Pangolier is a melee character. His primary attribute is agility. The hero is mainly taken as a hardlaner. Most effective in the early and mid game.
The character has a number of abilities useful in team fights. Lucky Shot allows him to weaken a target unit and make it unable to attack. This ability is well combined with Swashbuckle, which weaken multiple enemies at once. Using Shield Crash in a cluster of enemies, will allow Pangolier to ignore a huge amount of incoming damage. Aghanim's Scepter significantly increases the damage dealt by the hero in a fight, which makes him effective throughout the entire game. Rolling Thunder is an initiating ability that is most effective in narrow gaps and places with obstacles. It allows the hero to control multiple enemies at once. Aghanim's Shard grants the character the Roll Up ability, which will allow Pangolier to survive almost any situation.
“A life of adventure is the only life worth living,” the exploits of Donté Panlin still manage to raise the eyebrows of even the most hedonistic of swordsmen. There is no monster he won’t slay. No creature he won’t woo. No tyrant he won’t stand against. And no noble immune to his silver tongue.
