Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Riki

  • Use Blink Strike to secure ranged creep last hits.
  • When in trouble, blink away, Tricks of Trade over a cliff or in treeline, or Smoke Screen and teleport out.
  • Check opponents` inventories frequently for detection.
  • Avoid passing by spots that are typically sentried like rune or pillar spots.
  • Prioritize dealing with backliners and supports as Riki is great at gap-closing.
  • Take your time to farm the Diffusal Blade which will significantly improve your pick-off potential.
  • Pick up Aghanims Shard around minute 15 to isolate enemy heroes stuck in Smoke from getting help.
