People can team up with their friends to disable their foes with heroes like Centaur Warrunner, Magnus, and Sven to allow their allies to attack enemy heroes while they are stunned. 

Here’s a deep dive into how you can use Sven in Dota 2 to stun multiple enemies using Storm Hammer in the strategy game.

Sven – Stun Multiple Enemies using Storm Hammer

Sven casts Storm Hammer on his opponents to stun them

Sven is a Strength hero with monstrous attack damage that can be used to annihilate enemy heroes in Dota 2. He can stun multiple enemies using Storm Hammer and cast spells to boost the movement speed and armor of his team during battles. 

The melee hero has a base health of 640 and a base mana pool of 267. Each hit from his blade deals 63 – 65 attack damage at the start of the game. Sven can move around the map at an increased movement speed of 325 after spawning, making him one of the fastest heroes on foot in Dota 2. 

Storm Hammer is a spell that is used hundreds of times by esports enthusiasts in Dota 2 matches to stun enemies with Sven. You can hurl a Storm Hammer at your opponents to stun all enemy units in a radius of 255 at level one, making Storm Hammer an outstanding ability to use to achieve First Blood in the game. Storm Hammer deals 95 damage to enemy units at level one and stuns multiple enemies for up to 1.4 seconds. You can cast Storm Hammer near the rivers before picking up the Bounty runes to increase your chances of getting First Blood with Sven in your matches with the Strength hero. 

Sven can farm more gold during the game by hitting enemy creeps in the safe lane. You can carry a few consumable items like Enchanted Mangoes and Healing Salves to help Sven survive longer after taking last hits on enemy creeps. Sven can also pull neutral creeps from their camps using allied creeps to bring enemy creeps closer to the tower. 

Take your time with Sven to farm his core items before initiating fights in Dota 2. The carry hero needs to purchase a few basic items, like Arcane Boots, and Echo Sabre, before he can attack enemy heroes for easy kills. 

You can level up Great Cleave to earn bonus gold from enemy creeps and neutrals in the game. The passive ability, Great Cleave, lets Sven deal up to 25% of his attack damage to strike nearby enemy units. The melee hero can destroy several creeps at once by taking at least one level of Great Cleave before reaching level 6. You can max out Great Cleave to deal up to 100% attack damage to surrounding enemy units.

Sven can cast Warcry every once in 20 seconds. The carry hero can use Storm Hammer to disable enemy heroes and immediately use Warcry to let his allies escape before his opponents get a chance to slay his teammates in battles. 

Warcry is an ability that can be upgraded several times through the Talent Tree by leveling up Sven. You can reach level 10 to increase the duration of Warcry by 3 seconds for the Strength hero. Sven can provide an additional armor of 10 using Warcry by reaching level 20. People can also increase the movement speed gained by Warcry at level 20 through the Talent Tree.

Sven can deal massive amounts of damage to stunned enemy heroes using his passive ability, Great Cleave, along with God’s Strength to gain several kill streaks in his matches. God’s Strength has a cooldown of 95 seconds and needs 200 mana to be used per cast.
