    Funny story, those were from a streak a month or so ago when i became determined to learn how to play invoker.

    I eventually got the hang of him after three wins where I was genuinely useful.
    Form then on I decided that I would try lots of other hero's so I don't get "over specialised" in Invoker.


    And tornado + EMP is overated.

    I work best with Cold snap, Forge spirits and maximum damage (full exort) You do damn near 200 damage a shot THEN you add in the buffs you get form items THEN you ad the damage from two forged spirits THEN you take into account the armour reduction the spirits dish out.

    I should really play him some more.
    Cold Snap and Alacrity is really underrated.

    Nah, it's actually just really, really good.

    Although EMP isn't really worth it unless there is a big push coming from the enemy, or you're teamfighting, it is still incredibly powerful when used. Tornado + Cold Snap is incredible for ganking. Tornado to let your allies get in position and deal significant damage, and Cold Snap to ensure a target's death if he's being attacked by two or more people. The MS from Wex lets you gank quickly, and you've got Ice Wall and Deafening Blast that are very effective regardless of Exort's level.


    On another note, laning as Obsidan/Outworld Destroyer against a Skeleton King is pretty fun!

    Something pretty important is missing here...

    Chances are, you won't find a spare key here because we've used up ours and have given the spares to our friends.

    And if we did, why would we give a key for a hat we don't want?

    Edited:

    More importantly, a hat we won't ever touch.

    And if you're wondering about the Boots of travel.

    That's because we has pushed so hard, so early i wanted to just get back into the fight and keep the pressure on.

    Sort of worked too.
    You know boots of travel is one of the best boots on Lina, right? Makes for really efficient ganking and teamfights.

    Boots of Travel is best on any hero, but it's not viable early game*.

    You're right actually, never thought his ult; higher duration and regen.

    Though, I don't remember if it can stop magic damage or not.

    what omni ult does is give a fuckload of armour, so magic shit still hurts quite a bit

    and repel doesn't block spells such as pudge's hook, as in, it hooks you but deals no damage

    he doesnt even need to pop his ult, he can just stick a repel on u and your main counters (nukers) are useless, plus it means you dont take damage from your ult.

    it blocks the damage, not the pull. it also means youre immune to rot and any nasty stuns the enemy team had planned, so theres not much point in even launching it

    Even though I've only played a few games as invoker, I usually just start with tornado/emp then later game just go in with ghost walk/emp then if I have aghanims I just finish off with ice wall, meatball and sonic wave.

    As Boat said, Huskar + Omni is amazing. Did it for 2 matches straight and won both of them. Making huskar take no damage from his own ulti is pretty useful when you are constant ganking.

    No matter how good you are or how good you do, 1 shitty teammate will ruin everything you hold dear in that game.

    Playing DotA 2 without a full team is like stabbing yourself with a knife expecting no pain.

    Most frustrating game ever.
