Hi guys my name is Felix. I have been playing Dota2 for 2.7 years (If I'm not wrong) and you can find me on Instagram or Twitter (@felix_denz).
This is my eight guide here, so i expect my elders to give me comments and help me fix my mistakes. If there is a sameness with other's guide, it is a pure coincidental and don't sue me for it.
It's said that a centaur's road is paved with the corpses of the fallen. For the one called Warrunner, it has been a long road indeed. To outsiders, the four-legged clans of Druud are often mistaken for simple, brutish creatures. Their language has no written form; their culture lacks pictographic traditions, structured music, formalized religion. For centaurs, combat is the perfect articulation of thought, the highest expression of self. If killing is an art among centaurs, then Bradwarden the Warrunner is their greatest artist. He rose to dominance on the proving grounds of Omexe, an ancient arena where centaur clans have for millennia gathered to perform their gladiatorial rights. As his fame spread, spectators came from far and wide to see the great centaur in action. Always the first to step into the arena, and the last to leave, he composes a masterpiece in each guttering spray, each thrust of blood-slickened blade-length. It is the poetry of blood on steel, flung in complex patterns across the pale sands of the killing floor.
Warrunner defeated warrior after warrior, until the arena boomed with the cheering of his name, and he found himself alone, the uncontested champion of his kind. The great belt of Omexe was bestowed, wrapped around his broad torso, but in his victory, the death-artist found only emptiness. For what is a warrior without a challenge? The great centaur galloped out of Omexe that day with a new goal. To his people, Warrunner is the greatest warrior to ever step into the arena. Now he has set out to prove he is the greatest fighter who has ever lived.
Bradwarden, the Centaur Warrunner , formally Centaur Warchief, is the leader of the mighty Centaur Clans. They ruled the world 2530 years ago, and all spellcasters, invokers, creatures, even humans fell in their terror. Naww jokes.
Centaur Warrunner is a hero built to fit the role as a tank. Often played in the offlane, for the fast leveling, and able to tank most hits thanks to the Return.
This hero is often played as initiator and tanker, and I will explain a little bit about him in this guide.
In this guide I will explain about:
(*)Pros and Cons
(*)When and When Not To
(*)Friends and Foes
(*)One of the tankiest hero in the game.
(*)High health gain.
(*) Return hurts the enemy back.
(*)Not so mana dependant.
(*)Stomps like rock with that AOE stun.
(*)Low mana pool.
(*)Low right-click potential.
(*) Double Edge hurts you back.
(*)Being too tanky sometimes makes you forget to go back when being ganked ==a
Pick Centaur Warrunner if:
(*)You need an offlaner.
(*)You have no tank heroes.
(*)You need a setup for your skills.
(*)Your enemy safe lane heroes is a good matchup with you.
(*)Your enemy heroes are squishy.
(*)You want to feel like a boss when you pass through them ( Stampede ) XD
Don't pick Centaur Warrunner if:
(*)You already have an offlaner like Clockwerk or Tidehunter.
(*)You have no supports or carries.
(*)Your team doesn't need setups for teamfights.
(*)The enemy team is as tanky as you.
(*)You are bad with both Blink Dagger and Force Staff
(*)Your enemy has Lifestealer. Please don't, it's just disaster.
I WILL NOT EXPLAIN ABOUT THE SKILLS AS YOU CAN SEE THEM IN THE DOTAFIRE DATABASE.
Your basic regeneration item. You will be needing these since you are likely to get harrassed or ganked on the offlane.
If you are going offlane, take that Return at level one. You need to survive from the enemy's harrassments. Especially heroes like Lina or Viper with pretty long range. But, if you have partners, you can go take that Hoof Stomp at level 1, to secure early kills. You need to have at least 1 point on every skills, and then first focus on Hoof Stomp. The main reason I didn't focus on Double Edge, is you are still not as tanky as you will be in the early games. Getting extra stun duration is better than more damage dealt to yourself. On level 6 your build will be 3-1-1-1.
The next step is still on the lane, cause you are the most effective when you hit both 4 points on Hoof Stomp and Double Edge. So keep farming till you get level 9. Once everyone hits level 6, early ganks and aggresive gameplays will start. You will already have your Tranquil Boots and Hood of Defiance or Vanguard, at least. You can start tanking for your teammates now. Don't go in too deep to the enemy's tower. You are still not tanky enough. On level 11 your build will be 4-4-1-2.
Now, you will have Tranquil Boots, Hood of Defiance or Vanguard, and Blink Dagger. This is when you start play aggresive. Blink -> stun them all! Kill those squishy carries. Build Blade Mail to counter those pesky right clickers. Initiate with Stampede and Blink Dagger. Spread chaos!! MWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAHH!!!!!!!!!!!! Am I too carried away? Well, once you have one of your luxury items, you are all good. Go Pipe of Insight if you are fighting magic nukers, and go shiva guard and Blade Mail to deal with those right clickers. On level 16 your build will be 4-4-4-3.
ALWAYS TAKE YOUR ULTIMATE SKILL WHENEVER YOU CAN, AND ALWAYS USE IT TO SAVE YOUR ALLIES. DO A GOOD DEED AND THY SHALL BE REPAID. (was it like that?)
Centaur Warrunner is very mana-poor and these heroes can help him!
