Lycan.. The Night Hunter... ok it's all about the Lycan.. so.. when we talk about Lycan, all of us will think about the wolf.. The beast.. His twin wolves can help him in many thing such as scouting, deny rune, farming, slowing enemies and also pushing. Talking about pushing.. this hero can destroy a tower less than 5 sec if you got your item.. The best thing about this wolf, Lycan can easily chase his enemy... The only thing that you need to know about this hero is.. without FARM, you are NOTHING!!
Dont pick this hero when:
- There are too many stunner in enemies team
- There are too many escaper in enemies team like Ember Spirit and Storm Spirit
- There are summoner or illusioner like Phantom Lancer and Chaos Knight in enemies team
- You are the laziest farmer
- You are scary to chasing your enemies
-BEST HUNTER ever
-Nothing can slow you
-Really need item
-Useless in team
-Once fail.. it's too hard for your comebcak
One of your advantages.. this wolves can do almost everything that you need in the match... This wolf should be helpful in early-mid-late game if you know a few functions of this wolves.
Before the game start, summon your wolves and bring them to the enemy's rune spots, if possible, deny their rune. When the battle start, summon your wolves again and move to the jungle to start farming
The only thing that make you be the farmer is your wolves. When early jungle phase, you can use your wolves to add extra damage when farming. This will allow you to clearing the camp easily. Also help you tank in jungle when your hp is low.
Also your wolves profession. Your wolves became invisble in level 4, that's mean that you can ambush your enemy and what's your wolves function? place them in the enemy jungle, make sure that there are no enemy's friends nearby him.
Your wolves damage are great, don't igore this pottention. Remember that you have your important skill.. Feral Impuls, this will allow you to destroy the tower in a few seconds.
This skill is not very important when you are jungling. You can take this skill in mid game. This skill verry easy to use. Giving additional damage and health to all your friendly unit when you activated it. This skill will be very helpful in team. you can activated it during WAR, HUNTING, PUSHING.
This skill is your main skill in jungle, giving you extra damage also health regen. The best way to stay in jungle is by taking this skill in early game. This will allow you to stay in the jungle until your item done.
This skill is your advantage in your solo hunt. Giving additional damage by it's crit chance and also haste movement speed. That's mean that you cannot slowed by any slow. If you turned into a chicken ( Hex ) you also can run like a wolf. This can very helpful when you want to gank your enemy. By using his skill, you can got 1 or 2 kills in early game
The purpose of this item is only one, give more survivality during the process of creeping in jungle

Giving you more attack speed and movement speed and also extra strength. Thats mean that you got extra hp and also extra damage. This item will allow you to chase your enemy better in early
Armlet of Mordiggian
Damage item which is very suitable for Carry lycan. This item are too cheap but gives you too much. Damage, armor, and HP instant. Do not worry about your minus regen, because it will just turn away his unholy strength when the wolves exist (it was only for 8-15 seconds) makes you more great critical damage .. In addition, you have the right lifesteal ..
This item verrrrry suitable for you if you really want to build your Lycan to the hitter. Giving you extra attack, that's mean that your critical will kill your enemies faster. Also giving you extra mana regen which is one of your problem in game
Because these items are already cooldown so you will not be able to produce a bash. But Skull basher will remove your main problem, because you also need a semi-disabler when chased in the Maximum MS.
Helm of The Dominator
This item will allow you to dominate one creep. The creep will give you extra strength to destroy a tower. I suggest you to dominate the red bear and the big wolf. Extra attack speed or extra damage. Its good for chasing and pushing. Also giving you health regen and extra attack speed aura.
Also to make the army to destroy your enemies tower. This item can summon 2 worriors and you can push tower easily. Also giving you more strength and intelligence. This also will help you to chase the invisible hero such as Riki and Clinkz because the summons have a true sight
Black King Bar
Do not leave this item. You need to buy this for your comfortable in war. You have a great damage and physical strength. But you also can be stunned by the great stunner such as Dragon Knight and Sven. Use Black King Bar to improve your defense against your enemies
This item is the best for lycan. Corruption makes your critical damage very hurt. Also give you more damage. If your enemy's armor reduced, your wolves hits also will be hurt
Extra attack speed for you. Also give your team armor aura and reduced your enemies armor. This item should very helpful in war
Monkey King Bar
If your enemies is Phantom Assassin or anyone who will have a great evation, this item will help you to kill them. Also good for make sure your enemies also infront of you with it's mini stun.

You will not always be the wolf
Boots of Travel
Great item for pushing
Heart of Tarrasque
Make sure that your hp always full
Aegis of the Immortal
Nothing can stop you
When we are talking about talets, this can be one of the most confused thing to choose. Lets see what will we choose
When we talk about early game, Lycan is really useless for his team, except his 2nd skill, Howl. That's why you should jungle and give your lane to another hero who really need it.
Before start your game, chose your role, what you want to be? Pusher? Hitter? Stunner?
When you want to be the hitter, make sure a that your enemies are paper and not the crazy tank like Sven and Dragon Knight. This will Help you to kill them easily. Your main item is Echo Sabre, which can help you in mana problem, to make sure that you are always have a mana stock when you really need it. With Armlet extra attack speed, you will land more hit and damage to your opponent.
Mid game... You should finished your Black King Bar at least.
Now its the time be what you want to be
Your main target now is their support, in team fight, the enemies support will make a big trouble to your team. Dissabling, slowing and anything. Kill their support first. Majority of support are easy to get killed by you, for example, Crystal Maiden and Jakiro. You can kill them with or without your Black King Bar. Always bring TP to make sure that you are safe after ganking their support.
For stunner. Your main target is the hardest hero to get killed by your team. Bring your disabler or all of your team to kill him. You can kill them by using your Black King Bar and your Skull Basher, you should be able to land maybe 2 bash to your enemy. With your Black King Bar, you can chase him down without get stunned by him. For sure, bring TP to make sure that you can teleport back to your base if enemies come to you.
When you are playing as the pusher, make sure that your ultimate are ready when you are going tu push any tower. Activate your Howl and then Mask of Madness, destroy their tower. If the enemy come to you, use Shapeshift to make sure that you can run to the safe place. Why not use TP? when pushing, the enemy can ambush you from back. You can also get stunned and the last your Channeling will cancelled by it. So, if you want to run from them, make sure you have your ulitimate. Your ultimate cannot be dispell by anything, thats mean, you still can run after the duration of enemies stun is done.
Lets say that you have all of your item. You should end this game before they end you back. When the late game begin, your team should active ambushing the enemies. This is the only one use of your wolves in late game. Move them to find your enemies. click "M" to make sure that your wolves are only follow them not hit them. You or your team also can teleport to your wolves. Because of your wolves are invisible, your teleportation animation will never appear on enemies monitor and you can make a supprise to them.
When you want to end the game, make sure that u are not waiting for mega creep. You can do mega creep if your enemy still paper, but not when your status with him are same. Just push their mid lane and destroy their Ancient. We dont want to see their comeback by waiting for mega creep. Remember, end as fast as possible your match.
