Guide to Safelane slark
This is my first guide so please no hate
Anyway you want to try and get a dazzle/crystal in your lane to babysit you early on and pull, don't waste mana and don't engage in kills until level 3, lane presence is a must!
Slark thrives on a Midas and is one of the only people I buy one on, due to the attack speed and exp bonus you will get.
Procuring your treads simply means more attack speed so more stats for you, yay. you want to be swapping to int when casting, agility when hitting, and strength while being hit. this will mean you never die. or at least shouldn't.
After you have ult you will be able to gank very effectively, give up your lane for someone and go get your mid a kill. this should give you enough by now for a shadow blade(1st) and a yasha (2nd).
Skadi is core on slark, buy it, simple.
From here buy whatever the hell you want as you should be farmed enough not to care about a puny carry who you killed 5 times in lane.
If this works please give my build a thumbs up for more, and give me any requests for my next one.
Using Dark pact before you jump means you can purge any stuns they throw at you and also make sure they don't blink or staff away from you, then hit them, a lot.
pounce takes a bit of getting used to, maybe practice in a bot match or non ranked first just to become MLG jumper man.
Essence shift really comes into play late game and when you keep the stats for 120 seconds is a really op passive.
Slarks ult provides REGEN, don't engage with it, use it when you have drawn a bit of damage first.
