Hi, My name is Blinks, and this is how you
play Storm Spirit.
Storm spirit is a ranged intelligence hero,
that excels at picking off out-of-position
enemy heroes. His Q is a static AoE Mine.
His W is a leashing disable. His passive E
gives him extra damage and snare after casting
spells, and his ULTIMATE is a self-teleporting
Storm Spirit is a great mid-hero, and is a
strong pick against just about any enemy mid.
His Q combo’d with his passive let him clear
creep waves quickly, and his W can secure
kills on enemies that get out of position.
Don’t forget to cast attack between spell-casts
to maximize damage from your passive.
Storm Spirit really shines in the mid-game.
Comboing his Ultimate and W is a great for
picking off fleeing heroes, and once you hit
about 10 bloodstone charges, you will virtually
never run out of mana. Remember that while
you are great at catching enemy heroes, you
are very squishy, and can easily be killed
if stunned or silenced.
In the late game, try to wait for your team
to initiate before going in on a fight. You
absolutely CANNOT initiate with your ultimate
until you have a bkb, and even then it can
be risky. When team fighting, use your ball
lightning to proc your passive as often as
possible, as this will give your attacks extra
damage and an aoe. This technique is one of
the things that separates good Storm Spirits
from bad ones, and can be devastating if used
When leveling Storm spirit, put your first
point into Q, your second point into E, and
then max R>W>E>Q. For Items, try to
get a bottle before the two minute mark, and
then grab a wand and mana boots. Your first
big item is Bloodstone. Do NOT buy an energy
booster while building it. Instead, buy every
part but the energy booster, and then right
click your boots to disassemble them and use
that energy booster to complete bloodstone.
If you have a lot of money, you can build
travel boots, but otherwise build power treads
instead. Late-game you NEED to have a bkb
to be effective. Other good items are Linken’s
Sphere, Orchid Malevolance, or a Scythe of
