Vlads, Sange & Yasha, and Bfly would work just fine.

Diffusal blade. 16 total charges makes him great hero killer/ganker.

1. vlads is a support item. dont get it with riki...
2. sange and yasha is good on riki but diffusal is better (more dmg and purge)
3. before you get your orb: 2-3 wraiths and treads

Most definitely.
SnY isn't terrible. But purge is delicious.
Didn't really add much to this post but go treads/wraiths/diffusal for core =D

Cool

Rikimaru is the first ever hero i picked in my entire life. He is also the first ever hero I used that I owned so much. For Riki, I get boots/tango/flask, I then upgrade boots to pt, so he attacks so much more faster.^^ After that I stay in the lane and let my teammates gank and push, because riki has the advantage of being permanently invisible( sort of ), the enemy dont bother trying to kill me since they know they cant kill me and is a waste of their time. After I am able to farm, I usually get a butterfly and after that I can take on even the most tough heroes.( blink, smoke, atack 4 times, blink, dedz )^^.

But for competitive games, Riki should get diffusal blade since its a lot more easier to build up than butterfly, and the purge will help you in ganks. ( blink, purge/smoke, smoke/purge, atack 4 times, blink, ownage) ^+^

core items for low level games like garena: pt, butterfly

core items for high level games: pt, diffusal

please check my dragon, help it grow a lot faster!!!

Divine Rapier.

Nuff' said.

( Power Treads, 2 - 3 Wraths, Diffusal // Manta. This is your core

Power Treads for burst power when you initiate
2 - 3 Wraths for pure stats
Diffusal for awesome-purge if they happen to escape
-> Manta for more burst power when you initiate )

Highly unorthodox, but I usually get MoM with SA and own with it. Treads, 3 Bracers, MoM, and butterfly is all you really need. Seeing as SA is a super imba hero with stupid imba damage, you don't really need alot of fancy items. MoM does what S&Y and Vlads do combined, minus the Maim.

Diffusal > Manta > Butterfly.

Manta is skippable if going Butterfly straight is possible. For earlygame, go Wraiths and Treads.

Remains nearly the same, diffusal as many other posters have stated. S & Y lost effiency on him a long time ago. Manta is debatable, but I don't think the invisibility transfers to the illusions. Bfly after core and game should be over by then.

the invi transfers.
still in 6.60s item builds I think after 2wb pt diffu you just purchase another one for moar charges, while buid the butterfly, leaving the manta for last (though the yasha could be made before butterfly as its not very expensive for all the agi and the +ms (later completes to manta)).
add in a cranium basher before/after manta for the lulz xd

Default Re: Rikimaru Items

^This is an old old thread...

Anyways, I go for MoM + Cranium Basher
Lifesteal + HP Bonus (from Basher) + Berserk

You basically blink strike, smoke, berserk. Any human will run away from you (back facing you). When the target is bashed/stunned, you get to hit him many times (dealing lots of backstab damage) and he will tremble to death.

My favourite build.

mom+basher sa can be very very strong in pubs especially for comebacks.

Usually go treads-vang/urn-yasha and extend, usually with basher+SnY+dps. While Diffu is good its still situational.

Default Re: Rikimaru Items

An extremely unorthodox orb that Riki can use is Eye of Skadi, believe it or not. I saw a competitive replay in which the Riki player rushed Skadi and it was really effective. Skadi boosts his abysmal HP by a huge amount and at the same time slow its opponent, making it virtually impossible to escape his smoke. The slow of course cannot be compared to Diffusal Blade (plus the debuff or course), but the other benefit it gives is quite significant.

The replay should be hosted on replays.net for anyone interested, don't have time to go over all riki replay, but it should be around 5-6 months ago.

Default Re: Rikimaru Items

treads, then literally any item with +agility.

MoM sounds like an interesting alternate build.

As has been said already, build wraith bands early on, then get one of:
diffusal - manta - SnY - butterfly.

If your farm is going poorly, make another wraith band, then get back to making one of previously mentioned 4 items.

And then you get dusted and stunned to death.
Build MoM only if you're playing against enemies that go solo all the time and dont buy dust/sentry/gem, in other words, really weak enemies. MoM+Bahser should do the work.
Those bracers are fucking useless, better stack Wraith Bands.
S&Y is good, but Diffusal is better. As for Vladmirs get it only as last item, if no one else built it. Everything else is better than Vladmirs on Rikimaru. Even Battlefury.

A rather effective pubstomper. Much better than AM / Spec and such.

Urn + Agi treads / Phase

Bash / Difu
Difu / Bash
Yasha

And thats pretty much all you need. Key item being Urn, which is so awesome on riki, its almost unbelievable.

Default Re: Rikimaru Items

I used to love Riki, until I got my ass warded in a decent game.

On topic, +1 to Urns. You can collect lots of charges and healing up is easy since you can just retreat somewhere and do it, while being inexpensive HP. PT (Str), PMS, and Urn should get you good survivability early-game.

Then, I usually go straight for a Diffusal. Build-up is pretty nice and it will help a LOT in ganks and stuff.

Then, a Yasha is pretty appropriate, since Manta/SnY are both good. Ir if you have good farm or you're up a bit, go straight for a Butterfly.

In my opinion I find him to be not as effective as magina in pubs, if you are against anyone half decent, they buy dust and nuke you to death. Spread out for cloud and kill you. Magina can survive big ganks and farm up, unless they specifically counterpicked you. Magina can pressure lanes quite safely and grab free mana void kills from some ints.
Riki can just die from some aoe nukes. Although against total noobs that dont buy anti invis, and dont countergank, riki is better.
