Juggernaut

Popularity: #5

Leaderboard: #35

Ban Rank: #24

KDA Rank: #35

Slices through his enemies with precise strikes

In a flurry of slashes, Juggernaut cuts down his foes. Sprinting and spinning into battle with reckless abandon, and nearly invincible once he is able to begin his assault, stopping Juggernaut can often be just as difficult as surviving him.

Strategy

Juggernaut has almost instant attack animation which makes lasthitting and denying a lot easier.

Blade Fury does insane amounts of damage. Look to play aggressively on the lane.

Try to align your level 3 timing and boots, you have a high chance of killing with level 2 blade fury and boots.

Avoid right-clicking opponents during Blade Fury until you get proc item or items that apply debuffs.

Make sure to micro healing ward properly. You can use it during Blade Fury and Omnislash.

When in trouble, consider to Blade Fury and teleport out.

When deciding to Omnislash, consider how close opponents' wave or neutral creeps might be.

Scout opponents' inventories for Omnislash counters and adjust playstyle and itemization accordingly.

With decent game, Juggernaut is good at killing Roshan from the 18 minute mark with minimal or no help.

You can slow siege enemy towers and buildings by damaging them during Blade Fury and then backing away.

Counter Strategy

Juggernaut is one of the strongest laning carries as Blade Fury does more than 400 AOE damage already on level 1. Consider buying items to increase your movement speed

Try to keep distance from Juggernaut and try to force a defensive Blade Fury. Juggernaut's mana pool is not great and Blade Fury has high cooldown on lower levels. Pressure him after he used Blade Fury

Look to hit Juggernaut's Healing Ward as one hit is sufficient and it gives you 75 gold

When you are ganking Juggernaut, he will look to Blade Fury and teleport out on first sign of trouble. Make sure you surprise disable him before he spins if you do not yet have a spell immunity piercing disable

Juggernaut's Omnislash jumps are random. Use surrounding creeps, illusions or heroes to split the damage

Control items like sheepstick and abyssal blade are good at controlling juggernaut.

Main damaging ability of Juggernaut is Omnislash and this spell is counterable by many items. Make sure to have at least one such item for each hero

Juggernaut's Omnislash cooldown is long with 120 seconds, which allows you to pressure him while it's down

Lore

No one has ever seen the face hidden beneath the mask of Yurnero the Juggernaut. It is only speculation that he even has one. For defying a corrupt lord, Yurnero was exiled from the ancient Isle of Masks--a punishment that saved his life. The isle soon after vanished beneath the waves in a night of vengeful magic. He alone remains to carry on the Isle's long Juggernaut tradition, one of ritual and swordplay. The last practitioner of the art, Yurnero's confidence and courage are the result of endless practice; his inventive bladework proves that he has never stopped challenging himself. Still, his motives are as unreadable as his expression. For a hero who has lost everything twice over, he fights as if victory is a foregone conclusion.
