I has been half a year since I last wrote a guide, mainly because there are many good guides out there. Recently, I played with my friend on DotA Vanilla, he pointed out that there are no up-to-date Terrorblade guides. Mostly still contain his Zeal ability which is long gone, being replaced by the current Conjure Image.
Credits go to the owner of this picture!
- High movement speed
- Have a ranged attack
- Massive agility gain of 3.2/level
- A good timed Sunder can be game-breaking
- Relatively low STR gain
- Pathetic damage without Metamorphosis (early/mid)
- No stun/AoE spells
- Bad usage of ulti can kill yourself.
Like all melee carries, you need Quelling Blade. Although you are semi-melee, it doesn't matter much as you won't be using your ranged form unless you're ganking which then Quelling Blade will be useless. Iron Branches are for the Magic Wand and the early stats can provide some good survival and damage.
Carry - The role that is the best for Terrorblade. Since he gets relatively strong and packs a punch, he should always be played as a carry. He is, probably one of the best carries around with a minor disable, both a melee and a ranged attack and a chance to regain back a proportion of his health.
Pusher - Although he can be a pusher with his high damage and mirror images, he doesn't fit this role very well since he needs more images or AoE spells to be truly effective. If you're assuming this role, it is better to get a Necromonicon and Manta Style and if possible, Maelstrom
Mid Lane - He is a relatively good mid lane, but I have barely played him as such as my teammates often picked better middle heroes. WILL UPDATE THIS.
Dazzle is a good ally to have throughout the game. His Shallow Grave can just save you, especially early on when you're squishy. His Weave will allow you to hit harder while you get an bonus to the armor. His Shadow Wave will allow you a bonus to health and allow you extra damage when you surround your enemies.
Same reasons as Dazzle. Omniknight is a good supporter to have, especially before your Black King Bar since his Repel grants your magic immunity. His heal and Guardian Angel can also come in handy.
As said, you have low mana in the early stages. One gank can drain you of all your mana. This is where these two comes in handy by giving you the mana you require. Not only that, these two can really harass hard. A good teamwork will ensure a successful First Blood.
These guys are fairly easy to kill, as long as you don't get Hex before your Sunder. A good player will wait until they think you might Sunder and Hex you, making you instantly useless and the odds are you'll die if this happens.
You need mana to function and you have a fairly weak INT gain so these people will steal you of what precious little you have, then proceed to killing you.
These things all share one thing in common. Silence. As we know, you rely hravily on your Metamorphosis to get the damage required to kill someone early on and mid. It won't matter it you manage to pop your Metamorphosis before they silence you, but you should still be wary of these people.
Invisibility - This is your rune. You can always go out behind your enemy, activate Metamorphosis and bomb them.
Haste - Nothing much to say about this. You have good movement speed and a ranged attack. Better to leave this for others.
Illusion - Only grab this if you're going for a gank within the next few seconds. Preferbly activate Metamorphosis before grabbing it. Depending on situational, this might or might not be your rune.
Double Damage - Same as illusion rune. Only take this if you're going for a gank. DD Rune + Metamorphosis = Gay anounts of damage.
Regeneration - Take only when required.
- Get a replay
- Wait patiently for Terrorblade to be released.
- Update this constantly.
- I think I need music for this.
Well, this is rather a slip shot work, so I will spare more time improving it with images. Don't need to worry as all information is there. Credits go to all those guides who have helped me in PlayDota.com and Nubtrain and Dr. Dre for their guide.
Let's all hope and pray Terrorblade will be out soon!
