This has been answered many times over, also several vids have been made about this
Essentially, you would need Lich for the armor, a tanker (rexxar with stoutshield to summon hawk, tribute the hawk for Enigma's Eidolon) or with Syllabear's bear with stout and RoB from someone else. It's tbh, very easy theses days. You only need 3-4 core heroes, not all 5 of them

You can't SOLO roshan at level 1. IF you mean how to do it as 5 then a number of hero combinations can manage it.

Your lineup needs:

No more than 2 melee heroes (or you'll bait the thunderclap)

1-2 Healers

Multiple sources of ranged damage

Ways of reducing roshan's DPS (read: slow)

A ring of basilius and some flasks

Syllabear is the obvious choice because you get the bear to tank, but that's kinda blatently obvious in any higher level games.

Lich is a good choice because frost armour makes your tanks harder to kill and slows roshan down. Witchdoctor has a brilliant hero overall and has that healing aura. Abaddon has shield.

A decent lineup could be:

Syllabear, WD, Lich, Drow, Venge. With Drow & Venge taking their damage auras on level 1 and stacking agi items, WD going basilius, lich taking wards + syllabear sticking a stout on the bear.

There are all kinds of ways of doing it though, this is just one. It's mainly about getting their quickly and probably tanking him, since most any combination of 5 level 1 heroes has enough damage to kill him in a minute or so.

I recall you can Roshan at Level 3 with two heroes, (Skeleton King and Ursa Warrior)
but at level 1, I'd say Syllabear for tanking, Ursa Warrior for Damage, Skeleton King for his lifesteal aura, and you should be set, for safety throw in someone with slow capability. (Traxex's Frost Arrow, Lich's Frost Armor, Enchantress' Enchant -> Ogre Magi / Ghost)

If I am not mistaken, the first team that did this is actually KS.int. I just manage to have this reply and I hope you can learn something. It was 6.59D map but i forgot the patch maybe 1.24b.. After them a lot of other ppl copy this style. It was really a big supprise for me then.

After some hours, but that's no prob...

@topic
Ursa+Leoric works wonders at level 3.


Or Furion + ES + rangeds. Have furion summon shit, autoattack at range, when creeps die have ES fissure roshan so he won't reach furion and allies, while they attack at range and furion summons another group of treants.

I think huskar can solo him at 1 with immense kiting and about 5 minutes worth of effort


If you want to 5v1 him before creeps then having summons/armor/-armor/ias/1-2 tanks/heals are the norm.



Actually furion's treants are good as long as your team is primarily comprised of ranged heroes so he doesn't stomp them and you can micro them. You really have 4-6 treants since you can summon an additional set while roshing.

Newest video I've seen show Syllabear and Ursa themselves doing rosh at level 1 but it requires salves and very early start and usage of spirit bear tanking.

Trax, Venge, Rexxar, Lich, Magna is the best combination i've found for that. If you pick them quickly, and rush roshan (trax, venge and rexxar all with aura, lich with Frost Armor and Magna with Empower (empowering venge, who hits slightly harder than trax at first), carrying one scroll on each of them, you can kill him before, or averagely at the time 1st creep wave spawns, and instantly TP to your lanes being lv 2 and with some extra gold ^^

YouTube - Most Epic Level 1 Roshan

Prophet treants + ES Fissure method. Seems to work pretty well.

New for me too, thanks!

Although it seems very risky because the opponents can see ES casting fissure, as well as Prophet going to the trees for treants. Can't believe sent didn't notice.

Any ranged hero can solo roshan... You're stupid if you don't know what I'm implying.

Roshan is not immune to magic. He just has a sort of linkens.

Can't solo Rosh. The extreme solutions are:
Sylla&Ursa lvl 1, Sylla must have two bears
Ursa lvl 4, Vlad required
Venom lvl 5, maybe even at 3
Enigma lvl 5
Don't rosh with 3 melees.

You can't "SOLO" roshan at level 1, you need a "TEAM" like lich, syllabear and someone.

If you want the most obvious Rosh @ lvl 1 lineup then you can get:

Lich - For armor and the abililty to make Rosh attack slower.
Rexxar - To provide the Bird.
Enigma - To convert the Bird into his babies.
Syllabear - To summon the bear for tanking.
Zeus - To get all the EXP at the end of it, having a lvl 3 Bolt ready for action.

NB: You can replace Rexxar and Enigma with Ursa & Dazzle also.

Not so obvious and effective early/mid/lategame Rosh lineup:

Alchemist - To tank (He has to get a PMS and Tangos from someone). He also
provides the -armor from Acid Spray
WD - To heal Alchemist and also to provide the Headdress of Rejunivication.
Drow - To provide Trueshot Aura and DPS.
Venge - To provide the armor reduction with Wave of Terror.
SF - To provide the -armor aura but this isn't really required...

NB: You can replace Alchemist and WD for Enigma & Furion (Enig+Furi basically does the same thing as Rexxar/Enig). You can experiment with other heroes as well...

You can actually SOLO rosh at level 1 with Ursa if you start with 4k gold.

@OP if you're talking about solo-ing Roshan in a 1v1 with 4k gold, the build will be like this:
URSA with--
Vlad
2 Wraith/Bracers
PMS
(Spend the rest on ironwood or circlets)

But be warned that its a 50% success rate. It will fail if Roshan stuns you too much.
But the good thing about this strat is that if it works, you will kill Roshan before creeps spawn.

Your title stated "How to SOLO roshan at level 1"
So most people came in the thread with the mind set to "soloing roshan at lvl 1", therefore missing out the part on 5 ppl. Title your thread properly pls.

treant buy - Ring of Basilius +3 armor , Healing salve
knight davion buy - ring of regeneration +2hp/sec , ring of protection ,
= +5hp/sec & +5 armor




spell's + item's = 8 armor + 5 armor , 2hp/sec + 5hp/sec = +13 armor , +8hp/sec




and i think davion can tank... and to kill roshan can help treant and lich too.. u can try... i think this is good strategy but.. i didnt try it...
