DOTA 2 Riki Guide, Build & Strategy
DOTA 2 Riki Guide, Build and Strategy (Rikimaru the Stealth Assassin). Riki is one of the pure agility heroes which heavily rely on his agility stats combined with his invisibility. His trademark skill, Permanent Invisibility, allow him to go invisible and let him cast skills or items without breaking his invisibility. The invisibility only broke the moment he attack.
Riki Background Story
Riki was born middle child to the great dynasty of Tahlin. With an older brother groomed for the throne, and a younger brother coddled and kept, Riki, the small middle son, seemed born for the art of invisibility. It was an art he cultivated, and one which ultimately saved his life on the night that his people were betrayed and his family slaughtered. Of all the royal line, he alone escaped—small and agile, unassuming, using smoke as cover. He cut his way out of the royal grounds, using the advantage of surprise, quietly slitting the throats of one enemy warrior after another. Now free of his royal responsibilities, Riki uses his talents in service to a new trade: stealth assassin. He silences his enemies, sharpening his skills, hoping to one day take revenge on those who killed his family and robbed him of his birthright.
