Taking Split shot early also won't work as long as there's at least one enemy in the lane. It's like stupidly saying please deny dem creeps.
maels and lifesteal stacks with each other, but that's not the reason why maels sucks balls. It's the same reason why MoM is also a retarded item on Medusa.
I will be frank this time, BF is kind of a questionable item(or even retarded, if you will). It gives you sustainability, but no survivability.
Yes, they do, on dota2, but mael cuts lifestealing efficience by 25%. Imagine the scenario, you with 20%HP, you put on the satanic and the maelstorm procs two times. that's a lot of lifesteal, it is good wf you're someone who can be good without tons of lifestealing like Void or Lone druid, but medusa needs the lifestealing, really needs. Also, you don't want an AS item on someone who build butterfly, threads an skadi as the 1st items, because it'll give enough AS.
Also, I didn't pick battlefury for the survivality, I pick it because it lets you farm the jungle, spam snake, laugh at the enemy harrasing, and giving you a nice amount of damage, Linken can give you sustainability also, but the damage is NOTHING, and you can't be farming with 70 base damage at 25mins., and skadi is more powerful in terms of survivality than any other item.
She loves the regen, she really does.
