  • The formation of the owner and the illusions is always the same. One spawns on the owner's cast location and the others randomly on north, east, south or west side each.
  • Though the formation is always the same, the owner and the illusions take a random position in the formation and have all the same facing angle.
  • Recasting this replaces the illusions from the previous cast which are currently under the owner's control.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Recommended items to get with Manta Style are those that gives stats, evasion, movement speed, damage block, attack modifiers and auras, such as Heart of Tarrasque icon.png Heart of Tarrasque, Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi, Butterfly icon.png Butterfly, Armlet of Mordiggian (Inactive) icon.png Armlet of Mordiggian, Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade, Assault Cuirass icon.png Assault Cuirass and Radiance (Active) icon.png Radiance.
    • Since Manta Style's illusions do not last quite long, Radiance is not as wise to build with Manta Style, as the burn damage does not stack and the illusions typically do not last long enough to travel from one area to another and deal the burn damage. On some heroes, however, it is still useful for farming and split pushing at the same time.
  • Manta Style is typically used to slightly increase damage output or confuse enemies during a teamfight. Since the illusions last only 20 seconds, it is better to use them together with your real hero to attack simultaneously instead of using them as a lure for the enemy, unless you are well coordinated with your team. It is particularly useful against heroes with single target disables, such as bash.
  • The active of the Manta Style applies a basic dispel, so it can replace a Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere against a Bloodthorn icon.png Bloodthorn, Dagon 1 icon.png Dagon, or Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos.
  • An Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core can be helpful if you are constantly summoning illusions to push lanes.
  • Doesn't work with Lone Druid's Spirit Bear.
  • The illusions can be used to scout to secure your farming, prepare a gank or before attacking Roshan.
