About this Guide:
This guide focus on making Strygwyr into the highest DPS machine. Several DPS items will be be compared to determine the highest DPS per gold spent.
Since the nerf to Blood Rage, the guide advocate of using Blood Rage only for the silence. The skill is maintained at Lv1 while the extra skill points are added to stats.
Radiance build will not be covered in this guide due to the different concept. As stated earlier, the guide focus on making Strygwyr into the highest DPS machine.
Imbued with shamanistic and demonic powers, Strygwyr is able to replenish his health with the lives he takes, as well as sense weakened souls which allow him to go into a blood frenzy, increasing his movement speed so he can chase down the enemy; if the hunted attempts to escape, Strygwyr will curse him to lose health if he moves. Up close and personal, the Bloodseeker can empower himself to almost double his damage, becoming on par even with the toughest fighters.

Skill Build Justification:
1 > Blood rage at lv1 for the 6 seconds silence and 120 damage 'nuke'
2 > Skill Blood Bath at lv2, 3 and 5 early to help with laning.
3 > 1 lv of Thirst at lv 4 for chance of early first blood attempt.
4 > This build focus on Blood Rage is use solely for the silence. The skill is remain at lv1 almost throughout the whole game. Since the nerf additional lv in Blood Rage only increase the duration by 1 seconds.
5 > Thirst only skill to lv 3 early because the Item build has Yasha which provide 10% ms. Yasha(10%) and lv 3 Thirst (33%) provides 43% ms. Resulting in total MS with Treads 365 + 365*43% = 522 ms.
6 > Rupture is skilled whenever possible.
7 > With this build, Strygwyr will have 6 skills of stats by lv16 providing +12 to all stats.
8> Do not underestimate Stats. This is almost equavalent to some Heroes' Ultimate which provides Stats *hint*centaur*hint*drow*hint*.
