Scouts and attacks with his familiars

As his deadly familiars scout the field, Visage cloaks himself in armor and seeks the next battle. Once near a skirmish, he gathers soul energy from damage inflicted upon nearby fighters before releasing it in a devastating attack.

Strategy

Visage is fairly weak until level 6. Play for last hits and lane control.

Familiars are fairly squishy when Visage is not around.

Use familiars to control runes, stack camps, gank lanes even without your hero, drag and cut creepwaves.

Don't over-rotate. Work your way to Orchid as it allows you to solo kill most of the heroes.

You can summon fresh familiars to be able to chain 4 stuns on opponents.

With Aghanim's Scepter, your burst and pick off potential further increases.

Pick up Aghanims Shard later in the game as it allows you to survive jumps and provides another stun.

Counter Strategy

Instances of 40 damage and higher will remove a layer of Gravekeeper's Cloak.

Visage's Familiars give a lot of gold and are easy to kill when Visage is not around.

Visage is snowbally hero and falls off in late game. Look to extend the game. Don't be greedy with items.

Visage takes down buildings fast with Familiars. Organize defense quickly.

Break effects are removing Gravekeeper's Cloak and Visage becomes much weaker.

Crimson Guard is great against the Familiar's physical damage.

Once Visage gets Aghanim's Scepter, place Observer wards and sentries and carry detection.

Summon Familiars

Familiars will automatically attack the target Visage tried to attack last, and will return if that target is out of Visage's attack range, or Visage issues the cancel current action or hold position commands. The ability can be toggled to the Auto-Cast state to command the Familiars to return to Visage and not leave his side until the state has been disabled.

Lore

Perched atop the entrance to the Narrow Maze sit the looming shapes of sneering gargoyles, the paths into the hereafter forever in their gaze. Beasts and birds, men and monsters, all creatures that die and choose to travel beyond must someday pass beneath their sight. For an untethered spirit, the decision to journey through the veil of death is irrevocable. When chance comes, and by craft or cunning some restless soul escapes their hells and heavens, it is the dreaded gargoyle Visage, the bound form of the eternal spirit Necro'lic, who is dispatched to reclaim them. Ruthless and efficient, unhindered by the principles of death and fatigue, Visage stalks its prey without mercy or end, willingly destroying all which may give shelter to the fugitive essence. That which flaunts the laws of the afterlife may never rest, for while it is true that the dead may be revived, it is only a matter of time before Visage finds and returns them to their proper place.
