Kardel Sharpeye is a testament to his name and race. Using only his finely honed skills of marksmanship and his trusty rifle, he systematically destroys his opponents from afar. Taking great care to aim for the most vulnerable of areas, he is capable of severely injuring an opponent, and with a little extra time, has been known to simply dispose of an enemy in a single shot. His rifle is equipped with a secondary barrel, capable of launching a short burst of shrapnel at close range, causing massive damage.

Want advice from a pro?

Take aim
Take aim


Treads agi
2 wraiths

Only pick snipe with a good tank in ur team and no blink strikers/windwalkers in opposite team.

1211 By Karl_Marx 2010-10-31

Build from the core onto the luxury item noob...!!!
Too expensive, play with AI hah dude????

1210 By Omega Dragrus X 2010-10-31

build is too expensive and is almost impossible to survive what with all the ganking.

1209 By Abdulink 2010-10-31

What about


1208 By dotawarlord 2010-10-30

@ 1207 diffusal doesnt have any special interaction with ranged illusion, they do not mana burn.

my build is usually
1 wraith

1207 By Cydonia 2010-10-30

@1204 Manta greatly increases your DPS if you haven't noticed. Especially if you make a diffusal.
@1205 Wraith is unneccessary. Euls delays your core items. MoM makes you way to paper, so dominator would be better.

1206 By pLoki 2010-10-30

@1203 actually, that wouldn't be worth it. Sniper has better items to farm than Aghanim (there's a topic on possibles Agha upgrades for Sniper on playDota).

I quite like Orchid on him: it gives him a nice silence with 20% added damages after 5 sec with a long cast range, 30 AS, and the needed mana & mana regen for Assassinate. Very effective and easily farmed on side shops. Can be used to Silence then flee too.

1205 By Abdulink 2010-10-28

Buriza/MKB(I recommend Buriza but if the enemy team has evasion type hereos then get MKB)
Late game Euls-Orchid

1204 By pLoki 2010-10-28

I like this build:

PT. 'nuff said.

Lothar for early survability, or Yasha then Manta. Use Manta ONLY for escaping, because the images can ministun but only the animation will be effective, and a real Sniper ministun will only lenghten the duration of the false ministun.

Butterfly is core imo: IAS, dmg, Evasion.

Lifesteal/Mjollnir (eventually with Skadi) are good. Deso can be considered against hard tanks.

Mkb. Great if TS is disabled.

Then a luxurie: Linken, HoT, Orchid, AC...

1203 By Greyinvoker 2010-10-21

I would love if sniper had an ulti upgrade, longer snipe range, stronger damage.. not that hard?

1202 By nooblet_pwner 2010-10-17

that would be good if you could farm like zsmj. getting HotD and manta is usually enough to deal some damage. i'd suggest bfly before EoS if you're doing well, but if you really need the stats get ult orbs first.

1201 By HunterKing 2010-10-17

@1200 yes, ur friends right
satanic idk since I never EVER use lifesteal stuff on anyone but naix. Boots can be subsituted for any, bfly is very good. I won a game with sniper 5 vs 5 with only phase boots and bfly. But then again, it was -om with all AI

1200 By murloc 2010-10-10

Is this item build good for sniper? Because its my friend's suggestion

Eye of Skadi

1199 By nooblet_pwner 2010-10-10

thats the perfect item build...

for fail...

1198 By natgino 2010-10-09


1197 By nooblet_pwner 2010-10-09

what is the point of posting a dream item build on every hero? you're accomplishing nothing.

why are you all getting lothars? for the terrible DPS? for the easily countered windwalk? for MS? compare to yasha
lothars: 3400
small amount of damage, 10 IAS, windwalk ability, ZERO late-game potential
yasha: 2200
small amount of AGI (damage+armor+IAS), 15 IAS, constant +10% MS, can be upgraded into manta.

if you want to play glass cannon sniper, you're gonna be carry. getting lothars doesnt cut it.

1196 By mariosk97 2010-10-09

i played today with:
power threads

and had 10/1/4

1195 By samirgal 2010-10-09



1194 By royalpain111 2010-10-09

1193 By silentzero 2010-10-09

Build lacks AS and almost no real HP boost
Basher's don't stack, meaning wasted gold
