ok then lets get started. clinks is really good. if you can play him. if you cant play him. play someone else. i do believe this is a general rule for all heros. but playing just about an hour ago me and my friend (no name) were playing with noobs. no name played as lifestealer and i havent had many combinations with clinks but this one workedlike a charm.
when you are clinks maxing out your searing arrows and skeleton walk fast. the reason y lifestealer is a good partner is because once you start leveling your searing arrows and stealer levels his open wounds what you do is atuo your searing arrows and who ever that here is he is dead. that great thing about that combination of attacks is that it can work at any stage of the game, quick thing later game lifestealer can infest in you while you are invisible you go near a hero and reak havock.
now breifly you want your skeleton walk maxed out asap after your searing arrows and you want your strafe when ganking and destroying towers becomes important because with searing arrows on atuo and strafe in a gank no one will survive and a tower can be taken out in a second (preferably with minnions around).
as long as your death pact is concerned it is irrelevent because you need all you mana for your other moves and when your coming out of a gank if you still have enough mana to spend you havent played the gank well enough.
in terms of items you want 4 things power treads purely because they are passive and anything else will end your skeleton walk. after imediatly save for a MKB because the damage is insane. after get a daedalus and if the game looks like it will take a long time after you get thing you may as well save for a divine reaper only because with that you can rape anyone anytime. apart from this you should be consistantly buying clarities either for yourself or others.
this guy can be pro. dont play him stupid
see you next time.
