    He's hard to kill, but that's about it. What else does he do. He was picked recently in a game by Zenith and for the entire game I was questioning myself as to why they picked him. They ran him as a support but the entire game is actual role was kind of obnoxious.

    I personally HATE HIM! Every time I play a carry I usually see a Bane on the other team and I'm scared shitless! His whole skill set is just made to cause the carry to have a living nightmare from the laning phase all the way till end game. He can have no items and still be able to shut down a carry easily.

    Like auto attacks? How about I reduce your dmg by a ton!
    Like to get those last hits? How about I put you to sleep!
    Like living? How about I disable you forever and let you get bursted down.

    His only downfall, he has no AOE. But if he did he would just be busted.

    yeah, pretty much what keeps Bane in check is his lack of AoE. From what I've seen he's very good, especially if the team relies on a single ADC that Bane can mess up easily. His early-game ganks can be crazy as well, with up to 9s of suppression if he chains his sleep with his ult, which is nuts. Also he has various ways he can mess with his opponent in lane. Sleep to force missed LHs and let you deny easily, loltroll with leech nuke, and enfeeble that, if pumped instead of the nuke, can make LHing and trading without spells almost impossible, all for maximum trolling.

    but right now I'm more into Ogre Magi (even if he's the RNG's *****) and Shadow Demon (You're already dead).

    We love picking bane when they have a naix (life stealer) and ban him when we're picking him.

    mmmyep. people underestimate his burst once he hits lvl 6. it only takes one lucky 2x proc to blow someone up, and once he gets aghanim for two rolls of the die (4 every 160s with refresher orb), he's just fun. Having an AoE slow helps along with an ASPD/MS buff for late game support.

    that and he has one of the best personalities I've seen in any MOBA game so far.

    i just had a game using bane yesterday. it was really fun game since opponent team have leoric and barathrum. enfeeble really messed their dps. from what i experienced from the game bane must be in really good position in casting spells. and the casting range of the spells are bit imba too. so then, i'm a fan of Bane Elemental now :3

    Solo mid bane. Get a Scythe + Eul's and then you have more disables than the special olympics.

    Any ideas on how to use tusk? I didn't start with dota 1 so I'm unsure of how to deal with this hero.

    About timber: I find that he's actually quite good as a roam/ganker once you've acquired his ult and 2 mana pots. You find a pushed lane, hook -> AoE burst -> auto attack twice -> send out the bladesaw -> pop the mana pot -> by now ur hook should be up, so bring that buzzsaw back, hook and burst again.

    This usually is better at your short lane since he needs alot of room to play this combo. However, if there are two squishies, lets say a hard carry or a caster early game, you'll do enough damage that a semi competent partner can clean up the rest.

    the issue with timber is that positioning is everything, everything comes down to the use of the hook. You hook well, you win. You don't, then you have almost half the utility of the hero. I feel he doesn't come off well as a tank if there's a stronger str hero on the opposing team since his strength gain is quite poor as well as his armor.


    TL;DR: the bladesaw is the shit

    For Timber, an easy tip is to always click on the tree and not in its direction. If you miscalculate and click in the direction, you have a chance of missing while clicking directly on a tree guarantees you will hit it as Timber will move in range.

    For Tusk, you want to be focusing on ganking and initiating. If you can land you Q easily, launch it and immedietly roll into snow ball. Follow up with a "FALCON PUNCH" and you team should help to finish the target off, if it survives. As for counters against Tusk, if his snowball is giving a lot of trouble, items such as force staff or Euls (recommended) can easily counter it.

    Check out our coverage of Tusk: http://www.onrpg.com/MMO/DOTA-2/news...2-Falcon-Punch

    I'm working on one for Bristleback but it might be a bit delayed due to the exam season.

    Exam time... Will have to hold off on Dota 2 for a while, I was really hoping to finish that Bristleback article before exams but doesn't it look like I will be able to. Wednesday is my first exam, so maybe on Thursday I will finish it.

    Also, I have been delayed on adding some new player information to the OP, once again school has kept me busy. Sorry! I will update it accordingly when I get some breathing room.

    The reason for no swapping in single draft is that it would make random draft pretty much identical.

    And thanks for the encouragement! Can't wait to get back to Dota once I'm done exams, for now the best I can do is watch Dota while doing practice problems.

    Hey there. Sorry for the late reply, it's exam time. :S

    I have updated the OP (opening post) with some suggestions for beginner heroes. This list is still a work in progress and is certain to change over time. I will update it after my exam to include more in-depth information such links to the Wiki for each hero.

    As for the more experienced players or current beginner players, what do you think of the initial list?
