DotA Heroes Guides - Ursa Warrior

Ursa Warrior

Ursa Warrior

Before the invasion of the Scourge, a race of intelligent bears called furbolgs cultivated a quiet spiritual society deep in the heart of Azshara. With most of their kind murdered and corrupted by the Undead, the normally isolated furbolgs were forced to flee to the Sentinel for protection. In return, the furbolgs have sent their mightiest Ursa Warrior into battle on the Sentinel behalf. Enraged by the defilement of his people's sacred land, Ulfsaar is able to channel his fury into a series of extremely quick and brutal swipes, using his razor-sharp claws to overpower his foes and literally tear them apart.

Hero Abilities

Earthshock Earthshock

Slams the ground, dealing damage to and slowing the movement speed of nearby enemy land units.
Lasts 4 seconds.

Level 1 - 70 damage, 25% slow.
Level 2 - 120 damage, 35% slow.
Level 3 - 170 damage, 45% slow.
Level 4 - 220 damage, 55% slow.

Cooldown: 7 seconds.

Level 1: 75 mana, 7 sec cooldown.
Level 2: 75 mana, 7 sec cooldown.
Level 3: 75 mana, 7 sec cooldown.
Level 4: 75 mana, 7 sec cooldown.

Personally, I do not think this skill is useful in early game, unless you could not farm well, you can go for this skill. After max Fury Swipes and Overpower, you can start adding this skill. This skill could slow enemy down, very effective with Overpower, Fury Swipes and Enrage.

Overpower Overpower

Sends Ulfsaar into a rage until he can expend his energy on a target. Lasts 15 seconds or 5 attacks.

Level 1 - 100% increased attack speed.
Level 2 - 200% increased attack speed.
Level 3 - 300% increased attack speed.
Level 4 - 400% increased attack speed.

Cooldown: 10 seconds.

Level 1: 45 mana, 10 sec cooldown.
Level 2: 55 mana, 10 sec cooldown.
Level 3: 65 mana, 10 sec cooldown.
Level 4: 75 mana, 10 sec cooldown.

This is a useful skill, with Fury Swipes and Enrage, Ursa Warrior could make high damage output for killing heroes, as well as farming very fast in neutral creeps.

Fury Swipes Fury Swipes

Each attack opens the wound deeper in the target, causing subsequent attacks to deal increased damage.

Level 1 - 6 bonus damage per attack.
Level 2 - 12 bonus damage per attack.
Level 3 - 18 bonus damage per attack.
Level 4 - 24 bonus damage per attack.

Orb effect.


This is a useful skill as well. Every attack stacks 24 bonus damage, in other word, the more attacks Ursa Warrior made, the more damage it stacks. This is the main skill for solo-ing Kael the Invoker.
* Beware of the Orb effect. Does not stack with Battlefury as well.

Enrage Enrage

When activated, greatly increases Ulfsaar's damage based on his current life.

Level 1 - 4% of Ulfsaar's current life is dealt in damage.
Level 2 - 5% of Ulfsaar's current life is dealt in damage.
Level 3 - 6% of Ulfsaar's current life is dealt in damage.

Cooldown: 25 seconds.

Level 1: 0 mana, 25 sec cooldown.
Level 2: 0 mana, 25 sec cooldown.
Level 3: 0 mana, 25 sec cooldown.

Powerful skill. I will normally make two Heart of Tarasque with Ursa Warrior, and will have more than 4k HP. With Level 3 Enrage, the bonus damage will be more than 240 ( 4k x 6% ), it is like a free Divine Rapier. Besides killing heroes, Enrage is good for farming in neutral creeps, as it requires 0 mana. With Enrage and Overpower, we could solo first roshan at Level 7 with a Vanguard.

How to play this hero?

Skill Points

Level 1: Earthshock (Good for escaping, and farming for sometimes)
Level 2: Fury Swipes
Level 3: Fury Swipes
Level 4: Overpower
Level 5: Fury Swipes
Level 6: Enrage
Level 7: Fury Swipes (Can start farming in neutral creep with good killing speed)
Level 8-10: Overpower (Max)
Level 11: Enrage
Level 12~14: Earthshock
Level 15: Stat
Level 16: Enrage (Max)
Level 17~25: Stat


Starting I will suggest to get two or three Circlet and some Ancient Tangos. With Fury Swipes, it will not be very tough to farm. Try to get Vanguard at Level 6 or 7, after combined Vanguard, you could go solo Roshan.

The way of soloing roshan
Normally after the first hit you made on Roshan, he will throw a stun on u. So, just normal attack him a hit. After his stun, walk a bit backward and cast Overpower. When overpower is cooling down (around 6 o'clock), walk forward and try to attack him (before attacking, cast Enrage). When overpower is done, cast it again. Try to make all attack with Overpower and Enrage, it helps to kill roshan fast, which mean the lesser damage you need to tank. Repeat the steps, you can definitely defeat(solo) Roshan.

After Vanguard, my suggestion is, get a Boot of Speed (Power Thread is not a must, because later on you could make Boot of Travel) and follow by Reaver, Vitality Booster, Heart of Tarasque.

Another option, you could go for Dagger of Escape or Lothar Edge.

When you some basic items, you could kill quite easily with teamates' supports.

For next items, you could go for Boot of Travel. And following by another Heart of Tarasque or Butterfly

For expert player or with good supported teamates, you could go for Divine Rapier.

* Beware of Orb Effect. Battlefury does not stack as well.
