Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Pangolier

  • Secure last hits and damage the opponents at the same time with Shield Crash.
  • Swashbuckle applies an extra hit if you pass through the opponent.
  • Be careful after you expend Swashbuckle as opponents are more likely to go on you.
  • During Rolling Thunder, turn rate is slightly improved after Shield Crash has been used.
  • Once you have Blink Dagger, use it immediately before opponents are able to see it in your inventory.
  • When not much is happening or Rolling Thunder is on cooldown, push out sidelines.
  • Pangolier is great at enabling an early Roshan kill due to Lucky Shot armor reduction and attack speed slow chance.
  • Pick up Aghanims Shard later in the game as it gives you another survivability tool and reliably channel Rolling Thunder.
