Slark's Lore

Little known to the inhabitants of the dry world, Dark Reef is a sunken prison where the worst of the sea-bred are sent for crimes against their fellows. It is a razor barbed warren full of murderous slithereen, treacherous Deep Ones, sociopathic meranths. In this dim labyrinth, patrolled by eels and guarded by enormous anemones, only the vicious survive. Pitched into Dark Reef for crimes unknown, Slark spent half a lifetime without kin or kindness, trusting no one, surviving through a combination of stealth and ruthlessness, keeping his thoughts and his plans to himself. When the infamous Dark Reef Dozen plotted their ill-fated breakout, they kept their plans a perfect secret, murdering anyone who could have put the pieces together–but somehow Slark discovered their scheme and made a place for himself in it. Ten of the Dozen died in the escape attempt, and two were captured, hauled back to Dark Reef, then executed for the entertainment of their fellow inmates. But Slark, the unsung thirteenth, used the commotion as cover and slipped away, never to be caught. Now a furtive resident of the carnivorous mangrove scrub that grips the southern reach of Shadeshore, Slark remains the only successful escapee from Dark Reef.

I also think that Vanguard isn't a good item on him. I always buy a Poor Man's Shield, since you have excellent survivability and the enemy won't usually have enough time to react, as Big_toast said.
Also, if you're against a nuker, I think that a Hood of Defiance or even a Cloak could be what you're looking for, since you need magic resistance. By buying a Sange (if you're going to build a Sange & Yasha), you'll have more HP, which can help against those nukers if used with one of the items I mentioned before.
Otherwise, let the support buy a Pipe for you and your team.

I typically get Vanguard due to my unconventional playstyle, I typically just pounce on them, autoattack and let essence shift do the rest of the work for me, it works just fine for me.

Quoted:

So many people right now are so bad with slark, insta picking him and not knowing how to play him. And the 43% win rate shows that

Also am I the only one who thinks that vanguard is a bad item on slark? I mean its so expensive and your ult passive should be all the regen you need so the hp regen per sec is kind of wasted. Poor man shield is alot better on him as a first item IMO


Yep.Its right but still there are those games when you're facing Lion/ Lina/some nuker.Vanguard really precious there.
