      Should I go take the bounty if I'm safelane carry to maximise farm? Also how do I know when to fight or when to farm?

        farm always, fight only when you have to.

          How do I build lone druid safelane when you need to fight?

            Lul cuki thx for your advice but I particularly want to hear what this man has to say

              What do I do as a drow with no support and an aggressive offlane?

              Jacked

                Thx bro for your input. But I'd prefer if OP weighed in instead

                  how do i keep maintaining under 50% winrate

                    This is a joke right

                    Jake Zyrus

                      @diox yes as much as possible without missing the creep xp in lane,True offlanes are heroes who need the most xp bacause of the skills they can provide mid game time.
                      Farm or fight? Depends on your role, fight when near/farm to fight
                      Imagine the clash scenario in advance and ask what is ur purpose (target item/important skill) for you to win that clash

                      Jacked

                        When do I get bloodthorne vs Daedalus on Sven these days?

                        Is deso good on Sven?

                        Echosabre or SNy?

                        Echosabre on Pa is good?

                                i'm actually curious on how well could a NS player process simple information.

                                here's my question;

                                You're an arc warden playing against X hero, so it's around 20 minutes into the game and you finished your standard build (aquila+midas+maelstorm+boots of travel)

                                What are the next 3 items to beat X hero, and how would you use them.

                                each example to be used separate from the other (different matches), other 8 heroes in the same match don't matter

                                X hero:

                                1. Necrophos

                                2. Meepo

                                3. Storm spirit

                                Assume opponent also has standard 20 minute farm and items for that hero.

                                  How to not die more than 10 times as spiritbreaker ?

                                    Necro scythe daedalus mkb/bkb
                                    Meepo daedalus mkb bkb you can get scythe too but then u kinda need to pick him off if hes alone with only 1 meepo.
                                    Storm scythe daedalus mkb/bkb

                                    These item builds are not in order and I've never played arc warden but I think these items would make sense.

                                          Necro: diffusal, bkb, vyse. Maybe orchid into Bloodthorn. Get the jump, bait shroud, dispell shroud, silence.
                                          Meepo: End mjollnir, bkb, bfly, hurricane pyke. If he jumps on you, you pyke his ass. if he insist just activate bkb. the lighting procs + bfly damage and as should be enough to kill the meepo. If he does run you use q to slow the lowest hp meepo and try to kite him.
                                          Storm: Orchid, bkb, vyse, Maybe linkens if he is ahead. Not much to say. Orchid and he is pretty much dead.

                                          The answer of a ns player. Go on. Flagelate me.

                                            U could not make my mom pregnant cos im like one of the oldest members here and you're not my bro.

                                            Getting serious now. Taking into consideration how hard is to farm Aghanim with Chen (he needs different items in the first place like mek), in mid-late when enemies can clear your creeps within 1 sec what you suggest?

                                            - Afk in the jungle to farm scepter up and then push with Dragon and Golem with Granite Aura ? Or its better to take the new ancient one and the one that gives attack speed aura ?

                                            - or just forget creeps and just go for items like pipe/force staff/glimmer and just try to save people ?

                                                X hero:
                                                1. Necrophos
                                                2. Meepo
                                                3. Storm spirit
                                                Assume opponent also has standard 20 minute farm and items for that hero.

                                                1. Probably BKB Huricane Pike and Scythe/Diffusal
                                                2. BKB Mjolnir Daedulus
                                                3. BKB Bloodthorne/Scythe and Pike

                                                                                            but thats the gaming community i guess

                                                                                            Jacked

                                                                                              when someone's not mad, and you ask why he's mad, he gets mad.
                                                                                              when someones calm, and you tell him to stay calm, he gets agitated

                                                                                              HappyDonut

                                                                                                Ill only do the one about necro because iv never player arc, strom and mepo.
                                                                                                Vs necro
                                                                                                Ill go shadow blade, Diffusal Blade (could swap the order i am not sure) upgrade to slive edge or get orchid. Then upgrade items etc.

                                                                                                Shadow blade will allow you to split push safer and get pick off while you farm diffusal. At that point necro will be forced to stick with team or feed ever time he shows.
                                                                                                orchid into Bloodthorn good vs necro and just all around good item even more so on arc.
                                                                                                This allows you to make him useless in team fights without bkb
                                                                                                Still can spilt push so they cant get objectives as easy
                                                                                                And you can pick of most heros that are alone.o
