Hey guys, I've been having a good amount of success with the Lich as a position 5 support: getting better with my wards, memorized my favorite item builds, etc.

My game is to be a hard support at this point, going for sacrifice first and I think I'll be going for frost armor 2nd for a bit to really make farming difficult in those first few levels for the opposition.

I wanted to know if someone could look over a couple of my games and give me one or two things to work on moving forward. I feel like I can be a bit too aggro and, when the opposition is allowed to snowball because the other lane is having trouble or I'm just up against some pros, I tend to wind up with the most deaths. When things are going well, however, I usually have the most assists or kills as I've really gotten better with Lich's ult.

Any advice would be taken quite seriously and would really be appreciated, my DotaBUFF account name is the same and available at

Thanks guys,
- Ryan

I was going to take a look for you, but unfortunately a friend was in touch and ended up playing instead.

The first question I'd ask about your build is the Eul's Scepter of Divinity? It's a good item generally, but has no particular synergy with Lich - why are you getting it so often? I'd also recommend you think about picking up an Urn of Shadows if nobody else is - good stats for you, and the chance to heal allies without splashing out on a Mekansm, which is only real good early game, so doesn't work too well on a #5.

Other items to look at as a priority - Veil of Discord is probably superior to Aghanim's Scepter and is cheaper too. Ghost Scepter will help your death rate if the game goes late.

Will try and have a quick look for you tomorrow for playstyle specific comments.
