Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Venomancer

  • Hit opponents regularly to apply ticking damage from Poison Sting.
  • Galed opponents can be denied, so do your best to secure a last hit on a dying hero.
  • Deny low health Plague Wards to deprive opponents of extra gold.
  • Venomancer is great at defending towers as you can place a bunch of Plague Wards around it.
  • Use Plague Wards off cd when you are moving around to scout, control runes and block camps.
  • Farm aggressively, as Plague Wards provide vision and farm dangerous spots for you along with gale and sting.
  • In fights, look to affect as many heroes as possible with Venomous Gale.
  • When not much is happening, push out the side lanes with Gale and Plague Wards.
  • Pick up Aghanims Scepter as the game progresses to significantly improve your teamfighting.
  • Noxious Plague will snowball a teamfight in your favour if you can burst down the first hero affected by it.
