Bad against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
Chaos Knight icon.png
  • Razor has no way to deal with Chaos Knight's multiple illusions from Phantasm.
Centaur Warrunner icon.png
  • Centaur can use Stampede to break Static Link. It also prevents Razor from chasing Centaur Warruner or his teammates with Eye of the Storm, and Plasma Field's slow will do nothing to slow them down.
Earth Spirit icon.png
Huskar icon.png
  • Life Break along with Burning Spear can quickly kill Razor before Static Link steals enough damage for Razor to take down Huskar.
  • Berserker's Blood can make stealing Huskar's damage and using it against him somewhat dangerous, as Huskar will be able to inflict more and more Burning Spears rapidly.
  • Inner Fire prevents Razor from utilizing the stolen damage from Huskar.
Necrophos icon.png
  • Necrophos usually doesn't build much attack damage to steal from.
  • He can use Ghost Shroud to prevent Razor from attacking him with the stolen damage from Static Link.
  • Razor is somewhat vulnerable to magical damage, and Reaper's Scythe prevents him from escaping with his high movement speed when things get dangerous.
Outworld Devourer icon.png
  • Outworld Devourer doesn't care if Razor steals his damage because he does most of his damage through Arcane Orb.
  • Arcane Orb can easily steal enough intelligence from Razor to prevent him from casting spells such as Static Link with just a few hits due to Razor's lack of intelligence growth.
  • Sanity's Eclipse will do a ton of damage to Razor due to his low intelligence.
Queen of Pain icon.png
  • Blink can instantly break Static Link, making it useless against her.
  • Queen of Pain doesn't fully rely on her physical attack damage, so she can still fight after being hit with Static Link.
Slark icon.png
  • Pounce can easily break Static Link, making it less powerful against him.
  • Slark is one of the few heroes who can man fight a Razor, because of Essence Shift.
  • Shadow Dance can prevent Razor from killing him and may provide an opportunity to kill Razor due to it preventing Razor from attacking Slark.
Sniper icon.png
  • His increased attack range makes it very hard to get close enough for Static Link, Eye of the Storm and Razor's own attacks.
  • Headshot procs will slow Razor heavily regardless of Unstable Current, as it will knock him back for a brief duration.
Viper icon.png
  • Viper has multiple abilities that can slow Razor, and is one of the few heroes that can keep him immobile.
  • Altogether, Viper's skills reduce Razor's attack speed by up to 165, heavily reducing the benefit of the damage drain from Static Link.
Weaver icon.png
  • Shukuchi can break Static Link with little trouble.
  • Time Lapse can easily be used to avoid damage from Plasma Field.
  • Eye of the Storm and Unstable Current can't kill bugs from The Swarm.

Others[edit]

  • Dark Seer minimap icon.png Dark Seer can increase the movement speed of allies with Surge, breaking Static Link.
  • Any hero with teleport abilities (e.g. Ember Spirit minimap icon.png Ember Spirit, Storm Spirit minimap icon.png Storm Spirit) can easily break Static Link.
  • Heroes who rely on abilities to deal damage (e.g. Timbersaw minimap icon.png Timbersaw, Tinker minimap icon.png Tinker) can fight a Razor even after Static Link.

Items[edit]

Good against...[edit]

Bristleback icon.png
  • Eye of the Storm melts Bristleback's armor, and makes him much less tanky.
  • Static Link can completely drain Bristleback's bonus damage from Warpath.
Earthshaker icon.png
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Static Link cannot be dispelled by Rage or Infest, so Razor will be able to track Lifestealer down during an attempted escape.
  • Unstable Current makes it hard for Lifestealer to catch Razor.
  • Static Link can stop Open Wounds from getting any additional lifesteal, but keep in mind Lifestealer can still utilize Feast.
  • Eye of the Storm penetrates the spell immunity of Rage.
Monkey King icon.png
Phantom Assassin icon.png
  • Static Link can lower the damage output from Coup de Grace procs, hindering Phantom Assassin's main source of damage.
  • Eye of the Storm strikes cannot be evaded by Blur.
Spirit Breaker icon.png
  • Nether Strike can't remove Static Link and reduces Spirit Breaker's physical damage output.
  • Eye of the Storm melts Spirit Breaker's armor, and makes him much less tanky.
Troll Warlord icon.png
  • Troll Warlord relies on hitting fast and not very hard, so Razor quickly steals all of Troll's damage with Static Link.
Windranger icon.png
  • Static Link can lower the damage output from Focus Fire.
  • Eye of the Storm strikes cannot miss, even the Windrun is active.

Others[edit]

Works well with...[edit]

Death Prophet icon.png
  • Both Eye of the Storm and Exorcism deals AoE physical damage. Combined with Razor's armor reduction, the two can shred enemies and buildings in very little time.
Shadow Demon icon.png
  • Disruption will help Static Link steal more damage while banished.
Outworld Devourer icon.png
Bane icon.png
  • Nightmare allows Razor to easy steal damage bywith Static Link.
  • Fiend's Grip, like Nightmare, allows Razor to easily steal damage with Static Link.
Naga Siren icon.png
  • Ensnare will help Razor to fully steal an enemy's damage (preferably their carry in the middle of a fight) with Static Link.

Others[edit]

  • Heroes with long-lasting disables such as Lion minimap icon.png Lion, Shadow Shaman minimap icon.png Shadow Shaman, and Puck minimap icon.png Puck synergize well with Static Link, increasing its effective duration.
