    Drow Ranger? Useless? Yep, you have no idea about this game right now.

    Just play Lifestealer jungle. Hyper-carry, right-clicker, easy as balls. Same for drow, except she isn't as easy as balls in the beginning...and not a jungler ofc.

    Just try to stay away from Nature's Prophet, even though he is technically an easy hero to play. His real strength is split-pushing and putting pressure on the enemy team 24/7. If you can't do that, you are pretty much dead weight, as a new player. Higher level players can make things work in straight on 5v5 fights, but you still gotta get a good feel of him to participate 5v5, without split-pushing at all.

    Watch some replays with [A]dmiralBulldog from Alliance. He plays Nature's Prophet every single game when the hero isn't banned.

    Drow is one of the top pubstompers. Once you get Shadowblade = gg, assuming you know how to play.

    Find enemy > Put your Q on autocast > Shadowblade in fog of war > Get close to enemy and use your AoE silence > Commence rape. They can't use any abilities and they can't escape you because of the insane slow and enormous damage from your R passive. GG, easy game.

    Drow sounds OP on paper.
    But before you start playing, if you don't wanna get utterly destroyed and maybe demoralized, read about every hero, as well as the basic roles. Dota 2 cinema has hero introductions for most of the heroes, which show their skills and sometimes they give useful info about them.

    She is OP too.
    Remember, we are not discussing professional scene here. It's all about pubs and most of the time pubs can be stomped by these champions.

    Sure, in games with less experienced players drow can rape since everyone likes to go solo regardless of their hero and build items that can't counter her.

    The ginger in green, Windrunner?
    Yeah she's fun to play and very versatile.
