This is my 1st guide, so feel free to comment. Thanks for your support!
I have won many games with my build, so I hope I can help people learn the awesomeness of Sven. PA is overrated.

Pros / Cons


He is Sven
Doesn't need too many items to be effective early
His ult
AOE stun
High base Str
Average starting armour(yes, I'm Canadian!)
Nice Agi gain for a Str hero
Dont need to spend 4350 for a battlefury


Hi is Sven
Mana starved somewhat early on


Storm Hammer is a single target AOE stun that does 325 magic damage, nuff said.
Use the AOE part to your advantage in teamfights.

Great Cleave Don't get it early because it will push the lane (even if you just last hit like you are supposed to). You won't benefit too much from this early on in teamfights, but do max it 2nd.

Warcry Grants your team bonus armour and MS.
Be smart about when to use this skill early as it does have a long CD.
Use it to chase so you can just land that Hammer.

God's Strength Boosts your damage based on your base damage and Str.
200% bonus damage at lvl 16!!!



You don't have any escape besides your stun, SO CARRY TP!
That is until mid/late game.


Sven's ult increase is based on his Base Damage and Str, so getting Str items are crucial.

Heart of Tarrasque and Satanic are good choices, Abyssal Blade is situational.

Bracers are great cheap items. I don't usually get Drum of Endurance because it will
delay my BKB.

Armlet of Mordiggian is a decent item, especially if you are good at Armlet toggle. Gives you Str, damage and AS.

Helm of Dominator should be a must mid game, gives you survivability in fights. Dominate a creep to stack Neutral and/or Ancients.

Black King Bar is a must for most games for obvious reasons.

Daedalus, so you can do even MORE damage!

Monkey King Bar is good against people who has dodge. Heores who get Butterfly and Heaven's Halberd, and heroes such as Phantom Assassin, Faceless Void and Brewmaster.

Team Work

Farm and kill.

Sven has a stun, use it to gank. Easy kills.
But still need to farm!

You are not the initiator. Most likely you are the carry.
You can use your Storm Hammer to initiate, but DON'T RUSH IN 1ST!
Make sure you have your ult and BKB ready.
