Passive: Spear of Quiescence

Moskov’s basic attack can penetrate the targets and deal damage to enemies behind them. Hitting enemies successfully will reduce the cooldown of Abyss Walker and Spear of Misery by 0.7s.

Skill 1: Abyss Walker

Moskov uses the power of shadow to teleport to the specified position, enhancing attack’s penetration ability and increasing 20% attack speed, lasting 3s.

Skill 2: Spear of Misery

Moskov strikes at an enemy hero with full strength, dealing 140 pts of physical damage and knocking back the target. If the airbone target collides with another enemy hero, then both enemies will receive 210 pts of physical damage and be stunned for 1s. If knocking into obstacles, the target will be stunned for 2s. The enemy's that hit cannot go into stealth mood for a while.

Ultimate Skill: Spear of Destruction

Moskov throws out the Spear of Destruction after powering up shortly, dealing 450 pts of physical damage to enemies along a straight line. Every enemy it hits, it increases 10 pts of physical attack to Moskov, stacking up to 5 times, lasting 5s.

There are two emblems that is recommended to be used on Moskov. Assassin or Marksman Emblem.

If you want to use Assassin Emblem, go 3 points for Agility (Movement Speed) and Invasion (Physical Penetration).

For talent, use Bounty Hunter to help you get farmed quickly or Killing Spree. The benefit of using Assassin Emblem is the increased Movement Speed for Moskov, and it makes each individual basic attack hurt more because of the physical penetration. This is good, as most of your build will likely consist of attack speed items thus lesser need for attack speed stat on emblems.

If you decide to use Marksman instead, you can give 3 pts to Crit Chance and Crit Damage. You may also give pts to Lifesteal but you will only feel the lifesteal if you can deal enough damage already.

Benefits of using Marksman Emblem are more attack speed and higher crit rate and damage.

For the talent, the most recommend talent is Electro flash since it gives you movement speed to chase enemy heroes, reposition, and retreat. The small health regen is also a great bonus to help you stay in lane more often and it help with early game health problems.

Weakness Finder Talent is also effective in team fights and has a chance to slow the enemy. So this can be an option too.

Weapon Master is the least commonly used but it is very helpful if your build focuses on more physical attack stat rather than attack speed or crit.

Spell Recommendations:

Aegis: to survive early game burst damage and late game sustain. This saves you in crucial moments.

Inspire: for extra physical defense reduction and attack speed stat for 5s. Commonly used by newbies.

Retribution: to secure killing jungle monsters, lord and turtle. Used in hypercarry strat.

Purify: to counter CC effects

Flameshot: for exhibition commonly. Especially for doing the flameshot trick. But this is also useful to deal a bit of dmg and knockback targets but not highly recommended.

Gameplay Tips
  1. Recommended lane is gold lane unless chosen to be the main core that will clear the jungle.
  2. Use skill 1 to reposition, escape or chase targets
  3. Make sure to utilize skill 2 by stunning the target into a wall
  4. Get assists away from the teamfight by using ult. Just make sure to hit an enemy
  5. You may also use your ult to secure kills
  6. Ult can also be used early on since it gives bonus physical attack that can make your succeeding attacks deals more damage.
  7. About mana problem early game, just learn to manage your mana. Don't spam skills when not in teamfight.
Demon Shoes is actually not a necessity for Moskov. You have the option to buy two magic necklace at the start of the game then upgrading it later on into Endless Battle


1. Look at the minimap when aiming using your ult.

2. Your passive makes your basic attack penetrates targets. Thus, position yourself where you can hit more targets in a straight line.

Very helpful to deal more damage. More damage also means more lifesteal. Your second skill can also deal damage and CC two heroes if you push an enemy hero into another enemy hero.

3. Flameshot Trick

Flameshot > Skill 1 > Skill 2 > Basic Attacks to finish the target.

You have to be in a range near the target where Flameshot can be use to knock it back.

If you have noticed, the combining the cooldown reduction build and the gameplay tips will help you to make Moskov a Stun Machine. This is an underrated tactic which seems the original idea on why his passive can also reduce his second skill's cooldown.

Hope this guide helps and stay tuned for more.
