This is my first guide here on dotafire, so I decided to make a guide from one of my favorite heroes, Axe, I'll do a build that I started using after a while, I hope you all enjoy the guide, sorry for any grammatical errors, my english is a little rusty.
I start with Urn of Shadows recipe and 2x Gauntlets of Strenght and a Iron Branch
and i finish ASAP the Urn of Shadows, Why? Mana Regeneration, and that awersome activation witch will help us get a lot of kills combining with Battle Hunger will deal a lot of damage, but remember, always stay close to dying enemy heroes to collect charges for Urn of Shadows, and remember, you dont always need to use a charge of Urn of Shadows to do damage, you can also heal youself or a allied hero in case of need.
Important to say that at a certain point you can sell Urn of Shadows to start or finish you Extension or Luxury Items.
After you finished Urn of Shadows you will start immediately with Arcane Boots, the Replenish Mana will help you and your teammates a lot, you may ask, why not Soul Ring and Tranquil Boots? Axe is a very Fighter Hero, and when you use Tranquil Boots, it's healing stop, so you will use Soul Ring to trade 150 of Health to 150 of Mana, then you will spend 25 of mana to start to heal that 150 of health, it's a great strategy, but axe need to be in the middle of the battle, controling them and killing everyone, so no to Soul Ring and Tranquil Boots.
And of course, Vanguard you probably wanna to get hitted every time, by creeps and enemy hereos to activate Counter Helix, so it's a perfect combination Vanguard will provide you Health, Health Regeneration, and damage block! Perfect for Axe. You can sell it to make a second Heart of Tarrasque or have a slot for another Situational Item.
Aghanim's Scepter is a great choice to make, will make you Culling Blade get a extremely cooldown reduction, plus Health, Mana, plus +10 in all attributes.
After making Aghanim's Scepter you can start to build you Heart of Tarrasque buying Vitality Booster.
With Blink Dagger you can iniciate a team fight to secure your team a great advantage, use Berserker's Call to lock up the heroes and start to damaging all fo them with Counter Helix, kill low health enemy heroes with Culling Blade and get the others with Battle Hunger and Urn of Shadows. And if you dont want to make Dagger you can buy a Reaver to accelerate you Heart of Tarrasque
Heart of Tarrasque will incresses Axe's Health in a extremely scale, and will give him a badadd health regeneration after a fight, provide him a great durabilty.
Radiance will give more AoE damage, 45 of magical damage/second will both combine with Battle Hunger and Counter Helix.
Blade Mail Good against carriers, if that Phantom Assassin or Drow Ranger is giving you trouble, give trouble to them as well.
Black King Bar will give you damage and strenght, and will protect you agains disablers.
Pipe of Insight, Health Regeneration, magical damage reduction and when active gives you and closed allies a magical barrier than shield you guys up to 400 magical damage.
Shiva's Guard will give you armor and int, but the best think in it is the passive aura you have, reducing nearby enemy units attack speed can be helpfull, and when activated Shiva's Guard will release a wave that deals 200 of damage and slow their moviment speed by 40% 4s duration.
Be super hiper agressive, this is only way axe can be effective, when a wave comes and you eneme heroes are melee, be the first to get to this wave and kill all creeps with Counter Helix, you can use Berseker's Call to lock up the heroes too, damaging then, and you can secure kills with Battle Hunger + Urn of Shadows, it's very effective.
You will start to make your Vanguard, it will help you with health and health regeneration and damage block, witch will make you kill hundred's of creeps withouth even taking damage. And to tank heroes and creeps with Berseker's Call.
Aghanim's Scepter you make you more killer them ever, a 6seconds cooldown in you ultimate, and you can kill hero after hero in a matter of seconds, securing gold to make more expensive and better itens.
Blink Dagger will help you to iniciate all team fight's and chase enemy heroes.
If you succeed you can finish the game with 2xHeart of Tarrask you can change your Arcane Boots to Boots of Travel, Aghanim's Scepter, Blink Dagger and 2 Situational Items depending on the enemy heroes, remember that if your enemy team is winning, get one situational item to help you and your team to counter them and get the game back to your hands.
Hope you all Enjoy the guide, any doubt's please reply, but with education, thank you all who read the guide!
