Bane uses Brain Sap to deal Pure damage to enemy heroes

Bane is an Intelligence hero with multiple spells that can be used to deal Pure damage to enemy heroes. People can start a match with a base health of 660 and a base mana of 351. The support hero can nuke enemy heroes in lanes and during team fights to earn valuable assists in Dota 2 games.

Enemy units affected by Enfeeble have their health regeneration rate decreased by 60% for the duration of the spell. Enfeeble has a cooldown of 7 seconds and consumes 70 mana to be used per cast. Bane can reduce the attack damage of melee heroes like Legion Commander and Abaddon by using Enfeeble on them early in a match. 

The ranged hero can deal 300 Pure damage to enemy heroes using Brain Sap. You can use Brain Sap after losing a bit of health to restore 300 health to Bane by using Brain Sap on your opponents. Brain Sap has a cooldown of 11 seconds and requires 160 mana. You can reduce the cooldown of Brain Sap by 3 seconds at level 15. 

Bane can be a solid support hero during team fights. He can use Nightmare on enemy heroes to put them to sleep for 7 seconds.

You can use Glimmer Cape to turn invisible for 5 seconds, gaining an additional 50% magic resistance. Bane can use his spells without breaking his invisibility, making it resourceful in battles to earn more points for the Dead Reckoning.

Bane can cast his ulti, Fiend’s Grip, after using Glimmer Cape to remain hidden while channeling the ability. Fiend’s Grip deals 150 DPS for up to 6 seconds and can be used to paralyze enemy heroes. Enemy units caught in Bane’s ulti will be unable to move, cast spells, or use items for the duration of Fiend’s Grip. His ulti has a cooldown of 100 seconds and requires 400 mana.

Necrophos – Make Foes Fear The Reaper

Necrophos slows the movement speed of enemies to help his allies escape

Necrophos can help players rescue their teammates by using several spells to mitigate enemy heroes in Dota 2. He has an increased projectile speed of 1200, letting him cast Death Pulses multiple times throughout the match to heal allies. 

People can take the mid lane with Necrophos to level up faster with the Intelligence hero. You can max out Death Pulse for Necrophos to deal 280 damage to enemy units in a radius of 500. Any allied unit around Necrophos gains 130 health per cast of Death Pulse. You can eliminate waves of enemy creeps and neutrals with Death Pulse to gain bonus gold and experience.

Ghost Shroud has a cooldown of 16 seconds and needs 50 mana. The low mana cost of Ghost Shroud makes it easier to escape battles while playing Necrophos.

The item can be bought for 4700 gold in the game. You can use Ghost Shroud throughout your matches with Necrophos to drain the health of enemy heroes in battles.
