Dota 2 Best Offlane Heroes

The offlane in Dota is the most variable position in the game. Unlike other positions, the role of the offlaner is expected to change between games. Sometimes the offlaner must be tanky, sometimes the offlaner must be the initiator. Sometimes the offlaner is sacrificed (yes, feeding is not always bad), sometimes the offlaner will have the most farm. But because the offlane is so unpredictable, more heroes than you’d expect are viable in the third core role. In no particular order, our top ten offlaners in the current meta:

1. Doom

Doom and his Infernal Blade

“Face me and face the furnace!” Lucifer, the Doom has returned this meta fiercer than ever. One of the tankiest heroes you’ll see on this list, Doom is a true menace in the offlane. Scorched earth gives him insane hp regen and just enough speed to outrun most heroes. Devour provides him with the ability to scale late and if you’ve ever been doomed before, you know that this ultimate makes one enemy hero completely useless every time it’s off cool down.
