A starting build will consist mainly of 3 Iron Branch
, Stout Shield
and either a Tango
es are gotten at the start to give a small stat boost and can be built into a
will let Centaur Warrunner
tank hits from enemy heroes and creeps.While some may opt for a Quelling Blade
, I feel that it is unneeded as Brad does have a good amount of base damage to last hit with.
or salve can be used to heal up.Brad has a steadily growing amount of strength to give him more hp regen,and does not need too much healing.
Total Cost = 499 Gold
Brad's core will consist of Vanguard
, Magic Wand
,boots and a Hood of Defiance
is built if you have started with a stout shield.This may not be one of the best items on Brad,but the amount of health and regen it gives works wonders for early to mid.
is built from the iron branches that you have in the early stages of the game,offering a burst heal when charged up.
boots are gotten for basic movement speed boost.
Finally, Hood of Defiance
is able to supply you with a good 30% magic resistance which DOES work on the backlash damage of Double Edge
and a 8 health regen per second.
Total Cost = 5359
A core extension of Bradwarden will have Boots of Travel
, Heart of Tarrasque
and Pipe of Insight
Boots of Travel
will give Brad the ability to appear almost everywhere,allowing him to backdoor efficiently with Return
.It also gives Brad top tier movement speed.
Heart of Tarrasque
is a no-brainer for Brad.While it makes you extremely beefy and able to regen a huge amount of health within a few seconds,it makes you a less attractive target nullifying the whole point of Return
Pipe of Insight
can be easily built from the previous Hood of Defiance
,with a fun active effect of granting 400 damage block from magic.
Total Cost = 11628
Some of you may be wondering,why is Blink Dagger
situational?Ever since Brad received his new ultimate,I realised that blink dagger is now not as needed as before.However it is still viable if your enemies consist of fast runners such as Weaver
is only gotten if you are 100% sure enemies think of you as a huge threat and WILL
target you,else don't get it as it makes enemies less likely to attack you.
and Manta Style
are snowball items on Brad.These two items are only really available when you get a good start and keep killing through ganks.As of such,they can't really be considered core items,but if you get a good start,go ahead and pick up Radiance
before Manta Style
should be picked up when you somehow have 4-5 melees on your team,or else let someone else like Bounty Hunter
,lycanthrope or Ursa
Armlet of Mordiggian
can be picked up by Brad,giving him extra strength into Return
and damage for basic attacks.It can also offer survivability if one knows how to 'abuse' the instant health gain.
is also a very good item,offering a burst of strength and more viable than getting a second heart.The lifesteal AND burst lifesteal will let Centaur stay in the fight longer.
To start this list off will be Black King Bar
.Obvious as it is,Brad's job is to take damage and soak up as much as possible in a teamfight.By popping Black King Bar
in a fight,enemies will start to target other enemies.
is far worst than Black King Bar
on this list.This is mostly due to the fact that Blink Dagger
is a far better gap closing skill on Centaur,costing 2150 gold compared to shadow blade's 3000 gold cost,and the possibility of getting countered by a gem,dust or sentry ward.You are able to gain movement speed with your ultimate as well which makes this item COMPLETELY useless.
is absolubely unviable for Brad.Let the carry get one and not you.This also goes for items like Daedalus
and the like.
