Swiftblade works himself into a blade frenzy.
While in this state, he gains Magic Immunity and
deals high damage per second to any nearby enemy units.
Swiftblade is free to move around even while this skill
Level 1 : 80 Damage per second for 5 seconds
Level 2 : 100 Damage per second for 5 seconds
Level 3 : 120 Damage per second for 5 seconds
Level 4 : 140 Damage per second for 5 seconds
Mana cost 110
Cooldown 30 seconds
Note: BF is an incredibly powerful move at lower levels, as it's damage is beyond of what any hero can do at level 1. IF it is executed perfectly, it should deal around 400 damage at level 1, thus if you partner up with a hero that can stun, a couple of hits and a BF will easily get you FIRST BLOOD. The aim of this ability is to predict where your enemy is going and follow them, when you get better at this skill it will become second nature. ALSO another amazing this about this skill is the ability to be immune to magic, the main use of this is to wait for the enemy to try to stun you with a ranged skill, e.g. ( Andromeda, Valkyrie etc.) and then using BF a moment before impact, this can completely remove the damage and the stun effect of the enemies skills, thus wasting their mana and losing cooldown time.
Extensive training in melee combat has
allowed Swiftblade to perfect the art
of countering enemy attacks, granting a
chance that he will retaliate every time
an enemy hero strikes him.
Level 1 : 15% chance to couter melee and ranged attacks
Level 2 : 20% chance to couter melee and ranged attacks
Level 3 : 25% chance to couter melee and ranged attacks
Level 4 : 35% chance to couter melee and ranged attacks
Mana cost n/a
Note: Powerful ability based on your heroes damage, thus it should be obtained later on in game when your hits actually deal some damage.
Swiftblade’s unsurpassed skill at
the sword has made him a master
of hitting where it hurts, giving him
a chance to critically strike opponents
with each attack.
Level 1 : 10% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Level 2 : 18% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Level 3 : 26% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Level 4 : 36% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Mana cost n/a
Note: Great for dealing that extra damage, it should be supported by items that give attack speed and damage.
Swiftblade attacks random nearby targets
with such speed that he appears to teleport
to them. Targets are randomly chosen, yet it
is possible to teleport to the same target
Level 1 : 150 to 250 damage to 3 random targets
Level 2 : 150 to 250 damage to 5 random targets
Level 3 : 150 to 250 damage to 8 random targets
Mana Cost 200/275/350
Deals 0.1 second mini stun to primary target
Swift Slashes is boosted by Staff of the Master
Note: this ultimate is the main reason to get Runed Axe ( melee attacks deal AOE ( area of effect damage). This ability does maximum damage when the enemy hero is alone, HOWEVER, IT SHOULD ALSO be used to interrupt major spell casters, e.g. IF TEMPEST or Glacius IS USING his ultimate, on a lot of your team mates, TRY TO mini stun him by using the SS ( Swift Slashes). This skill can be combined with BF (Blade Frenzy at lower levels), firstly start with BF the enemy will run away from you and AWAY FROM CREATURES, then follow up with SS ( you need mana at level 7, perhaps buy soul scream ring).
Enhanced Marchers = Provides attack speed, movement speed and the ability to phase. This phasing ability is important as it makes it MUCH easier to follow with BF.
Runed Axe = giving mana to farm with BF, and a AOE melee damage for SS.
Whispering Helm = Life steal, mainly for survival.
Savage Mace = Excellent for enemies that like to teleport away ( ministun attack).
Wing Bow = Massive damage boost, survivability and attack speed.
Flayer = Massive damage.
Symbol of Rage : Life steal, Health and damage.
Soul Scream Ring: enough mana at level 7 to perform Ultimate and BF one after the other.
Shrunken head : Universal Item.
Charged Hammer : damage.
Hack and Slash : movement speed, attack speed and an attack modifier.
The possibilities are endless any of the items above, make Swift Blade into a end game carry.
