Dota 2 - The best items for Nyx Assassin ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


A couple of years ago, there was a Dota 2 hero that was really popular and everyone wanted to pick, and his name was Nyx. Thanks to his incredible skill set, this hero was able to fit in pretty much any lineup. However, due to the various nerfs, players usually pick him now just to counter some heroes (mainly the intelligence now). As a result, we don't really see the hero ìn game that often, even among the high-MMR bracket.

Apart from being fun to play with, Nyx can be extremely deadly in some scenarios, especially whenever against some setups. However, this won't be possible unless the hero gets the right items for the job. So, without further ado, let's take a look at them right now.

Usually, this is not one of the items that most Nyx players go for, but it's pretty useful, especially in some scenarios. Apart from the fact that it's cheap, you can always do the classic Blink + Stun combo, which can be pretty deadly.


Buying a Dagon in most cases could be considered as a waste for some heroes. However, that doesn't imply to Nyx, who is one of the best Dagon-carrying heroes in the game. This item fits in the assassin's role perfectly because it allows him to deal a lot of damage to some heroes.

Ethereal Blade

This is one of the best all-round items for Nyx because it gives him a lot of damage and it works wonders when you combine it with Dagon. However, this item is pretty expensive, so it might take the hero a while before he can purchase it.

Aghanim's Scepter

Buying an Aghsi s really cool in some situations because it gives the hero a bonus skill. However, using it s tricky because once you burrow, you won't be able to move. So, be sure to use this ability carefully.

Scythe of Vyse

Thje last item that some Nyx players love to purchase is a Scythe of Vyse. However, this item is really, really expensive, so the only way a Nyx can buy it is if he's playing a core role or he just has a fantastic game.  Even though it won't give you a lot of damage, this item is still good enough because you will get a reliable disabling mechanism.
