FLIES TO ANY SIDE OF THE MAP TO PARTICIPATE IN FIGHTS.
Storm Spirit is literally a force of nature. The wild force of wind and weather, bottled up in human form. And a boisterous, jovial and untamed form, it must be said! As cheerful as our favorite uncle, he is able to breathe a sparkling energy into every scene. But he wasn’t always like that. In fact, there was a great tragedy in his creation. Generations ago, on the plains beyond the Howling Mountains, a good person wandered famished, starving and thirsty. A simple elementalist named Panzatrueno used a forbidden spell to summon the storm spirit, he wanted rain. Enraged at this mortal’s presumption, the Celestial Storm known as Raijin was unleashed upon the land, lashing it mercilessly with winds and floods. Panzatrueno was no match for the Celestial being, not until he conjured a suicidal spell that unified their fates into one: he captured the Celestial in his own body. Trapped together, Panzatrueno’s irrepressible humor merged with Raijin’s boundless energy, creating the young Raijin Panzatrueno, a Celestial who walks the world in physical form.
DOTA 2: THE BEST ITEMS FOR STORM SPIRIT
We break down some of the best value buys for Storm Spirit.
Storm Spirit is among the best mid laners in Dota 2 and is often the preferred choice for many people. That’s why we’ve decided to share some of the best items you can for this hero once you choose him.
Although there are many popular heroes in Dota 2, only a few of them have as many fans as Storm Spirit. This is an Intelligence mid laner who is known for his snowballing abilities. As long as the hero starts the game well, he can easily lead his team to victory. That is one of the reasons why the opposing team usually does everything in their power to prevent this from happening.
While it is true that some people choose Storm Spirit as a carry in the safe lane, he is most useful in the middle lane. The fact that he can get to level six as quickly as possible is an advantage, because once that happens, SS becomes a dangerous enemy. Regardless of his access lane, Storm Spirit is one of the heroes that need to buy a specific set of items to be effective. That said, let’s go over some of the best items you can get for this hero.
All Dota 2 heroes need to get an item that provides movement speed. While Storm Spirit may be one of the exceptions due to his ultimate ability, he is among the slowest heroes in the game. Therefore, he needs to get at least one PT to chase and escape when necessary. What makes this item even better is the fact that it can give you INT when needed. Sometimes, this can be enough to escape from dangerous situations.
Orchid is an item that is often underestimated, especially by people with no previous experience. The item is great for several heroes, but it definitely shines the brightest when Storm Spirit has the opportunity to use it.
Despite not giving you a lot of stats, Orchid deals a lot of damage, which is great for the mid-game. Storm Spirit that Orchid gets has the potential to kill any hero on the map, regardless of their position. In other words, this item allows the hero to control the tempo of the game and ambush those who need to die as soon as possible.
Kaya is a relatively cheap item, but this does not mean that it is not worth it. The fact that it costs only 2050 gold means that SS can get it early on and use the extra mana reserve, damage and mana regeneration. Needless to say, this item also allows you to combine it with all sorts of different things, including Bloodstone. The latter is one of the must-have items in every Storm Spirit.
If there is one element that stands out for Storm Spirit, it has to be Bloodstone. Despite being one of the most expensive items you can get, Bloodstone provides the hero with additional XP, mana and mana regeneration. In addition, it can be used in tricky situations and save the hero from certain death.
All Dota 2 items that provide INT and mana regeneration are good for Storm Spirit. Therefore, do not be surprised that Shiva’s Guard is also among the best items for this hero. However, it is not like Bloodstone and Orchid because it is more situational. This means that you should not get it all the time because it may not be needed in the current situation.
