Dota 2 - Naga Siren Build Guide

Among the high-sworn of the Slithereen Guard there is a solemn vow oft repeated before battle: No Slithereen may fail. In truth, these words are equal parts oath and enforceable covenant, for those who fall short of their duty are banished from the order. To fail is to be other than Slithereen.

Once most highly esteemed of her race, Slithice for many years commanded a battalion of her fellows, using her formidable voice as her greatest weapon. Powerful, sinuous, serpentine, she led her deadly Guard in defense of the Deep Ones, and the great wealth of the sunken cities. But in the final battle of Crey, her forces were driven back by a marauding army of levianths intent on finding tribute for their god Maelrawn. After the long and bloody onslaught, as the bodies were cleared from the sunken halls, a single jeweled chalice was found missing from the trove. Of her hundred Guard, only a handful survived, but their bravery and sacrifice were of little consequence. What mattered was that treasure was taken. Honor destroyed. And so Naga Siren was cast out. Banished to search for the stolen chalice. Though she might add a hundred times her weight to the golden trove, she is doomed to live apart until that day she returns that which was taken. For no amount of gold is equal in honor to the honor she lost.

Naga Siren is one of the best cloner hero that can be used to do a big combo-wombo. Her clones can make her become one of the fastest farmer in the game. While Naga hersefl farming on top, her clones can do farm in jugnle, or even mid.
Her combo is using her Song to make everyone goes sleep and to use all of combo skills after the sleep.

Slithice, while being strong in her own right, is notoriously hard to track down.
You create 3 illusion of yourself. Your illusion will helps you in farms. With this illusion, you can farms fast because you have more army.
You can farm in jungle quickly with helps of your illusions. Remember that your illuson can also splash the Rip Tide skill of you so it will faster your farm even more.

Interrupts the target and traps them in place, preventing movement or blinking.
MANA COST: 75/85/95/105COOLDOWN: 14
DURATION: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
The only way to escape the onslaught of a Slithereen is to never oppose one in the first place.
Trap 1 enemy unit in your net. Very good to torture him. You have 3 images that makes you have a decent damage, you also have RipTide that will reduce enemy's armor.
This net trap is considered a long disable, 5 seconds in level 4, a decent disable to kill a single target.

3. Rip Tide
The Naga Siren and her images hit all nearby units with a damaging wave of water that lowers armor for 8 seconds.
MANA COST: 80/90/100/110COOLDOWN: 19/16/13/10
DAMAGE: 130 / 160 / 190 / 220ARMOR REDUCTION: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
A torrent from the Deep Ones crushes the defenses of the Siren's enemies.
With this skill, you will deal some damages and reduce some armor of enemies. You and your images are all casting this skill, this will makes you can farms in jungle or in another lane, using your image that can cast this and deal damage and reduce armor to creeps. You will be a fast farmer with this farming method. Maybe you can get Radiance or Diffusal Blade in under 20-25 minutes.
This skill does not stack, not like Meepo. So the damage will be the same 220, and the armor reduction is 5, although enemy receive this from you and your images. But this skill will larger the AoE because your nearby images also cast this skill.

4. Song of the Siren
All enemies in range of the Naga Siren are put into a magical stasis where they cannot act or be attacked. Using Song of the Siren again will end the duration early.
MANA COST: 100/100/100COOLDOWN: 180/120/60
Slithice's powerful voice enchants leagues of opponents, while calling her Slithereen kin in a time of need.
Song of the Siren Cancel
Release enemy units from your song so they can be targeted again.
Makes enemy in a wide AoE around you to sleep. A very powerful initiating skill that requires allies to be ready to deal some combo-wombo after this song goes down. Enigma, Dark Seer, and TideHunter are some perfect partner to use combo-wombo after this song. And then your part is to using RipTide to crush enemy's aarmor and then kill enemies using your right click.

You can also use this skill to escape, so cast this if you're in danger.

Why maxed Mirror Image first? With this skill maxed first, you will get lots of damage potential since the earliest stage of the game, makes your illusions more tanky and also deal more damage. Makes you easier to survive in lane and allows you to jungle easily. Be aggressive with this build, you are more fierce than enemies.

Why take 1 level of ensnare on early game? Your goal is to ensnare one target and beat up him with your 3 illusions. Remember that this build have lots of physical damage from Mirror Image. It will be easy for you. lf. Try to get firstblood if you can.

Why maxed RipTide before Ensnare? RipTide should be maxed immediately for easier farm using illusions, and also: because this is a nuker, will reach it's maximum potential on early-mid game. Reduce armor is also good for farming and also killing

Early Game
I recommend you to start using Images since the earliest stage of the game. Illusions is your heart, no Naga Siren without illusions. If your illusions came up, no enemy wants to fight you one-by-one if he has no AoE spells. That means that you can conquer creeps area and farm freely. And if you have a chance, Ensnare 1 enemy and beat him up with your 3 illusions. You are strong, remember that, imagine, you are facing DrowRanger 1 vs 1. Just by using Mirror Image, she must run or die easily because of your ensnare + right click for you and illusions.
Jungling is also a good option. Using illusions, you can farm quickly in jungle too.

Mid Game
In mid game, you have free choice to farm or to ganking. Ganking is not a bad option because Ensnare + Rip Tide + Mirror Image attack is guarantee a kill. And also Song to make you can escape easily.
Solo kill is possible if you're facing a non AoE hero. Also you can keep farming whether in lane or in jungle. Keep farming makes you become a decent carry for late game which is your main job for the game.
Sea - Dota 2 - Naga Siren Build Guide
Late Game
You can start using your combo-wombo here. First, cast Song of the Siren, then you + friends surrounded your enemy and be prepared to cast all the skills. Be prepare by casting Mirror Image, and get ready to cast RipTide. Then - Combo-Wombo! Using Tidehunte, DarkSeer, and/or Enigma will works so well. You have to use RipTide and right click enemies in this combo. With the combo your team have a very high chance of winning the teamfight.

LGD vs Na'Vi International 2012 Winner Bracket Game 1
Match ID: 37578738
Naga carries the game and gets a lot of kills. Coupled with Dark Seer LGD wrecks teamfights and ensures a rather easy win.

LGD vs Na'Vi International 2012 Winner Bracket Game 3
Match ID: 37590330
Naga manages to farm a lot and get very fat but LGD loses in the end. One of the best games of the tournament that also shows that Naga can't measure to real hard carries.

Match ID: 41790675
Showcase on how powerfull Gem of Truesight is on Naga.
Not very high skilled pub game which you can see when 4 opponents rely on invisibility. The game was pretty tedious for me and seemed like a sure loss, but I managed to save the game by buying a gem and netting kills.

Match ID: 44166964
A lot better pub game where I'm agressive most of the time and with my team push towers and prevent enemies from getting any kind of farm. I forget to level Ensnare and keep it at level 1 for whole early game.
