    The F2P thing is still unknown.
    It's assumed, and a lot has pointed towards it, but nobody knows at this time.

    Plus it's access to the Beta which is a sought after thing. They're paying for access now, not when it comes out, which is why they think such items are worth it.

    obviously, doesn't change that having patience will turn out to be more profitable in the end for you (trade games for other games that cost money, not a possibly f2p game)

    OBVIOUSLY if you miss a hook in the entire game it's YOUR fault if your team loses

    Even if you are 10/0/20

       I've been blamed for losing the game for failing 3 hooks in the entire match when I was carrying my team

    She ain't kinky, she's paper. Like, so little HP, if enemy Gondar is farmed enough he can 1 shot you easily even if you have point booster and a couple of bracers.

    She's like Leshrac. In right position, hurts, in wrong position, gets hurt.

    Spirit breaker is pretty cool. I am building him with a magic wand early then building ancient janggo and mask of madness with power treads as core and then build a BKB. After the BKB if the game isn't over by then I build a heart. I also use the recommended starting items because they seem to be working for me.

    Is this a good build or am I doing it horribly wrong?

    I just realised how much Dota I've been playing.

    I have 885 hours played. Now to put this into perspective, I've been in the Beta for precisely 5 months and 19 days. I've played 1675 hours of TF2, and I've been playing that for 3 years, 6 months and 29 days.

    Just over half the time in 13% of the time. Holy cow.

    Once you got Janggo, Urn of Shadow, and Mask of Madness, everything is situational.

    Most of the time I do this.

    Are you targeted physically a lot ? Blademail.
    Are you a primary disable target ? BKB.
    Enemy team has that one guy that does crapload of damage ? Heaven's Halberd.
    Enemy team always stay close to eachother ? Scepter.

    please dont use a completely static build. e.g if the enemy team is having a coordinated stroke and they have no disables then you can pretty much just skip the bkb

    Can you add me on steam? You seem like you're mastered this pretty much.
    Sure, but you probably don't want to play with me. lol

    I'll answer whatever questions though.

    Don't build MoM. Don't build MoM on anyone but Faceless.

    Yeah it happens, I built up 300 plus hours for Dota 2.

    But i've also came close to 1,000 hours in the Source SDK as well.

    To be honest it works really well on Barathrum if you can pick alone targets, the original stun from the Charge plus the increased attack speed (= increased Bash chances) can disable the target all the way to his death.

    Ya don't say?


    If someone else shows up you're fucked harder than a high school prom date. Don't get MoM on Barathum. That's one of the more completely retarded suggestions. If you want attack speed, get a Hyperstone. It's only 200 more gold and it can build into two good items, both viable on Bara.

    Bara is STR hero, so he has innate tankiness. Why not Mask if it adds attack speed on top of movement speed ?

    Innate tankiness goes out the windows when you take 30% extra damage from everything.

    I can understand the Hyperstone choice, but MoM also has Lifesteal, annd both items that you can build with Hyperstone are not always the best choices.

    If you need lifesteal that badly, Satanic would be a better choice, probably.

    Especially since it will make you even tankier.

    Pretty much this. Hyperstone/Helm of the Dominator is expensive but they both upgrade into valuable things.

    Helm of the Dominator actually costs less than Mask of Madness.
    And you can use it to stack a creep camp(or 2, or 3 if you're good enough) while being nowhere near it.

    You don't have the time nor the money to build a Satanic in most cases tho, since it's not worth taking it before your cores (Urn, Hyperstone/MoM, Janggo, Treads), and after that you have better items to build, and even after that, you don't have the time nor the money to build a Satanic, and you already fell off too much.

    Then just build the fucking Helm of the Dominator.
    It's cheaper than MoM and gives you armor AND lifesteal.
