When Argus takes or deals damage, his blade is empowered. The lower his HP is, the faster the blade charges. When fully charged, his next Basic Attack hits twice and slightly slashes towards enemies.
Argus puts out a demonic hand in the designated direction, dealing Physical Damage to an enemy hero and moving to the front of the target. If the hand fails to hit an enemy hero, Argus pulls himself to the location.
Use Again: If Demonic Grip kills a target, Argus makes an extra slash toward the enemy he captures, dealing Physical Damage.
After a short period of time, Argus strikes enemies with his demonic blade, dealing Physical Damage and slowing them by 80%. The demonic blade curses the injured enemy for 5 seconds, and they will leave a curse trail granting Argus extra movement speed as he pursues them.

Tips & Tricks
With abilities that pull him into enemies and enhance his attacks, Argus specializes in charging into fights and bursting enemies down. His ultimate ability allows him to ignore death, helping him soak up damage enemies throw at him as he leads his allies to victory.
As a fighter able to avoid death, Argus is able to build very offensively if he plays around his ultimate.
Warrior Boots boost his defense stats when in battle, perfect for helping him engage on high priority enemy targets without taking too much damage.
Items like Blade of Despair greatly increase his Physical Attack. This, paired with his enhanced basic attacks will make him unstoppable at cutting through enemy targets.
Corrosion Scythe has a chance to slow enemies, making it harder for them to kite Argus. It also boosts his already high attack speed, allowing him to charge his blade even faster and enhance his attacks.
Don’t be afraid to lead your team into fights or even seek out lone targets and hunt them down. Argus excels at both types of fighting; his ultimate allows him to front line into the enemy team while allies back him up, and his enhanced basic attacks allow him to pursue solo enemies and win duels.
Argus can use his Demonic Grip to engage on enemies, closing the gap with ease. His Meteoric Sword can follow up, cursing the enemy and granting him movement speed as he pursues them.
Eternal Evil needs to be used strategically to get the most value out of it. The ability to not die for 5 seconds enables Argus to fight very aggressively (even under turrets!) Use it to force enemies into submission and escape unscathed.
Remember, turret damage does not apply to Eternal Evil. While it will not kill you, it will not heal you, either. Be careful of enemy teams who know how to counter or play around Argus’ ultimate. He can be very vulnerable to crowd control and burst damage once he comes out of his ultimate, reducing his usefulness to his team.
If enemies are playing around your ultimate successfully, choose instead to seek out duels and help your team react to fights rather than starting them.
Argus can play aggressively, making the Assassin emblem page a smart pick with upgrades in Bravery and Invasion giving him added damage and physical penetration.
High and Dry boosts his damage when dueling enemies, perfect for split pushing objectives and forcing the enemy team to come and stop you. Use this to pressure areas of the map with your team. If you are in one side lane pushing to base, enemies will have to come stop you — and with Eternal Evil up, this will take them some time to do. During this time, have your teammates push objectives on the opposite side of the map uncontested.
