Dota 2, Hero Specific tips and tricks

Naga siren

Use Omniknight’s Repel on enemies

Another great use is to Repel an enemy right before an allied Naga Siren ults - that hero won't be affected by the Song, so you can go right-click him to death before the Song ends, at which point the resulting team fight is 5v4, and, of course, you still have the opportunity to initiate with a perfect Echo Slam, Black Hole, Ravage, or what have you.


Don't know that it's that unknown, but for Treant, his Nature's Guise says "spells" in the description, but item usage doesn't break his invisibility either. Blink into ult, landing next to some trees, and you'll be invisible throughout.


Bloodseeker's thirst lasts for about a full second after the hero you were thirsting on dies, use it to get away after a towerdive.

Nature Prophet

TP out of team fights safely by casting Sprout on yourself and teleporting out.

Walkways and ramps? Most are the perfect size to be blocked by a well-placed sprout.

Sprout gives vision as well: Cast up hills for a limited view of what's to come. Gives flying vision!

Sprout towers to block some (depending on attack range) melee attacks while allowing the tower to continue attacking.

(Obvious) Sprout is usable treant fuel, so use while pushing towers.

Teleport can be canceled, so use its obvious animation to intimidate enemies off your team members or force an enemy to TP to defend.

(Another obvious one) Cast your ultimate on the opposite side of the map so that it hits the target enemy with more damage as it bounces.

Chaos Knight

They will receive all of the strength and health etc bonuses without any life loss. Then turn if off if not needed.


Grab an illusion rune early on to jungle a medium camp. .

Invoker's Tornado can dispell runes or reveal treant's invised units.

Tiny can Toss the creep camps onto allied creeps to pull large camps you normally couldnt.


when you use a spell with storm, if you already have a projectile en-route to an enemy, it will overcharge the attack mid-air


The spot on yourself then immediately use a teleport scroll. In theory, the tp scroll takes you to the base and the X pops you back in the lane a second later.

Puck - Blink dagger is usable during phase shift.

Clockwork - Clock's ult hits in an AoE Similar to Sven's stun

Shadow Fiend - Shadow Fiend gains souls off denies

Axe - Axe can ult couriers!


you chase the single enemy and toss him back in the middle of your teammates

(Toss also damages tower, so if you are fear of deny by invis or something like that, you just toss anything near to tower)


Also, while charging, if the person getting charged at goes invis, you will still charge and stun him when you reach him. Use a dust when you arrive.

Dark pact (slark)

Since dark pact has a 1.5-second delay, if timed right, it can be used to escape stuns.

An example is CK's stun, if you dark pact right before it hits you, even if it is a 4-second stun, you should break out of it in about a half a second.

Queen of pain's shadow strike is not dispelled by slark's purge. This makes QoP a very good lane counter to him, as well as denying him his ult regen for the duration of shadow strike.

Not hero specific but if you have lost stats due to a spell (like undying's decay) this is the best time to regen that stat. Eating a tango while under decay will net you more health than without decay, likewise, a clarity when losing int due to astral imprison will net you more mana.


As Disruptor, try to be aware at their tower, if an enemy use tp on it, use immediately your W to get him back to base, making him lose money, exp and gold for the farm (on mid is hilarious, people get so mad).
