Fun Ideas to Try in Dota 2 Pubs

While we wait for the next gameplay patch in Dota 2, there are still plenty of fun ideas and interactions to explore in our pubs. Let’s take a look at some unique combos that can shake up your gameplay experience.

Marci and Io Lane Combo

This lane combo featuring Marci and Io is a popular choice in the professional scene. The synergy between these two heroes creates a powerful bond that can be hard to break, especially when they are attacking their opponents.

Tether Tether allows Io to share healing with a connected teammate, while Sidekick boosts attack damage and lifesteal for Marci and her ally. This combination creates a cycle of healing and damage that makes them a force to be reckoned with in the laning stage and beyond.

  • Consider picking up a Wraith Band or a Bracer for Io early on to enhance their laning presence.
  • Marci’s role in this combo is more about creating space rather than farming, so items like Black King Bar and Skull Basher can be beneficial in the mid-late game.

OD and False Promise Combo

Another interesting combo to try out is the interaction between OD and False Promise. When OD has Aghanim’s Scepter, he gains a powerful survivability tool that allows him to take on multiple opponents in a 1v1 scenario.

With False Promise active, OD’s Aghanim’s upgrade ensures that any damage taken below 20% health is blocked and mitigated, making him a tough target to bring down when fighting solo.

  • Remember, this combo is most effective in 1v1 situations, as the damage blocking mechanism relies on a single source of damage.
  • Experiment with timing Aeon Disk and False Promise to maximize the invulnerability window and turn the tide of battle in your favor.
