Introduction

No one can learn Invoker from a guide. So i dont think its necessary to explain how to creep, how to play. This guide is to teach you items and skills (also skill combos which really hurts.)
Invoker can be played in 2 ways. Carry or Nuker. I prefer nuker. But carry also can rock. Even if you farmed carry, you should use your skills very well (to escape or to attack etc..)
I created a detailed skills chapter. You can check skills and Combos from this guide and start playing and trying to get used to them. My item build for carry is maybe not perfect but for nuker it is. Hope you will learn and enjoy playing invoker.

Invoke at level 3 makes this a terrible guide. Invoke at level 16 means that you don't even know how to play the hero.

Not good guide, you don't have any health regen items, one quas is not enough for full efficiency, aslo no mana regen items will make one have terrible mana problems. Also, no scepter...

Also could I ask why not to buy Eul when that one actually could solve the mana problems?
