Maybe the most tremendous being on the Scourge, Magnus is a power to be reckoned with. Trained from birth to become a potent warrior, he is now at the peak of his strength. The Magnataur's giant axe can cleave paths through his enemies, and create a bone-breaking shockwave that ripples through the ground. Further strengthened by a demonic magic that enhances his attacks, he can crush enemies with shocking ease. His greatest power, though, is the ability to create an immensely strong magnetic field, sucking in helpless foes to meet their end.

Ah I had a nice game ...

and i think dagger is not core anymore since Skewer ? Late Game with HoT, PT and BFury I sold Dagger for Satanic Money ... because skewer did it as well.

had 16-2-X Stats. Beyond. And even 2 Enemies at once couldn't stop me. =D

418 By Feuertanz 2011-10-24

Bottle, PT, Dagger, Bfury?

417 By The Guardian Angel 2011-07-31

Not Saying anyone can tank with items. But for the most part, Necrolyte will be laning for good levels and Items before he becomes sufficiently tanky to stay long enough in battle to spam heal. A true tank can absorb damage with Minimum items and Levels. Or else anyone who can farm two hearts can Instantly become Tanky. Which is Besides the point of becoming a tank anyway.

416 By The Guardian Angel 2011-07-31

Not all Str Heroes can tank. Not all Tanks are Str heroes. Ogre is a Decent Tank with massive Str growth. Treant too. Axe is a true tank cause he can Force enemies to attack. Medusa has a Shield but she needs Decent Farm and Levels to tank properly. But almost all the tanks can Deal a Good amount damage. Magnus is a Bad tank, Hes a team killer with cleave and Nukes but he sucks at tanking. As for necrolyte, he can tank with items and Can heal every 5 seconds. Thats why he can absorb some damage.

415 By mikzme3x 2011-07-30

medusa is a tank-carry hybrid if well playd and pr0perly dressed just lyk magna..wh0 sayz tanks d0nt damage? slardar d0es the same, s0 does naix..

414 By Bribe 2011-06-26

How about a hero that both deals good damage and tanks at the same time?
Huskar? Alch? Treant?
And dont say that treant doesnt, he has a fairly well nuke which heals everyone around, has good damage even without his core radiance and with just PT he can use that damage well. And Radiance Burn is also hell.

413 By slyfe 2011-04-28

so you're saying mortred is a tank... Aside from axe i can't think of any hero that can forcibly make enemy heroes attack them. since any dps hero, heavy nuker would be the main target, they're considered as tanks... even though their hp is half of that of a str hero.

412 By mawhpawh 2011-04-28

If X can make y,a,b,c and d attack X instead of d,e,f,g,h. Then x is a tank.
And here Necrolyte would be X.

411 By slyfe 2011-04-28

Then would you care to explain what a tank does. If you have played any mmo, rpgs tanks just take damage but that's usually against computers since they attack anything they see.

410 By mawhpawh 2011-04-28

Lol you don't know what tank is.

409 By slyfe 2011-04-27

damage or a hero that dies relatively fast but does a lot of damage.

408 By slyfe 2011-04-27

But that's the thing necro won't be tanking he would be spamming skills and doing damage ergo not a tank. A tank is a hero that goes in to battle and takes damage but deals very little damage himself. Again for axe he's an initiator once he blinks in and calls you wouldn't want to attack him since attacking him not only wastes time but hurts melee heroes thanks to his culling blade. Just think of it this way who would you rather kill someone who is freakishly hard to kill but deals miniscule

407 By BlackCommandoXI 2011-04-27

What about axe?

406 By mawhpawh 2011-04-27

I'd attack an Necrolyte with Radiance that spam heals 24/7. Necro can tank just fine.
Aka there are tanks in dota.

405 By slyfe 2011-04-27

cheaper price. The only roles in dota are support, disablers, harassers, gankers, initiators , dps types. Tanks have no role in this game since they actually won't be tanking anything aside from roshan and towers since no one would attack a centaur in team clashes, or a treant.

404 By slyfe 2011-04-27

will be attacking you after you blink in and stun that's why you get him radiance. Same for magnataur just making him tougher is a complete waste since he has a decent damage potential thanks to empower and he gets the gold/exp advantage against other heroes thanks to shockwave.

sure he takes more damage but he also lifesteals and if you're worrying about disablers then blink towards them or get a bkb. Also ptreads and MoM gives him way more attackspeed and benefit that one hyperstone and at a

403 By slyfe 2011-04-27

First of all there is no such thing as a tank in this game. It has been discussed a long time ago. Let's put it in scenarios for example a blinking str hero like centaur, magnataur, rexxar, leviathan you name it if you make them just a pure tank that is only usefull after they blink in and use their skills they're no longer a threat meaning enemies have no reason to attack you since you're basically useless it's like a centaur with a dagger,vanguard,heart,AC,blademail it's useless since no one

402 By ->F3lix<-/ 2011-04-27


Mom increases the damage taken, and as a tank, that's a bad thing...for attackspeed. treads and hyper will sufice


No dagger is fail

401 By slyfe 2011-04-27

MoM isn't mainly bought because of the lifesteal but because it gives the most attackspeed in the game, item wise. also that's not the best build since bloodstone is useless on him and dagger is way more useful and effective rather than having a force staff.

400 By qaz98 2011-04-27

best magnus item build

1. ptreads
