|128px||Pharaoh is a Tank and Stunner hero. He is most powerful when he is in the middle of a team fight causing chaos so you'll want to build him to not die. Some important information for any one playing Pharaoh is knowing the Spawn Times of neutrals and Runes. If you know them well you can use Tormented Soul to its maximum to scout out runes and double spawn creeps while your doing some thing else or hit a wave or creeps right when it spawns.|
- Hellfire - Does a good amount of damage and causes a lot of mini stuns making it hard for heroes around you to move attack or cast spells. You want to use this spell whenever fighting enemy heroes and make sure that they stay in range of it.
- Wall of Mummies - This spell traps people in a wall of mummies around you and shoves enemy heroes away from you. Make sure you know who has Enhanced Marchers so you don't trap yourself and not them. This spell is good to keep your target in range of Hellfire.
- Tormented Soul - A nuke that can hit any spot on the map can be used so you can push two lanes at once, scout or kill running heroes. It's also good for jungling while you're laning.
- Wrath of the Pharaoh - This lets you get in range of people to hellfire; great for ganking people or starting a team fight.

You want to work with your teammate to try to gank the people you are laning against. If you can get near them and cast hellfire you can normally kill them. You can also use Tormented Soul to harass the other players not only in your lane but in every other lane.
You are going to need to watch the clock every minute the creeps in the forest respawn if there are no other creeps around that point we are going to use this to grow massive creep spawns at the start of the game. Normally you double spawn by hitting the creeps at 52 seconds and run so new creeps spawn but we are going to use Tormented Soul to get a lot more then 2 creep spawns while we are laning. Around 46-47 seconds you want to fire Tormented Soul so the edge of the nuke hits the creeps in the forest the nuke should land at 52 seconds and cause a double spawn. Your going to want to pick the stronger creeps to do this to so you have as many as possible. Around 9 or 10 minutes you should have a lot of creeps and you can walk over and nuke them and run so you gain experience until they are all dead.
You should be working on your tanking items and have your marchers. If you work with your team you are a strong ganker and should go into team fights and trap the other teams weaker heros so they can't get away.
Push two lanes at once and defend lanes with Tormented Soul. Help your team push, you can put a lot of pressure on the other team and you should use this to your advantage.
If you can master Pharaoh he is a very powerful hero, but he is also very easy to play wrong. You should practice double spawning with wards in a single player private game before you give it a go in a real game. Make sure you experiment with this hero since there never is one best way to play a hero good luck and have fun.
