LEORIC, THE SKELETON KING

THIS IS A GUIDE TO LEORIC, WHO IS THE MANLIEST HERO IN DOTA THAT DOES NOT HAVE TESTICLES.

AUTHOR’S NOTE:
THIS GUIDE IS NOT FOR EM GAMES.

THIS GUIDE IS CONCISE. YOU WILL FIND NO WALLS OF TEXT HERE.

A KEY THING MOST GUIDE READERS DO NOT GET IS THAT SKILL AND ITEM BUILDS ARE FLUID. I WOULD ARGUE THAT THERE IS NO SKILL BUILD FOR ANY HERO THAT IS CONCRETE WITH EVERYTHING SITUATION. FOR EXAMPLE, I ONCE PLAYED A GAME WHERE EVERYONE WAS PUDGE. I MAXED FLESH HEAP FIRST, WHICH IS SUPREMELY RETARDED IN ANY OTHER SITUATION.

THE METAGAME
DO NOT PICK LEORIC IF THE ENEMY HAS PICKED THESE HEROES (THEY ARE FAGS):

Bone Clinkz, The Bone Fletcher Guide By Fallen-Issachar

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

This guide was created by Fallen-Issachar, thanks!

Discuss this post at forums here.

Range: 600 | | Move Speed: 300 | Primary: AGI
Str: 15 + 1.6 | Agi: 22 + 3 | Int: 16 + 1.55
Damage: 37 – 43 | HP: 435 | Mana: 208
HP Regen: 0.7 | Mana Regen: 0.65
Attack Speed: 1.33 (+ 22% IAS) | Armor: 2.1

Forward:

Clinkz is one of these heros that I simply love, and for no good reason except he is one of the BEST heros for pubs and TDA. He is not league material simply because everyone gets wards and alot of carries can either do more damage or contribute valuable stuns / slows. That does NOT mean clinkz is weak, it simply means he is outpicked by more league approporate heros.

In this guide you will learn of a very tested strat (by me). I dont know who else uses this strat, and I really dont even care. You can trust me, Issachar, a pub player, for the awesomeness of this strat. The sheepstick strat.

Advantages of Clinkz:
-Almost 522 Movespeed with the new windwalk
-Very high agility
-Very high damage
-Amazing attack speed

Weakness of Clinkz:
-No real team contribution
-Lack of slow or disable
-Easily killed


Strafe (T)
Fire a large number of arrows in a short time period.
Lasts 10 seconds.
Level 1 – 20% increased attack speed.
Level 2 – 40% increased attack speed.
Level 3 – 60% increased attack speed.
Level 4 – 80% increased attack speed.
Mana Cost: 90
Cooldown: 30

Amazing attack steroid, allowing you to attack like a machine gun. Turn on strafe and make sure you are attacking something, dont let it go to waste.

Venomancer, the Lesale Deathbringer Damage And Support Guide by ImbaCore

Sunday, October 5th, 2008
Discuss this post at forums here.
IÅ“For those obsessed with death, poison is a necessary study. However, Lesale went a step too far. He experimented upon himself with various toxins and chemicals so that he could learn the secrets of death. These twisted his mind and mutated his body into a hideous creature which embodies an immense hatred for all things pure. He can strike an enemy with a concentrated shot of poison or even spread a toxic gas throughout an entire area, severely weakening beast and human alike.

[1.0] – Introduction
Team Role: Damage Support


The guide gets revamped from its old stage to the current Venomancer being played today with a few modifications. Venomancer is a hunter. The guide is names Damage Support because all he needs to do is activate his ultimate and the team should do what they can from there.

I know what you might be thinking, a copy from PsychicDog and ChickenMctest just by looking at the item build? No, the strategy is different here. Although it is familiar, this strategy has existed since the 6.0x days but why post a similar guide now? I got tired of updating the same guide and I have failed to post any of my stock guides here so here I am with Venomancer.

Complete Idiot’s Guide to Terrorblade, The Soul Keeper by kalorful

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

This guide was created by kalorful. Nice job, thank!

Introduction


Foreword
This is a guide on how to play Terrorblade as a jungle hero. Please, no spam about me not getting soulsteal earlier, because 1) You don’t need soulsteal to jungle and 2) This is a guide to JUNGLE terrorblade.

Analysis of recent changes
With the introduction of 6.52c, a number of changes happened which directly benefits Terrorblade.
1. The buffing of metamorphosis
2. The buffing of SnY
3. The nerfing of blink dagger.

What does this mean? It means that Terrorblade can now deal massive DPS and make himself useful earlier in the game with SnY, whilst his enemies must try a lot harder to escape the relentless beatdown from the FIREBALLS OF JUSTICE with blink dagger not being able to activate after damage.

Why is Terrorblade the most powerful carry?
Let us take a look at the list of the top 3 classic carries in the game which I deem to be Terorblade, Void, and Spectre.

Compared to the other two, Terrorblade’s main advantage is that he can jungle to avoid a crappy early game and farm as fast as a dual laner if not faster.

Terrorblade is also less prone to disables, due to the fact that he has 2 images up. Disable one, and you still got the other two laying a harsh serving of pain upon you.

Whats more, TB can also assume a ranged mode to deal out DPS. This avoids the disadvantages of melee DPS heroes such as being more prone to get hurt due to closer proximity to enemy, and getting blocked by other units from dealing damage to intended target.

He is also a lot better at taking down tower and raxes very quickly – the images rape.
