Strategy

Powershot provides brief vision and cuts trees in its path.

Windrun is dispellable, so be careful when playing against certain heroes and items.

Use powershot to secure ranged creeps and damage the opponents at the same time.

Proc items like Javelin, Maelstrom or Monkey King Bar work really well with Focus Fire.

Windranger is squishy. Don't let opponents surprise you. You want to be the one that starts the fight.

Take your time in the fights to guarantee Shackleshot lands, as most of your impact comes from that.

Push out the side lanes when not much is happening around the map.

Pick up Aghanims Shard around minute 15 as it adds another control spell to your arsenal.

Counter Strategy

Windranger is susceptible to early game spell harass. Manage your mana and keep pressuring her

Windranger's Powershot does lots of damage. Avoid being hit or at least don't be the first unit being hit

Windranger can easily kill most heroes with her ultimate and a single Javelin. Be mindful about that

Blade Mail is a decent counter against her ultimate

To counter Windranger's Shackleshot, try to stay away from trees and make sure you don't have creeps or heroes behind you. Linken's Sphere is also helpful against Shackleshot

Windranger's Windrun ability is countered by items that pierce through evasion, cause magical damage and dispels such as Silver Edge

Lore

The western forests guard their secrets well. One of these is Lyralei, master archer of the wood, and favored godchild of the wind. Known now as Windranger, Lyralei's family was killed in a storm on the night of her birth--their house blown down by the gale, contents scattered to the winds. Only the newborn survived among the debris field of death and destruction. In the quiet after the storm, the wind itself took notice of the lucky infant crying in the grass. The wind pitied the child and so lifted her into the sky and deposited her on a doorstep in a neighboring village. In the years that followed, the wind returned occasionally to the child's life, watching from a distance while she honed her skills. Now, after many years of training, Windranger fires her arrows true to their targets. She moves with blinding speed, as if hastened by a wind ever at her back. With a flurry of arrows, she slaughters her enemies, having become, nearly, a force of nature herself.
