Before getting to know the details of how to play Leshrac, we must understand and understand the parameters of Leshras to be able to use this hero more effectively.

It is not an exaggeration to say that Leshrac is one of the heroes that need to be remade in DOTA 2 because it seems that “antelope” is no longer suitable for the current metagame. As support, Leshrac’s stun skill is quite difficult to use because the player has to line up the skill, in addition, being in a support position and unable to farm items for tanking abilities makes Leshrac’s Ultimate difficult can deal lots of damage in teamfights.

In the mid lane, Leshrac can be farmed, but the pure skillset of AOE damage also causes him to push the creeps quite high, which makes it easy to gank. In the off-lane position, Leshrac is also quite fragile and difficult to escape when caught odd. However, if you know how to play, Leshrac can still create a nightmare for the enemy team.

The first direction is to maximize the skills of Split Earth and Diabolic Edict first to both stun and support the team and can push the tower early. Ultimate only increases at levels after Leshrac’s mana pool is high and has a small tanking ability.

The second way to better “lane” with Lightning Storm and Split Earth. Split Earth’s ability to cause a mini slow will make it easier for you to place Split Earth. In addition, you can also increase only one Split Earth point to stun and increase steadily on Diabolic Edict, Lightning Storm.
