[1.45+] Shadow's Guide to AoS Incomplete


Recommended Posts

Shadow Geminus



Primary Role: Carry

Secondary Roles: Ganker/Psuedo-Initiator

Lore: - The Zer'atai have been known for the tradition of adorning their armor with the bones of slain zerg. However such traditions would not serve this ill-fated templar well, as a lapse in judgement permenatly fused him to his armor. Stripped of his name, origins, and sanity, the shadow entered the Dark Void itself, where he was greeted warmly by the Dark Voice.


The Dark Voice channels energy through the Shadow allowing him to blur the lines between reality and The Void.


Summary: Shadow is probably one of the best carries currently in the game, this is becasuse he can simply do EVERYTHING and is good at all stages in the game, making it easier for him to get ahead than other carries.



-High weapon damage

-AOE nuke that scales with weapon damage

-Psudo-initiation skill

-Passive speed buff

-Can break the ASS cap with Ulti



-Needs items to be very effective

-Extremely reliant on ambushing

To Come


I would just like to say one thing, is that shadow benefits extremely from early weapon damage. So I almost always get multiple Duran's Machette's (No more than 3), because it gives you lots of weapon damage, as well as a sizable amount of HP, which is one thing shadow lacks throughout the game.

Uh I can't add any more pictures cause i have exceeded the amount of bytes im allowed to have

Good job. I was too lazy to remake a Shadow guide. :DuransBuckler:


You probably need to upload the images to a different website to get past the limit. Personally I use Flickr, thought purely because it was the first result in my Google search.
