AXE JUNGLE 7.05 Domination Early Game

May 15, 2017


Axe is one of those hero that just like dominating early game
his damage output is determined by the picks of the opposite team however. Axe will do great against any right click mele hero(Pa, Sven, Jug..etc). Axe is one of the only heroes that can kill these position 1 heroes by himself. immediately after getting blink you should also buy a tp and a smoke to gank any offlaner this is around minute 9. The way to play Axe with optimal damage this patch is to play the counter initiation role in team fights and the initiation role in ganks. This means in pushes you should position yourself away from your team to be ready to jump the team after they jump yours. This is more consistent than front-lining without vision and it allows for optimal bezerker call on the enemy heroes. Axes damage output is based on how many heroes/creeps you manage to get in a single call, Axe himself will max out damage after you max out counter helix and blade mail. Axe is able to domanate early game for these reasons which is why he is so good when wanting to close out a game early, however if this is not possible Axe with proper vision is one of the best heroes at stopping Highground pushes the ability to disable all heroes regardless of spell impumity or not is a huge advantage. This is why be selctive with picking him he does best with "Glass cannons" Heroes who hit hard and have little health. Axe in the late game serves this purpose pinning people down as your carry kills them. So picking a OD along with axe is great.


At 30 seconds kill the easy camp. Right after this depending on RNG if you kill it by 48 seconds you have enough time to make your way down to the medium camp and stack it. After this at the 1 minute mark take the spawned easy camp again. Right after this you will have enough money to purshase the iron talon. When you get your iron talon you can take the stacked medum camp. Take the next camp adjacent to it. Axe can only take the hailbard Bear camp if its stacked at low lvls if its not skip the camp until your higher lvl. When you get enough gold purchase your boots and then dagger.


When you have enough gold for Dagger typically if you got your stacks correctly should be around minute 8 buy a smoke and immediately tp and look for the enemies position one. This is where you make your first appearance!!!!!!!!!!!!
