Default Item build for Sand King


What would be the best build for SK currently?

I use bottle, treads, blink, bkb/hearts/linkens. Situational items.

Lining : 6 Tngo, 2 Mana bottles, probably wand recipe, rest -- ggbranch
Then Wand -> Boots -> Bottle -> Dagger -> Phase Boots -> Win

So, according to these replies, here's what I gather.

1. 3x GG Branches
2. Empty Bottle
3. Boots
4. GG Branches->Magic Wand
5. Arcane Boots
6. Blink dagger
7. BKB/Aghanim's (Depends on oppo)

Well, sometimes i get Str treads in early/midgame for the hp boost and having some attack speed doesn't do harm either.

But Phase gives dmg+some MS, and an active Phase. But I'd think Blink could function as well as Phase, whether as an escape mechanism or to chase enemies. So in my opinion, Phase doesn't really work well, as even Burrowstrike can be used to escape or chase.

No i believe using items doesn't cancel channeling, but using skills/spells/moving/attacking, will cancel it. By the way, since we are on this topic. When channeling, after the tail strikes the first time, I blink in, to get a perfect Epicenter. Is that correct?

half wrong/correct..."tail strike first time" is just lol
the correct sequence is:
hold down shift>press ult>blink to target location

Sand King has a pretty standard build IMO.

Starting items :
3 x GGBranch
1 x Clarity
1 x Salve
1 x Set of Tangos

Overall item :
By order-
Boots
Bottle
Magic Wand
Blink Dagger
Upgrade your boots to BoT or Phase
Shiva's Guard/Aganimns(however you spell it)/or both

Game prolly ends then.

Sorry about the bad English. Hahas. What i meant was, ''the first second of channeling Epicenter''. As you know SK's tail goes down twice before Epicenter's effect is activated.

1. GGBranches/claritys/tangoes/salves/stick/courier or whatever.
2. Bottle/Wand/Boots (Order depending on situation).
3. Dagger ~15 min is quite good.
4. Aghanims/Force staff/boots upgrade(usualy phase).
5. Any luxury items. eg Travels/Shiva/HoT/Radi.

I would have to say, that it really depends on how you play SK. I personally almost never upgrade my boots with him, except maybe late game, I make BoT. I don't see how any of the other boot upgrades help him very much, in comparison to bottle, wand, maybe urn (situational), wards, ESPECIALLY blink and maybe even a Shiva rush would be better. Please don't ever buy arcane boots on him when you already got bottle and wand, l2 control your mana instead, he's not THAT mana intensive. Phase boots is okay, but again, for the price you almost got your blink instead or you could have warded the entire map. But it depends on how you play him, I play him like a ganker/supporter, then late game an initiator. I don't need to upgrade my boots for that, especially when the games are so short nowadays.
