Hey there, Im Epix and welcome to my guide to the hero Juggernaut, or Yurnero (DoTA 1). This will be a fast and simple guide to this hero, by the end of this guide, you will know how to be awesome and obtain easy rampages as this hero is capable of awesome kill streaks. Juggernaut is a hero best if played in lanes, but I've seen people play this hero in the Mid lane too.
No one has ever seen the face hidden beneath the mask of Yurnero the Juggernaut. It is only speculation that he even has one. For defying a corrupt lord, Yurnero was exiled from the ancient Isle of Masks--a punishment that saved his life. The isle soon after vanished beneath the waves in a night of vengeful magic. He alone remains to carry on the Isle's long Juggernaut tradition, one of ritual and swordplay. The last practitioner of the art, Yurnero's confidence and courage are the result of endless practice; his inventive bladework proves that he has never stopped challenging himself. Still, his motives are as unreadable as his expression. For a hero who has lost everything twice over, he fights as if victory is a foregone conclusion.

Build 1 (Experiment Build)
Starting: You should always start with a set of Tangos,a Healing Salve, a few Iron Branches and a Stout Shield or a Quelling Blade to block some damage or to improve last hits.
Laning Stage: You should get your Threads and rush the Battle Fury, or you could get the Boots of Speed and straight go for Battle Fury.
Next: After Battle Fury, go straight for Aghanim's Scepter and Desolator after the scepter.
Now, Lifesteal is good, why not get Helm Of the Dominator, and later, you can upgrade it to a Satanic for more lifesteal.
After This, The added agility from the Butterfly gives you extra damage and evasion is awesome. And the stuns from the Skull Basher can help deal more damage and stun an enemy when fighting. After the Basher and Butterfly continue with the Desolator,Assault Cuirass, upgrade your lifesteal to Satanic.
After that, Why not kill Roshan and get the Aegis and why not get a Divine Rapier with that?
Build 2 (Scepter Build)
This build is more commonly used than the other build. Start out with the usual things, a set of Tangos, a Healing Salve, a few Iron Branches and either a Quelling Blade or Stout Shield, but instead of going for both Battle Fury and Aghanim's Scepter, you choose either one of them and rush for it during laning stage.
Tip 1: Blade Fury Escape
When Blade Fury, Juggernaut will be magic immune. You can Blade Fury and teleport away
Tip 2: Shadow Blade Battle Fury
Can help attack or also be used for escape

Juggernaut is an aggressive hero and he totally should be used aggressively. Juggernaut deals massive amounts of damage in the early game and with farm, even in late game, but late game his potential starts to fall as his Omnislash deals less damage later in the game. Although this is a powerful hero, with a few items, such as Ghost Scepter, his ultimate will be completely useless.
Also, Juggernaut is and insanely fun hero to play. I've played this hero many many times and I've always had fun playing him. If I could have so much fun, I bet you too can have fun :)
