Hello DotaFire this is my first guide and i hope you enjoy.
Slark is a hero who can be gank very early on in the game with great DPS with his essence shift. His leap and dark pact used together can spell the end for most fleshy heroes and can easily pick off heroes one by one.
My personal choice for Slark is that pounce is the best ability to level up. with the 8 second cool-down that level 4 bring, this ability becomes a good escape and ganking mechanism. Essence shift is leveled up second because when you are ganking your base agility is not very high giving you less ability to get in there and get out. and finally dark pact for its high damage and spammability added with Slarks ult makes him a force to be reckoned with.
Slark's items can go in any way mainly though it ends up with what is happening with the out come of the game. Two necessary items for a Slark are arcane boots and a vanguard this is because if you try and harass or gain early ganks you are going to find your self stuck with no mana and no escape. Arcane boots makes sure you can always be at your highest potential in the times of a gank by allowing you to jump and obliterate the opposing force but still have enough mana to escape afterwards. Vanguard gives more hp what for early games can keep you alive long enough to get to a hidden place and heal through your shadow dance's passive this is also helped through the hp regen it gives making sure you are never low on hp
Slark is a easily overpowered character if played properly an can be used to shut down carries early game. the early ability to pull off successful ganks to unsuspecting farmers can make Slark easily one of the most annoying characters to play against but over all he is a fun character to play and if you see Lord Herobrine on dota 2 then say hi and ill say hi back. Any recommendations are welcome and please try and remember this is my first guide and i understand if it isn't all that good Thank you all and goodbye
