Dota 2- Which Melee Heroes worh with a Drow Strat? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 is a very interesting game that has many different ways in which you can play it. One of them is to constantly push your enemies until you eventually break their base. This can be done in multiple ways but one of the most efficient methods is by rolling a good-old "Drow Strat". This is a term that's used whenever a team picks Drow Ranger and other ranged heroes. As you know, Drow is considered to be one of the fastest pushers in Dota 2 that's capable of dealing loads of damage.

However, in order for this Drow Strat to actually work, there should be at least one melee hero on the team, which is easier said than done. The hero has to be able to tank a lot and also initiate, so here are some of the best proposals if you're looking for a hero to pick.

Centaur Warrunner 

Centaur is one of the heroes that's capable of providing his team with the needed initiation, as well as escape, which makes him one of the best heroes for the Drow start. He is naturally tanky, which is great because he can soak up a lot of damage. On top of that, he also has a stun and deals a lot of damage, which is always a plus. It's safe to say that this is the best melee hero for this strat.


The second hero that we believe deserves to be here is Timbersaw. As you know, he is one of the tankiest Dota 2 heroes but there is one problem with him - he needs to have a lot of farm in order to be effective. Needless to say, this is not easy, especially whenever you have Drow and a potential range mid laner on your team who is also going to try and farm.


Despite being one of the newest Dota 2 heroes, Mars is a great fit for this strategy. He deals tons of damage and he is also capable of tanking absurd amounts of burst damage. What's more, he also doesn't need that much farm like Timbersaw for example, which is another plus.
