Default How do you play Lone Druid?


I cannot for the life of me play that guy. I have less than 1 bar in performance with him, so I kinda would like to know some nifty tips.

Basically you can take mid or easy lane. Farm farm and farm. Try to avoid getting ganked for the first 15/20m and get your Radiance... proceed to win the game in the next 20m!

Use separate hotkeys for your bear and hero that's comfortable for you to use. Microing your bear well is a key aspect of playing Syllabear. Personally I set my hero to 1 and bear to 2.

Also, once your rabid is lvl 3/4, make sure it's always active.

No, you are not getting your 3000th post before me.

OT: Don't get radiance, get an orb of venom on bear and then get maelstrom on yourself.

I personally go medallion into deadelus on the bear, lets you solo Rosh and then gib squish targets in teamfights.

Double Hand of Midas works, if your goal is to be a worthless piece of crap to your team for fifty minutes.

Default Re: How do you play Lone Druid?

Double midas is so pointless, one is ok and will speed up your farm but will slightly delay your radiance. But to ask your question Druid just needs to farm both his and his bears core items so basically a farm fest but try to survive (thats if your enemy team is smart enough to) and get that radiance. After get some AS on your bear and some survivabilty on your main hero, if you can get a radiance at the 15 min mark you should be able to own.

Entangle is a buff placer and way better than orb of venom.
so dnt take orb of venom on bear.
i usually go farming for first five mins.
at lvl7 I take bottom scourge twr/top sent twr.
then rosh with medallion and bear.
and proceed to help my team.
my items are HH,Basher(if playing melee more than range), Heart, crystalys->Deadalus/buriza ,phase(to give a speed boost when melee)/tranq ,Medallion.
i usually stay melee my whole game.
bear items.
VG, Phase/Tranq,Battlefury(melee),AC.
if ur game goes longer than this then smthing is wrong.

You should be junglin' for a while then start pushing. Get easy kills if you're able to, but no need to rush if you're not comfortable with it.

Default Re: How do you play Lone Druid?

I prefer 1 Midas, Crystalys/Buriza, Treads, Basher/Abyssal, Satanic, Heart/Hood depending on how long the game is still going to last.

On bear, Crystalys/Buriza, Tranquil Boots, Basher/Abyssal, Vlad's, Cuirass.


I like maxing Rabid before Synergy way more useful.
It helps to trigger Entangle more often/when you need it.

Try to take someone 1 on 1 to get yourself a guaranteed kill.


I don't see the point in going ranged after lvl6, since you're super fragile if you don't True Form.
