      Strategy

      Quas Exort: Sunstrike opponents fountain to check opponents items and infer lanes.

      Quas Exort: Look around the map as much as you can for potential Sunstrike kills.

      Quas Exort: You can use Sunstrike here and there to secure ranged creep last hit.

      Quas Wex: Use Tornado and EMP to secure a last hit or deny a creep, and burn opponents mana at the same time.

      Quas Exort: Use Forged Spirits to control runes.

      If you play Quas Wex, then control active runes and look for opportunities to rotate once you have Boots and Spirit Vessel.

      If you play Quas Exort, then avoid rotating and running around. Farm, pressure opponents' tower and look for Sun Strikes.

      After ganking few times with Spirit Vessel, consider going back for Hand of Midas if the game slows down.

      When not much is happening, you can easily split push with summons or by dumping spells from fog.

      Don't forget to use Alacrity on yourself or right-clicking ally in the fights. Works well with Cold Snap.

      Use Forged Spirits or Sunstrike to scout if opponents are missing.

      Invoker is great at enabling team to take Roshan early due to Alacrity, Forged Spirits and Cold Snap.

      Aghanims Scepter is a huge powerspike if you have a setup within the team, such as Chronosphere.

      Counter Strategy

      Identify which Invoker type you are playing against, by looking at invoked spells and orbs above Invoker. Quas Exort Invoker is farm and burst oriented and uses the Sunstrike ability early on. While Quas Wex is ganking and control oriented and uses Tornado + EMP and Cold Snap + Urn of Shadows combinations.

      Invoker is squishy and the only real defense he has are his spells. Try to gank him early in the game with Smoke of Deceit and Dust of Appearance.

      Opt for anti-magic damage items against Invoker

      Dodging or surviving Invoker's opening combination of spells, makes him weak for 5 to 10 seconds depending on the cooldown of his Invoke ability.

      Keep in mind that Invokers Tornado dispels. Active rune buffs and many spells are countered by it.

      Aghanim's Scepter grants Invoker Cataclysm spell. Be aware of it and be mindful about your hero's position during it.

      Lore

      In its earliest, and some would say most potent form, magic was primarily the art of memory. It required no technology, no wands or appurtenances other than the mind of the magician. All the trappings of ritual were merely mnemonic devices, meant to allow the practitioner to recall in rich detail the specific mental formulae that unlocked a spell's power. The greatest mages in those days were the ones blessed with the greatest memories, and yet so complex were the invocations that all wizards were forced to specialize. The most devoted might hope in a lifetime to have adequate recollection of three spells--four at most. Ordinary wizards were content to know two, and it was not uncommon for a village mage to know only one--with even that requiring him to consult grimoires as an aid against forgetfulness on the rare occasions when he might be called to use it. But among these early practitioners there was one exception, a genius of vast intellect and prodigious memory who came to be known as the Invoker. In his youth, the precocious wizard mastered not four, not five, not even seven incantations: He could command no fewer than ten spells, and cast them instantly. Many more he learned but found useless, and would practice once then purge from his mind forever, to make room for more practical invocations. One such spell was the Sempiternal Cantrap--a longevity spell of such power that those who cast it in the world's first days are among us still (unless they have been crushed to atoms). Most of these quasi-immortals live quietly, afraid to admit their secret: But Invoker is not one to keep his gifts hidden. He is ancient, learned beyond all others, and his mind somehow still has space to contain an immense sense of his own worth...as well as the Invocations with which he amuses himself through the long slow twilight of the world's dying days.
