Born as the heir to the satyr dominion, Rikimaru was trained by the mightiest warriors of his race. However, the power of the Burning Legion managed to corrupt many of his kind, leaving them as mindless beasts in the forest. Vowing revenge against the Scourge, he sharpened his skills for battle. Using his small size to his advantage, he can render himself invisible, enabling him to stab his enemies in the back. And by using thick smoke as cover he becomes nearly untouchable.

Not really. If you can't kill with autoattacks, kill with burst :>

Try Urn Dagon Ethereal. Just had a divine courage game with this build and raped!

1295 By Ghost 2012-12-20

All the truth there hype.

why not just go with CF[X]'s guide?
he generally knows what he is talking about :D

1294 By lolopo 2012-11-26

well said 1293

1293 By Hyperion1O1 2012-11-25

Well, diff already gives triple the amount of damage on Riki (20 on feedback, 20 on backstab, 20 on agility for a total of 60 damage=relic) so there's the basher is better core than diff.

Not arguing for basher sucks but basher sucks on being gotten 1st. Also, diffusal is sexy.

1292 By CyberXDragon 2012-11-25

I still find diffusal useful...(if anybody really cares)

1291 By lolopo 2012-11-23

sentry is a counter (mainly for defensive purposes) for slark as well as for any other invisible heroes (except blink dagger lanaya)
permabash build is not necessarily lame but not good also its a pub item and most of the time equipped by children (unless there is a good reason to do so)

1290 By RangedHeroProb 2012-11-23

You know what, I never said AB is a core item. I said its a good alternative build. U all flame MoM+AB or MoM+Bash build. If u don't like it then fine. What I hate is when someone say AB sucks or fail or etc.

O rly? Of course its funny. Haha. Especially when u didn't see at someone first post, oops, point. and easily say: "it's funny cause people keep on going for the super omgwtf bash build"

Then dont post yet until u r in good mood. forget about slark, this is riki's stuff

1289 By neimi 2012-09-19

i wasnt in the mood back then. having failed advanced managerial math, gf between life and death, etc....

you also werent taking anything into consideration. saying that a sentry isnt a counter for slark....
while not supporting your comment.

1288 By captain_tesca 2012-09-16

it's funny cause people keep on going for the super omgwtf bash build, forgetting that it wont help you when you're disabled to death.

1287 By lolopo 2012-09-16

@Kniteman, that is in a situation where everybody has decent skills not just in Garena...
AB doesn't provide much DPS and survival that Bfly-diff-manta provides... it just just you permastun which is good only if your allies don't know how to stun or when your enemies do not stick together...

1286 By captain_tesca 2012-09-16

AB or EB?

none of the above.

Stick to the diffusal + manta core.
or get him something with higher survivability potential

1285 By KNiteman 2012-09-15

Wisp with any hero that has a disable is imba, though I like him with CK or DK because that is an assured kill. AB on Riki is still a fail. I prefer synergy over damage and disable like Manta gives a good balance of mobility, survival, DPS, projectile dodge.

1284 By Hyperion1O1 2012-09-15

That said, ending the game at mid to early late stages is a priority. If you can't end it, at least gain a 1 to 2 rax advantage.

1283 By lolopo 2012-09-15

@1282 so definitely its NOT REQUIRED...
Manta and diff can go a long long way...
but some pro players also go for SnY and MoM... and its effective with wisp...

1282 By Hyperion1O1 2012-09-15

Neimi's post is old. Cut him some slack since he was dealing with the troll.

Also, AB is one of the best LUXURY item for riki.

1281 By RangedHeroProb 2012-09-15

Yeah, AB is one of the best item for riki. No doubt about that!

AB is more like hybrid version between Hex and MKB. That's what I was trying to say.

Since you only ask between 2 items, ABYSSAL FTW!

And your attitude seems like you're the smartest person ever in this web.

What's that? 1v1 situation?

1280 By lolopo 2012-09-15

but remember that bkb cancels out your perma invi when activated...

1279 By lolopo 2012-09-15

@1278 yesss and its very very effective
i think AB deserves some love since i got owned by AB riki... EB is useless for him its only practical use is to disable dpsers and to rpevent you from getting owned by dpsers but AB is a better disable for him... blink + AB solves the problem of getting inside a clash but once you're in its hard to retreat
many pub players do not get diff but you must get it when there is a GS...
BKB is good esp when there is a necro 3 on your enemy tea or multiple he
