Character description

Viper, the embodiment of venomous assault, excels as a distant combatant. His essence is woven from agility's finest threads. Predominantly, this hero thrives in the crucible of the midlane, showcasing prowess most prominently in the genesis and median chapters of the skirmish.

Role description

In the theater of early conflict, Viper emerges as a formidable adversary, wielding the Poison Attack to establish unrivaled supremacy. With the strategic acquisition of Aghanim's Shard, his capacity to dismantle bastions is markedly enhanced. The Nethertoxin's area-of-effect proves calamitous for adversaries whose reliance on innate skills is their Achilles' heel. Viper's Corrosive Skin ensures that any who dare engage at proximity pay a venomous toll. The acquisition of Aghanim's Scepter bestows upon him the Nosedive, a skill particularly efficacious against the melee combatants. The ultimate ability, Viper Strike, not only inflicts harm but also enervates and impedes the foe, and with Aghanim's Scepter, it can be unleashed with increased frequency and from an extended range.

Character lore

It was with a peculiar sense of elation that Viper emerged from the immutable shadows of the subterranean Nether Reaches. Initially, he harbored aspirations of mastering the arcane, heeding the edicts of a sorcerer. Yet, it dawned upon him that his innate venoms rivaled the potency of sorcery. In a defiant act of liberation, Viper unleashed his toxic miasma upon the eyes of his captor and took to the skies, heralding to the terrestrial realms the rise of a sovereign entity.
