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

Counter picks

Lone Druid is a strong and cunning character with unique abilities. He confidently overcomes obstacles and defeats enemies on any line, and in the mid lane this hero hardly has some equally strong opponents. His key advantage is the Summon Spirit ultimate.

Lone Druid not only wins in face-to-face attacks, but also knows how to protect his allies. He has a favorite animal – a Spirit Bear, who can come to the rescue at any time. Lone Druid breaks towers much faster than anyone else. He can finish the game in 25 minutes, he shows his potential and strength at all stages of the game.

Druid manages to easily find the weaknesses of the enemy, so the chances of his opponents are very low. To prevail over him, you need to know at least a couple of disadvantages of the character. If you decide to fight Lone Druid, we advise you to remember that in the third position he is too greedy, and in the first minutes of the game he cannot find his place on the map. The character also has a constant need to control two units at the same time. Knowing these disadvantages, it is quite possible to destroy the hero, the main thing is to choose the right counter pick.

Who will counter the cunning and strong Long Druid in Dota 2

It all depends on which lane you are on – hard or mid. If you are on the hard lane, then you can safely send the following characters into battle against the hero:

  • Razor is one of Lone Druid's strongest counter picks. He has a skill called Static Link, which works great on the Spirit Bear that our hero summons. When the beast approaches the creeps and begins to hit them, Razor inflicts enormous damage on him and literally drains all his strength.
  • Lifestealer. This hero's strength against Druid is the passive ability called Feast. He counters the enemy well using it. Lifestealer not only deals a lot of damage, but also quickly restores his health. In other words, he hits the Bear without losing any HP.
  • Nature's Prophet. This character has the special power Nature's Call. At the beginning of the game, the Treants he summons are much stronger than the Druid's Bear, so it is not a problem for him to drive the opponent out of the lane.

To counter our hero, you can also choose Broodmother and Enchantress. They will beat Lone Druid quite easily in the battle, but only if you know how to use them effectively.

Planning to battle Lone Druid in the mid lane? The following characters skilfully fight the character there:

  • Slardar. This character has an ult that cuts through the armor accumulated by the Spirit Bear. If he enlists the support of allies, he can deal devastating damage to Lone Druid.
  • Dazzle. This hero has the same abilities as Slardar. He knows how to pierce the armor of a bear, so he easily defeats the enemy.
  • Bane. The character uses the Nightmare ult, putting the bear into sleep, and then deals devastating blows to the Druid, giving him no chance to recover.
  • Winter Wyvern. This hero provides huge help to weak allies who are attacked by a Bear. He freezes him to the ground, and while he can't move, the allies have a chance to escape.
  • Outworld Devourer. This hero literally drains Lone Druid's health. He has a very strong intelligence, incompatible with what the enemy has. Therefore, the damage that the Outworld Devourer deals cannot be compensated by the crafty Druid.
  • Zeus. This character has the Arc Lightning ability. Along with the Static Field passive ability, he creates a lot of problems for both the Lone Druid and his Spirit Bear.

If we consider the counter picks from among the carry heroes, Naga Siren, Phantom Lancer and Chaos Knight will prevail over our character. What is their strength? The fact is that the Druid's Bear skillfully copes only with single targets. He is unable to cope with illusionists.

What items will help defeat the character

If you want a counter pick that is guaranteed to beat Lone Druid, we recommend purchasing the following items:

  • Ghost Scepter provides high-class protection against attacks not only of the character in question, but also of his beast. The artifact will not help the Lone Druid remove buffs from enemy characters, in addition, it is simply impossible to inflict any magical damage on the owner of this item.
  • Solar Crest. Spirit Bear and his owner have a lot of armor. To destroy them, it must be removed. This item is designed for just that.

In the end, we would like to say the following: without any doubts, Lone Druid is a strong and very cunning character who easily gets out of the most difficult situations, but he can be destroyed, if he faces strong opponents who have suitable items and skillfully use all opportunities.
