Bad against...[edit]

Broodmother icon.png
  • Enchantress is well known for taking control of various summons with her Enchant. However, Broodmother's summons are not a good target for that, because she can swarm up a bunch of her summons with Spawn Spiderlings and Enchantress has no good waveclear (Spawn Spiderlings can also kill creeps controlled with Enchant).
  • Broodmother often buys Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar that can help her manfight Enchantress without getting affected by Untouchable.
Chen icon.png
  • Chen can use Holy Persuasion on creeps controlled by Enchant.
  • Ironically, Enchantress can Enchant Chen's creeps.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
  • Frostbite does 1000 magical damage to Enchantress's creeps and roots them for 10 seconds, which hinders her ability to gank.
Juggernaut icon.png
  • Blade Fury makes you spell immune and does magical damage which Enchantress gets wrecked by. If you can catch her with a slow or stun early game, you can kill her. Be careful late game though, since Impetus goes through spell immunity.
  • Omnislash pure damage burst on a squishy enchantress, that forces her to get a ghost scepter.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Rage gives bonus attack speed and protection from Untouchable making him big threat for low armor Enchantress.
  • Open Wounds will lessen her high movement speed, something she usually relies on to escape.
  • He can finish Enchantress off with her own Enchanted creeps, devouring them with Infest.
Lina icon.png
  • Enchantress has very little health pool and cannot tank Lina's heavy magic burst.
  • Untouchable is decently countered by Fiery Soul, exposing Enchantress' weakness to physical damage due to her low armor.
  • Lina is decent at clearing creeps and can kill Enchantress' creeps quickly.
Luna icon.png
  • Enchantress has pitiful HP, even more pitiful than Luna, so Lucent Beam and Eclipse will often harass her through her Untouchable.
  • With Moon Glaives ability, Luna can clear Enchantress's creep wave very efficiently.
  • After Luna purchases Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, she will be able to harass Enchantress very effective without getting affected by Untouchable.
Meepo icon.png
  • Meepo minimap icon.png Meepo can quickly kill Enchantress with a Poof combo rendering Untouchable useless.
Riki icon.png
Timbersaw icon.png
  • Burst damage from Timbersaw's abilities is more than enough to deal with Enchantress and her creeps.
  • Timbersaw doesn't rely on his physical attacks, which makes Untouchable useless against him.
  • Timber Chain can close the gap between them and minimize damage from Impetus.
  • However, Impetus can ignore Reactive Armor if Enchantress is not a primary target for Timbersaw or if he is disabled
Troll Warlord icon.png
Venomancer icon.png
  • Untouchable won't mitigate Venomancer magical damage, and Enchantress is vulnerable to poisons.
  • Both Venomous Gale and Poison Nova lowers the amount of healing received by Enchantress and her allies from Nature's Attendants.
Windranger icon.png
  • Focus Fire ignores Untouchable.
  • Windrun's speed allows easy pursuit or escape, while the evasion greatly reduces the threat of Enchantress' Impetus, especially when retreating.
  • Shackleshot is a powerful disable if Enchantress gets too close to one of her own minions.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail can turn Impetus against Enchantress since she has a low HP pool.
  • Spirit Vessel icon.png Spirit Vessel lowers the amount of healing received by Enchantress and her allies from Nature's Attendants.
  • Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar's spell immunity ignores Untouchable's attack speed slow.
  • Silver Edge icon.png Silver Edge breaks Untouchable for a couple of seconds.
  • Dagon 1 icon.png Dagon nukes Enchantress's low health.

Good against...[edit]

Ember Spirit icon.png
  • Impetus will deal huge amounts of damage when he uses a Fire Remnant to escape.
  • Flame Guard is useless against Impetus.
Lycan icon.png
  • Enchant allows you to steal his Necronomicon 1 icon.png Necronomicon creeps and the wolves he gets form Summon Wolves.
  • He relies heavily on right clicks making Untouchable very effective against him.
  • If he tries to run away Impetus will do huge amounts of damage.
Omniknight icon.png
Spirit Breaker icon.png
  • Spirit Breaker won’t do much harm because of Untouchable and Nature's Attendants. Unless Aiushtha is low on HP, Spirit Breaker won’t catch her with mere spells.
Sven icon.png
  • Against her Untouchable, Sven is barely able to hit Enchantress without using his Black King Bar.
  • Impetus goes through Sven's Black King Bar.
Ursa icon.png
  • Enchant dispels Overpower.
  • Enchant's slow can help kite Ursa in fights and also in lane.
  • Enchantress can out harrass Ursa in lane by using her long attack range and Untouchable, as well as out sustaining him with Nature's Attendants.

Others[edit]

Works well with...[edit]

Legion Commander icon.png
  • Legion Commander's Press the Attack can heal (as Enchantress is very squishy) and save her from enemy disables (as Press the Attack applies a strong dispel).
  • Legion Commander's Press the Attack also grants Enchantress bonus attack speed which is great with Impetus.
Lich icon.png
  • Lich can make Enchantress even tankier against physical attacks using Frost Shield.
  • Spell immunity goes through Untouchable, however Frost Shield will still grant Enchantress armor.
Io icon.png
  • Enchantress can heal Io with Nature's Attendants while it uses Tether on someone which will heal that tethered unit tremendously.
  • Overcharge will give the fragile Enchantress some much needed durability in combination with Io's shared regeneration while also boosting up her attack speed, making Impetus even earlier a much greater threat for the enemy team.
Warlock icon.png
  • Warlock can slow multiple enemies with his Upheaval in a huge area, enabling Enchantress to safely attack with her Impetus.
  • In combination with Fatal Bonds Impetus can deal huge amounts of damage to all bonded enemies. (since the shared damage from Fatal Bonds is the same damage type the attacked unit suffered)
  • Shadow Word is a strong heal which can restore the hp of the squishy Enchantress so she can save her own healing spell. (since Nature's Attendants has a long cooldown)
