Middle Ember spirit - Vigloss dota 1 style
May 7, 2014
Escape with Ember's ultimate
Battlefury cleeve stacks, when you have 3 of them you will get 105 % cleeve. Imagine a SoF in a big creepwave, 4 enemy heroes + illusions and 5 meepos. It's a one-attack-ramapge:) (even better if you got buffed by magnus before)
Use SoF to dodge spells and ganks. Dont forget to use the SoF to get ur Searing chains as a ranged 2 man stun with big dmg output earlygame. Vs heroes with early magic damage like ex. pudge : forget about SoF and skill Flame Guard instead for easy lane win.
Use searing chains as a ranged stun by click it during the fist. Depending on where he is in his chain he will stun 2 targets close to him. So if 2 enemies running away from you (not close to any creeps), use the fist and make sure u have good timing and hit the chains in it. If the enemy turn the fight, escape with your already prepared spirit. Use your bottle/battlefury regen and get back to fight instead of go to your fountain and reg(like Ember noobs do). Enemy might think ur out of fight when you just used ulti to escape, but ops...there he is again with full hp (and another escape spirit placed on a safe place). Repeat until fight is over.
Always have a spirit out so you can escape when beeing ganked, farm on dangerous places and escape before they hurt you. Dont use ulti to attack in teamfights, only use it to hunt and escape. Warding is a big key for this hero to get farmed.
Many people says mass battlefury is bad, but its not. You never have to walk back to base, unlimited mana and hp with huge regen. Your cleeve stack good and if enemy is standing in a creepwave hes probly dead on one attack.
When to pick Ember spirit for middle lane:
If enemy has a melee mid hero (Pudge, Sandking or Tidehunter), you can't fail.
If enemy team has many low hp heroes, you will get many 1 hit K.O's in mid and lategame.
When to not pick Ember spirit for middle lane:
If enemy has a huge dmg ranged middler (Invoker, Destroyer or Batrider).
If enemy has good silence heroes (Silencer, Doom, Drowranger or Dead prophet).
When you must pick Ember spirit for middle:
If enemy has Meepo, Enigma or Natures prophet as soon as you got some battlefury - KILLS.
