GUIDE TO NECROMANCY
Introducing: Vexana, The Necromancer

"Now is your time to suffer..."

INTRODUCTION TO THE NECROMANCER

Vexana is a high-risk damage mage, capable of dealing tremendous burst damage with just one spell. She alone possesses one of the most unique abilities in the game, and that is to resurrect and control dead enemy heroes as her puppets. Her damage alone, is devestating but all of her skills require precision and almost perfect timing to fully master her. One of the reasons why Vexana doesn't get picked a lot is because of how difficult her skill shots and how risky she is... Which is true but landing any of her skills are highly rewarding.  (I mean it.)



WHY SHOULD PLAYERS PICK YOU, VEXANA?

VEXANA :
"I alone possess the ability to deal large amounts of damage with only one spell. You will see their pitiful health bars that rise above above them, dissipate in a mere second. I can make them my slaves. Did I mention that my presence alone, terrifies enemy heroes? They may underestimate me but, I can be spooky, as well. They will come to a pitiful end!"

VEXANA'S BACKGROUND AND LORE
A long, long time ago, there was a small country with a kind and caring king and queen, held in high esteem by their subjects. Under the protection of the god of light, they lived a peaceful life. But deep under the ground, a lord of the dark abyss was plotting to invade their land. The Dark Lord sent the enchanting vampire queen Alice to tempt the king. The king stopped attending court and no longer cared for his once beloved queen. With her husband's betrayal, the queen's sanity was razed by flames of jealousy, and to try to win back her husband's heart, she made a deal with the dark lord to regain her youth and beauty. Every day in the kingdom another young and beautiful maiden went missing, and a panic fell over the people. The country grew weaker with each passing day, and the sacrifices demanded by the queen's sorcerer grew as well. Finally the kingdom collapsed, no more sacrifices could be found, and the devouring power of darkness suddenly caused the queen to turn wizened and frightening. A thousand years have passed, and this unknown kingdom has disappeared in the stream of history, leaving only the legend of the demon queen. Very few today connect this tale with the great and terrible Necromancer Vexana in the Land of Dawn. After all, it happened so, so long ago.

[Short Version : Vexana was a queen of a very peaceful kingdom but when Alice tempted her own husband, she grew furious and made a deal with the "Dark Lord" to gain youth and beauty but she must make sacrifices daily. Every day in the kingdom, many young and beautiful maidens disappeared. The kingdom grew weaker and thus, collapsed. Vexana grew to be a terrifying force, empowered by anger and revenge on Alice. She is really ANGRY at Alice. Screw Alice.]



SKILLS OF THE NECROMANCER w/TIPS & COMBOS

PASSIVE : [Necromancy Spell]
Adds an occult spell to targets who take damage from the Necromancer, lasting 5s. While the spell lasts, the target will explode upon death, dealing 320~600 magic damage to surrounding units (base damage increases with level). Units who receive plague damage from puppets will also have Necromancy Spell cast on them.
(TIP: In the laning phase, take advantage of this by constantly attacking the enemy minions in any way possible for the explosion. Lanes get cleared very fast because of this. Explosions in teamfight are the best!)


1ST SKILL : [Charmed Specter]
Unleashes ghostly power in a forward direction dealing 250/280/310/340/370/400 magic damage. The first hero hit will lose control and move towards the Necromancer, lasting 1/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5s.
(TIP: Landing this skill is important for many combos, so try to perfect the aim every time! This skill moves very slow but if landed, it can cancel almost any enemy skill such as Fanny's flight.)


2ND SKILL : [Nether Snare]
Summons an other-worldly power to deal 600/670/740/810/880/950 magic damage to a specified location.

(TIP: The BIG BOOM skill. Her most important and damaging skill yet. Landing this skill PERFECTLY is so important because the damage and impact it provides is huge! Again, the cast time is VERY slow so chaining it with other disables from your teammates will help a lot. Consistent practice is key.)


ULTIMATE : [Cursed Oath]
Puts a curse on enemy heroes that lasts 10/10/10 seconds (cannot be actively lifted), which deals 200/250/300 magic damage, and causes the targets to receive 60/75/90 magic damage per second and reducing health recovery by 70%/80%/90%. If a target dies while under the curse, the target will resurrect and become the Necromancer's puppet, fighting for the Necromancer. A resurrected puppet will inherit 70% of the original pre-death attributes and continuously deal plague damage to surrounding targets, dealing  a percentage of the enemy's max HP as magic damage. Puppets last 20 seconds.
(TIP: For maximum efficiency, put your control settings to "Target Lowest HP First.". Only cast this spell when you are sure that hero is going to die! It is best put on enemy Marksman or Tanks for the sweet survivability/extra damage they provide. Successful use of this skill will grant you a well, teammate that makes a teamfight, 6v4!)

If you've noticed, two of her skills require immaculate precision and aim to get good at Vexana. To perfect Vexana, you need to get good on landing skillshots first.

Vexana's Basic Combos
SINGLE TARGET NUKELET ME DECIEVE YOU
(2ND & 1ST can be switched)
YOU WILL BE MY PET! (puppet)
1ST > 2ND > ULT
2ND > 1ST > ULT
DYING ENEMY? > ULT > 1ST > 2ND



SKILL LEVELING AND RECOMMENDED BATTLEGROUND SPELLS

SKILL LEVELING
MAX FIRST.
  LEVEL IT UP WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
  MAX IT LAST.

RECOMMENDED BATTLE SPELLS

FLICKER

As Vexana has no mobility skill or any other escape, Flicker is the BEST option.
NOW, WHY YOU ASK?
Ambushed by a Karina? Flicker.
Zilong rushing at you from behind? Flicker.
Whole enemy team coming at you? Flicker.
YOUR IMMORTAL ENEMY ALICE SAYING HELLO? Flicker!
OR
PURIFY

This can be your escape skill in a teamfight situation when the enemy team is full of disabling skills. But then again, Flicker is better suited but pick Purify if you'd like.
NOW, WHY YOU ASK?
Cyclops trapped you? Purify.
Chou trying to knock you up? Purify.
Caught in an Aurora freeze? Purify.
THAT HORRENDOUS, DISGUSTING ENEMY ALICE ROOTING YOU? PURIFY! UGH.

VEXANA :
"Oh, apologies my pet. I'm just too infuriated at that barbaric... Corrupt... Wretched... SCAND*L**S ALICE.
I miss my husband, my people, my kingdom... Sorry dear, I'm mumbling again. Anyways, I also suggest FLICKER as it provides me both a defensive and aggressive tactics. I do in fact deal tremendous damage but if any of them lay their hands on me... I'll be dead."
(No wait, I'm already dead. Who cares.)


RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT SET FOR THE NECROMANCER
(Build Order is from left to right.)
NECRONOMICON
(BURST DAMAGE ORIENTED BUILD, SUITED TO ALL SITUATIONS)
(RECOMMENDED EMBLEM SET FOR VEXANA: Magic Assassin or Roamer)

Enchanted Talisman
+50 Magic Power, +250 HP, +20% CDR, Unique Passive- Mana Spring: Regen 10% total of one's max Mana every 10 seconds
One of Vexana's early weaknesses is the huge amount of mana needed to cast a skill. This is evident with her 2nd skill, so that's why Enchanted Talisman is here. 20% cooldown reduction along with the blue buff if you get it, makes Vexana's skill slightly spammable! With great mana, comes great catastrophic power.

Arcane Boots
+15 Magic Pen, Unique +40 Movement Speed
Mobility and boots are a must on every hero but with +15 magic penetration, you cannot say no to this splendid item for mages. The penetration will help deal the exact damage you want to your enemies.

Glowing Wand
+75 Magic Power, +5% Movement Speed, +15 Magical Pen
Unique Passive- Scorch: Burns the target for 3 seconds when the skills hit, dealing 2%/2.5%/3% of the target's current HP as magic damage, at least 10 pts.
5% movement speed, another +15 magic pen and it's insanely useful passive is a big powerspike for Vexana. Her ULTIMATE deals damage over time, adding the passive from Glowing Wand will make the kill, overkill.

Lightning Truncheon
+75 Magic Power, +30 Mana Regen
Unique Passive- Resonate: Every 6 seconds, your next damaging magical ability will proc, maximum of 3 enemies will be hurt by 150% magic power damage.
The +75 magic power adds another oomphf to your 2nd skill along with it's deadly passive... Resonate. The +30 mana regen is just another bonus treat for Vexana, what matters is how the passive is gonna hurt with your 2nd skill.

Concentrated Energy
+70 Magic Power, +700HP, Unique +30% Spell Vamp
Unique Passive- Recharge: Regen 10% of one's HP after killing a hero.
Another addition to the magic power coupled with +700 HP for som sweet survival rate and oh... Spell Vamp? Coupling this with your 2nd skill damage, heals a LOT. Most especially when successfully hitting it on multiple enemy heroes. And with a heal each kill, boom shakalaka!
Holy Crystal
+90 Magic Power, Unique +25% Magic Power,
Unique Passive- Exterminate: After a skill hits a target, magic attack will immediately increase by 15%. The next skill damage will terminate
this effect. This effect can last up to 3 seconds with a built in cooldown time of 10 seconds
The big item for every damage mage out there, the Holy Crystal. +25% magic power, +90 and that godly passive, you are capable of one-shotting squishies with just skill 2. At this point, you are a walking time bomb, so be careful now about your positioning

RECOMMENDED ALLIES, COUNTERPICKS AND ENEMIES
EXCELLENT ALLIES FOR VEXANA VEXANA COUNTERS THESE HEROES AVOID THESE ENEMIES
Chou
Alice
Cyclops
Ruby
Minotaur
Karina
Tigreal
Fanny
Kagura
(note : All excellent allies for Vexana must have some sort of communication as their skills help Vexana to land her own.
She can counter Alice's health regen from her ult as well as Minotaur's. She can only stop Fanny mid-flight if she lands her 1st skill PRECISELY.
Lastly, she is vulnerable to mobile heroes and assault heroes, she won't land any abilities on always-moving heroes.)


VEXANA'S COLLECTION OF TIPS
VEXANA :
"Listen carefully, for you are about to hear what I have to say about my gameplay. I deal damage, okay? But receiving damage... I can't do that, my pet. Play me like any high-damage but vulnerable mage. Be careful.
I already know how death feels like...
Indeed... I might be dead but, please be wise, my pet. Farewell."

  • In the early game, all of my skills require a heavy amount of mana so buying two mana necklaces won't hurt a bit. Get the blue buff as well.
  • You can practice landing the skills especially the 2nd skill on bot games. It helps.
  • Always be with a teammate, without flicker; you and I are dead.
  • The side lanes are ideal for laning, most especially top lane.
  • Be alert of the minimap, have map awareness. You don't want to get ganked.
  • In teamfights, try to find any low health enemy hero. After so, use your ULT!
  • Prediction and decision making is key, all of my skills are really slow moving, yet damaging.
  • Using the 1st skill while in a bush will make the skill itself, invisible to enemy heroes.
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT, Vexana's strength lies in the mid-late game. Play passively while her items aren't built.
  • Consider getting the Immortality item in the defense section if the games goes on too long.

Super nice guide! Your guide motivated me to pick up Vexana again!

I did some experiments on your power, my queen. Let me share some highlights of what I found.

Necromancy spell (passive): when the occult spell marked die and explode, the explosion itself counted as one of her skill. Which means that it can proc item skill effects!, such as how spell vamp is gonna heals vexana on explosion, scorching wand gonna burn, even the lightning truncheon's gonna proc without casting any spells! (given it is not in cooldown)

Also, I think lightning truncheon is the best item for my queen! Her ultimate curse last 10 seconds while the lightning CD is 6 seconds. This means her ultimate can proc lightning twice! in one spell casting!

That's it for now, you can ask this lowly servant if you have something in your mind. THANK YOU FOR LOVE ME LIKE A PET!

Thanks for liking my guide and Vexana's tips! Huehue.

You are totally right! Lightning Truncheon, Glowing Wand, etc. works really amazing on her. I heard word from Vexana that Glowing Wand procs it's passive for 10 seconds on any hero with a cursed mark on them. (Ultimate)
Thus ensuring a kill and a puppet from her ultimate. Cheers!
