Hero Strategy

Make use of Spark Wraiths to secure creep last hits, especially ranged creep.

If an opponent splits away from creeps or his ally, you can Flux him and follow up with right-clicks and Spark Wraiths.

Use Spark Wraiths to scout the opponents and protect yourself while farming.

Make sure not to feed Tempest Double to opponents as it gives away a lot of gold and experience.

Use Tempest Double as frequently as possible to split push the sidelanes and damage buildings.

Avoid being part of the teamfights from the very start until you get first major item that will tank you up.

Whenever opponents teleport back on a hero or two to address your split push, look to fight the remaining opponents, smoke up or take Roshan.

Counter Strategy

Arc Warden's Flux does no damage to you if you are close to another unit.

Arc Wardens Tempest Spark Wraith takes two seconds to charge which gives you time to dodge it.

Units inside Arc's Warden's Magnetic Field can be hit if you are inside of it or have evasion piercing items.

Arc Warden is a weak laner. Pressure him early on.

Arc Warden's Tempest Double gives a lot of gold and experience. Kill it if possible.

Arc Warden farms the jungle a lot. Plant deep wards and gank him. Also block off camps with sentries.

Buy gap closing items to get on top of Arc Warden.

Boots of Travel allow to defend against Arc Warden's split-pushing and to quickly rejoin the team.
