killjogging1256's guide to Naix, the Lifestealer
The Revolution of Ghoul shall begin!!!
From one and the half year of experience in DotA gaming, non of the hero never ever be my speciality. Countless long line of hero queuing up to be implemented and played by million of player around the world. Only Naix, the Lifestealer inspired me the most in anyway of playing. DPS, Support, Tank, pretty much everything in overall. It is one of the greatest hero I ever played so far.
He maybe underestimated, for being a ghoul, but you will never knew the shroud of darkness behind him. In surface and appearance, he was just a little unholy and vanity ghoul. It make it look like even the measliest unit of Holy Order could beated up a couple of ghouls like Naix's appearance.
Don't be fooled!! He maybe look stupid and brainess, in truth he is one of the most powerful anti-tank hero. In reality, the more beefy the enemy tank, the more Naix could cut out and destroy their hp pool one by one until even the best tank just crumble into dust.
He is a tanker and semicarry hero. With just a few cheap item, he is capable of outmatch anyone dare to fight him toe-on-toe. Sexy!!
PROs AND CONs
Here is a PROs and CONs about Naix, the Lifestealer. I might added up some explanation of each PROs and CONs in detail.
* Good Starting Strength
Naix has a good starting strength of 25. That supplied his starting HP pool to 625 HP. Not bad, nice.
*Great Starting Damage
Naix has a low damage-range attack. His difference in lowest damage and highest damage is just 10 damage. His starting damage is great indeed. A damage of 52 - 62, he is capable of lasthit any creep with less difficulties.
*Short Attack Animation and Casting Animation
Naix had just a attack animation of 0.39 to 0.44 sec. This advantage give Naix the edge to lasthit creep with great timing and precise period. His Casting Animation took just 0.01 sec. It is the lowest casting animation you could ever find in 97 hero of DotA. Clearly, this ghoul win the lottery of "Who will get buffed tremendeously by IceFrog"
*Above Average Movement Speed
Naix had the edge over other hero from being faster than any hero. Lost to Nessaj, Naix still had the above average MS of 315. With just a boot, you could really outmatched almost alot of hero with power thread. High MS mean Naix could survive a gank pretty well.
*Superb Anti-Tank capabilities.
Now we talking about the main point. Naix is declared as one of the most powerful anti-tank hero ever, by me!!
Just kidding. The reason is Naix had a passive abilities to dealt percentage-based damage on any hero. Imagine a 4000 HP hero got chopped off a flesh by Naix with level 4 Feast, a loss of 280 + Naix's physical damage = No joke!!!
It also grant the heal from the damage leached. Naix could stay up longer as the tank around grow beefer and got upgraded.
Infest is Naix Ultimate. You might seen that, "OMG A EAT-CREEP SKILL FOR ANTI-TANK LIKE NAIX!! THIS HERO IS SUCK!!" Well, I could screwed you for that. His Infest ( No!! NOT INCEST!! GET OUT OF YOUR PERVERTED MIND ) enable him to survive during the heated of the battle. If everything doesn't go according to your plan or the lane opponents keep molesting you to the lowest of the low, infest a creep and happy healing time.
Edit till here. To be continued....
