    Just got the offering items, pretty decent exchange I think.

    I have rediscovered Drow Ranger. Can't believe I avoided playing her. Nothing but easy wins with her, except obviously stomp games where my team goes 1-35 in first 15 minutes, other than that it's win-win. Also, seeing how many builds are saying you to get Shadow Blade, I honestly feel it is a huge waste of resources. Instead of Shadow Blade you can rather build Helm of Dominator and Crystalis and you will be hit like a ****ing truck even early game. Engaging without Shadow Blade might be a little harder, but the engagement does not make it OK to spend 3000 gold on an item which can easily be countered and made useless by Dust (180 gold for 2 uses) and Sentry Wards (2 for 200 gold).

    Just go Power Treads > Helm of Dominator (so you can switch to semi-jungle/full jungle farming if lane very hard and farm is low, also to be able to exchange more damage and survive easier + start stacking those ancient camps by yourself) > Crystalis (pretty much the point where you just become a killiing machine)

    The rest is really up to what enemies you are facing. Black King Bar would be recommended but if there aren't many stuns on enemy team I don't see why you should get, then better go for Satanic immediately or Butterfly if you know your team can cover your ass.

    EDIT: This is how Drow Ranger looks like. No, that loss doesn't count because the game ended at 15 minutes, Sniper mid was 1/10 and top lane was 0/8 together. All the others were decent games, good chances for both teams.

    Yes, that is a great build. I'm not a big fan of Lothars on Drow either. I like getting an early manta on her as well, I love the extra survivability and move speed.

    Lost another game with Drow but only because of dumbasses again. 25 minute game with 2 feeders, Io and Slardar, 0/16 and 1/23 accordingly. Other than troll games like these my Drow run has been flawless which makes it 13 wins in a row.
    Made my own build I play every game.

    Congratulations!

    On another note, hoping to get my ranking up more. Got it up 200 points 2 weeks ago, and this week it went down about 120. On the bright side, it's slowly climbing...

    I managed to top 10 with random pubs too. We were just short of 20 million damage in the 2.5k ingot rank. I don't think it's that hard anymore since people don't really care about highest score, just enough to get the max number of tokens.
