Dota 2 Ogre Magi Hero Guide

Ogre Magi

Guide for playing with Ogre Magi: one of the best support hero in game because his buff skills and even can dominate the game later up to the mid game. But beware of long game. His stun skill is one of the best skill to initiate a gank or kill. He is capable of dealing damage and can even take some against enemy without dying easily. He can also provide a powerful buff for his team. This guide will cover on how to build Ogre Magi into a solid support.

Some the cons of playing with Ogre Magi is his low INT growth there fore he will have problem with mana regeneration. Try to give him at first items that can lift this stat. But he has a nice armor bonus and excellent growth STR so he will be more likely be a tanky in lane. You can farm but try not to over do it and let your other team mates who needs it. Because of his stun skill Fireblast followed by a slow of Ignite always try to gank, gank, gank and always buff your Carry.


Background story: The ordinary ogre is the creature for whom the phrase ‘As dumb as a bag of rock hammers’ was coined. In his natural state, an ogre is supremely incapable of doing or deciding anything. Clothed in dirt, he sometimes finds himself accidentally draped in animal skins after eating lanekill. Not an especially social creature, he is most often found affectionately consorting with the boulders or tree-stumps he has mistaken for kin (a factor that may explain the ogre’s low rate of reproduction). However, once every generation or so, the ogre race is blessed with the birth of a two-headed Ogre Magi, who is immediately given the traditional name of Aggron Stonebreak, the name of the first and perhaps only wise ogre in their line’s history. With two heads, Ogre Magi finds it possible to function at a level most other creatures manage with one. And while the Ogre Magi will win no debates (even with itself), it is graced with a divine quality known as Dumb Luck–a propensity for serendipitous strokes of fortune which have allowed the ogre race to flourish in spite of enemies, harsh weather, and an inability to feed itself. It’s as if the Goddess of Luck, filled with pity for the sadly inept species, has taken Ogre Magi under her wing. And who could blame her? Poor things.
