Alright, since there's no DotA Thread yet, I decided to make one. I was hoping some other WarCraft III would enjoy exchanging DotA strategies. If anyone who plays Wc3: Frozen Throne online, they should know about DotA, the game pretty much "sweeping" our Wc3 community. It's not exactly new, but they update it every so often, to keep it interesting. If anyone else plays, post on here, and let me at least know you're out there. x_X; Another thing: If you have never played DotA before, don't reply to this. I want to keep it spam-free, if possible. Also, don't think me weird for the things I talk about. It's really quite fun when you get into it.
Okay, here we go:
Lately, I've been using Lion, the Witch... Guy. O_o; I found his Finger of Death special really very good. Of course, it lacks range, but more than makes up for damage. At Level 3, 800 damage(!). I recently compared it with the Dwarven Sniper's special, level three, and found it to be slightly better. Thought the Dwarf can fire his shot from a range, and without being seen, Lion's special is exceptional in ganks and the like.
Another hero that has my attention is the Crystal Maiden. I found her skills very useful in that you can stop their movement, then Nova them, to slow, then cast her special, a pretty much unstoppable combination. The only thing she really lacks, though, is health, which can be a major issue. I usually get a few Point Boosters to increase both her mana and health, for a bargain. Of course, she also needs a Void Stone ( I use 2 >_>; ).
On the hero popularity subject, I found Luna Moonfang, the Moon Priestess, being used a lot more. I have never personally used her, but I've seen her in action before. He special is a force to be reckoned with, to say the least. She can deal damage to units in a group for humongous damage. Gets me every time. x_X;
My latest combination attackers would have to be Sven and Crixalis. Sven stuns for a few seconds, both attack, Crixalis Burrow Strikes, stuns for a few seconds, Sven attacks more, Crixalis uses Epicenter. Totally awesome combo when seen. x_X; There is, like, no escape.
