My First Guide

This is my first guide ever but I've seen no Leshrac guides up here so decided to share how I've been building my Leshrac runs. It's worked pretty well for holding down the mid lane and pushing hard in team fights and knocking towers down.

Creeping / Jungling

Leshrac works great at Creeping in the lanes even best solo if lane pushing.

I let the creeps group up and then I do Split Earth followed by a quick Lightning Storm.

At this point I just got a ton of last hits, extra gold and quick leveling up.

Then refresh your mana with the boots and keep pushing. Also works decent jungling when you get higher up. Lately I'm generally the highest level person on my team if not 1 level under the carry.

Team Work

Remember to work with your Team. Leshrac is a huge team fighter. Try to not engage unless your Team is engaging, unless its a 1v1. Try to time your Stun (Split Earth) perfectly, sometimes you can hit more than one person with it, then turn on Pulse Nova and Diabolic Edict and don't forget to hit the target with your Standard Auto Cast Attack, this damage will add up and you will get a couple kills.

Remember use Diabolic on Towers it works great!

First off this isn't a guide it's a build and a rather strange one. Secondly the skill build is more effective if you actually level his lightning. You mention knocking down towers thus the edict build. But you never explain it because there is no guide content.

I play a bit of Leshrac and I disagree. I've found that which skill build I go can change drastically depending on the direction of the game / who I am facing. There have been games where I max out lightning first, and there have been games where I max out lightning last. It really depends, although I think maxing out lightning first is the best way to go about it overall.

I am surprised you don't say to roll your face across the keyboard.

Also about the Lightning Storm debate, what you want is the most bang for your buck. Anyone who plays Leshrac would know that you run out of mana pretty easy early on. Just Split Earth and Diabolic Edict, once you get the mana pool and regeneration, then level Pulse Nova and Lightning Storm.

Congratulations, you win.

I have a riding mower so this analogy makes 0 sense to me.

That analogy makes 0 sense in general, maybe Ham mows the lawn often maybe he never mows the lawn maybe he doesn't own a lawnmower and if it is any of the above why post it with no relevant information?

Lesh can be played many ways. It depends on the team. Pusher you get edict and lightening, if you are a ganker go split and lightening. Always get a level of stun for obvious reasons. But it also depends on the heroes you are playing. loveless and Ham why are you too so strongly oppinionated? Your opinions are the only right ones... Also I think the most feasible build is lightening and split earth. Edict makes you run into danger more often than not. You don't have a lot of Health.


TL DR: Loveless and Ham you arnt always right, relax. Lightening and Split earth is better because edict early game makes you run into danger more often than not.

You are less right than we are most of the time. If you want to play Leshrac the best way possible, it is as a pusher. His Lightning Storm's damage is pale in comparison to Split Earth and Diabolic Edict, on top of that both are much more capable of pushing.
