Lanaya's templar assassin now i kill you build

farm until lvl 6 is a must! spam your first so they don't harrash you and go for the last hits and denies!at lvl 6 start to give vision to your team with traps in roshan,runes and places that enemy heroes have to pass in order to gank other lanes.when you get phase boots your ganking starts to become easy. put traps in the middle of some lane wait for enemies hero to retreat and your allies to push , snap the trap activate phase boots and kill them. in team fights try to stay behind don't initiate them wait for other heroes to engage and then finish them of (it may sound like ks but it isn't, remember lanaya can easily reduce someone's hp in half with 2 hits).Remember to activate your reflaction before the fight so you have lowest cooldown and even in one on one meld is a must cause it's give you up to 200 extra damage. Don't see meld like a very good escape mechanish as it is. if they follow you you can meld so they think that they lost you but if you meld and they others see you and have skills that is aoe then you are dead. the one chance you have to survive is to meld activate raflaction and then run with mask of madness and phase boots.

Why this build and how to use it

I assume you know the skills for lanaya so i'm going around it. In lanaya i prefer phase boots so i can go near my fleeing opponent and finish it that's the same reason i prefer mask of madness against blink a team fight use the reflaction skill wait for someone to start the fight then open mask of madness and sweep the kills. if someone hits you and break the reflaction meld for a sec hit them and use again your reflactionto kill him.if you are going well on kills and farming i suggest go for a desolator.I think with desolator you can kill anyone on 1vs1.first hit them then meld then hit them again with the desolator's effect on the reflaction and mask of madness and it's over.In case you need extra survivability go for a bkb it gives you some extra damage and immunity to stun and magical damage so it's a good choice.Then in the late game go for daedalus excellent choice for lanaya a hero who already have a massive damage output.if the game progress a little too much go for a butterfly.Keep in mind that lanaya is not so the late game hero so try to end it quick when you get the deadalus.
