I know very little about DOTA 2, but this is the build a friend of mine highly recommended. This is what he used back in DOTA, and if your teamed up with Viper you're practically unstoppable if you both know what you're doing. The baises of this guide is to provide a high auto attack speed along with powerful DOTS, backed up by survivability. This guide is more of a theory than a guide. So if you wish to try it and leave feed back, that would be awesome!

Pros / Cons

+ High DOT / overall damage
+ High survivability (via items)
+ High attack speed
+ Free Wards
+ Very good pusher

- Low Defense / Health
- No burst damage
- Low base movement speed


You start off withOrb of Venom to add an extra DOT to your auto attack.

Power treads are next, not much needs to be said about these.

Here is where you start getting really good. You want a combo of Shadow blade and Diffusal blade. Shadow Blade adds a major boost to damage and attack speed, but it's active ability is what makes it perfect for Venomancer. 9 second invis, +20% movement, and an extra 150 damage when you break invisibility with an attack. So stealth in and use your Ult + Gale + an auto attack and there is 4 dots on them.
