Dota 2 7.00 Guide: How To Counter Monkey King
Dota 2 7.00 is here and we were all surprised to see a lot of anticipated changes including massive reworks of hero abilities. Dota 2 seems like an entirely new game with all these changes, however, there will still be this hero who will surely show up in the majority of your games - namely Monkey King. This guide will help you counter those Monkey King spammers out there.
Monkey King Weaknesses
Monkey King, despite being elusive, is very squishy and does have a relatively low armor. He relies so much on his spell to escape so you need to silence or disable him to prevent that from happening. You can easily shut him down if your team is composed of heroes that can keep him contained, heroes that can provide high ground vision and heroes that can easily cut trees. You can read more about Monkey King here.
Monkey King Counter Picks
Storm Spirit. The best hero recommended to play against Monkey King is Strom Spirit. Storm Spirit's ability to cut trees, chase heroes, disable, and silence them is the perfect counter pick for Monkey King. Storm has also a great escape capability you can always use when things don't turn out as planned.
Timbersaw. As we all have been reading and seeing everywhere, Monkey King has that ability to jump onto trees. He uses this ability to escape and acquire high ground vision. The solution to this is pick heroes that are very good in cutting trees. Timbersaw is a very decent counter against Monkey King, especially during late game.
Batrider. It's been mentioned in this article that Monkey King's weakness are heroes that can provide high ground vision and can destroy trees. In this case, Batrider is your man. Bat's ultimate ability also disables Monkey King and works perfectly in dragging that monkey unto your allies.
Other Heroes. If you are not very good in playing Storm Spirit, Timbersaw, or Batrider, there are still other heroes that can contribute much in pinning down Monkey King. You can pick disabler or silencer heroes like Lion, Shadow Shaman, Skywrath, or Silencer. You might also want to choose Earth Spirit to get him out of his ultimate AoE. Venomancer is also an option here because of his ability to slow Monkey King and provide damage over time.
Monkey King is only one of the biggest and newest update in Dota 2 7.00. The update went through the test client yesterday and is expected to hit the main client sometime today. For more information about Dota 2 7.00, you can visit the official Dota 2 website.
