Hello and Welcome to my Guide for Ogre Magi. There are two skill builds so be sure to check out both. Ogre Magi is a noob friendly Intelligence hero with a melee attack animation. He has been classified as several things a Roamer, a Support and a Semi-Carry. I'll show you how I play this hero as such minus the latter (Although Multicast can be unpredictable).
1Q: Fireblast - This is Ogre Magi's key ability in that it is a stun with decent damage attached. This will be used for Ganks as well as any opportune CC moment that may arise in the game. Paired with Multi Cast this ability has the power to not only stun but to destroy opponents, as it inflicts the damage multiplied as well as the stun.(Multi Cast applies with this ability every 0.3 seconds by the multiplier)
2W: Ignite - This ability is more effective because it has a slow, yes the damage is useful; however, as a roaming hero or a support this slow will allow you to help pick up kills for your team and also help you save either yourself or a teammate in a chasing scenario. (Multi Cast recreates this ability as an AoE)
3E: Bloodlust - This is high support ability. In my alternative build I get this to pump up my laning partner and my team in team fights. MS and AS makes a ton of difference for most heroes and especially those auto attack carries. Be sure to spread the joy of lust to your team. (Multi Cast allies will be selected randomly in an 575 AoE to be Bloodlusted.
4R:Multi Cast - This is Ogre Magi's signature ability and also his ultimate. Although this ability is glorious when it procs, it should not be treated as a guarantee. Always remember that this ability is not a 100% successful proc and to make sure that you do not make this out to be a factor in a fight. Treat every fight as if Multi Cast does not even exist, and when it does proc, capitalize on the opportunity.
Special: - Unrefined Fireblast this is a wave version of Fireblast that does increased damage and stuns as well. This ability is only obtained by purchasing an Aghanim's Scepter which I do not personally recommend. It's an expensive item and I feel as if there are better options available.
Ogre Magi is a great Ganker, Support, Roamer and just a solid pick in benefiting a team overall. Keep in mind a few things while playing Ogre Magi. You are still warding for your team, you are not a hard carry, you are very useful so make sure you are not absent from the majority of fights, play smart, don't be selfish, DO NOT rely on Multi Cast, treat it as a luxury proc.
