Where falls my shadow, fells my blade.

Hello, This is my guide to the Phantom Assassin. Like most Dota 2 Nubs when I saw a new hero come out I jumped right on to try her "new" version out. As it stands I'm just playing the "normal" way you'd play Her. Currently I am experimenting on different ways to utilize her Talents.
It's pretty standard build setup, but I'll explain why I put points into where for people who can't understand.
Lvl 1 - 8
The reason I put my first point in dagger is because it's your main farming tool especially early game. Also if you lane with a hero who can dish out dmg really fast ie. Jugg you can set up kills for them to talk. Don't worry about getting the kills farming is the name of your game.
Also the first skill I choose to max is dagger because it's a very multifunctional skill. It can help you get a gank, help someone gank, or simply harass.
Some of you may ask why I point a point in blur early in the game. The reason is due to the amount of survival it gives you early game in the lane. The chances of them hitting you like crazy are slim to none. So when they take pot shots either the Poor mans will reduce the dmg to almost nothing or the blur will kick in. It's a good chance at either.
Another important thing is never go for ganks or roam around these levels. Six you may be able to catch a low hp hero in your lane with your warp + ulti, but the risk of losing your farm is too high.
