Dota Rhasta Item Build | Dota Shadow Shaman Item Guide and Strategy

Once a gifted troll witch doctor, young Rhasta was well versed with the secrets of voodoo magic. When the war between the Sentinel and the Scourge began, Rhasta, then a Shadow Hunter, offered his allegiance to the Sentinels to vanquish the Scourge once and for all. While he was gifted as a witch doctor, Rhasta is a genius as a shadow hunter, exceeding his master by mastering the art of summoning multiple serpent wards, binding enemies for a short time and casting elemental lightning to several units.

~ Rhasta, Shadow Shaman Item Builds ~
> Rhasta, Shadow Shaman Starting Item Build <
These items would be your starting items for Rhasta. You need to buy an animal courier(which
would be upgraded later into Flying Courier) so that while roaming you have a deliverer 
of your items. 2 Clarity Potions and Tango of Essifation for mana and HP regeneration while farming 
for your bottle. Mantle of Intelligence and Ironwood Branch for additional Mana and damage.

> Rhasta Pusher Type Item Build <
So you need a bottle first to help Rhasta in his HP and Mana Regeneration while farming
for your Perseverance for faster Regeneration. After getting Perseverance it is advisable to
get Boots of Travel to start teleporting to each lanes at a time and laying Rhasta's Serpent
Wards to destroy towers quickly. It's up to you if you will get Refresher Orb to Cast Serpent
Wards twice on a tower or Aghanims Scepter first if your mana is not sufficient to cast Serpent 
Wards twice. Lastly, to have tankiness and have the enough Mana Points you can have Soul 
Booster or you can probably choose Shiva's Guard.

> Rhasta Killer Type Item Build <
Rhasta needs Empty Bottle badly to spam his spells so that he can get items quickly. Next is to support
your mana needs, you must have Arcane Boots to give you additional spamming ability with the Bottle.
Rhasta must be a roamer/ganker. The Eul's Scepter of Divinity is the right combination for Rhasta's
Serpent Wards. Just cast Cyclone and deploy Serpent Wards on the ground for a sure kill. Still, as a killer,
you need dagger if you Serpent Wards is on cooldown. Aghanims Scepter for your Ultimate. Guinsoo Scythe
of Vyse for your Luxury Item which is helpful in clashes to disable 2 of their heroes.

> Rhasta Support/Roaming Type Item Build <
Again, Empty Bottle for early HP and Mana Regeneration while farming for your Arcane Boots.
Arcane Boots for Rhasta's additional Mana and instant Mana Regeneration. Dagger of Escape to 
initiate gank and Shackle your enemy hero. Aghanims Scepter for stronger Serpent Wards. 
Shiva's Guard for your allies to have bonus armor and the Arctic Blast which helps your team greatly.

> Rhasta Situational Type Item Build <
Magic Stick is helpful for Rhasta especially if quick regeneration is needed.
Bracer for additional HP because as we all know Rhasta is fragile.
Linken's Sphere if you're always targeted even you come late in the clash.

Dota Earthshaker Item Build | Dota Raigor Stonehoof Guide and Strategy

In the barren-lands, tales spoke of tauren sages reaping the essence of dirt. Their consciousness melds with the brown beneath them. The loam becomes the conduit of their mental thought and reality. These warriors were feared for they could summon massive ruptures at their mere whim. So tremendous was their power that their magic leaks out of the earth violently with every spell. Sadly these sages mysteriously faded from the land. When the World Tree was threatened, couriers searched for these mighty ones but found just one. A young adept, Raigor Stonehoof, seeks battle to weave new tales of these shamans.

~ Earthshaker, Raigor Item Builds ~
> Starting Earthshaker, Raigor Stonehoof Item Build <
 This Earthshaker starting build item is for players who are used in spamming skills especially
the Fissure of Raigor. Buy animal courier and later turn it into flying courier and buy empty bottle
to spam your skills and kill your opponent. 2 Clarity Potions while waiting for your empty bottle
and the Mantle of Intelligence for Mana purposes and Ironwood Branch for additional stats.

> Starting Earthshaker, Raigor Stonehoof Item Build 2 <
This build for Earthshaker is for those who have teams and have an ally who has a role to buy
Flying Courier. With this build, Magic Stick would be enough for regen of HP and Mana and
2 Mantle of Intelligence for additional Max Mana Points and 2 Clarity Potion while waiting for your
empty bottle or Arcane Boots to be bought.

> Core Earthshaker, Raigor Stonehoof Items <
Arcane Boots is a vital item for Earthshaker for its additional mana when you and your allies
 need it before a clash so you will not be short on mana when you need it. Raigor is an initiator so
Dagger of Escape is also essential for him to set up the clash and wipe some of them. DoE can also
be used when escaping from ganks. Earthshaker must have the Aghanims Scepter to add damage
with his Echo Slam and eliminate more of the enemy heroes in a clash. Shiva's Guard to add tankiness
to him and Eul's Scepter of Divinity to hex one hero and give you a high percentage to win a clash.

> Optional / Situational Magina Items <
 Empty Bottle if you like spamming skills and good at transporting the bottle with the 
Flying Courier. Buy Power Treads if you think you are short with Mana or HitPoints with 
Earthshaker. Bracers are for additional HP when you feel you are a paper and you have
 bought Arcane Boots instead of Power Treads.

Dota Magina Item Build | Dota Anti-Mage Item Guide and Strategy

Twin sons to the great Prophet, Terrorblade and Magina were blessed with divine powers: Terrorblade granted with an unnatural affinity with life forces; Magina gifted with energy manipulation. Magina's eventual overexposure to the magics gradually augmented his elemental resistances and bestowed him the unique ability to move faster than light itself. Now, broken by Terrorblade's fall to the dark side, Magina answers the Sentinel's call in a desperate bid to redeem his brother. Every bitter strike turns the Scourge's evil essences upon themselves, culminating in a finale that forces his enemy to awaken to the void within and spontaneously implode.

~ Magina Item Builds ~
> Starting Magina, Anti Mage Items <
Quelling blade is a good starting item for Magina for its additional damage to creeps for
easy gold shots early game. It is also for cutting trees when you're stuck accidentally or
for farming in neutral camps. Why Ring of Protection? Vladimir's Offering is an essential
item for Magina especially later in the game and RoP is not available at the side shop so you
if you need to build Ring of Basilus you just need to buy Sobi Mask at the side shop. Tango of
Essifation for regeneration(Be sure to buy Ring of Regeneration next if you have HP problems).

> Killer Magina Item Build <
Power Treads for additional attack speed, stats and movement speed. Vladimir's Offering is
one essential item for Magina, giving him more survivability when killing heroes especially
later in the game where he would have high damage and lifesteal is vital. Battlefury gives alot
of benefits especially for Magina. It gives Mana and HP regen, damage and the Cleave damage
which greatly helps Magina to farm for his luxury item: The Butterfly (Enough said) If the game 
permits, you're last item would probably Radiance which gives immolation and additional damage.

> Killer Magina Item Build 2<
Power Treads for attack speed and Vladmirs Offering for Lifesteal. In this build, Cranium Basher 
is important because of its stun which is helpful when you see someone solo in a lane especially INT
type heroes and boom instant KILL. Manta Style for the Illusion which is a good combination
for the Monkey King Bar's mini stun. 

> Optional / Situational Magina Items <
Black King Bar for spell immunity later in the game for clashes. 
Magic Wand for quick additional HP in clashes (Very helpful item).
Blade Mail for other DPS enemy heroes like Mortred, Phantom Lancer etc.

Dota Traxex Item Build | Dota Drow Ranger Item Guide and Strategy

Traxex was a skilled archer in her oppressive underground homeland, the Underdark, until she grew sick of her kin's evil ways and fled to the surface world. As a part of her resolution, she joined the Sentinel, bringing her excellent marksmanship to the fray. Some of her abilities include stripping magical beings of their voices, and enchanting her arrows with an icy cold. While such powers are valuable, her true origin will never cease to linger around in the judging eyes of  others.

~ Traxex Item Builds ~ 
> Starting Traxex Items <
Why Magic Stick? This is so effective when you have your enemy hero in your lane who are spellcasters
 like Storm Spirit, Nevermore and even Bristleback. You can get instant hp when you wanted to 
especially whenyou are about to die, it will help you to survive. 3 Tango of Essifation for the needed regeneration early game.4 Ironwood Branches is much better than getting Slippers of Agility because 
of the hp and mana bonus. Those branches will be used later to upgrade to Magic Wand.

> Killer Traxex Item Build < 
Traxex doesn't really need those Wraith Bands, just go quickly for Power Treads or Helm of Dominator 
just be safe and avoid being ganked and you will see that you don't need 3 Wraith Bands which others get.  Magic Wand again for a jiffy hp when you need it the most. Lothars Edge is your escape mechanism and 
also to set yourself to kill a hero. Manta Style to give your self a DPS boost which is a great combo for
her skill Markmanship and huge damage. Buriza Da Kyanon for critical, just imagine your illusions and
you do a critical you will be like Naga Siren like hell, even worse.

> Pusher Traxex Item Build < 
Who says that Traxex the Drow Ranger has just only one role which is being a killer? Traxex can be a 
deadly pusher with this pusher item build. Boots of Travel to change lanes after the other. Vanguard to 
help you make a tower dive when needed (Just be careful with the gank). Lothars to escape after pushing 
a lane. Manta Style to get some mirror dudes to help you and deal hell of a damage to the enemy's tower.
Lastly, if the game is still on you can make Mjolnir to give you additional pushing ability especially when
your Manta Style is on cooldown. This build is also has a semi-killer support role.

> Optional / Situational Traxex Items <
 Black King Bar is for heavy nukers that gets in your way. Have one to survive most of the clashes and
ganks. Traxex' weakness is her survivability so be sure  to have one if needed. Blade Mail if someone 
like Mortred is a pain in the ass and you want them to stop attacking for a while and get a chance to
get to them first.

Dota Enchantress Item Build | Dota Aiushtha Item Guide and Strategy

Although all Dryads are Cenarius' daughters, Aiushtha is said to be his first and favorite. Because of her direct relation to him, she has borrowed much of his power. This is demonstrated by her control over the shy Wisps which she uses to heal her allies, and her ability to bring an opponent under the will of the Sentinel. Preferring ranged combat to melee, she fashioned a spear that strikes with more force the further her target is away. Her agility is unmatched, and any opponent attempting to kill her will find she skips ahead of them with surprising ease.

~ Enchantress Item Builds ~ 
> Starting Enchantress Items <
With Enchantress you just need mana regen because of her Nature's Attendants. You need a Magic Stick
early on to help you if you are short on mana and hp. Magic Stick is also to assist you when you want an
instant hp recovery when you're ganked. Those Branches of Ironwood are for additional hp, damage and mana. The Healing Salve is for emergency purposes if your enemies in your lane are heavy nukers.

> Killer Enchantress Item Build < 
Phase Boots for the additional damage and the large movement speed boost which is really a combo for the 5.5 seconds slow of Enchantress' Enchant skill and go for that kill.  The Magic Wand is when you needed hp the most especially for survivability in clashes and ganks. The best item for Enchantress would be Orchids of 
Malevolence which really compliments Enchantress with its additional damage, attack speed, mana regen (for spamming of Impetus) and the Soul Burn skill. 

> Optional / Situational Enchantress Items <
Dagger is to help Enchantress escape and survive in ganks. Be sure to have Black King Bar when there
 are lots of heavy nukers because with the low hp of Enchantress she can't survive with stuns and instant damages. You want to build Vanguard if you feel that you're too soft and find yourself lying dead alot
of times. The additional 250HP and the damage block are a big help for Enchantress. Force Staff is an alternative for Dagger.

Dota Venomancer Item Build | Dota Lesale Deathbringer Guide

For those obsessed with death, poison is a necessary study. However, Lesale went a step too far. He experimented upon himself with various toxins and chemicals so that he could learn the secrets of death. These twisted his mind and mutated his body into a hideous creature which embodies an immense hatred for all things pure. He can strike an enemy with a concentrated shot of poison or even spread a toxic gas throughout an entire area, severely weakening beast and human alike

~ Venomancer Item Builds ~ 
> Starting Venomancer Items <
This build is are used by many players in the tournament. Venomancer Venomous Gale doesnt need to be spammed, just use it wisely. Others go for empty bottle though it's good for him but its advisable not to
to get to make you farm for a boots quickly. You have your Magic Stick to take of your regeneration.
 Just be careful in laning. 

> Killer Venomancer Item Build < 
Why Phaseboots? For the attack damage and walk speed bonus especially if you have slowed your enemy.
Magic Stick is for survivability when you need it and regeneration for mana and hp because you don't
have a bottle. Next, build Vanguard for tankiness to make you hard in clashes and ganks. Sange and Yasha
would probably the next best item for Venomancer it adds HP which you need and the movement speed. 
Lothars Edge for escape and pushing purpose. Radiance for damage. You don't need Butterfly with
Venomancer because his hard enough with the SnY and Vanguard and has an escape mechanism.

> Support Venomancer Item Build <
Urn of Shadows is for your regeneration. You can also heal your allies with the charges from the Urn of Shadows while Mekansm is on cooldown. Mekansm and Khadgar's Pipe of Insight for clash/gank purposes. Guinsoo Scythe of Vyse for DPS hero or if you need to shut down one of enemy's hero so you can focus fire easily on the one you want. If you will pick this support build be sure to put Plague Ward early which so 
much effective in pushing lanes.

> Optional / Situational Venomancer Items <
If you think you really need Empty Bottle get one and spam your Venomous Gale.
Black King Bar for stunners and heavy nukers. You would probably be their target so if needed 
don't hesitate to get one fast. Blade Mail for DPS heroes which really hurts. You can exchange attacks 
with them if you have Blade Mail because you're hard with the items here in this strategy guide.
Linken's Sphere can be an alternative for Black King Bar if you just have few nukers and stunners.

Dota Kunkka Item Build | Dota Admiral Item Guide and Strategy

Of all the allies in the Sentinel's ranks, only one, is known by as many names and is feared in as many lands. Called Capt. CoCo by his mates, Jacksparrow by others, The Legendary Mariner by some, but only a select few know his real name and what it stands for. He can harness the powers of the depths to conjure torrential geysers that blast his enemies into the air. His elegant blade is sworn to the Seas and with each mighty swing it ebbs like the tides. Using a watery form of spacial magic, he can bring you back to your original destination. The Captain now sails towards the Scourge lands, aboard his Phantom vessel boosting the spirits of his comrades with his fabled Rum, paving the way for the victory of the Sentinel. He is Kunkka, Master and Commander of the seven seas.

~ Kunkka Item Builds ~
> Starting Kunkka Items < 
This would probably your starting your items for Kunkka. You won't be needing a bottle because
you will be making Urn of Shadows afterwards and Perseverance for Battle Fury. You'll have
Tidebringer as your friend to give you gold so you won't be needing Torrent as much so we won't
be having a bottle. Be sure to be careful because you will have limited regen with this build.

> Killer Kunkka Item Build < 
Phaseboots for the damage and movement speed. For the attack speed Lothars and Assault Cuirass will take care of it later. Just farm for the mean time. Urn of Shadows for HP and Mana Regen which is for me better than Empty Bottle because you will have Battlefury will only make the bottle useless afterwards. Lothars Edge for escape and set up. Assault Cuirass for defense and at the same time attack speed and lastly if the game permits Buriza for the D-A-M-A-G-E.

> Optional / Situational Kunkka Items <
Vanguard if you're lacking defense especially in clashes and you're always wiped out.
Bottle for if you feel your regeneration from Battlefury and Urn of Shadows is not enough.
Black King Bar if you have a lot of heavy nukers and disabler enemy heroes.
Linken Sphere  can be an alternative for Black King Bar.
