Recommended Heroes[]

Lifestealer icon.png
  • More attack damage and attack range, this item is well suited for Lifestealer. Maim also further helps Lifestealer close down the distance between the enemy target and him.
Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Another hero that benefits well from the additional attack damage and attack range. Like with Lifestealer, Maim also further helps Bloodseeker close down the distance between the enemy target and him.
Night Stalker icon.png
  • During night time, Penta-Edge Sword synergizes very well with Hunter in the Night, providing Night Stalker with even more offensive and gap closing capabilities, making Night Stalker a real nightmare to his enemies to deal with.
Monkey King icon.png
  • Extra attack range and slow works for soldiers from Wukong's Command, helps keeping enemies inside the ring while enhancing soldiers attack range further, an enemy in the middle of the ring can get hit by all 5 soldiers simultaneously.
