    If I'm correct, Manta Style adds +30 Agi, then the sange & yasha adds +16 strength and +16 agi, then deadalus creates a higher crit chance than crystalis and Shadow blade add +30 dmg
    (I get an eaglesong for fun tho, so that's +25 or so)

    then we put into consideration Drow's +80 agi on her ult.

    so in total we have +151 agi... which is an overkill :)) I remember back then I had drow pulling of 200+ dmg with an additional 150 dmg and per attack would only last .4-.5 secs

    and spam away the first skill and we have one hell of a carry/tank

    EDIT: Daedalus is really good, although crystalis is great too, but if you want to harass enemies late game then get the deadalus. they'll never know what hit them

    you need more money for that. and a lot of farming. with random people i ha ve to spend most of the time running from bot to mid to top to cover others.
    the drow i was just playing had 163+81 damage XD

    Yeah, takes a long time to build up those items. Have you tried playing Templar Assassin? She's much like drow, and her First skill makes her invincible for a couple of seconds while doubling (i think) her dmg.

    TA's 5th skill is pretty useless for me tho

    my team was full of noobs, but they listened to my strategy and look we won. the opponents had good heros too.

    i hate those newbies who cant play, and yet think of themselves as pros and dont listen to anyone. some of them even give orders XD like RUSH MID when you are all level 4 XD and some of the opponents have got their ultimates XD

    Insta-picking is basically having the hero selection on the hero you want as soon as you get the "All pick" screen. (ie immediately a hero is selected)

    You havent experienced one part of dota yet tho. Invisible heroes. (imo the worst thing ever)

    You will come to a point in skill level where heroes like Riki , Nyx assassin and bounty hunter will be rolling over your team and no one in your team will be able to counter them or be too poor to counter them (wards and gem of sight is a counter to invisible heroes)

    That, and ofcourse the Pudge phase (the fat guy with a hook and cleaver).

    These heroes will punish your team for bad positioning (pudge's hook) and make farming alone in the map a nightmare for you (suddenly they pop up with burst damage and take you down when your alone).

    Then later on you will also face the illusion problem. Heroes like Phantom lancer(aka cancer lancer), Chaos Knight, Naga Siren coming to own you. PL is a nightmare atm. ><

    TA is a nice character but not recommended for beginners because she requires some effort on using skills (not a simple right click hero like drow/sniper). Sometimes it is a good hero against ultra noobs, as you can simply meld (go invis) in a fight and the opponents will be wondering where you went (aoe spells and nukes will still damage her in meld mode)

    Usually the combo is to blink in, go into meld and then immediately hit the hero (you hit with critical damage then).

    The shield is good early on to prevent harass during laning stage.

    Dat riki.

    I'm fed up with rubish rikis. Players pick them, then do nothing good with them.
    Lina, on the other team, seems to be the only one interested in winning. Too bad it was her alone.
    Haven't played with riki yet, but I'm going to have to change that and start going with riki before anyone else, to try and increase my odds of winning a game.

    true. rikis just stand around spying. if you are getting killed nearby, they just stand there, facing the opposite way. i wish rikis invisibility had a limit. permanent is too much.


    you cant touch me biatch XD im on faaiiiiiaarrrrrrrr

    I have encountered a player, probably with a fake account, that was playing with riki the right way. He was on the other team, though. What a nightmare.

    Uh?
    If you already have all the items but the recipe, all you have to do is get the recipe to receive the item you want. The change is instant. The recipe won't use a slot.

    i really didnt find the powers that useful.

    i love the drow ranger. she is good for attack and flee type situations.
    and after shes leveled up shes good to take on two three people. i am yet to see another hero that can go up over 400 damage so fast. i was doing 30% more damage since i always stay at max range. thats like 500 points of damage/arrow.

    most enemies at that level have 2000 hit points, i do 2 arrows to the second, so people are dead in 2 seconds XD
    and the firing rate increases even more because of the ultimate skill. XD

    is it just me or DOTA 2 has really big problems regarding their servers. I'm playing Warframe really smoothly with a friend of mine for 3 hours and with Dota 2 I just get really crappy ping.

    Also with Warframe, I play on Euro servers and gives me around 100-200ms Ping. On Dota 2 even on local servers I get really high spikes.

    Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Its a real game mood destroyer. Just mute them at the first sign. Infact, I usually mute my entire team once anyone starts to flame (because chances are that players would be friends, others just jump the band-wagon)

    Just had 2 games yesterday, they went so horrible.

    Game 1: Top lane did well, our mid didnt move from his lane, their's did. Got bottom tower, stuck together as 5 and kept taking down towers. Meanwhile our carries kept farming in jungle.

    I just hate it when I see players giving no priority to tower defense, in most games I just pick anti-push heros and am the only one doing the push back (usually with a death prophet).

    Game 2: 2 attempts to kill off drow in mid (one with DD rune). Bad skill builds, worse skillshots. Zeus went top instead of middle (mirana got middle). Game snowballed from there.

    Both games finished before the 30 min mark.

    Im really considering making a new account and ignoring team-mates and winning the game single handedly, but then there's no fun in that either.
