Hello and welcome to another Asterii build!
This guide will focus on a laning, NON Burning Spear build for Huskar. I think he can be used effectively both ways and that both have there Pros and Cons. I will have another guide on using the power of Flame Spears later.
Huskar is one of those 'balls-deep' heroes like Night Stalker and Ursa where it is often better to continue attacking rather than look for a quick retreat. With some good CC and co-ordinationon from your team you can successfully gank almost every hero on the map at lvls 6 to 9.
Huskar does scale into the late game thanks to his passive third ability Berserker's Blood, but not as much as hard carries obviously. Hence why you should take all opportunity to gank whilst the game is still early to mid.
X3 Gauntlets of Strength and x2 Iron Branch may seem like somewhat of an unorthodox lot of starting items but as the first item you will be rushing for is Morbid Mask directly into Helm of the Helm of the Dominator, the need for regen can hopefully be mitigated with a few decent last hits within the first few creep waves. Once you have Morbid Mask you can stay in lane as long as you like just from bashing on a creep or two.
Also in addition to this, Inner Vitality scales off of your primary attribute meaning that taking 11 points of Str into lane actually increases the usefulness of the skill by an extra 1.5 HP/sec equating to a total of 55 HP restored at lvl 1.
Because of your lack of regen and escape mechanics, try to pick someone with a hard stun to cover your back in lane. Sand King or Vengeful Spirit work great.
