Slardar the deep one

Hello, this is a short guide how to play Slardar. This hero requires skill and getting use to, it not easy poping ulti, then medalion, then sprint then stun, then armlet then black king bar and do it in the right sequance... First of all you must understand Slardar is heavy frontliner that means your job is to nuke out targets like AXE (BALANAR, Bloodseeker and so on) with medalion and your ulti on him he will regrent using his taunt. Timing your AOE stun is very vital to entire team , when huge team fight erupts use to let your team mates get the upper hand and counter attack, remember this can be a table turner in team fights, try not to miss and dont go to enemy team stun and then sprint out, you will be countered and team wont be able to help you. Sprint another good ability to gank or run away , but remember everything comes with a price you must time it well or it can be devastating... I find sprint a very good skill to nuke carrys with auto slow like traxxex or viper, pop sprint before you enter the fight not after... Ulti , try to pop it before the fight starts , you can use it on 2 targets before the debuff goes away from them, and use ulti + medalion on target the you mainly go to, keep in mind that the target will have - 22 armor, really effective against tank coz they usually are big chunk of meat with huge HP and low armor.... Also your ulti is PAIN in the back for stealth carry's like rikimaru, bounty hunter, weaver and people who buy shadow blade and think they can get away from you. Finally items, I see a lot of people buying early game URN, its a good item but in my opinion its over rated, sure you get useful stats and its great to finish off running targets but still in my opinion not so useful as medalion for many reasons, also price are nearly the same... Vladimir or Mask of madness , I prefer Vladimir because it gives you dmg and armor and most important life steal to team which is important in end game team fights when you pop up black king bar... Slardar is a game changer hero and really important in end game where he really shines... Sorry for long text, thank you for reading this text and please rate and leave a comment on what you think...
P.S Dont go in same lane with other ranged carry like sniper, it will be difficult for you to last hit and share gold, you wont be able farm up, so I suggest ask a support to come with you. Let the deep ones guide you...
