Akasha is one of the many souls claimed by the blade, Frostmourne. Raised to serve the Lich King as a Banshee, she desired to become pure substance once more. Driving deep into the forests, she was able to subdue and possess a Succubus minion. Rightly bearing the title, Queen of Pain, she enjoys nothing more than inflicting massive damage on her foes, using both the poisonous strikes of her succubus host and the vicious howls retained from her Banshee nature. Akasha breaks her enemies' eardrums with torturing screams, some so loud they manifest into powerful waves that ripple across the lands, shattering all in their wake.

So QoP is a succubus, but why does she have such big "elf like" ears? Is she a rare breed of succubus that bred with elves to get those ears? Also, anybody ever noticed she has no hands, then how exactly would she throw the poison dagger of Shadow Strike? Are those blades where her hands are the daggers that are made of her flesh like a hardened type of skin?

i wouldnt say BKB is prioritised over linken on her. it depends on the enemy heros.
facing an ES means a definite BKB tho. his fissure activates linkens, u take the dmg, and u get stunned. so its kinda useless against him.

286 By Hyperion1O1 2012-07-16

Reasons why BKB is core:

Magic Immunity against most spells.

In a serious match, you would have to deal with a buttload of spells that damage and disable. BKB helps you avoid most of that since QoP tends to get focused a lot. Linken's is good but only against single target spells, meaning ES with a dagger can blink in and stun you while your Linken's is waiting for a Hex or a Finger.

Basically, Bkb is most of the time a core and Linken's a situational item.

285 By KNiteman 2012-07-16

I wouldn't say BKB is a core on her. Agha yes because of the 40s cooldown is just great. Boots of Speed work just as well on her. I think Linken is a a good item that can be considered a core with Agha as follow-up-rush or just going Guinsoo before the two works.

Shadow Strike is nice for early game harassing. If find bottle-crow great for her and Scepter rush is quite hectic if you wanna finish the game quick.

282 By ->F3lix<-/ 2011-02-18


Because those many people buy tp scrolls to counter...

281 By Lukiose 2011-02-18

Many people say shadow strike is useless. These people have never seen a hero so dangerously close to death try to run to the fountain and scream F**K!!! as they get pwned by the poison damage.

280 By Ne0aly 2011-02-17

I would rather them just be different circumstances.

279 By The Guardian Angel 2011-02-17

Different tactics. Different players. Different skill builds.

278 By nooblet_pwner 2011-01-08

I hope you're just trying to troll... china's vigoss?
i see 3 divine rapier's important, like yamateh's qop.

277 By CandyCore.xX 2011-01-08

akasha's shadow strike doesn't have to be maxed. look at china's akasha pro player vigoss. he only learns shadow strike once before lvl 10

276 By dreeead 2010-12-20

How about getting arcane boots mid game and sell it at late game to buy BoT ?
I see aghanims/bloodstone as a priority in this hero and BoT isn't easy to buy with this items.

275 By STGDS 2010-11-29

i hate when i get ruptured on any type of blink heros, riki, am, akash, etc...

bottle is great on her :)

274 By ragnadiktus 2010-11-27 blink isnt stopped by rupture...Hmm..well not everyone knows that. So if the akasha user doesnt know that then...Hahaha.

:-bd bloodrage

273 By silentzero 2010-11-27

Blink temporarily makes you invulnerable as you move, so technically it's a perfect escape mechanism against rupture although bloodrage would certainly wtfpwn and ruin her.

272 By ragnadiktus 2010-11-27

@270 Bloodseeker :D
Rupture will make akasha think twice b4 blinking

@271 I think cuz akasha is one of those heroes called complete heroes cuz of having 2 nukes, an initiate/escape, and a slow. :D

271 By dotaplayer91 2010-11-27

why many ppl pick akasha in competition?izit because akasha is a carry or because of others reason??

270 By kenz2009 2010-11-21

what hero/item could i use against Akasha?
cuz one of my friend uses it a lot and pwns us XD

269 By The Guardian Angel 2010-09-12

The slow is useful till late game but te higher damage is more useful early. Plus, scream can be maxed out later and with the higher mana pool, you can unleash your deadly combos more than once. I dont think you can do 3 spells so early.
