Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Rod of Atos is an excellent alternative to Vanguard icon.png Vanguard for ranged intelligence heroes that need more health and mana, with a powerful active ability for killing other heroes.
  • This item can be combined with Necronomicons, they will be able to hit more often and burn more mana.
  • The item can be used for ganking and after a team fight for chasing survivors or to escape.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The particle effects of Cripple include runes resembling the Elvish scripts from The Lord of the Rings, a novel by J.R.R. Tolkien (specifically the alphabet bee or umbar in Tengwar).
