Dota 2 - Silencer Build Guide

BIO
Part of the seventh and final generation of a carefully designed pedigree, Nortrom was bred by the ancient order of the Aeol Drias to be the greatest magic user the world had ever seen. He was the prophesied one, the culmination of two-hundred years of careful pairings, a war-mage who would bring glory to the order, and destruction to their sworn enemies, The Knights of the Fold.

Raised with other young mages in a hidden cantonment among the hills of the Hazhadal barrens, the order's preceptors waited for Nortrom's abilities to manifest. While the other students honed their talents with fire, or ice, or incantatory spells, Nortrom sat silent and talentless, unable to cast so much as a hex. As the day of final testing approached, he still hadn't found his magic. In disgust, the preceptors berated him, while the children laughed. "You are no mage," the head of the order declared. Still, Nortrom did not slink away. He entered the day of testing and faced down the young mages who had mocked him. And then his preceptors learned a valuable lesson: a lack of magic can be the greatest magic of all. Nortrom silenced the young mages one by one and defeated them in single combat, until he alone stood as champion of the Aeol Drias, in fulfillment of the prophecy.

Why maxed Glaives of Wisdom  first?  The damage is so high and you need this to harass enemy on early-mid game.

Why maxed Curse of the Silent before Last Word?  Curse of the Silence is more useful in the early-mid game to drain enemy's mana and HP.


STRATEGY
Early Game
On early game, you should farm and get as many last hits as you can. Beware of high damaged enemy, stay careful on your lane. And also don't forget to harass your enemy using Glaives and also Curse of the Silence. Curse will drain enemy's mana so you can be safer because your enemy can't use their skill. And if you are being ganked, run and safe your life, you are so squishy so don't act as a warrior.
If someone says missing, better to stay near your tower.

Mid Game
On the mid game, always keep eye on all teamfights happening on the map. Why? Because you will need to cast your ultimate Global Silence immediately if you see that your friends want to start a teamfight. This will be needed to defend your team from enemy's magic. Glaives of Wisdom should already maxed here, the damage is so important in any teamfight. And if your team haven't got any ward, you can buy it and place it on the ward spot. Ward is importantnt to see the unseen.


Late Game
on the late game, your Global Silence becoming so much more important. With the increasing tempo, a teamfight is ususally the decisive teamfight that leads to victory, so don't lose any single teamfight here. Keep an eye on every friendly hero and watch out from the enemy. And with the maximum intelligence you already have, your Glaives of Wisdom damage should be very painful, keep focusing on squishy hero first and then one by one, kill them.
