Silencer is a ranged character. His primary attribute is intelligence. The hero is mainly taken as a midlaner. Most effective in the mid game.
The hero is especially dangerous for enemies who rely on their spells. The Arcane Curse ability can deal damage, the duration of which increases both with the number of spells cast by the enemy and during silence. Last Word prevents a selected opponent from using his abilities, and with the purchase of Aghanim's Scepter, the effect will be applied to several opponents at once. The spell deals extra damage based on the difference in intelligence between Silencer and the target. Glaives of Wisdom allows the hero to deal additional physical damage stealing the victim's intelligence. With the purchase of Aghanim's Shard, the ability will become even more dangerous in team fights, as it will deal damage to nearby enemies too. Global Silence is very effective in team fights. The ability is perfect for both initiation and saving an ally.
Nortrom was the culmination of two-hundred years of careful breeding. For a long time he remained silent and incapable of doing magic. The teachers did not recognize him and other children laughed at him, but at the last exam, Nortrom silenced the young mages one by one and defeated them in single combat, until he alone stood as champion of the Aeol Drias.
