Re: Magnus Build.
shh i know the ultimate dps-build for mag... first of all, u can easily solo mid with magnus, wave is pretty stronk with bottle and runewhoring, it costs next to nothing. dont listen to the tards claiming only ranged heroes can go solo mid. theyre wrong. so... start with some stat-stuff and let courier bring bottle asap (alternatively just get bottle from start, magnus has very nice starting hp so it isnt a big problem) and spam wave for farming. every 2 min get the rune. then farm ur way to victory:
phase, blink, cleaver, armlet, helm of domi, crit, satanic. skilling some stats early on along with wave is recommended. if u get this in a reasonable time and are good with ur ult wiping their whole team single-handedly isnt uncommon. note that satanic aint the best dps item, but u need some survivability and new heart plain sucks. esp. on mag. u can start raping after armlet already though, its that awesome on mag.
basher and sny is terrible, ur goal is to fuck them during ur ult, and not chase them to their base afterwards. vanguard is also not needed, magnus has very nice str, no need to tank him up with cheap stuff like that. bot is nice, but mag sort of needs attackspeed badly, matter of preference i guess.
u do it like this: activate armlet, empower urself, blink-ult whack-whack-whack, shockwave to clean up the survivors.
edit: and his ult does NOT take care of escaping opponents. his ultimate catches unsuspecting opponents and RAPES them. its not for chasing. its for initiating. like, u know, 3 heroes standing around, u dont run in like a retard and start autoattacking and ult when they run away (how u would do that is beyond my imagination anyway), u do like its described in the paragraph above. in theory ur team should follow with nice aoe-spells, but if ur farming good, u may not even need them.
also: this only works for public dota games. well mb not only, but mainly.
