The Beginning

I was fed up. I was done with the instapick invokers and last pick alchemists.
Every game was Peruvians queued in USA east with ez mid as their entire understanding of the English language.
Sick of the jungling legions, the feeding Voids, I needed a way to carry my team without being a "carry", a farmless hero to wreck pubs and dumpster noobs.
Then I found it.


This is my personal pubstomp build. It is NOT the optimal Necrophos build, but i have a 90% winrate with it and it is hella fun. Keep that in mind and comment accordingly. Enjoy!

Strategy in a Nutshell

You don't farm. You let the other four *******s on your team farm creeps. You farm Peruvians. You be a good little bottom ***** and you buy Cour and Wards like you should.
You stack, pull and make your team happy. Then when you get level six, you killsteal. Every single time your ulti is off cooldown you steal a kill. I don't care if they are reporting, harassing, pinging, flaming, crying, feeding, nothing. You take every single kill and get full Dagon quick as lightning. Then you steal more kills

A Quick Review of Your Abillities

Death Pulse a.k.a the stay alive button. A good nuke and an aoe heal. Max second.
Heartstopper Aura Makes people you are laining against cry. Max first, because it gets less usefull as the game goes on.
Sadist this is what makes you so hard to kill. Lets you regen health and mana off of creeps and is refreshing as a hot spring when you steal kills.
Reaper's Scythe is a better Culling Blade and one half of your Wombo Combo.

Items Other than Dagon

Before Dagon
Headress gives you all the sustain you need in lane.
Boots of Speed lets you get away, and more importantly, steal more kills.
After Dagon
Guardian Greaves is generally what I build next, health, mana, and and auras that appease your butthurt teammates.
Aghanim's Scepter is probably the last item you will build, as the game will be over.
Ethereal Blade is extra magic damage for your Wombo.
Shadow Blade. Only buy this if you accept the fact you are going to hell.
Blademail AH AH AH AH stayin alive, stayin alive.
Orchid Malvolenceis MOAR MAGIC DAMAGE. And a nice silence.

The Wombo.

Reaper's Scythe then immediatly Dagon and Death Pulse.

Life before Dagon (early game)

The hardest thing about this build is conserving mana. You should not Death Pulse unless you are about to die or ""secure"" a kill.
We get an early point into Sadist so you can heal off of creeps, but generally you focus on harass and denying. Play as a support, but kill like a carry.
Play passive and let your Heartstopper do most of the work.

Life After Dagon

Run around blasting *******s with the Wombo Combo listed above.
You arent really tanky, so let your worthless teammates go in first.
Don't go anywhere alone mid to late game. Follow around your sheep or have one of them be your bodyguard.

Misc Advice

Nukers make good friends.
You can jungle.
Heartstopper Aura means you can't sneak up on people.
Text mute is now a thing.
Feel free to put extra points into Sadist early if you're getting harassed.
