Purge plays Tuskar

I played this mid Tuskar game. I quite like Tuskar but this was my first time playing him since the change to snowball. If I could go back, I would change my item build.

I used to go Shadow Blade into Bfury or Deso. I'm not quite sure why I changed it up this game.

Anyways, you can use the snowball to dodge spells(something I didn't do the best job at this game) by pulling your allies into the snowball with you!

Purge plays OmniKnight

I played an Omniknight offlane game today. His ability to lane isn't super fantastic, but that's ok because his main goal is to get 1 mana item like Arcane Boots or Soul Ring, and a bunch of levels for his skills.

Once you get around level 6, you can group with your allies and force towers. If your enemies defend and you play the fight correctly, Omni has HUGE teamfight contributions.

Purge plays Beastmaster

Beastmaster is a great offlane or mid hero because of his ability to set up kills with allies. You can also stack and farm ancients to overall give yourself a lot more farm than you'd typically get in the offlane.

I played my offlane kind of bad because I died a few times but I was able to get a large amount of farm due to my stacking and general laning. I think if I did this again I perhaps would have purchased tranquil boots in the offlane to go with my Soul Ring.

Purge plays Shadow Shaman Sub Game

Shadow Shaman is a commonly played support hero in the pro scene, but he's actually quite a viable mid as well. This game I went mid and ended up going for a Midas and a handful of ridiculous items to make the game interesting.

Usually when you play Shadow Shaman you should be purchasing arcane boots and a Blink Dagger, then you should go around the map pushing towers, initiating on stunning heroes or carries, and helping disable important heroes so that you can kill them.

Purge plays Ogre Magi w/ Fogged + Merlini

Ogre Magi is a great support hero because of his roaming potential, and his natural extreme tankiness. This means that you can devote your gold towards things like arcane boots and utility items.

I like going 4-2-0-1 skill build into a 4-2-4-2 skill build since blood lust is better in the late game. Ignite is still useful early and you won't get as hard countered by black king bars because your team will be fast.

Purge plays Death Prophet

Death Prophet is a very strong mid hero because of her good attack animation, good range, and extremely spammable low mana nuke. She's pretty good against heroes like Ember spirit, unless you let him get close to you.

Try to be a bit more precise with your item build that I was this game. I regret not going Arcane Boots into Shivas or Sheep. It would have been a lot stronger than spending 5k gold on the Mek and Euls Scepter. I also could have played wayyyy better in the late game.

Try to buy tanky items and go around casting crypt swarms and silence to slow down your opponents from doing major damage and you should be able to eventually dps them down.
