Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Lion

  • Use Earth Spike strategically so that you can get extra right-clicks in, deny a creep or secure a last hit.
  • You can skill Hex on level 2 to score a kill.
  • Hex and Mana Drain destroy basic illusions instantly.
  • Make a move whenever you have Finger of Death available.
  • When Finger of Death is on cooldown, use the time to farm your Blink Dagger.
  • Initiate on enemies with your long lasting disables, so your allies can follow-up for a kill.
  • Fight around good vision, so you can land multi-hero Earth Spikes.
  • Aghanim`s Shard is good at countering illusion-based heroes.
  • Keep an eye on the mana pool of allies around you and top them up with Mana Drain if they are low on mana.
  • Position yourself to get an uninterrupted Mana Drain as a follow up on Earth Spike to harass enemy heroes from a distance.
