Dota 2 Heroes: Storm Spirit Guide

Dota 2 Imba Heroes


Storm Spirit (Raijin)

Playing with Storm Spirit Guide: this is a hero that is fun to watch in game as he bounce back and forth like a ball during battles and clashes.  And sometimes very annoying as he will made an escape during gank and your team will not be able to catch him. Storm Spirit is not a newbie friendly hero as it will take a lot of playing time to control him efficiently. Storm Spirit users will also have to manage it’s mana consumption for it can go from full mana to zero in a second.

Storm Spirit or Raijin is almost a complete package he can deal good damage, and have a disable skill. Almost uncatchable because of his fourth skill. He has a great starting armor at 5.

Storm Spirit is a good harasser especially he has a maxed Overload first. So during early game always try to harass your opposing lane hero. You can always go solo mid when using Raijin. Always pay attention on ganks opportunity and if you maxed out Vortex first try to always do the Tower Kill.

Description: Storm Spirit is literally a force of nature–the wild power of wind and weather, bottled in human form. And a boisterous, jovial, irrepressible form it is! As jolly as a favorite uncle, he injects every scene with crackling energy. But it was not always thus, and there was tragedy in his creation. Generations ago, in the plains beyond the Wailing Mountains, a good people lay starving in drought and famine. A simple elementalist, Thunderkeg by name, used a forbidden spell to summon the spirit of the storm, asking for rain. Enraged at this mortal’s presumption, the Storm Celestial known as Raijin lay waste to the land, scouring it bare with winds and flood. Thunderkeg was no match for the Celestial–at least until he cast a suicidal spell that forged their fates into one: he captured the Celestial in the cage of his own body. Trapped together, Thunderkeg’s boundless good humor fused with Raijin’s crazed energy, creating the jovial Raijin Thunderkeg, a Celestial who walks the world in physical form.

A hero for adrenaline junkies, Storm Spirit provides arguably the best nonstop movement of any hero, and is commonly seen bouncing around the battlefield, zapping his foes and zippingaway. Storm Spirit mixes up physical attacks spell damage. Static Remnant lays down a flickering electrical clone, which on contact will explode, delivering shocks to all foes in the vicinity. Electric Vortex is a powerful disabling spell, which Storm Spirit uses to reel in enemies; he especially likes to reel them into a Static Remnant. Completing this combo, Overload adds a blast of electricity to every spell he casts. Storm Spirit’s ultimate ability is Ball Lightning, a teleportation spell with no cooldown and no maximum range, which gives Storm Spirit the ability to zap around the map as long as his mana and regeneration don’t give out. Like a storm, this hero gathers strength slowly, but once at full power, he is an unstoppable force of nature.
