Dark Seer is a melee character. His primary attribute is intelligence. The hero is mainly taken as a hardlaner. Most effective in the early and mid game.
The hero has a high farming speed due to the Ion Shell ability. Dark Seer is extremely effective in team fights thanks to his Wall of Replica and Vacuum abilities, making him able to gain advantage in many battles. Surge is perfect for both initiating a fight and retreating, and also synergizes well with the Normal Punch ability, which appears after purchasing Aghanim's Scepter. Aghanim's Shard makes Surge even more effective.
Ish'Kafel is able to defeat enemies with the power of his mind, but once he miscalculated. Unable to cope with the enemies, Dark Seer locked them in an illusory maze, and after destroying it, he remained in this world forever. Now he is committed to proving his worth as a military strategist, and vows to show that he's the greatest tactician this strange new world has ever seen.
