Can silence all enemies on the map

Silencer changes the dynamic of every battle when he shuts down the enemy's ability to cast their spells. As he cuts his foes to ribbons with his glaive, he steals their intelligence to add to his own, ensuring his foes are always at a disadvantage.

Strategy

Use Arcane Curse when you expect opponents to cast a spell.

Clicking Glaives of Wisdom on an enemy hero doesn't draw creep aggro.

To steal intelligence from a dying hero you have to have Glaives of Wisdom skilled and be within 925 of dying hero or be the one who scores the kill.

Combining the Arcane Curse silence with Last Word does a lot of damage.

Be aware of what happens on the map, so you can use Global Silence when needed.

Using Global Silence defensively is fine, but ideally use it during fights. Make moves when it is off cooldown.

Many items dispel Global Silence. Be patient and don't waste it at the start of a fight.

Counter Strategy

Glaives of Wisdom are great for harassing as Silencer doesn't pull aggro and the damage ramps up.

Silencers Arcane Curse silences and does more damage if you cast a spell while under the effect of it.

Global Silence has a long cooldown. Look to fight after it was used.

Items that provide dispel are great against Silencer's silences.

Lore

Part of the seventh and final generation of a carefully designed pedigree, Nortrom was bred by the ancient order of the Aeol Drias to be the greatest magic user the world had ever seen. He was the prophesied one, the culmination of two-hundred years of careful pairings, a war-mage who would bring glory to the order, and destruction to their sworn enemies, The Knights of the Fold. Raised with other young mages in a hidden cantonment among the hills of the Hazhadal barrens, the order's preceptors waited for Nortrom's abilities to manifest. While the other students honed their talents with fire, or ice, or incantatory spells, Nortrom sat silent and talentless, unable to cast so much as a hex. As the day of final testing approached, he still hadn't found his magic. In disgust, the preceptors berated him, while the children laughed. "You are no mage," the head of the order declared. Still, Nortrom did not slink away. He entered the day of testing and faced down the young mages who had mocked him. And then his preceptors learned a valuable lesson: a lack of magic can be the greatest magic of all. Nortrom silenced the young mages one by one and defeated them in single combat, until he alone stood as champion of the Aeol Drias, in fulfillment of the prophecy.
