The process of pushing involves accompanying your creep wave to the enemy towers and damaging them until they are destroyed. Normally especially during early game this is a slow process as towers and structures in general take reduced damage from most sources. Pusher heroes circumvent this through abilities that can either directly damage structures or bring additional forces to the creep wave through either summons, illusions, or taking control of neutral creeps.
