Hero Strategy

Consider swapping lanes if there is a need for sustain and spell immunity on the other side lane.

Omniknight is a fairly weak laner. Focus on creep equilibrium, pulling and zoning opponents' support.

Avoid using Purification only to heal. Secure a ranged creep last hit or damage opponents at the same time.

If you can run down an opponent on the lane and have nothing to dispel, take Hammer of Purity on Level 1.

Avoid showing yourself at the start of the fight as you are the primary target for opponents.

Dispels are a big problem for Omniknight. Be mindful when using Guardian Angel.

Counter Strategy

Omniknights Purification will damage you if you are in melee range of it.

Omniknights Repel applies debuff immunity. Use your disables after it expires.

Focus Omniknight in the fights as he provides saves and sustain for his team.

Spell and items that dispel are great against Omniknights Guardian Angel.

Items that do magical damage are great against Guardian Angel.
