Ancient Apparition – Stop Enemies in Their Tracks

Ancient Apparition casts Ice Vortex to heal his enemies

Ancient Apparition is primarily a support hero in Dota 2. He can cast several magical spells that prevent enemy heroes from moving away from his allies during team fights in the game. The Intelligence hero has a maximum range of 675 on his physical attacks, making it easier to deny creeps and cast spells from a safe distance. 

You can level up Cold Feet for the ranged hero to be able to stun enemy heroes in lanes. Ancient Apparition can deal 90 damage per second (DPS) to an enemy unit within a cast range of 1000. Enemy units targeted by Cold Feet will be stunned for 3.5 seconds if they do not move away from their original position before 4 seconds of being affected by Cold Feet. The ability has a break distance of 715, forcing enemy heroes to run back to their base to prevent being stunned by Ancient Apparition. Cold Feet has a cooldown of 9 seconds and consumes 125 mana to be used per cast. 

People can upgrade Cold Feet through the Talent Tree to make Ancient Apparition a mighty support hero for their team. You can increase the DPS of Cold Feet by 40 at level 10. Players can increase the break distance of Cold Feet by 300 at level 15. Ancient Apparition can cast Cold Feet on multiple enemy heroes in a radius of 450 at level 25. These upgrades can turn the support hero into a feared adversary in Dota 2 matches.  

A good way to ensure that enemy heroes are stunned after using Cold Feet is by casting a few instances of Ice Vortex around your opponents. You can cast an Ice Vortex to limit the movement of enemy heroes in a radius of 300. An Ice Vortex can last for 14 seconds and deals 40 DPS to enemy units. Ice Vortex has a cooldown of 4 seconds and requires 70 mana to be used in the game. It will also reduce the movement speed of enemy units by 25% and deal 25% more damage from his spells.

Nuking enemy heroes can be loads of fun with Ancient Apparition. You can use the active ability, Chilling Touch, with Ancient Apparition to deal 160 damage to enemy units on your next attack. Enemy units affected by Chilling Touch will have their movement speed slowed by 100% for a second. Ancient Apparition can cast Ice Vortex around enemy heroes and nuke them with Chilling Touch to drain the health of their opponents. Chilling Touch has a cooldown of 3 seconds and needs 60 mana to be used. He gains a bonus attack range of 240 for the duration of the spell, making Chilling Touch effective in team fights and in lanes to earn more experience with the Intelligence hero.

Players can purchase an Arcane Boots to increase the mana pool of Ancient Apparition. Arcane Boots provides 250 mana and 45 movement speed to the support hero. Ancient Apparition can use Arcane Boots to replenish up to 175 mana to nearby allied units. You can purchase an Arcane Boots for 1300 gold, making it tremendously resourceful before the first 10 minutes of a match. Many people upgrade an Arcane Boots to Guardian Greaves to restore 350 health and 200 mana to allies in a radius of 1200.   

Ancient Apparition can cast his ulti, Ice Blast, to deal 400 damage to enemy units anywhere on the map. Enemy units affected by Ice Blast will be unable to heal, taking up to 32 DPS for 12 seconds. Ice Blast can cause instant death to enemy heroes who have less than 14% of their max health while being affected by Ancient Apparition’s ulti. You can cast Chilling Touch before casting Ice Blast to deal bonus damage to your opponents with the support hero. Ice Blast has a cooldown of 40 seconds and needs 175 mana.  

You can buy a Rod of Atos for Ancient Apparition to root enemy units in battles. Ancient Apparition gains 24 Intelligence, 12 Strength, and 12 Agility by purchasing a Rod of Atos. You can use Cripple using Rod of Atos to root your opponents for 2 seconds. Cripple has a cooldown of 18 seconds and requires 50 mana. You can easily stun enemy heroes with Cold Feet after using Rod of Atos on them in team fights while playing Ancient Apparition. 

Best Allies for Ancient Apparition

Centaur Warrunner

Centaur Warrunner can be a reliable ally to Ancient Apparition. He can increase the movement speed of all of his allies at will, letting his teammates chase enemy heroes and escape out of battles without dying. Allies can start the game with 740 health and 255 mana, making Centaur Warrunner a sturdy tank hero in Dota 2. 

The melee hero can use Hoof Stomp to deal 300 damage to all enemy units in a radius of 350. Enemy units affected by Hoof Stomp will be stunned for up to 2.6 seconds. Hoof Stomp has a cooldown of 12 seconds and consumes 130 mana to be used. Centaur Warrunner can buy a Blink Dagger to catch his enemies off guard with Hoof Stomp. Ancient Apparition can cast Ice Vortex around his opponents before Centaur Warrunner can stun them. You can cast Cold Feet on disabled enemies to extend the duration of the stun. 

Ancient Apparition can strike enemy heroes using Ice Blast to destroy his foes in battles. You can launch Ice Blast after Centaur Warrunner hits enemies with a Double Edge to get fast kills in Dota 2 games. Double Edge deals a base damage of 300 and an additional 120% of Centaur Warrunner’s Strength attributes as damage to enemy heroes. Centaur Warrunner can cast a Double Edge once every 4 seconds to make his enemies run away from encounters.
