DotA aka Defense of the Ancients remains one of the most popular custom made maps for Warcraft III. Giving the players a better understanding of this complex and sometimes complicated game here is this hero guide.
Here's a little story that will tell you all about Sven's past: "A follower of the great God of Order, Paladine, Sven has sworn to uphold the rights of all. Born of a Knight and a Night Elf and ostracized since birth, Sven has lead a solitary existence of meditation and training.
He has come out of his wanderings determined to guard the innocent against evil. Armed with his blessed cleaving blade Justice, and harnessing the power to strike down his enemies with the might of God's Strength, Sven's wrath toward the unjust is a sight to behold."
This hero can be recuited from the Sentinel Strength tavern and learning to use his abilities means to harness the power of a god:- Storm Bolt
(Shortkey T):Targets an area around an enemy unit and releases a magical hammer dealing damage (100/175/250/325) and stunning enemy units. 250 AOE. The AoE targeting reticle must be centered over an enemy unit. The projectile can't be dodged by blinking or moving away.
- Great Cleave
(Shortkey C): Sven strikes with such force that all nearby enemies take damage. 175 AOE splash and 20/30/40/50 % of the damage given by the myghty hero.
- Warcry Warcry
(Shortkey W): With the righteous anger of one wielding Justice, Sven lets loose a mighty Warcry, heartening his allies for battle. Sven and nearby allies gain movespeed (12%) and increased armor (3/6/9/12). 450 AOE and lasts for 6 seconds.
- God's Strength
(Shortkey R): Sven gets pumped up! Adds bonus damage (100/125/150%) for 25 seconds.
Only increases base damage and that given by the primary attribute of Sven. Raw bonus damage is not increased. Can only be removed by Purge (from Diffusal, Stone Gaze, Unstable Current or the Satyr Trickster).
I think that Sven is a good all-around hero. The only thing stopping him from being a pure carry is his melee range. He has already above average damage with his ult skill. Give him a dagger and some survivability and you can focus on dealing damage after that.
If you have any other suggetions please let all the DotA
fans know in a comment.
