Necrophos Guide - Introduction & Basics

Up to Date

Kyubashi's guide to Necrophos covers this extremely potent hero who, after his rework in patch 7.00 has been terrorizing pubs and even popping up in professional games.

Necrophos, or Necrolyte as he was known in Dota 1, is a powerful offensive and defensive magic hero. Despite his average stats, the Pope of Pestilence becomes a force to be reckoned with very quickly. His ability to simultaneously heal and deal damage with Death Pulse makes him a difficult hero to ignore in the chaos of team fights. Patch 7.00 replaced the Sadist ability with his new “w” Ghost Shroud which both slows and allows him to blink into the middle of a fight without taking physical damage. Kyubashi’s complete guide to Necro will cover the hero’s wide range of play styles and role possibilities. Stop the hearts of your opponents and eliminate them from the battlefield with a crushing blow from his ultimate Reaper’s Scythe. A master of punishing poor positioning and sustaining the ensuing push, it’s no wonder that the new Necrophos is now a plague upon pubs in all MMR brackets.
