Did someone say ninja ganking? Seriously. This could potentially be one of THE funnest skills ever made, push towers with an ally, help out at a gank, return to fountain for 6 seconds the possibilities are ENDLESS (not literally)

17-25. Attribute Bonus
Linken’s sphere gives Lo what he needs, survivability with a bit of mana regeneration. To be honest this is probably one of the best pickups for Lo which of course is dependent on the other team’s lineup,
Tether onto the mana burning unit is great, in combination with overcharge and spirits slowing the enemy and giving Lo and the Book minion bonus attack speed.
Before you laugh think of the ninja-ganking with tether/relocate. It’s the same concept as Furion with Dagon except that you will return to your old place as well as the opportunity to bring along an ally with you on the gank, nevertheless the burst damage coming from Dagon will help when ganking.
With Spirits and Tether and the right lane partner you can play aggressively or rather you should be. You should be looking to get a few bracers or even a vanguard early to increase your survivability when chasing with spirits and tether. Once you get relocate grab a partner with tether and gank another lane, preferably a carry hero. You can also use relocate to save a hero who is about to die.
You should be ganking all the time by now, the key to Lo is vision vision so get some wards up. Focus on trying to gank the enemy carry hero. Carry around teleport scrolls again for effective counter ganking and ganking. Everytime relocate is cooldown you should be using it. An alternative to ganking with it is pushing a tower quickly and porting back which can be used very effectively.
By now you should just be purely ganking etc. Focus on tethering a DPS hero on your team for the MS buff as well as the IAS increase that goes through tether. Relocate can be used at this point to return to the fountain to heal yourself and an ally if needed if the other team is forced to turtle in their base.
