Little is known to the Shadowtooth Clan, likely because this group of shadowy trolls never unveil the secrets of their mystifying sacrament. Nevertheless, the Loa they worship is much more powerful than most elementals, thus their favors must be kept in confidentiality. In return, these Primal Gods granted these trolls the power over paralyzing toxins, life-bending voodoo, and even endowment of life beyond the grave. A living eternity of death and misery, Dazzle now marches within the ranks of the undead, announcing the apocalypse of the Scourge that may lead them to much anticipated ascendancy.

My Skill build:
17-25- heal
Item build is:
Force Staff
6th is any item I want or need

A fun, easy maneuver: Carry a teleport scroll (or invest in BoT) and make sure you have at least 1 level of grave. If you find yourself in a gank, wait until they use up their stuns, disables, w/e. When you're low on health (which will happen fast) use grave and teleport to fountain. All-chat "trololo" for maximum effect.

424 By Hyperion1O1 2011-12-06

Veil of discord does not benefit him directly unless his team is magic heavy. Veil decreases magic resistance and dazzle deals a ton of physical damage not magical damage.

423 By salagubang 2011-08-09

what is the purpose of the veil of discord for him...

please teach me how..
and what is the effect of that item...

thank you..!!

422 By nooblet_pwner 2011-05-29

Are you directing your comment towards me? I sure hope not. If it is, I suggest you re-read my paragraph and ask yourself "Does getting aghanims mean carry?"
Getting aghanims isn't exactly my definition of being a carry. Neither is having just "a couple items". He's still a support, but he has the ability to outlane opponents, and getting items on him isn't bad at all.
I already talked about aghanims. Previous people mentioned mekansm. I really doubt he lacks health with those items, probably with treads on top of that too.
His role is a caster/support. His spells have fairly low cooldowns, you'll be able to use them 1-3 times every fight, and that can add up. They're very strong skills, so you need to stay alive and cast them.
"flat out disable" is the counter to everything. Don't need a mod to tell us that. Besides, if the enemy is whacking on your dazzle, you're obviously going to be whacking back at them, not just standing there. Even if dazzle dies, as long as he pulls off his ultimate, it's going to be a tough fight for the enemy. The AOE is huge, so it's pretty hard to miss. He's sorta like lich: get a couple items like mek and agha, pull off your ulti, and try to stay alive. Their other skills do quite a bit, but the ulti is the most important skill.

421 By lolopo 2011-05-27

dazzle should not be played as a carry(except for teh lulz/or when there's nobody who can deal better dps than you do)...
hmmm, he's like a VS, who has DPS enhancing skills but she herself does not possess high inert dps...
though dazzle has a nice animation, he must focus on buying survivability items and support items such as meka/necro since he's still useful after releasing his skills(his heal and grave is gamebreaking)
allies are dps'ers and enemies are heavy aoe nukers

420 By Mahyar 2011-05-27

can any one say which are his great allies and most dangerous enemies?
Ive seen him having a good team with furion/brood mother with his heal but dont know any more.

419 By Sumanchandra 2011-05-26

I think the guide is too old. So can anybody say the list of items for him?

418 By bobbob247 2011-05-26

The problem is that dazzle can't do anything with his items. He makes a very sub par carry, as his heal isn't very strong versus ranged units, and as long as the other team can just flat out disable dazzle, he will die because he lacks health. Just stop dazzle from graving late in his life and he just wins.

417 By nooblet_pwner 2011-05-26

If you're a solo mid dazzle, you're gonna get a couple items. He has nice base damage, lots of mana, and an EPIC animation. You can easily outlane many heroes. Also, if you happen to have next to no lag, it's possible to deny enemy hero many creeps using your Shadow Wave.
-Aghanims is a great item for him. Gives him much needed HP and mana, as well as +6 seconds to your ultimate. In a teamfight or when pushing, that's 6 more seconds your enemy won't engage you. It would be suicide to fight with +/- 10 armor already, 20 is ridiculous. 30 only lasts for 1 second so we won't count that. If you're pushing, that's basically buying your team 6 more seconds on the tower. I really doubt enemies will engage with an armor difference of +/- 15. That's just suicide.

416 By Sumanchandra 2011-05-26

@414 lol i never said they are bad. I mean to say shiva's is a good item in ganks and its better to use the money on other regen items than going for agha. @415 i think u got my point. Anyway thank u for the info :) i started playing him recently and i saw somebody saying assault, and necro-book for him. Are they good on him? I need a guide, plz help.

415 By lolopo 2011-05-26

haha lol...

dont get agha let your carry farm...
rush urn/healing item like meka...

or maybe an early MoC ...
If yha know what yah doin
your build not contain items worth more than 3k...
support items works best on him,
MoC, Urn, Meka, AoB...
after completing these four the game is already near/halfway finished... and the rest of the game you should be near to whomever needs your support...

414 By neimi 2011-05-26

aghanims also doesnt seem effective on doom, lion, lina, jakiro, zeus, windrunner, necro, bara, veno, invoker, etc...
i mean it only improves their ulti.
nothing else...

and if you meant that shiva is a bad item there is another facepalm...

413 By Sumanchandra 2011-05-26

How does shiva's guard stacks on him? It has an int gain with additional armour and a good amount of aoe slow. Also aghanim scepter doesn't looks effective other than improving ulti.

412 By sewingmachine 2011-04-27

will purge remove the buff from weave?

411 By camelface 2011-04-27

you would get urn AND mekansm? yeah that doesn't sound too shabby.

I also really appreciate boots of travel with this guy. I get Phase Boots but always end up defending for my idiot team. BoT would be nice to join the team wherever they are.

I tried bloodstone, the HP and mana boost is great, but I am not convinced about this item. What other ways are there for dazzle to gain some life? replace bloodstone with vanguard and have money for euls?

410 By mawhpawh 2011-04-26

Lol EM, go play AP.

Good enough Items. But I'd recommend an Urn too.

409 By camelface 2011-04-26

Hi guys, since the guide is old, and posting less frequent than game updates, just wanted to confirm on good item builds.

In APEM, good to start with soul ring recipe + sobi mask. Finish soul ring in side shop, or even start with only the recipe + branches (later used in mek).

With a few low stats items, we can start making mek. After this, I do not think void stone is of any use considering soul ring.

I was thinking Euls (cheap disable) and bloodstone. 400hp heal at death is insane.


408 By IceCold 2011-03-30
