Hello, this is my first guide and its about one of in my opinion best mid Heroes in the Game.
My English is not the best but i hope you understand that :D.
The important thing about this guide is that you need to go in the mid lane for this cause it wont be that efficient ive you dont.

Laning Stage

Go to the mid lane and get your bottle as fast as possible, meaning haveing it a 2 minutes. Ive you have a mellee enemy then harass him with rot ive he comes for a last hit, ive your against a range hero try to play safe, of ive hes close enough to your tower hook him into Tower range. Ive you didnt score a kill like this just wait intel you get level 6, hook and kill whoever you are against on in lane ( almost no enemy can stand a level 3 hook with dismember and rot).

Mid Game

Check the rune to fill up your bottle and gank the sidelanes.
Ive the enemys have wards up, then dont be affraid to get a smoke. You shold have your Phaseboots and a almost finished Hood by now (ive your ganks are sucsefull!).
Just keep ganking the lanes so your Teammates can push in piece.

Late game

This is where the big teamfights start. Try to be the initiator with a nice hook dismember combo on the enemys carry. Ive you are able to take out the enemys carry befor the fight starts you pretty mich already won the teamfight --> GG

Pros / Cons


-Really strong early to mid game -Pretty level depended
-Can give your Carry a lots of space to farm -In Ultra Late game not that
-Nice initiator -Any Silecne will f*** Pudge


Hes one of my favorite heroes in the Game and its fun to play him, but ive you play him the first time its not that easy to get nice hooks of, but ive you can hes really fun to play and can help the team alot.
