Dota 2 Imba Heroes


Jakiro (Twin Head Dragon)

Playing with Jakiro (THD) Guide: Jakiro or Twin headed Dragon (THD) is one of the most effective pusher in game. He is equipped with loads AOE skills that make him valuable even in clashes and team fight. The Dual Breath and Liquid Fire skill make him a great pusher. Jakiro is a good farmer with great growth stats and can control a lane. Equipped him well early as a support and your team will be a force in end game.

Some players may find him appalling because of his slow movement speed, low armor and range. And Jakiro’s Ice Path and Macropyre is somtimes unreliable and sometimes deals no damage that’s is why it pales in comparison with other AOE skills. Beginners may have a hard time playing with this hero but Jakiro is a fun hero.

Jakiro as of now is quite unpopular in competition and even in friendly game. If your team is needing a different kind of support and versatile try picking this Hero. When playing Jakiro play the role as the pusher but do actively participate in ganks and clashes. Your role should be the supportive one, casting the Ice Path and Jakiro’s ultimate 4th skill Macropyre. Invest on Mekansm when it comes to items.

Description: Even among magical beasts, a twin-headed dragon is a freak. Equal parts ice and fire, cunning and rage, the creature known as Jakiro glides over charred and ice-bound battlefields, laying waste to all who would bear arms against it. Pyrexae dragon clutches always contain to fledglings. Famous for their viciousness even from the first moments of life, newly hatched dragons of this species will try to kill their sibling while still in the nest. Only the strongest survive.

By some accident of nature, the freak Jakiro hatches from a single egg, combining in a single individual the full range of abilities found within the diverse Pyrexae species. Trapped within the armature of its monstrous body, the powers of ice and fire combine, and now no enemy is safe.
