In the Fields of Endless Carnage, far to the south of Quoidge, a corpulent figure works tirelessly through the night--dismembering, disembowelling, piling up the limbs and viscera of the fallen that the battlefield might be clear by dawn. In this cursed realm, nothing can decay or decompose; no corpse may ever return to the earth from which it sprang, no matter how deep you dig the grave. Flocked by carrion birds who need him to cut their meals into beak-sized chunks, Pudge the Butcher hones his skills with blades that grow sharper the longer he uses them. Swish, swish, thunk. Flesh falls from the bone; tendons and ligaments part like wet paper. And while he always had a taste for the butchery, over the ages, Pudge has developed a taste for its byproduct as well. Starting with a gobbet of muscle here, a sip of blood there...before long he was thrusting his jaws deep into the toughest of torsos, like a dog gnawing at rags. Even those who are beyond fearing the Reaper, fear the Butcher.
Thanks for reading my first guide which still needs a lot of work. Pudge is one my favorite heroes to play, he requires a high skill level and it's fun roaming around the map ganking.
Pudge can be the bane of your existence if in the hands of a competent player. Pudge has strong mid presence and an extremely dangerous ganker due to his hook. In this guide I have listed a build and skill sequence for both mid and side lanes. I usually only use the master hook skill sequence, but I wanted to list a rot chasing skill sequence since newer players can use this in case they don't want to depend on hook.
WARNING: Do not pick this hero if you are new to the DOTA world. You will do horrible and your team will hate you and leave negative feedback.
Arcane Boots or Phase Boots - If you are having mana issues picking up Arcane boots should solve all your problems. If you have a bottle and that has been enough to sustain your mana pool you can pick up phase boots for chasing and damage.
Hood of Defiance - The absolute greatest item for Pudge. It provides regen and a great amount of magic resistance.
Blink Dagger - Makes you less dependent on your hook so it should be much easier to gank. This also provides much needed mobility for roaming and ganking.
Boots of Travel - Always a good pick up if you have decent farm, be anywhere and everywhere!
Aghanim's Scepter - I am sometimes hesitant about picking this up because you are hoping that you aren't getting CC'd whenever you ult. If the other team doesn't have that much CC then this is a great item to pick up. It provides great stats and the boost to ult is incredible. If you are low health you can even ult a creep in the jungle to regen since your ult is such a low cooldown. Great item, just know when to get it.
Heart of Tarrasque - If i have the farm I love to pick up a heart because it makes you incredibly tanky. The regen from heart allows you to spam rot without an issue.
Vanguard - I would pick this up in a few games when the other team has lots of physical damage.
Pipe of Insight - You usually have enough magic armor, but incase you go against Lich you can pick this up for your team.
Have a beta key, but still working away from home at the moment. When I get back I will make some videos showing good hooks, first blooding mid and where to cut trees for ganking.
