Pudge the DEVOURER (solomid)

August 16, 2012


Hello all!
This is my guide to playing Pudge, Please don't hate me this guide is a work in progress I will update it as often as possible.

So for those who have chosen pudge let us begin:

Pudge is a hero that takes some time to master, his first skill Meat Hook can be hard to land. I would advise that noobie players (less experienced players) not to pick up pudge unless you already have a hardcarry on your team and they will not need to rely on you.

Pros/ cons

-Good Initiator

-Useless if the player has no experience
-Ability to feed badly at the start
-Vulnerable to magic damage
-waste mana due to hook miss= die early

I am not going to go into great detail of pudges skills they are listed above.

This build suites the way I play, it may not suite the way you play, there are alot of other builds that might possibly be better than mine.

Reasons why I chose the skill set:

- Getting decay/rot early lets you slow your enemies (great for early ganks)
-Ability to get a tower kill with just one level in each decay/rot and meat hook.
-Getting two points in meat hook and rot before flesh heap let you gank early and set up kills.
-You should be able to snag at least 2-3 kills with help before level 6 (if you are roaming)
- You will be able to support your team better if you max your rot and hook early.

Key things to remember while playing pudge:
-Always be on the lookout for team ganks as you are likely to get ganked if doing well.
-Always keep an eye on your map, know where everyone is.
-Use the forest for protection, enter the forest before going for a gank
-Always initiate the team fights,
-Use your hook on allies to save them from getting killed.
