Zweihander is a unique item that allows mages to deal some decent damage with their normal attacks. In terms of stats, Zweihander grants decent ability power, mana, and movement speed. However, its two passives, Rapid Blade and The Light, are the real reason mages want this item. The two synergize well together, Rapid Blade giving bonus attack speed each time the user attacks, while The Light buffs normal attacks with 20% of the hero’s ability power as additional damage. Since every mage will have been bolstering their ability power, a single Zweihander-empowered normal attack can pack a lot of punch.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Kahlii and Preyta are prime candidates for this item. The Rapid Blade effect makes the most out of Kahlii’s Damnation passive and Preyta’s Disciple of the Plague ability by empowering their normal attacks. Other magic auto attackers could find this item quite useful as well.

Fun fact: Zweihander boosts base movement speed the most in the game outside of movement items (plus it’s not a unique passive), so look no further if you want to troll your opponents and allies by hitting the maximum movement speed.
