Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Tidehunter

  • Use Anchor Smash to secure last hits and damage the opponents at the same time.
  • The tougher the lane, the more points in Kraken Shell are needed.
  • Tidehunter is resilient against right clicks due to Kraken Shell. Typically you need a magic resistance item such as Mage Slayer, Pipe, or BKB.
  • Once you have Blink Dagger, make use of it before opponents are able to see it in your inventory.
  • Before initiating, make sure that your follow-up damage dealers are close enough and in position.
