Dota 2 Outworld Destroyer Guide – Get Killing Sprees in Battles

Find out how to get killing sprees in battles while playing Outworld Destroyer in Dota 2. 


Intelligence heroes are easy to learn among the dozens of characters available in the online game. Most of the Intelligence heroes you can find in Dota 2 are made for the support role, and certain Intelligence heroes are built to become carry heroes. You can choose carry heroes to increase your kill counts in the massively multiplayer game and win praise for your gameplay from your friends during decisive team fights.  

Getting killing sprees with carry heroes in Dota 2 matches is a matter of teamwork and focus. You’ll need to figure out different ways to maintain your kill counts and increase them over time during the game without getting killed. Dying naively in a team fight after getting a few early kills in your matches can put your efforts in vain.  

Carry heroes like Anti-Mage can blink out of battle to save their own lives. Strength heroes, such as, Chaos Knight, can create illusions using Phantasm to walk away from battles without taking lethal amounts of damage. Professional Dota 2 players can pick Outworld Destroyer to gain numerous kill streaks in matches and farm more gold in lanes to become dominant in battles. 

Outworld Destroyer – Get Killing Sprees in Battles

Outworld Destroyer begins a killing spree by leveling up Arcane Orb

Outworld Destroyer is a carry hero with a large mana pool. He has a base mana of 435 at the start of the game, giving Outworld Destroyer plenty of mana to cast his spells in lanes. The ranged hero has 30 Intelligence and gains a massive 4.2 Intelligence per level.

He has a base attack damage of 49 – 61, letting him level up faster by killing enemy creeps in lanes. Physical attacks from Outworld Destroyer have a maximum range of 450, making the Intelligence hero stronger against melee heroes during the first few minutes of the game. 

People who choose Outworld Destroyer to gain killing sprees can head to the mid lane for bonus experience from creep waves. You can purchase a few items, such as Null Talismans, and a Bottle to help you last longer in the mid lane while farming with Outworld Destroyer. The Intelligence hero can use a Bottle to store and activate runes from the river between waves of enemy creeps.

Players can focus on leveling up Astral Imprisonment after spawning into the game with Outworld Destroyer. You can cast Astral Imprisonment to banish enemy units for up to 4 seconds. Enemy units affected by Astral Imprisonment can take up to 360 damage from the spell. Outworld Destroyer can steal up to 22% of the target unit’s mana capacity for 60 seconds by casting Astral Imprisonment on enemy heroes. 

Astral Imprisonment has a cooldown of 12 seconds and consumes 150 mana to be used per cast. Many people use Astral Imprisonment on enemy heroes to prevent them from taking First Blood early in the matches. It has a cast range of 650, allowing Outworld Destroyer to cast Astral Imprisonment from a safe distance in the lane. You can increase the cast range of Astral Imprisonment by 100 at level 15 through the Talent Tree. 

You can max out Astral Imprisonment to be able to drain the mana pool of enemy heroes who fight against Outworld Destroyer in the lanes. The Intelligence hero can take at least one level of Essence Flux for Outworld Destroyer to regain mana after casting a spell. The passive ability, Essence Flux, provides a 30% chance to restore up to 25% of the mana pool at level one. Outworld Destroyer can max out Essence Flux to have a chance of restoring up to 55% of the mana pool. 

Arcane Orb is the primary ability that can turn Outworld Destroyer into a serial killer in Dota 2. A maxed out Arcane Orb will deal up to 16% of the mana pool of the Harbinger as Pure damage to enemy units. Arcane Orb has a cooldown of 6 seconds at level one and has no cooldown on the ability at level 4. Make sure you toggle Arcane Orb on to get killing sprees during team fights with Outworld Destroyer. 

A worthwhile strategy to explore in Dota 2 while playing Outworld Destroyer is to banish enemy heroes on sight. You can signal your friends to move into their positions before initiating combat in the lanes. The Intelligence hero can deal loads of damage using Arcane Orb to mitigate enemy heroes to increase the kill count of Harbinger in battles. 

You can use Astral Imprisonment on enemy heroes to prevent them from landing killing blows on allied heroes. Seasoned Dota 2 players will avoid casting Astral Imprisonment on themselves while escaping team fights as it is more effective to banish enemy heroes chasing Outworld Destroyer. 

Once you get a few kills with Outworld Destroyer, you can rely on items like Force Staff, Rod of Atos, and Shadow Blade to flee from encounters. These items can be useful to get out of the way of danger after losing a significant amount of health during team fights. 

His ulti, Sanity’s Eclipse, can be cast on multiple enemies to deal a base damage of 400. You can deal an additional 0.4 damage to enemy units based on the difference in the mana pool points of Outworld Destroyer and his opponents. Sanity’s Eclipse has a cooldown of 130 seconds and needs 450 mana to be used per cast. 

Killing sprees are not easy to maintain during Dota 2 matches. Once you get a Double Kill, Triple Kill, or a Dominating kill streak, you can enter and exit battles discreetly with Outworld Destroyer to avoid being killed and losing the killing sprees. You can carry a few Town Portal Scrolls to help you teleport back to base after getting hit by enemy heroes.
