            Fifth 4head HI MOM


              sorry but how can u not mention ck lina in this? its one of the strongest duolanes for ages now. only becomes weak against great aoe dmg lategame or counter stun like lc abba. But even then its strong-

              random fried rice

                how can u not mention jugger + void lane


                  Nuke from a distance with Stifling Dagger?? when did 90 damage become a nuke? We are talking about the lane phase right?


                    also, shadow shaman + any right-clicker.

                    Your MOM!!

                          'while also staying safe through long range and Bane’s Nightmare End.' Wrong spell I think, unless maybe you are referring to the potential for Bane to dodge damage, I assume you mean nightmare?

                                    probably the worst explanation for why wisp is a good dual laner ive ever seen LOL


                                      Some very unusual choices here in this article, people in the comments seem to have the right ideas!

                                      I did a video of my top 10 favourites a while back:

                                        magnus+techies the overlords of offlane duos, enemy trilane for their safelane? no problem, 3 man skewer into mines ez triple kill first blood. If all goes well you will win mmr is 5 mins to their team ragequitting.

                                        The Ancient One

                                          @kvo, so what is a good explanation for you?

                                          Giga OOF

                                            If peenoise will comment here, he will suggest drow and sniper at offlane, legion commander at mid, and pa and antimage at safelane

                                            Homme viril

                                              best dual ever in offlane: necrophos+kunkka, harass is so tronk they can't even touch a creep, works against trilane too. I did it with a friend for fun, we made their slark go to their ofllane in 2 min and we took the top tower in 5 min, game was won in 25 min lol.

                                                  Kunkka and clock offlane
                                                  Super strong against anyone with combo X - cog - battery - torrent

                                                  And dont forget the mighty mirana with bane / kunkka


                                                    Phoenix and Undying offlane. Holy shit man, the fire thingy that comes from phoenix make you unable to hit the tomb, not to mention the high amount of harass these two have even when soloing the lane.

                                                      damn everyone's saying "how bout this, how bout that" dual lanes .. he doesnt need to mention everything .. but how bout techies and tusk dual lanes?

                                                      Frizbee Alert

                                                        negrophos tiny techies is better at maximizing the effectiveness of techies which is more important currently compared to maximizing tusk effectiveness.


                                                          The listed combos aren't the really strong and scary ones....

                                                            Brood/Cancer/m33po + Dazzle = combo wombo

                                                            and where the fuck is the classic Lich + Doom offlane

                                                                Before you rush to comment, "OMG HE FORGOT ______ HERO COMBO, WTF, REPORTED", go back and actually read this part:

                                                                "There are timeless classics that most people know of ... But these are just a fraction of combinations you can run."

                                                                i.e. this post isn't meant to spout the same old combos everybody already knows. It's supposed to propose some relatively new (if questionable) ideas. Yes, he probably knows about Tusk + Techies. No, he's not going to mention it when everybody knows about it.

                                                                On another note, I haven't seen anyone in this thread mention CK + AA yet. Scary stuff, that. CK + Omni is also a classic.


                                                                  How can you not mention ursa + nature's prophet? best combo ever bruh


                                                                    No mention of CM + CK.


                                                                      not to mention techies + lifestealer with aghs + spirit breaker

                                                                      Nitro 🌟


                                                                        dragon energy

                                                                            Well, things like core Lifestealer or Weaver offlane are rather situational. Depends on your other lanes, which makes these examples not very useful. Usually you want to have some kind of initiator and/or bracer in the offlane farming position. I mean it's Dota, nothing is well defined, but each team needs a couple of core components. And it's usually hard to play if you don't have anyone who can stand in front or initiate.




                                                                                Slark+AA is hellish to play against and so is the Veno+Viper lane.

After lvl 2, you can easily teleport the target, have CM freeze it and finish it with CK. It's actually so unfair its funny.
