Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Storm Spirit

  • Rune control is very important. Arcane and Regeneration runes can easily win you the fight or allow you to get a pick-off.
  • Stack the nearest jungle camp and clear it after addressing lane creeps. It is very important to hit level 6 as soon as possible to make yourself less gankable.
  • If you have a really good start, get Orchid as soon as possible. It will allow you to pick-off most of the heroes on the map.
  • You can right-click and use spells and items during Ball Lightning, including teleport.
  • Mana management is the key. The more mana you have the more damage you can do. Be full mana if you expect fight to break out.
  • Don`t spend all of your mana on initial jump. Preserve some to be able to disengage.
  • When leaving the fountain, you can Ball Lightning beyond tier 4 towers while bottling and still be full mana.
  • Target backliners. They are squishy and Storm has no issue gap-closing.
  • Static Remnant provides flying vision around itself which can be useful to scout Roshan or rune spawn and give you vision in tree lines.
  • Ball Lightning destroys trees in its path.
  • Storm Spirit is one of the best Aegis/Cheese carriers as he utilizes the mana he gets back really well.
  • Level 20 Vortex talent along with Aghanim`s Scepter mimics Reverse Polarity but on 16s cooldown.
  • In late game you can fly over and kill the creeps that opponents are looking to push with.
