Defenders 047: Omniknight

February 7, 2012


All wands shall break, Krusiv.  Remember that.

I really like Omni, but haven’t played him at all since Dota 2 came out.  Mostly because everytime I think, “We need an Omniknight this game”, my friend picks him and I pick Dazzle.  I really like the Omni/Dazzle combo.  The staying power of those two heroes is so good, and reaches absolutely absurd levels when you toss a couple mana boots into the mix.  With two heals + Repel + Shallow Grave, you can survive just about anything the enemy team throws at you.  Poison Touch + Degen Aura means you can chase just about anyone down, and since both heals also do AoE damage, you’re pushing machines.

And that’s just the two of them!  This pair also brings so much buffing/debuffing to teamfights that they fit into just about any team.

I think we talked about team combos before, but this time I want to know what’s your favourite laning combo.  Which two heroes let you absolutely dominate your lane?

    to me, the best lane combo in pub games is axe+omni, the backdoor helix+heal with a couple of stout shield on axe made me win almost every lane. besides that, i cant think of any other lane combos that actually standed out to me.

    so the first one we did was jakiro and huskar… worked out pretty well
    stun + slow + dot + leap + spear dot = win
    then we did ursa + bounty hunter… oh YO
    slow + wind walk burst + fury swipe + jinxxxx(BH crit skill) + shuriken = win
    then.. crystal maiden + lina…
    push push push push chain stun <3
    now we're planing on axe + juggernaut
    berserker + spin + counter helix + battle hunger + omni slash = win

    one combo that worked out in dota 1 that i want to try out in dota 2 (waiting for hero release) was
    bane + omni
    just sleep an enemy then omni runs next to them heals himself then bane brain saps for a huge burst of damage. early game just dominates

    Slardar + Venomancer is always a guaranteed win!

    Sand King + Zeus is good fun too.

    Played a game with a friend where he played Lina and I played Sven, roamed all game with Arcane Boots and denied their team farm everywhere. :D

    Juggernaut + Omni is a combo i do sometimes with my friends, since you could get a fairly easy kill at level 3

    simply walk up to the enemy, start to bladefury, and just keep chasing him, by the time bladefury has ended, you should still be next to the enemy hero who has pretty low health
    at that point omni can heal you to finish him off, or leave enough health for juggernaut to autoattack and get a kill

    Once omni gets manaboots, you can continue to spam both bladefury and a healing ward for free, and win your lane with ease

    huskar + dazzle is the most imbalanced teamup i’ve ever played
    with dazzle’s shallow grave.. huskar is just immortal which gives me tears of joy and gives tears of pain to the enemies :D
