Spectre is a hard carry that uses items to kill her opponents. From desolating lonely enemies to walking through walls, Spectre is a chasing and killing machine. With the right items and play style, you can turn a weak wisp into an undead demon.

NOTE: THIS ITEM JUSTIFICATION GUIDE COVERS THE RECOMMENDED BUILD.
This build is based on you using your ultimate, finding a lone target and beating the **** out of them in a 1v1. This build also emphasizes movement speed.
|Since you already have damage from Phase Boots, getting a drum will buff your stats, and grant some bonus movement speed. This item is perfect because you are still pretty squishy and not very tanky.TEXT!|
|Ah, good old Diffusal Blade. The perfect item for Spectre, providing her with some nice agi bonuses and mana destroying passive that works with illusions. The purge is an active that can decide whether you get the kill. Use purge against mobile heroes like Slark or Spirit Breaker to chase them down, then desolate them and finish the kill.TEXT!|
The Manta provides some good bonuses for Spectre like the extra stats and movespeed. The best part is that your illusions also have desolate and feedback, so it makes you powerful in a team fight or 1v1. I recommend getting Diffusal Blade first, and then getting the gold for Manta will be easier.
Heart of Tarrasque
Tons of HP for a rather squishy hero is a great choice.
Another damage item, if you feel you need more damage.
Sange and Yasha
Damage and stats.
Many people tell you to rush this item but I disagree. Diffusal Blade works much better and Radiance's crafting items are far too expensive to save for unless you have some extra cash.
Another good choice that greatly increases your EHP.
|]: A nice skill to have. I finish this before 10 since the damage and chasing ability help you secure the kill. This skill is also a great escape mechanism [Almost typed mekanism lol] since you can move through places you normally cant. TEXT!|
|This is pretty much your main damage source until you get a diffusal since the bonus damage is considerably good early game, and if you harrass early game you dont have to chase far into the enemy base to get the kill, but I level it after a couple levels of dispersion since it isnt too good until you reach level 6.TEXT!|
|I get a couple levels in this to increase my tankiness during the creep phase.TEXT!|
The best thing about haunt is your illusions have all your passives. Don't waste haunt, use it in these certain scenarios:
- Team Fights with 3+ enemies
- A running hero with low health that your teammates can't get [Dont Killsteal!]
- Traveling to an area that needs saving [Towers, Teammates that are about to die]TEXT!
This build focuses on getting an extremely early Radiance.
-Awesome carrying ability
-Hard to predict
-Pure damage, *****ez.
-Low Damage early game
-Squishy early game
-Usually needs to be babysat in lane
During early game you should farm as MUCH AS YOU CAN!
Spectre is very farm dependent and you should try to get as many last hits as you can while avoiding enemy attacks.
Late game is a good time to jungle but forget jungling early game.
Dont solo roshan! you will never be strong enough to solo him by yourself. If you are doing well you can get aegis though.
Try to lane with a babysitter that will prevent you from getting harassed, and you wont need Tranquil Boots. Also, lane with a ranged hero, so your lane can fight back.
A bad combination: Spectre and Doom / Weaver and Death Prophet
You can jungle with the armlet build, but Spectre is not build to jungle. Jungle if you need to get the final 600 gold for your Sacred Relic for example, but do not get your farm from jungling.
Early Game : Get farm and try to get kill without death.
Mid Game: Get items, gank globally, teamfight gank.
Late Game: Haunt the enemies, make them suffer, hard carry pwnage.
Vanguard is a time waster. The health buff is nice, but the rest of it is not very useful compared to the cost. You can get this if jungling, but since this is not a jungling build, I would skip this item. If you want health, get a Vitality Booster.
Also, a Drum of Endurance usually covers the HP portion, but for the Jungle build you want the vanguard for the block.
I hope this guide was useful and that you are now a better Spectre player!
