I'm DucksAreMagical, I've been playing Dota 2 for about 1 1/2 years, My favourite heroes are strength heroes that are meant to tank for there team, and agility heroes that deal alot of damage to single targets.
I've played alot of Bristle Back, Centaur Warrunner and Axe, I do prefer Centaur over them all though, just because he has a better late game presence than the rest.
Bristle Back has one of the greatest early game killing potentials, just because of his Quill Spray and Viscous Nasal Goo, but also he can turn a run away from 3 heroes to a chase on 3 heroes, Bristleback is the best early - mid game reduction ability because it not only reduces ALL damage from behind this includes pure damage.
This makes a Lina ult maxed with ags deal 570 damage, which gives 2 stacks of Quill Spray and reduces a killing blow to little more than a scratch (for a ultimate).
Viscous Nasal Goo - Slow + Armour Reduction can stack up to 56% Slow and - 8.8 armour.
Quill Spray - Base Damage + Stack Damage - Stacks up to 400 damage
Bristleback - 40% Damage Reduction from behind and 20% from the side, shoots out a Quill Spray when you take 250 damage from behind.
Warpath - Stacking; Damage and Movement speed from using spells (doesn't count the passive spray from Bristleback. Stacks up to 35% movement speed and 210 damage.
Vanguard -The bread and butter of a tanky heroes, and the extra damage reduction
Hood of Defiance - Extra damage reduction
Arcane Boots - Helps with early - mid game mana problems.
Octarine Core - Mana regen + raw mana, health, Spell Steal (Quill Spray Life Steal)
Heart of Tarrasque - Late game tank item.
Crimson Guard - You will have your inventory filled by this point might aswell upgrade an item
Boots of Travel - Helps to push lanes, get away, and goes well with Warpath because you get max move speed at 7 stacks.
