Zips across the map to engage in fights

Storm Spirit is never one to miss a fight. Zipping from across the battlefield in a bolt of lightning, he strikes enemies from every direction with exploding remnants and charged attacks, then disappears while his enemies are still scrambling to react.

Strategy

Rune control is very important. Arcane and Regeneration runes can easily win you the fight or allow you to get a pick-off.

Stack the nearest jungle camp and clear it after addressing lane creeps. It is very important to hit level 6 as soon as possible to make yourself less gankable.

If you have a really good start, get Orchid as soon as possible. It will allow you to pick-off most of the heroes on the map.

You can right-click and use spells and items during Ball Lightning, including teleport.

Mana management is the key. The more mana you have the more damage you can do. Be full mana if you expect fight to break out.

Don't spend all of your mana on initial jump. Preserve some to be able to disengage.

When leaving the fountain, you can Ball Lightning beyond tier 4 towers while bottling and still be full mana.

Target backliners. They are squishy and Storm has no issue gap-closing.

Static Remnant provides flying vision around itself which can be useful to scout Roshan or rune spawn and give you vision in tree lines.

Ball Lightning destroys trees in its path.

Storm Spirit is one of the best Aegis/Cheese carriers as he utilizes the mana he gets back really well.

Level 20 Vortex talent along with Aghanim's Scepter mimics Reverse Polarity but on 16s cooldown.

In late game you can fly over and kill the creeps that opponents are looking to push with.

Counter Strategy

Storm Spirit uses Static Remnant frequently. Magic Stick and Wand will be charged up.

Control power runes against Storm. He likes to bottle and gank with those.

Look to fight when Storm Spirit is low on mana as he won't be able to use Ball Lightning much.

Be aware of Storm Spirit's Orchid timing. He can solo kill most heroes with it.

Spells and items that provide instant disables and silences are great against Storm Spirit.

Magic resistance and spell immunity items are great against Storm Spirit.

Be quick on glyphing or piping the creepwave when pushing highground against Storm's Ball Lightning.

      Lore

      Storm Spirit is literally a force of nature--the wild power of wind and weather, bottled in human form. And a boisterous, jovial, irrepressible form it is! As jolly as a favorite uncle, he injects every scene with crackling energy. But it was not always thus, and there was tragedy in his creation. Generations ago, in the plains beyond the Wailing Mountains, a good people lay starving in drought and famine. A simple elementalist, Thunderkeg by name, used a forbidden spell to summon the spirit of the storm, asking for rain. Enraged at this mortal's presumption, the Storm Celestial known as Raijin lay waste to the land, scouring it bare with winds and flood. Thunderkeg was no match for the Celestial--at least until he cast a suicidal spell that forged their fates into one: he captured the Celestial in the cage of his own body. Trapped together, Thunderkeg's boundless good humor fused with Raijin's crazed energy, creating the jovial Raijin Thunderkeg, a Celestial who walks the world in physical form.
