Forcibly raised from the dead by the Lich King to serve as his elite magical guard, the Lich has the burning cold of Northrend in his realm of control.

No they wont because it bounces and you need more than 1 unit for that.

378 By xxkidrauhlxx 2012-05-09

If there is only one unit in the Chain Frost's AoE,does the unit take 3850 damage ??

lich is a support hero first and foremost, and he should babysit, let the carry get the gold and kills, and be roaming + ganking often.

and in team battles, your basic job is to throw frost armor on everyone, use Chain Frost, Frost Nova, Mekansm, then repeat if you happen to be still alive.

getting even aghanims on him is a stretch in most games.

final build might be something along the likes of: Boots + Mekansm + Wards + unfinished parts of something else

375 By silentzero 2011-12-18

he did mention Boots of Travel -___-
Deso is a 5k waste of money, with that amount of gold that a carry could have farmed for, or better spent on warding.
Orchid is meh, AS and Damage is wasted, expensive as hell too. GJ stealing gold from the carry.

On another note, have fun farming with Lich in the early game, you could've babysitted your carry which could've led you to have a better chance on winning the game.

seriously, there are a lot of troll builds, at least make it one.

374 By EIOX 2011-12-18

shivas guard

start with RoB
then boots
rush to mithril hammer
then complete stygian
ur farming become fast
then farm n gank for all remaining items

373 By EIOX 2011-12-18

@372 some boots.....??? LMAO

372 By O-ren 2011-12-18

i do it with
some tangos or a salve
and headdress
then imma go direct to mekansm, or during the process, buy some boots.
and more optional items like guinsoo, or ethereal blade.

371 By EIOX 2011-11-23

i m not forcing anybody to do wht i wish..dude this should be self understood thing.....

370 By carnage07 2011-11-23

ElOX not everyone has to conform to what you wish. He isn't doing anything against the rules.

369 By EIOX 2011-11-23

sorry cant get u?

368 By Feuertanz 2011-11-23

okay, than it was a normal dota game. Build works if you can handle it. -O

367 By EIOX 2011-11-23

got it

366 By Feuertanz 2011-11-23

@364 ofc it's not a build for every game ... i just tried refresher build for the first time. before i played him always with shiva,skadi,mekansm. (not that order)

but it was a very effective build. all heroes around only supported me since mid-game, because I outfarmed the enemies with every gank ... ^^ was maybe a bit of luck in the game. but i will try it more the next time.

365 By Feuertanz 2011-11-23

also: dota discussion = dota2 discussion. i don't think that anyone will care for that.

364 By neimi 2011-11-23

actually its a rather bad build in a high level game.

getting that much items means ur taking ur carries gold. and getting these items over items such as meka or pipe or wards is a bad idea IMO. since u are the support afterall

363 By Feuertanz 2011-11-23

dota 2 is exactly the same except for the gfx ... same heroes, same skills, same items. so stfu @361 if you dunno what's going on.

this build will also be effective in dota. 0o you just have to roam and gank and look out, when you pick, that there are no enemies like riki, clinkz, akasha, w/e.

362 By neimi 2011-11-23

excuse me mr admin. but he didnt do anything wrong.
dota 2 is just like dota.

361 By EIOX 2011-11-23


360 By Feuertanz 2011-11-23

if you have enemy heroes that can't flee from your ulti through windwalk or blink ... try the following. :D Built that at dota2 yesterday. 19:1 stats,

Boots of Speed (after Refresher -> BoT)

Double Ulti ftw.
