I totally agree with Beder.... i started DOTA 2 with OD and he rocked!! bt now Sanity's Eclipse has become a joke! at least the cool down on that ult should be reduced...

HE DEFINITELY NEEDS A BUFF.... maybe add some armor on the bloke... cz he's so damn squishy and gets picked on VERY EASILY!!

Is there a way we can suggest things like these to ICEFROG?

Right Now OD Needs a Justified Buff...... If Not sooner or later it will be outphased by newer heroes that are coming like ember, phoenix and a lot more..

problem with going astral mode.. is that if you go mid.. your chances of ganking is 0 (zero)
since u dont have any dps build up for that,
secondly your opponent will probably gank since lanning with u is inconvenient then it will make other lanes harder since you only have astral meaning u teleporting on other lanes to help on gank will do no good or just be waste of time.....

what OD needs is a good team that will carry OD throughout the game, until OD can secure items..
as much as possible be invisible throughout the game... which is so hard to do especially when they have invi heroes aka (nerub, bh, clinks, slark)

Last of all.. OD's Ult needs a BUFF..... it barely damages most heroes nowadays because of these updates on maps, they also tweak most of the heroes.. leaving OD in a bad spot for his ULT..

I understand a lot of players will say OD is OP when late.. but normally OD is being carried by his team so that he can get items, not necessarily OD is carrying the game...

If u want to learn OD.. you need to learn to die alot ( LIKE ALOT ALOT) and you will realize that OD is weak right now and needs a buff....

Im a devoted OD player and right now it has become really hard to play OD in high level (20+) in DOTA2....

because of items and buffs that has been added on certains players.
but just keep hoping the will finally BUFF the OD sooner or Later.

Why not max your astral in level 7 ?Also your orb in early levels is pretty weak you should get it on level 10.To be honest Skadi isnt bad.I think it doesnt stack but I am not sure.
Also your late game isnt unbeatable.OD gets countered by bkb.Even if you are a 6 slot OD you dont profit from any of your skills.

Yeah I'm not sure as to why you put Skadi in core. It's so expensive and does not stack with Arcane Orb. Rod of Atos is a better pickup if you need health in the mid game and its usually the item I go for before sheep stick after force staff.

Because you list such highly expensive items you should probably also explain that you will be largely missing from engagements for the first 20+ minutes of the game so you can farm. OD is great when he gets to a certain farm level. (For me it's Treads, force staff, Rod of Atos at minimum, but I try to get sheep stick too). You just won't get there reliably unless you skip engagements. It's because of this that you should only pick OD if your team has good midgame heroes and can take care of themselves, and your opponents are not using a pushing strategy.

Skadi needs to come after sheep at least. Atos isn't really a good luxury it's a mid-game replacement for force staff. Agh's is a mistake. BKB is missing from core.

I also think you need to max aura at 7/8/9 at the latest.

Wow Eye of Skadi as a core?Why,if your Arcane Orb is already a orb?
