Dota Allstars 6.55 (Beta): Alleria, the Windrunner GuideWritten by admin on September 23rd, 2008
Alleria the Windrunner Guide, Dota 6.55 New Hero (Beta). I think this hero will be controversial one. Alleria’s ultimate turn her into a tornado, which is a completely flying unit, for several seconds. Flying unit means you can move over trees, hills and has complete sight over it. It means you cannot juke from her while she is using Windrunner. Both with Kunkka the Admiral Proudmoore, they are great additional heroes. And yeah, she is an Intelligence hero, lot of people mistake and assume her as Agility type. I think that’s because we’re seen her as Traxec ^-^
These are her skills.
1: Shackleshot – Always knocks back the target. If the target hits a group of units or a tree, the struck units (including the target) are stunned for 0/1/2/3 seconds. (700 unit cast distance)
2: Power Shot – Deals 100/200/280/360 damage to all enemies in straight line. The arrow has vision and knocks down trees in the process. (1200 unit cast distance)
3: Fight in the Shade – Each unit in the target AoE loses 15/20/25/30% of its maximum health after 1 second. (600 unit cast distance)
4: Windrunner (ultimate) – Hero morphs into a cyclone and gains 100% evasion and 55/80/105 increased ms for 10 seconds. The hero is effectively a flying unit, can see over trees, fly over them, etc. She can use all her skills while in this form.
She is very good at chasing and ganking. Her ultimate, Windrunner, is incredible for chasing and escaping from ganks. Being able to see and fly over trees means that it is impossible to juke her. Even without her ultimate, Shackle Shot and Power Shot make for great chasing abilities. Power Shot can be used to create shortcuts through trees to catch up with your target.’Fight in the shade’ is arguably her worst skill. The AoE is pathetic, and 25% max HP damage isn’t much considering the long cast time. A properly aimed Shackle Shot (to ensure the enemy hits other units or trees and gets stunned) is necessary to make full use of this skill. All in all, a fun hero. A bit lacking in damage, but makes up for it with interesting abilities. Thanks to redrach and Mr.Jag for this complete analysis of Alleria.
