Notes

Strategy[edit]

Orchid Malevolence is useful in four, often overlapping, situations:

  1. Heroes with no disable that rely on the silence to ensure their target cannot escape. They will generally have the movement speed to chase their target down.
  2. Heroes that benefit from the increased mana regeneration and intelligence.
  3. Heroes that gain a noticeable damage output due to the increased attack speed.
  4. Heroes that want to provide a silence to their team to shut down key enemy heroes.
