Dota 2 - Wisp Build Guide

Wisp is everywhere, and in all things. Denounced by enemies as the great unmaker, worshiped by scholars as the twinkling of a divine eye, Wisp occupies all planes at once, the merest fraction of its being crossing into physical existence at any one moment.

Like the great twin riders Dark and Light, and yet another ancient traveler whose true history is lost to the ages, Io the Wisp is a Fundamental of the universe-a force older than time, a wanderer from realms far beyond mortal understanding. Wisp is nothing less than the sum of all attractive and repulsive forces within matter, a sentient manifestation of the laws that bind particles together. It is only in the controlled warping of these forces that Wisp's presence can be experienced on the physical plane. A benevolent, cooperative force, Wisp bonds its strength to others so that the power of allies might be enhanced. Its motives inscrutable, its strength unimaginable, Wisp moves through the physical plane, the perfect expression of the mysteries of the universe.

Wisp is a master of backdoor and gang bang. Beware of Wisp if he is your enemy, because he can instantly jumps with his partner and backdoor your tower. Wisp is a hero that plays a real-support role. He should play beside a carry hero to support him with Wisp’s unique abilities. Here is some example of how strong Wisp is: He has a skill to increase his friend's movement speed, and this skill will also stun his enemies who is touched with the tether between Wisp and his friend, interesting is it? He also have a skill to increase his friend’s attack speed! and this will make your carry twice as strong! Not just that: he also can hold his friend’s hand and then together they can teleport right into the enemy's eyes and then gank the unlucky enemy.

This is your main skill as a carry's partner. With this skill combined with Tether, your carry will be so helped because of the +attack speed and the damage reduction. Be careful because this skill also drain Hp and mana when active, so use this only in a  teamfight or gank.

This skill is also useful for backdoor: Find a lone tower or an empty lane and together with your partner teleport there and destroy the tower as quick as possible. (Tiny is a recommended partner here)

First: Use Spirits as a preparation, the spirits will be needed to damaging the enemy. And then tether with your friend.

Why take Tether for level 1? You need it to escape if enemy wants to get firstblood by killing you. So you can tether to a creep or a friend and escape from the enemy.

Why maxed Spirits first?  This is your main nuke, you will need this for ganking, farming, and killing on early mid game.

Why maxed Tether before Overcharge?  You need Tether on mid game to gank enemies, and Overcharge is needed on late game to support your team's carry on the late game teamfight.

Early Game
As a support, if there are no courier or wards yet, you need to buy those items. Your team need it
1. Courier > to transfer items
2. Wards > a. to remove fog of war in certain area and make the important area to be visible so your team can see if there are enemies trying to gank your team.
b. To see where is the rune spawn, and what kind of rune it is. So your team can get that rune.
As a support for the team, there is no need to last hit the creep, it is your carry’s job to do it. What you need to do is denying the creep, it will holds enemy’s gold so your team can lead in items.
On early game, it is recommended for you to keep harassing your enemy with your:
1. Blue balls
2. Right Click
And remember to use tether to escape if there enemies trying to gank you.
You can tether with a creep if you are alone, or you can tether with your friend if you are with your friend.

Mid Game
Mid game is the time for ganking. You need to roam around the map and find enemies in other lanes. So you can gank them and get some kills to benefit your team. Before the gank, ask your friend in the lane to help you gank the enemy. Tell your friend, which target you want to gank, so you and your partner can focus fire on him.
Tether will be useful here, you need this to stun the enemy and also to increase you + your partner movement speed so you can chase the targetted enemy. You can also use the Spirits to helps your team damaging the enemy. The Spirits damage is enough to deal a painful damage on early-mid game.
Or you can surprise gank your enemy using Tether + Relocate: First, holding hand with your partner, and then you + your partner Relocate in front of the alone enemy, he will be surprised and your team can get the mid game kills you want. Relocate can also be use on a pushing strategy, you need to Relocate on the lonely tower and then destroy it quickly befor enemy comes up.
