really powerful and fun to play. Timbersaw is a tank ganker,has 3 active skills with low cooldown, players wanting to try out Timbersaw should concentrate on upgrading mana pool, mana regen, and HP pool. Bloodstone and Arcane Boots anyone?
Save some mana for later on for ganks/kills.
Tank: High
Chaser: High

Attack Speed: Average
Movement Speed: Average

Other: Low

Pros & Cons

[+] Great hp regen through reactive armor.
[+] Long range escape spell with tree demolish ability.
[+] High Int gain for a strength hero.
[+] Incredible slowing potential like Venomancer. Good at end-game as well.
[+] Very low cooldown spells.
[+] Almost all his damage is Pure.

[-] Requires some items to work.
[-] Weak strength gain for a strength hero.
[-] Low damage abilities.
[-] Low movement speed.
[-] Low starting armor.
[-] Has a lot of skill usage*

High skill usage means, high mana costs. low cooldown timers, and Chakrams per second mana cost both add to this effect.


Early Game
Low base armor; Reactive Armor
So, partnered up and getting kill as many creep per wave as possible.

Mid Game
Participate in a lot of battles and a lot of battles happen. So let's anticipate, with our choice of boots.
*Are you clashing with the enemy a lot and using a lot of mana, you should be buying Arcane Boots.
*If the game looks to be dragging on towards the end-game more, you might want to go the tank route and get Tranquil Boots.

Late Game
Now that you have Bloodstone your mana is sufficient to cast all your abilities multiple times during a battle your team should be starting to finish off the enemies base. You are still effective, but slightly less so. The enemies have more hitpoints, and they're staying behind their tower in their base, after you jumped them every time they exited the base with Timber chain. 1400 range every 4 seconds is no joke.

At the end of the day, you must farm well and gank more. If your team is losing stick together and hunt for them slowly, if not defend at base and wait till they engage. Don't go out to far and they will gank/kill you.

Team Work / Friends / Foes

Get a partner to gank with, like stunners/disable/carry e.g. or you could gank up with your carry partner since that you have slow. Spot a hero or food that is alone to kill. In gank fight spam as much as possible and during gank fight tell your team to target a hero and take them down first. Help your teammates's lane when possible.


Good heroes who benefit to kill your enemies when you use Chakram

Good heroes to help you set up your Chakram

Creeping / Jungling

You could pull creep or jungle to farm extra gold faster. Lure the creep out with the time is going to be another minutes. Stack the creep as much as possible.


As soon you have enough gold to buy your item, get your Courier to pass your items to you. You need to get your [[Arcane Boots] as soon as possible and a magic stick just in case you are dying or lack of mana.

Starting Items

Get some healing items like Tango and Healing Slave and mana regenertaion clarity potion additional heath point item like Gauntlets of Strength and stats to all Circlet. When lane-ing bottom at Radient or top at Dire purchase Boots of Speed as soon you have 450 gold.

Items in Queue
Arcane Boots/ Magic Stick
Magic Wand
As soon you have Arcane Boots go ahead and start ganking and killing.
