[GUIDE]Mortred The Phantom Assasin

Recommended Posts



Born into the reclusive Night Elf order known as the Wardens and shunned by mainstream Night Elf society, Mortred pledged allegiance to the Scourge to take revenge. A perfect blend of strength and speed, the years spent alone in the forests of Ashenvale allowed her to blend into the terrain, appearing phantomlike at times and striking when you least expect it. The deadly precision with which she carries out her attacks have made her a valuable member of the Scourge, and it is clear why she is known asthe Phantom Assassin.



Base HP: 473

Base Mana: 169


Strength - 17 + 2.05

Agility - 23 + 3.15 (Primary)

Intelligence- 13 + 1


Base damage 46-48

Attack range of 100 (melee)

Base Armor 4.3

Movement speed of 310


                          Strengths and Weaknesses



Strongest Critical in the game (4x!)

Has one of the greatest passive skill named Blur (28% evasion)

Most frightening hero if she got the right item

Has a skill to help farm early game



Low starting HP and melee range

Fragile early game

As with all melee heroes, prone to disable-lock

Very low intelligence gain


Your most noticable weakness is your early game fragility. This guide's build will focus on items that will attempt to make the early game easier at an acceptable price, as well as being a worthwhile investment even in the later stages of the game.

Later in the game your power increases drastically through your critical, high Agility gain and chasing ability. If you survive early you will annihilate your foes later on.


                                  Skill Descriptions


Stiffling Dagger


Hurls a dagger which deals minor pure damage and slow the unit's movement speed for a short duration. Deals half damage to heroes.


Level 1 - 40 Damage, 50% Slow. Lasts 1 seconds.

Level 2 - 80 Damage, 50% Slow. Lasts 2 seconds.

Level 3 - 120 Damage, 50% Slow. Lasts 3 seconds.

Level 4 - 160 Damage, 50% Slow. Lasts 4 seconds.


Manacost: 30/25/20/15


On the early games, use this skill to farm, farm and farm. IceFrog give this skill to Mortred at 6.51 only to help her farm. On the late game, this skill is still usefull to slow down the enemy while you chase it. This will be the skill that we will be maxing first.


Phantom Strike

Teleports to a unit and attacks it. Gains 100% attack speed for 3 seconds while attacking that same target. Maximum of 4 attacks.


Level 1 - 30 second cooldown

Level 2 - 20 second cooldown

Level 3 - 10 second cooldown

Level 4 - 5 second cooldown

Can teleport to an ally.

Manacost: 50





The Phantom Assassin becomes hard to see by blurring her body. Some enemy attacks miss.


Mortred unique skill. This skill somehow one of the best passive in the game. With 28% evasion, you will be hard to kill and since you became a giant dot, some noob won’t notify that you already attacked him. Unfortunately, this skill won’t help you against nuker on early game.


Level 1 - 15% dodge/25% Transparency

Level 2 - 20% dodge/50% Transparency

Level 3 - 25% dodge/75% Transparency

Level 4 - 30% dodge/100% Transparency


This is the skill you're going to be using just about all the time. It can be used for last hits, harassing, chasing, and even fleeing.



Coup De Grace



Mortred has refined her hero-killing skills to a high degree. She has a small chance to deal 4 times normal damage on an attack.


Level 1 - 15% chance to 2.0x critical.

Level 2 - 15% chance to 3.0x critical.

Level 3 - 15% chance to 4.0x critical.


This ability gives you the highest DPS in the entire game. A Mortred critical is completely unmatched in strength- nothing compares to it. This is what makes your hero so feared!

17-25. STATS

Your first skill is Phantom Strike, it will help you escape from level 1 ganking. We maxing Stiffling Dagger as fast as possible. This skill will be very usefull during early games. Like the other low HP agility hero, you’re gonna have a hard period of farming in early game. Especially when you’re facing nuker. When you do, use Stiffling Dagger to help you last hitting. Your main focus on early game is farming as much as you can (and don’t die!). Stiffling Dagger also a great skill for harassing. Even though the damage is poor, if you use it when the creeps chase the enemies heroes, the slow will give great damage.


After we max Stifling Dagger, Phantom Strike is next. Those two is give pretty much damage with low mana cost. Since we skip stats, your hp will be low. But Bracers will fill this gap. Coup De Grace is taken early, because this is the one who make everybody feared her.

Basically, your core items will be enough to make your enemy fear you. Your damage output is already high enough. But when the games prolonged, then you will need to grab more items for your survivability, since the enemy is most likely focusing on you. Go for BKB, if your enemy have so many disabler (Rhasta is sucks indeed!). Your evasion won't save you from spells and nukers. Satanic will give you bigger lifesteal and HP, will help you against another DPS hero. Assault Cuirass will greatly increase you IAS and reduction to your enemy armor. Monkey King Bar will also add more damage output from you. Finally, HoT will make you even Godly. When you get all of this items, probably no one will beat you..




Using Mortred means you will have to be very carefull to not let her die. Your primary mission is only to farm and survive. Don’t waste your time by looking early frag, you will get it in the late game. Now then, the first two build items are pretty self-explanatory. Alternatively you could buy a Chicken and Bracer parts/Flask, whatever suits you. Once you do reach your lane quickly take note of your enemy heroes. If you're against two heroes and one of them is a nuker then stay as far back as you can without losing experience.

By the time you're level 16 with your Coup De Grace at level 3 you should have your Treads, Bracers and Battlefury. If you haven't been able to farm that much you're probably going to lose. With Battlefury, your criticals are going to be a major force to be reckoned with, and heroes are going to really start fearing your high damage. Battlefury will also help you fast farming and make great amount money for your luxury.

Your next item is Helm of Dominator and life leech the enemies. The leech will help you survive on battle since the HP regeneration is minor right now. After get your Helm of Dominator search for some Stomper and remember to have your Stomper with you. You'll want him around at all times because he may save your life or net you a kill. If a hero is foolish enough to be running around alone then show him no mercy- there isn't much that can handle you 1v1 at this point except for heroes with high DPS AND disables. As long as you can stick to the hero and keep leeching him he probably won't be able to kill you.

When it comes to team battle, hid yourself. Wait until the battle initiate and quickly jump to the weakest enemy heroes, like Snipers. In the middle of chaos, the enemy will hardly get a quick response to your attack. After get your target, quickly jump into the another enemies with lowest HP. Even if they are fleeing, with Stiffling Dagger and Phantom Strike, you will get them in no time.
