Bad against...[edit]

Axe icon.png
Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Rupture turns Windranger's mobility against her.
Centaur Warrunner icon.png
  • Stampede can help his teammates escape from Windrun and Focus Fire.
  • Return will shred through Windranger's health if she chooses to attack him during Focus Fire.
Nyx Assassin icon.png
  • Many of Nyx Assassin's abilities are good against Windranger.
    • Impale is great for stunning Windranger and allowing additional disables to be landed.
    • Mana Burn is useful against Windranger's decent intelligence growth and also burns some mana, preventing her from using more abilities.
    • Spiked Carapace is easy to use against Powershot.
    • Vendetta allows Nyx Assassin to sneak up on and deal massive damage to Windranger without giving Windranger a chance to use Windrun to evade it.
  • Nyx Assassin's item build allows him to easily deal with Windranger.
Ember Spirit icon.png
  • The high mobility provided by Fire Remnant makes it hard for Windranger to find a good position to land Shackleshot or a full duration of Focus Fire.
  • Flame Guard deals considerable magical damage to Windranger.
Morphling icon.png
  • By using Morph, Morphling can use Windrun and Shackleshot to counter Windranger herself.
  • Waveform can allow Morphling to easily chase down Windranger.
  • Windranger's low health also makes her vulnerable Morphling's magical nukes, especially the Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade and Adaptive Strike combo.
Razor icon.png
  • Static Link greatly lowers Windranger's damage output from Focus Fire.
  • Eye of the Storm strikes cannot miss, even if Windrun is active.
Spectre icon.png
  • Spectre can instantly escape Focus Fire or hunt a Windranger with Haunt.
  • Spectre can catch up to her with Spectral Dagger, even if she uses Windrun.
  • Desolate allows Spectre to hit Windranger through Windrun.
  • Dispersion makes Spectre tanky and also reflects some damage back to Windranger.
Sven icon.png
  • Sven with aghanim's scepter along with his level 15 talent (Storm hammer dispels) can easily chase down and dispels her Windrun at the same time.



Good against...[edit]

Earthshaker icon.png
  • Windrun can used to dodge Earthshaker's abilities if Windranger has a quick reaction time.
  • Focus Fire and Windrun allows Windranger to kite Earthshaker.
  • A Windranger with fast fingers can prevent Earthshaker from using Fissure with Shackleshot.
Huskar icon.png
  • Windranger prevents Huskar from landing Burning Spears by using Windrun.
  • Because Huskar tends to be at low health, Focus Fire and Powershot are good abilities against him.
Phantom Assassin icon.png
  • Phantom Assassin's Blur will be useless if Windranger managed to get Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar or Bloodthorn icon.png Bloodthorn, and other than Stifling Dagger, Phantom Assassin has no abilities that can bypass Windrun.
  • Focus Fire can still deal considerable damage despite Blur's evasion due to the increased attack speed.
Pudge icon.png
  • Pudge relies on his hook to initiate his combo. As long as she's able to avoid the hook with Windrun and shackle him, Windranger can take him down easily. Pudge's low armor means that he won't be able to endure Focus Fire for long.
Ursa icon.png
  • Windranger can avoid Ursa's primary source of damage, Fury Swipes, by simply using Windrun. The slow from Earthshock is also rendered irrelevant by Windrun.
  • Focus Fire and Windrun can be used to kite Ursa.


Works well with...[edit]

Nature's Prophet icon.png
  • Windranger can shackle a unit to a sprouted tree.
