Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Queen of Pain

  • Use Scream of Pain to secure ranged creeps and hit opponents at the same time.
  • Avoid overinvesting points in Shadow Strike. It will make your farming and midgame fights hard.
  • When in trouble, blink into fog, into treelines or over cliffs.
  • Look around for opportunities to gank once you have Sonic Wave and control runes.
  • Blink or position yourself in such a way that you land a multi-hero Sonic Wave in the fights.
  • When not much is happening, push out the sidelines.
  • Pick up Aghanim`s Shard around minute 15 as it provides silence and extra damage. Using it on creep waves also gives you instant wave clear when paired with Scream of Pain.
  • Aghanims scepter is very strong in teamfights. Try to get it at an early timing.
