Leshrac Skill Build

Level 1: Split Earth
Level 2: Diabolic Edict / Lightning Storm
Level 3: Diabolic Edict / Lightning Storm
Level 4: Lightning Storm / Diabolic Edict
Level 5: Diabolic Edict / Lightning Storm
Level 6: Lightning Storm / Diabolic Edict
Level 7: Diabolic Edict / Lightning Storm
Level 8: Lightning Storm / Diabolic Edict
Level 9: Lightning Storm / Diabolic Edict
Level 10: Pulse Nova
Level 11: Pulse Nova
Level 12: Split Earth
Level 13: Split Earth
Level 14: Split Earth
Level 15: Stats
Level 16: Pulse Nova
Levels 17-25: Stats

1.25 seconds stun is enough in the early minutes, so take Split Earth just 1 level. Pulse Nova waste her mana, so don't take it before level 10 if she hasn't equip item increasing mana and mana regeneration yet. Lightning Storm and Diabolic Edict are good combination to clear the way and destroy tower. Pulse Nova are good skill in a big war to clear opponent creeps so your team can focus to attack enemy heroes.

Leshrac Item Build

 1. 3x Ironwood Branch + Mantle of Intelligence + 2 set of Tangos + 2 Clarity Potion or just empty Bottle
 2. Void stone if you can harass your enemy/enemies and can keep your hp full. Point booster / Ring of Health if you are being harassed.
3. Point booster if you didn't have it + Boots of Speed + Finish Perseverance.
4. Finish Phase Boots (+ Town Portals) or Boots of Travel

Leshrac's core item should be like this:


Perseverance is bough for regenerating hp & mana. Point Booster to increase hp and mana little much more so he is little harder to kill and can cast spells without lack of mana. Boots of Travel will help you assist your friend and killing enemies anywhere when needed. Empty Bottle (optional) is standard item in tourney game. It is used to restore hp and mana in few seconds and to get the rune.

Luxury Items

+ + + +

In my opinion, Bloodstone is created for Leshrac aside of Storm. The hp boost and mana boost is welcomed , but the main advantage for having Bloodstone is the mana regeneration. If you can have enough charge, you can cast Pulse Nova without thinking about the mana. Aghanim is equipped to increase Pulse-Nova's damage.

Guinsoo is used to disable an enemy hero. Shiva's guard increase his armor so he is harder to kill and also to cast Arctic Blast for slowing enemies around him and clear the way faster. All of his skills are active so he doesn't need attack damage.

Being AoE damage dealer, he probably will be focused by enemy carry (which mainly rely on normal attack) on the clash, Ghost Scepter will be your way out. If you manage to get Ethereal Blade, you can banish both of him and his enemy and let you land your magic spells while the enemy can't give you any normal attack.

However, if your enemy also consist of AoE damage spells or chain nuker, get BKB instead. Your Ghost Scepter/Ethereal Blade won't help you in those situation. Get Blade Mail if you feel you won't survive even if you get those items. It will make them think twice before attack you and while they hesitate, you can give them some nice damage. If the enemy still focusing on you, well, at least you give him the return damage which is pretty hurt.

Leshrac Strategy

You should pick this hero when your team needs good pusher since he can annihilate creep and tower really fast. Avoid to pick him when there are Doombringer, Enigma, Silencer, Traxex and/or Rooftrellen as your enemy.

He is needed in the mid game to help your team harass/kill the enemies, clearing the way to the tower and destroy them. He need to level up as soon as possible to maximize his skills. So, get him the solo lane if possible.

In early minutes, cast Lightning Storm for farming and harassing. Cast Diabolic Edict when reaching tower and there is no enemy's creep in the way to destroy tower. When you are attacked suddenly by your enemy, cast Split Earth and try to kill your enemy with all of your skills or just run away if you are afraid about Leshrac's death.

In the mid game, you should help your team to harass/kill your enemy/enemies and destroy tower. Cast Lightning Storm, Split Earth, then Lightning Storm again (+ Pulse Nova and Diabolic Edict if necessary) to kill your enemies together with your team. If you have reached tower, cast Diabolic Edict to destroy it.

In a big war, cast all of your skills, especially Pulse Nova, as fast as you can, including Diabolic Edict before you get silenced or disabled. Clear enemy creeps as fast as possible so your team can focus to attack enemy heroes. Be careful about lack of mana. Deactivate Pulse Nova when there is neither enemy creep nor enemy hero. Cast Hex and/or Arctic Blast if you have Guinsoo and/or Shiva's Guard. Cast Ether Blast to an enemy's carry hero if you have Ethereal Blade.
