Dota 2 Hero: Drow Ranger

Dota 2 Imba Heroes

Drow ranger (Traxex)

Playing with Drow Ranger Guide: This is hero is considered as a hard Carry and will be or can be unstoppable during late game if played right and farmed right. She is soft during early game and item dependent so buff her up. Best way to play Traxex is with controlled farming. Be aware of team mates needing help during clashes. Her slow skill (Frost Arrow) is one of the best in game when it comes to slowing enemies. Her silence skill when maxed is the longest so this will make a difference during team clashes.

Background Story: Drow Ranger’s given name is Traxex—a name well suited to the short, trollish, rather repulsive Drow people. But Traxex herself is not a Drow. Her parents were travelers in a caravan set upon by bandits, whose noisy slaughter of innocents roused the ire of the quiet Drow people. After the battle settled, the Drow discovered a small girl-child hiding in the ruined wagons, and agreed she could not be abandoned. Even as child, Traxex showed herself naturally adept at the arts they prized: Stealth, silence, subtlety. In spirit, if not in physique, she might have been a Drow changeling, returned to her proper home. But as she grew, she towered above her family and came to think of herself as ugly. After all, her features were smooth and symmetrical, entirely devoid of warts and coarse whiskers. Estranged from her adopted tribe, she withdrew to live alone in the woods. Lost travelers who find their way from the forest sometimes speak of an impossibly beautiful Ranger who peered at them from deep among the trees, then vanished like a dream before they could approach. Lithe and stealthy, icy hot, she moves like mist in silence. That whispering you hear is her frozen arrows finding an enemy’s heart.
