Dota 2 Techies Guide, Build and Strategy (Squee Spleen and Spoon the Goblin Techies). Techies is a unique hero with exploding skill sets. Most of his skill is not suited for direct combat. Even so, they are a nightmare for the enemies thanks to their invisible mines and remote bombs!

Goblin Techies Background Story

Background Story

In the storied saga of Dredger’s Bight, no business has ever been more reviled than Techies Demolitions. Then again, Dredger’s Bight no longer exists. Nor does Toterin. Or even Trapper Town. In fact, if one were to track the history of Techies Demolitions they might notice that shortly after Techies appear, towns tend to disappear. Like every inevitable disaster surrounding Techies, the obliteration of Dredger’s Bight began with an invention. Tasked with designing a safer way of detonating explosives in the mines beneath the city, pyrotechnic prodigies Squee, Spleen, and Spoon developed their most outlandish creation yet: a button which, when pressed, would trigger a distant device to spark a fuse.

Overeager to test their invention, the trio stuffed barrel after barrel with flamesalt explosives, piling every corner of their tiny workshop high with the newly developed remote bombs. From this stockpile they plucked a single payload, burying it in a far away field. As they cowered in a ditch, Spleen pressed the detonator button. Yet after a moment, nothing happened. Confused, he stood up, pressing his button again and again until, finally, an explosion tore a hole in the field. Elated, Squee and Spleen turned toward home just as a massive wave of sound and force arrived to knock them over.

Bewildered, their ears ringing from the unexpected blast, they gathered in the dingy miasma to see a smoking ruin where their workshop once stood. Chunks of wood and stone continued to fall as the yawning crater before them slowly deepened into an expanding pit. The whole of Dredger’s Bight shuddered, and then gradually started to slide into the mines below as its panicked residents fled.

Sitting at the edge of their sinking home they grinned and giggled, as giddy at the possibilities as they were oblivious to the scorn of their former neighbors. They wondered only one thing: how could they trigger an even bigger blast?

Goblin Techies Skills

Land Mines Plant an invisible mine that explodes when an enemy steps near. The explosion will deal less damage if the enemy is farther away from the mine when it explodes. Mines explode 0.3 seconds after being triggered. If the number of mines planted exceeds the mine limit, the oldest mine will explode. Damages buildings.

DAMAGE: 300 / 400 / 500 / 600

Lay them on paths or places which heroes tend to use. You can also use it to secure area around yourself to prevent ambushes and have an emergency escape route

Stasis Trap
Plant an invisible trap that stuns nearby enemy units when triggered.

Even though the stun AOE is 400, it will only triggered when the enemies in the 200 AOE.

Suicide Squad, Attack!
Techies sacrifice themselves for the greater good, dealing massive area of effect damage. More damage is dealt to units closer to Techies when they explode. Techies’ respawn time is reduced by 50% when killed by this ability.

Use this only when there’s no chance for you to survive or when you want to save your ally. If you are dead using this ability, it will count as suicide and the enemy won’t get any gold or experience.

Focused Detonate
Detonate all remote mines in the target area.

Minefield Sign
Plant a warning sign to remind enemies to step lightly. Only one sign can exist at a time.

Remote Mines
Plant an invisible explosive that will only detonate when triggered. Does not damage buildings.

1. Put them when there is no enemies or foes.
2. Best place to put Remote Mines is on the creep paths or your own tower since enemies creep won’t destroy the Remote Mines.
3. Don’t blow your Remote Mine

Zeus is the natural counter to Techies thanks to the true sight gained from casting Lightning Bolt. Necronomicon 3, Gem and Sentry can also ruin your day as Techies. However, it’s not the end. Place your ward in the uphill and use the map fog to your advantages. Even if they carried Gem, they still won’t be able to see uphill and still vulnerable to your mines.
