What are global and AEO abilities in Dota 2?

Global Abilities Dota 2Each hero in Dota 2 has unique spells and every single spell has a high potential if used perfectly. In Dota 2 two abilitiy types exist: active and passive. Active abilities require instruction from the player and passive abilities work on its own.

Global abilities are rare abilities, and only a few heroes acquire it in Dota 2. It means that the full Dota 2 map is somehow effected. Global spells do not have a range limit. For example, the Zeus ulti damages all of the 5 enemy heroes with a lightning bolt out of the sky no matter where they are. They get instantly shot and are made visible on the map. Global abilities are special abilities and often the ultimate spell of a hero.

AOE Abilities are abilities that can affect an area of effect instead of one single target. These spells also can kill multiple enemies at the same time. If a few AOE spells are combined together it can destroy a full enemy team. Check out the table above to find good synergies for your party.Dota 2 AOE Spells

What are the famous Global Combos in Dota 2?

  • Dota Combo 1: Offensive Damage Team: The most famous combo in Dota 2 is to use all of the global spells at the same time and is called the Dota 2 Global Killer Tactic. It requires Zeus ulti, Spectre ulti, and Nature’s Prophet ulti. This means a huge damage output in seconds and Spectre can hunt down low hp enemies. Super effective in matchups with low hp enemies.
  • Dota Combo 2: Protective Global Team: Wait for the team fight and if it starts, use the global Omni Knight ultimate, when it is nearly over, activate the Silencer ultimate and all enemies will have serious problems. Meanwhile, you can use Chen ultimate for the heal and Centaur ultimate to escape in the end. If done well this combination could possibly safe anyone in a fight.

How to increase the cast range of spells in Dota 2?

Dota 2 has multiple features through which players can increase the cast range of hero abilities.

Many heroes have an increased cast range or increased AOE cast range trough the Dota 2 Talent Tree. Also the item Aether lens increases the cast range of 80% of the spells by 250. It requires two items and one recipe to build this item: Energy Booster + Void stone + Recipe. Aether lens is commonly used on support heroes. Below is the list of heroes on which Aether Lens affects a lot.

Long Pudge Hook

  • On Pudge, it gives a massive boost to Meat Hook and Pudge can also use its Ulti from a range.
  • Rubick can steal spells from a larger distance. Moreover, the range of Telekinesis and Fade Bolt also increases.
  • Ogre Magi can use his Fireblast to stun the enemy by even staying out of its range.
  • Nyx Assassin has good movement speed while being in its Vendetta form with Aether lens the range of its impale spikes will get longer. It can stun multiple enemies at the same time.
  • Lion has four active abilities, and Aether lens improves all of them. He can become a high range stunner, nuker and attacker.
  • Skywrath Mage is a dominating hero for players that have fast hands. They can make their enemy suffer by using Aether lens. Combo: Ancient Seal + Concussive Shots + Ancient Seal + Arcane Bolt = The Enemy hero is dead as hell. 😉

When is the Best Time to use AOE Spells in Dota 2?

AOE spells are meant to be in Dota 2 to affect enemies in an area. Most AOE spells are stronger than usual spells as well as they are also harder to use. AOE spells consume more mana than usual spells and most of the time have a high cooldown. It is efficient to use AOE spells in an area where more than two enemies are standing or a lot of creeps are involved.

The perfect moment to use AOE spells requires teamplay. One player should always use active spells to gather enemies to one area, like Darkseer’s Vacuum or Magnus Reverse Polarity Ultimate. That allows to even hit 5 enemy heroes at the same time and can make tremendous damage to win the game!

A strong beneficial example of AOE Spell heroes is Lion. After getting Aghanim’s Spectre you can use Lion’s Ulti in an area. Each death with Ulti gives 1 charge and each charge adds 40 damage to the Ulti. If you have Enigma or Magnus in your team and they can successfully capture all the enemy heroes. This is the perfect time to get a Rampage in just one hit trough AOE spells.

Every spell in Dota is useful, and the main thing is how you use it. Train hard and use nice Dota 2 hero combos together – it’s fun! 😉
