Warning: The strategies, item build, and other ideas are either taught or a form of experiment for me. Personally, i am not good at manipulating melee heroes but this is one of the heroes i would go for when the team needs some support. Have fun reading the guide as i had making it! Thanks personally to Necridus and the team for showing me how a good Ogre Magi must be used.

Skill Build

Early Game:

Items: The items in the item list are the items you'll probably see when the game ends or at the later part of the game.

At the start or early parts of the game, these are the items you'll be needing.

Low golds to start: View Details for Animal CourierView Details for Ancient Tango of EssifationView Details for BracerView Details for Stout ShieldView Details for Boots of SpeedView Details for Ring of Regeneration

Enough golds: View Details for Animal CourierView Details for Ancient Tango of EssifationView Details for Stout ShieldView Details for Ring of Health

See the trend? this will lead to my strategy.

Strategy: My key for playing Ogre Magi is not by spell spamming since the spells have long cooldown, he has low mana to start with, and he only got one spell that deals most of the damage. So, SURVIVABILITY is my strategy at the early part of the game.

If you have another player fighting with you in a single lane, try working with him/her with respect to the item's you'll be getting and have some strategy fighting the opposing heroes so you'll have better chance of winning.

It will be better if you have another disabler, stunner or nuker fighting with you in a lane.

Try to control using your Fireblast and cast it first after you have your Multi Cast. This is why i needed those stats early on.

Tips: If you are eager to have a first kill, try spamming Fireblast, after getting Multi Cast, and hit him/her as much as you can and have some clarities or try getting at least a View Details for Ring of Basilius or View Details for Null Talisman so you'll have enough mana for another round. By then, if lucky enough, you'll double cast Fireblast and get the kill.

332 By FredtheCactus 2012-02-10

..this is a terrible guide.

331 By Padayappa 2011-12-18

Seriously Radiance? -.- .
Aghanims doesnt do anyting to his ulti so no point. 3.2 str gain doesnt rlly need tank items like vanguard. Ignite is its best early game. Fireblast + Ignite at level 9 ( lvl 4 fire blast + lvl 4 ignite + lvl 1 multi-Cast ) can be a sure kill if Multi - Cast activates or you use fire blast twice or thrice.

330 By war3dota 2011-10-29

my build

arcane boots
shivas guard

329 By xerosharshar 2011-07-27

323 By Epic_Blood_Lust 2010-10-30

Its crazy he has a higher str gain than int gain?

322 By blawa2 2010-09-08


321 By Damdidam 2010-09-08

aghanims? this guide is old but can you still use aghanims for him?

320 By BGizzel 2010-09-07

and he is not good for tanking... like ishkafel he needs someone to be in front of him.

319 By BGizzel 2010-09-07

yea nice guide but its a litle bit old.

max ur first skil,ulti at lvl 6, and max stats until 2ndlvl ulti.

Go mid, with 4 ironbranch 53gold and 2 healing. Make a persev as fast as u can and ownage for ur team. trust me. the build depends and the heres u are facing, but a blodstone, hex, linken, its always so nice.

PLAY IT RIGHT, and u can beat anyone.
