Light Of The Omniknight - protect your team!

February 27, 2012


Hello ladys and gentlemen!!!
Welcome to my first guide ever in dota...
hope you will find it helpful!

I usually play support heroes when im with my friends and i find omniknight
one of the best support heroes in the game.

lets start....

Omniknight is a support hero period! , he is not an initiator and he is not a carry...
your job is to help your team with auras, healing, mana regen and disables(situational, depands on items choice).

i saw many guides that made him a carry/ganker....wrong...


Starting items:

Not much to say,
starting with ring of protaction (for basilius later on + def at start)
3x brunches (stats+ starter to wand)
and a courier

Laning phase:
first items that im buying is sage's maskso i could finish my basilius, this item is good for mana regen to both me and my team mate and provide a nice armor boost.

Next im buying magic stickand upgrades it to magic wand, this item is a life saver and good vs annoying nukers that spamm spells.

after i get those two i get soul ringas an early mana regenerate tool and boots
Now when i got all this i can start spamm heal like a boos and try to go for a kill with my lane mate if its possible.

later on i upgrade my boots to arcane boots
Post lane phase:
If every thing went well you should have arcane boots + basilius + wand + soul ring
really quick and start farming for your mekansm, i usually buy this item first after the core and than drum of endurance

Mid / late game:

Now its up to you to decide whats your team needs the most...
you lack of disablers? go for sheep stickor euls
You get focused alot?
get Linkensor heart


Not much to say about skill order...
i max heal first while having one point at repel early game and 1 point at degen aura...
after i max the heal and i get my ulti at level 6 i max out degen aura for a better hero "chase down"...

repel maximized last, but thats how i play it...
you dont need repel at max level till late game in my opinion, 1-2 points is enough...
