    I just loaded the game and checked the tooltip on the card. That's the dota2 tooltip. Wiki isn't an official source so it could say it does 5000damage and it still wouldn't matter. Playdota is also often outdated or confusing.

    Ingame description:
    Summons dark energies around an ally unit, creating a shield that absorbs a set amount of damage before expiring. When the shield is destroyed it will burst and deal damage equal to the amount it could absorb to an area around it...

    So basically the wiki probably uses an early version of the tooltip from test, since it was originally only exploding for the amount it absorbed and was later fixed since it's supposed to explode for full damage.

      Earlier, it wasn't exploding at the end if the shield didn't absorb enough damage ==> misleading tooltip about "dealing damage equal to damage absorbed" assuming it will always absorb 200(or less if not lvl4) damage.

      After that it was changed to always explode at the end of the duration if it didn't earlier, dealing the same damage (and without changing the tooltip).

        Well I guess it's clear for me now even though it makes very little sense. Thanks for explaining everything to me.
