I definately disagree with building a full wand first, you need slippers and wraith bands to last hit properly. If you're laning against someone with spammable spells, just a magic stick should suffice.

I understand your glass cannon concept, sniper doesn't really need too much survivability although some sort of escape mechanism is required unless you want to huddle with your team the whole game (which is bad). For this i strongly recommend a shadow blade, as it ties in with your damage + attack speed whilst also giving added mobility.

I would also take a desolater if you're going full damage. There really is no other option.

Early wand is situational. If ur laning against a sure or a shadow demon. Wand is great, its litterally the best item in the game, but again. Rushing it is only cost effective sometimes.

Other than that this guide makes 0 sense whatso ever. I only commented cuz I dont like people bashing my wand.

Wand First, rotflol.
Guys can you explain why it's a never ever first item.

My Explanation:
You will only have about 30 hp and 30 mp a minute and last time I checked sniper isn't a spam caster. You will spend about half the game taking trips to the fountain.

Lvl 10 Headshot lololol 100 gpm sniper

Void Stone -_- lol

How exactly would sniper be annoying is he can only deal 40 damage a shot, because of 0 headshot levels.

Why Mask of Madness? You die really fast, and Mask of Madness will make you die even faster :/

early wand? meh. no shadow blade? meh. an early shrapnel?! MEH! most sniper players even pros max headshot and take aim first as take aim can be a good harras too. also shrapnel makes you hunger for mana early to mid game so its bad. you may not have enough mana for assassinate as it has a high mana cost
