Bad Against...[edit]

Chaos Knight icon.png
  • Phantasm dispels Ignite and makes targeting the real Chaos Knight much harder.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Ogre Magi has nothing against Rage and his high health pool amplifies Feast.
Meepo icon.png
  • Ogre Magi has single-targeted magical-only damage and disables and is less effective against Meepo's clones.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Ogre Magi has no AoE damage or disables and has nothing to deal with Phantom Lancer's illusions.
  • Doppelganger disjoints and dispels Ignite.

Oracle icon.png


  • Earth Spirit minimap icon.png Earth Spirit's useful kit of Slows, Stuns, and Silences can set up kills on Ogre Magi and the silence can stop him from using his abilities.
  • Arc Warden minimap icon.png Arc Warden's Tempest Double helpful for killing Ogre who doesn't have good multi-disable.
  • Puck minimap icon.png Puck silences Ogre Magi with Waning Rift, and Phase Shift makes Puck untargetable for the duration.
  • Anti-Mage can caught Ogre Magi who has low mobility by blink and his intelligence grow and build making Mana Void does more damage.
  • Passive abilities that proc on being attacked, like Counter Helix and Moment of Courage are more likely to be triggered during a Berserker's Call or a Duel if the target has the increased attack speed of Bloodlust.
  • Winter Wyvern minimap icon.png Winter Wyvern's Winter's Curse works very well against the increased attack speed from Bloodlust.


Good against...[edit]

Io icon.png
  • Ignite has long duration damage-over-time and prevents Io from healing his Tethered ally.
Templar Assassin icon.png
  • The damage block instances of Refraction can be burned down with Ignite.
Treant Protector icon.png
  • The damage block instances of Living Armor can be burned down with Ignite.


  • Heroes that rely on Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger will be prevented from blinking by Ignite for a long duration.

Works well with...[edit]

Juggernaut icon.png
  • Bloodlust gives Juggernaut increased attack speed and movement speed allowing him to output more damage in team-fight.
Shadow Fiend icon.png
  • Bloodlust increases Shadow Fiend's attack speed allowing him to output more damage in team-fight.
Sniper icon.png
  • Bloodlust increases Sniper's attack speed and movement speed, enabling him to farm faster and output more damage in team-fight.
Sven icon.png
  • Sven's naturally high damage output gets enhanced by Bloodlust's attack speed buff.
  • Warcry combined with Bloodlust gives Sven almost hasted movement speed.
  • Ignite and Fireblast synergies well with Storm Hammer and makes it much harder for enemies to kite Sven.
Wraith King icon.png
  • Bloodlust's gives Wraith King attack speed to output more damage with Mortal Strike.
  • The combination of Wraithfire Blast and Ogre Magi's disables gives great chasing potential.


  • Lone Druid, Lifestealer.
