"The strong shall eat the weak" 7.12

March 30, 2018


Hey guys! This is actually the first guide I've made, so sorry if I seem unprofessional but please leave suggestions in the comments.
Anyway... this guide is mainly for solo queue PUB matches. And without further ado let's get into it.

Pros and Cons

Troll Warlord is one of my favourite and best played heroes. He can reach amazing levels of attack speed with his passive and ultimate. He's really fast and with right items is a formidable hard carry. And unlike some ( Anti-mage) doesn't take too long to come online.
However Troll is extremely weak to disabled and lacks a reliable fgorm of escape.

Landing Stage

After getting the starting items head to the safe lane and start getting as many last hits as you can. Get a Ring of Protection to reduce the harrass from the offlaner.(Or an Infused Raindrop Infused raindrop if they harrass you with spells]
Play safe and constantly have regen items delivered from base. Try to farm Phase Boots (Extra speed and damage are better than the attack speed given by Power treads) and a Vladmir's Offering as fast as you can and then you're ready to begin the push.

The Push Begins!

Once you've obtained the above items it's time to push. Get one of supports to ganknthe offlaner and once you kill him (or her) push the wave and start hitting the tower. Wait till the enemy uses glyph before you use your ultimate. If enemies appear go into ranged from and keep hitting the tower.
(Its best if you time this at the 10 minute mark as you will have a siege creep to help you).

More Pushing and Roshan

One you've taken down the enemy offlaner teir 1 tower do the same to the mid teir 1. Get help from supports and midlaner to do this. Once the mid teir 1 falls tell your team mates to push the lanes while you sneak in using smoke of deceit to solo Roshan.


Once you've killed Roshan farm a bit more to get Black King Bar and get your team together for a 5-man push. Push down the lane and once the enemy appear to defend pop your bkb and use your ultimate to burst down the most threatening hero on the opposing team. After you win the teamfight push high ground immediately if the enemy has a good defence retreat and farm till you're bib is off cool down and start hitting the tower while your team split pushes. Once the enemy tps in to defend use your bib and tp to another lane and push that.
If you are unable to end the game before the enemy carries are farmed then go for damage items like Daedalus and Monkey King Bar.


This push strat will work better if there is another good split pusher like Nature's Prophet on your team.

And that's the end of the guide. I hope it was helpful. Let me know if there are things wrong with the build or guide in anyway.
Wish y'all all the best in climbing MMR!
