Does anyone else use this?
Lately its been having some issues with Twitch and reinstalling does nothing. The other Dota 2 stream extension kinda sucks so I'd rather fix this one
I'm a bit late, but, goddamn Dirge is absolutely awesome.
Spamming zombies and stealing strength and killing people with a clap. The way he moans scares me almost as much as Siren's voice though. In a good way.
Phase + MoM, while dangerous, can make you hell of a glass cannon early game. If you are playign against a team with minimal stuns, this will allow you to dominate. On the other hand, the safer, more practical build is Treads and Yasha -> Manta. (Maybe with a Aquila if you want to spam Assassinate as harass)
Then, build whatever damage items you feel like. A Daedalus is a great choice, a sit is on every carry that doesn't have a built in crit or rely on non-physical damage. Desolator has great synergy with Manta if you decide to go that road. Butterfly and Mjolnir are also universally good items on Sniper.
Various endgame builds you can do for sniper-
Treads, Aquilla, Manta, Mjolnir/Butterfly/Desolator/Daedalus, BKB/MKB if needed, TP Scrolls
Phase, MoM, Mjolnir+Butterfly/Desolator+Daedalus, BKB/MKB if needed, TP scrolls
You get the idea. Just don't build Mjolnir AND Daedalus, because Arc Lightning can't crit.
I always go desolator and daedalus after treads and/or aquila on sniper, fuck shadowblade
I grab two Wraith Bands
Then I build one Aquila, not for Assassinate, but for his most underrated skills, Shrapnel.
Then Treads, Yasha, Demon Edge, Helm of the Dominator, grab a Wolf or Centaur for the increased attack speed, don't forget the stun!
Finish up Manta then Monkey King Bar. By now, you should destroy. If not, grab Daedalus.
If you're doing exceptionally well it might be worth grabbing Midas. Attack Speed and gold, what more can you ask for on Sniper?
If the enemy have lots of nukes, grab a BKB after Yasha.
As for skills, Shrapnel and Take Aim alternatively with Assassinate when you can.
You'll generally do more damage shooting than Assassinating, so only do so if he's about to escape!
Sniper's not great at farming stacked ancients.
I find I can reliably get first blood like 90% of the time I play Sniper. As soon as I get my ult, I can kill them. I've usually counter-harassed the other guy down with my range to the point where they've either burned all their healing items or are about to use them and are juuuuuust low enough to die.
Oddly enough, playing mostly support the entire time I've played Dota 2 has made positioning a breeze.
People were building four scepters just because it saved item slots. He didn't even have an aghs upgrade back then.
So are we getting a patch today? I know no heroes, but bugfixes?
Hero names are damn cool, titles/shorts are far easier to remember/use in-game but Ish'kafel, Zharvakko, Karroch, these names are fun to say.
Guys, anyone knows what was the Socialize tab gonna be for?
Huh I'd prefer it to be a link to a forum with tips and talk about the game and such...
