Necrolyte Pub Build

May 13, 2013

Post-build Information

This build is NOT for tournaments and captains mode. this is purely for all pick mode and pub games.

Play styles:
-Early: Kill when there is an opportunity. Otherwise play safe and farm hard (even though you are naturally aggressive with heart stopper aura).
-Mid: Farm till you get your radiance, you can jungle easily if your lanes are already pushed. After radiance, start participating in team fights and get kills.
-Late: Split push and gank/participate in team fights whenever you can.

-Heavy damage
-Tank destroyer
-Good lane presence with heartstopper aura (early game)
-Kill *******

-Farm dependant
-No escape mechanism (but its ok because THIS WILL RAPE YOUR OPPONENTS)
-requires a good early game
-People might think you are supporting but you ARE NOT

Early Phase

At the start of the game, buy two sets of tangos, magic stick, 2 iron branches and a salve.

What to do(in note form for EASY READING):
-lane with a harasser (e.g. veno, wd, axe, anyone with spammable spells or long range). they will help you tell the enemies to f*** off while you farm super hard.
-take every single creep if possible. rushing midas and BoT is the key to early game success.
-Since you will not be playing support role, DO NOT GET WARDS. state this at the hero picking phase so that people don't rage at you during the game.

After getting midas, farm boots of travel and start split pushing everywhere.

Mid Phase

After your BoT and midas, rush a radiance ASAP. After getting radiance, you should be able to hit relatively hard (assuming that your team didn't feed) but you are still pretty damn soft. This is why you get a heart as the next item. After getting a heart, you should almost be indestructable. With constant spamming death pulse with radiance stacking heartstopper aura. Assuming a support with 1500 hp at around 30 mins, every second you stand next to him/her you are doing 65 damage per second. that might not be alot, but a average team fight lasts from 10-20 seconds. with spamming pulses and your ultimate, you can kill anyone. Since you deal more aoe damage in team fights (you can still pick people off individually with your ultimate), you can kill 3 1500hp heroes in 10 seconds!

Late Game

You won't be able to out-carry real carries (such as drow, fv etc) so you are basically there to soak up damage & deal damage.

Things to do:
-Buy escape items such as shadowblade,blink dagger and force staff.
-For more tankability, buy blade mail, shivas, anghanims (easier kills too)
-For more disables, get hex, euls.

You should consider getting the items listed above AFTER YOUR CORE BUILD. BoT, MIDAS, HEART AND RADIANCE IS A MUST. later on, you can sell your midas for other useful items such as veil of discord (for more aoe presence) or orchid malevolence for shutting down individuals. if you have no more options and you just want to troll. get a dagon (dagon, Q and ult can kill people easily).
