General Strategy

Versatile and strategic, Dark Seer excels at manipulating the positions of his enemies. Vacuuming foes into the attacks of his allies, he can turn enemy strength against itself by pulling foes through his replicating wall.

Damage Attack damage is the amount of damage a unit is dealing with an unmodified basic attack; the base values are different for every hero. The total attack damage of a unit is the sum of dota2
Magical
Dark Seer creates a vacuum over the target area that sucks in enemy units, disrupting them and dealing damage.
Cast Animation: 0.4+0.7
Cast Range: 500 (Talent 600)
Effect Radius: 250/350/450/550 (Talent 325/425/525/625)
Damage Attack damage is the amount of damage a unit is dealing with an unmodified basic attack; the base values are different for every hero. The total attack damage of a unit is the sum of dota2 : 40/80/120/160
Pull Duration: 0.5
Cooldown symbol.png 32 (Talent 28.8)
Mana symbol.png 100/130/160/190
Does not pierce spell immunity. Attempts to deal damage if enemy turns spell immune before the pull ends.
Modifiers
Debuff Vacuum: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Ish`Kafel modifies the center of gravity to a place of his choosing.

Notes:

  • The pull duration always takes 0.5 seconds, no matter how far or close the units are from the center, so the speed varies.
  • The damage is applied upon losing the debuff, so that dispelling it causes it to happen earlier.
  • Can pull units over impassable terrain.

Mana symbol.png 100/110/120/130
Partially pierces spell immunity. Can be cast on spell immune allies.
Cannot be cast on spell immune enemies. Shell persists if debuff was placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Modifiers
Buff or Debuff, based on the target`s alliance Ion Shell: Dispellable with any dispel.
The Dark Seer slices holes into the `Land Behind the Wall,` causing prismatic energy to seep forth.

Notes:

  • The shell can be put on enemy and allied units, damaging only enemy units. The unit with the shell itself is not damaged.
  • Successive casts on the same unit do not stack. Casting it on a unit that already has the Ion Shell on, only refreshes the duration.
  • Deals 3/5/7/9 (Talent 11/13/15/17) damage in 0.1 second intervals, starting 0.1 second after the cast, resulting in 250 damage instances.

Cooldown symbol.png 100 (Talent 90)
Mana symbol.png 125/250/375
Upgradable by Aghanim`s Scepter. Increases the damage dealt by illusions.
The Dark Seer, while unable to return to his natural realm, can channel part of the prismatic wall with powerful strength of mind, sowing confusion amongst enemy ranks.

Notes:

  • The wall is always created perpendicular to the line between Dark Seer and the targeted point.
  • When the illusion dies, the wall can create a new one of that hero as soon as it comes in range.
  • Illusions created by Wall of Replica have a static 5 gold and experience bounty which does not scale with levels.
  • Every time the wall creates an illusion, it slows the hero right afterwards.
  • Wall of Replica illusions are visually distinguishable for the enemies.

It not only disorients and damages enemies, but also pushes them into a small area to follow up with area spells or to trigger other abilities, such as his Wall of Replica ultimate that turns the very power of enemies against them in the form of illusions that replicate their statistics. His other spells focus on buffing allies with speed, or in the case of his Ion Shell, granting an aura that radiates damage onto enemies who venture within it.

Recommended items

Starting Items:

  • Stout Shield gives you resistance to physical attacks whether you are laning or jungling.
  • Tangoes cover your health and mana issues until you build up your early game items.
  • Iron Branches is beneficial with its early boost to Dark Seer`s attributes, but also help you build up to a Magic Wand and/or Mekansm later on.
  • Soul Ring can be considered as it can be assembled in the side shop and lets your team use the courier more. This is especially important if your midlaner plans on getting a Bottle quickly.

Early Game:

  • Soul Ring covers most of your mana issues and allows you to constantly cast your Ion Shell in order to harass your lane opponents and get some last hits.
  • Boots of Speed gives mobility for chasing or running away.

Core Items:

  • Magic Wand allows you to sustain your presence in fights.
  • Arcane Boots increase your mana pool and allow you to give your teammates mana.
  • Mekansm adds to Dark Seer`s teamfight effectiveness and increases your durability. Also his decent Intelligence gain means he will generally have enough mana to use the heal.
  • Town Portal Scroll allows you to be at any lane for a gank, countergank, or push in seconds.

Situational Items:

  • Bottle can also be used to sustain high mana use, if the Dark Seer is put midlane. It has the added benefit of rune control as most runes are useful for Ion Shell harass.
  • Crimson Guard can protect your team from enemy carries in teamfights.
  • Aghanim`s Scepter effectively allo
