Puppet Master

Manipulating and controlling the opponent is a specialty of the Puppet Master. He excels in dealing damage and is suitable for end game carry and support at the same time. PM is also a easy hero to play because he can farm quite fast using his third skill Whiplash dealing massive aoe damage at higher levels.

Puppeteer's Hold (PH)= Great skill to initiate ganks, espcially when the enemy hero cannot use any blinking abilities (Chronos, Zephyr etc). it lasts for A VERY long time(5.25s) which is more than enough to burst an enemy hero down.

Puppet Show (PS)= At first i thought this skill would be mediocre, HOWEVER this skill makes the affected target forced to hit you, if within 400 range for 4 seconds PLUS it makes their hits DEAL ZERO DAMAGE. it has a range of 700 which is why many people use this skill first so they can get close enough for PH

Whiplash (WL)= Main farming skill, dealing area of effect damage and increased damage every 5 hits. This ability is boosted by attack speed and critical, as it provides an insane damage increase if the correct items are bought.

Voodoo Puppet (VP)= This ultimate provides decent damage, however it is usually obtained at a later stage, this is because his other abilities are much too useful to sacrifice.

Main Items

Enhanced Marchers = Movement speed and attack speed, great to support the skill WL.

Flayer = Boosts damage like crazy, giving the chance to critical hit on WL ( with this item it is possible to deal over 1000 damage).

Whispering Helm = Provides enough life steal to stay in the lane longer, for extra farming and most importantly survivability.

Savage Mace = Gives attack speed, TRUESTRIKE ( your attack will never miss) and a chacne to do a mini stun causing additional damage.

Additional Items

Hell flower = Attack speed, damage and silence ( also providing additional damage).

Shrunken Head = Universal item, game dependent on hero match ups.

Symbol of Rage = Mainly survivability.

Skill Allocation

Level 1 PH

Level 2 PS

Level 3 WL

Level 4 WL

Level 6 WL

Level 7 PH

Level 8 PS

Level 9 PH

Level 10 PS
