the unstoppable Axe

July 24, 2012


First, the question why I created this guide. I think I've collected a lot of experience with Axe whether in Dota 1 or in Dota 2. My successes confirm my strategy and I'd like to share my knowledge. :)


Axe is about to know that his damage results from his Counter Helix. For this reason, this has to be leveled as soon as possible. With Berserker's Call the enemies have to attack you and you have to suffer with a probability of 17% of your enemies a Counter Helix. The Ulti at level 6 must only be given the coup de grace.


To quickly get a good farm, you should use to play aggressively and use the counter helix. Here you lose hitpoints quickly. Start with three tangos and and the stone shild for healing and defense.
Vanguard is very important to have enough live as a tank and therefore a good life generation. The mana boots are required to have enough mana for the Berserk Calls and for the Ulti. To gank effectively you need a Dagger.
Blade Mail is another great item in combination with Berserker's Call, because the attacker will receive additional damage. A Heart of Tarrasque and a Linken's Sphere towards the end, be a lot of hit points and the game can be rocked. :D


In the end I would like to point out that each guide can be as good as he wants, without team play is nothing. Thank you for reading my guide. PS: Sorry for my bad English: p
