Wrong, Offensive Build is Godly. Don't do the pussy build of maxing timewalk and backtrack first. Lots of ppl underestimate the power of walk + bash in lane. You can easily grab kills with another stunner/slower.
What i find is best for void is:
get walk at lvl1, max bash over backtrack, get ult whenever you can.
There's no point leveling Timewalk early. 1 Lvl of it is sufficient to escape any gank(walk into woods) and to chase.
Leveling backtrack makes you very passive in lane with almost no killing power, and it doesn't help you farm in anyway.
However, maxing bash first makes you dangerous because you can always blink/start hitting, if a bash procs, it normally means that your opponent have to back because they're in yellow hp zone (don't forget that you have lane partner as well). You can also trade hits with enemies.(when you have stout shield)
Try it and be amazed.
Early-Mid Itembuild: Quelling blade, wand, str tread (turn into agi later) and Vanguard, then MoM. If your team is doing very well go PMS instead of vanguard.
