Best Support Heroes in 7.32c

Find out all about the latest changes that make these picks the best support heroes in 7.32c.

The latest 7.32c update for Dota 2 has fixed several bugs and tweaked the abilities of a number of heroes. Support heroes play an important role in Dota 2 by helping the team gain visibility over their opponents. You can pick these support heroes to heal your allies in battle and achieve victory in plenty of games in 7.32c. 


Grimstroke uses Stroke of Fate

Grimstroke is an Intelligence hero who can mutilate enemies with his brush and ink strokes. He has a base mana pool of 375 that lets him nuke opponents in the lane from the start of the game. The ranged hero gains 3.8 Intelligence per level, which is considerably high among support heroes in Dota 2. 

Stroke of Fate is a spell that can be used to weaken enemy heroes while they fight waves of creeps in the lane. It deals base damage of 280 that affects all enemy units in a 1400 cast range. Stroke of Fate deals bonus damage of 50 for every unit that is hit by the blot of ink. 

Enemy units hit by Stroke of Fate have their movement speed reduced by 80% for 1.8 seconds, giving you adequate time to strike them with physical attacks while they flee from battle. It has a low cooldown of 5 seconds that allows you to nuke enemy heroes to drain them of their health. Getting an Arcane Boots early in the game can help you use the spell often as Stroke of Fate consumes 130 mana per cast.

You can increase the cast range and damage dealt by Stroke of Fate through the Talent Tree. Grimstroke can also further increase the range of his spells by equipping Aether Lens. The ranged hero can gain 300 mana, 2.5 mana regeneration rate, and increase the cast range of his spells by 225. 

Grimstroke can silence his enemies by using Phantom’s Embrace. He can summon a phantom to latch onto enemies for up to 5 seconds, silencing them and dealing 40 damage per second. It can take up to 3 attacks from enemy heroes to destroy the phantom. If the phantom isn’t destroyed by the end of its duration, it will deal an additional 360 damage. 

The 7.32c patch has increased the travel speed of the phantom towards the target from 750 to 850. The travel speed of the phantom coming back to Grimstroke has also been increased from 750 to 1150. The cooldown of Phantom’s Embrace is also reset if the phantom reaches back to Grimstroke, making it handy while disabling enemies in battle. 

Grimstroke can stun multiple enemies around his allies by using Ink Swell. He can use Ink Swell on his teammates to deal 360 damage to all units in a 375 radius. Ink Swell can stun opponents for up to 3.5 seconds. It has a cooldown of 18 seconds and requires 150 mana. You can upgrade Ink Swell with an Aghanim’s Shard to heal allies for 40% of the damage, turning Grimstroke into a powerful support hero in 7.32c. 

His ulti, Soul Bind, can be used to prevent 2 enemy heroes from moving away from each other. If either one of the heroes bound by Grimstroke’s ulti is hit by a spell, the other hero chained by Soul Bind will also be hit by that spell. These abilities of Grimstroke and the changes made to him in 7.32c make him one of the best support heroes in Dota 2 right now.
