Strategy

You can dodge many spells and ranged attacks with Sleight of Fist or by activating Remnants.

You can push out the lane with Flame Guard or Sleight Of Fist as the river runes are about to spawn.

Once you have blight stone, you should start spamming sleight of fist on the enemy mid laner.

Active rune control is important for Ember Spirit's game. You can place a remnant at one rune and run to the other one to secure them.

You can drop and activate Fire Remnants while Sleight of Fisting.

When low on health, you can leave the Fire Remnant behind, teleport to base and activate the remnant.

When leaving remant behind, it is good to drop it in neutral camp or at the rune spot.

Items with proc chance are great for Ember Spirit as they proc frequently during Sleight of Fist.

Ember Spirit is great at penetrating into opponents' backline due to high mobility of Fire Remnants.

If you are struggling to reach the backline aghanims scepter is great at closing the gap and increasing embers mobility.

Ember Spirit is great at splitpushing as he is elusive and can always have a remnant left behind.

Counter Strategy

Flame Guard is most of Ember Spirit's damage early. Pop it with magical damage or dispel it.

Make sure you are controlling power runes against Ember Spirit. He likes to bottle and gank with those.

Avoid clumping up against Sleight of Fist spam.

Items that can root or stun elusive Ember Spirit are great.

Ember Spirit is really good at split-pushing. Consider getting Boots of Travel on a core.

Lore

Lost within the Wailing Mountains, the Fortress of Flares lay abandoned, its training halls empty, its courtyard covered in leaves and dust. Upon a dais in its sealed temple rests a topaz cauldron filled with ancient ash, remnants of a pyre for the warrior-poet Xin. For three generations, Xin taught his acolytes the Bonds of the Guardian Flame, a series of mantras to train the mind and body for the harsh realities beyond the fortress walls. However, in teaching a warrior's way he earned a warrior's rivals, and in his autumn Xin was bested and slain. His followers spread to the wind. Yet as years turned to centuries and followers to descendants, his teachings endured by subtle whisper and deed. Touched by the teacher's lasting legacy, the Burning Celestial, inquisitive aspect of fire, cast himself to the Fortress of Flares and reignited the pyre ash. From these glowing embers emerged an image of Xin, wreathed in flame, his thoughtful countenance prepared to train and to teach, and to spread the fires of knowledge to all who seek guidance.
