Strategy

If you have a strong level 2 powerspike on the lane, skill Vampiric Spirit on level 2, build up skeletons, release them on level 2 and use Wraithfire Blast.

Use Wraithfire Blast to secure ranged creep lasthits by either stunning the creep or an opponent.

When farming jungle, don't let your skeletons tank neutral creeps too much.

When neutral camp is at 30% of total health, move to the next camp to show your skeletons the way.

You should have vampiric spirit maxed out around level 7 to increase farming speed.

Consider keeping a skill point on level 6 or invest it in spells that will improve your farming speed if you are jungling.

Once you have a Blink Dagger, focus on killing backliners or supports first.

Mana burn is a big problem for the Wraith King. Consider aghanims shard when playing against heroes that have mana burn or buy diffusal.

Skeletons are not super useful in teamfights. Use them to push out lanes or after fights to take the buildings.

Counter Strategy

Wraith King has low armor. Pressure him with right clicks.

Reincarnation has a long cooldown on level 1. Look to pressure Wraith King while it is down.

Wraith King farms quickly with skeletons. Smoke on him, place deep wards and sentry off camps.

Don't use all your energy on Wraith King's first life unless you are sure you can kill him once more.

Mana burns are great at stopping Wraith King's Ulti until he gets Aghanim's Shard.

If wraith king seems to be saving gold he is most probably buying radiance, becareful of this timing and try punish this before he has it.

Lore

For untold years, King Ostarion built a kingdom from the remains of his enemies. It was an obsessive's errand, done to pass the long eternities of a monarchy that seemed fated never to end. He believed that as long as he built up the towers of his palace, he could not die. But eventually he learned that he had been deluded... that bone itself could perish. Deeply mistrustful of flesh, he sought a more permanent way of extending his reign, and at last settled on pursuit of wraith energy, a form of pure spirit given off by certain dark souls at death. Should he infuse himself with Wraith Essence, he thought he might create a body as luminous and eternal as his ego. On the millennial solstice known as Wraith-Night, he submitted to a rite of transformation, compelling his subjects to harvest enough souls to fuel his ambition for immortality. No one knows how many of his champions died, for the only survivor who mattered was the Wraith King who rose with the sun on the following morn. Now he rarely spends a moment on his glowing throne--but strides out with sword drawn, demanding a fealty that extends far beyond death.
