Rubick is one of the most popular intelligence-type heroes in Dota 2. Rubick is also a hero who is an expert in stealing opponent’s hero skills. In addition to acting as a support, sometimes for pro players to play this hero in the middle lane who play the core hero.
Rubick is a hero that is easy to use. Rubick’s main difficulty lies in the foresight of our eyes when stealing opponent’s skills. Because the skill that can be stolen is only the last skill used by the opponent’s hero.
To play this hero, you must have a reflex and fast response, otherwise, this hero will not be useful during the clash team because the ultimate skill only serves to steal opponent’s skills.
Even so, Rubick is equipped with a mechanism to disable opponents through his first skill. It’s just that Rubick is not able to provide large output damage during the early game because he does not have the ultimate skill. The only skill that has damage output is only the second skill. This skill also reduces the attack damage of the target affected by the skill.
Early game, you can buy a null talisman first to deal damage and a bit of the mana pool (this item is purchased if you want to take the mid lane). If you play as role support, the first item you can buy is ironwood branch and tango, don’t forget to buy two ward observers to provide additional vision in the map.
This hero is very suitable to be shot when opponents use heroes like Magnus, Enigma or heroes with ultimate skills that are useful for crowd control such as Enigma’s Black hole’s skills.
If you are not the type of player who usually fills role mid lane, you better play this hero as a support to support the presentation of the team’s victory. Interested in playing this hero? You can see various ways used by the pro players on Youtube.
Finally, after the full moon, our waiting time has paid off. Maybe it’s more pointed out to Dota 2 fans who have been waiting for a long time “when will Rubick be released?”. Valve has just released the latest update for Dota 2 which contains Rubick’s arcana and an event in game to welcome the Christmas holiday titled Frosthaven: A Fortivus Story. That’s right, finally Valve returned to present an in-game event which of course there will be prizes that you can get.
When seen in plain view, this Rubick looks normal, only a colored robe that can make Rubick drift throughout the game plus the effects of particles that look like squares adorn around it. But what’s interesting is that Valve presents features of the effects that match the mainstay skills of Rubick itself, namely the Steal Spell that can change the color of the robe, animation and interaction from Rubick itself. There are even 115 different effects from the skills stolen by Rubick.
While the Frosthaven: A Frostivus Story event in game will take place from December 19 to January 3. This exciting event will bring you to protect the Christmas tree from the onslaught of enemies that never run out. The heroes available in this mode are also limited, not all of your heroes can be used. To survive an enemy attack you can still buy items like playing Dota 2 as usual. And finally you can collect points to get a prize after the game ends. Oh yeah, if you are lucky you can get the courier Gingerbread Baby Roshan.
It seems that Valve began to understand the feeling of being missed by the Dota 2 players at that time. Yes, as we know, when Dota 2 has just been released and lasts for some time it always presents limited events, such as Diretide, Frostivus, New Bloom, Dark Moon, Nemesis Assassin and several other interesting events that were initially abandoned. And now they finally answer the feeling of longing for all of you.
