It shifts with the map versions.Pretty much like in sports,someone gets out of shape a new kid appears etc.
And there is never 1 best but a few.

It always depends on your lineup and on the enemies lineup.

I don't think there really are hard carries anymore. Every carry in this version is useful mid game (with the possible exception of medusa)

Medusa, in the current version.
Doom is not bad either, he doesn't even need to rice farm much.

The current metagame is sucking drow's dick right now.

But if you're talking pubs, then SF is the way to go. SF is the only hero that can win a game by himself, against the 5 enemies on the other team and the 4 enemies on your team.

..Yeah, there are too many "Best" threads. Not only that, this thread has too little info. Which is the strongest carry with a full set of items? Which carry can destroy the others 1 on 1? Which carry has the most Damage per Second? There are seriously too many discussions about the best carry.

Default Re: Best Carry in DotA

It is impossible to say who the best carry is in dota because there are such things as counters. Those underlined in the list below are the most popular ones at the moment.

Hard Carries:
  • Medusa
  • Morphling
  • Storm Spirit
  • Necrolyte
  • Drow Ranger
  • Phantom Lancer
  • Void
  • Bloodseeker
  • Clinkz
  • Broodmother
  • Terrorblade
  • Razor
  • Spectre
  • Destroyer

There are also those who have the potential of being a hard carry but aren't typically classified as one. However I will not list those.

Drow = Dusa > SF = Storm = Morph > Necro.

Those are the most played and most effective carries this version.

Doom and Visage too, but they're permabanned.

How is Visage, of all heroes, a carry? He's an imba ganker; sure he can go 30-0 by the 30th minutes, but if the game drags out to 50 minutes he can't even scratch a Void, 'Dusa, Morph, etc.

Not only versions but the situation. I believe the situation is the biggest factor.

PL is a great carry. So is OD, Medusa, CK, NS. It largely depends.

I'm not very experienced player, but I wonder why no one mentioned Moonrider. Because of her shorter range?
I always had great results with her (in pubs).

with 30-0 by the 30th minute you give enough advantage for your team to seal the deal, hence you're a carry.

I always had great results with her (in pubs).
it has agreat potential but ( like you said ) she has got 330 range cause she has glaives but still 600 range and another skill would be better imo.
She is very very squishy aswell and a disable means death for her.

the strongest carries are medusa , drow ranger and morphling.
around lvl 16 drow is the strongest of these but after i'd say morph and dusa.

and if we include semi carries surely one of the best is storm spirit.

A carry is all about getting 5-6 slots of items and steamrolling the enemy team.

one hero can be carry it depend the enemy. every your friend allies must have skill to counter the enemy skill. So what the skill and what the counter? yesterday i build new thread "List of every skill counter" in game strategy to list that.

so conclusion: there's no one of the best carry ever in dota, its depend the enemy and allies how to counter every skill that....

There is a difference between carrying your team and being a carry. A carry is a general term used like a ganker/pusher.

Undoubtedly Medusa and Drow Ranger are top.
Storm is top as ever.
Alchemist is very good. He will get Radiance + Vanguard and you're gonna have trouble in your 28th minute.
Doom is generally imba and is your archetypal mid-game carry.
Harbinger is underused but brilliant.
Tinker is still good - he's only a tiny bit worse than his 6.59 cousin.
Necro is good if the situation calls, say they have an alchemist.
Kunkka is still homosexual and drop CM in his lane and you won't stop him getting 50 cs in 10 minutes.
SF you also won't stop getting 50 cs in 10 minutes.
Broodmother is volatile and situationally brilliant. Call her a carry if you will. She'll take your towers and can fuck up your team battles with vlads bkb.
Chaos Knight hasn't fully matured in everyone's eyes and I don't know where we stand with this guy. He has great potential.
Phantom Lancer is a great last pick against AoE-light teams and no matter how fashionable it is for try-hards to dismiss pub-carries on this website, he's strong.
Ursa is such a gay fucking hero. If he gets his hands on vlads, bkb and blink, and aegis, he's guaranteed to fuck up your next team battle.
Bloodseeker isn't a carry.
Clinkz with his new ultimate can fuck shit up but I don't know much about him yet.
Windrunner is a solid hero with fluency in any game.

There you go OP
