Gaming is not just a hobby you know?:)

Shandelzare Silkwood The Vengeful Spirit

I. Introduction

Stuner and a very good carry hero, that nomination would come to Vengeful Spirit. Best stuner in dota, AoE skill to decrease enemy base attack and armor, a massive aura that add 36% to your attack, and last a swap skill. Even though she is good, but there are some people, don’t know how to maximize her. Some take stats and stun early, or terror, then aura. Others take aura and stun. Furthermore the item build could be wrong, take a look at vanguard, lothar edge, arcane ring, dagon. There are some ite list that sometimes will make you laugh. Okay she is fragile but we don’t need vanguard anymore, arcane ring, we don’t need those plenty mana. Why do we need that? See my guide and i will tell the proper build.

IV. How To Play

I think Vengeful Spirit is one of the easiest hero to use but hold a big role in the game. The different things between her and all other stuner is swap and aura. Command aura boost attack from your total damage, different with empower and all other attack booster. Swap can steal away enemy and kill them one by one, making the battle easier. But one thing that you should do and learn from now is “Who is the right hero that should you swapped?” Swapping a tanker hero could be a nightmare since it means you do what exactly enemy wants to. Swap a killer can be a good idea but sometimes not. Most killer hero can run away easily with Lothar or any other skill like blink. Swap a carry hero? yeah that’s the good one. Carry hero need friend to be carried but no one carry him. So kill a babysitter is better than kill the baby isn’t it? That’s the general things, now a short guide what you must to do from early to late.

Early Game : deny and kill creep well. Harass enemy with magic missile if you can. Otherwise, keep your health bar green. If you can get lvl 6 with no death, time to go mobile. Support your teammate that need some help. 225 damage and 1.5 stun duration is a pain in early. Swap him if you’re not sure he will be dead.

Get this item and go mobile.

Boots of SpeedEmpty BottleBracer

Middle Game : Ganking is a little harder now, so push could be the answer. With command aura, i don’t think push is take a long time. Destroy enemy 2nd tower and you can farm a lil bit easier. This time get Lothar, you don’t want to be sacrificed when swapping enemy,won’t you?

Lothar`s Edge
Empty BottleBracerBoots of Speed

if you have a hard time to farm it, get Vanguard. You should not be the first one to dead since your team need your command aura.



Late Game : Push, and kill as fast as possible in this stage. VS has lost her main purpose in here as stuner but not as swapper. Secure yourself with Lothar after swap then stun enemy that you’ve been swapped.

Some hp booster needed here. So we get EoS, or if you can survive well, get Butterfly. 30% miss rate will make you a bit killer in late. Upgrade boots to travel if you have more money. This will make you increase your survivability.

V. Allies And Enemies

Best Allies :


Tiny - The Stone GiantRaigor Stonehoof - The EarthshakerSven - The RogueknightRexxar - The BeastmasterBradwarden - The Centaur Warchief

Worst Enemies :

Purist Thunderwrath - The Omniknight

repelled hero can’t be swapped. A dead trap for VS.

Any Silencer

Krobelus - The Death ProphetLucifer - The Doom BringerNortrom - The SilencerRikimaru - The Stealth Assassin

Silence means no magic, no swap, no stun. VS without swap and stun is a dumb.
