack an enemy with a skill an 'ink’ will appear on them attacking enemies with ink mark will reduce Shark Bites Cooldown
When you see his blade shining it means his passive is active.
Ink mark appears on enemy heroes and jungle monsters when you use your skills on them.
The splash damage from his passive also splashes on the turrets so you can use it for pushing.
•It is advised to ink mark an enemy before basic attacking them so that you can spam your basic attacks.
•You can use your passive to last hit an escaping enemy and minions.
