Venomancer 1 on 1

VenomancerChoosing Venomancer on 1 0n 1 takes a lot of risk especially when the enemy is a disabler or nuker. I consider it lucky when it faces off a strength or agility type hero for the fact that almost all strength type heroes are melee ranged which gives a lot of advantage to Venomancer and agility type heroes which has low quantity of life and also favorable to him.

In my experience of using Venomancer, I found some way to match up with those disablers and stunners in 1 on 1 matches. I take advantage of casting Plague Wards which has a fast cooldown, low mana cost, and can't be damaged by spells. In my observation, the max Plague Wards you can use is 7-8 and imagine, each of them inflicts 42 damage and has a fine attack speed. With this advantage, creeps tends to attack the wards instead of you, and the effect is that you hold the lane by that ward. The main purpose of this wards is winning the game, not to kill enemy hero. Too bad for the enemies, the wards has much life and not that easy to kill. Just let me add some few tips, Plague Wards are affected by Mekansm, which means they are affected by Mekansm's instant life restoration. Isn't that great?

Continuing the process of casting Plague Wards, the effect would be winning the game with lots of great items to Venomancer. This strategy is also a good farming technique. You got a very high chance of last hitting creeps and even towers. Also, if you want to kill Roshan with ease, just use Plague Wards again and let him attack the wards. Don't forget to continue casting wards until Roshan dies.

These are the items you might end up with Venomancer in this strategy:
  • Linken's Sphere
  • Boots of Travel
  • Butterfly
  • Mjolnir
  • Buriza
  • Aghanim's Scepter

I played DotA before (out of curiosity). Well, this character is hard to control and there's an item to be avoided if you use venomancer ..cant remember it but it disables venomancer's ability to "paralyze" the enemy..
