When Picking Medusa
Pros and Cons
Allies and Foes
Medusa is a tank, both in durability and AOE damage, once she is fully leveled. Her early game consists of spamming Mystic Snake for gold and harass. Split Shot will become truly formidable after you've acquired damage item. You need to be in the center of team fights, as you can effectively output 300% damage with Split Arrow. Focus fire on you is mitigated by your Mana Shield for tanking and Stone Gaze which slows movement and attack speed, dispels status buffs and damage summon units.
An insidious creature that dwelled for eons in the underwater prisons of Nazjatar, the Gorgon was unwittingly freed during the war waged between King Arthas's Scourge and the Naga on the icy shores of Northrend. Plagued by undeath in the aftermath, Medusa welcomed the blessing of immortality. Gifted with a keen sense of archery and affinity to magic at birth, she has honed her skills over the ages. Firing barrage of arrows, freeing her energy leeching serpent upon her enemies, and conjuring a protective barrier of mana are just minor skills at her disposal. Like her namesake, Medusa instills paralyzing fear into all that would dare looking at her.

Mystic Snake is very useful in farming it can also harras enemy by absorbing mana and damaging them.

Mana shield is max out because medusa must be tank enough for her to survive an enemy ganks. Stats also help her lasthit creeps easily in a lane and give her good bonus stats . Mystic Snake is pick in level 9 because she should not spam her snake to push the lane early so she could farm fast enough to finish her items.
