Strategy

Use Spectral Dagger to secure ranged creep lasthits and damage the opponents.

When in trouble, use a Spectral Dagger to run over a cliff or a treeline, or even pop a defensive Haunt to escape.

Look around for Haunt opportunities. Spectre farms slowly so kills are necessary.

Spectre's Haunt is amazing for killing backliners and supports. Focus on killing those at the start of the fight.

Check opponents for break effects. Adapt your playstyle and itemization accordingly.

Consider aghanims shard versus heroes that do alot of burst damage.

With Manta Style, Spectre gains burst and Roshan potential as Desolate works on illusions.

Counter Strategy

Spectre is a weak laner. Look to pressure her early on. She's slow at recovering.

Spectre's Desolate does no damage to you, if you are close to an allied unit.

The closer you are to Spectre the more damage you take from Dispersion.

Protect your supports from being killed during the Spectre's Haunt.

Spectre's Haunt has a long cooldown. Look to fight after it was used.

Break effects remove Desolate and Dispersion and make Spectre much weaker.

Spectral Dagger

Spectre flings a dagger to draw a Shadow Path, dealing damage and slowing the movement speed of any enemies along the trail. Units hit by the dagger also trail a Shadow Path. While treading the path, Spectre phases through otherwise impassable terrain.

Lore

Just as higher states of energy seek a lower level, the Spectre known as Mercurial is a being of intense and violent energy who finds herself irresistibly drawn to scenes of strife as they unfold in the physical world. While her normal spectral state transcends sensory limitations, each time she takes on a physical manifestation, she is stricken by a loss of self--though not of purpose. In the clash of combat, her identity shatters and reconfigures, and she begins to regain awareness. She grasps that she is Mercurial the Spectre--and that all of her Haunts are but shadows of the one true Spectre. Focus comes in the struggle for survival; her true mind reasserts itself; until in the final moments of victory or defeat, she transcends matter and is restored once more to her eternal form.
