Ok so another one of the moba’s (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) I play is Dota 2, Dota 2 is the next game from Dota allstars from Icefrog a warcraft 3 map. I want to post this because I’ve played for a while Dota 2 now and I wanna say it’s the hardest moba I’ve ever played.
In this game one player geared enough can make a penta kill very easily, take for example phantom assasin with Skull Basher, Vladimir’s Offering, Butterfly, Power treads, Deadalus and Black King Bar, this is one of my builds that you can’t even counter I mean she is immune to spells while Black King Bar is active and the other damaging + lifestealing effects really tear one by one any opponent.
Of course there could be a N’aix around there very well geared up and destroying everything but N’aix is actually a tank shredder more than a assasin shredder so Phantom assasin with his evasion spell and the butterfly effect could easily dodge almost all of N’aix’s attacks in my opinion.
Not to mention her ultimate wich is almost 4X critical strike you can crit above 1k damage easily plus the added critical strike from the items, seems a good combination.
The added stun effect from Skull Basher wich can be improved in Abyssal Blade, has stun effects on click and has a cooldown, so there is a chance to crit enhanced by items a chance to stun opponents on hit an a chance to dodge enemy attacks also enchanced by items, the lifesteal is for some extra life boost in difficult situations where you need survivability and added with the Black King Bar wich means immune to stun effects and spells for about 10 seconds you are unstoppable.
This is just one example I tell you guys about dota 2 and how I play mortred the phantom assasin, I haven’t recorded any videos yet because I’m thinking that my recorder wouldn’t work properly on dota, or if I think about it better I should try it, but as I said Dota 2 is a really hard game for me and not always do I perform my best, I know all the tactical strategies but my reflexes got a little rusty in the game.
I’ve been so well accustomed to Heroes of the Storm that I haven’t played Dota 2 for a while because I can’t play all the games at once every time lol.
So my point with mortred is that in Dota 2 you have the capability with one super overpowered and geared hero to finish all your enemies very fast and win the game for your team, alothough farming in jungle is a fast way to make gold the best way to earn gold is by defeating enemies that’s the highest gold ranking especially when you’re with mortred so I would play like this:
- try getting some items early with some gold farmed from minions
- try scoring a kill for your team
- and try to actually snowball from enemy kills and minions
I think farming in jungle is overrated in Dota 2 because you can get easily ganked, and yes you can get ganked or gank them yourself it’s up to you if you’re a slowpoke or a real quick player.
I usually try to tank them as soon as I get some movement speed and after that I return to base or something like that in order to avoid further conflict on the map.
It’s pretty hard to defeat someone who is like 2v1 or 3v1 unless your very geared and a fast gamer, I don’t usually put that much effort into playing, If I’m not having fun I won’t play it but that dosn’t mean I’m gonna exit the game when I’m losing, I usually finish the game and after that I’m deciding on what to play or something to do with my spare time.
I always play agility heroes in Dota 2 I don’t really like intellect or strenght heroes, My preferences are Agility>Strenght>Intellect, in this order so yeah me playing Slark and being invisible on the map all the time with Shadow Blade really is my style of playing.
I used to play Troll Warlord allot but with the new chances I kinda preferred something else I usually opted for Drow ranger as a ranged assasin or adc as you would call it 🙂
