Mana Cost: 140/155/160/165

Comment: Everyone need this skill for fast attack, escaping, and chasing. Focus on this one.
Blasts a target with magical energy, dealing damage and disabling the target based on the Morphling's dominant attribute between Agility and Strength.
Level 1 - 20 + 0.25x - 0.5x Agility in damage and stuns the target 0.25 - 0.75 seconds and knocks back slightly.

If you have 50% more strength than agility, it deals the maximum of the stun and the minimum of the damage.
Knocks the target back 100 - 300 units.

Cooldown: 20 Seconds
Comment: A good damage-push skill. Very powerful once you get Agility-increasing items.
The Morphling edits his physical being to fit the circumstances. He can, at will, lose some strength and gain agility, or vice versa. The process is reversible.

Level 2 - 4 points per second.
Level 3 - 6 points per second.
Level 4 - 8 points per second.
Mana Cost: 0
Cooldown: 1/1/0.75/0.5 seconds
Comment: Only useful if planning for high damage or high HP. Optional for my opinion.
The Morphling has the unique ability to replicate any target friendly or enemy hero. Although it only deals 50% damage, the hero can morph into his replication, instantly taking its position.

When approaching the battlefield, make sure you have the Lesser clarity potions and Flasks of Sapphire water. Buy some Ring of Health/Ring of Regeneration for additional protection and if you have enough cash, get the Ring of Bassilus to maintain safety.
When fighting with the creeps, stay away from ranged units and casters. They might attack you or cast spells on you. Only use Waveform when a creep or two is/are about to die or when a hero is near you.
Go for the kill if:
- The HP of an enemy hero is less than 20%
- Make sure the enemy has lost most of its mana, then you can kill without any people to stop you, except for the towers.
After earning enough cash, get 2 Wraith Bands and Null Talismans to make you more useful. Then get these items in order for the early game(Lasts 10-15 minuites):
- Glove of Haste - Power Threads
- Ultimate orb
