    He's an amazing counter-pick against quite a few mid heroes. Ever since they revamped his skills and made his Last Word an amazingly annoying spell, he's an even better mid. Last Word is pretty much a win/win spell, either you cast one of your spells and take damage OR you don't cast anything take damage anyway AND get disarmed. Couple that with curse of the silent and there's goes all your precious mana.

    Although I will say his ganks are ok at best, even with the global silence if there is no form of hard CC to help you kill the target its frustrating.

    Force Staff, Orchid, Sheepstick and you're good! Hell if you have enough farm Ethereal Blade is rather fun on him also.

    His ult is very frustrating to play against. Make all preparations, get ready to cast everything, then BAM. Whole team is silenced.

    Awesome patch. I'll be working on patch coverage soon. What kind of things would you guys be interested in reading about?

    I will include going over major changes and their effects, new hero (skills, strategy, thoughts) and general thoughts about the patch.

    I agree he's one of those heroes that is amazing 1v1 mid, but I don't think that's enough for him to see competitive play (at least for becoming a stable pick) - current "midders" like TA or Batrider can easily react to the Curse of the Silent/Last Word without losing too much, and are much better at ganking, but still as a pick he's alright on mid


    Force Staff, Orchid, Sheepstick and you're good! Hell if you have enough farm Ethereal Blade is rather fun on him also.
    I'd throw there also Rod of Atos, it's really an underappreciated item and gives a lot of HP and can be devastating. Rod of Atos as an alternative to Orchid I'd say because Force Staff is a must - Silencer is not really a mobile hero whatsoever.

    Well the only reason to really skip out on a Rod of Atos is pretty much for the active on Orchid which gives you a nice damage buff when you are trying to kill that certain hero. 11 seconds of total silence is brutal and usually if you're doing good on Silencer its just better to skip Atos for the Orchid anyway, although I will say if you are lacking a bit Rod of Atos is a great pick. But once you get the Sheepstick into the mix Rod of Atos gets kicked to the curb. Why use a slow when you can just hex them?

    I wouldn't say quite useless, with good coordination his ultimate is literally devastating in team fights. I completely understand where you're coming from, though.

    Have not received a reply yet, which is not surprising as the forum users and homepage users are different, however, if you were to read patch coverages, what would you like to read about?

    He's not useless and u can't really play him as a hard carry (unless u totally wreck face with him) .He's just picked cause he's really annoying to play against and he can beat a lot of the popular mid heroes.If u want to play a good int carry just play obsidian,he's a lot better than silencer as a right click carry and he's just as annoying mid.
