The Silencer is among the minority of intelligence heroes who rely on their physical attack to take down enemy heroes. Although Curse of the Silent deals surprisingly good damage to unprepared opponents, the Silencer's real power lies in his Glaives of Wisdom. With powerful intelligence items, the Silencer is capable of easily out-damaging many strength and agility heroes who focus on their physical attacks. Since he needs powerful items to be effective, the Silencer is best utilized by players who enjoy killing a lot of creeps and getting as much gold as possible. Both of his silencing abilities are very useful in combat, especially against enemy spellcasters who like to cast a lot of spells in quick succession. Last Word is an offensive aura which silences enemies after they cast a spell. This will completely ruin the deadly combos of a lot of dangerous spellcasters, making the Silencer an excellent counter to this type of enemy. Global Silence is perhaps his most powerful spell when used at the proper moment. If cast at the beginning of a large battle, this spell can mean the difference between an easy victory and a crushing defeat.
