Caroma Assassin

December 27, 2012


This build is based around mid/late game. Nyx Assassin may look like a pub stomp hero, but that's entirely incorrect! What this collection of items is focused on, is making sure Nyx doesn't scale down really hard after the mid game phase and provides a lot of utility to the hero. Why this collection of items? Hohoho. Nerubian's mana burn may be called useless by some, but as the game progresses it starts doing a lot of damage with a mere 4 seconds cooldown! These items provide Nyx with a sufficient pool of mana and really good survivability. With correct thought process and cooldown management, Nyx's stun, carapace, blink dagger, whirlwind, pushstick and ghost scepter it's possible to kite multiple enemies for a very very long time, which he needs to be able to spam his Mana Burn! Try it out breh, it's definitely better than Dagon. The blink dagger is a strong option and can be purchased at any point, it's in there as another option for initiation and mobility, it's optional but is too, a very strong item on Nyx. A luxury item on this build would be Hex, replacing that wand.
