did u get the 1st skill and stats in this hero?

859 By ripguns21 2012-08-03

It usually comes down to personal preferrence. Some tend to get 2 levels of stats before Warcry, some tend to get 1, some tend to get none even, and try to max Warcry. Anyway, Sven's skill build is very versatile.

858 By Hyperion1O1 2012-08-03

Is that the usual Sven in Cm? My variation is that I get another point in stat before warcry if allies pack SoD or warcry 1st if I get some int boost(which is rare) or if I pack clarities.

857 By ripguns21 2012-08-03

1 point in stats before 1 level of warcry, then 3-4 points in stats after maxing stun, then max cleave, then stats for the rest of the game before maxing warcry at levels 23-25.

856 By Hyperion1O1 2012-08-03

I'm asking if you take some points in stats, which in this case is either 2 or 1, before taking a point in warcry.

Also, warcry cd is lowered per level so its pretty useful when maxed. Not to mention the armor bonus against potential physical DPS spells like Shadow Wave, Poison Touch, SLith Crush, etc.

855 By KNiteman 2012-08-03

1 level of Warcry is fine since only the armor increases per level and not the ms and anyway you do need the stats for spells but ArB help with mana issues. Arcane Boots, Dagger, Jango, BKB, Urn, TP.

854 By Hyperion1O1 2012-08-03

Do you take warcry after 2 points in stats or after 1 point in stat? This is maxed Bolt, ofc.

853 By neimi 2012-08-03

only ways to dodge storm bolt is by invi or immunity.

so no, the unit does not get damaged, nor stunned, nor revealed

When Storm Bolt is thrown/cast and it flies to a hero BUT that hero goes invis will the hammer still stun and damage him without revealing his location or ending his WW?

850 By DOTA-GOD 2012-04-27

847 By Hyperion1O1 2012-04-27

Is any argument needed in hopes of correcting his poor mindset?

846 By neimi 2012-04-27

841 By neimi 2011-12-21

AoM is a better rush. SnY is a mediocre item at best for sven.
blink is also a better rush. id also lose the butterfly.
