The OP PA Build

November 28, 2014


First of all this build is highly situational and requires some experience with PA and actual game knowledge. I testet this build and it worked very well for me but i should say that PA is my favorite and best hero.

You should play this build when:
-you have an omniknight on your team
-you dont need a bkb
-if the enemy team has a silencer or skywrath mage
-you dont want to rely completly on your crits

You should play this build when:
-you dont have the gameknowledge to do so
-you need a bkb
-The enemy team has lots of aoe dmg

Pros / Cons

+you dont rely on your crits
+you will have lots of armor
+much hp thanks to skadi
+no one can run away
+you can dispell silence with manta
+you can push with manta
+really good attack speed

-you need a lot of farm
-you dont have bkb
-illusion get destroyed by aoe
-mkb counters butterfly and blur
-you wont have a farming item
-crits wont be that powerful


Vladmir's Offering/Ring of Basilius

Ring of Basilius allows you to spam stiffling dagger in lane so you can lasthit over. You can also build Helm of the Dominator but you have Basilius anyway so you can build it into Vlads. When you still wanna go Helm of the Dominator then please use the active to stack camps or to scout out roshan.

Manta Style

Manta is rly good aginst silencer and skywrath because you can dispell the silence and skywraths ulti wont do that much dmg with your illusions. Manta illusions can crit as well and manta offers movement speed and stats.Since you are melee you only have 35 seconds cooldown.

Eye of Skadi

This item is so good in so many ways, first of all it comes with tons of hp, second it gives you a crazy slow and nobody can run away from you at all, not even with forcestaff cause you have your dagger which slows again. And last you will have tons of agility with manta and skadi so your illusions will do a good amount of dmg.


Butterfly offers tons of agility and will increase your movementspeed even more with its active and on top of that the evasion stacks with blur.


Stifling Dagger

Stifling Dagger offers a great slow and you can lasthit with it over a long range if the enemy got an aggresive lane it also comes with an insane spammable slow which is great.

Phantom Strike

Phantom Strike is a great way of escape or initiation on a really low cooldown.
Remember that you can use it on everything witout magic immunity and it increases your attack speed as well.


I think the best thing about this skill is that you wont appear on the minimap because the evasion gets countered by mkb or hex but the evasion is great in lane and will force mkbs.

Coup de Grace

Offers insane crits which work with illusions and you got alot of attack speed so prepare for lots of blood


As told above this build is highly situational so dont play it every time and expect to win your games.
This is my first build on Dotafire and english isnt my native language so feel free to comment about spelling mistakes and other things
