Pub stompin' Drow Ranger

August 19, 2012

Laning Phase

Your main focus is to last hit and the slippers and branches are very helpful for that. You should focus on getting the 2 wraith bands asap and get those courier'd to you. If possible, try harassing your laning opponent by orb walking so you and your team gets an advantage. As soon as you reach level 6 (or get treads, which ever ones first) gank one of the side lanes.

Mid game

By now you should have your two wraith bands, power treads set on agility and a shadow blade (or at least main components of it). Remember to continue ganking and try feed of their supports/casters. You can't pub stomp without repeatedly ganking the enemy =P

Personally i don't build lifesteal on drow, although i've noticed that hp is always a problem so make sure you get some sort of health regen (such as a hood)if not building lifesteal.

Late game

If you are playing a true pub game, your score should be something around 17-2-5.
Wraith bands can be sold for space and you should have : Treads, Shadow blade, Crystalys (or Daedelus)and other damage/survivability items.

It should be easy for you to siege unguarded towers whilst you wicked solo push as the rest of your incompetent team runs around still trying to get last hits. The enemy carry you should have shut down, leaving the game an easy win.


Drow Ranger is a great hero for new players trying out the carry role. Advanced players can easily win pub games with her due to the massive physical dps she can output early game.

If you liked this guide, please vote/thumbs up or whatever you're meant to do. This is my first guide btw =)

Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.
