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
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.
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
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.
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
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

Crystalis + Demon Edge + Buriza-do Kyanon Recipe Scroll
Eventhough this contradicts Cranium Basher, its fun to see sparks fly. Within LateGame, you can deal over 800 damage (With a bit of luck ofcourse...)
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.
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...
