Dashes and rolls in to disrupt enemy movements

Shield Crash

Pangolier jumps in the air and slams back to the ground in front of his current position, damaging and slowing all enemies in a radius. For each enemy hero hit, he gains an all damage shield for a short time. Forward movement is maintained if Shield Crash is used while Rolling Thunder is active, and allows Rolling Thunder to clear walls or cliffs. Shield Crash cooldown during Rolling Thunder is decreased.

    Rolling Thunder

    Pangolier curls into a debuff immune ball with 60 additional magic resistance and rolls out. When rolling, he moves at an increased speed and can move through trees, but has a decreased ability to turn. Striking enemies knocks them back, inflicting damage proportional to his attack damage and stunning them when they land. Colliding with walls or cliffs will cause a temporary pause while Pangolier reverses in direction. During Rolling Thunder, Shield Crash cooldown is reduced. DISPEL TYPE: Basic Dispel

    Roll Up

    Pangolier curls into an immobile protective ball, gaining debuff immunity, 60 magic resistance, and allowing him to turn. Can be cast during Rolling Thunder to temporarily hit the brakes. Can cast Rolling Thunder and Shield Crash during Roll Up. If enemies attack Pangolier during this, he will roll away from the attacker, applying Rolling Thunder damage/stun if there are enemies in the way.

    Strategy

    Secure last hits and damage the opponents at the same time with Shield Crash.

    Swashbuckle applies an extra hit if you pass through the opponent.

    Be careful after you expend Swashbuckle as opponents are more likely to go on you.

    During Rolling Thunder, turn rate is slightly improved after Shield Crash has been used.

    Once you have Blink Dagger, use it immediately before opponents are able to see it in your inventory.

    When not much is happening or Rolling Thunder is on cooldown, push out sidelines.

    Pangolier is great at enabling an early Roshan kill due to Lucky Shot armor reduction and attack speed slow chance.

    Pick up Aghanims Shard later in the game as it gives you another survivability tool and reliably channel Rolling Thunder.

    Counter Strategy

    Pangolier has a low HP pool and is squishy. Pressure him early on, especially when Swashbuckle is on cooldown.

    Pangolier's Rolling Thunder can be dodged by making sharp turns prior to impact.

    Avoid fighting in choke spots and clumping up against Rolling Thunder.

    Spell immunity items are great against Pangolier's disables and attack speed slow.

    Spells and items that provide roots or leash, stop Pangolier from using Swashbuckle and Rolling Thunder.

    Spell immunity piercing stuns are great at dealing with Pangolier's Rolling Thunder.

    Items and spells that can dispel enemies are great at removing Shield Crash buff from Pangolier.

    When Pangolier is about to hit you with Rolling Thunder, stand right at the edge of a high ground or low ground to avoid getting chain stunned.

    Lore

    The men and women that make up the Nivan Gallants live a life of swordplay, chandelier swinging, and tawdry romance. And while all adhere to their creed that “A life of adventure is the only life worth living,” the exploits of Donté Panlin still manage to raise the eyebrows of even the most hedonistic of swordsmen. There is no monster he won’t slay. No creature he won’t woo. No tyrant he won’t stand against. And no noble immune to his silver tongue.
