Hey dotafire ppl,

do you think Dragon Lance is actually imbalanced item? In my opinion, it's one of the most OP items in the game currently since it's incredibly cost-effective while having the most expensive part Ogre Club which is used to build of BKB. I just hope IceFrog doesn|t nerf it next patch.

What are Your opinions on this item? I seem to build it almost on every viable hero with pretty good success.

The item is really good, but since it's only viable on heroes that are pretty underpowered otherwise, I don't see how it can be called OP.

See the item more like a buff to heroes like Drow Ranger, who honestly really need it.

Apart from maybe Terrorblade, I can't see a hero that can be called OP with this item.

Dragon Lance is only viable on ranged heroes :D

Also, not viable on Intelligence heroes.

Incorrect, if Vanguard didn't build into Abyssal Blade, you'd 100% be going lance on PL these days.

Thanks to dragon lance, tb is back.
You can skip yasha, build dragon lance into bot, and be more tankier.
Not to mention it does give a better range to your attacks.

I recently played one where i went 1 WB, 1 Aquila, QB ,bots and Dragon lance.
Ratted so hard , it would make naga cry.

Dragon Lance > Yasha > Travels :) Can't skip Yasha cause it's the best farming item by far and it makes you harder to kite.

Bah, humbug.

Just put one skill point in q instead of putting all of them in stats.

Press q and run away.

TFW Drum of Endurance has become so bad that people would rather buy a Dragon Lance on a melee hero...

Drums is a pos3 item. 6 charges, easy buildup and all effects are thru an aura. Its good for a push, and deserves to be considered in lineups that are eaely skirmish heavy. Its still a good item, not for the stars but for the utility.
