Dota 2 - When should you buy Daedalus? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 has a couple of high-damage items that are many players want to buy. However, in the vast majority of cases, they have to decide between which one they actually want to get. Even if you want to, you can just get damage items because you won't have any stats, which means that you will die fast.

One of the most popular and also the strongest damage items is Daedalus. This is one of the few Dota 2 items that provide Critical Strike. Even though it's pretty popular, many players tend to avoid getting it in favor of a Monkey King Bar or Desolator. So, the question is, when is it really worth buying this item?

Get it when you really need that crit

Of course, the first big reason why you'd want to get this item is because it has a critical strike. Whether you like it or not, one lucky crit can completely turn a fight around. However, this weapon's biggest advantage is also its biggest weakness. Many players just don't want to rely on the RNG to do damage, which is why they tend to avoid getting this item in favor of MKB and Desolator.

Buy this item if you have a skill that stacks with it

There are a couple of Dota 2 skills that can really benefit from having a critical strike, such as Kunkka's Tidebringer for example. If you're lucky enough to score a critical strike when you use it, you can do an insane amount of damage. 

Another ability that's worth mentioning here is the Sleight of Fist. Thanks to the bonus damage it does to heroes, this ability works wonders with Daedalus.

Purchase it whenever you just want to have fun

The last reason is pretty self-explaining. All Dota 2 items are fun to play with, and Daedalus is no exception. You should definitely buy it if you want to try it out.
