Jakiro, the Twin Head Dragon, is a ranged intelligence hero who utilizes the powers of ice and fire with powerful linear area spells. He can freeze enemies in place with Ice Path, or slow them down with Dual Breath. He is capable of dealing heavy damage throughout the game by locking enemies inside his Macropyre, and provides great pushing power with Liquid Fire.

With high base attribute gain and relatively low mana costs, he requires few items to be effective. Jakiro is a support who can continually turn battles in his favor with good positioning. His high strength gain makes him a bit tougher than most spellcasters and his low cooldowns ensure that his downtime is very minuscule, making him a great hero for ganks, pushes and clashes across the battlefield.

Bio[]

Jakiro minimap icon.pngJakiro, the Twin Head Dragon
▶️ "Two sides of the same coin."
Even among magical beasts, a twin-headed dragon is a freak. Equal parts ice and fire, cunning and rage, the creature known as Jakiro glides over charred and ice-bound battlefields, laying waste to any who would bear arms against it. Pyrexae dragon clutches always contain two fledglings. Famous for their viciousness even from the first moments of life, newly hatched dragons of this species will try to kill their sibling while still in the nest. Only the strongest survive. In this way is the strength of the Pyrexae line ensured. By some accident of nature, the freak Jakiro hatches from a single egg, combining in a single individual the full range of abilities found within the diverse Pyrexae species. Trapped within the armature of its monstrous body, the powers of ice and fire combine, and now no enemy is safe.

Pyrexae dragons have tremendously dangerous breath for each branch of the species; combining them is unimaginable.

Notes:

  • Targeting a unit causes the breaths to be released towards the unit's position.
  • Both the icy and fiery wave travel at a speed of 1050, taking 0.71 (Talent 1.43) seconds to travel the full distance.
  • The fiery breath is released 0.2 seconds after the icy breath is released.
    • This means it is possible for enemies to be hit by only one of the breaths, by getting in or out of range of the second breath.
    • Jakiro cannot move until both waves are released, but can use items and abilities, and turn a little bit between the first and the second breath.
  • With the travel distance and end radius, Dual Breath can hit units up to 1025 (Talent 1775) range away.
    • The complete area of both breaths is shaped like a cone.

    • With the starting distance, path length and path radius, Ice Patch can hit units up to 1362 range away.
    • It can also hit units 138 range behind Jakiro, due to its radius and starting position.
  • Enemy units which come within 150 radius of the path while it is up get stunned and damaged by it.
  • The stun lasts as long as the remaining duration of the path itself.
    • The path grants 150 range flying vision along the path for its duration.
  • Enemies may only be stunned once per cast, so if dispeled, they cannot get stunned by it again.
  • Ice Path first applies the debuff, then the damage.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon.png Tango offers cheap health regeneration during the laning phase, allowing Jakiro to stay longer in lane and get the experience he needs.
  • Healing Salve icon.png Healing Salve also restores health to Jakiro and allies.
  • Clarity icon.png Clarity replenishes Jakiro's mana over time, allowing him to keep harassing enemies using Dual Breath.
  • Iron Branch icon.png Iron Branch increases Jakiro's overall survivability by providing additional attribute bonuses for cheap; Jakiro can use it to get more heal out of Tango, or save up to build Magic Wand.
  • Observer Ward icon.png Observer Ward grants vision of the enemies so Jakiro and allies can better plan ganks and pushes.

Early game:

  • Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed provide a significant bonus to Jakiro's movement speed, which help catch up to fleeing heroes or escape from danger himself. They can later upgrade into Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots to help with Jakiro's mana.
  • Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick and Magic Wand icon.png Magic Wand grant charges as enemy heroes use abilities, which exchange for a burst of health and mana restoration.
  • Wind Lace icon.png Wind Lace adds a little bit to Jakiro's low movement speed, and builds into Eul's Scepter of Divinity. Also advisable to purchase another for extra speed once built.
  • Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll transports Jakiro across the map. After death, use it to quickly return to lane and not miss out on creep experience. After the laning phase, carrying one can prove helpful as both an escape mechanism and a quick way to help allied heroes across the map.

Mid game:

  • Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots expands Jakiro's mana pool so he can use abilities more. The active ability sustains Jakiro's and nearby teammates' ability usage. In the late game, Jakiro has an option to upgrade Arcane Boots to Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves to better support his team.
  • Tranquil Boots (Active) icon.png Tranquil Boots is a sidegrade option to Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots providing high HP regen and movement speed instead of mana. May be combined with Soul Ring icon.png Soul Ring to solve any mana issues.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity provides intelligence and mana regeneration at a cost effective price, and it gives Jakiro an active ability that allows him to land his abilities more easily. After using Cyclone, Jakiro will have enough time to set up Macropyre and time Ice Path to ensure maximum stun duration on enemy target. Jakiro can also use the active on himself to dispel debuffs or silences.
  • Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos' long-ranged root can set up Ice Path as well as Jakiro's other abilities, being a good alternative to cyclone. The bonus stats also help Jakiro's effectiveness.

Late game:

  • Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger allows Jakiro to initiate teamfights much easier, along with the added ability to travel the map quicker and offers quick escape from incoming enemies. However, it does not guarantee escape because taking damage will disable the ability to blink for 3 seconds. At the late game it can also be upgraded into Arcane Blink icon.png Arcane Blink to provide cooldown reduction, but most importantly cast point reduction, something well welcomed for Jakiro's abilities.
  • Force Staff icon.png Force Staff acts more as an escape item compared to Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger, as Jakiro can use it while taking damage. Jakiro can also use it on allies if they want to chase after a kill or escape from danger themselves.
  • Meteor Hammer icon.png Meteor Hammer is a very cheap and strong item for Jakiro's game plan as it works twofold: not only allowing further destruction of enemy structures in tandem with Liquid Fire, but also allowing for more advanced Macropyre combos with Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity and Ice Path, perfectly syncing when you channel it immediately after the cast point, similarly to Nyx Assassin minimap icon.png Nyx Assassin's combo. Be wary of enemies with Status Resistance, for they will be able to escape and counter this maneuver.
  • Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard provides Jakiro a new ability, Liquid Frost, that may be used to slow enemies, siege towers, and deal Max HP damage at no mana cost and a low cooldown.

Situational items:

  • Veil of Discord icon.png Veil of Discord's active Magic Weakness increases the magical damage enemies take from Jakiro's and his teammates' abilities.
  • Aether Lens icon.png Aether Lens' cast range increase helps Jakiro maintain a safe distance during fights. Because almost all of his abilities affect the whole area between him and the maximum cast range, this also greatly increases the area in which enemies may be hit.
  • Kaya icon.png Kaya improves damage output of Jakiro's abilities, also sparing additional mana, allowing him to use more abilities in a single fight.
  • Boots of Travel 1 icon.png Boots of Travel, for a support Jakiro, may be purchased in the late game to provide pressure to enemy lanes should they go undefended. For a mid Jakiro, this item may be instead be purchased in place of Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots, allowing Jakiro to maintain a global presence throughout the match by simultaneously remaining a constant threat to enemy map control as well as providing many opportunities to farm his other items quickly. The high movement speed provided also helps make up for high cast times.
  • Glimmer Cape icon.png Glimmer Cape helps increase survivability of Jakiro and allies by granting invisibility and magic resistance.
  • Mekansm icon.png Mekansm supports Jakiro and team with health restoration and armor. It goes hand in hand with his natural build of Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots into Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves.
  • Pipe of Insight icon.png Pipe of Insight shields Jakiro and allies from magical damage, on top of giving passive health regeneration and magic resistance.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter increases the effectiveness of Macropyre by prolonging the duration and increasing the damage, as well as giving Jakiro attributes to remedy his health and mana pools.
  • Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves provide a steady supply of health and mana to the team, and increases Jakiro's survivability with armor, health regeneration, and dispel.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse provides a great disable with its active ability, Hex. It also provides a great increase to Jakiro's mana and mana regeneration, as well as all around attributes to help with his survivability.
  • Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core greatly increases Jakiro's survivability by not only giving him all round health and mana boosts, but also by allowing his abilities to lifesteal a portion of their damage. In addition, the cooldown reduction dramatically increases his damage and crowd control in teamfights.
  • Shiva's Guard icon.png Shiva's Guard provides a massive increase to Jakiro's mana pool and resistance to physical attacks. The active Arctic Blast provides additional damage in a teamfight and slows enemies' movement speeds, making Jakiro's abilities easier to hit. The passive Freezing Aura helps reduce damage from enemy carries by slowing their attack speed.
  • Gleipnir icon.png Gleipnir, an upgrade to Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos, turns the root into an AoE ability, being able to catch multiple enemies for Jakiro's AoE toolkit. The passive lightning also provides extra area of effect damage.
  • Wind Waker icon.png Wind Waker, a luxury item mainly used in the late game, provides Jakiro both more speed and the ability to use the active on allies, potentially saving them from enemy assault.

Gameplay[]

Roles: Support Support Nuker Nuker Pusher Pusher Disabler Disabler
Complexity: ★☆☆
Playstyle: Most Pyrexae dragons are hatched with one head, attuned to either ice or fire. Then there was Jakiro, an accident of nature. Possessing the might of both elements, the twin-headed dragon's Dual Breath freezes and burns simultaneously. Gobs of Liquid Fire adhere to armor and walls, melting down steel and stone alike. Retreating foes are blocked off with Ice Path, giving Jakiro ample time to roast them on his Macropyre.
