Notes

Strategy[edit]

Orb of Venom is a cheap item pickup for Melee heroes that have free item slots to help them chase enemies and harass in lane. Most notably, Lone Druid's Spirit Bear benefits from having an Orb of Venom greatly because of the amount of long distance attacking the Spirit Bear is able to do.
