Dota 2 - The best items for Silencer ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
One of the most annoying Dota 2 heroes that you can play against is Silencer. This is the type of a hero that can function both as a support and as a mid laner, so it all comes down to what's the situation in the game. However, it's safe to say that the hero definitely shines more if he's in the mid lane. There, due to his annoying abilities, he can make the life of most mid heroes a living hell. In fact, if you want to check a list of some of the heroes that will have a hard time against him, make sure to read our previous article.
In this one, we will try to show you what are the best items that you get for this hero. Keep it in mind that each patch has its own items meta, so some of the options here might not the best in the future. Nonetheless, the vast majority of them are widely accepted, so feel free to use them.
Force staff/Hurricane Pike
One of the best items that you can for Silencer when you're playing in the mid lane is Hurricane Pike. This item gives the hero some HP, range, and most importantly, a way in which he can escape from danger. Sadly, this is one of Silencer's biggest problems - he just doesn't have a reliable escape tool. However, this item gives him just that, which is why it's really strong.
If there is one thing that's worse than Global Silence, it has to be two of them. This is one of the strongest team-fight ultimates in the game, which is why it's no surprise that many people tend to buy it so that they can be more useful during a team fight. However, this item is pretty expensive, so it might take some time until you farm it.
Scythe of Vyse
This is a classic item for Silencer that's been around since the days of DotA. Apart from the fact that you get loads of intelligence and mana regen, this item also has one of the best active effects in Dota 2. Sadly, it's pretty expensive, which means that you will only be able to buy it in the later stages of the game.
The last item on our list is Shiva's Guard. This is a great item for Silencer because it can be used both offensively and defensively. What's more, it's also not that expensive, so many players can buy it early and use it.
