Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Dragon Knight

  • Dragon Knight trades well in lane with his Corrosive dragon facet. Look to use that to pressure the enemy melee heroes.
  • Try to use Breathe Fire to secure ranged creeps during the laning stage.
  • Dragon Knight is great at taking buildings down early due to the Corrosive Breath facet amplified during dragon form with bonus right click damage added.
  • Once you get Blink Dagger, try to make use of it immediately before opponent see it in your inventory.
  • Make sure you have allies nearby when you initiate. Dragon Knight doesn`t do much burst damage.
  • Avoid fighting while Dragon Form is on cooldown. Push out lanes or play defensively.
  • Break effects and healing reductions are a big problem for Dragon Knight. Itemize against those.
