Glaive the Grangor


Yeah, if you need to hire muscle, I have some recommendations. Just keep your voice down. Maybe you need someone stealthy-someone who can hide in the underbrush and attack outta nowhere, never see them coming? Got an assassin girl in the rafters that'll make ribbons of a body in seconds. No, not quite right. But getting warmer, am I? You want to make a big splash, do you? Leave a real impression. Maybe the target's friends will think twice ... leave town to save their own heads? Then you'll be wanting Glaive.

Glaive Meets Ringo


You thought you could call be "beast" from across the cantina. If you whispered it, you thought I wouldn't hear. You thought that distance would give you a running start. And now you are at my feet, drunk little carnie fool. That's why you lose at the dice tables, and why you return to lose again: You are only good from range.

What you need to know:
  • Glaive is a hulking brute who gets nastier and nastier as the game goes on.
  • His first ability has a knock-back that can reposition enemies to devastating effect.
  • Weapon Glaive is an attack speed and critical strike menace; Crystal Glaive melts enemies by using the Afterburn rocket for offense more than tactics.


Tips for playing Glaive:
  • Rocket past an enemy hero with Afterburn to knock them back toward your allies and turrets.
  • Glaive can be effectively built focusing on damage, critical strike or attack speed.
  • Think carefully before triggering Bloodsong since the passive lifesteal component will keep you alive.


Tips for playing Vs. Glaive:
  • Kite, kite, kite. Glaive is a lumbering beast who needs to get close to do damage.
  • Catherine's Stormguard is a great counter to Glaive's close-range attacks.
  • In lane, assume Glaive will attempt to rocket past you and knock you back toward the enemy turrets. Don't give him the chance.
  • Most people against weapon glaive don't build armor. This is crucial!
