And one of the best reasons why majority of professional DOTA players fear Elder Titan as an enemy is because of his set of skills which can intensively damage a team in just a few seconds and even eliminate them all if executed perfectly.
• Mangix, the Brewmaster
A fearsome fighter in any situation, Brewmaster can turn the tide of battle by splitting into three elemental spirits, each with their own unique abilities.

• Zharvakko, Witch Doctor
Whether his aiding his team with gradual healing, stunning and cursing foes to ensure a kill, or destroying enemies himself with a dance by his mighty ultimate, few can indeed match Witch Doctor’s versatility. With an Aghanim’s Scepter and the right timing, one Death Ward could turn a stunned carry into a liability, with good bounces turning even fights into one-sided affairs.
• Magnus, the Magnataur
Magnus the Magnataur is highly effective in almost every part of the game. By using his second skill and purchasing a Battle Fury, it’s easy for this monster to inflict heavy damage to heroes and even lead them to their deathbed.
