Wraith King is a melee character. His primary attribute is strength. The hero is mainly taken to the easy lane as a carry. Most effective in the mid game.
A fairly strong hero during the laning stage thanks to the Vampiric Aura and Mortal Strike abilities, which allow him to last hit creeps and trade blows with enemy heroes, as well as push the lane and fast farm the woods. Reincarnation is the character's key ability, which makes him a good frontlaner. Wraithfire Blast is effective during initiation, and with Aghanim's Shard it gets an AoE effect each time Reincarnation is triggered. Aghanim's Scepter prolongs any fight and almost always allows allies to cast the nessessary spells.
For untold years, King Ostarion built a kingdom from the remains of his enemies. On the millennial solstice, he performed a rite of transformation and was reborn as the Wraith King. Now he rarely spends a moment on his glowing throne but strides out with sword drawn, demanding a fealty that extends far beyond death.
