- Glimpse's range at lvl 3-4 is more than enough to pull him back to a favorable position for your team to group up and kill him.
- Even though he is capable of picking you off and deal enough damage to kill you, Slark will be literally sticking his neck out, since jumping on Disruptor means being on his battleground.
