Hybrid BH build [Coupedegrace] 7.20
December 11, 2018
Hail and Well met!
This is the build Ive been running in pub runs since 7.20 and so far it has been fairly successful. Its a hybrid between Pure physical damage dealer and Shuriken Toss.
Playing as Pos 4 early game dont need too much farm, just make sure u land every Nijada on heroes (ideally harassing the Carry, but its amazing tool to harass their support and make sure your offlaner is dominating the lane). Try to rush Phase Boots, it amazing for chasing and early game escapes. Buy wards, alot of sentries to ensure your ganks are not anticipated. Observers - aggressive ones to hunt their mid or supports while pulling. Clarities will sustain you for mana and Vald is great for some fight sustain, also provides great stats for your teammates.
Try to gank alot in early game, as BH has damage advantage over other heroes in early game and has one of the best nuking abilities. Ensure to get kills so you get that gold, with that gold rush Sange and Kaya as the item is really effective on BH. Providing extra Movement speed and spell amp. After finishing Agha and getting level 20 Talent, Shuriken deals around 515 damage on once target. Having at least two hereos tracked that already 2050 damage with one spell that really changes the tide of battle. Rest of the items are really for survival, if you prefer you can put some Damage items there, or Get 40 attack speed instead of 350 health on Lvl 15 talent.
I fairly enjoy new BH and I thought to share this build with you who love some sneaky-stab-get-out play.
Level 1: Nijada - usually prefer to go with Nijada over Shadow Walk because it is amazing tool to harass carry on level one and make sure the Offlaner gets the advantage on lane. Plus you set up for your 1st kill after level 2 or 3.
Level 2: Shadow Walk - Ganks and initiation
Level 3: Shuriken Toss or Nijada: This really depands who you laning with and facing against. Most cases Shuriken Toss is better choice as it adds 150 damage on top, making it easy to secure the kills. Nijada on the other hand is better if you see you have no kill potential, with this BH is able to harass even harder with shorter CD. Good stuff.
Level 4: Nijada/Shuriken Toss - Depands what you levelled on LVL3
Level 5: Nijada
Level 6: Track - now you are in the game. Having amazing damage on tracked target and almost impossible to run away for your prey if alone. Oh and GOLD, lots of GOLD!
Level 7 - 9: Max out Nijada and get level 3 Toss
Level 10: 25% XP talent (Make sure you get all the tomes in game so you are ahead in levels compared to most of their heroes)
Level 15: This talent is fairly subjective. If you are having an upper hand and your damage rocks, get Attack Speed, that thing is crazy! Otherwise for more Durability.
Level 20: Here's where your damage really spikes up. +75 Shuriken Toss damage is absolutely crazy. If you have Tracked 3 heroes and Aghanim sceptre it will deal 515 damage to each hero 2x! Thats pretty much 3090 damage in fight with one ability.
Level 25: Purely optional. If you miss having gold (sacrificing the Level 20 +90 nijada gold steal), then +300 track gold is good way to sit on top of the goldmine. +50% evasion is BIG boon to BH-s survival instincts :P
