Yep. Right clicker KotL. Please note that this is not by any way the best way to build KotL, support KotL is still much more viable. This build is for bored ones who just want to try something new. In pubs, people will probably hate you for that, so if you want to try, do so either in lobby, or with a team of your friends.
Starting out taking 3 Iron Branches, which will be turned into a Magic Wand. You should also buy a courier (to look like a good guy) and Tango and Healing Salve.
Early game you need Boots of Speed which you will turn into Power Treads. Power treads give you nice attack speed, and a little bit of survivability since you are made of paper. You also need a Bracer to further boost your hp, and a Headdress which will later become a Mekansm.
After that, take a maaelstrom and turn it into Mjollnir. After getting maelstrom, get a Javelin and turn it into Monkey King Bar. You should have your MKB before finishing Mjollnir. Geting a Mask of Madness is nice to gain a bit more attack speed and lifesteal. However it makes you take even more damage, so a Heart of Tarrasque is a viable option.
After that, you have plenty to choose from. Eye of Skadi could be a good idea to boost your vitality, damage, and ensure nobody flees. Heaven's Halberd would be a good idea if you have several right clickers against you. Daedalus could be nice to boost your damage output greatly. Or take a Desolator if nobody on your team has it. Scythe of Vyse is nice too, for that bit of int and a good disable. It's all VERY situational.
Ideal partner for your lane would be a farm independent either semi-carry or a support (but if you wanted an ideal lane set-up, you wouldn't make KotL a carry). Queen of Pain or Vengeful Spirit would work well. If you can do so without killing creeps, harrass the hell out of your opponents, as you can do it constantly. If you can't do so without pushing, supply your partner with mana so they can harrass with single target spells (if they have any, of course). You are really a bad ganker, but you can definitely try. If you succeed to hit the middle laner with illuminate, it should go easily. Also, you can buy wards since your farm can really be infinite when it comes to that. Also you should be careful since the other team will probably hate you, and will want to get rid of you as much as possible.
Kill people. Once you have Mjollnir, Monkey King Bar and Heart of Tarrasque you should be a really bold threat. You can throw a Black King Bar if you feel like you're getting focused down (which you probably will). And if you find yourself losing, just get a shadowblade and backdoor them. Cotl is an excellent backdoor pusher, since you can destroy a creep wave in mere 5 seconds, and shadowblade out if neccessary. Or murder them, depending how your farm goes.
Cotl is really a lot of fun, but please, don't do it in pub games (I did, and nearly got reported, eventhough we won). Please note, that this is not by any means a serious build which you should use often, it's just for fun! Please, give me some constructive feedback (nothing like "lol, dis sux"). Thank you!
