Hex is 3.5 and stun is 2. The moment lion stuns he can be directly countered by an ult and burned down. Or if Lion casts his ult first he would have no way to hex or stun him. Ive played Silencer a lot when he had his last word. Now all i can say is that the new silencer can get chained by several heroes which was not the case now.
And if a support Lion gets a sheep stick, he still wont survive against a Silencer with a sheepstick.

No more bad words to Silencer anymore. With his new Last word, he can now silence people who think Nortom suck (Nortom just make them shut up). lol

I had a game when I was Silencer in mid vs Akasha. I can harass her easily with combination of 1st+2nd+3rd skill. Use 3rd skill first. When she is silenced, use 1st skill. When 1st&3rd is in cooldown, I orb walk her. Pwned her easily. Not to mention she is paper.

Been going through some replays and I still think Silencer is abit OP. He is a strong mid laner against most heroes but he is some what easy to kill. He either rapes hard or sucks badly. I though with all the upgrades to him his impact on the would be godly but 1 hero I have seen much of is Sven and with Magnataur it is an easy win if the combo works well.

585 By Ghost 2013-01-04


argument falls apart when Lion could chain silencer to death with simple as pie animation cancelling.

and hex has a 4 second duration, sheep stick + impale is greater than 4 seconds, sex crime is an instant finisher and silence no longer matters.

early game it might help, late game silencer was just a little bit of meat that might be useful provided he hit R before he got blink stunned to death.

584 By Hyperion1O1 2013-01-03

Nope, Silencer was never a hero built for survival but rather he was built to break combinations.

Old Word was very powerful against heroes with spammable skills or the ones that relied on fast combos like Lion or Lina. It therefore was nearly useless versus an Earthshaker or Enigma since they only need to cast 1 skill to decide the clash.

New Word allows Silencer to harass enemy opponents without relying on the unreliable CotS. He can now silence at will and doesnt rely on his GS.

583 By Burnedcat 2013-01-03

I dont agree at all, Last word used to be Silencers trademark and actually only survival skill. Like if lion stuns him, he cant chain his skills effectively. Now, stun, parry, etc. Same to all chain nuke heroes like earthshaker, pudge, etc. He cant break combos effectively anymore.

582 By lolopo 2012-11-19

@hyperion totally agree with you... one just needs to max out the lst word fist and get one lvl of the orb early game then he's good to go...

581 By Hyperion1O1 2012-11-17

Silencer turned from a walking aura to a beastly laner.

Rapes anyone mid with the new Last Word.
Loses some aura power in clashes by 20-30% but makes up for it with longer Global Silence Duration.

The important thing to note is HE NOW RAPES ANYONE MID.

Spammers? Max Last Word
Nukers? Max Last Word

Just max Last Word and he's good to go.

New Silencer Buffs are Awesome! More tankyness, more int steal. RAWCH!

579 By Greyinvoker 2012-06-10

I consider myself a really good silencer player, hes my favorite hero and Ive played him for 2 years regurarly now. Ive also watched lots of dota games where silencer was played support and carry/hard carry: Ive tried a lot of orb walkers and silencer=best orb walker. High range and speed. His As is good, highest agi gain of all int heroes if people check it right (few people now this).

578 By silentzero 2012-06-04

Don't kid yourself into thinking that it was our fault. You dug yourself your own grave. Stop whining and leave the site already

577 By KNiteman 2012-06-04

@587, Woah talk about prediction. How did you know neimi would be post 589, divine luck or utter stupidity - 586, 6 is the upright 9.

576 By neimi 2012-06-04

thats what pt (str), wand, wraith band, BKB, manta are for...

before you say anything about blink its there between BKB and manta.

how does he have less survivability than troll?
like 150 or 200 hp less? at least he can kill the gankers. unlike a certain failure of a hero who can only die to a gank

575 By neimi 2012-06-04

no items taken into consideration: SF has the highest physical dmg.

so what if he has 10 less dmg than most heros... he has a 72+ dmg without any items...

how do you think ppl get promoted on this site??

you be good, contribute to the site, ask for a promotion, if the mods and community of DS view you as qualified, then you will be promoted.

574 By KNiteman 2012-06-04

@585, that post refer to you saying he has low base damage. That is true to balance, but as of the 2.9 agi your statement is irrelevant. And if i remember correctly SF can farm/rush a BKB with ease and the agi gain is a nice passive armor increase to his survival. PT str, Ogre axe->BKB, wand are enough survival for him.

573 By KNiteman 2012-06-04

If I remember correctly, SF got quite a high AGI gain buff - 2.9 I think, thats in the region of SA. Einsteins theory of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results. In EIOX case that theory would be called stupidity like trolling and getting banned and never learning since you are a hot shot dota player in your world.

572 By neimi 2012-06-04

meh, believe what you want.

your an idiot and everyone on this site knows that your an idiot.

im through tring to convince you of anything.
god, i wish i asked for a promotion long ago.....
then maybe i could of done something about you, you fail troll...

im sure no one is this stupid. you have to be trolling me...

confirmation biased noob...

571 By neimi 2012-06-04

the you im refering to is EIOX. which is you u retard. why are you laughing at that?

dunno whats wrong with this guy...

570 By neimi 2012-06-04

its EIOX logic.

the question doesnt make sense to us.
but it makes sense to you.

classic fail EIOX logic...

569 By KNiteman 2012-06-04

How does a creep with 1000 damage compare to SF 900 AoE + Relic++ passive in terms of being overrated?
