DotA 2 Guide – Phantom Lancer Done Quick


Hey my name is Blinks, and this is how you
play Phantom Lancer. Phantom lancer is an agility-based melee hyper-carry.
His Q is a slowing nuke, his W is a stealthing escape mechanism, his E lets him create clones
of himself upon attacking, and his ultimate increases his magic resistance, increases
his chance of making clones, and lets his clones make clones of themselves. The key to playing phantom lancer well is
to focus on farming effectively early-game. As your clones get stat bonuses from the items
you have, getting your core items is essential, and should be prioritized over ganking & teamfighting.
If the enemy team comes to gank you while farming, use your W to safely get away and
either farm the jungle or wait until they leave to start farming again. Remember that you are strongest when you are
fighting with all of your clones up, and that enemies with strong AoE attacks like sven
or gyrocopter counter you very well, so try to stay away from them if possible. Clones
can also be sent into the jungle to farm creeps for you, and once you hit level 16, you only
need 1 or 2 clones to clear a creep camp, so you can stay in lane and keep farming enemy
creeps. Once you get a heart, you become virtually
unkillable, and can snowball into a hero that can 1v5 the enemy team. Remember to build
up clones on creeps prior to going into a team-fight to maximize your DPS, and not to
engage without your W being up, in case you need an escape. When leveling Phantom Lancer, Max W and Q
first, and then prioritize R>E over Stats. Grab a quelling blade early game to make last-hitting
easier, and then build into tranquill boots and ring of aquila. Keep farming until you
get a diffusal blade, and then build into a manta-style and heart. Try to focus on farming
until you have your diffusal blade, as it will make you and your clones a LOT scarier
in fights. Finally, click the link in the description below if you want to use this
build in-game.
