Windranger is a ranged character. Her primary attribute is intelligence. The hero is mainly taken as a midlaner. Most effective in the mid game.
Fairly mobile hero who is able to effectively fight single enemies. Thanks to the Focus Fire ability, Windranger is able to deal a large amount of damage to a target unit, and after getting necessary items, the spell retains its relevance even in the late game. Shackleshot allows the hero to initiate an attack, and Powershot to last hit an enemy even at a great distance. Powershot is also effective in farming lane and neutral creeps. Windrun allows Windranger to stand most attacks. This spell is especially effective against physical attack heroes, and buying Aghanim's Scepter will make the character even more elusive. Gale Force is an effective team fight ability that appears after purchasing Aghanim's Shard. It allows the character to hold opponents in a large area making it more difficult for them to attack or retreat.
Of the whole family, only the newborn Lyralei survived the terrible storm. In the quiet after the storm, the wind itself took notice of the lucky infant crying in the grass. In the years that followed, the wind returned occasionally to the child's life, watching from a distance while she honed her skills. She moves with blinding speed, as if hastened by a wind ever at her back. With a flurry of arrows, she slaughters her enemies, having become, nearly, a force of nature herself.
