In our last article we discussed some basic info about minions, today we will go a little bit deeper. We will talk about their utility, and how they can help you.
Vision from Minions
Vision. that provided by creeps is needed for a perfect map control. When you pushed all lines, opponents can not move around the map without being exposed. This allows you and your team feel easier and start more aggressive rotation. Especially useful it becomes, if you have a team that need to gank enemies.
When you playing at a high level, team is constantly used vision that provided by creeps, for the creation of ganks. This can be achieved by creating pressure on the various lines, thus forcing the enemy to move. After determining the trajectory of the path of an enemy (for example some hero heading to clean up a large stack at the top), you can easily take advantage of it.
Remember that minions appear on each side at the same moment, so you can predict their movements. This can be extremely useful, you can predict when new wave of creeps will appear, and save your mana for them!
Your play around minions is quite important in the duels. One of the most basic elements for understanding that minions deal damage, and this damage can be lethal! Never underestimate their power, especially in the early game. It will not be too smart to fight with the enemy character under his creeps without proper support. They will cause a ton of damage, if you will just stand still and let them attack you.
In addition, creeps not only inflict damage, they can also help you to heal yourself by the health spheres. These spheres have become extremely important. Blizzard has recently doubled healing effect, which provides by Globes.
The importance of creeps can not be underestimated. You should always watch at your position. In addition, the creeps are able to block a huge amount of Skilshots, for example, stun from Muradin or Dehaqas tongue. In addition, they can shoot down enemy heroes from horses, that are chasing after you. Creeps can save your life in certain scenarios.
