Jungle With Ursa
October 7, 2012
Ursa's first ability in order of appearance is Earthshock, a short range Area of Effect slow with a damage component.
Ursa's second ability is overpower which makes up to 6 of his next physical attacks fire off incredibly quickly.
Your first choice once you get into the game is what spell to choose, as jungle Ursa our best choice is Fury Swipes, which is a passive ability costing no mana that makes each attack you land deal additional damage that seems to stack indefinitely.
Ursa's ultimate ability is Enrage, which grants a percentage of your current health as additional damage.
When using your attack buffing abilities Overpower and Enrage, try to cast them before you reveal yourself as they both have animation times that could cost you a kill, and in the cast of overpower starts the short cooldown towards having it ready again.
Once you have picked your target stay on him. although Fury swipes can be applied to multiple units its best not to, as injured enemies still deal full damage but dead enemies do not (usually!) also the debuff is lost if you do not attack the same target again within 6 seconds.
Your money should be entirely devoted to the improvement of your character, and although it seems selfish it's actually what your teams needs from you to win, this is what It means to be a good carry.
Your main goal in the first 10 minutes of the game is to buy the item Vladmir's Offering, so once you have your starting items I suggest you drag it straight to your quickbar for easy purchase as you make money.
The most efficient way to buy Vladmirs Offering is to buy the Ring of Regen and use the courier to ferry it to yourself taking care to make sure the middle lane doesnt need it to courier his bottle, then get the full Ring of Basilius and a healing potion.
As the attack modifier of life steal from Morbid Mask doesnt stack with fury swipes, be sure to get it as the last item, even though buying a pattern before you have all the other items is usually considered useless, in this case if you have it you can complete Vladamirs at the outpost
Once you have finished Vladmirs, add Phase Boots to your quick buy bar and head out to Roshan and try and get Aegis of the Immortal, either with the help of your team or by yourself. Your team don't even have to help you directly, indirectly guarding you works too.
If you managed to slay Roshan, you now probably have two thirds of your phaseboots. All components can be bought from the outpost as well as the base, So once again you can gank a lane as part of your shopping trip.
Phase boots give slightly less passive movement speed than the other boots choices but give you activatable phasing which allows you to walk through units in your way and for the duration faster movement speed than the other boots.
Once you get next to your target you can use Earthshock as the spell has a long animation against a moving opponent and you are far more likely to hit this way
Next we are buying Sange and Yasha, more specifically the Sange part, it provides health, and with your ultimate, health is damage, but most of all it provides a movement speed slow that you can apply to enemies, combined with overpower you are almost guaranteed that your target won't be going anywhere unless you get crowd controlled (with level 4 Overpower thats 6 chances to proc 'Maim' at 15% per hit)
At this point the game may be over or in a state where you only want to save for buy-back money, but don't worry if it isnt. Purchase a Black King Bar, which eliminates your only weakness, Crowd Control Spells and items.
Next buy a Blink Dagger, with this you can take the time you lost pre-casting enrage before you revealed yourself right back and use it to deal massive damage for longer, it will also allow you to make some great escapes too.
Finally grab a Linken's Sphere, one thing people will try to do is save a stun or other Crowd Control for you the very second Black King Bar runs out, won't they be suprised when it doesn't affect you and you bear-mangle them anyway! This will make those weak of will concede, congratulations you won! (Hopefully)
