what about eternal blade?butterfly and bruiza? and pls tell me other lux items thnx

588 By nooblet_pwner 2010-07-26

listen to yourself. why cant you just admit your mistake? you said clearly:
"Viper has the most "expensive" manacost of all orbwalkers (20 mana per poison atk, Frost arrows cost 12 and searing arrows 8)"
i dont see the word AGILITY in there, do you?
plus, why do you say he cant orbwalk? are you saying silencer cannot orbwalk either? you seem to be quite confident saying nonsense

587 By kiminmaster 2010-07-26

Surprise butt secks and to escape...u can choose between lothar and dagger...lothar is pretty popular on pubs and from my view, they just use it for teh lulz....

586 By Noo=b 2010-07-25

hehe thanks!but could you explain the dagger please?i mean with so many slowing skills why dagger? oh and why does this hero hardly use lothar cause i have never seen that item on him.

585 By kiminmaster 2010-07-24

Heart as luxury...i dont buy any dps item thanks to nethertoxin....

584 By kiminmaster 2010-07-24

2 wraith/bracer
build up vanguard
i max up PA coz this is ur core skill to get a kill..u can choose to max nether or'll max nether asap after that coz i usually have dagger by n0w and start killing people and nether helps very much...

583 By Noo=b 2010-07-24

please tell me a skill and item build thanks and not a retarded one

582 By AngelofKaos 2010-07-23


Do you consider Harbringer an orbwalker? Based on his orb dealing more damage as more mana he has?

Don't you see I pointed all AGILITY heroes?

581 By nooblet_pwner 2010-07-23

@578 false, arcane orb 100 manacost

580 By nooblet_pwner 2010-07-22

orchid is a questionable item, but ive seen yamateh use it. i'd say hes my favorite player, hes one of the few exceptionally good players who are willing to experiment with crazy builds in professional play (blink dagger when theres spec+radiance lolz)

579 By Nabla 2010-07-21

my sentence was meant like this:

it can ensure to kill disabler and stuner enemies, like lion rhasta etc
in combo with slow it works like a long guinsoos against them, total disable 1on1
and! improves your ias, your dmg and improves total dmg by 20% also from poison and ulti
so wtf theres no better item to get!

578 By AngelofKaos 2010-07-21

I don't see how Orchid would stun, but...

Yeah, it helps you disable, gives INT and the best mana regen of all items, raw dmg, 30% IAS...considering Viper has the most "expensive" manacost of all orbwalkers (20 mana per poison atk, Frost arrows cost 12 and searing arrows 8) seems a nice item to have.

577 By Nabla 2010-07-19

i like orchid on viper
since it can also ensure to kill disable/stun heroes

576 By AngelofKaos 2010-07-19

Question: Is Orchid a viable item for his mana regen, and possibility to spam his orb poison, or should I stick with Perseverance / Bottle ?

575 By shawnkira 2010-07-17

erm guys wat is orb walking?

574 By undutchable 2010-07-08

@573 Sure man. It perfectly works.

I go etheral just for Viper and Luna. Result is excellent. Also Viper's ulti and etheral has a very fast cooldown. You can use it in every 30 sec

573 By AngelofKaos 2010-07-08


Unholy dickshitting nipples, did you try out that on game or are you just speculating?

572 By undutchable 2010-07-08

Viper Strike + Etheral = gg

First use ulti then etheral. See what happens:
DAMAGE: 145 + 145x1.4 + 145x1.4 + 145x1.4 + 145 + 120x2.5 = 1200 damage
SPEED REDUCTION: 80% + 30% = minimum speed

So, ulti takes 5 times 145 but with etheral 3 of them will be more and also you cast 2.5 times your agility as damage. (I assumed you have 80 agility yourself +40 from etheral)

571 By undutchable 2010-07-08

Whom to use? I use it in combat to low hp but high damage heroes such as mortred or nevermore. So they cant hit and mostly die.
How to use? Cast the spells then go behind your enemy during etheral process and after etheral, hit with slow. gg.

I dont even mention that your friends can cast spells on him as well with 40% more damage !!!

570 By venoviper 2010-07-05

@568 youre right but i spam 1st skill every time i see my food. because when he gets half or less hp he's dead. thanks to nethertoxin. i love orb walking!!!
