Enigma is a ranged intelligence Hero. Has an ability to jungle really early thanks to his Demonic conversion that provides fast EXP and Money. And his eidolon will heal and Multiply each 6 attacks on enemy heroes/creeps. In the early game his eidolons can be considered as a powerful unit and can block the pathways. And his Ultimate BLACK HOLE is a game changing ability because of its kinda large radius and it's DPS that works wonders with some heroes.

Remember that Enigma is not for a Solo fighting, and does NOT KS any heroes prey because he only works in a large AOE.


Nothing is known of Enigma�s background. There are only stories and legends, most of them apocryphal, passed down through the ages. In truth, Enigma is a mystery for whom the only true biography is description: he is a universal force, a consumer of worlds. He is a being of the void, at times corporeal, other times ethereal. A beast between the planes.

There are stories that say he was once a great alchemist who tried to unlock the secrets of the universe and was cursed for his arrogance. Other legends tell that he is an ancient being of strange gravity, the abyss personified�a twisted voice from out the original darkness, before the first light in the universe. And there are older legends that say he is the first collapsed star, a black hole grown complicated and sentient�his motivations unknowable, his power inexorable, a force of destruction unleashed upon existence itself.


In the early game Buy a ring of balilius and 2 clarities to help your need of mana. After you collect enough mana build a Soul ring to help the Regen of mana and health if your out of juice. But don't forget to help your lane by Converting the Mechanical units cause of its extra Gold to help your Gold Gain.

Finish your Jungling after you reach level 8 and push our Lane HARD with your eidolons. You could rather pick a Power Threads or Arcane Boots bu i prefer arcane Boots because it can help you and your Teams mana needs by its 135 mana burst for each activation. After getting the Boots you SHOULD and MUST get BLINK DAGGER that works as a Surprise element and as your ONLY escape mechanism to avoid those Heroes that can easily chase and hunt you down. with these items tou should be swimming in the Gold right now then Buy a Black King Bar to make you immune to magic that can stop you from casting a Black Hole.


This guy is really focused on every TeamFight because of his talent on disabling every enemy Heroes even those with the magic immunity and those are really game changing. So on every fight make the best for assisting a kill and earn some gold or kill them on the teamfight. If you have money race for a refresher orb then get a aghanim scepter to add damage to your Blackhole and make it twice as longer. If you have excess money save it for a buyback OR get a Shiva's Guard that can be casted while Black Holing.

Ranked Play

The 5- man black hole: Why he hates Rubick: Beautifully played Enigma: How to achieve a lot of DPS: Even though it's Russsian just watch it LOL
How friends work:

Who doesn't like some BONUS

Pros / Cons

-Easier to jungle
-Eidolons have good damage on the early game
-Can Disable enemies more than than 4.0 seconds
-Nice AOE damage
-Game changing character

-Needs to land each Black Hole carefully and can trap a lot of enemy heroes
-Thirsts of mana on early game
-Long cooldown ultimate.
-Cannot escape without Blink dagger
-His ultimate will not effect those with BKB, but they will be still disabled

Creeping / Jungling

Jungling is the phase that most of enigma player's go through to get More EXP and Gold without getting killed or damaged. that's the reason but easy to surprise and kill because he has no escape mechanisms except stunning the enemy that wont do much effect so you can still chase and kill him. I would only go back in the lane when they have more creeps than my lane OR when there is a Mechanical unit ( i think i already mentioned it ) so yeah thats it. The end of your Lane / Jungle phase and then you can help initiate a fight with your BlackHole and the rest of the team.

Team Work

In every Teamfight always deploy the Midnight Pulse in the area where the enemy and your team will collide and beat each other, This skill can almost wipe half of the enemies health and deal MORE damage if you cast a Black Hole on it. But if you want to convert a creep into an Eidolons are fine because they can deal much damage and bunch up... that can outnumber the enemy and force them back or kill them as a bonus And can last hit enemies that tries to run away from you. Enigma can chase an enemy unit (if he has a blink dagger) and stun them to wait for you from some seconds. If you have a refresher to the same combo - Convert - Midnight pulse - Black Hole and when the black Hoole's dutation is about to run out activate Refresher and let those enemy SUFFER... and do a Rage quit and disconnect :v (same combo's apply when aghanim scepter is in hand's). And mostly you cancast a Shiva's guard while Black Holing. But one thing Enigma hates when he Black Hole's id a Blademail... because it will return MASSIVE damage back to enigma and make him run away when he is in the middle of the teamfight. So... when the enemy team has a fully farmed Enigma you can ask your enemy to buy a Blademail EACH to counter him.. GO GO GO team Blademail.

Remember your Team cannot only rely on your Ulti on each teamfight because it's in on cooldown so let the Carries farm and don't kill everyone...
I, myself have made a Fully farmed Enigma but my team Carries got under farmed because a LOT of people died in my Blackhole or when i chased them with a Blink dagger and ended them. So the point is to Think about the others and don't be selfish

Friends for a perfect Blackhole

MAGNUS: - All hail the horn of Magnus, this rhino can gather all of the enemy in one spot and deals large damage with a Enigma
Warlock: let his Golems finish them up...
Disruptor: Kills like Everyone
Crystal maiden: DISCO with her ULTI

Other people that can help him are:
Kunkka, Tidehunter, Lich, Meepo, Winter Wyvern, Sven and many more...

Vengeful spirit: I'm not going switch with you... her Ulti can stop your Blavk Hole
DOOM: Hmmpph HHmmnnnnhhh (silenced) you know what happened
