Ember Spirit icon.png
  • The high mobility provided by Fire Remnant makes Windranger hard to find good position to land Shackleshot or a full duration of Focus Fire.
  • Flame Guard deals considerable magical damage to Windranger.
  • Ember Spirit's talent tree gives him a true strike option at lvl 20, which makes Windrun less effective as an escape
Morphling icon.png
  • By using Morph, Morphling can use the Windrun and Shackleshot to counter Windranger herself.
  • Waveform can 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

Huskar icon.png
  • Windranger will not receive damage from Burning Spear by using Windrun.
  • Focus Fire can finish off Huskar when he is in low health.
Phantom Assassin icon.png

Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Focus Fire can single out real Phantom Lancer from the illusions beforehand.
