Got an invite yesterday, quite a lot of fun.

Bots can deny quite a bit better than people in matchmaking tongue.gif

I like the Night stalker, very fun hero to play. Which items should I buy, and which lanes are best for him?

Hehe if you start to play better people you'll notice the overall skill level, including last hitting, gets better. The more you win the better players you will be placed with and against.

I don't play NS at all but I can give some general advice. NS is often solo mid which allows him to level faster than the heroes in the outer lanes which makes him very effective during the first night. It also allows him to pick which lane to gank during the first night and perhaps get a rune along the way. You should max Void and Hunter in the Night first and get things such as boots, bracers, bottle, and treads in the early game.

I personally feel that NS is one of those heroes that really needs to get a couple of kills early on to stay ahead in levels and gold than the other heroes in the game. I've seen so many Night Stalkers either fail to gank properly during the first night, or never leave their lane and they just wind up being useless. You have to be aggressive and make sure you get a kill or two, don't be afraid to dive towers to make sure it happens but don't be suicidal either. There is definitely a balance of aggression and brains. (Knowing if it is safe to be aggressive against certain heroes)

If you are successful you can plan on getting any number of items such as an Armlet, SnY, MKB, BKB, BFury, Satanic, Heart, and even Aghs if you want. Aghs is pretty nice because it gives a huge amount of vision around the NS during the night.

Hope this helps! smile.gif

Yeah it is possible to Rosh at level 1 but it is pretty unusual. You've got to have the right heroes, hope the enemy doesn't have a ward near Rosh, and hope the enemy doesn't have the brains to check Rosh when all 5 heroes are missing.

Its definitely fun though when you pull it off. smile.gif

Thank you, but seeing as I am quite new, I don't know what the items you are talking about are (abbreviations).

Yeah those 3 heroes are nice for Rosh. Still takes a while though. Veno, and Lich (as well as Syllabear and Lycan in Dota 1) are nice for level 1 Rosh as well.

Pug is fun, definitely a hero I like to play. His ward is so annoying in team fights and can actually get him a couple of kills. blink dagger or force staff are really common on him including items to buff his hp a bit like bracers, power treads, and aghanim's scepter. He has potential to farm a lot but you should really let the carries on your team get the farm if you can. His Nether Blast also works on building which allows you to last hit towers pretty easily. smile.gif
