Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Shadow Demon

  • Use Shadow Poison from fog to not fill stick charges for opponents.
  • Don`t spam Shadow Poison unless you have mana and a chance to build up 5 stacks.
  • You can Disrupt an opponent`s core and deny a creep or two.
  • Shadow Poison is great for stacking multiple camps.
  • Demonic Purge is great for kitting spell-immune heroes and to dispel important buffs including runes.
  • Don`t show yourself at the start of the fight. Be quick at saving an ally with Disruption.
  • When not much is happening, push out the sidelines from the fog with Shadow Poison.
  • You can use Disruption on your cores to push out waves or to make deception plays.
  • Aghanim`s Scepter is a must in late game for kiting opponents and for break effect.
