ALT+TAB Fast Walkthought
A few words
Magina, the deadliest blind person you'll ever meet.While being annoying to INT heroes all game long, it still poses lane dominance on mana dependent strength heroes early.
Having a perfect finishing skill that is even AoE makes this hero a force to be reckon with, in lategame being the place where few heroes can withstand his presence.
Basic information about Magina the Anti-Mage.
The name Anti-Mage is pretty self explanatory, Magina hates Magic and learned abilities focused on magic oriented heroes.
To define his role, lets look what he is good at. That would be:
Carrying is placed first due to the fact that Magina is a hard carry.Ganking being placed on two because of the mana-burning and blinking abilities that aid ganks greatly.Initiating is possible in late-game with Blink+Manta approach, but rather situational.Tanking is the worst thing that magina can do, AGI heroes simply don't tank.
Strength: 20 + 1.2
Agility: 22 + 2.8
Intelligence: 15 + 1.8
Damage: 49 - 53
Attack Range: Melee
Corect use of blink:
Level 1:Mana Break
Level 3: Mana Break
Level 5:Mana Break
Level 6: Mana Void
Level 7: Mana Break
Level 8: Blink
Level 9: Blink
Level 10: Spell Shield
Level 11: Mana Void
Level 12: Spell Shield
Level 13: Spell Shield
Level 14: Spell Shield
Level 15: Blink
Level 16: Mana Void
This skill build focuses on mana burning, which will help you deal with that pesky ES or Lina early game effectively while you farm.But if you feel them nukes hitting you way to hard simply swap a Mana Break level with a Spell Shield.
Every carry needs a set of tools to complete his job properly, Magina needs the following:
Slippers improving LH abilityes and can be converted in PMS or Wraiths.
GG Branches for an bit of everything and not last an Good Game.
Tangoes so you can stay more in the lane more and farm.
[ OR ]
Treads before you get your vanguard they should stay on Strenght after that switch to Agility.
Vanguard it grants damage block against agi heroes and regen that can be used in killing INT heroes.
TP Scrolls you should have map awareness, an ally may be facing an enemy that just towerdives you should TP without thinking and with a bit of luck they will ignore the TP or just not see it and you will be able to kill them.(most cases)
Manta Style now that you have survivability from the Vanguard it's time to focus on damage and the MS is usefullin chases.
Butterfly Every AGI hero's Luxury, grants the hero damage, tons of AS and the precious evasion.
Vladmir's You now have an decent amount of AS and damage, let's increase your survivability a bit, it also helps your mana problems.
Basher Now every hero should run when she/he sees you, the basher will help you stop them.
Orbs You already have an orb passive, that is priceless and works so good with your other skills.
Battlefury It may help you farm a bit, but the butterfly also does and you have tons of regen from Vanguard.
Radiance You are a carry not a tank, sparkles won't make your death more nicer.
Boots of Travel Provides an counter-push measure for late game but you benefit more from AS in my opinion.It may be considered past the 40th minute mark.
Black King Bar You already have Spell Shield and if they focus everything on you, your team-mates will clear them up.
Don't solo, you are very weak during the laning phase.
After you reach level 4 you should right-click your enemies a few times and then blink away to make sure their mana stays low.
Ganking with blink it's simple, blink in from fog.Wack, wack and wack some more then finish with mana void, if something unexpected happens just blink away in fog/far away.
After you get your Vladmir's you can push very well exploit the blink so you can push far far away and when the enemy team comes just blink away.
If your team lacks of an good initiator you should do it, locate the most dangerous INT, blink in, activate Manta and wack away.
