HERO INTRODUCTION
Huskar is unique in being the only strength hero with a regular ranged physical attack, giving him the advantages of a ranged hero and the survivability of a strength hero. Although he is a powerful force at all stages, Huskar is especially dangerous early in the game when his Burning Spears can quickly decimate any foe. Huskar can find his life quickly drained away by this ability, and must be careful to balance harassment and defense. Due to his Berserker's Blood passive, Huskar is at his most deadly when he is injured: as he gets more and more damaged, he gains damage and attack speed. Combined with his Inner Vitality healing spell, Berserker's Blood can quickly turn what may have appeared to be a losing situation into a resounding victory. His powerful Life Break ability emphasizes this suicidal fighting style, causing immense damage to both the target and Huskar himself. However, while Huskar increases in power the more damage he takes, it is unlikely that his unlucky target can say the same.
THE SACRED WARRIOR



STRENGTH 18+2.4
His primary attribute. Its quite low but its gain per level is high so no worries


AGILITY 20+2.4
Agility slightly boosts armor and attack speed. Something he could really use.



INTELLIGENCE 18+1.5
Huskar doesn't need mana 'cuz he only has 1 skill that requires mana.

As you see, huskar out weigh his cons. With the right brains he can be an excellent tank/carry/push
HUSKAR'S DEADLY SKILLS

INNER VITALITY

Magically unlocks the potential regenerative power within a target unit, healing its life force based upon its primary attribute. If the target is below 40% it will heal faster.

Quote:
A very useful skill of huskar. It is needed in tanking, clash and other situations
BURNING SPEAR

Using his own life force to set them aflame, the Sacred Warrior can cause his spears to deal stackable damage over time as they impact the foe.

Quote:
Well, in my way of playing huskar, I dont usually take this skill. I just take it when i face axe or other beefy heroes in the lane and just leave it at level one. Well, you wont be really using this when you initiate a clash because you it drains your life and in a clash your goal is to stay alive and kill your enemies. It depends on you.
BERSERKER'S BLOOD

Huskar feels each of his wounds and channels the pain, increasing attack speed and damage for each 7% missing health. First bonus starts at full health.

Quote:
The best passive skill in dota for me. It pwns the hell out of your opponents at a yellow or red hp. Combined with vitality and the right items you can spear the hell out of 5 heroes!
HUSKAR'S ULTIMATE SKILL
-LIFE BREAK-


Huskar reaches into the well of his own life force to heavily damage an enemy. Huskar is magic immune while charging towards the target. The target takes damage equal to 50% of its hp. Slows target by 50% for 5 seconds. Huskar pays a certain percentage of his hp to cast this.

Quote:
THIS SKILL CAN BE USED TO START A CLASH,GANK OR SIMPLY KILL A HERO
SKILL BUILD
  1. VITALITY
  2. BERSERKER'S BLOOD
  3. VITALITY
  4. BERSERKER'S BLOOD
  5. VITALITY
  6. LIFE BREAK
  7. BERSERKER'S BLOOD
  8. VITALITY
  9. BERSERKER'S BLOOD
  10. ATTRIBUTE BONUS(+)UNTIL IT RUNS OUT

REASON
Well, this skill build of mine is more on focused on late game and as you know it, burning spear loses effectiveness late game.
Huskar needs vitality 4 and berserker's blood 4 not berserker's blood 4 and burning spear level 4 in late game. You cant use it when you initiate a clash all enemy heroes present in a clash will obviously attack the initiator first. With Burning spears autocasting, you'll die in no time.

Quote:
Btw, don't be gay and face your enemy you dont have to be afraid to die because the more you are getting hurt the more you have a chance of killing an opponent!
ITEM BUILD

EARLY GAME
+
Get fat and get one of these
OR
Then get this

Then this

Need something for escaping or ganking ? Buy one of these.

OR
Huskar is very vulnerable to stuns. This item will help you alot. It also gives you more strength!

RICH ? Sell your bracer, buy luxury items and finish the game.

YOUR INVENTORY SHOULD LOOK A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS
OR


OR

Why?

-BRACER-GIVES +3 DAMAGE, AND +3 TO ALL ATTRIBUTES
Why ? It makes you harder and gives you damage. Great for surviving and killing early game.

-TREADS-GIVES +8 TO MAIN ATTRIBUTE, +60 MS, +25 ATTACK SPEED GIVES +8 STRENGTH.
Why ? If you find yourself getting killed easily.

-PHASE BOOTS- +24 DAMAGE AND PHASE
Why ? For chasing enemies and killing them faster.
*I did not include arcane boots because huskar doesn't need mana. He only has 1 skill that requires mana.

-ARMLET OF MORDIGGAN- GIVES +9 DAMAGE, +15 AS, +5 ARMOR, +5 HP REGEN, UNHOLY STRENGTH GIVES +27 STR,+31 DAMAGE AND +10 AS BUT 37 DAMAGE.
Why ? You dare ask why ? What can be better than +67 damage,+513hp,+15 as,+5 armor and you taking 37 dps? It gives you a shit load of health, damage and activates your berserker's blood!

-HELM OF THE DOMINATOR- GIVES +20 DAMAGE,+5 ARMOR AND LIFE STEAL
Why ? To keep you standing on your feet! You the nearer your death, the harder you kill, the higher your damage, the faster you attack! This item is just perfect if you are facing a hero harder than you or if the opposing team ganks you.

-LOTHAR'S EDGE- +38 DAMAGE +10 AS AND WINDWALK
Why ? You can use this in escaping, backstabbing. Easier to use than dagger but is easily countered by gem of true sight.

-KELEN'S DAGGER- BLINK
Why ? You can instantly blink next to your opponent. Widen the gap between you and your enemy but gets disabled if you get attacked by an enemy in the last 3 seconds. This makes escaping easier if you know the tricks.

-BLACK KING BAR- +10 STR,+24 DMG AND AVATAR
Why ? Avatar makes you magic immune for 10/9/8/7/6/5 seconds. Depending on the number of times you use it. This means you have 10/9/8/7/6/5 seconds to kill your opponents without getting stunned or damaged by magic!
-HEART OF TARRASQUE- +40 STRENGTH, +300 HP AND HP REGEN (PASSIVE)
Why ? Who wouldn't want a whopping +1060 hp and a +40 damage to str heroes ?


Quote:
You can upgrade your domi to satanic, change your treads/phase to boots of travel. Feel free to buy things that fit your situation in the game.
Gameplay

Lane Positioning
Huskar works great on both solo and dual lanes. He has a good lane control. He can harass without the fear of getting killed or losing hp.

-Solo laning
Check out the opposing team's hero.
Huskar is weak against:
Disablers like vengeful spirit
Heroes with slow like viper
Long range like traxex
Hardcore like axe
Bashers like troll or barathrum


ganking
Use your brains. Make a combo. Be unique.
Here's my combo:
Life break > armlet > normal attack > chase > dead enemy


There are times in the game wherein you get ganked
So ? What do you do ?
1.Life break a hero
2.Activate armlet
2.Vitality on yourself
3.Chase off escaping enemies
4.You got yourself a killing spree and gold.

pushing
Difficult ? No. Huskar is a very good pusher. He can tank a half-lifed tower all by himself. How ? Just cast vitality on yourself and activate armlet if you have one. Easy eh?

defence
You dont need aoe spells to destroy a horde of creeps. You just need your powerful spears. Thats all :d use armlet if you want this done faster.

YOUR BEST FRIENDS !

VIPER

You bestfriend yet your worst enemy. You two can pwn the hell out of your enemies, spell hell on their faces, be the living hell in their eyes and make them switch to another lane.

RYLAI

Any support is anyone's best friend! This is one of huskar's most favorite lane partner! With her frost nova and frost bite how would huskar hate her? You can score kills easily and quickly with her so you just gotta love her!

DISABLERS

Who would hate these dudes ? They hold your enemy while you do the job. These heroes are a great help to everyone and anyone.

HEROES WITH SLOW

Although, they aren't that useful nowadays because huskar simply charges to his enemy when he casts life break and boom they get slowed, damaged and killed. These guys are useful too to shorten the gap between you and your enemy so they're good.

COUNTERS TO HUSKAR

AXE

You hate beefy and hard heroes. When you face them you can either outsmart them, farm, or change lane.

A GOOD GYROCOPTER

Him? Yes him. Watch out for his homing missile. There's no chance of survival once that missile hits your berserker face. Combo? Homing missile > call down > rocket barrage+flak cannon > toasted.

TRAXEX

She has a long range and high damage. You are slow and squishy at level 1-5. B4 you get near her you're dead. Well at level 6 you have a higher chance of raping her.


STUNNERS/DISABLERS

When you're stunned/disabled you just simply do nothing while your hp is going down down down... So buy bkb if you're facing this kind of problem.

CONCLUSION
So, thats it. I hoped you learned something from my very first guide. I would appreciate some advice on how to improve my guide. Im open for any advice on improving this guide and some tips in guide making. Thanks For Reading !!!!!
