Default Nevermore starting item build?


Considering I have to buy chick, what should my starting items be?

Recently i have been getting 3gg branch, gauntlet (for jango), tango, and clarity

Is the 3gg branch tango into quick bottle better?

What do other SF players start with?

3 gg branches and get bottle in 1-2 min. Why do you buy chicken?

With a courier I would go tango, salve, 3x branch and just get a bottle, stick or boot in whatever order you want.

jango should only be gotten when your farming well, or else its not worth to delay it.

You shouldn't be needing that clarity during the first levels nya. Either more heal since SF is squishy and gets harassed or at least slipper instead of gauntlet for the much needed +3 damage.

But most of the time 2 heals and spam branch.

chick-3 gg branche-circlet-salve

now with chick's reduction in price it's the most interesting starting build for solo SF so far

i dig 3x branch circlet 1x salve chick. 5 to all stats are nice, although u kinda put yourself in a dangerous situation - if u have a hard time early and cant get dat bottle f.e.

items after janggo mb wand, phase/treads etc.

E: i type so slowly :S ninjad

5 branches salve, best gold with leftovers
It limits your upgrading option to mandatory wand, but wand is awesome.

regen chick 2 slipper branch is also acceptable as helps gets you the +7 level 1 damage to help with early CS.

Really though it depends if you are up against a batrider type agression or a BM/invoker type predominately last hit battle.

If you want go boss build just buy 3 gg branches
