This hero feared because he can fill so many roles in Dota 2, start from Cary, Off-lane, Semi-support, initiator, or maybe a spy.

There are so many Rikimaru playstyle in Dota 2 world. However, I think the most common playstyle used by so many people especially pro player, Rikimaru will have a job to harsh and killing a courier and using his passive skill advantage to slowing down the growth of enemy item progress. Without courier delivering their item, Rikimaru didn’t need to be afraid to roaming and helping the other player in need.

Rikimaru also equipped with silence skill called “Smoke Screen” and 2 deadly skill called “Blink Strike” and “Tricks Of The Trade”. Both of this skill damage are really depending on our base agility and bonus agility from the equipment.
