I think someone should make a Youtube video - 30 mins of gruesome and horrible CM deaths in Dota.

I would throw in something like a vanguard at least - he got a shitty str gain, needs to be near his prey to unleash rocket barrage and the ability to dive towers is sometimes needed to finish of missiled enemies.

Default Re: Gyrocopter Item build?

phase>arcane boots for him, low cd/hp chaser, he needs that mobility to land as much as he can skill one.

Bottle seems a viable item (low mana cost spells and good ganker)
I tried scadi first game with him, the slow effect doesn't affect skill 3.

Ghinsoo/eul does wonders: land ulti/ land stun/time for CDs/escape mechanisms. Dagger too I think. Dagon makes sense. Necro too.(good item for all non blinkers anyway and does wonders if the enemy is trap in the ultimate ) Shiva's, dunno(because he has already 2 low cd farm skill and he is agi(armor)) Tarasque should be better. Ghoscepter occasionnaly, against some hero it makes skill cds come back and a chance for 1/2/4skills combo.

Dunno if a dps build can work with the lazy range, anyway the cleave owns in pushing/farming and a bit in teamfights.

I see him more with supportive items late game hence he is not at all a carry(3nukes olol). You can already ban orb effects items/refresher for him, manta should not be taken too imo (low base hp, no synergie from anything except ms)

Thanks for the replies. I think Vanguard and Bracers are core for him, as well as Arcane Boots / Bottle and Phase Boots. Wand and Urn keeps his HP and Mana in decent levels too. With his insane farming ability with Flak Cannon, he can sure farm more than that, and a Linkens helps you survive longer.

He needs some tanky crap, at the very least a vanguard or something. From what I saw today, he fed every game, even in the hands of decent players. Way too paper.

HOTD is so you stack the ancient camp for either your Butterfly or your DR gold.

In a nutshell, is he a ganker or a carry? His Stun-->Ult-->Barrage ensures a strong ganking potential, but his 3rd spell screams DPS..

Ganker. He is very good at 1 vs 1 situations. He reminds me a clokwerk goblin who does his best (with his battery assault) when enemy is alone. And he is not a carry... his spells do direct damage, he may be quite strong in a mid game but he will get raped by any real carry in the late game.

Default Re: Gyrocopter Item build?

His 1st and 2nd skill will do their best if ur enemy is alone... oK we can think like this:
If an enemy that u are ganking has summons, no matter who just multiple units u can clear them with ur 3rd orb effect and than target ur first and second skill for the lone enemy to kill him easily. Also ur ulti is a great long range nuke that can be used to finish off ur opponent or just to damage and slow him to further attack him. It is just my opinion not a statement xD

think about it, with enough DPS, 6 attacks is enough to demolish 2/3 heroes on a team. In like 2/3 seconds. Not to mention his AOE kabloeey. But all other skills is like saying HEY GANK WITH ME MAN, that's what makes me wonder.. any suggs?

He is a hybrid. For instance take a look at enigma. HE is quite good at ganking and I think no one will argue about his team fight potential. He is a bit hard to use, but i just see Helicopter very good at ganking. Just my opinion

Actually im think lothars on him. He needs pure damage for his his third skill and the abilty to get close to people is impotant. I saw him totally own a game when he gets fed cause of the 3rd skill later. However he needs mana to spam skills so over go arcane boots or get bottle.

a hybrid between team fight and ganking is acceptable, but can the same be said with ganking and carrying (when carrying, I mean it as DPSing late game)?

I wont say hes a true carry.
He ganks well, also he is a great pusher, barrage + 3rd skill clears the creepwaves so fast its not even funny.
Supporting may be not his primary role, since he needs some survivability items and other stuff, but buying the wards and courier can be done by him.

I dunno lol. just 1 day passed since that hero is introduced to us xD Be patient, practice a bit and that's all. But i think it is pretty obvious that he is not a carry. He reminds me puck somehow, he can be really scary till the mid game, but late game his orb effect is for pushing and for team fight dps, just like dusa. Very interesting hero, but definitely, not a carry.

Somehow that Flak makes me think of Kunkka. maybe, in stead of cleavers, you should stack high dmg items on him to gain max aoe dmg, like Kunkka does if i'm correct? Radiance might be an option?

I think attack speed is useless because you should manage getting out 6 hits with your BAT before they run away.

Default Re: Gyrocopter Item build?

he's more of a jack of all trade then any specific hero.. more like Medusa, without the tanking but more AOE capacity.

it's probably easier to just use phase boot and hope you got another gank hero to help you out. it's a bit hard to initiate with him only and really, any hero that REQUIREs a dagger to initiate should NOT be your primary ganker.

I'd suggest to just stuff him with bracers + phase boots, add in EUL as first item since it gives you mana and movement both you need a lot, not to meantion a life saving move + disable move.

After that it's really up to the situation, if you really lack initators, go dagger. if your having tanking problems, go bloodstone or linken, if your really lacking in DPS, try to go for some kind of DPS items.

I'd consider him a pusher with some ganking and teamfight ability. Therefore, I suggest playing him as a pushing and harassing supporter with Bottle/Wand/Urn/RoB, PMS, Phase Boots and some hp stuff.
