Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Use Ghost Scepter after baiting an enemy carry to attack you, causing them to waste time switching between targets.
  • Try to keep track of the cooldown on enemy nuke abilities. Think twice before using Ghost Scepter if you believe that a powerful magical nuke, such as Finger of Death icon.png Finger of Death​, has not yet been used.
