[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (2022)

Which heroes are most powerful in the mid lane?

Mid is one of the most important roles in DotA 2; the rotations and kills coming from this hero in the laning phase set the pace for the entire game. Often, if a mid can secure a kill on their opponent early, it creates an unstoppable amount of momentum for them that snowballs into easier ganks, pushes, and teamfights for their whole team.

But what hero to pick? Of course, the meta can depend on what skill bracket you’re in, as well as the hero choices of your allies and enemies. This list of ten mid heroes is a good start when deciding with which hero you’ll crush your opponents.

10. Dazzle

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (1)

Dazzle the Shadow Priest, most commonly known for his abilities as a healer and support, has been played for the past year or so as a snowballing lane pusher and mid hero. With three very useful spells and an ultimate ability that lowers his cooldowns, Dazzle can be very difficult to counter for most mid heroes.

What makes Dazzle Great for Mid and Roaming Kills:

  • Constant damage and lane control: Shadow Wave is one of the best spells for early laning, giving Dazzle the ability to heal himself and his creeps while nuking the enemy hero and getting last hits. Melee heroes are almost always lose against Dazzle, taking all the damage from every E he casts. Ranged heroes fare a little better, but he can still man up against them with his Poison Touch spell.

  • Teamfight and map presence: Dazzle is more of a booster to his allies than an assassin himself, lacking any stun or reliable nuke. That being said, he can easily push out mid to give himself room to camp a side lane and let his teammates start the fight, while his damage-over-time and sustain abilities wear his opponents down to a not-so-shallow grave. The new dispel on his Aghanims is very helpful for team fights as well.

Dazzle is Strong Against:

  • Brewmaster

  • Necrophos

  • Ember Spirit

Dazzle is Weak Against:

  • Morphling

  • Outworld Devourer

  • Silencer

9. Gyrocopter

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (4)

With a wide variety of weapons in his arsenal, capable of dishing out magical and physical damage at any range, Gyrocopter is a beast in the mid lane. Gyro is often played as a safe lane carry, but his versatility and pure kill potential definitely earn him a spot in the top ten mid heroes for kills.

What Makes Gyrocopter Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Immense Damage: With four levels in Rocket Barrage, Gyro can potentially dish out 660 magic damage to a single target every 5.5 seconds, and that’s just one of four damage-dealing spells. There are few, if any, heroes with the damage potential of this hero that also scale into the late-game as well as he does.

  • Base Hero: Speaking of late-game, Gyrocopter is one of the best base heroes in the game. His stat gain, 3.6 in Agi and more than 2 in Str and Int, would be more than enough to support this claim. However, he also has a crazy 315 movement speed (great for ganking), with a fast attack rate and a decent 5 armor at level 1. Add his deadly arsenal of abilities, and Gyro has what it takes to not only steamroll his lane but carry his team singlehandedly through the endgame.

Gyrocopter is Strong Against:

  • Most illusion carries - Phantom Lancer, Chaos Knight, Terrorblade

  • Meepo

  • Undying

Gyrocopter is Weak Against:

  • Timbersaw

  • Lifestealer

  • Juggernaut

8. Skywrath Mage

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (7)

Raining heavenly retribution from the skies, Skywrath is a great choice for snuffing the lights out of any squishy hero you face in mid. He is not a difficult hero to play, but still very satisfying when pulling off a combo on an unsuspecting enemy.

What Makes Skywrath Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Utility Belt: Armed with huge damage, a long-range slow, and a damage-amplifying silence, there is no opponent that Skywrath does not have a trick up his sleeve for. He may be a glass cannon, but with his movement speed and spell range, there is no reason for him to take more damage than he can handle.

  • Silent but Deadly: Skywrath’s silence, Ancient Seal, comes in very handy when roaming to the side lanes or generally getting kills. Not only can he shut down escape or protection spells on Weaver, Clinkz, etc., but any magic damage done by his or his team is increased by almost one and a half times during the duration (his entire kit is magic damage- you do the math). Not only is this spell good for ganks and team fights, but a silence and damage amp is also always useful even into the late game, making Skywrath scale surprisingly well for a nuking Intelligence hero.

Skywrath Mage is Strong Against:

  • Alchemist

  • Weaver

  • Storm Spirit

Skywrath Mage is Weak Against:

  • Wraith King

  • Anti-Mage

  • Nyx Assassin

7. Kunkka

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (10)

The only melee Strength hero on this list, Kunkka boasts a variety of AoE and crowd control in addition to his general tankiness. Even played as a support during certain metas, Kunkka’s versatility means he can initiate, gank, and carry all in the same game. The delay time on most of his spells can leave your enemies shaking in their boots and leave you with a satisfying feeling of calm seas.

What Makes Kunkka Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Long Range: The commander-admiral of his team, Kunkka calls the shots and controls the battlefield from afar with his fishing-hook type spell X Marks the Spot, making sure the enemy stays in the perfect area to receive his and his allies more punishing spells. This single-target spell is one of the best ganking tools in the game.

  • Great Wide Sea: Kunkka’s real power in both mid and ganking is the huge area of effect of his spells. Torrent and Ghostship, both castable from very far away, can lock down a whole group of enemies. When he gets in close, or just wants to push in a wave, he can bring out the Tidebringer and clean his enemies with a swing of his cutlass. Abuse these spells along with this hero’s natural tankiness to work aggressively and make plays happen.

Kunkka is Strong Against:

  • Queen of Pain

  • Meepo

  • Broodmother

Kunkka is Weak Against:

  • Outworld Devourer

  • Huskar

  • Silencer

6. Meepo

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (13)

The Geomancer is rather infamous in the DotA 2 scene for his difficulty to play and how easy he is to counter-pick. I recommend picking Meepo in lower brackets where the enemy may not have as much experience playing against him and working with the meta. However, I have seen Meepo win pro games against Earthshaker and other heroes that easily counter him. Play him well, and Meepo is impossible to stop.

What Makes Meepo Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Mobility/Map Presence: Able to level his ultimate, Divided We Stand, early at level 3, Meepo is gifted with the ability of a “global” teleport, Poof - he can bring all of his clones to anywhere one of them goes. Use this to farm a quick level advantage in the jungle, or surprise enemies in the side lanes with a quick gank.

  • The Hardest Carry: Although he gets a fast ultimate, his early game damage can be a bit underwhelming. However, use his multiple Meepos to your advantage and farm up as many attribute items as you can, because the pure damage and lifesteal from his attacks make him one of the scariest late game carries in the game, if not the scariest.

Meepo is Strong Against:

  • Anti-Mage

  • Phantom Lancer

  • Storm Spirit

Meepo is Weak Against:

  • Viper

  • Winter Wyvern

  • Sven

5. Zeus

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (16)

The Lord of Heaven himself bears that title deservedly - Zeus is able to smite foes near and far, visible and hidden, with the highest magic damage in the game. Considering the absolute amount of damage he’s capable of, it is no wonder he possesses an astronomically high win rate.

What Makes Zeus Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Heaven’s Wrath: What Zeus lacks in utility, tank, or mobility, he makes up for with sheer damage, both clean magic nukes and percentage-based damage from his aura. It may take him a second or two to make his way to a side lane, but when he gets there, any enemies in his crosshairs are as good as dead.

  • Global Ultimate: Fitting for the Lord of Heaven, Zeus can claim any kill on the board, even if he wasn’t there to begin with. Often decried as a “kill-stealer”, Thundergod's Wrath can also really come in handy for his teammates that need just a little more damage on the enemy.

Zeus is Strong Against:

  • Slardar

  • Bounty Hunter

  • Necrophos

Zeus is Weak Against:

  • Ursa

  • Viper

  • Pugna

4. Void Spirit

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (19)

With a variety of control and short-range mobility spells that can be used offensively or defensively, Void Spirit is one of the most overpowered heroes in DotA 2. With his ability to jump around the map and take opponents by surprise, Inai the Void Spirit is a hero sure to dominate both the lane and the gameplay that follows.

What Makes Void Spirit Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Slippery Void: Void Spirit is one of those rare heroes that has all three: control, tank, and mobility. Against the diversity of this hero’s gameplay, opponents often find themselves at a loss for answers even when they play perfectly; Void Spirit can escape almost any combo with his Dissimilate and Resonant Pulse

  • Map Presence: With Aether Remnant, Void Spirit can keep his eyes on an area and make sure no opponent passes through unhindered. If a fight happens anywhere near him, he can easily jaunt into position while laying down huge damage with his Astral Step.

Void Spirit is Strong Against:

  • Terrorblade

  • Kunkka

  • Windranger

Void Spirit is Weak Against:

  • Viper

  • Templar Assassin

  • Queen of Pain

3. Tinker

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (22)

What’s not to love about Boush, the Tinker? His ultimate is undoubtedly one of the strongest spells in the game - it refreshes the cooldown of all his other spells, which happen to deal massive single-target and AoE damage.

What Makes Tinker Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Laser: One of the most important parts of laning mid is getting last hits, an impossible feat when blinded completely by Tinker’s Q. The miss chance is also very useful in the late game when dealing with strong right-click heroes. Not to mention, it deals 320 pure damage at max level.

  • Global Teleport: Well, “Global Teleport” is an understatement - with Boots of Travel, it’s a global teleport with a one-second cooldown. This is not a hero with mana problems, as he can teleport back to base whenever he wants. However, the best part about this spell is its usage in combat. He can teleport to a tower near a team fight, get a few kills, and be pushing across the map a few seconds later. This gives Tinker one of the largest kill and farm potentials in mid.

Tinker is Strong Against:

  • Bloodseeker

  • Faceless Void

  • Shadow Fiend

Tinker is Weak Against:

  • Pugna

  • Zeus

  • Storm Spirit

2. Windranger

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (25)

A quick, agile, ranged Intelligence hero, Windranger is rather unique in her skill set that combines her useful spells with her strong physical attack.

With funny quips and one-liners to embarrass her opponents, her play style can be equally infuriating for her enemies as it is rewarding to play her.

What Makes Windranger Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Long Range: Being a hero with a bow, it stands to reason that Windranger can outrange most heroes in the game. With her Powershot, she can farm jungle creeps and secure kills a screen away, all while using her strong and long-ranged attack damage to last hit.

  • Tricks of the Trade: Windranger is another one of those “utility” mids, with a spell for every situation. She can escape carries with Windrun, stun at least one enemy for an absurd length of time with Shackleshot, and nuke waves from far away with Powershot. She can even turn invisible at level 25!

Windranger is Strong Against:

  • Phantom Assassin

  • Huskar

  • Pudge

Windranger is Weak Against:

  • Morphling

  • Zeus

  • Ember Spirit

1. Leshrac

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills (28)

Leshrac is one of the most underused heroes in low skill brackets, and one of the most respected picks at the pro level. With an area of effect slow and stun, as well as both a physical and magical damage aura, Leshrac has the tools to dominate a lane, gank, and push down lanes to the ancient.

What Makes Leshrac Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

  • Eul’s Scepter: Lesh can be hard to play because of the unreliability of his stun, Split Earth. However, that’s not the spell he’s using to crush the lane, preferring more to use the large damage of Lightning Storm and Diabolic Edict. This lets him get the holy grail of items for solo kills: Eul’s Scepter. This allows Leshrac to secure a stun and suffocate the enemy with the rest of his flashy spells. If your team has a lot of stun, you don’t even need this item, and can pass it up in favor of raw damage.

  • Versatility: Whether magical or physical, Leshrac is dealing lots of damage. His Diabolic Edict is one of the best pushing spells in the game, unusual for a nuking Int hero. The long range on all of his spells can be quite infuriating for Leshrac’s opponents as well. All in all, this hero has what it takes to crush any game of DotA 2.

Leshrac is Strong Against:

  • Meepo

  • Broodmother

  • Visage

Leshrac is Weak Against:

  • Pugna

  • Nyx Assassin

  • Clockwerk

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Mid Heroes for Kills

Mid is one of the most important roles in DotA 2; the rotations and kills coming from this hero in the laning phase set the pace for the entire game.. This list of ten mid heroes is a good start when deciding with which hero you’ll crush your opponents.. Dazzle the Shadow Priest, most commonly known for his abilities as a healer and support, has been played for the past year or so as a snowballing lane pusher and mid hero.. With three very useful spells and an ultimate ability that lowers his cooldowns, Dazzle can be very difficult to counter for most mid heroes.. Constant damage and lane control: Shadow Wave is one of the best spells for early laning, giving Dazzle the ability to heal himself and his creeps while nuking the enemy hero and getting last hits.. Gyro is often played as a safe lane carry, but his versatility and pure kill potential definitely earn him a spot in the top ten mid heroes for kills.. What Makes Gyrocopter Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:. What Makes Skywrath Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:. Not only is this spell good for ganks and team fights, but a silence and damage amp is also always useful even into the late game, making Skywrath scale surprisingly well for a nuking Intelligence hero.. What Makes Void Spirit Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:. What Makes Windranger Great for Mid & Roaming Kills:

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Offlane Heroes for Kills

Yes, he is very mana dependent early on.. Few offlaners can shut down a lane as hard as a stacked out Undying.. Under a certain health threshold, Undying’s zombies gain a huge attack speed buff.. Yes, Blink Dagger is very good for an offlane Mars, almost essential.. This mana drain can be invaluable for Clockwerk against enemies that want to spam their spells.. Unlike Mars’s tank ability, it reduces all damage taken from a wide angle, not just hits from basic attacks.. The stacks disappear after 14 seconds, but if a hero continues to stay around Bristleback, there is no way they can outdo the damage they’re receiving, Add in the fact that this is an area of effect ability, and even a strong trilane can seem weak against him.. There are few heroes in the game that have basic abilities as strong as the Axe’s.. Not a frontliner or carry by any means, Dark Seer still requires tanking items such as Crimson Guard and Pipe in order to appropriately get his hands dirty.. Rather useless early game, this spell becomes quite the game changer when the enemy carry has a few damage items.. What really makes Tidehunter such a good offlaner is his ability to, well, live as long as possible.. Faith_bian's Offlane Underlord. Topping the leaderboard of “Strongest Hero”, Centaur Warrunner has almost 3000 hit points at level 25 without any items.. He has no tank abilities and no basic movement abilities.

Read to know which Mid heroes are in meta and will win you more games.

Middle lane heroes control the game in many different ways.. Usually, Position 2 has the highest XP in the game, resulting in higher levels compared to other heroes which gives them the potential to change the picture of the game in the early phases.. Every major patch has some effect on the heroes which are popular in the middle lane, the current patch also has some terrific heroes which can help you win and raise your MMR.. The Sleight of Fist also damages the enemy but it is noteworthy that it has a very low damage output in the early stages of the game and is mainly used as a defensive ability.. This has made OD a really great hero in the early game and also allows him to scale even better in the late game.. The hero comes on really fast in the game and can contribute a lot in small fights which increases the team’s winning probability.. The hero farms really fast and can clear waves and ancients extremely quickly, giving her items like Desolator and Blink Dagger very early in the game.. The hero has a balanced lane presence and good mobility and escape to help in team fights and push different lanes.

Not making much progress in ranked? These are the best Dota 2 heroes to play in competitive matches right now based on the game's ever-changing meta

There are certain heroes that are particularly strong in the current meta, but it’s not enough just to pick meta heroes; you have to know when and why these heroes are good.. We’ve put together a list of the best Dota 2 heroes for each position, alongside a few alternatives.. Shadow Walk (E): Bounty Hunter becomes invisible and gains the ability to move through other units until he attacks or uses an ability.. Like Warlock, Bounty Hunter’s Aghanim’s Shard is what makes him such a great pick in the current patch.. Depending on the situation, it’s sometimes worth it to skill Shadow Walk first, and use it to get into position to steal the enemies’ bounty runes.. Hoof Stomp (Q): Slams the ground, stunning and damaging nearby enemy units.. You can also kill the enemy mid laner with it with the help of your supports, or solo if you get a good rune.. Healing Ward (W): Summons a Healing Ward which heals all nearby allied units, based on their max health.. Omnislash (R): Juggernaut leaps towards the target enemy units, and then slashes the target and other nearby enemy units at an increased attack rate.. Play around your ultimate; it’s very strong.

Ever since 7.27 the meta has been defined quite well and the best mid lane heroes all share the same characteristics. They are not greedy heroes that can create more space than they take so...

The fire spirit is one of the better mid lane heroes in this patch because he has a strong laning phase and spikes during the mid game.. Sitting at a 51.7% win rate he is often one of the go-to heroes of high MMR players because of his simple laning phase and high damage output throughout all the stages of the game..

[Top 10] Dota 2 Best Carry Heroes That Wreck Hard

Melee heroes - Gyrocopter lacks defensive spells, making him weak against powerful melee heroes that can close the gap.. High raw damage output Can slow enemies on the run Insane attack range Farms fast with shrapnel Can kite melee heroes with his headshot. Slow heroes - Shrapnel is a powerful aoe slow that can make naturally slow heroes move at a snail's pace.. Heroes without escapes - Slark can easily lock down and kill any hero that's unable to free themselves from his Pounce.. Heroes with escapes - Lone Druid’s bear has a chance to root with each hit, making him naturally strong at locking down elusive heroes.. Most ranged heroes - Her ultimate lets her instantly teleport to any enemy on the map, countering many heroes that rely on positioning.. Can easily time walk between creep camps Great team fight Can also solo gank with Chronosphere Can lock down any hero in the game His Time Walk makes him hard to burst. Tanky heroes - If a hero has too big of a health pool, Faceless Void will have trouble killing them in the Chronosphere.. Heroes that easily clear illusions - If the enemies can quickly kill his illusions, Terrorblade can be focused down and killed.. Intelligence heroes - Anti-Mage’s Mana Break is more effective against heroes that rely on their mana.. Heroes with hard disables - Void’s Counter Spell is ineffective against heroes such as Legion Commander and Faceless Void.. This massive burst of damage can occasionally kill an enemy hero one hit.. Illusion heroes - Phantom Assassin can often get overrun by illusion heroes.

This makes it easy for new players to farm easily.. Item suggestions and skill selection : Luna is an aggressive farming carry.. Heroes that can counter Luna : Luna is a high damage agility hero, Strength heroes like Axe, Centaur, Bristleback can be a good counter against Luna.. Heroes that can counter Sniper : Since Sniper is particularly squishy, heroes that can deal heavy damage over a short time can counter Sniper effectively.. Heroes that can counter Viper : There are very few heroes known to counter Viper in the early game.. The third ability of Axe – Counter Helix deals pure damage to enemies who attacks Axe.. Item suggestion and skill selection: Bristleback is a very easy hero to play.. Heroes who counter Lich : Heroes with high attack damage like Phantom Assassin and Juggernaut are good against the lich.. Item suggestion and skill selection : Jakiro is very easy to play with a high potential to wreak serious damage over enemies in the early game..

The top 10 most popular Dota 2 heroes in the mid lane during 7.11. We will have a look at some of the best picks in the meta, and learn how to play or counter them.

A triple-raze requires a skilled player and a suitable opponent, but the potential damage during the lane phase is massive, particularly if SF gained a level advantage.. All heroes with a good auto-attack animation and damage can profit from these changes, but Shadow Fiend excels in this job thanks to Necromastery, which grants a bonus damage based on the number of units killed.. Heroes with a high pick rate tend to have a lower win rate because even players without experience pick them.. This is an issue for Shadow Fiend as the hero demands an extensive practice in last-hitting (35-41 damage at level one) and using Shadowraze.. Outworld Devourer has always been considered a mid dominator as not many heroes can lane against him, and he can just deny their experience with a correct use of Astral imprisonment.. OD can’t level up Arcane Orb in the earlier levels, and without it his attack damage is really low (40‒55 at level 1).. Sniper biggest issue is the mid game due to OD’s pure damage, but in the late game the former will have the upper hand again if properly farmed and with a BKB.. OD possesses a huge mana pool, so the damage inflicted by Mana Burn must not be undervalued, and in the late game it may delete more than a half of his health pool.. Zeus is not the best hero you can pick in the mid lane, neither he is the solution that will work against everyone, but he is able to adapt to most opponents and get his farm.. Queen of Pain’s popularity and win rate rise at higher ranks as she requires an expert player to make use of her high mobility and burst damage.. The mobility and burst damage provided by her abilities make her a great ganker since the early game, but in most cases I suggest to wait level six prior attempting anything.

We break down the top 5 heroes for both the mid and safe lane with plenty of advice and tips to help you get that sweet MMR.

No matter how good a given hero is, if you can’t play them, it’s probably not a good idea to pick them.. As a result, you will become the strongest hero on the map during the mid-game, which is where you need to make space for your carry.. The second hero on our best mid heroes is Bloodseeker.. Some people might say that this hero can be played as a carry too, which is true.. That’s due to the fact that the hero benefits a lot whenever there are other heroes running on low HP.. You can even try to do some solo kills, but in most cases, it’s not really going to be worth it, unless it’s on the enemy mid or safe lane hero.. This means that you need to be really careful when you’re playing with this hero because you can get three-shot by a farmed carry.. As a result, the hero is capable of getting six slots by the 25th-minute mark, which means only one thing – there is no way for the enemy team to kill him, regardless of how hard they try.. At the same time, Sniper can be one of the worst heroes in the game if he gets ganked all the time because he just can’t survive.. As long as she manages to get a good start, this hero is just unkillable once she gets all of her items.. If you get a good start with LD, which is not that hard because the hero is a really strong laner, you can get that Radiance really soon.. Don’t forget that you will be the strongest hero on the map, so it will be really hard for the enemies to fight into you.. As a result, while the enemy carry will be farming only one lane, you can farm the lane, as well as all jungle camps.. Nevertheless, if there are a lot of intelligence heroes and no counters, this can be one of the best picks in the game.. It doesn’t matter how good a certain hero is in the current meta if you can’t play with him.

The top 10 most popular Dota 2 heroes in the mid lane during 7.16. We will have a look at some of the best picks in the meta, and learn how to play or counter them.

Extra attack range moved from level 20 to 25.. She is able to inflict a considerable amount of magic damage, but can turn into a physical damage dealer in the late game with the right items and farm.. She has three nukes, and Laguna Blade inflicts 850 magic damage (pure with the Aghanim’s Scepter) which combined with her dps (Fiery Soul grants up to 255 attack speed - 330 with the talent) can wipe out most opponents in a few seconds.. Lightning Bolt damage and cast range increased.. A nerf to his lane phase as most players max out this skill and literally spam it to farm and harass the opponent, using Clarity potions for mana.

Climb the ranks with these top 10 picks of agility heroes. Each of them is worth the time investment to master for the long term.

While Shadow Fiend helps you learn how to farm, Slark can teach you how to assassinate enemy heroes.. Slark’s other abilities include means to escape if he finds himself in a disadvantageous matchup or surrounded.. Unfortunately, she’s not designed to secure kills so always works with other allied core laners.. These have to be timed correctly and they are depleted easily.. Ember Spirit has one of the most devastating wide-ranged attack combos out of all Agility heroes.. Naga Siren – Early game Support and late game Carry. However, she can counter the enemy Roaming Support if they are ganked, given her great capabilities in duels.. Sun Wukong, the Monkey King – Roaming Support

You don’t have to be a core to change the game.

She remains one of the most powerful level-two heroes in the game thanks to her dual disables: Crystal Nova slows and nukes, Frostbite roots and does damage-over-time.. No matter how she fares in the competitive scene, the hero’s ease of use will always make her a viable option in pub games, and it shows in how her win rate remains consistently positive no matter the meta.. Her babysitting skills are subpar due to her low attack range and lack of nuke damage.. She gets rather tanky later into the game, thanks to her nature as an agility hero that provides armor and a decent strength gain.. Wave of Terror doesn’t deal much damage but makes up for it with its armor decrease, and its high cast range provides valuable vision.. Positioning skills that can affect both allies and enemies are few and far between in this game.. Image via ValvePhoenix is one of the best teamfight heroes in the game even from position five.. While he does possess one of the best harassing skills with Fire Spirit, which slows enemy attack speed, its high cooldown and small AOE makes it unreliable.. Many support heroes would kill for the ability to turn their opponents attention onto them rather than their cores, and a giant, fiery egg accomplishes just that.. Image via ValveRubick is one of the most fun heroes in the game.. It’s great for securing ranged creeps, and reduces hero damage to boot, allowing you to trade hits constantly.. He’s not quite as plug-and-play or reliable as some of the other heroes in this list, but there’s no other support hero that can turn the tides quite like Rubick.

A hero’s win rate across all skill brackets may seem like an irrelevant statistic. But when the difference between two heroes is larger than 10%, you can pretty much be certain that one of those heroes is much stronger than the other in the current meta. These are the top 10 highest win rate heroes

These are the top 10 highest win rate heroes of Dota 2 patch 7.30d.. The hero’s total attribute increase per level is 7.7, which is probably one of the highest in the game.. At only level 3, the combination of Arcane Curse (level 1) and Glaives of Wisdom (level 2) makes him a very annoying foe to play against in lane.. The hero now deals 150% critical damage when the ability is level 1 and 270% damage when it is level 4.. The reason why Enigma’s win rate is high in patch 7.30d has a lot to do with his ability to farm really fast, get a Blink Dagger, and then secure kills for his team during fights.. If the game goes late enough (30+ minutes), Enigma becomes a scary hero that can win team fights almost on his own.. The hero’s laning phase got buffed by Dota 2 patch 7.30d, as well as the previous 2 patches: 7.30c and 7.30.. During the laning phase, with a few cheap items you can make this hero very hard to kill and extremely capable to harass an enemy carry.. Necrophos’ great strengths are his Death Pulse, which creates a 400+ HP difference between himself and his opponent at level 4, as well as his Heartstopper Aura, which allows him to get a lot of HP and mana regen for every kill in addition to harming anyone in an 800 radius.. She can farm really fast, withstand a lot of damage in team fights, and tends to have a good laning phase because of her abilities and overall attribute increase per level (8.9!
