Mana Cost: 80/100/120/140
Cooldown: 20/16/12/8 Seconds
Comment: A good skill on heroes such as veno but with this hero I usually only use it as a slow since it has the same slow at all levels, I rather take stats so that I can have more mana to cast my spells which have a high mana cost.

Mana Cost: 60
Cooldown: 12/10/8/6 seconds
Comment: The golden skill which has great synergy with your third skill and also means that you decide when the battle starts and ends. However becasue of this skill you may be hard to kill, therefore in team battles you may be the focus of disables to prevent you from blinking but we will discuss that after.

Comment: Your mighty ulti that also has a mighty mana cost. At first look this spell may not seem that usefull because of its low damage especially when compared with laguna blade and finger of death but this skill gives the user double and triple kills because unlike those 2 skills I named above it has an area effect.

REASONS FOR SKILL BUILD-
The reason for maxing out scream is easy since its your primary nuke and your most used spell alongside blink and since its stronger in early game when most heroes are 'soft' its better to max it early. Shadow strike is used as a slow in this guide rather than a damage over time spell, this skill is not really used by me on this hero as I use it on Veno, its purpose IMO is to slow a running hero so that I or my team can kill him. Another reason why I dont take Shadow strike to early is because its a blink+Scream+stats is a little better since these are what you mainly need for this hero.
REASONS FOR ITEM BUILD-
After playing with this hero on many occasions and also seeing this hero in many games (mainly pro games) I have noticed that there are two items which are mainly obtained: Limken's Sphere and Eye of Skadi. There are other items but these are the two that stand out, but now you are faced with another problem, which to get first. In the beginning I used to rush skadi first and begin owning but then I realized that this hero is subdivided into different aspects according to the point of the game.
Early game- Weak hero that needs as much last hits as possible
Mid game - A caster based ganking hero as other intel heroes
Late Game - A DPS hero with nukes
Therefore I have decided to choose linken's sphere first because it will help at the point at which I my get it, mid game which is when Akasha is a caster hero at best then the skadi at late game so that I get a larger hp and mana pool and resort to continue picking of foolish heroes that think they can stop the Queen of Pain.
Bracers are choosen because this hero has low hp at the start of the game, it sometimes doesnt matter if you get power treads or BoT but I chose BoT because when you get it in mid game you can easily teleport around the map ganking heroes and farming so that you get your skadi faster.
At this point int the game you have a really weak intel hero that must get as much last hits as possible, so our starting items could be a chicken(unless your team already has one), some iron woods and tangoes/flasks. Last hitting with this hero isnt that hard because she has a good attack animation but on the other hand she has low attack so time your last hits carefully and deny when available.
Try not to be too aggressive because this may cause you your life and the key to early game is surviving, so pay attention to the enemy heroes mana pool and look out for any warnings your team might give you about missing heroes. Dont be afraid to blink when necessary( blink descriptions come later on). However if you see a perfect opportunity for a kill especially if you are in a lane with a soloing hero. E.G-
Sit back and farm up your bracers and perseverance, if you are playing a little aggressive with your spells then you should get your perseverance first but if your playing defensively and focusing on last hits the get you bracers first for the extra stats. However always remember that the key to early game is survival so always look out for missing heroes because heroes like PoTM and Balanar love to get kills early on because a 5 second stun and a fast beast is a scary thing for an intel hero who's hp hasnt crossed 1000.
There are a few things to escaping ganks-
Mao awareness my your whole team and the placement of observer wards especially in the water and in the forested areas next to the lane you are in, but dont go spending all your money on wards so let your team take up some of the cost of the wards.
Also you have a blink so with all of those above things in play it would be hard to die.
Blink has a range of about a 1000 but if you click to blink further than 1000 range you will only blink 800 range in the direction.
You should aim to get these items by the end of early game-
