Considered to be an exceptionally filthy and despicable specimen by all who encounter him, including his fellow zombies, Dirge has wandered in from the wastes outside to serve the Lich King in hopes of finally obtaining a place of acceptance amongst the Undead masses. While he is still considered to be unpleasant as ever by the rest of the Scourge, his horrifying abilities, which include raising self-replicating lesser ghouls and spreading vile, rapidly communicable plague throughout the enemy ranks, are unquestionably powerful and may just give the Scourge the edge they need to complete their unholy conquest once and for all.

If Dirge has a Radiance & then he casts Tombstone,does the zombies Burn Damage ??

593 By xxkidrauhlxx 2012-02-18

@migrees Thank you for the information...

592 By migrees 2012-02-18

@xxkidrauhlxx 500 when there are 20 or more units around. Does 25 damage to all units it "draws" power from

591 By lolopo 2012-02-17

Dirge is a mana-lvl dependent caster-tank in the game, much more like necrolyte but he does not need too much items.

His core items could be like this
Necrobook/meka(other utiliy items)
Urn is a good choice(if no else will get it)
He is a priority in laning(he needs to get lveled up/farmed early game)
Mid game he does not need to farm creeps(give it to carry) it will just come from tower kills or victory in clashes.

590 By xxkidrauhlxx 2012-02-17

Does Soul Rip Lv4 damage the enemy units by 25 or 500 ??

589 By marcingua 2011-11-26

I wonder if the zombies summoned by the Tombstone can be affected by plaque although they cant even control,and if they die would there be any benefits such as heal on Mr.Dierge?

588 By bulletformyvalentine 2011-09-14

My build

Arcane Boots
2 Bracers
Disassemble Arcane boots and make Bloodstone so that you can spam Decay
Radiance or HOT if the game is prolonged

If you go play a game of Undying, you're gonna wish you had mana. 5 sec cd + 10 sec cd for 130 manacost skills is quite a bit of mana.

586 By stormofheaven 2011-05-17

Does Dirge have a bug? I played with him yesterday and I got Scepter for fun. THe tooltip didn't change and I still had the yellow text on the bottom.

585 By Noo=b 2011-02-04

584 By Noo=b 2011-02-04

580 By Big Wes 2011-01-09

So soul rip can heal any unit more than once when cast?? And damages for the same amount?

579 By Pro-con 2011-01-01

Early Dirge needs mana and mana regen. So start off with Int stat items early and a tangoos or salve. go bot or top and get your boots and sobi's.

- Phase
- 2x Null
- Sole Ring
- Urn

- Vlads
- Shiva's (Sell Nulls)
- Radiance (Sell Nulls)

- S&Y (Soz Love S&Y. Situational)(Sell Sole Ring)
- Heart (Sell Urn)


578 By stormofheaven 2011-01-01

I play Dirge as a Tank.
Boots>PT or phase (Dependent on opponents)
In between there you can get a another mana regen. But usually I find RoB good enough as it makes up for his weakness.(Low armour and mana gain)
Do not undestimate Dirge as a early game ganker. Level 3 Toomstone and soul rip can easily net you multi kills in early game, thereby giving you a vanguard by level 7-8.
