Axe - Aggressive Lumberjacking

May 14, 2013

Introduction and explaining the build

This build is an aggressive sort of non-typical Axe build that evolves around, chasing, draining hp and using Ulti to finish heroes off with the mana and health-pool to back it up.
Utilizing Battlehunger and Helix are the primary skillsequences we're talking about here, and they will remain the most important spells during the game. But the MOST IMPORTANT PART of this build is that you will have no form of initiation except moving, so think smart and take SAFE risks.

Starting out, Building towards Tranquil Boots is crucial.
I usually go with the normal starting items but getting tango instead of Health pot. The goal here is to get inbetween the enemy heroes you're facing utilizing the Helix, and i feel the tango helps with regen during fights where the healthpot doesn't.
What you must keep in mind is that the enemy creeps will only aggro you when you're attack-clicking the enemy.

Urn of Shadows is the next item you should aim for. This will help you drain the enemy health further on top of the Battle Hunger-buff and healing you during the game.

Now going into mid-game you want to start building towards Aganim's Scepter and Bloodstone. When building Aganim's, start off with Ogre's Club for the extra health. This is the kind of mentality you will need to keep when building these items, cutting corners here and there for your overall "tankiness".

At this point you should be pretty much the most annoying player in the game.
I usually end up with buying a Heaven's Halberd This gives you some 25% needed evasion, HP, DMG and the ability to disarm the AGI-carrys.

Have fun, evolve as a player and enjoy this unorthodox build!
