Hi guys, today I'm gonna post a Pudge build. As we know, Pudge is a STR hero which relies on the player. I'm sorry. Let me restart. As we know, Pudge is a STR hero with high-damage skills. This hero is very good when you are against INT heroes, or PAPER-CARRY or something like that. Anyway, you know who he is. Let's move on.
+ High STR, high HP
+ High dmg skills
+ Easy farm
+ Strong ganker
+ Suicide ability, when you can't chase away your enemy < >
+ Pretty fast reaction time
+ Low mana pool
+ Weak late game hero
+ Because of him, enemy supports will always plant Observer Wards Observer Wards.
+ Hard to master, need something like sixth sense
First, you have to start with this
You could either upgrade the Branches to a or sell them, up to you. As for the Gauntlet, you will later upgrade it to Urn of Shadows.
THIS IS PUDGE'S LIFE. After you buy your Magic Stick, you should have 2 empty slots. Farm till you got 700gold, and buy a bottle. Pudge is a ganking-type hero, which means he will, of course, swims through the river to top and bottom lane. And as we know, in Dota2, we got 2 rune spots which is located on left and right river. This is where you use your Bottle's ability to refill the charge, since 2 Hooks will probably drain your mana.
Blink Dagger is Pudge's most important item, since Pudge is a "get into blind spot - hook - dismember - YAY type of hero. You need this item to get into between trees, escape, or starting a war, which I wouldn't recommend
OMG WHY I FORGOT TO PUT THIS IN THE BEGINNING OMG SO NOOOOOBBB!!
You can choose either Arcane Boots or Tranquil Boots for your shoes.
Pick Arcane Boots if you got no support, or you got 1 support but it's a ****ty support who always gets killed and as a result, no Arcane Boots.
Pick Tranquil Boots if you already got a good support with a sense of duty XD. I personally choose Tranquil Boots rather than Arcane Boots, cause I already got a bottle, and with or without wards, I can always use the courier to take the bottle, back to base, refill, and bring it back to me, so NO MANA ISSUE. Tranquil Boots provides you extra movement speed and regeneration after 13s outside battle, and it's no joke ^^ , whilist Arcane Boots only provides mana every 45something second, so, not worth, I guess.
In the end, thanks for reading this. It's my first thread. Sorry for the grammantical mistakes, please give me comments so that I can do better in the future, and thanks again for reading this!!
Don't let a noob use Pudge, seriously.
