Yeah i am lazy, but i wanted to give this a try. I have not gotten into the Dota2 beta. So this is purely based around HoN. But they are pretty much 100% Equal. So why not right?
This is allot based on my Behemoth guide over at the HoN website, with some changes to fit into Dota. So don't be hatin, only trying to see how this turns out ;).
So if you see any translation i missed or was wrong about, please let me know :).

Let me welcome you to my little mini guide to Earthshaker. lets start!
Echo Slam > Fissure > Aftershock > Enchant Totem
Pretty simple, We wanna max out our AOE damage, and this is the best way to do it.
We wanna have atleast one point in Enchant Totem before level 6, we do this so we can proc aftershock.
Your bread and butter skill, this is the skill that shows how good of a Earthshaker player you are. A good fissure can secure a kill, do some insane early level ganks, and even make a 5v5 to an 5v3.
But on the flip side this team can screw your own team over as much as it can screw the enemy team. So practice this skill allot!
When you start you wanna ask your self.
"Is my ally getting a Ring of Basilius?" and if you go to hard lane: "Do we got wards"
If you go easy lane, you wanna get a Ring of Basilius, this item is just so amazing, it gives you and your lane mate the mana sustain you will need. Some nice damage and armor to be competitive on the last hits.
Remember to have the aura set to "Heroes only", if not, you will push the lane because the extra armor to creeps. But a nice little trick you can do to **** with your enemies is to turn on the ring for creeps just as the enemy is about to last hit, this will some times make the enemy fail the last hit.
So if you are gonna get Ring of Basilius, Look at the build.
And if you need wards for hard lane. Look at the build
If your team mate already building a ring? Good for you, now either buy or upgrade Currier.
Earthshaker need one item, and one item only.
So you got fed? Good for you, now you wanna get some penta/annihilation kills i guess? Ok let see if i can help you with that.
There are 4 items i wanna recommend:
(Gank) Without portal key:
Fissure -> Enchant Totem -> Auto attack
(Gank) With portal key:
Blink -> Enchant Totem -> auto attack -> Fissure -> auto attack
(Teamfight) Without portal key:
Find highest threat/ clumped up enemies -> Echo Slam -> Enchant Totem -> Fissure -> auto attack
(Teamfight) With portal key:
Find clumped up enemies -> Blink -> Echo Slam -> Fissure -> Enchant Totem -> Shiva's Guard/ auto attack
Just a quick Build / mini guide i threw together for the site.
Hope you enjoy it. ;)
