Gondar: The Bounty Hunter

Gondar, The Bounty Hunter

Gondar is a Draenei that is often called upon for his superior skills. Not much is known about his past, but his capabilities are extraordinary. Some believe he learned from a ninja clan while others say he was born with his amazing abilities. He is able to throw shurikens with extreme accuracy and has the strength to strike down any foe with his two swift blades. His agility is matched by none, and his stealth is inferior only to few. He is interested in the conflict for money alone, and is promised a large reward.

Gameplay

Early Game / Laning Phase (LVL 1-6)
Buy your starter items, go in a lane (preferably the longer lane; bottom for Sentinel, top for Scourge). Hopefully you went into the lane with a competent ranged partner, a baby sitter would be icing on top of the cake but is really not necessary. Your main objective is very simple, last hit and deny as much as possible and don't push the creep line to far, if that happens go pull some creeps (you went to long lane right?). Hopefully by the end of the laning phase you were able to complete your Threads/Phase Boots and started working on your Deso.

Laning with a Ranged Hero

Laning against 2 Meele Hero:
This is the best possible scenario for your laning phase, you should play aggressively and harass them if they get close to your creeps. Hopefully your partner is competent enough to harass the enemy from afar.

Laning against 1 Meele Hero and 1 Ranged Hero:
You and the enemy are on even grounds now, you and the opposing Meele Hero is gonna take the heat from the harassment of the respective opposing Ranged Hero. If you are good enough with your last hit and don't need your Jinada, you can always use it to harass your Meele opponent.

Laning against 2 Ranged Hero:
At this point, if the opponent is competent enough you will be forced to play passively as you are the easiest target for harassment. Always agro creeps by right clicking a enemy hero and moving backward so the enemy creep will attack your ranged creep while you can safely last hit some creeps.

Laning with a Meele Hero

Laning against 2 Meele Hero:
You and the enemy are on even grounds, its very likely that for hero will be cramped between the meele creep line. Not much to do here but try to last hit, deny, harass when the chance arrives and don't push your creep line too far.

Laning against 1 Meele Hero and 1 Ranged Hero:
It's painful to be harassed, so it's much better to play safe and waiting for the right time to last hit and agro creeps so you can last hit easier. Let your lane partner take the harassment, its not nice, but better him than you, chances are he's less fragile than you.

Laning against 2 Ranged Heroes:
This pair-up is going to rather hard, chances are you are going to get harassed a lot. They are going to deny creeps and it's going to be rather hard for you to last hit. The silver lining is that hopefully the ranged enemies were stupid enough to push the creep line to the tower so you can last hit easier and level up faster.

Ganking Etiquette:

Scout a target, preferably a lone wolf without an escape mechanism that decided it would be a wise decision to farm a lane while the enemy's heroes is missing.

Wind Walk next to your target, if you went ganking with disablers, let the disablers throw their disables at the target. Next, you break your invisibility with a devastating Jinada, track the target. His life should be fairly low now so keep attacking him and when the time is right use Shuriken Toss for an easy kill. *Note: It's advisable to let your Wind Walk finish its cooldown or almost finishes its cooldown before breaking invisibility because sometimes you might get counter ganked and you have to save yourself.*

Pros/Cons

Pros:
[+] Nice base movement speed,which is 315
[+] auto gem(Track).
[+] Above average sight vision during night(1000).
[+] mini-stun that can stop teleport scrolls(Shuriken Toss).
[+] extra gold,increased movement speed and able to lower armor
and you won't get scolded(Shuriken Toss)
[+] does not depend on items to earn money
[+] Good escape mechanism(Windwalk)

Cons:
[-] Tends to run out of mana.
[-] soft.
[-] No AoE so he can only kill one at a time.
[-] He's ugly.
[-] Relies on ambush if he is not fat.

I almost always get Vlads.

You did leave out a lot of good items for Gondar though.

Anyway, +1.

Taking a level Jinada earlier is a better way to win. I usually either take it first or second, and then focus on Shuriken Toss and Windwalk.

Yeah I agree. My skill build with Gondar is usually

-Windwalk
-Shuriken
-Shuriken
-Jinada
-Shuriken
-Ult
-Shuriken
-Jinada
-Jinada
-Jinada
->Then max windwalk, then stats. And Ult at 11 and 16.

Really the 15 secs on WW is more than enough to set up for ganks or get away from an enemy. The burst from Shuriken and Jin are what is going to allow you to get fed early game.

I would have to agree with the Earlier Jinada. Not only does it allow for some free harassment but it can allow for easier early kills more than your suggested build does.

Early 1 pt Jinada is definitely the way to go.

Early Vlads is most likely not a good choice, the money could've been spent on a hammer.

Also, how come skills aren't tooltip'd?

A part of this guide copied from playdota's The Bounty Hunter Public Version.

It's not enough to close the guide, it's just one section, but if someone sees more copied from another guide, please tell me.

People, just make your own content, or at least re-phrase what you've copied and make it not a total rip-off. -_-
