Hello everyone, thanks for reading this guide.
This guide shows that Sven can resign from farming, and focus on supporting carry (ranged one preferably)
However this build should not be used when there is no strong carry in team.
I honestly think that Sven is one of the less item dependent heroes which can act as semi-carry at same time, and being a threat.
(It works much better with secondary support in team)
Pros / Cons
AoE Stun with quite good damage
Good STR and AGI gain
Not that item dependent (really)
It is Sven!
If you manage to get gold somehow, both you and your lane partner will dominate game entirely
Low INT gain
Might have problems against several hero combinations
People might expect him to carry
If your lane partner can't lasthit properly,eh, you know that story... your ancient is under attack and so on...
Sven is better if his lane partner is ranged hero due to fact, that two melee heroes might get into problem even against mediocre players. There are however some exceptions to that, and also some exceptions to ranged heroes. I will try to explain it in simplified way.
If you go on lane with another support, and you are the one to farm. Go with his regular build from another guides. Or just get "Core" and "If You somehow managed to farm" items.
Lane partner with crowd control is not mandatory, but this nearly ensures first blood due to your great stun.
Sven should take enemy harassment on himself.
List of heroes that works better than rest
on same lane with support Sven. (Special Mentions)
, Traxex can make 100% sure silence and slow on her target, leading to an easy kill.
There are some good viable Necrolyte carry builds, and Sven is someone that can ensure those work greatly. This however require Necrolyte which knows how to not
play him as support.
Very similar to Drow Ranger in terms of laning with him. He may lack silence, but makes that up with tankiness. Ward jungle as Viper's low movement speed makes him susceptible to ganks.
One of the melee heroes I would definitely want to support. His Torrent and your Stun
are great combo, later on his Tidebringer and your cleave might work wonders too.
and his Waveform and Adaptive Strike are powerful combination. Just make sure you won't get ganked. Morphling low range may make it hard on some circumstances.
That was my first guide, I understand it doesn't really tell anything new, but it might open one's eyes on new Sven experience.
English is also not my first language.
I await constructive criticism, thanks again for reading my guide.
