Early Game

This build on Bloodseeker is a mid-game nuker oriented build. Buying aNull Talisman to start of with give you some good stats and will be built into aDagon later in the game.Tangos are a great starting item as the provide early game regeneration. While in the laning phase, a good tactic for Bloodseeker is to use Bloodrage on a creep you are abut o last hit in order to receive a hefty heal from it. This can also be done on creeps you are denying. Pick upBoots of Speed for chase and escape as well asMagic Wand for regen and stats.


Maxing Bloodrage first is not the typical way to play Bloodseeker. Although an early point is usually taken into Bloodrage due to the laning heal it is rarely maxed. The reason behind maxing the ability is the Dagon. At max level one Dagon blast does 800 damage, this can be amped up by 40% to 1120 damage. A few auto attacks and rupture will kill most targets during the mid-game. Blood Rite is mainly used to prevent enemies with stuns or other disables from preventing Bloodseeker to carry out his combo and therefor is maxed last. Thirst is a great ability providing huge movement speed buffs as well as granting vision of heroes that can be easily dagoned to death. Thirst also disables Bloodseekers max movement speed cap allowing him to move faster than 522 at any given time. Rupture like most other ultimates is leveled up a 6, 11, and 16 and should most always be used right after Blood Rite if you intend to kill.


The build focuses on the mid-game nuking power of theDagon therefor making it one of his core items.Shadow Blade Is a great item since it gives both mobility and a way to sneak up on low health enemies.BKB gives strength, damage, and spell immunity which allows Bloodseeker to stay in fights longer and therefor deal out more nuke damage as Dagon 5 has only a 15 second cooldown.Ethereal Blade gives great agility and an active that deals damage itself and increases your nuke damage from Dagon. This makes your nuking potential still present in the later mid-game and early end-game.Sange and Yasha provides health and movement speed and should only be bought it you have a beyond godlike spree and finished Ethereal Blade since it isn't that helpful.
Heart is a solid item allowing you to pop in and out of fights without having to heal in base. Also it provides loads of health.
Blink Dagger is a replacement for Shadow Blade and should be picked up in games where you know the enemy team is warding or has a gem.

Pros / Cons

-Great mobility.
-Great nuke damage.
-Great heal.
-You can make funny sound effects when you use your abilities.
-Can easily make other team rage.
-Good agility gain
-Poor intelligence gain
-Awful late-game
-No true lockdown


After you get your Dagon just roam around the map checking the jungle and lanes for low health heroes. Thirst will give you vision of any possible targets wherever they may be hiding.
Please have fun with this build.
Disclaimer this build is not for ranked or serious play it should only be used in pubs or lobby games with friends.
