Notes

Strategy

Eye of Skadi is a very situational late game item for carries.

Aggressive use

Skadi is usually bought to counter fast enemies, slowing them down and hindering their attack speed.

Notable heroes

  • Morphling: Morphling is a hero that excels at right click damage but has a short attack range. Eye of Skadi allows him to chase enemy heroes more effectively, while providing a large stat boost (allowing him to morph more agility).

Synergy with other items

The slow effect of Skadi stacks with the lifesteal attack modifier.
