Leshrac is a ranged character. His primary attribute is intelligence. The hero is mainly taken as a midlaner. Most effective in the early and mid game.
Leshrac proves to be a strong hero in team fights as well as in battles against illusion heroes and summoners, since all of the hero's abilities have an AoE effect. Split Earth gives the character the ability to stun multiple enemies at once, and with the purchase of Aghanim's Shard, the area of the spell becomes a dangerous zone for enemies. Leshrac is also good at demolition of buildings. Diabolic Edict allows him to quickly destroy enemy structures even in the early game, and in combination with Lightning Storm and Pulse Nova, to deal a huge amount of damage to opponents in almost any fight. After purchasing Aghanim's Scepter, the hero gets the Nihilism ability, which allows him to significantly increase the magic damage dealt to enemies.
Leshrac is an entity torn from the heart of nature. Once a great philosopher who sought the meaning of existence, he plumbed the depths of nature with the haunted Chronoptic Crystals, and was forever altered by the hideous mysteries thereby revealed to him. He alone sees the evil truth of reality, and has no use for those who believe the cosmos reserves a special reward for those who practice benevolence.
