Dota 2 - How to lane against Razor ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 has many annoying heroes that can make your laning stage a living hell. Even though Razor is not the absolute worst one you can come across, he is definitely one of the hardest heroes to deal with, especially when you're a melee hero that has to lane against him.

Having said that, here are a couple of tips to keep in mind when you have the uneasy task to against this pesky hero. Keep it in mind that the tips here might be ineffective in certain patches, depending on what's the meta.

Pick a ranged hero

Even though this might seem like a suggestion, it is actually a must. There are literally no melee heroes that can stand a chance against Razor in a lane. Perhaps Monkey King could be though, but that's pretty much it.

If you want to succeed against this hero, you have to get a hero that has decent rang. In other words, heroes such as Invoker, Sniper, Zeus (because you last hit with his spells), are pretty good.

Don't get too close 

The second thing that you need to be aware of is not getting too close to Razor. Once you get near him, he will try to Static link you, which will result in you losing damage. Needless to say, this is not good at all, because you won't be able to get any last hits in the next 40 seconds. 

If Razor uses his Static Link on you, you have to try and run as fast as possible. It's not advisable to stay and fight under any circumstances, unless he has low HP and you happen to have a lot of spell fire-power.

There are many Razor players who will try to use Static link constantly. However, in the vast majortiy of cases, this might result in a failure, which means that you can take full advantage of it. 

When you see that he messes up his spell, start playing aggressive because he won't be able to reduce your physical damage. Of course, he can always outrun you due to his third skill but nevertheless, you will still be able to do some significant damage.
