Slark is a pretty survivably gank/tank carry with pretty solid offensive potential. he has lately been seeing some play in the pro scene because of his ability to farm pretty well while also getting kills and resisting stuns. Dark Pact is a lot of the cause for his survivability, since it can remove negative buffs. If you predict the stuns, it gives you a free sort of black king bar. This game was very close and very stressful. Enjoy!

Elder Titan is a strong mid hero versus anything but top tier mids, especially squishies with low hp or no escape! You should build utility items to assist your team, such as Mek, and an Arcane is recommended as most of your utility is in your spells. You can go around ganking, and especially are useful for stopping pushes. Late game you should often hang back and counter initiate on your opponents as you'll be more likely to catch multiple people with your combo! He's a fun hero! Go try him :)

I think Vengeful Spirit is a great support hero. Her reliable stun is great for ganking, and her Wave of Terror has multi purpose use. Swap can be really fantastic for saving allies and ganking opponents as well, and there are a couple support items that synergize fantastic with her skills, such as urn and medallion. Go stun people.

Batrider is one of the best solo mids in the game, and he transitions fantastic because of his gank and always powerful teamfight contributions. Blink dagger is an absolute must for making him stronger at initiating, and this should be followed up by a force staff.
