Item builds

Penetration build


If you are up against double support and or the mages are building breastplate I would recommend going penetration after Hydra's. I prefer to go flat pen (brawlers that is) before titan's but it does not matter that much. And depending on how far into the game it is I finish the build with Transendance if I will be able to farm the stacks and still have time to make use of the power (decoy 1 shots the wave). If the game is close to being over I just build DB for the quick power and hope for some lucky crits.

Critical hit chance build


If you are against one or zero supports and the enemy carries are going squishy builds going for crit after Hydra's just feels to damned good. Malice is best as your first crit item IMO due to price and damage after the DB nerf. To finish the build I normally go for brawlers or titan's (titan's if the enemy team built prot in the end) or Transendance if I have time to stack it.

Pros/Cons


Penetration build



    Pros:
  • Cheap
  • Early 100-0 kill potensial
  • Kills everyone


    Cons:
  • Less effective late game
  • Assassinate needed to 100-0 someone



Critical hit chance build


    Pros:
  • 100-0 potensial without Assassinate
  • Lategame damage
  • Assassinate for escaping


    Cons:
  • Expensive early
  • Countered by prot and Sanctuary

Gameplay

Just sitt back, relax and get your build online. Save Assassinate and poke down the enemy carries with your 1-3 combo. Don't be afraid to use Assassinate as an escape. As long as you have beads and Assassinate up feel free to go for some aggressive poke to set up for possible picks if your team follow up on your damage.


Later in the game you can go for some 100-0 kills on the enemy carries if they are alone or if you got beads/sprint ready. With the penetration build you can start picking off carries pretty early but be careful when using Assassinate. With the crit build you just keep using the 1-3 combo and if you get a crit +1-3 AAs depending on the crit rng you can 100-0 most of them. Save your Assassinate for that last 5 points if it is a close game.


Position yourself behind pillars, by the buffs etc. Invade buffs, stealth around the enemies forcing them to group up. And every time the enemy frontliner engages you 1-3 combo the enemy carry (preferably the mage) to keep them from being able to do anything in the teamfight.

Final thoughts

Be patient when you play, save Assassinate when you can, build against the enemy team, focus on the correct targets, don't be afraid to get into the enemy team to poke as long as you got Assassinate ready and always position yourself away from your team.
