AA and venomancer DPS combo kills

aa and venom huge damage per second is really op even against the tankiest heroes

the standard role of this combo is both supports but you can do it with any role you like ( venom mid aa supp, both offlane, ….etc)

calculation for damage when combo is level 6 :

  • venomous Gale venomous-gale ( 70dp3s “15sec”)+ poison Nova poison-nova ( 30dps “16sec”) +ice blast ice-blast ( 12.5dps “8sec”) = 930 damage only from spells dps
  • don’t forget the explosion damage from ice-blast 250 + from venomous-gale 75 = 350
  • in total you will have “1255” damage dealt over 16 sec, no heals are available, and if he gets below 10% hp he drops dead

calculation for damage when spells are maxed ( level 18 ) :

  • venomous Gale venomous-gale ( 100dp3s “15sec”)+ poison Nova poison-nova ( 80dps “16sec”) +ice blast ice-blast ( 32dps “10sec”) = 2100 damage only from spells dps
  • don’t forget the explosion damage from ice-blast 450 + from venomous-gale 100 = 550
  • in total you will have “2650” damage for 16 sec, no heals are available, and if he gets below 12% hp he drops dead

this is more than enough damage to get any hero below 12%, and we are calculating here only with 3 spells, not counting any physical damage or other spells or anything from other teammates.

so the kills here are 100% guaranteed

*NOTE : all the items and abilities build are the best for the sake of the combo not in general games, so they might be very bad in a normal game when you are playing without the combo.for more information about all situational items take a look at dota 2 gamepedia, they have good descriptive core and situational items for ancient apparician and venomancer, but remember ” they are not for the sake of the combo
combo pros and cons
pros: huge magical damage and slow, goes throw magic immunity( as a slow and as an effect without dealing damage till the immunity ends)cons: can be countered by pipe – not tanky and can be killed easy if ganked – not easy to time the combo right and on most of enemy heroes
combo best teammates
all global abilities will work very good with this combo since they can deal more damage easily after the ice blast hits heroes like ( nature’s prophet, spectre, zues, io, …etc )and heroes who can get the enemies together so they can land the spells on 5 easier, guys like ( dark seer, magnus, enigma, …etc )and some aoe spells also like ( sand king, clock, qop,…etc )

combo best counters
