  • Witch Blade is the best first item for Silencer giving him intelligence, armor, attack speed and perfect passive that synergies with his Glaives of Wisdom ability.
Skywrath Mage icon.png
  • Witch Blade gives him intelligence, armor, attack speed and passive ability that synergies with Arcane Bolt and scales into the late game.
Queen of Pain icon.png
  • Witch Blade gives her intelligence, armor, attack speed and passive ability.
Invoker icon.png
  • Witch Blade's passive stats work well with invoker, and the on-hit effect works with Cold Snap.
