Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Magnus

  • Skewer destroys trees which can be useful against certain heroes.
  • When fighting close to pillars and cliffs, consider Skewering opponents on them.
  • Magnus has huge base damage that is further amplified by Empower. Use to win the lane last hit wise.
  • When an opponent is close to your tower, consider making Shockwave into Skewer play.
  • Ask your teammates to make stacks for you as you can clear them with ease once Empower is maxed out.
  • Consider turning during Reverse Polarity animation to be able to Skewer stunned units towards allies right away.
  • Once you have Blink Dagger, make use of it immediately before opponents are able to scout it.
  • Avoid showing yourself at the start of the fight. Wait for opponents to clump up and do your combo.
  • Pick up Aghanims Shard later in the game to boost your farming speed, damage output, and control.
