How to Counter Invoker in Dota 2 7.34 Patch

The latest and greatest patch from Valve is here and Gaben has blessed us with inba heroes, and abilities yet again. Invoker is no doubt a hero who has always been a headache for players in the lane. This time is no different, he is again here to take the gold, deny the creeps, and make the mid-lane a living nightmare. Don’t worry, we are here to help in our guide on How to Counter Invoker in Dota 2 7.43 Patch.

Invoker is a hero with a versatile arsenal, but this doesn’t mean that he is an imbalanced hero that everyone can spam. The ones who focus specifically on him can master him, but leaving this for a couple of days will take away the skills.

Keeping this in mind, and always imagining that you can turn the Invoker Lane into a nightmare for him is the main part here. Read our tips below to gain a confidence boost in the lane and make it difficult for the Invoker Spammer.

How to Counter Invoker in Dota 2 7.34 Patch

Tip#01 – Farm the Lane with Abilities

You have your abilities for a reason and that is not only using it on enemy heroes, but the creeps as well. When you are against an Invoker Spammer, you have to use your abilities to take the gold from creeps.

Don’t worry about your mana, it is going to regenerate itself afterward. Make sure you have your mangoes and clarities to boost mana regen. This is a specific case for when you have a kill opportunity. Pump that mango and get on with the kill.

This is specifically useful for those who are up against Invokers spamming EMP. If you have no mana, he won’t be able to burn anything.

Tip#02 – Carry a Dust

The smart asses are going to say that “we already know dust is for invisible enemies, duh!”. But, these are the kind of guys to forget to bring Dust while fighting Invoker in the lane.

So, our tip number 2 on How to Counter Invoker in Dota 2 7.34 would be to always carry dust while fighting Invoker. If he is close to dying, he will just go invisible. Use dust at the moment to get an upper hand.

Tip#03 – Make Items for Invoker

You are either laning against Invoker or you are not. In both cases, you will face him afterward, and also get annoyed by his strange combos. To counter that, you will have to make specific items in the game. Remember; in the Dota 2 7.34 Patch and Updates, the Deafening Blast doesn’t stun, so you can go for various items now. These include;

  • Glimmer Cape
  • Force Staff
  • Eul’s Scepter of Divinity

The items we mentioned are not that expensive and you can make them early on, even as a support. Before any combo, Invoker will probably use his tornado to make you fly in the air, while he uses his second ability like EMP, Meteor, Sun Strike, and so on. To counter them, you can just use your Force Staff, Scepter, or even Glimmer.

One more you need to get is the Black King Bar known as BKB. This makes you immune to any type of Magic Damage in the game. Yeah, Invoker is all about Magic Damage, so you are basically invincible.

Tip#04 – Tackling Invoker in Late Game

In the late game, Invoker likes to pick up Abyssal, Hex, and then a Refresher. Using all of these before you can even BKB, makes things quite out of hand. To counter that, you need to go with two different items, including a Lincoln’s Sphere.

Get a BKB with a Lincoln, or something else like a Force Staff or Scepter of Divinity. BKB and Lincon combo is a must to tackle the Invoker in the Late Game if you are the team carry.

Tip#05 – Best Heroes to Counter Invoker in Lane

Yes, there are also heroes you can pick to counter Invoker in the Dota 2 7.34 Patch. These heroes are;

  • Broodmother
  • Void Spirit
  • Puck
  • Lycan
  • Enchantress
  • Pangolier

Keep in mind that these heroes are some of the best in the game in Dota 2 Patch 7.34 you can get to counter lane Invoker. As you can see, these are the items that are quiet to get on top of, and it is something that Invoker Hates himself. You can pick other heroes as well here like Ember, Queen of Pain, and so on. Anti Mage (AM) is an exceptional choice here as well.

The Verdict

So, that winds up our tips on How to Counter Invoker in Dota 2 7.34 Patch. Gaben has once again blessed us with an Invoker Spammer in mid-lane, and we can’t do anything else but hope for his disconnection. But, for the time being, you can read our guide here to get a pump and a heads-up.
