Key strategic elements to consider when playing Batrider
- Apply Sticky Napalm on opponents but also on the creeps at the same time. Batrider`s base damage is very low.
- When you have 3 Sticky Napalms on an opponent, you can consider making a kill attempt.
- Having Bottle charges, Faerie Fire or Healing Salve can allow you to dive under the tower.
- Batrider is good at clearing stacks early on. Encourage your teammates to make them for you.
- Focus on acquiring Boots of Travel and then start playing more actively.
- Sticky Napalm provides flying vision in its area of effect.
- Pick up Aghanim shard later in the game as you become a potent right clicker as a universal hero.
- Spam Sticky Napalm on the enemy mid laner to keep them low at all times. You need not worry about giving stick charges.
