When playing ap, which of these int support heroes would you most want to have on your team, and why?
Temp, shaman, nymph, glac, hellbringer, and any others u feel have a fully support role.
Demented can turn a lane you would normally lose into a lane you win and get a farmed carry out of. He also requires little money to do his job and has an amazing deny/harass animation.
He is less likely to get banned than the power houses of temp/hell, and he also isnt a a one hit wonder.
But its pretty close between the top three.
I hate nymph, to squishy, she is like a glacius but for one lane and doesnt have his fancy new ulti. It annoys me to think i would have wasted a range support slot on her, id prefer to get scout over a good carry and get a strong support lineup so he farms to victory.
Another vote for Demented Shaman here. He's that good.
I have a question about glacius. Unquestionably demented shamen is the best support, others like hellbringer and tempest are also good.
I just want to know how viable glacius is and how to correctly use him. In my experience he's mostly just good for his global mana regen and some cluctch freezing, his other two moves are kinda weak, and he himself is kinda weak and squishy. I doubt I'd pick him on banning pick, but for banning draft or single draft he could be a potential pick.
Is he worth using, what makes him useful?
There's a lot of good support heroes post patch.
are pretty much idiot proof. You have to really try hard to not be of help to your team with them.
Other good mentions but harder to play are: he's squishy and needs a strongish lane partner and team set up to do well. highly underestimated babysit/support, a bit harder to use because his cursed ground and ultimate require some good timing to get the full extent of them. is one of the best harassers, basically free farm for your carry if you are babysitting.
Voodoo jester is an interesting hero, his dependency on money makes him almost a carry. He has such a different playing style. Like the devourer of intels.
Glacius was used in competitive DotA when you wanted to finish the game around lvl 10-14. You would get him to go aura heavy and pick alot of nukers/pushers.
I can't believe Accursed has not been mentioned as much.
Accursed is one of the best support in my opinion.
Dsham/Accursed/Soul Reaper are all amazing hero's.
but since u specifically mention INT hero's i'd say dsham is the best of the best
