Io, The Guardian Wisp DotA
Io, The Guardian Wisp is a new strength ranged hero added in DotA Allstars 6.68 by IceFrog. Io, The Guardian Wisp is the one the most popular models found in Warcraft 3 and now added to it's famous custom map DotA Allstars v6.68, you can read Io, Guardian Wisp Starategy Guide here including all the DotA The Guardian Wisp Items/Skill Builds.

Io, The Guardian Wisp Stats:

Range: 525
Movement Speed: 295
Hero Type: Strength
Starting Armor: 0
Starting Damage: 33-42

Agility: 14 + 1.6
Strength: 17 + 1.9
Intelligence: 23 + 1.7

Io, The Guardian Wisp Spells:

1. Tether (hotkey: T)
Io tethers himself to an allied unit, granting both units bonus movement speed. Any enemy units that contact the tether will be stunned. The tether will break if it stretches beyond 900 units. Lasts 12 seconds.

Movement Bonus: 20/25/30/35%
Stun Duration: 1.25/1.5/1.75/2.0

Cooldown: 12
Manacost: 40

If you try to tether a unit that is a outside its range (by up to 900) Io will latch on and pull himself closer to the unit.

Tether transfers other states on the hero to the allied unit. This includes Overcharge, Relocate and any time you regenerate hp/mp.

Note: Has a sub ability that lets you break the tether.

Credit: Based on Tether from http://www.playdota.com/forums/215750/intel-sentinel-io-aurora-wisp/

2. Spirits (hotkey: W):
Io summons 5 ancient Spirits over the course of 6 seconds; the Spirits dance around Io in a circle to protect him. If an enemy hero moves close enough to touch a Spirit, the Spirit releases its life energy in a burst, damaging and slowing all enemies in a 300 area of effect. Non hero units only take minor damage upon touching a spirit and do not cause them to explode.

You have two sub abilities. One to move them outwards and one to call them back in. You can stop them at any distance by toggling the ability order.

Damage per Spirit: 25/50/75/100
Slow: 30%

Cooldown: 14
Manacost: 120/130/140/150


3. Overcharge (hotkey: V)
Io draws on more energy than he can safely handle, granting him bonus attack speed, but draining 2.5% of his current HP and MP per second. If Io is tethered to an ally the bonus attack speed is also granted to that ally.

This is a toggle ability.

Attack Speed: 60/80/100/120

Note: This bonus affects a tethered unit as well.


4. Ultimate: Relocate (hotkey: R)
Io temporary relocates himself, along with any tethered hero, to the target location for 12 seconds.

There is a casting delay and the enemy has visual indicators on the minimap and the world of the teleport before it happens.

Cast Delay: 2.5/2.25/2.0
Cooldown: 80/60/40
Manacost: 100

Note: If an allied hero is Tethered, that hero will teleported along with you. You can break the tether at any time to prevent that hero from returning back with you. -disablehelp is available for this ability.

Anonymous said...

Wisp is only powerful when out of range, its skill had slow but no match with someone with blink...........

this hero rock with necromonicon with dagon>.>>>>

Akiha said...

Well i make a good item for it.. its a Strenght type Hero, but it's very low life.. so the item Satanic is good for him because of Lack of HP and this hero has Overload skill(ASPD),.
Well this is my build for this Hero,
1. Threads Strenght(Use:HP,ASPD,10DAMAGE)*Not Phase because i have lothar and 2nd skill has slow
2. Lothar's Edge(Self GB, Escape, and In)
3. Dominator(Dominator so you can live more longer in a clash) after Radiance make it *Satanic*.
4. Radiance (It's good with your 2nd skill DPS for creeps and Hero's)
5. Assault Cuirras(Why?, it's rare to use this item, this hero is very low defense means*Malambot sya kahit STR*) It can also Lower the defense of the Enemies
6. its up to you..
*But*(Eye of Skadi for me) Its not Orb Effect because Guardian Wisp is a Long range STR..
very Advantage:
•HP
•Mana
•Slow

i make Lothar first for a self GB using 2nd and SS then Lothar so they cant see you while using Spirits,
but i hate Those Map hackers that see's you.. haha!

warcraft come to be a super mario

Great Hero.. But... Hard to Play... !!

Anonymous said...

@Akiha i'd prefer BD over lothar

empty bottle middle lane...

Spirit, Relocate, Stat farmer build

sucks at end game (very low base damage at level 25)... stick with supporting allies

requires precision control of spirits, not for noobs

dagon 5 to scare away blinkers

Overcharge was Raijin's old 3rd skill

pick thrall and wisp's ulti is useless.use thrall's glimpse skill when he tele to gank u and wisp will just be send back to where he was.

the next time u pick wisp and see thrall on the other side,please say "DAMN"

Anonymous said...

That doesn't really matter when wisp will still teleport back to that same spot anyways

my skill build up:
tether,2x-spirits,tether,spirits,ss,spirits,2x-tether,oc,ss,2x-oc,stats,oc,stats...

my item build up for wisp:
1. soul ring (dispose at late game)
2. powerthreads (then travel at lategame)
3. dominator (satanic after buriza)
4. crystalis (buriza after butterfly)
5. butterfly
6. MKB
7. item may depend
creeping technique:
at level 7 u will own the creeps, try this:
-use spirits and 3sec b4 expire, ss to lanes with more creeps. spirits will blow and kill all creeps at cd.

oh..im so annoyed by this linken spear thing,why linken block some passive skill's like the skill 2 of sniper..i wish icefrog will change this linken thing...

Anonymous said...

seriously? are you guys trying to steal farm/creeps from your "real carry" heroes with those builds above?

start items :
- 1/2 tango or 1/2 salve
- 1 magic stick (then magic wand)
- 3 gg braches
- chick/wards if needed
then :
- str thread, convert to int based on situation
- bottle, tele back to fountain (ult), fast heal+mana with ur teamate
- for survival : BKB or ghost scepter, depends on enemy heroes, and maybe vanguard
- tele scroll/wards/salve/dust
- try get pipe for sup, or just get more HP, OR save gold for buyback if u are in an endgame tight match..
optional :
- get bassilius and/or headress>>meka if u babysit u'r carry hero

this way, u wont be yelled by your team/clan (if u have one)

bd.....cool

Un Om said...

Tried wisp+tide... wipped out the whole enemy team =)

Mekanism, Arcane Boots for support and Perse for regg, didn't have time or needed to buy anything else...

IMBA, only if you know how to play with it and you have a good support like Pudge or Ursa, even Tide because of his stun...

Anonymous said...
