Kardel Sharpeye – Dwarven Sniper dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Kardel Sharpeye the Sniper is a ranged agility hard carry who excels at dealing heavy damage at an incredible range. His third ability, Take Aim, allows him to deal high DPS at a safe distance, and avoiding damage as he is relatively frail. He also excels at harassing enemies due to his second ability, Headshot, which gives him a chance to do extra damage and mini-stun, and his first ability, Shrapnel, which slows and deals damage over time in an area. This makes him especially efficient in middle lane. And with sufficient rune control, Sniper can make a deadly hero to be laning against especially if you are a melee Hero, such as Pudge or Bloodseeker, given that the correct precautions are made. He also scales quite nicely into late game, being able to slow and/or mini-stun fleeing heroes so they can be ganked. Though he is a rather frail hero, his potential in the hands of a good player and team is high. Sniper was born to the valley folk, deep in the mountains of Knollen. Since time immemorial, the valley folk have survived by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village–killing them from a distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. Sniper was among the best of these shootists from the valley, these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch. On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sniper took the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To miss was was to be dishonored. With his entire village standing vigil, Sniper took his shot. A steepstalker fell; the crowd cheered. But when the carcass was collected, the village grew silent, for the elders found that its central eye had been shot out. This was an ominous sign, the answer to a dark prophesy, and Sniper was sent into exile, condemned to make his way apart from his people. Only when he proves his greatness, can he return to his village home. Continue reading “Kardel Sharpeye – Dwarven Sniper dota 2 Skills Item Build guide” »
Rikimaru – Stealth Assasin dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Riki, or Rikimaru, the Stealth Assassin is a melee agility Hero that uses stealth in order to surprise enemies and quickly kill them. His trademark ability, Permanent Invisibility, allows him to sneak into the shadows to hide and slip by without giving himself away. Riki was born middle child to the great dynasty of Tahlin. With an older brother groomed for the throne, and a younger brother coddled and kept, Riki, the small middle son, seemed born for the art of invisibility. It was an art he cultivated, and one which ultimately saved his life on the night that his people were betrayed and his family slaughtered. Of all the royal line, he alone escaped – small and agile, unassuming, using smoke as cover. He cut his way out of the royal grounds, using the advantage of surprise, quietly slitting the throats of one enemy warrior after another. Now free of his royal responsibilities, Riki uses his talents in service to a new trade: stealth assassin. He silences his enemies, sharpening his skills, hoping to one day take revenge on those who killed his family and robbed him of his birthright.

Azwraith – Phantom Lancer dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Azwraith the Phantom Lancer is a melee agility hard carry and pusher because of his capability of constantly generating multiple illusions in a matter of seconds.

All of his abilities help him in his creation of images, allowing him to always have a constant companion at any time. He has a nuke skill that deals high damage, slows the target, and creates an illusion at his target’s location. His escape skill allows him to turn invisible while creating an illusion to take his place, possible tricking enemies into wasting their spells and time in trying to kill said illusion. His passive allows him to generate an illusion of himself which procs during an attack. His ultimate gives him magic resistance, an improvement to his skill Juxtapose, but most importantly allows his illusions to generate their own illusions.

Morphling dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Morphling is a ranged agility Carry that has many flexible skills and item builds. He relies strongly on his attributes, and is an effective ganker.

Morphling is an elemental power at one with the tides of the ocean, the capricious yet constrained rush of rivers, the placid calm of standing water. Neither male nor female, Morphling can take on any form, and from this innate capacity it has gained deep understanding of all the Dota 2 heroes.

Mirana – Priestess of the Moon dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Mirana the Princess of the Moon is a ranged agility Hero that uses her abilities to surprise, chase, and disable enemies. Additionally, because of her lack of early game item dependence, Mirana also plays well as a ganker in the first stages of a game. Born to a royal family, a blood princess next in line for the Solar Throne, Mirana willingly surrendered any claim to mundane land or titles when she dedicated herself completely to the service of Selemene, Goddess of the Moon. Known ever since as Princess of the Moon, Mirana prowls the sacred Nightsilver Woods searching for any who would dare poach the sacred luminous lotus from the silvery pools of the Goddess’s preserve. Riding on her enormous feline familiar, she is poised, proud and fearless, attuned to the phases of the moon and the wheeling of the greater constellations. Her bow, tipped with sharp shards of lunar ore, draws on the moon’s power to charge its arrows of light. Continue reading “Mirana – Priestess of the Moon dota 2 Skills Item Build guide” »
Luna Moonfang – Moon Rider dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Luna, the Moon Rider is a Ranged Agility carry hero. Even though she can be seen as a tempting target for enemy heroes, Luna possesses solid early game laning presence due to her Lucent Beams, a cheap, low-cooldown nuke, and her Lunar Blessing aura, which grants all nearby allied heroes increased damage. How had she been reduced to this? She was once the Scourge of the Plains, a merciless leader of men and beasts, and able to sow terror wherever she dared. Now she was far from her homeland, driven half mad from starvation and months of wandering, her army long dead or turned to worse. As she stood at the edge of an ancient forest, a pair of glowing eyes spied on from an elder branch. Something beautiful and deadly sought a meal in the wilting dusk. Without a sound, it turned and left. Fury overtook her. Clutching a rust-eaten dagger, she charged after the beast determined to reclaim even a shred of her past glory, but her quarry would not be caught. Three times she cornered the creature among the rocks and trees, and three times she pounced only to witness its fading shadow darting further into the woods. Yet the full moon shone brightly, and the creature’s trail was easy to follow. Arriving in a clearing atop a high hill, the beast’s massive feline form sat in the open, attentive and waiting. When the woman brandished her dagger, the creature reared and roared and charged. Death, it seemed, had come for her at long last in this strange place. She stood, calm and ready. A flash of movement, and the beast snatched the dagger from her hand before vanishing into the forest. Stillness. Hooded figures approached. In reverent tones they revealed that Selemene, Goddess of the Moon, had chosen her, had guided her, had tested her. Unwittingly she had endured the sacred rites of the Dark Moon, warriors of the Nightsilver Woods. Continue reading “Luna Moonfang – Moon Rider dota 2 Skills Item Build guide” »
Syllabear – Lone Druid dota 2 Skills Item Build guide. Sylla the Lone Druid is an adaptable and versatile ranged or melee agility Hero, who summons a Spirit Bear, who has a set of skills and can equip items, as his ally. With the help of his Spirit Bear, he can carry, jungle, and push lanes effectively. Long before the first words of the first histories there rose the druidic Bear Clan. Wise and just they were, and focused in their ways to seek an understanding of the natural order. The arch forces of nature saw this, and so sought the most learned among them. Wise old Sylla, clan justiciar and seer, stepped forward for his kin, and to him was given the Seed with these words: ‘When all of the world has dimmed, when civilization has left these lands, when the world is slain and wracked by the endless deserts at the end of ages, plant the Seed.’ As he grasped his trust, Sylla felt his years recede and his vitality returned. Vast knowledge burst into his mind. He found himself able to project his very will into reality and, with some concentration, alter his own physical form as well. Yet subtle whispers and cruel ears brought word of the Seed and its power to other peoples, and a terrible war crashed upon the Bear Clan. As his ancestral home burned, Sylla took his burden and fled to the wild places. Ages passed, and time and myth forgot the Bear Clan, forgot Sylla and the Seed, forgot wondrous civilizations that rose and fell in Bear Clan’s wake. For millenia, Sylla has waited, waited for word from his deities, waited for peace to come to the ever warring realms, waited in exile and in secret for the end of all things and for the conclusion of his sacred commitment, preparing himself always to face and destroy whatever would dare threaten his purpose.
