They call me the butcha'

I decided this guide won't be very in-depth, I can't teach you how to hook well or how to get rampages with this build, what I can tell you though is how to confidently use this build and be able to be an absolute BEAST by endgame.
Creeping / Jungling
Generally, there will be no jungling with Pudge. Unless you're passing a stacked ancient camp and it's late game and your back hurts from the carrying of the team you're doing, there will be NO jungling. However, laning is different. When creeps first spawn, try to creep block. In the above build, it is shown rot will be gotten at level 1, this is because at level 1 Pudge does around 54 damage, which won't always let you get those all important last hits like tiny or TP can.
Generally, its preferable to lane with a hero who has a stun. Friends of the butcher include Sven, Windranger, and Lion. Make sure you don't go against silencers however, such as Drow Ranger, Bloodcyka, and Riki, of course all of these heroes have their weaknesses and can be beaten in lane.
