    Your mana bar which only has a use at level 6-11.

    Before then, it's the only thing you can cast. Afterwords, your int gain is high enough where you can give 0 fucks about regen even with no regen items.

    Shrapnel is a great slow, but if you don't bother using it that probably explains why you think sniper sucks so much.

    That said, I have a terrible record as sniper because I played like my first 25 games as him. Before I knew what the fuck I was doing.

    Well my core item on sniper is forcestaff, which I use to get on top of cliffs so I can snipe them from places they can't reach.

    So I don't know really.

    This could be useful, if enemies didn't have any ranged hero. Otherwise ,sitting duck if they got any ranged + ranged stun. Imagine mirana arrowing you there.

    I love playing pudge. I just need to be awake while playing him and I need a bit more practice with him. But he's just so fun to play.

    True, we could use some more "physical" spells like Hook. I think most those spells that involve moving people are also some of the most fun spells. And push stick.

    Edited:

    in my last 21 games (all random hero) I got carries 17 times.

    Fuck you random button.

    if huskar life breaks or you get hooked/swapped youre fucked, its not meant to be a hard escape, its perfectly fine for putting distance between you and the enemy in chases
    It's not all hard to get out of if you have a ghost scepter/ethereal blade and some sort of stun/disable. I went 10/0 in a game where Huskar was focusing me, and I didn't die as I had that item.

    Too bad if Huskar is assited by some nuker. Hell, I was laning as Pugna with Huskar once, Lifebreak on etheral target is the dunk man.

    enigma laning is bad

    he's super squishy and mana hungry, just woods with him
    Nah, sometimes I play him mid if no one wants to because his ecelon things make it so easy to last hit an deny. The person I was laning against always gets pissed when I am able to deny his creeps at half hp.

    my entire team had left, this was fun, prolonged it out to almost 50 (missing two items because I spent 12k in the last few minutes on 2 divines)


    can't carry em all :C

    I'm so new to drow I had no idea what to buy to make the most out of her, please help me here
    Oops I'm late here but:
    A good progression is wraith -> treads -> hotd -> manta/daedalus.
    HotD for lifesteal & stacking creeps. You need manta or daed to actually bridge you into late-game, because Drow's damage doesn't scale well early. After daed or manta you're virtually unstoppable as long as you don't do anything stupid/you're fed.
    Statistically your damage output from you & 2 illusions on manta is actually higher than daed, and manta is cheaper too. But you lose the ability to surpass that DPS when your illusions die/are on CD, so it's all personal preference.

    These days I usually go wraith -> treads -> lothars -> daedalus just because, if you can fit in lothars under 20 mins, you can probably do some pretty sweet ganking with it which can feed you in-between teamfights & farming. Plus pub teams don't think to buy gem early and other counter measures.

    I hate when people feed so hard early game (3 deaths on one person by 3 minutes? How the fuck is that even possible?) and then I have to try and gank the already somewhat fed lanes as whatever ganker hero I'm playing as during early-mid.

    People who complain about sniper not having enough mana to abuse shrapnel are funny. Sniper's int gain is fucking huge for an agi hero, not to mention you can get that aquil/whatever ring too.

    Still, manapool is enough for 1/2 shrapnels and Assasnite early (i.e. when mana regen is concern). Would you waste those 2 shrapnels for "harass/area denial" and not have team in following skirmish, or conserve them and use maybe 1 every while or so, to always have some mana regening.

    I'd use them both and kill the opposing hero(depends on what hero though), anyway, the sniper I played with didn't get the skill whole fucking game. WHOLE FUCKING GAME. That's 30% fucking aoe slow and 48dps. How can you trade that for stats

    I played a game earlier where we had a sniper and a sand king who just did fucking awful together. Sniper fed 3 kills in 3 minutes. Sand king gave first blood and another couple deaths early game. After the third death on sniper he just said "AFK Fuck this sand king." and afkd for 10 minutes. So me and the 2 others who didn't feed end up doing quite well and actually carry the game after a while. Level 5 sniper who has been in the fountain for about 15 minutes leaves the fountain and starts farming and acting like he was here the entire time and that he is the best player on our team. We still win and I report the sniper for being the dumb fuck that he is.

    Seriously what the fuck is going through their minds when they play?

    But to be honest, there are good guys. I ran once into a Russian guy, who did not only speak English, he also used his mic and was quite decent. So either totally or awesome.
