DotA 2 Guide – Shadow Fiend Done Quick


Hi, My name is Blinks, and this is how you
play Shadowfiend Shadowfiend is an agility based ranged carry.
His Q, W, and E abilities are ranged aoe nukes. His first passive, grants him bonus damage
for killing units and heroes. His second passive reduces the armor of nearby enemies, and his
Ultimate is a huge AOE attack with a 1-second channeled cast time. Last hits are more important for shadowfiend
than to most heroes, as they not only grant him gold, but bonus damage as well. This mechanic
can give shadowfiend a huge advantage early-game, but can also be a liability, as you lose half
your stored damage upon death. This can result in you not have high damage output if you
die a lot early game. Shadowfiend will dominate teamfights if he
is left alone. Since he doesn’t have any innate escape mechanisms, a shadowblade is
needed to let you play aggressively. It can be a great tool for initiating if you can
sneak into up to your enemies and get off an ultimate. Try to be in the center of teamfights
to fully utilize your armor-reducing aura and devastating ultimate, but don’t forget
that you still need to survive to do damage. When leveling Shadowfiend, put one point into
Necromastery, and then max your Q and Necromastery before you get your ultimate. At Level 9,
grab your ultimate and then prioritize it>presence of the dark lord>stats. As far
as items go, A shadowblade will give you a nice escape mechanism, and a bkb will ensure
that you are always able to get your ultimate off. Late-game options include butterfly,
manta-style, deadalus, or a heart for survivability.
