Earthshaker counter picks: who to choose against this hero in Dota 2

Counter picks

Earthshaker belongs to multipurpose characters. He is popular among both professionals and amateurs. His powerful disables can kill either one player or the entire team. At the same time, it does not matter to him where the enemy is – in the forest or on the mid lane.

This support is dangerous to Illusionists due to his Echo Slam ability. He jumps into the crowd of enemies, activates the ability and inflicts maximum damage. The more enemies that enter the area of effect, the more damage the enemy team takes. How to defend yourself? Consider the weaknesses of the hero.

In order to defeat Earthshaker or to hinder him as much as possible, you need to prevent him from getting Blink Dagger. It is this item that allows this hero to jump into the crowd. To do this, you need to kill him as often as possible. It is not difficult to do this, because Earthshaker depends on mana, artifacts, map knowledge and has weak armor.

What heroes counter the hero of our article

The best choice is to take two heroes and break his early game. At the same time, it is necessary to choose items and skills that are immune to magic. Let's look at Earthshaker's counter picks:

  • Puck. His advantage lies in the Dream Coil ability, which imposes silence for a long period of time, preventing Earthshaker from jumping into the crowd and dealing damage.
  • Night Stalker. Area silence and ability to fly blocks our hero's abilities. He becomes unable to press buttons.
  • Disruptor is an excellent defender. He can stop a support that has entered the battlefield, saving his team from damage. His other ability will prevent Earthshaker from using the buttons as effectively as possible.
  • Clockwerk can leave Earthshaker without mana thanks to his second ability. It creates a barrier around the hero and allows you to lock nearby enemies in it, burning mana and causing damage.
  • Outworld Devourer is able to destroy Earhtshaker. At the same time, he easily defends himself from blows due to the ability to escape in his own astral.
  • Spectre. His main strength lies in the ability to repel blows. But the difficulty is that you need to calculate the actions of the enemy and understand when an attack is planned, otherwise no one will help you in time.
  • Rubick. This hero cannot protect the team from an enemy attack. However, he can steal Earhtshaker's ability and use it against himself or the enemy team.

And remember that the main strategy is constant control and ganking, the use of defensive artifacts. Also you need to try to distance from your teammates as much as possible. After all, the effect on the crowd causes the greatest damage to the enemy team. And try to counter Earthshaker as much as you can so he can't get his ultimate ability.
