UPDATE: Slark pounces from the shadows

posted by Blue_Knight,
It's patch night once again, and Valve have updated the Dota 2 test client, making a few new interface additions, fixing a couple of bugs, and also bringing to us one of DotA's quirkiest heroes: Slark.
ADVERTISING:


With his potential to lock an enemy in place with his Pounce skill, coupled with some decent burst damage from Dark Pact and the ability to temporarily steal his opponents stats with Essence Shift, and of course his signature ultimate skill - Shadow Dance - that allows him to attack whilst retaining his invisibility, Slark is one of the game's most unique heroes, and is highly adept at killing enemies in one-on-one situations.
