Death Sickle is a great item for players who have a knack of getting quickly finished in team fights thanks to its unique passive, Divine Intervention. Having momentary invulnerability allows players to pick off essential targets, be they a highly-contested objective like the Abyssal Dragon or Dark Slayer or executing the enemy team’s carries. It can also be very useful for escaping fights at low health, the hero gaining a movement speed boost while they are invulnerable.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Since most assassins have to get into the thick of fights whenever they dive the enemy carries, having this item gives them some leeway in landing the killing blow on their intended targets before disengaging. This item is effective against heroes who deal burst damage like mages.

Another amusing late-game strategy is to equip Death Sickle while Ancestral Glory’s passive is on cooldown, switching between the two passives so that the player is able to withstand multiple killing blows.
