Icarus Phoenix Dota
Icarus Phoenix is the newly introduced hero in Dota 6.70 map by Icefrog. It's a strength based hero which is added in sentinel. Icarus Pheonix is added in strength pool which is an strange act by Icefrog but anyway it's a great hero with good spells and eye candy graphics. You can read Icarus Phoenix hero details, Item builds and skill builds here.

phoenixPhoenix Introduction:
Ancient scriptures spoke of seven sacred emanations of light, and of their convergence in great conflict. The collision of these rays upon the mortal realm created a pyre of the highest purity, giving birth to the mythical Phoenix. As a manifestation of divine flames, Icarus can discharge either flames of death and destruction beam of energy that he can emit can incinerate whole armies from across the battlefield. Unafraid to utilize his own life-force in order to vanquish his enemies, Icarus can also harness the direct power of the sun to create stellar explosion.

Icarus, Phoenix Stats:
Main Attribute: Strength
Alliance: Sentinel

Agility: 12 + 1.3 per level
Intelligence: 18 + 1.8 per level
Strength: 22 + 2.9 per level.

Starting Armor: 0
Movement Speed: 290
Attack Range: 500

Icarus, Phoenix Abilities/Spells:

1. Icarus Dive (Hotkey: D):

Phoenix dives forward in an arc with a fixed distance in the targeted direction, dealing damage and disarming any units he comes into contact with, and then orbiting back to his original position. If during the 2 second duration of this spell Phoenix casts another spell, the dive ends. Phoenix gains magic immunity for this brief dive period as well. Costs 10% of current HP to cast.
Damage: 100/150/200/250
Disarm Duration: 2/2.5/3/3.5

Travel Range: 1400
Travel Width: 500
Total Travel Time: 2 seconds

Cooldown: 40
Manacost: 100
HP Cost: 10% of current HP

Note: You can also press the same hotkey anytime to end the dive
2. Fire Spirits (Hotkey: F)

Born out of his own life force, Icarus creates 4 fire spirits to fly alongside him. Each spirit slowly grows in power and can be used to damage his enemies or heal his allies. Costs 10% of your current HP to cast.

Maximum Growth Time: 10 seconds

Spirit Minimum Damage/Heal:10/15/20/25
Spirit Maximum Damage/Heal: 40/60/80/100
Spirit AOE: 400

Subability Cast Range: 1200
Manacost: 75
Cooldown: 35
HP Cost: 10% of current HP


Note: The target subability fires off each spirit one at a time. It has no cooldown. If you let them expire without ordering them, they sacrifice themselves where they are.
3. Sun Ray (Hotkey: R)

Drawing from his own inner fire, Icarus expels a huge beam of light at the cost of his own life energy. The beam slows and damages enemies for a percentage of their life. Costs 25% of current HP to activate.

Upon casting, you lose the ability to attack or move directly. Ray extends out to the first hero it finds and burns it and a very small area around it.

Can be toggled on and off.

Slow: 14/20/26/32%
Slow duration: 2 seconds
Damage per second: 10/20/30/40 + 5% of Target's Max Life

Activation Health Cost: 25% Current HP
Activation Mana Cost: 10
Overtime Mana Cost: 4% of Max


You have another sub ability that you can toggle to allow you to drift towards the direction of the ray.

Note: You control the direction of the ray using right click and the beam will move towards that angle.
Note 2: Automatically shuts off if you are silenced or stunned
4. Ultimate - Supernova (Hotkey: V)

The Phoenix willingly ends his current life for the chance to be reborn. Transforms into a burning sun that scorches enemies within 1000 range. The sun can be attacked by enemy heroes; if it is destroyed, the Phoenix dies as well. However, if the sun survives for 6 seconds all enemies in range will be stunned and the Phoenix will return to life fully regenerated.

Hero Attacks Required (to kill sun): 5/7/9
Duration: 6

Burn AOE: 1000
Damage: 60/80/100 dps
Stun: 1.5/2/2.5

Cooldown: 110

Anonymous said...

Too Imba

Anonymous said...

lol this here is quite on a test stage yet... they should rework 3rd and last skill...
3rd... ur too slow and too vulnerable when casted
Ulti... any dps will only take less than 3-4sec to kill you ( slark/luna/jarakal/(URSA and IO combo) = less than 2 seconds)

Anonymous said...

His abilities cost % of HP so giving him lots of HP does mitigate some damage. Example at 1000hp, first kill cost 100 life, at 2000hp first skill costs 200 life. Making lots of bracers, I think Black King Bar will prevent self damage from abilities (if they are magical).

So early go for
bracerx4
PT(str)
vanguard

late you can got for HoT, armlet, BKB

He doesn't need mana, so bloodstone is useless. Pure strength build is the best.

Anonymous said...

I have tricks on phoenix =) love it
if u use dive you actually dive 2 a targeted area and u will return on the place u have used dive...
note:YOU CAN DIVE IN THE TARGETED PLACE AND STOP FROM COMING BACK.
like the waveform of morphling... when u use waveform u will stop on targeted place. YOU CAN ALSO USE DO IT ON ICARUS DIVE.
how?
when u use dive u can use arcane boots while diving , u will stop on the place u have activate ur arcane boots.
hahaha hope u understand =) im from mexico.
i hate using Icarus dive when catching up on an enemy. so i better use arcane b. to stop. after using dive...

I wana see sun ray build :)

Anonymous said...

nice hero however icarus armor is too low.
anyway this hero can't be controlled by noobs that want easy kill and easy win.

and icarus can fly!!

Anonymous said...

I think tuskar is much easir to play with, althought you can give some nice kills with dive and supernova.
get to your enemies in the snowball with tuskar then ult + his frozen sigil, the enemies will hardly ever break it, specially when it's in a high level, you're most likely to get at least one kill with this.
and as for his 2nd skill i don't think it's a good thing to get it in early / mid game, if you can control sun ray it is just too good to be missed.

Anonymous said...

not really imba but if it come to gank this hero is good with treant or furion. some stunner will be nice as well.

and item build for this go for
Power thread.
vanguard.
linken.
HOT.
Radiance.
a divine is good choice, but just be carreful.
and sometimes i prefer go for a skadi..

Suichiro Kram said...

icarus is so ot like his sun ray. i prefer to build items which adds hp to him. i also suggest for anybody uses icarus to harass in early games without using skills. skills can be used for creepings. if your lanes is in the middle, courier and bottle is useful. but if ur a sidelaner, gauntlets are more useful or either more damage because u can use ur 2nd skill for healing purpose.



skill build for early games:
1st skill
2nd skill
1st skill
2nd skill
1st skill
ultimate (for regeneration purposes)
1st skill


my item build:
B o T
S & y
H o T 2x
Blood Stone
Shivas or Cuirass (optional)


speed, health , mana and armor important..

Anonymous said...

This hero is a little bit stupid to play with.. It's skill is still not enough, long CD waiting you can't even use this in 1v1, it's mainly for support only.. How can you even kill with this hero? I mean if you don't have the proper item build ICARUS is USELESS.. Build a Dagon and make it up to lvl5, for sure you're a stupid noob.. Trying to kill..

Anonymous said...

wehh the 1st and 3rd to kill use vangurd to reg IDIOT

Anonymous said...

what about skadi, S and Y, Radiance, Cuirass, HoT, and Buriza?? is that good??

Anonymous said...

magic stick
soul ring
bracer
power tread (STR)
then go for radiance.

use dive and heal early on, take 1 sun ray before lvl 6. Sun ray hurts more and more later on, but is a hazard to use early on (it's doable, but kinda pressing it unless you have a stunning/slowing friend focusing on the same target)

dive is still somewhat imba imho because at lvl 4 it disarms for 4s...

Treads
bracer
Bot
cuirass

Linken !

Anonymous said...

my item build start with 1 bracer and some branches and tango
(this hero could play on any line but I prefer to play mid , because it could easly capture rune while your enemy runing for that)

build power thread and second bracer(all you need is just strength)
just upgrade first and second skill
and my combo is attack your enemy and get attacked
get back and attack creeps while you're activating dragons
just before your dragons are blinkg get hidden and at the time you think they going to blow up dive on your enemy and stop there you will nuke him with a 600 dmg ;)
he will totaly fucked up(this combo is complete aoe damage so if U master this U can make a 600 AOE damage at level 7)

get ultimate as soon as U can

your next item should be vanguar or HOD(depend on your enemy)
(guess why not linken;) couse U are strength newbies and U dont need mana on this hero killer)
U can build a ring of bassilus on early game if U need some mana and armor ;)

now U can farm for heart or assault(I prefer heart)

if U need to play dps role go and buy a helm of dominator after vanguard

he's not a good dps or ultimate tank , but his a incredible support and disabler reacher and finisher :D and even battle timer
(he can do anything if U play this hero well)

sa totoo lang paps, kaya nya nevermore to sa mid! alamin nyo lang kung paano gamitin. pti kahit isang dive okay lang pang habol lang yan. palakasin mo lang 3rd at 2nd skill mo para heal. 3rd skill: slow + damage. pakunatin mo lang para masakit 3rd skill mo! malakas 'tong hero na 'to! tapos, ulti, sa clah lang, para 'di focus sayo ung atack. promise malakas 'to!

Anonymous said...

Patay ka sa 1v1, kahit anu hero, early game, down kay phoenix, kahit tuskar. . Ung firespirits, may damage un mga dre, 400 un, aoe, coupled with dive, 240 damage, itigil mo ung dive sa mukha nung hero.

Bale 640 na nabawas, eh ang mga agi, mga one-k lang hp sa level 11, so red kagad un, eh may dagon ka pa. Gg na. Di ka pa naguulti nun.

Malakas ang Phoenix sa 1v1, kahit sf lamug dto. Pero down phoenix sa mga hero na nag sisilence.

Note: ten seconds ung fire spirits,you should wait til the birds are mature, para pag dive-in mo, sasabog na ung mga ibon. Tapos, pag di pa sumabog, phaseboots, chase tapos hampas. .

Item build: three gauntlets, one ring of protection (gagawin mo tong basillus, para sa mana, ung dalawang gauntlets, urn of shadows, to make for the mana-drain ma gagawin mu everytime na papatay ka ng agi). Ang end game ng phoenix: Dagon + Phase Boots + Blood Stone + Tarrasque + Cuirrass. (possible yan, contrary to what people say over here, phoenix has good attack, poor attackspeed lang, but really good attack damage. So it's really easy to go creepings.)

sa skill, wag nyo dagdagan ung sunray pag 1v1, worthless un, instead, add on bonus point. Fire spirits lang dagdagan nyo tsaka dive.

Aw. Lotars is useless, use ethereal so heroes will not hit you in 3 sec. My build for Icarus is BoT, satanic, butterfly, ethereal, linken, mjolnir. I use Icarus as a hitter and support. Add me on facebook for more strategies on other heroes.
