Nature's Prophet is a ranged intelligence hero, whose play style is different from most intelligence heroes, because he can be almost anywhere at any given time with his Teleportation. This ability allows him to participate in most ganks and pushes at a moment's notice. With Sprout, he creates a ring of trees, trapping anyone within them in place, serving to disable anyone caught within them. The trees around him serve as his objects of power; using them, he summons sentient tree beings known as Treants from trees on the map with his Nature's Call ability. Wrath of Nature is the main and only directly damaging spell in his arsenal, but it can potentially be very powerful, as it can inflict increased damage with each bounce off subsequent enemies and can clear out multiple creep waves with its moderate cooldown and mana cost. Commonly played as a ganker, offlaner and jungler and known as a strong pusher, Nature's Prophet has superb farming capabilities and global presence, giving him the power to be anywhere on the map. Late-game, Nature's Prophet makes himself useful by constantly distracting and annoying the enemy team by pushing. If attention is not given to him, he can single-handedly win the game by constantly taking several towers or even the Ancient.


Nature's Prophet minimap icon.pngNature's Prophet
▶️ "I woke within the seed and saw my destiny, and many were its branches."
When Verodicia, Goddess of the Woods, had finished filling in the green places, having planted the coiled-up spirit in the seed, having lured the twining waters from deep within the rock, having sworn the sun its full attention to the growing things, she realized that her own time had reached its end, and like one of the leaves whose fate she had imprinted in the seed, she would fall without seeing the fruiting of her dream. It pained her to leave the world bereft, for the sprouts had not yet broken through the soil--and they would be tender and vulnerable to every sort of harm. She found in her seed pouch one last seed that she had missed in the sowing. She spoke a single word into the seed and swallowed it as she fell. Her vast body decomposed throughout the long winter, becoming the humus that would feed the seedlings in the spring. And on the morning of the vernal equinox, before the rest of the forest had begun to wake, that last seed ripened and burst in an instant. From it stepped Nature's Prophet, in full leaf, strong and wise, possessing Verodicia's power to foresee where he would be needed most in defense of the green places--and any who might be fortunate enough to call him an ally.


Sprout icon.png
Sprouts a ring of trees around a unit, trapping it in place, and providing vision in a 500 radius.
Cast Animation: 0.35+1.14
Cast Range: 625/700/775/850
Trees Spawn Radius: 150
Duration: 3/4/5/6
Cooldown: 11/10/9/8 (With talent: 8.25/7.5/6.75/6)
Mana: 70/90/110/130
Partially pierces spell immunity. Cannot directly target spell immune enemies, targets ground instead. Can target spell immune allies.
Partially blocked by Linken's Sphere. Blocked fully only when directly targeted. Does not block when ground targeted.
Verdant overgrowth is a common ailment reported by Nature's Prophet's attackers.


  • Creates a tree on every 45th degree of a 150 radius circle, resulting in 8 trees forming a ring and trapping the targeted unit.
  • Destroying one tree is enough to allow units to walk in and out of the ring of trees.
  • Trees created with Sprout act exactly like the other trees on the map. They block vision, pathing and interact with spells the same way.
  • Sprout grants 500 range flying vision around the targeted point for its duration.
  • Units not controlled by any player do not try to path around the Sprout trees, but simply walk against them as if they are not there.
    • This effectively causes them to get stuck, until they change directions (e.g. when aggro-ing them).
  • Sprout trees have a different model and are smaller than other trees on the map and they do not have a dying animation.
  • Tango icon.png Tango heals for twice as long when targeting a Sprout tree, using the ward duration instead of the tree duration.

Teleportation icon.png
Teleports to any point on the map.

The Prophet keeps his sentinel over the forest, protecting it when in need.


  • Double-tapping the ability automatically targets the team's Fountain.
  • During the cast time, a visual effect is created around Nature's Prophet and at the target location. These visual effects are visible to everyone.
  • Also plays a sound at the target location, however, this is only audible to enemies when Nature's Prophet is visible to them.

Verodicia bestowed the Prophet with the ability to summon the Treant Guard, a mythical sentient army of the wild.


  • Nature's Call can only create as many treants as there are trees in the targeted area.
  • Destroys all trees in the target area, regardless of how many treants are created.
  • Treants always spawn at the center of the area.
  • Must have at least 1 tree within its area to be castable. Targeting an area without trees gives an error message.
    • However, if trees within the targeted area disappear during the cast time, the spell is not canceled, wasting mana and cooldown.

Recommended items[edit]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon.png Tango provides health regeneration for Nature's Propet to survive his lane.
  • Healing Salve icon.png Healing Salve restores health as well.
  • Clarity icon.png Clarity restores mana to Nature's Prophet so he can continually use his spells in the early game, particularly Nature's Call, as his base intelligence and comparatively costly spells means that he will otherwise quickly run out.
  • Iron Branch icon.png Iron Branch is cheap attribute item that can shore up Nature's Prophet's health, damage, and mana.

Early game:

  • Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick provides burst health and mana can give him the survivability to escape an enemy gank, or enough mana to cast one more spell.
  • Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed provide Nature's Prophet with a boost to his movement speed, important for catching up to enemies to cast his spells during ganks. While he has strong global mobility in Teleportation, having enough speed to re-position during fights is crucial.
  • Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll augments Nature's Prophet's global mobility. While Teleportation already grants him global presence without the need to target his destination at an allied building, a Town Portal Scroll allows him to use the two in tandem, such as retreating to base or defending a tower after using his innate spell. As well, using the Town Portal Scroll will leave Teleportation at the ready should an opportunity to gank an enemy present itself shortly.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon.png Magic Wand provide additional attribute bonuses to Nature's Prophet, and give him even more burst health and mana regeneration. A fully-charged Magic Wand can give Nature's Prophet enough mana to cast any of his spells even when completely empty.
  • Phase Boots icon.png Phase Boots augment Nature's Prophet's attack damage and allows him to boost his movement speed, it can make him a bigger threat in ganks since he can maneuver into position more easily after casting Teleportation, to pen in an enemy with Sprout and deal heavily damaging attacks. He can use the item to phase through other units, such as his own Treants.
  • Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade gives Nature's Prophet more initiation and escape ability, augmenting his already formidable global presence due to Teleportation. Used offensively, Nature's Prophet can get in a powerful first strike on unwary enemies prior to disabling and focusing them down. Used defensively, the invisibility and increased movement speed allow him to evade any enemy rotations aimed at halting his pushes, and can allow him to invisibly cast Teleportation.

Late game:

  • Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence is a powerful early aggression tool. Its low cost and easy buildup make it possible to obtain quickly in the early game, while the bonuses it provides augment Nature's Prophet's physical attacks (via increased intelligence, damage and attack speed) and allow him to gank enemies to great effect by silencing them, preventing them from casting retaliatory disables or escape spells. The augmented mana regeneration also allows him to stay out in the field longer without needing to return to base as often.
  • Nullifier icon.png Nullifier complements Orchid Malevolence's silence with its mute that disables enemy items, taking out a dangerous enemy.

Situational items:

  • Hand of Midas icon.png Hand of Midas, if obtained early, can greatly augment Nature's Prophet's late-game potential by accelerating his gold and experience gain at the cost of early-game aggression. As well, the bonus attack speed give his physical attacks more power.
  • Power Treads icon.png Power Treads provide Nature's Prophet with a boost to his attributes and additional attack speed. The attributes allow him to give himself more health, or mana and base damage.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse massively increases the ganking power of Nature's Prophet by giving him a hex ability, giving him another way to control enemies' movements on top of Sprout. It also provides a large increase to his intelligence, giving him more damage and mana, as well as all-around attributes and powerful mana regeneration.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter augments the strength of Wrath of Nature, allowing it to deal more damage overall and sprouting Treants upon successfully killing an enemy unit, be it a creep or hero. This greatly augments Nature's Prophet's pushing power, since it will summon reinforcements upon striking down enemy lane creeps.
  • Desolator icon.png Desolator can greatly augment Nature's Prophet's offensive and pushing potential. The increased damage and armor reduction on targets make his physical attacks much deadlier, allowing him to soften up gank targets or reduce tower armor to hasten pushes.
  • Necronomicon 1 icon.png Necronomicon provides Nature's Prophet with additional pushing power and an additional damage source when ganking enemy heroes. At level 3, the Necronomicon will also provide True Sight, which can be used to de-ward enemy vision and prevent invisible enemy heroes from escaping ganks.
  • Silver Edge icon.png Silver Edge, when upgraded from Shadow Blade, can give Nature's Prophet additional ganking power when used properly. By applying a break on gank targets, enemy passives can be removed from play, increasing the odds of a successful kill. Also, the bonus attributes give Nature's Prophet increased resilience.
  • Drum of Endurance icon.png Drum of Endurance aids Nature's Prophet in ganks and pushes due to its active which boosts movement and attack speed of himself and allies.
  • Force Staff icon.png Force Staff can be a useful item to purchase on Nature's Prophet, depending on the situation. It can enhance his mobility by allowing him to quickly re-position himself, such as pushing himself over a cliff, re-positioning allies, or breaking Linken's Sphere on a gank target prior to other disables.
  • Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger can tremendously increase Nature's Prophet's maneuverability and ability to evade enemy ganks. After using Teleportation to arrive at a lane and Nature's Call to summon Treants to push, Blink Dagger can be used to instantly jump away to evade any enemies attempting to rotate in. It can also be used to initiate more easily on gank targets, as they may easily run away if they see a Teleportation coming in.
  • Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail is a very unorthodox early-game item to build on Nature's Prophet, as he does not have the health to efficiently utilize any reflected damage. However, it can be a powerful offensive item, as it provides a large amount of attack damage and intelligence, tremendously increasing the power of his right-click damage. As well, the armor increases his survivability and the active can still be useful when focusing down single targets, and any damage incurred can be replenished by returning to the fountain with Teleportation.
  • Dagon 1 icon.png Dagon gives Nature's Prophet significantly more ganking power as he can instantly burst down a portion a gank target's health, making successful kills more likely. His ability to farm and get kills also allows him to upgrade it to allow it to remain potent throughout a match.
  • Assault Cuirass icon.png Assault Cuirass is a very powerful offensive and pushing item. By boosting his attack speed and inflicting the enemy with a negative armor aura, Nature's Prophet's physical attacks become much deadlier, and the increased armor also gives him survivability against physical damage. As well, the negative armor aura affects enemy buildings as well as creeps, and the allied aura increases creep armor and attack speed, making pushes more powerful when outside of teamfights.
  • Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir is a strong all-around pushing and fighting item. The greatly increased attack speed as well as attack modifier allows Nature's Prophet to make short work of creep waves, and increases the potency of his attacks during ganks and teamfights. The active can be cast to increase damage output via proccing the shield.

  • Nature's Call was called Force of Nature in DotA.
  • In DotA, Nature's Prophet's name was Furion, a reference to Malfurion Stormrage from the Warcraft universe. His Dota 2 name had to be changed in order to avoid copyright issues with Blizzard. He is still called Furion by the majority of the player base and is referred to as "Furion" in the game files.
  • Nature's Prophet was originally named "Tequoia" in Dota 2, but this was changed for unspecified reasons.
  • "Nature's Profit" is a popular nickname for Nature's Prophet, due to his farming and splitpushing playstyle.
  • Nature's Prophet's early lore concept made him the father of Anti-Mage minimap icon.png Anti-Mage, and Terrorblade minimap icon.png Terrorblade (similar to how he was in DotA), but this idea was later scrapped.
  • Nature's Prophet's spawning response, ▶️ "I speak for the trees." is a direct reference and homage to Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.
  • One of Nature's Prophet's last hitting responses, ▶️ "Green is good.", is a reference to "greed is good," a quote from the 1987 film Wall Street, as well as the Warcraft III cheat code of the same name.
