Tips & Tricks

1. The no brainer one, maximize your Reaper's Mark, spread it on everyone you can, keep it 100% uptime on 3 targets if possible (max).

2. Your Reaper's Mark applies to objectives, bosses, just not on structures.

3. Wraith Strike puts you behind the enemy when you teleport, use it to effectively stop enemies from escaping, body blocking that is.

4. Death Shrough flies slow, aim accordingly in front of enemy for it to land.

5. You can try Death Shrouding E and then Wraith Striking W to teleport when trying to escape.

6. Use Wraith Strike W to avoid skill shots!

7. If you play Last Rites ultimate, a marking will appear over a hero's head when it will die from it if you apply it.
