Visage 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.
Visage is able to deal a large amount of damage both to heroes and to their buildings. Grave Chill makes it easier for him to last hit any creeps during the laning stage, as well as to chase enemies. Soul Assumption allows Visage to trade blows more effectivly, which makes this character very dangerous in the early game. Gravekeeper's Cloak increases the hero's durability, and with buying Aghanim's Shard it will allow him to stand almost any enemy attack. Summon Familiars allows the character to summon Gargoyles, which help Visage quickly defeat almost any enemy in the early and mid game as well as speed up the demolition of enemy buildings. Purchasing of Aghanim's Scepter grants the hero the Silent as the Grave ability, which will buff him and his summoned units, allowing the character to freely move and unexpectedly attack an enemy.
If the restless soul tries to escape its fate, Necro'lic brings the fugitive back. Visage stalks its prey without mercy or end, willingly destroying all which may give shelter to the fugitive essence. And while the dead may be revived, it is only a matter of time before Visage finds and returns them to their proper place.
