Dragon Knight - Classic Build

A Classic Build to Dragon Knight

This very classic and safe build to DK will give you an early punch while keeping you durable and solid for the first teamfights. After many games with DK, I found this to be the best compromise between early harassment and security. I also think that the items i've picked synergizes quite well. The early levels are more oriented for aggressive players, but you can easily modify this to your convenience by maxing out other abilities at first.

Don't hesitate to criticize, rate and comment.

I guess it could be interesting as a luxury item, otherwise don't rush it.
Thanks everyone for your comments and votes :)

Always get Dragon Tail at level 1. It's meaningless to get Breathe Fire, it's simple math: you'll deal 90 Magic Damage (67.5 to Heroes, even worse) and on top of that, spending 100 mana, which is half of what you start with. Definitely not worth it. Getting the stun will 1) save you from first blood attempts in a 2v3 or 1v3 early gank 2) get a guarantee first blood in a 3v2 and sometimes in a 2v2 if your mate have a nice stun like Vengeful Spirit.

Not to say it's the biggest level 1 stun in the game (2.5 seconds, this is a steal, making DK that much powerful and feared right after he step out of the Fountain).

Item build is fine, except for Vanguard. He doesn't need it. With that much gold you could get better items, like half way through BKB (Ogre Axe alone will give you 190 HP for 1k gold).

Just my 2 cents though... not saying your build doesn't work!

Cheers!

Getting dragon tail first is the best
Its almost a guaranteed kill lvl 1 if you have a good disable on your teammate (Venomancer,Sven,Lina,Crystal Maiden,Vengeful Spirit)
