Hey Caeus, glad to see you around!

Thank you for updating your Sniper guide! If you would like to improve the visual aesthetics of your guide, I suggest using brackets around items, abilities and heroes to highlight them and enable their tool tips.

For example - instead of Assassinate you can have Assassinate by doing the following:

I would be happy to help you with your guide, if you need any advice or help whatsoever, please feel free to let me know! :)

Great guide, I like the basic ideas, you wrote about the sniper. I agree with you with many ideas, just one thought:
You dont have any item to get HP after the beginning of the game (when Tango gets more and more usuless). Especially for beginners, who do mistakes it is essential. I like the Morbid Mask, that gives you 15% of the attack damage and is one of the most important items I take. You can buy this item after some minutes in the game in contrary to Satanic, which is a late game item.
I prefer Phase boots than Power Treads, but you dont need to click your phase boots to get better damage output and movement speed. By activating the boots you just get even more movement speed. You can misunderstand your text a bit.
My skill build is different, I like shrapnes for leveling and farming, take aim and headshots are less important for me, I take just the first level early and the rest later in the game.

I agree. But if you need to push or defend when the has enemy advantage in pushing in EARLY/MID GAME(lol), I prefer Mask of Madness for attack speed and enough lifesteal to survive(best with Hyperstone).

While I find him to be very easy to use, I don't think new players should start with Sniper since he requires great map awareness in order to make sure that you don't just end up feeding the enemy team with countless deaths (which is quite easy to do as Sniper since he has no survivability or means of escape).
