Bear with me people, this is my first every strategy that im posting. IMO, Sven is one of the greatest creep killers AND the greatest hero killers (One Vs. One) that DOTA has to offer. He is also one of the greatest tanks in the game, with a MINIMUM armour bonus of 8. His damage is extraordinary, and can reach 500+ within late game, no divine rapier. Read on and please comment, because it will help me with further strategies. Thanks Everyone...

Sven - The Rogueknight

Range: | Move Speed: 295
Primary: STR
Str: 23 + 2.7 | Agi: 21 + 2.0 | Int: 14 + 1.3
Damage: 54 56 | HP: 587 | Mana: 182
HP Regen: 0.94 | Mana Regen: 0.57
Attack Speed: 0.71 | Armor: 2
Storm Bolt
Storm Bolt (T)
Targets an area around an enemy unit and releases a magical hammer dealing damage and stunning enemy units. 250 AOE
Level 1 - Deals 100 damage and stuns
Level 2 - Deals 175 damage and stuns
Level 3 - Deals 250 damage and stuns
Level 4 - Deals 325 damage and stuns
The AoE targeting reticle must be centered over an enemy unit.
The projectile can't be dodged by blinking or moving away.
Mana Cost: 140
Cooldown: 15
Comment: This is a very useful and crazy skill when coming to killing and stopping runaway heroes. Two seconds is all you need, when one on one with another. On the plus side, it also has a cool 250 damage which is useful anyhwere between midgame to early.

Great Cleave
Great Cleave (C)
Sven strikes with such force that all nearby enemies take damage. 200 AOE splash
Level 1 - 20% damage is splashed.
Level 2 - 30% damage is splashed.
Level 3 - 40% damage is splashed.
Level 4 - 50% damage is splashed.
Mana Cost: N/A
Cooldown: N/A
Comment: IMO, not such a useful skill. ALTHOUGH if added with Battelfury (Which is optional) it can become quite deadly to each and every wave of creep that hits you but not heroes. Why? Because Sven is only a one on one hero killer.
Warcry (W)
With the righteous anger of one wielding Justice, Sven lets loose a mighty Warcry, heartening his allies for battle. Sven and nearby allies gain movespeed and increased armor.
Level 1 - Gives +3 armor and 12% movespeed.
Level 2 - Gives +6 armor and 12% movespeed.
Level 3 - Gives +9 armor and 12% movespeed.
Level 4 - Gives +12 armor and 12% movespeed.
Fully stacks with other armor-giving auras from items.
Fully stacks with other abilities and items that give a bonus to movement speed.
Area of Effect: 700
Duration: 6 seconds
Mana Cost: 25
Cooldown: 36/30/24/18 seconds
Comment: Nice. Simply nice. This skill and one or two other items help Sven tank the nukings from other heroes and take a lot of damage from towers in early game. It also helps your creeps and your team-mates
God`s Strength
God`s Strength (R)
Sven gets pumped up! Adds bonus damage for 25 seconds.
Level 1 - Adds 100% damage.
Level 2 - Adds 125% damage.
Level 3 - Adds 150% damage.
Only increases base damage and that given by the primary attribute of Sven. Raw bonus damage is not increased.
Can only be removed by Purge (from Diffusal, Stone Gaze, Unstable Current or the Satyr Trickster)
Mana Cost: 100 /150/ 200
Cooldown: 80 seconds
Comment: This skill need not words to describe. Almost anyone will runaway from you if this skill is on, and is seriously deadly when its combined with a 75% cleave, chomps through creeps and kills heroes (under certain conditions) within less than ten hits. One of the greatest ulti's in DOTA

Skill Build

Early Game:

 View Details for Ring of Basilius

Sven excels at early game. With damage and armour to boot, farming for gold and exp will be easy for you, especially if you last-hit the creeps. Its best to farm with only one team mate, but if you are by your self, you can use Storm Bolt to run, if necessary. Be careful, Sven is slow and can be harassed very easily. Look at your map at all times, when you see an enemy(ies) coming for you, stay adamant with team mates or run away. There is no shame.

View Details for Boots of SpeedView Details for Ring of Regeneration

Once you hit level 6, make sure you begin your hero hunting skills. If you see one hero all by itself, kill them. You should, at this level have at least +5 armour rating, so damage spells won't be too hard for you. If they runaway, use storm bolt and quickly take them out with damage from God's Strength. Remember, either one on one or with team mates. Otherwise you will get owned...

For Sven, IMO, Mid-Game begins around level 9...
