So far the games have been absolutely insane. The base race between Alliance and LGD.cn especially was ridiculous. The matches run from about 4pm EST until like 2am EST so it's hard not to catch some of it (assuming you're in the US or Europe I suppose).

:roll:

Battlefury is for melee heroes only. Used mostly for farming (as it gives cleave dmg). The cleave does not work for ranged heroes ^^
i had too much money XD first time i bought it. i just got it for the 150% mana regeneration. im sure that works on all?

Get Linkens instead if you want mana regen.

I suggest going for the Ring of Aquila, which is an upgrade from the Wraith band, provides decent regen for Drow, and other helpful stats for 985 gold only.

Drow isnt very mana dependant, so the low-cost low end mana regen items are usually enough.

i need to use a lot of mana in silencing and frost arrows. once i target an enemy i keep hitting then with frost arrows so they cant come. even before escaping i hit with a frost arrow before using shadow blade to escape.

the ring of aquila is nearly not good enough for late game. i will try linkens sphere next time. i have never actually bothered with the magical components and items in the game. more of a brute damage per second guy.

with drow leveled up i can fire 2-3 arrows a second normally and the marksmanship power helps it make it even better!

the prob with linken sphere is its not a upgraded item and i need to buy it in one go. the battlefury was an upgrade from the claymore and broadsword i already had.

if i think to much in the heat of the moment i will die, so i just got that thing since it offers so much mana, which i was running out of thanks to bloodseeker and lifestealer in the opposing team. the rest of my team was helpless and i was directing them too. plus they couldnt attack unless i silenced them.

The thing is that in Dota you need to be very efficient in item picks. Linkens is good a good defensive item (disables point spells - 1 only, then there is a cooldown), and provides regen, but the cost is just too high. You could get a BKB (magic immunity for a couple of seconds + hp + dmg) + void stone (100% mana regen compared to 150% from Linken) and be better off.

LS is not really a popular item for drow, but still has a high winrate.

If you can afford LS you are probably winning. correlation not cause.

as for item, it really depends on what the team needs and the type of hero that im using

Well It been long since I've been to this thread so maybe I'll share my build for Drow.

I get a Ring of Aquila for the very specific reason of good mana regen at start. Then I build Perseverance (Ring of Health + That orb thingy that provides 150% regen.) Then I build Power Treads or Phase boots (depends on the enemies), then Drum of endurance.

I get the Yasha first, then turn it to Manta Style (useful for pushing), then I get the Helm of Dominator for Lifesteal.

Same build goes for Luna but instead of Perseverance I get a bottle or Euls Scepter. The Added movespeed from the scepter turn luna into a freaking racecar, while also helping her Mana problems.

Just my two cents tho :) I play mainly Nightstalker, Windrunner, Luna, Naga Siren, Phantom Assassin, Puck.....

Get threads after Aquila for Drow, you want the dps output. If you feel like your health keeps on getting chipped off get lifesteal instead of perseverance (helps with jungling in midgame). Don't drum unless you are on the losing side. Yasha into Manta is fine, consider shadow blade if your team doesn't have an invis hero already. Consider BKB if they have a lot of spellcasters, a 7 second magic immune Drow is an extremely dangerous Drow.

Thanks for the input! Although I don't play Drow usually, the same thing goes for Luna

A Luna with Manta+BKB+Butterfly is a scary Luna

a luna with only manta is freaking scary,
let alone a bkb and butterfly,
the damage and the bounce attack is freaking annoying and painful.

Playing Dota in a public game, it's possible to go to any sort of builds with different combination of hero's. However with dota becoming more popular, most public players start to pick certain "combo" hero's and play them in pub, treating it like a Captain's Mode game.

So to play as a team, you must first understand the hero's spells, the range of it, what it can go through (e.g What counters BKB) and so fourth. Dota is never a simple game and it really requires lots of coordination and experience.

And also welcome to new players to Dota including fellow TPU players!! :toast::)
