What’s currently missing

Hey guys! So Phoenix came out in Dota 2 recently and this guide EXPLODED in the number of views. Thank you for all the kind words! I have compiled here a list of what’s currently missing (I will work on these soon!)

– Pictures

– More hero Matchups

– Assorted Tips and Tricks (This chapter will be added to slowly as - Free Game Cheats Phoenix has an enormous skillcap depending on his items)

– Any other special section you guys would like me to explain. (Just leave me a comment and I’ll get on to it ASAP)

Introduction

Who am I?

No one really. Just a guy with a lot of time spent in Dota 2 waiting for his beloved fiery chicken to be ported over. As of theWraith-Nightupdate, His texture work has begun, so i thought about writing my first ever guide in Dotafire! If there are any mistakes or corrections you wish to point out (I know how fanatical Phoenix fans can get) don’t hesitate to leave a comment!

Apart from this being my first guide, Phoenix isn’t actually in Dota 2 yet, so please forgive me for lacking important things such as pictures and icons

Edit – HE’S NOW IN DOTA 2. AND HIS MODEL IS BADASS. HURRAY!

Summary

Why Would I Want To Play Phoenix?

Why would I want to play Phoenix? Is that a question? Seriously?
Well then. Looks like I have some questions for YOU.

Do you like having immense amounts of firepower?
Do you like cheating death?
Do you like the idea of swooping around the battlefield, cackling and firing off nukes?
Do you like to live dangerously?
Do you like looking flashy and cool while playing Dota?
Does the thought of owning a high-powered laser excite you?
Do you hate Tanky McUnkillable heroes as much as I do?

If you answered yes to at least 3 of those questions, boy do I have a hero for you.

bg 01 - Free Game Cheats

Equipped with searing hot damage in every spell, powerful zoning tools, a fantastic heal, a pure

damage and percentage based (and long ranged) laser of doom, and the most kickass mobility spell this side of fast food, Phoenix is considered to be a powerful support and potent nuker with a medium-high skillcap. His abilities enable him to pull off quite a few clutch plays, able to both save his allies from certain doom while melting faces with a high powered blast of his atomic breath.

When Should I Pick Phoenix?

Phoenix is a major bad *** and usually a very strong pick, but it’s typically a bad idea to pick him first. He’s got a number of counters and needs teammates that synergize with his unique daredevil playstyle.

When Do I Pick Phoenix?

You may pick - Free Game Cheats Phoenix if:

Please do not pick - Free Game Cheats Phoenix if:

  • You’re new to Dota (May I recommend wraith king - Free Game Cheats Wraith King?)
  • Your team is lacking in stuns
  • Your team is lacking a carry (Hah! As if!)
  • Your ping is high (- Free Game Cheats Phoenix is a low-ping hero)
  • The enemy team has plenty of silences
  • The enemy team has Necrolyte (Your worst nightmare that isn’t silencer - Free Game Cheats Silencer. Avoid at all costs!)

Skills

Ok guys, so I’m going to be assuming you’re the dota 2 player who’s never had the misfortune of being razed by Phoenix’s incredibly potent abilities. Now lemme write them down for ya real quick.

phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive

-Phoenix swoops forward in an arc in the direction you target, before returning to his original position. The distance is a fixed 1,400 units, and any enemy he collides with on the way is slowed and dealt damage over time.

Important things to know!

– He can stop at any time during the dive, allowing Phoenix to make some sweet escapes as well as some daring dives and clutch plays (with the right items). If not stopped, he will return to his original position.

– You WILL stop if you are stunned while diving.

– Total travel time (time spent flying) is 2 seconds, but enemies burn for 4. They are also slowed by 25%.

– Mana cost is free! But he uses up 15% of his current hp to dive

– Did I mention he can totally use his spells mid-flight? That’s kind of important, since it allows him to pull off top 10 plays. Diving into the midst of a teamfight and unloading his fire spirits is cool as hell.

– Not just spells. he can autoattack, AND use both single target and nontargeted items as well! Use this to your advantage and equip Phoenix with powerful item actives that can synergize with his Dive!

speaking of his Fire Spirits….

phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits

-Phoenix again uses up 20% of his current hp and turns it into 4 fire spirits that circle around him ready to raise the roof with fire. Once activated, Phoenix may then use this skill a second time to select 1 spirit to shoot at a targeted area. On impact, they explode and burn enemies in the area of effect. They also reduce the attack speed of any burning enemies!

Important things to know!

– The Spirits last for 16 seconds, while the burning duration on impact is 4 seconds long.

– Hitting someone with another spirit refreshes the burning duration

– The attack speed reduction is MASSIVE at -140 IAS at the maximum level (Greater than Untouchable!). This allows Phoenix to cripple autoattack reliant heroes with one blast. He may also use this early game to solo kill carries foolish enough to attack him head on.

– Combining this with Shiva’s guard allows you to deal a whopping -180 attack speed in an AOE.

– When fully upgraded, each spirit blast deals 280 damage over 4 seconds. Nail an enemy thrice with great timing for an unfair 840 magic damage by level 7.

– Has a HUGE casting range of 1,200. Combine this with Icarus Dive’s 1,400 range to attack someone from 2,600 units away. Great for nailing that last crucial hit!

– Spirits move at 900 speed towards the targeted area, so do adjust your aim accordingly!

Speaking of aiming, let’s take a look at his most infamous skill, which requires precision and a lot of self control to not abuse.

phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

– There’s a reason this skill has been constantly hit withNOTHINGbut nerfs. Phoenix fires a 1,300 range laser beam from his mouth Godzilla-style and deals pure damage per second. The damage has a small base (that increases slightly as it levels up) as well as bonus damage based on a percentage of the enemy’s MAXIMUM HP. Costs 6% of his current HP per second to fire!

Important things to know!

– The Sun Ray lasts for 6 seconds, so that’s a whopping amount of HP you’re trading off. Do exercise self control!

– The amount of damage it can deal to a single target is IMMENSE(270 + 36% of their maximum hp at the highest level)

– Phoenix may be turned left and right while firing his Sun Ray to catch any slippery devils attempting to flee

– Pressing Sun Ray’s second ability while firing causes him to gain flying movement and pushes him forward at a fixed 250 movement speed. Use it to fly over cliffs when pinned down without Icarus Dive!

– Sun Ray HEALS allies when it strikes them (for half the damage it would deal!) giving Phoenix a heal that SCALES and has some awfully long range.

– Phoenix is free to cast his other spells as well as use any nontargeted items (Such as Shiva’s or Mek) while firing Sun Ray

– Sun Ray is pure damage, so it is excellent at melting down tanky targets protected by pipes and armor. It is also amazing at healing up your OWN tanky-*** ally when a mek just won’t cut it anymore.

– Remember to turn off the phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray when not hitting anything. You have to save on HP.

All that’s left now is his ultimate.

phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova

-Phoenix turns into a magic immune, burning ball of badass that requires a set amount of enemy attacks to destroy. Any enemies within a large 1000 AOE take damage per second while the ball lives. Should they fail to kill Phoenix in 6 seconds, the supernova shatters, stunning all enemies within burning range and reviving Phoenix with full mana and HP.

Important things to know!

– This skill, when used right, allows you to cheat death. About to be get hit withsniper assassinate - Free Game Cheats Assassinate? Supernova. Low HP and they’re gonna tower dive you? Supernova. Extremely important teamfight going on and you need to be the biggest, juiciest distraction ever? Super-frigging-nova.

– Auras still work inside the Supernova, so if you have a shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard, you will still slow down their attack speed. If you have a radiance (God knows why you would), they’ll get the radiance burn alongside the Supernova burn.

– Apart from the ulti, all your spell cooldowns will be refreshed upon resurrection. Use this to Icarus Dive away to safety (since any enemies nearby will be stunned upon resurrection)

– It’s not damage that destroys the sun, it’s the number of attacks. Do beware of heroes who can increase their attack speed such as ursa - Free Game Cheats Ursa, Windrunner, and worst of all… troll warlord - Free Game Cheats Troll Warlord.

– Upon entering Supernova mode, any Fire spirits you still have will explode in the area around your Supernova.

Items

About to Leave the Fountain

observer ward - Free Game Cheats

  • These are pretty damn important being the babysitter. Ward the rune and the jungle!
  • If you’re feeling cheeky, ward the enemy’s mid lane so your mid always has high ground vision. You might want to skill phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive first though instead of phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray if you’re planning on doing this risky move.

animal courier - Free Game Cheats

  • When playing aggressive, these babies will ferry you the extra regen you so desperately need!
  • Always remember that flying courier - Free Game Cheats Flying Courier‘s give flying vision. You may use them to deward the cliffs near the rune spots if you don’t have any wards there!

ring of protection - Free Game Cheats

  • You have 0 BASE ARMOR. This alleviates the problem somewhat!
  • It’s also one of the components for tranquil boots - Free Game Cheats Tranquil Boots which is core on - Free Game Cheats Phoenix

tango - Free Game Cheatsandhealing salve - Free Game Cheats

  • You expend a lot of HP to use your powerful abilities. These are important!
  • When planning on trading hits with an enemy hero, activate phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, use a tango - Free Game Cheats Tango, and fire one spirit at the enemy hero and autoattack until it’s time to throw another spirit. Very few offlaners will attempt to trade with that. If they attempt to run, don’t forget to blow them a goodbye kiss with a phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

Early Game

magic wand - Free Game Cheats

  • Standard on just about everybody, the burst regen can save your life and give you the edge in a fight.
  • If you’re doing your job right, you’re being a huge pain in the *** and the enemy will begin to get frustrated. As they attempt to throw spells in your direction, remember to dodge (If you can. - Free Game Cheats Phoenix is pretty slow) and soak up some sweet charges!

tranquil boots - Free Game Cheats

  • No other boots fit Phoenix so well. You lack in armor and movespeed, as well as desperately need HP regen. Get this and get it as fast as you can.
  • They’re also extremely cheap to build, allowing Phoenix to finish his boots without needing much farm.

headdress - Free Game Cheats

  • Not only does it give you HP regen, it gives your carry too!
  • It’s also one of the components for mekansm - Free Game Cheats Mekansm which is fantastic for a support like - Free Game Cheats Phoenix

Core

mekansm - Free Game Cheats

  • Gives you health regen, a burst heal, and armor. What’s not to love?
  • - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive gives him a way to quickly approach an endangered ally and save him with a mek.

urn of shadows - Free Game Cheats

  • A little mana regen to solve your problems never hurt. Gives you some HP as well!
  • Phoenix is an aggressive hero, he should be involved in a lot of ganks. This is where an urn of shadows - Free Game Cheats Urn of Shadows comes in very handy. Use it to heal up after a fight, or as a 150 damage nuke to an enemy when you need that extra tick!

Situational

drum of endurance - Free Game Cheats

  • A little bit of everything! Gives you some movespeed (you’re pretty slow), health, and a larger manapool.
  • Activate during teamfights to give your allies that little boost of attack and movement speed.

force staff - Free Game Cheats

  • Though the regen it gives is pretty insignificant, Force staff provides plenty of utility with its amazing active.
  • Combine Force Staff’s push with phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to quickly cover an enormous 2200 range

pipe of insight - Free Game Cheats

  • The 11 HP / sec regen is highly useful to you, but you really want this for its barrier.
  • Again, activate this in the middle of teamfights to protect your allies. Since you’ll be forcing the enemy to drop their nukes and switch to autoattacking, this is the perfect time to bombard them with Fire Spirits!

rod of atos - Free Game Cheats

  • The extra HP is nice, and the great increase to your manapool is even better, but you really want this for it’s ridiculously long ranged (1,200 units) slow.
  • The enemy is slowed for 4 seconds, allowing a LOT of time for - Free Game Cheats Phoenix to melt their face with a good phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

heavens halberd - Free Game Cheats

  • I almost put this in core. Grants you plenty of strength and an unreliable slow. Defensively, The 25% evasion makes for a very happy Phoenix.
  • It’s active will disarm ranged opponents for 4 seconds, and melee opponents for 3. useful at any phase of the game, but ESPECIALLY if you’re about to go Supernova.

heart of tarrasque - Free Game Cheats

  • Extremely expensive, but one of these gives you all the HP regen you will ever need to raze everything.
  • Please do not prioritize this item above the others. It provides no utility in any way.

shivas guard - Free Game Cheats

  • Permanently solves any mana problems you might be having. The massive armor gain is beneficial too! But what you really want this for, is it’s ridiculous -40 attack speed aura. Let’s see them attempt to use autoattacks with this AND Fire Spirits on them!
  • Don’t forget it’s active! You may use phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to hit everything and the kitchen sink with the freezing blast! Not only will you slow everyone down and lay a 200 damage nuke for practically free, you’re in the perfect position to use your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray, and even phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova to wreak some serious havoc.

euls scepter of divinity - Free Game Cheats

  • Although it doesn’t give you HP regen, it DOES provide you with a large amount of movement speed and is a cheap way to permanently solve all your mana problems.
  • The active can be used by Phoenix to dodge attacks or interrupt an enemy’s channeling spell or item.

veil of discord - Free Game Cheats

  • Though the bonuses it gives aren’t very high, it gives a LOT of bonuses. Think about this like a vladmirs offering - Free Game Cheats Vladmir’s Offering, except more useful for you because you make your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits that much more painful. It also gives HP regen!
  • It’s not just phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits. 3 out of 4 of - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s spells are magic damage. An investment into one of these babies can make you deal a LOT of damage in a fight. If someone else is gonna get it though, don’t stack two on one team.

blade mail - Free Game Cheats

  • Hey kids, who’s an appealing, squishy target who can do massive damage if not quickly taken out? That’s right. - Free Game Cheats Phoenix.
  • If the enemy is dumb and continue to attack you despite the blade mail - Free Game Cheats Blade Mail, wait till you’re low HP and activate Supernova to buy your teammates a ****load of time.

refresher orb - Free Game Cheats

  • Extremely situational, but two phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernovas and 4 each of your powerful spells in an extended teamfight will practically GUARANTEE you victory if you play it right.
  • A word of warning: it does very little to help you survive, costs a lot of mana, and is very difficult to utilize to its full potential. It does however, raise - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s considerable skillcap and makes him a team fighter for the ages.
  • Although not as efficient, it can be used as a panic button should your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova still be on cooldown.

blink dagger - Free Game Cheats

  • So guys, blink dagger - Free Game Cheats Blink Dagger no longer costs mana. That means that not only is it MUCH more useful for - Free Game Cheats Phoenix, you now have a 2nd mobility option!
  • Use this to disjoint any deadly projectiles without wasting your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova! You may also use this to properly position yourself before a huge teamfight!

Dagon

  • Look, up in the sk-KABOOM.
  • Gee, I sure am glad - Free Game Cheats Phoenix doesn’t have any burst and relies on damage over-ZAP
  • Seriously though, for troll builds only

aghanims scepter - Free Game Cheats

  • Is it a huge gamble? yes. but it works EXTREMELY well with heroes who’ve got long cooldowns on their normal skills like undying - Free Game Cheats Undying.
  • Also works extremely well with certain spells. See http://imgur.com/a/amssO for more information (Thanks Reddit!)
  • It’s biggest downside is that it doesn’t upgrade your DPS in any way. Think carefully about what you can do with the Aghs if you want to buy one.

Early Game

Alright. So as stated many times before, Phoenix is a Support and a pretty damn powerful one at that. Start out with the items I’ve listed above and set out to ward the rune spot and the jungle. Don’t forget, the name of the game is HP regeneration; you’re going to be casting a lot of spells and will probably take some harass.

Note that we get phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive at level 1 just in case something dreadful (Like running into 5 enemies)happens, we got a good escape up our sleeves.

Now, as a babysitter, your main priority is carry safety. This means buying Observer Wards to scout out the map, as well as using Sentry Wards to deny your opponents vision. The last thing you want is for your carry to not get farm this early in the game.

Now, as - Free Game Cheats Phoenix, you’re not just a babysitter, you’re a babysitter that kicks some serious ***. Reach level 4 as soon as possible by stacking and pulling creeps, double-pulling (if Radiant) or getting first blood. Once you hit level 4, it is time to raise hell. Use your level 2 phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and level 1 phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to beat the ever loving **** out of the heroes in your lane. XP range was increased in 6.79, so you gotta force them back a LOOONNGG way. Your skills all have ginormous amounts of range, this shouldn’t be too hard. just don’t, you know, miss. the cooldown of all your skills are ridiculously long and thus not spammable. Careful aim and efficient use of your abilities is needed.

But what if I’m Not The Babysitter?

You’re NOT the Babysitter? Who the hell replaced you? venomancer - Free Game Cheats Venomancer? No matter. Phoenix kicks some serious *** roaming between lanes. All you need is a good partner with a stun or a slow, and Phoenix’s great damage and range will make those kills happen.

Since using phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to initiate leaves you vulnerable and unable to escape, ask your partner to initiate for you. Immediately use a tango - Free Game Cheats Tango (You’ll be needing the regen) and phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray the **** out of your target (AVOID CREEPS). Activate phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray‘s subability that gives you flying movement, and summon your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits as well and blast your poor victim. Should you be fighting more than one target, focus your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray on the more valuable enemy, but try to catch as many heroes as you can with your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits blasts (it’s AOE isn’t too bad). Should you find yourself on very low health (you probably will), use phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to escape any reaction TP’s from your enemies. If however, they’re getting away with super low hp and you’re feeling ballsy, use Icarus Dive’s full swing to nail that last Fire Spirit while returning to safety. It doesn’t always work but when it does, it feels freaking AWESOME.

IMPORTANT: phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray ends upon a silence or a stun. it’s range is long enough to sit outside the reach of most stuns and silences, but if you can have your mate bait them out for you, all the better.

Top

Mid Game

It is at this phase of the game that you should be finishing up with upgrading your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to it’s full potential. By now, you should also have your ultimate, phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova. What happens next you might ask? Well, now we fight some more.

Your goal remains the same: Get your carry fatter than theirs, and be the biggest annoying moving target you can be. At this phase of the game, the ultimates will start flying, and skirmishes will involve more and more heroes. Phoenix is almost always not in the peak of health throughout this phase, as he will be very active and also be a prime target for attack. Don’t be scared: Phoenix is a manly hero for manly men (and women), and manly people do not fear death (just feeding). If dying involves rescuing your carry, or buying your team that precious few seconds to set up a counterattack (phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova is great at doing this), then it was worth it.

As much as possible, try to not go alone. Although self sufficient, he lacks stuns, and his usefulness in combat really shines through when he has a partner to complement his skills.

Special Section: How to Ulti in Teamfights Effectively

I see this all the damn time: “Stupid KFC ulti sucks makes you sitting duck not worth it + ****ty damage lol”. Shut up, you’re missing the point.

See phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova isn’t supposed to be an OMGWTFBBQ ulti (although it can) that makes clutch plays and wins 3 v 1’s. It is an enormous, glowing, juicy distraction with a huge AOE that makes it tough to ignore. It is to be used after Phoenix has exhausted all of his offensive combat options (or he’s about to die) and all he has left is maybe an Icarus Dive and 200 mana for an ult.

Upon such a dire situation, a good phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova will be much more useful than simply standing around autoattacking and pitifully squawking in your terrible attempt to look threatening. Find a spot (use Icarus Dive if pressed for time) where your enemies won’t instantly be able to attack your nova form (Such as high ground, or from behind them to sandwich them between you and your team, behind some trees where they can’t see you, etc)and let ‘er rip. It’s a big gamble yes, but one that you should be willing to take when necessary. If they kill you, well, at least hope your teammates used that precious few seconds to escape or do something useful. If you resurrect, you have full health, full mana, refreshed cooldowns, AND you just applied a 1.5-2.5 second stun to everyone within burning range. NOW who’s the sitting duck?

You may now use phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to escape, or take advantage of your full HP and mana to rally your team and crush whatever is left.

Special Section: phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits vs phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

I’ve seen this argument crop up several times. Which should we max first? phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray or phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits?

Mathematically speaking, it’s far more efficient to level up phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits first given that it’s damage scales by flat numbers and will generally be far more effective early game due to it’s ability to allow - Free Game Cheats Phoenix regular movement as well as giving him a long ranged projectile with a ton of damage and – attack speed. Which is excellent on forcing enemies out of a lane or defending yourself when jumped on by enemies who rely on autoattacks (such as slardar - Free Game Cheats Slardar, lifestealer - Free Game Cheats Lifestealer, or clinkz - Free Game Cheats Clinkz).

However, an early phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray provides an excellent heal as well as a much easier to aim attack and extraordinary amounts of AOE damage at the cost of mobility and quite a lot of HP. It’s much more offensive in nature than phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, and should be considered if one has slow moving, chunky targets, an allied carry who actually knwos that phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray heals, and the player has difficulty aiming the spirits.

Beware though! The HP loss from phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray is pretty high early on. Only use it when it reaches level 3 or higher, and eat a tango - Free Game Cheats Tango first before using in lane. Until then, play passively.

And remember that - Free Game Cheats Phoenix is quite the vulnerable target when applying phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray. Try to bait out the enemy’s spells first before attacking. For example,

DON’T

DO

As always in Dota, adapt to the situation!

Top

Late Game

From here on out, Phoenix fades into the background as BKB’s are popped and carries grow in power. Your job hasn’t changed in the slightest. be an annoying bird (slow down the enemy carry’s attack speed with your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits!, cheat death, laser people you don’t like, and combine your items and abilities to wreak as much havoc as you can! If you’ve done your job right, your carry should be fat as hell and ready for battle. If things went bad and you’re behind, don’t forget that there’s always a next time.

Oh and remember: no matter how much HP that enemy carry is packing, if his BKB is down, a good phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray should cut him/her down to size.

Special Chapter: Machine Gun Combo

So despite talking about how phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive is a ridiculously overpowered skill when combined with - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s other abilities and items, I still see 80% of players completely fail to use it at anything other than chickening out, which is really bad considering it’s possibly one of the best combo making skills in the game. What am I talking about you ask? Well, let me introduce you to a commonly known (although often unused) - Free Game Cheats Phoenix combo I like to call The Machine Gun Combo.

We all know a morphling - Free Game Cheats Morphling can shotgun a poor chap to death with an Etheral Blade and an adaptive strike, but - Free Game Cheats Phoenix can actually deal a similar combo- He can combine his skills in a teamfight to provide a DPS storm that tears away at multiple enemy’s HP bars until thye’re awfully wounded, or 6 feet under. It’s brutal, effective, and scales VERY well with a few good items thrown into the mix. So without further ado, I give you the Machine Gun Combo Chapter! *Toot*

The Basic Combo

The Machine Gun Combo at its most basic form is really just activating phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, and then diving the enemy and pelting them with the spirits and phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova-ing in their faces. It’s relatively cheap (only 300 mana!), brutally effective, and doesn’t require any items!

Important things to remember!

  • …They can totally still kill your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova, so do bring backup to finish the job!
  • You might want to get another skill point in phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive at level 4 over phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray since it scales VERY well from level 1 to 2 (10 damage per second to 30 holy ****!)
  • If your sun survives and you resurrect, don’t forget your cooldowns have been refreshed! Chase them down again with phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive and phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and use your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to add even more DPS!
  • This is the Machine Gun Combo at it’s simplest. It might get a bit harder from here so do remember to practice!

Some Sweet Augmentations

phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive allows you to use items freely while flying. This means that your basic combo could be improved with virtually any active item in the game, but i’m going to round up some of the best ones you can use to tear your enemies a brand new butt.

veil of discord - Free Game Cheats Veil of Discord

  • You add this to your combo after activating phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive, but BEFORE you touch them while diving and pelt them with spirits. This is to maximize the surprise factor, since enemies are likely to back off if they find their magic resistance being lowered early.
  • Easily one of the best items to upgrade the basic combo’s DPS. It’s cheap, easy to build, the AOE is huge as hell, and it lasts for so long you can resurrect and dive them again and the debuff will STILL be on them. Perfect.

shivas guard - Free Game CheatsShiva’s Guard

  • You add this to your combo after you activate phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, but BEFORE you use phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive. This is so the AOE would have expanded to a decent size while you’re diving and increases the odds of hitting multiple enemies.
  • Not only does it add an extra 200 magic damage to your combo, but it aids in your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova form by slowing their attack speed, as well as the Artic blast slow combining with the slow from phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive taking out quite a bit of movespeed. No running from the murder bird boys!

scythe of vyse - Free Game CheatsScythe of Vyse

  • Very situational, but extremely useful if there’s an enemy with an excellent way of catching a fast flying - Free Game Cheats Phoenix like tidehunter - Free Game Cheats Tidehunter or jakiro - Free Game Cheats Jakiro. Apply the hex right before you begin pelting them with spirits (around the same time as applying the veil of discord - Free Game Cheats Veil of Discord. Once you’re in phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova form, their AOE skills will be no help in taking you down.
  • Extremely expensive to build, and a Eul’s Scepter can do the same job (although you won’t be dealing damage to a tornado’d unit), so be sure to think hard about whether it’s worth it.

Dagon Dagon

  • Applied to the highest HP enemy (or highest priority kill) right before phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova.
  • Oh you. Really? Did you really have to buy this?
  • I’m just finding excuses to keep Dagon in this guide.

blink dagger - Free Game CheatsBlink Dagger

  • Can be used at any time during the combo (except for when in Nova form) for better positioning.
  • Can also be used to escape upon resurrection, or abort mission midway through a combo
  • Also just an all around godly item.

radiance - Free Game CheatsRadiance

  • Oh you sly cur. Yes this is actually the most passive way to upgrade the basic Combo’s damage- just throw a radiance - Free Game Cheats Radiance on top of it. It gives a mighty fine 300 damage upgrade to phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova‘s burn alone, and is excellent for chases after your resurrection.
  • The buildup is really, really bad, so only get this if you’re extremely far ahead and/or feeling too lazy to add yet another active to your combo.

refresher orb - Free Game CheatsRefresher Orb

  • You activate the orb AFTER a successful phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova, and then only after you’ve already spent the refreshed phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive and phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits the phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova gave you. You’ll also be full mana upon a successful resurrection, so you should always have enough to activate the orb.
  • The exact opposite mentality behind radiance - Free Game Cheats Radiance, buying this means you want a helluva LOT of buttons to press, and are quite ready to bet your life on a succesful phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova twice.
  • DO NOT ATTEMPT ON BUYING THIS WITHOUT shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard. Adding this makes your now-stupidly-long combo VERY mana intensive, and you’ll need the int the Shiva’s gives you to even attempt the orb.

The Fully Upgraded Machine Gun

Alright, so it’s now late game and you’ve gotten around three items to augment your combo. What’s it gonna look like? Here’s an example I drew up from playing again with - Free Game Cheats Phoenix this morning. I had a veil of discord - Free Game Cheats Veil of Discord, shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard, and a refresher orb - Free Game Cheats Refresher Orb to top it off. Here is what it looked like, Step by step.

Step 1 – Activate phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard
Step 2 – Begin Icarus Dive, making sure enemy heroes are within the path of the dive
Step 3 – Apply Veil of Discord before you make contact whilst flying
Step 4 – Rapidly unload 4 Fire Spirits, spread them out to catch as many enemies as you can
Step 5 – Cast phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova, rely on my allies to keep me alive.
Step 6 – I’m alive, Activate Fire Spirits.
Step 7 – Icarus Dive again
Step 8 – Pelt enemies with more spirits
Step 9 – Activate Refresher Orb
Step 10 – Go back to Step 1. They really should be dead by now though.

Bonus Step: If Orb is not needed, use phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to pick off stragglers or lay down heavy damage to especially tanky or magic resistant enemies!

I hope this chapter has been useful for you (Although I really think this stuff should be obvious)!

Special Chapter: Mid Phoenix

This chapter is currently undergoing construction

Let’s get this out of the way, I am one of the few - Free Game Cheats Phoenix players on earth who prefer to play him as a support rather than as a mid. Nevertheless, with his unparalleled range, attack speed slow, phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive and amazing damage, - Free Game Cheats Phoenix can flat out destroy midlane if given even half a chance. However, his HP will always be constantly low from having to wage war against another mid hero (who are usually powerful, ranged nukers themselves), so extra caution and some special tactics will be needed.

In this special chapter, I will be once again displaying each of - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s skills, and showing how you can use them to win mid. I will assume you already know what each skill does, this is only some tips on how to utilize their effects to win mid.

General

  • - Free Game Cheats Phoenix has a 500 range attack, ****ty base HP but with a high natural str gain, and is extremely slow moving.
  • Generally, these are qualities you do not want on a mid hero. he more than makes up for it however, with his outstanding abilities.

phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive

  • If you’re fast with your mouse, you can snatch runes mid-flight with this spell. This allows you to fly to the rune from a pretty fair distance, grab it, and cruise back to your original spot all in 2 seconds. It’s pretty hard to beat a good - Free Game Cheats Phoenix to the rune. This is however, VERY difficult to do without practice. Remember that - Free Game Cheats Phoenix flies in an arc, so try not to point the dive right on top of the rune spot. Adjust your aim so his flight path goes through it.
  • Remember that your abilities, autoattack, and items all work while flying, AND you can stop it mid-flight.
  • Forgetful mid enemies will put down stat items before drinking their bottle to maximize it’s effects. You can swoop in from a pretty far distance and destroy them with autoattacks while returning back to your position quite safely. You can also do this to snipe the enemy’s flying courier - Free Game Cheats Flying Courier.
  • A smoke gank coming your way? Your escape route pinned off? No worries. Run down the river then phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive up the cliff when they enter the river to chase you. Easy escape.

phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits

  • At level 1, that’s a -80 attack speed for 4 seconds if it lands. You should time your skill activation for when your enemy is about to go for a last hit. Smack them with a spirit and deny like a boss.
  • These spirits are pretty easy for the enemy midlaner to dodge. Sometimes leading your shots isn’t enough, and this is where mind games come in handy. Whip them out and open fire on areas he would need to be in in order to last hit. if you DO hit him, he gets damaged, and you could probably deny him. If he doesn’t get hit, he is still without a last hit since you made him waste time playing dodgeball.
  • Should you be able to perfectly chain these shots together (Fire, wait 3 seconds, fire again) you will be dealing colossal amounts of damage to the enemy midlaner. Use phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits‘ superior range and shove them out of the xp range!
  • These are great for cancelling bottle charges, salves, and clarities. If you see that the enemy is about to use a consumable, bombs away.
  • The spirits are much easier to hit the closer you are. Should your opponent be low on health, consider combining phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive with phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits to perform an aerial bombing combo and make him feel like London under WW2.

phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

  • Won’t be seeing too much use in the middle lane (it’s risky as hell) but DOES have an enormous range, which can be used to nail the last few hits on a fleeing enemy.
  • The range is large enough that the phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray can shoot through the river and hit someone on the other side. If you can use phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to push the enemy away, I would approve of the huge risk you’re taking.

phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova

  • Ahh phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova. Once you have this baby, their tower is no longer a safe zone.
  • Although you may be tempted to give them both barrels (of flaming action), always reserve 200 mana for emergency ults. You never know when that pudge - Free Game Cheats Pudge will score a lucky hook.
  • Remember, unless they’ve got some major way to boost attack speed, if they’re alone (and just ate a Fire Spirit), there is practically nothing they can do against your nova form. if you must dive them under their tower to shove them out of the lane or outright kill them, phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova is there to cover your sorry, armor-less *** from death by tower poo-poo.
  • phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova makes for an excellent panic button vs other mids. For example, a storm spirit - Free Game Cheats Storm Spirit on their side just hit 6. he zips up to you, and is about to perform his deadly combo. What do you do? Well. If you’re confident you can survive the combo, wait for him to carry it out, then ult in his face. If you don’t think you can, ult immediately and give him the finger.
  • Remember that being mid is not all about the midlane! You have every possible tool you need now to gank the sidelanes, make aggressive dives, and survive. Go forth and gank my dear fiery chickens! Create space, shut down carries, raze supports, melt faces, and most importantly, look awesome doing it!

Special Chapter: Offlane Phoenix

This chapter is currently undergoing construction

Author’s note – I recently asked a friend for some extra input regarding offlane - Free Game Cheats Phoenix, and have added it to this chapter. He’s also written everything in (in my opinion at least) rather crudish capslock humor, but who am I to jude what you guys might like to read? His section is right after mine.

Squishy, slow, no armor, and an escape with a ridiculously long cooldown. Why would anyone ever think of putting - Free Game Cheats Phoenix in the offlane?

Answer: his ridiculously long range on his spells. With the recent changes to the offlane, not only is it easier for - Free Game Cheats Phoenix to survive, he could actually thrive, getting oozles of experience and gold where most heroes would balk. Just remember to exercise great amounts of caution!

General

  • Remember that experience range is approximately the length of your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray. Stay in xp range as much as you can to get a level advantage.
  • DO NOT spam your spells. You need your HP in the offlane. Only cast when you think you can get away with it safely.

phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive

  • You get one shot at using this spell due to it’s ridiculous 36 second cooldown. Unless you can earn yourself a double kill, use this spell defensively!
  • If you’re feeling fast, you can actually use this to shop from the side shop while it’s being blocked by enemies (make sure not to stop at the shop lest you get ganked). Usually you might want to do this when you need to buy a TP and you need it NOW.
  • Don’t use it immediately when multiple enemies attack you. You want to use it to dodge certain death, such as a disruptor - Free Game Cheats Disruptor using disruptor glimpse - Free Game Cheats Glimpse and disruptor kinetic field - Free Game Cheats Kinetic Field to trap you. If possible, run to covered areas such as the side shop where you can use your phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive under the cover of fog of war.
  • Your biggest threats are heroes with stuns and silences that aren’t ground targeted such as vengeful spirit magic missile - Free Game Cheats Magic Missile and silencer last word - Free Game Cheats Last Word.

phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits

  • At level 1, that’s a -80 attack speed for 4 seconds if it lands. You should time your skill activation for when your enemy is about to go for a last hit. Smack them with a spirit and deny like a boss.
  • Abuse the fact that these babies have ridiculous range and fire them off into the pull camp during a pull. Those creeps, both lane and neutral, belong to YOU damnit!
  • Take advantage of the fact that most lane supports absolutely cannot afford to be hit by this spell. If you can nail a few of them, they’ll need to pop their salves. Or better, go back to the fountain.
  • If you are in the radiant offlane, there should be a medium camp to your right which you can easily pull to your own lane creeps. Fire a Fire Spirit into it and they’ll sure as hell come out angry and looking for something to punch. Lead them into your lane creeps. WARNING: This is easily challenged by the lane supports, but that’s what the other 3 fire spirits are for!
  • Don’t be afraid of using Fire Spirits to secure some last hits from a safe distance. You’ll be needing that gold to be well prepared when your mid hopefully comes up there hungry for a kill.

phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray

  • As much as possible, you will not be using this.
  • It DOES have one use however. Poke turtling enemies out of their tower with your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray during a (hopefully multi-man) dive. You may also use the ray to heal up allies fighting under the tower. - Free Game Cheats Phoenix ****py base armor means no diving for him. Unless….

phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova

  • Never fear another tower dive and their annoying tower poo-poo once this baby is online!
  • Although you may be tempted to give them both barrels (of flaming action), always reserve 200 mana for emergency ults. You never know when that pudge - Free Game Cheats Pudge will score a lucky hook.
  • Speaking of tower dives, this is the perfect tower diving deterrent for - Free Game Cheats Phoenix. Should your enemies wish to dive you, quickly apply phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits on all of them and phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova next to the tower. If they still are going for you, you’re either vastly outnumbered, or they’re really really brave. or stupid. Sometimes it’s one or the other, or all damn three.

Captain Capslock Section

ALRIGHT LADIES SO THE AUTHOR THINKS PHOENIX IS GOOD IN THE OFFLANE? WRONG. HE ****ING OWNS THE OFFLANE, NAMELY BECAUSE phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits LETS HIM MANFIGHT ANYONE LIKE A ******* BOSS.

JUST WHACK AWAY WITH LEVEL 2 phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits AND A LEVEL 1 phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive. WHY DENY THEM CREEPS WHEN YOU CAN DENY THEM THEIR LIVES? NOW HERE’S SOME TIPS THE AUTHOR PROLLY DIDN’T TELL YOU ABOUT

GENERAL

  • DON’T ***** OUT UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. YOU’VE GOT ONE OF THE LONGEST RANGED JUMPS IN THE GAME, USE IT LATER.
  • THEY’RE LIKELY GOING TO 2V1 OR EVEN 3V1 YOU BECAUSE YOU’RE THAT ******* HOT. FORTUNATELY IT MEANS THEY’LL LOSE OUT ON THE XP RACE AND STILL HAVE PITIFUL LEVEL 1 NUKES AND YOU’LL BE READY TO KILL. JUST DON’T DIE BEFORE THAT AND THIS LANE SHOULD BE EZ PZ FOR RTZ
  • REMEMBER YOU GOT 4 SPIRITS SO YOU CAN BOTH MANFIGHT THEIR SUPPORTS AND **** UP THEIR CARRY BIG TIME. ONCE THEY’RE BOTH LOW USE YOUR DIVE ON THEM BOTH FOR A SWEET *** DOUBLE KILL
  • DON’T GET phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray AT LEVEL 4, THE AUTHOR IS ******ED. GET ANOTHER LEVEL IN phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive BECAUSE THAT **** SCALES IN DAMAGE BY LIKE, 3 TIMES HOLY BALLS. IT DOESN’T SCALE VERY WELL AFTERWARDS SO FEEL FREE TO PICK UP LASER AFTER YO SPIRITS ARE MAXED. REMEMBER TO USE IT TO CHASE FLEEING ENEMIES. IT JUST MIGHT DEAL ENOUGH DAMAGE TO SECURE THE KILL
  • SPEAKING OF THE DIVE, DON’T FORGET YOU CAN BOTH FIRE OFF 2 SPIRITS AND LIKE, 2 AUTOATTACKS WHILE FLYING. ESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR SNIPING COURIERS OR KILLING A ***** HIDING UNDER HIS TOWER.
  • WHOEVER SAID IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO IS A DIRTY LITTLE LIAR. IT TAKES A TREE DAMNIT. AND YOU BETTER EAT ONE BEFORE YOU THINK ABOUT HARASSING.
  • REMEMBER WHEN BUILDING THE MEK, buckler - Free Game Cheats Buckler FIRST *******IT YOU START WITH 0 ARMOR.

Radiant Offlane

  • LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT THE ***** OFFLANE BOY. THE RADIANT OFFLANE IS EZ MODE DUE TO THE ENEMY’S LACK OF A TRIPLE PULL, THEIR DOUBLE PULL EASILY CONTESTABLE, AND THE OFFLANER ABLE TO PULL AS WELL. ITS ALSO GOT THE MOST COMMON pudge - Free Game Cheats Pudge SPOT IN THE WHOLE WORLD, AS WELL AS THE MOST WORTHLESS TOWER LOCATION-WISE COZ THERE’S NO ROSH NEARBY AND ****, SO THEY WON’T BE AS MAD IF YOU **** UP AND IT DIES. YOU BETTER NOT LOSE THIS LANE.
  • WHEN LEECHING XP FROM A PULL, DON’T USE YOUR FIRE SPIRITS AND ATTEMPT TO STEAL LAST HITS UNLESS NECESSARY. THE ENEMY WILL KNOW YOU’RE THERE. GO FULL ON HYHY AND HIDE IN DEM TREES. CONTEST ONLY IF YOU HAVE BACKUP OR THAT SUPPORT’S HP IS SO LOW FLO RIDA’S GONNA SING ABOUT IT.
  • THE CLUMP OF TREES TO THE RIGHT OF THE SHOP IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO MAKE USE OF YOUR JUKING SKILLS. COMBINE THIS WITH YOUR FIRE SPIRITS FOR BASICALLY FREE HARASSMENT. IT ALSO PROVIDES TREES TO EAT BECAUSE OM NOM NOM. BE SURE TO HAVE THE AREA WARDED SO YOU DON’T ACCIDENTALLY RUN INTO A SUPPORT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • THEY COMIN TO GANK YOU NOW? AW HELL NO THEY MUST BE SCARED OF YOU. HEAD TO THE SHOP AND SWOOP OUT ACROSS THE LEDGE BACK TO YOUR SIDE. BONUS POINTS IF THEY FOLLOWED YOU INTO THE SHOP BUT THEN FIND OUT THEY CAN’T FLY. BIRDS RULE.
  • SOMETIMES, THEY’LL WANT YOU SO BAD THEY’LL TRY TO SMOKE UP AND GO THROUGH THE SECRET SHOP ROUTE TO SURROUND YOU. WELL GUESS WHAT? YOUR TOWER IS RIGHT NEXT TO A RIDGE. EZ’IEST ESCAPE ROUTE OF YOUR LIFE AND THEY’LL HAVE WASTED THEIRS EVEN TRYING TO TAKE YOURS.
  • REMEMBER TO FLY OVER IMPASSABLE TERRAIN LIKE THE RIVER LEDGES WHEN *****ING OUT. YOUR MOVEMENT SPEED IS ***, SO YOU GOTTA MAKE ICARUS DIVE COUNT FOR A LOT.

Dire Offlane

  • WELCOME TO THE REAL MAN’S OFFLANE SON. YOU BETTER NOT CRY WHILE THE **** GETS BEATEN OUT OF YOU. THE RADIANT HAVE TRIPLE PULLS, ITS HARDER FOR OFFLANERS TO ESCAPE THEIR JUNGLE WHEN CORNERED, AND THEIR MID HAS THE EZIEST TIME OF HIS LIFE WALKING DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT TO KILL YOU. YOU ALSO HAVE THE MOST UNFORTUNATE CIRCUMSTANCE OF BEING FORCED TO EITHER FLY INTO THE RIVER WHEN ESCAPING, OR RIGHT INTO THE ANCIENT CAMP. ITS ALSO EASY AS HELL FOR THEM TO SMOKE UP AND GO THROUGH THE ANCIENT CAMPS TO GET BEHIND YOU. THE SIDESHOP EMPTIES OUT INTO LAND INSTEAD OF A RIDGE FOR YOU TO FLY OVER, AND LOSING THE TOWER HERE SUCKS BECAUSE IT’S SO DAMN CLOSE TO ROSHAN. INTERRUPTING PULLS HERE IS ALSO WAY HARDER SINCE THE FIRST PULL CAMP IS AWAY FROM THE CLIFF WHILE THE OTHER TWO CAMPS BLOCK YOUR ESCAPE ROUTE SINCE YOU DON’T WANT TO FLY INTO THE ANCIENT CAMP. GAME IS HARD.
  • YOU’VE GOT FEW ADVANTAGES, BUT THE FACT THAT YOU’RE A GIANT FLAMING BIRD MEANS YOU’VE STILL GO THIS. YOU SEE THAT BOTTOM RUNE? MOST OFFLANERS HAVE TO WALK TO THE EXIT RAMP JUST TO NAB IT. YOU DON’T. YOU CAN ******* FLY RIGHT TO IT, MAKING A DIVE TO THE RUNE BOTH A GREAT WAY TO ESCAPE AND ESTABLISH RUNE CONTROL. IT ALSO MAKES BUYING A bottle - Free Game Cheats Bottle FOR DIRE OFFLANE - Free Game Cheats Phoenix AN OKAY IDEA. REGEN RUNES AND DD RUNES ARE GIFTS FROM ICEFROG.
  • THE PLACEMENT OF THE TREES MEANS TO GANK YOU A SUPPORT HAS TO GO ALL THE WAY UP TO THE RIVER RAMP OR ELSE FACE YOU IN FRONT LIKE A REAL MAN. A SMART RUNE WARD THAT EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER KNOWS WILL GIVE YOU PLENTY OF WARNING TIME TO RUN TO THE SHOP AND GTFO.
  • IF YOU’RE GONNA BE A MAN AND BLOCK THE PULL CAMPS WITH A WARD, THERE IS A SPOT THAT BLOCKS TWO CAMPS AT ONCE. GO FIND OUT WHERE IT IS. THE GOLD INVESTMENT IS EFFICIENT AS HELL AND ALLOWS YOU TO CONCENTRATE ON KICKING THEIR CARRY’S ***.
  • REMEMBER, WHEN IN A SUPER TIGHT SPOT WITH DEADLY DAMAGE OVER TIME AND THERE’S NO HOPE LEFT, THE ANCIENT CAMP IS NEARBY FOR YOU TO FLY INTO AND SUICIDE IN. THEY’RE A HELLUVA LOT STRONGER THAN NEUTRAL CREEPS SO ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET THE LAST HIT ON YOUR SORRY ***.

LASTLY, DON’T FORGET TO HAVE FUN. PHOENIX IS ******* FUN. SOME WOULD SAY HE’S SO FUN, HE’S CHEAP. THEY’RE ALL JUST JEALOUS A SQUISHY CASTER MAKES FOR SUCH A FAN-****ING-TASTIC OFFLANER.

  • - Free Game Cheats Phoenix‘s phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive does not cost any mana, allowing him to use it to quickly dispel Curse of the Silent and silencer last word - Free Game Cheats Last Word though be warned, it DOES cost HP (which could potentially kill - Free Game Cheats Phoenix since silencer last word - Free Game Cheats Last Word nukes enemies after they cast a spell.

necrophos - Free Game Cheats Necrophos

troll warlord - Free Game Cheats Troll Warlord

  • A nasty, hateful hero who specializes in attack speed, he will hardly feel the attack speed slow effect of phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and will brutally and quickly destroy your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova.
  • He is to be regarded as extremely dangerous to you, but he IS a squishy guy. Do not hesitate to beat him down if you get the chance.

windranger - Free Game CheatsWindranger

  • A versatile, slippery foe whose windranger powershot - Free Game Cheats Powershot, windranger shackleshot - Free Game Cheats Shackleshot, and windranger focus fire - Free Game Cheats Focus Fire will give you some terrible headaches, consider her a potentially dangerous target.
  • In the laning phase, she has NO answer to your phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits. Apply them liberally and with as much hatred as you can muster; shutting her down early will delay her windranger powershot - Free Game Cheats Powershot and windranger shackleshot - Free Game Cheats Shackleshot and save your allies a lot of grief.

timbersaw - Free Game CheatsTimbersaw

  • A powerful, tanky, and mobile offlaner, you will be encountering MANY of these in your support life adventures.
  • He will have difficulty pinning you down, but he doesn’t want you, he wants your carry. Liberal use of phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits in the laning phase will make his life hell. You may also want to drop a phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray on him should your allies lock him down.

skywrath mage - Free Game CheatsSkywrath Mage

  • You generally hate silencers, but skywrath mage - Free Game Cheats Skywrath Mage gets special mention for his wickedly strong magic damage that will instantly vaporize - Free Game Cheats Phoenix.
  • His range matches yours, but he is far, far squishier. With a good ally, you can easily goosh him like a bug.

sniper - Free Game CheatsSniper

  • His range, fast attack speed, and annoying ministuns will make - Free Game Cheats Phoenix very unhappy.
  • He tends to build Shadow Blade, making him quite the slippery opponent.
  • Fortunately, sniper - Free Game Cheats Sniper hardly has any HP and is almost entirely reliant on autoattacks. Land a Fire Spirit on him, use dust of appearance - Free Game Cheats Dust of Appearance, and squish his little dwarf body.

clinkz - Free Game CheatsClinkz

  • Fast attack speed, extremely slippery, very tough, and will often build an orchid malevolence - Free Game Cheats Orchid Malevolence. Consider him a - Free Game Cheats Phoenix hunter and avoid at all costs.
  • An important thing to note is that he needs to find - Free Game Cheats Phoenix alone in order to kill him. Bring a friend around and always carry Sentry Wards or a gem of true sight - Free Game Cheats Gem of True Sight to avoid him. Don’t forget, phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits‘ attack speed slow screws him over in a teamfight!

Doom Bringer Doom Bringer

  • Run.
  • RRUUUUUUNNNNNN.
  • Should doom doom - Free Game Cheats Doom be down, empty your guns on that fat bastard.

Phoenix’s Prey and Chicken Feed

- Free Game Cheats Phoenix does an excellent job of countering certain heroes and making their life hell. Like most counterpicks however, he only has a certain period of time within the game to shut them down before they will eventually outgrow his ability to overpower them. This section is for showing who - Free Game Cheats Phoenix can bully, how he can bully them, and when he should back off a little.

shadow fiend - Free Game Cheats Shadow Fiend (Mid-Lane battle)

  • Shadow Fiend is extremely reliant on collecting souls for shadow fiend necromastery - Free Game Cheats Necromastery to gain damage. It is extremely important that you slow down his soul gain by taking advantage of his low HP and low base damage. Harass him with phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits constantly in the mid lane!
  • Once he gains Raze, he will be hitting a little harder and pose a bigger threat. Your next job is to continually push him out of the lane with phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits harass, and CONTROL THE RUNES. Your rune control outmatches even the great queen of pain - Free Game Cheats Queen of Pain. Starve him of resources!
  • Once he finishes his BKB, he becomes a much harder target. He will now be hitting hard, can easily crush you in a man fight, and has super golden mode at his beck and call. Force him to use his BKB in bad moments. If he wastes it, your team can easily take him down later.
  • shadow fiend - Free Game Cheats Shadow Fiend needs to snowball badly to maintain control. Slow him down long enough early on, and your team will be rid of a powerful threat.

centaur warchief - Free Game Cheats Centaur Warrunner (Side-lane battle)

  • As at home in the offlane as - Free Game Cheats Phoenix is, his lone druid return - Free Game Cheats Return makes it very hard for ranged supports to zone him out. - Free Game Cheats Phoenix however, couldn’t give a **** about not being able to autoattack. You probably won’t kill him, but phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits will make sure he won’t even dare to take a last hit.
  • Life becomes much more difficult when he obtains his blink dagger - Free Game Cheats Blink Dagger, allowing him to jump on you from a long way out and run you to the ground. My advice? Buy your own. His centaur warchief hoof stomp - Free Game Cheats Hoof Stomp gives you plenty of time to blink away and escape without needing to waste phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive.
  • centaur warchief - Free Game Cheats Centaur Warrunner is usually difficult to kill as he builds hood of defiance - Free Game Cheats Hood of Defiance and has an enormous strength gain. Your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray however, doesn’t care. Not so tanky now, are you, you big, stupid, donkey?
  • Beware. Any Cent worth his hide will buy a Blademail. Be careful not to phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray him while he has it activated, or it would be YOU taking colossal amounts of damage.
  • His ultimate centaur warchief stampede - Free Game Cheats Stampede gives his entire team indigestion and makes diablo come out of their butts (They end up running really, really fast). This makes for a very annoying global team haste rune he and his allies can use in a multitude of ways. Always be wary of this ability!

huskar - Free Game Cheats Oscar. I mean uh, Huskar. (Side-lane battle. Unless mid Huskar)

  • Poor, poor Huskar. The bane of many spellcasters due to his ridiculous magic resistance and obnoxiously fast attack speed when he’s close to dying, phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits‘ enormous attack speed slow and phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray‘s pure damage counter him perfectly. To add to this, phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive gives you an easy escape when he jumps on you (Make sure to fly AFTER he lands on you.), and phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova means that rarely can he rely on the afterburn of huskar burning spear - Free Game Cheats Burning Spear to bring you down.
  • Whenever he Lifebreaks an ally, he just made your job easier by shredding off his health! Apply phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits, then use your phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray to kill him and keep your ally alive!
  • Once he builds BKB, he becomes a major threat. At this point, a heavens halberd - Free Game Cheats Heaven’s Halberd or a shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard would be wonderful. Shiva’s aura is not blocked by magic immunity, and becoming magic immune will NOT remove the disarm from HH should you disarm him before he activates bkb

night stalker - Free Game Cheats Night stalker (Mid-lane battle)

  • Balanar, meet your greatest fear: The son of suns. night stalker - Free Game Cheats Night Stalker relies greatly on getting a good start so he can go on a rampage when the first night beckons. You are going to remind him of why he fears daylight. phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits will both mess up his last hits and force him to consume regen supplies (which he desperately needs for the first night). Use your superior range, rune control, and damage to make his first day a living, burning hell, leaving him a traumatized husk when the War Moon beckons.
  • If the Balanar is smart, he would have taken a level of night stalker crippling fear - Free Game Cheats Crippling Fear to use during the night, most likely to kill you. Fear not, both night stalker void - Free Game Cheats Void and night stalker crippling fear - Free Game Cheats Crippling Fear have only decent range, 525 and 500 respectively. If your team has wards up and you can see he comes to kill you, flee to the trees near your tower and hide. You will get your chance to kill him later.
  • A Eul’s Scepter is a good choice here, as the tornado active on yourself will buy you some time and purges off night stalker crippling fear - Free Game Cheats Crippling Fear‘s silence, allowing you to fight or flee. You can also just woosh up the Balanar and make fun of him, but using it on yourself is more recommended.
  • Remember that if you keep him pushed down, he will not be a big threat when nighttime comes. make sure he never farms up that BKB, aghanims scepter - Free Game Cheats Aghanim’s Scepter, AC, or Basher, or you will know why people are afraid of the dark.

pudge - Free Game CheatsLard-*** (Mid-lane battle)

  • Don’t get hooked.
  • Seriously, don’t get hooked.
  • *******IT STOP GETTING HOOKED.
  • Oh look, you got hooked.

spirit breaker - Free Game CheatsSpirit Breaker (side-lane battle)

  • Space cow is just full of fun isn’t he? No. no he’s not. He’s an annoying mammal that ought to get roasted and turned into beef steak. He’s tough, but he’s melee, needs some farm, and relies on attack speed. you know what to do.
  • That mask of madness - Free Game Cheats Mask of Madness he’s wearing will lead him to his doom. Make sure you aren’t alone (he thrives in 1 v 1 bashups), and if you see him activate MoM, lay the smackdown upon him. That +100 atk speed is nothing to your -140, and the increased damage he takes means your spells are going to hurt. A lot.
  • If he manages to farm a BKB, life gets a bit hard. Once again, shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard and heavens halberd - Free Game Cheats Heaven’s Halberd are recommended, while Eul’s Scepter is great for wooshing him up in the air before his spirit breaker charge of darkness - Free Game Cheats Charge of Darkness hits and flying away to safety.
  • A ghost scepter - Free Game Cheats Ghost Scepter is also a fine choice against him. You can’t punch a ghost! You can however, cast magic while being a ghost, and here is where the scepter on you and the MoM on him can give you a combat advantage.

tiny - Free Game Cheats Tiny (Side-lane, rarely mid-lane battle)

  • I really don’t have to explain to you why you will love this matchup do I?
  • A cool trick to dodge an tiny avalanche - Free Game Cheats Avalanche when you two are facing each other is to phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive past him instead of diving away from him. Diving away from him will force - Free Game Cheats Phoenix to turn and be chased by the avalanche, increasing the odds that the avalanche will catch and stun him. Diving past tiny - Free Game Cheats Tiny on the other hand, will be much faster, and you will often fly past Tiny before the stun effect begins. You may now spit phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits at him while zooming around, cast phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova and taunt his poor attack speed, maybe attack his courier if it happens to be sitting behind him.
  • Do end the game fast. A 6 slotted Tiny is one of the scariest sights you will ever see. It wrecks buildings, wrecks people, and wrecks people’s faces. Remember this when deciding on whether to push or just keep on farming for that Dagon you know you want.

Assorted Tips and Tricks

This chapter is currently under construction

Hi there! This chapter is for various itty bitty tips and tricks that are too small to have their own chapter. You may contribute by commenting on my guide!

phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray affects everyone struck by the beam. Try o catch as many allies and enemies as possible! A (situational) blink dagger - Free Game Cheats Blink Dagger could assist with this.

veil of discord - Free Game Cheats Veil of Discord can easily be built from the sidelanes. Get the null talisman - Free Game Cheats Null Talisman first as it’s harder to obtain (since you need to wrestle the courier), and get the helm of iron will - Free Game Cheats Helm of Iron Will from the sideshop. If you manage to build one before the laning phase is over, apply liberally to enemy lane mates.

A Dagon is an extremely funny, (if extremely bad) item to get on - Free Game Cheats Phoenix. You may use one while flying via phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to nail some pretty sweet kills. Trust me, you’ll want to try it out at least once.

Battling a rubick - Free Game Cheats Rubick may be very tricky as your spells are so ridiculously good. Just be sure what he gets isn’t phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive, as Rubick can use his own powerful spells like rubick telekinesis - Free Game Cheats Telekinesis and rubick fade bolt - Free Game Cheats Fade Bolt mid flight. If you can, bait him into getting phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova as his lack of phoenix fire spirits - Free Game Cheats Fire Spirits and shivas guard - Free Game Cheats Shiva’s Guard will mean he lacks self-protection against heroes who could simply beat his sun to death.

Many foolish huskar - Free Game Cheats Huskars believe they are invincible to spells when at super low HP. This makes them dive a lot of casters like - Free Game Cheats Phoenix with glee and impunity. Most of the time, they’d be right too…. if phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray wasn’t pure damage. Should he jump you, phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive out of his immediate attack range and phoenix sun ray - Free Game Cheats Sun Ray his face off. He’ll be very confused at how fast he melts.

Clockwork can be a very dangerous opponent, as his clockwerk battery assault - Free Game Cheats Battery Assault can prevent you from flying away. This is where it’s often advisable to build a force staff - Free Game Cheats Force Staff to zip over his cogs and into safety. He will also be unable to kill your phoenix supernova - Free Game Cheats Supernova alone, especially after his attack speed has been slowed to a crawl.

Remember to use phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive to snatch objectives! Deny towers, steal aegis, deny aegis, steal runes, deny runes, Last hit enemy towers about to be denied, even deny doomed (literally and figuratively) teammates from a position of relative safety. It’s hard as **** to do most of the time, but - Free Game Cheats Phoenix has a swell autoattack and CAN do it. You just need to practice.

Remember, unless an enemy is about to die, ALWAYS FIGHT FROM RANGE. Your range on your spells is ridiculous. Take advantage and fight from the sidelines.

A very dumb, very fun thing to do is combining shadow amulet - Free Game Cheats Shadow Amulet with your phoenix icarus dive - Free Game Cheats Icarus Dive for some truly obnoxious mindgames. cast it on allies form far off, cast it on yourself mid flight, build a shadow blade - Free Game Cheats Shadow Blade and a radiance - Free Game Cheats Radiance because why the hell not?
