Who is the best hero to climb 2k Support? in General Discussion

    2k is special in the sense that sometimes you REALLY can't trust your cores to farm hard or not throw with bad decisions. I'm talking blatantly bad decisions like chase a pos 5 with no vision etc.

    I've had some medium success with Warlock and Shaman?

    What is the best heroes and playstyle to climb 2k as a support?


    hélas hélas...

      basically, healbots

        Think of a support hero that punishes blatant bad decisions.

        Answer: Techies.
        Learn how to play that hero and watch 4 enemy cores walk on your mines repeatedly.
        Easy climb to 3k.

              Also had succes with Wyvern. First item mana boots, dissasemble for aether lense and then just stay back and throw your ult in. Good combo with Jugg on safe lane


                WW warlock lion shaman.
                But goku is right if you master techies he is da best, ez mmr.


                  You need supports with high dmg to deny those lane creeps so the opponent carry gets nothing. Then if you cant deny, then go harass until the opponent leaves his lane. Chances are that the opponent will harass you very greatly nowadays compared to in the past. So you need a jungle option for yourself if you lose the lane, as most carries cant jungle that fast. There used to be an item iron talon that was so broken they removed it.

                  Some supports that always have a strategy no matter how bad the lane goes and yet fulfills all criteria above: Jakiro, Dark Seer, Invoker, Viper, Shaman, Witch Doctor, Venomancer.....

                  There are somemore, especially one which I shall not reveal. Basically your carries farm so slow you always have excess creeps sitting around. So in 2k bracket you want to cover those weak spots that your carries have instead of blaming them.


                    When you play heroes like Shaman or Treant you should aim for at least 10 denies or more otherwise you are just wasting your time. People like you need to play core more often to train your last hitting and denying skills so that you realize what core players need in the lane.


                      WW ult is the most op ult in the game, I don't think of any ult that is better than this shit(maybe dark willow)

                        AA ulti is the best in the game. No regen, No healing, No armlet toggle, No low hp shenanigans, No attribute shift -> that by itself counters so many cores + it has global range with increasing aoe.

                          if your 2k support all you need to do is ganking and backup them try use hero like earthspirit or gyro roaming

                                  Yep, just checked out this topic since last night when that "internal server error" thingy pops out after commenting here lol

                                  Anyways, playing with dw on your bracket is so fun you can literally kill anyone when you hit lv 6 if you know what you are doing. XD
