Dota 2 - Vengeful Spirit Build Guide

Even the most contented Skywrath is an ill-tempered creature, naturally inclined to seek revenge for the slightest insult. But Vengeful Spirit is the essence of vengeance. Once a proud and savage Skywrath scion, Shendelzare was first in succession for the Ghastly Eyrie until a sister's treachery robbed her of her birthright. Snared in an assassin's net, Shendelzare tore free only at the cost of her wings, limping away in the ultimate humiliation: On foot. With her wings broken, she knew the Skywrath would never accept her as ruler; and in the highest roost of the Eyrie, inaccessible except by winged flight, her sister was untouchable. Unwilling to live as a flightless cripple, and desiring revenge far more than earthly power, the fallen princess drove a bargain with the goddess Scree'auk: She surrendered her broken body for an imperishable form of spirit energy, driven by vengeance, capable of doing great damage in the material plane. She may spend eternity flightless, but she will have her revenge.

Vengeful spirit is a supportive hero. She can helps team with her stun, swap, +damage and -armor. All of her abilities are supportive.

As a utility hero she have the job to buy wards and also courier. As an initiator she has the job to initiate a teamfight. That is to kidnap 1 hero and make that hero die before the teamfight start and make teamfight become a 4 vs 5.

Why Magic Missile should be maxed first? This is your main skill, you need it to stun your enemy to start the teamfight. You also can use this skill for defensive purpuse so that you can save a life.

Why you take 1 Lv of Vengeance aura in Lv 2? To helps you and partner in lane for easier last hits and harassing.

Why Wave of Terror should be maxed before Vengeance Aura? -Armor will be very useful for ganking in the early-mid game. The armor reduction will make the enemy become so much more squishy.

And +Damage aura will be reching its maximum potential in late game because everyone will have their damage maxed. And +36 % will be a big difference in late game. So Wave of Terror first, and Vengeance Aura after that.

Early game
As a utility hero, you may need to buy courier and also wards. Don't worry about your gold become less and you won't be able to buy the luxury item because you don't need that much golds to become useful for your team.

Usually, you are become a lane support so you need to protect your partner from any harm that can happen in your lane. If they trying to kill your partner, you should stun the enemy immediately.

Beware of enemy's attempt to gank your team. If someone is missing, you need to be careful by retreat to your tower immediately.
You can also use Wave of terror to reveal the fogged maps and reveal if there is an enemy hiding in the fog.

Mid Game 
You are one of the best ganker in dota. You have the combo Swap + Stun that will restrict the movement of the enemy. Swap + stun makes your team get the posititonal advantage over the enemy. It will be difficult for your opponent.

You need to coordinate a gank with your friends, and gank as much as you can. The more your team get the kills, the more chance your team will win the match.

So if you want to initiate in a gank, what you need to do is:

1. Talk with your teammates about who is the target. You should focus fire on 1 hero in a gank, because if you don't communicate well you may attack the A person and your teammates attack the B person, and that is a bad gank and can lead to failure on getting the kill.

2. Prepare the items needed in the gank:
a. Use Smoke of Deceit to be invisible from the Ward
b. Prepare a Dust, a Sentry Ward, or a Gem if you will gank an invisible hero like Rikimaru, Clinkz, or Nyx Assassin

Get ready to gank

3. Use Swap
4, Use Stun
5. Use he Wave of Terror
6. Right click until your target dies

Late Game

After that all your friends can easily kill that 1 person and dominate the teamfight. It will be a big advantages if you can do this perfectly and make a 5 vs 4 teamfight to happen. 1 person does really matter in a teamfight in the late game. And if you can eliminate 1 person it will increase your team's chance to win the lategame teamfight that leads to winning the game.
