STRAT: We all know that Weaver has a low hp so my main strategy for the Weaver is try to max out his attack speed and attack damage. That's why at the start of the game i usually go for the most Wraith Bands i can form. For my strategy, 4 WB's will suit me well for farming and hero killing. It may sound time consuming, insane or not advisable but it works for me.
Weaver is an easy prey because of his low HP. if in doubt, you can always add some HP uppers.
Denying is my game and it is the only way to win in a lose-lose situation. Try to deny as many ally creep as you can and try to get the last hit from an enemy creep. Also, try doing cheap shots specially when you are facing melee heroes. If facing ranged heroes, try using shukuchi as cheap shots. Farming through neutral creeps will help you in later games.
When trying to go for hero killing, make sure you have a full HP or at least a decent one that you think you can beat your opponent. Usually Weaver is a kill-stealler or should i say, more of a team player. He cannot face heroes all by himself. He usually needs his allies.
TIPS/TRICKS: attack-sukuchi-attack-sukuchi-attack... when in doubt or HP turns orange, use timelapse... then attack again... or sukuchi for making the get-away.
By this time you should be farming for a Monkey King Bar.
