Dota 2 Lore - Shadow Fiend:
It is said that Shadow Fiend has the soul of a poet, and in fact he has thousands of them. Over the ages he has claimed the souls of poets, priests, emperors, beggars, slaves, philosophers, criminals and (naturally) heroes; no sort of soul escapes him. What he does with them is unknown. No one has ever peered into the Abysm whence Shadow Fiend reaches out like an eel from among astral rocks. Does he devour them one after another? Does he mount them along the halls of an eldritch temple, or pickle the souls in necromantic brine? Is he merely a puppet, pushed through the dimensional rift by a demonic puppeteer? Such is his evil, so intense his aura of darkness, that no rational mind may penetrate it. Of course, if you really want to know where the stolen souls go, there's one sure way to find out: Add your soul to his collection.

Dota 2 Shadow Fiend Guide

Shadow Fiend Skill 1: Shadowraze (Q W E)
Shadow Fiend razes the area in front of him, dealing damage in an area.

Shadow Fiend Skill 2: Necromastery
Shadow Fiend gains 2 bonus damage for each soul he steals. On death, he releases half of them from bondage.

Shadow Fiend Skill 3: Presence of the Dark Lord
Shadow Fiend's presence reduces the armor of nearby enemies.

Shadow Fiend Skill 4: Requiem of Souls (R)

  1. Start with Shadow Raze for early harass/kill. 3 Iron Branches, 2 agilely slippers, Either a healing slave or some tango.

    -Buy order
    -Wraith Band's (to replace your slippers)
    -Power Treads
    -Bottle (optional- but useful for runes if you are mid lane and ganking power)
    -Blink Dagger

    The ultimate takes one second to fire. The closer the enemy to you the more damage they will take. The more creeps and heroes you kill the more damage you will do and the more damage the ultimate will do. Keep in mind if you use the ultimate You will loose half the souls and have to be built back up.
