Traxex-The Drow Ranger
Background History : 

Traxex was a skilled archer in her oppressive underground homeland, the Underdark, until she grew sick of her kin's evil ways and fled to the surface world. As a part of her resolution, she joined the Sentinel, bringing her excellent marksmanship to the fray. Some of her abilities include stripping magical beings of their voices, and enchanting her arrows with an icy cold. While such powers are valuable, her true origin will never cease to linger around in the judging eyes of others.

  • Pick Traxex if your team need Carry / you are pros in farming.
  • Don't pick Traxex if your enemy have to many Gankers or Nuker / your team have to many agi hero.


Traxex is flexible, you can go anywhere. Choose wisely, usually, i'll go solo or go with support type hero(At least, they have stun).

Early game's Strategy

Traxex is Carry hero which will dangerous on late game. So just keep farming safely. Carry heroes's way to success is just two : Die < 3 and Farming until die XD

Mid game's Strategy

In mid game, traxex usually still like chubby. it still cute and doesn't often killed enemy. Don't be so sad if your just got a few kill. Still focus on farming. Just Lothar / yasha doesn't give you much advantage to evolve into Beast !  farming until you got at least 2 Luxury Item.

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy

When on war or ganking, Traxex is easy to use. We just need to seek enemy with a lowest HP, silence him and if possible silence him with another, then hit him until die. That will become some of looping until your life in danger. The tips is just one. Try to stay on the fog in the war. This helping you to get less damage from nukers and to ease your escape.

Late game's Strategy

Heroes always show up in last. It's carry's responsibility to drive his team to victory. In equally strong late game, The death of carry can rotate all of the road game. Don't be so proud of yourself and do committed suicide by come to the tiger's nest alone. XD
