So this is my first guide!
Constructive criticism is welcomed!

So i've played DK a fair few times and he is one of my favourite heroes, he is easy to use and if fed and farmed well, can be a monster.

I'll talk over some of the items i've chosen in the guide and why but i won't try to bore you too much.


Starting Items:
Quick and easy starting items, quelling blade is a must as early on his base damage is awful. You'll need this to successfully get those last hits in!

Early Game:
Early game i always take a bracer, for some like DK it is a great cheap pick up and adds to the tankiness! Power treads are great for him too, as the extra attack speed certainly helps as well as the attributes. (I always leave mine on strength)
Now, most guides advise a Helm of the dominator, this is a great choice if you want to further it into a Santanic late game. However, if no one in the team has one, i usually pick up a Vlad, it's good for you and the team!

Mid Game:
I always go for a cuirass to whack up his attack speed and armour, it's a good pick item for DK. Someone already has one? Buy one anyway, you benefit a lot from a cuirass.
Black King bar, now i have had a few games where i have not needed one, but if you find yourself getting shut down a lot and pesky magic users are ruining your day, get one!
Pick up a Maelstrom as you'll want to further it into a Mjolnir late game.

Late Game:
Complete the Mjolnir and laugh maniacally as you tear down the team in ancient dragon form!
Complete your Satanic if you went for the HoD!
Sometimes i pick up a heart, sometimes i don't, all depends on how quickly they can bring your HP down, if it's dropping rather quickly, then go for a heart.

Situational Items:
Blade mail is a nice pick up if someone on your team has cuirass and you want some extra armour, also it's great against crit hitting heroes.
Hood is perfect if you're facing a heavy magic orientated team (magic resis + lots of hp regen)
Monkey King Bar is a must if facing a Phantom Assassin, Riki, Bounty Hunter, any agility hero who has evaision or will have.
Moonstone if you have been fed through the roof and want added lols.

Skill Sequence!

The Skill sequence is what i usually go for, you dont need the max stun till later, however the Dragons blood and Breath fire is a must.
I always take Dragons blood first, so if i get harassed in a lane, i have regen, armour as well as my yummy tango.
Breath fire usually comes after so i can do a little harass myself, push lane a little or get some last hits in if its a hard lane.
Rest of sequence speaks for itself.
