So you just randomed Venomancer and you only have sixty seconds to learn how to play Venomancer. What will you do? Never fear! This is DotA in :60.
Venomancer is a hideous Lernaean worm with a bile so vile he makes Fukashima look like a microwave oven.
He's got four biotoxic powers, including "Controled Release" -- a discharge of level 4 bio-hazard the CDC would have an interest in.
"Houston, We Have a Problem" is a passive that turns Venomancer into a walking Superfund site.
Cashing in on the dangers of fracking, "Noxious Nematodes" converts the local invertebrates into Franken-monsters.
Ulti-time! Oh, no! That's not good.
With "Controled Release" you can top off someone's gas tank, with "Houston, We Have a Problem" you can recycle your spent scrubbers, with "Noxious Nematodes" you can blockade the protesters, and with "Can it with the Klaxon" you can let one rip like Pop-pop.
So what about items?
He's the one with the bait -- fish for some agility.
He spreads like the plague -- think teleportation!
Power Treads and Aghanim's Scepter are the most popular, but if you want my advice, a butterfly will carry coins to Charon and just to prove your one-dimensional... how about another butterfly.
Thanks for watching this video, good luck in your match, 1950 called... they want their horror movie back.
