Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Templar Assassin

  • Before the game starts make sure to share your units with your team so they can use your traps.
  • Consider skilling Meld on level 1 against melee match-ups.
  • Keep repositioning to Psi Blade the opponent when lasthitting.
  • Try to get your level 6 as soon as possible and force your opponent out of the lane.
  • Ask your teammates to stack for you, especially ancients as you can clear them early.
  • Psionic Traps provide vision, so place them on rune spots, Roshpit and other strategic spots.
  • You can stack with Psionic Traps but you need to be within the aggro range of neutral creeps.
  • Don`t rotate unnecessarily. Focus on hitting your item timings and pressure opponents` tower.
  • Focus on bursting squishy backliners and supports, especially with Blink Dagger.
  • Templar Assassin is great at taking Roshan early, Look for opportunities to rosh once you have desolator.
