Strategy[edit]

Tread Switching[edit]

Tread switching is a common practice used by players to get the most out of their stats. Conserving Health and Mana are some examples of the benefits of Tread Switching.

Having Strength:

Having Intelligence:

  • ON will decrease the amount of relative Mana spent
  • OFF will increase the effectiveness of flat Mana regeneration (e.g. Bottle, Clarity, Ring of Basilius, etc.)

So in practice, turn on Strength treads when taking damage, Intelligence treads when casting spells, and Agility treads when regenerating using flat regeneration (such as Bottle which regenerates both Health and Mana at the same time). When attacking, switch to the Primary Attribute of your hero to increase damage output.
