Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Medusa

  • Secure ranged creep with Mystic Snake if contested.
  • In order to get most of the mana back, Mystic snake needs to hit heroes and ranged creeps.
  • Ask your teammates to stack for you as you can clear them early.
  • From level 5, you can start clearing lane creeps quickly and farming camps nearby to accelerate your farm.
  • If possible, farm two neutral camps at the same time with Split Shot and Mystic Snake.
  • You don`t have to skill Stone Gaze at level 6 unless you feel like you might be in danger.
  • If a neutral camp consists of multiple creeps with mana pools, Mystic Snake can regain you a lot of mana.
  • Use Manta Style with Split Shot on to farm extra creepwaves that you can`t with your hero.
  • You need not rush Stone Gaze usage in the fights. Make sure opponents are committed to the fight before you pop it.
  • Position yourself in the center of the fight to Split Shot multiple heros. Medusa does mediocre single-target damage.
  • Mana burn is a big problem for Medusa. You can itemize against it or adapt the playstyle.
  • If things are going rough, consider purchasing Divine Rapier. Works well with Split Shot.
  • Your mana pool also acts as your HP pool. So remain aware of your current mana and keep it high with clarities and lotuses.
