Puck

Orbs to enemies and silences them

Puck has a talent for confounding its enemies with playfully elusive mischief. By teleporting to its damaging orb in order to hop short distances, it attacks foes with bursts of silencing dust. By the time its enemies can react, Puck has long since escaped.

Strategy

Use Illusory Orb immediately as you load into the game to place Observer Ward quickly.

Use Illusory Orb and Waning Rift to secure creep last hits and damage enemy heroes at the same time.

You can disjoint ranged attacks and spell projectiles with Phase Shift and Illusory Orb.

Illusory Orb gives you an upper hand when it comes to rune control and helps with stacking from distance.

Illusory Orb provides vision on its path so you can check for pillar wards and scout Roshan pit.

Play actively and look around for possibilities to gank. Make use of your hero's mobility and elusiveness.

When not much is happening, push out the sidelines with your nukes.

Puck is amazing at gap-closing, especially with Blink Dagger. Prioritize killing backliners and supports in fights.

Pick up Aghanims Shards in the mid to late game to insta kill creep waves with spells and do more damage in fights.

Counter Strategy

Puck has low armor and HP. Pressure her early on.

Control power runes against Puck. She likes to bottle and gank with those.

Fight back when Dream Coiled unless you think you can escape by breaking it.

Avoid fighting in choke spots and clumping up against Dream Coil.

Puck is hard to catch. Instant disables and silences are great against Puck.

Spell immunity and magic resistance items are great against Puck's magical damage.

Puck is great at split-pushing. Consider getting Boots of Travel on a Core.

      Lore

      While Puck seems at first glance a mischievous, childish character, this quality masks an alien personality. The juvenile form of a Faerie Dragon, a creature that lives for eons, Puck spends countless millennia in its childish form. So while it is technically true that Puck is juvenile, it will continue to be so when the cities of the present age have sloughed away into dust. Its motives are therefore inscrutable, and what appears to be play may in fact hide a darker purpose. Its endless fondness for mischief is the true indicator of Puck's true nature.
