Unless I'm wrong, hp removal can kill, but it turn to magic damage if it is going to kill so it doesn't count as a suicide
about item and skillbuilds: the worst part of any guide
item builds and skillbuilds SHOULD NEVER BE STATIC
instead of listing what items you need to take list items that work on the hero and say in what situation it is a good idea to get them
Instead of making a list of abilities explain when they should be leveled and when not
Initiating doesn't necessarily mean stunning. Nobody in the right mind would focus down Dirge first. He is very enduring and this is what makes him capable of initiating. Not as well as ES, Tide or Sand King, but still. I guess I should mention he is lower tier at this job.
All my facts are correct. I have tested everything in Dota 2 and what I couldn't test, I looked up in Advanced Mechanics to confirm it before writing it down.
I agree skill and item builds should not be static and I've listed the two scenarios some spells should be taken over others. You might be right about the item build part though.
