Anybody consider getting a divine rapier on Slark

If you are losing, definetly. With BKB Slark has 4 second of invulnerability - quite enough to destry enemy carry and get some agility to slar other target more efficiently. Slark might be the best hero for Rapier comebacks.

True story also skadi isnt one of the most hard damage orb effect or unique attack modifiers as called in dota 2.Most orb effects are like catalysts in killing process with top 2 desolator and diffusal bladde.However with the ***** fight type slark does you had better getting skadi.

Slark is a DPS monster, he doesn't need the damage. All his damage is unconventional too which makes him good against carries like Spectre and Medusa. I personally find a full Skadi too much of a hassle to acquire, but if your fed its a great item.

I'm not saying you should add lifesteal, I was just pointing out that with Skadi you have limited options in items.

You dont really need lifesteal.You just need to step in and out of combat once or twice.
Once you got enough stats you ruin your enemies and you use your shadow dance while fighting and regen some hp.

I stand corrected on my previous post, I had forgotten that Lifesteal only stacks with Skadi on ranged attacks. So if Skadi is your core, then the only option you have for Lifesteal is Vladamir's.

Unlike others I like the use of a MoM, situational only (when in shadow dance) but this guide seems ok. I question your use of some items (my playstle does not support them) but you reason them out well. However your eye of Skadi does not really support the aggressive build you seek in terms of health. Your armament and MoM can than backfire without proper care.

any item or character is **** against someone who can counter them. MoM is just an example. By all means use MoM.

Sange Yasha isnt an orb any more .And no Mom is just bad versus a team that knows how to play against slark .

This is a very great early game build, every item you listed in core for Slark is cost-effective. Good for an early-game team line-up, but it makes his late game weaker then normal and he already has a bad late. A situational build, but with the right team composition you'll have a great pay off.

You should remove Heaven's Halberd, Sange and Yasha, and Desolator. These orbs do not stack with Eye of Skadi, the only considerable orbs would be any lifesteal and Maelstrom/Mjollnir. If you do happen to pick up Diffusal, then Maelstrom/Mjollnir is your only option. On the use of the Mask, I personally repute the use of MoM on a glass cannon, if you do pick this up then it should be noted that you have a BKB first.

If you're balling hard on a game, you can always consider vyse! It gives you some great stats, that slark needs so much, and you can pounce go invi, and as soon as you go visible again, just sheep the guy, surprisingly effective.

But once again, it's an extra luxury item, and should only be picked up if you're doing extremely well, and only after bkb.
