11. Mjollnir

10. Black King Bar

(Now this thing just looks evil)

Overview: Now although BKB is an amazing item and I highly recommend it on Spectre it is not a guaranteed get out of CC free card. Some abilities in Dota 2 can not be dispelled and therefore BKB won’t be able to free you.

  • Spell immunity & Basic Dispel

Get this item if:

  • The enemy has a lot of Crowd Control

9. Aghanim’s Sceptre

  • Grants Shadow Step ability which is a miniature ultimate
  • Gives you 10 for all your attributes
  • This item gives you a bonus of 175 to HP and MP

Get this item if:

8. Blade Mail

(If don't touch me was a picture)

Overview: This one is for those players who take the last three times you’ve been focusing seriously, and Spectre makes it even worse by being the awesome carry who hurts you as you hurt her.

5. Diffusal Blade

( Ever wonder what that centre piece does? )

Overview: What’s a great way to prevent your opponents from landing their abilities? Well if they don’t have the mana they can’t cast it. Illusions also proc the mana burn from Diffusal Blade so combining this plus manta is a great way to exhaust their resources.

  • Synergizes well with Manta-Style and Haunt

Get this item if:

(Okay, nevermind this looks evil)

3. Eye of Skadi

( I wonder who's eye they took)

2. Manta Style

(Imagine coming home with this instead of groceries)

Overview: Ah yes, Manta-style creating illusions dodging abilities, and replicating Spectre’s Radiance aura. I recommend practicing managing the illusions so you can get the best bang for your buck.
