Kill Roshan at Level 1 Hero Line Up

Nowadays, it’s possible to take Roshan at level 1 and get the advantages over the enemy. Imagine when you’re start your match with one of your friend already on level 5? Great isn’t it? But taking Roshan at level 1 is also risky. If you failed or taking too long, you can start the match under leveled. Here is 7 line up who can kill Roshan even before the creeps appear:

Old School Line Up

+ 2 random heroes

Those 3 is the best combination to kill Roshan. Fury Swipes on Ursa, Frost Amor casted on Syllabear Bear and that’s all. But if you pick these hero, i guess most of the team will realize what’s your plan ^^ And here’s some more combination that’s less obvious for Roshan at level 1.

Line Up 1

Zeus : Arc Lightning, to get rid of Roshan’s linken ability so Panda can use Drunken Haze
Panda : Drunken Haze, make Roshan’s attack miss
Enigma : Eidolons, taking from Furion summons
Furion : Force of Nature
Lycan: Howl, adding damage to all the summons and heroes

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, heroes have random stat items

Level 5 Candidates: Zeus

Line Up 2

Broodmother : Incapacitating Bite, slow
Dazzle : Shadow Wave, heal
Shadow Fiend : Presence of the Dark Lord, reduce armor aura
Templar Assassin : Meld, reduce armor
Alchemist : Acid Spray, reduce armor

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates:Broodmother, Shadow Fiend, Templar Assassin

Line Up 3

Ursa Warrior : Fury Swipes for obvious reason, stacking damage
Crystal Maiden : Crystal Nova, slow effect
Omniknight : Purification, heal
Witch Doctor : Voodoo Restoration, heal
Skeleton King : Vampiric Aura

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates :Ursa Warrior

Line Up 4


Juggernaut : Healing Ward, heal
Lich : Frost Armor, slow Roshan when hit the tanker
Tidehunter : Gush, reduce armor
Vengeful Spirit : Wave of Terror, reduce armor
Rhasta : Shackles, remove Roshan’s linken for Gush

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Lich, Juggernaut

Line Up 5

Beastmaster : Inner Beast, attack speed aura
Drow Ranger : Frost Arrows
Lina : Light Strike Array, stun
Venomancer : Plague Ward
Abaddon : Aphotic Shield

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Beastmaster, Lina

Line Up 6

Rooftrellen : Living Armor
Morphling : Morph, max the Agility for max damage
Syllabear : Summon Spirit Bear, tanking damage
Enchantress : Nature’s Attendants, heal
Viper : Nethertoxin, add damage

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Viper

Of course you can switch hero between that line up who has the same role. What do you think? If you have another line up, share it here!

DotAzilla V 1.2.0

DotAzilla learns a new feature:-
Dear Dota-Throne users,
we have been monitoring SIG games and the overall DotA playstyle for a while. Lots of people use third party programs, assisting them in their daily DotA play.
A few of them are considered hacks and have major impact on the gameplay, giving blatant advantages to single players.
Other addons have proven to be useful, Examples are hotkey tools or the first programs that provided permanent health bars. Meanwhile, some of such changes made their way into the retail version of Warcraft 3 and Blizzards latest release, Starcraft 2.

Another third party program that is currently getting more and more popular is Mana bars. It takes valid information, the mana of visible heroes, and displays an additional blue bar below the health bar. It helps maintaining an overview about the nearby heroes mana.
Some say it is an advantage, some say it is not. We decided to put a modified version of it into the latest DotAzilla version and make it available for everyone in order to keep the fairest play for everybody.
The upcoming version 1.2.0 of DotAzilla will contain an adaptation of the ManaBars utility with some modifications and fixes. It shows mana bars for yourself and your team mates. It is opt-in (see DZ settings) and can of course be enabled/disabled on the users demand.
Along with mana bars come many fixes, e.g. working !priv/pubrehost on Windows Vista/7, ability to display localized messages with diacritis ingame and more...

What is DotAzilla?

is Dota-Throne very own DotA helper tool, designed to enhance the user's playing experience by providing useful features and allowing advanced statistics generation.

is designed to be as easy as possible, just start it and forget it, it will discover Warcraft and SIGs automatically, no need for you to do anything. It can auto start Warcraft if you wish, so no extra click needed. It automatically updates itself, so you always have the latest features and improvements with you. It is unobtrusive, it will reside only as a tray icon most of the time and it uses almost no system resources, to not impact your playing experience besides its helping features.

Jin'zakk, the Batrider Guide and Walkthrought

Welcome to my Batrider guide. I decided to write this guide because Batrider is one my favourite heroes and I want to share the expirience of this devasting burning beast with you.
Jin'zakk is a hero with awesome early game DPS, lane control and mobility. He is an unusual intelligence hero in the way, that he has low range but pretty high strenght gain. His spell are mostly melee-ranged that means you have to throw yourself recklessly into a bunch of enemies and burn everything what stands in your way.
His playstyle is pretty suicidal and to be well executed, you always have to walk on a razor's edge. The more courage and insanity you have while playing Batrider, the better!
But enough talking, let's start with the guide.

Pros and Cons:

[+] Strong early game presence and damage
[+] Able to fly over obstacles and cliffs
[+] Stackable slow that makes your enemies crawl
[+] His disable goes trough magic immunity
[+] Good farmer
[+] High strenght gain for an intelligence hero

[-] Has to be almost in melee range to unleash his damage
[-] Has to stack Napalm to deal serious damage
[-] Low attackrange and movementspeed
[-] Needs a Blink Dagger to use his ultimate perfectly
[-] Gets weaker lategame

Skill Build

Level 1 - Sticky Napalm/ Firefly
Level 2 - Firefly/ Sticky Napalm (*)
Level 3 - Sticky Napalm
Level 4 - Firefly
Level 5 - Sticky Napalm
Level 6 - Flaming Lasso
Level 7 - Sticky Napalm
Level 8 - Firefly
Level 9 - Firefly
Level 10 - Flamebreak
Level 11 - Flaming Lasso
Level 12 - Flamebreak
Level 13 - Flamebreak
Level 14 - Flamebreak
Level 15 - Attribute Bonus
Level 16 - Flaming Lasso
Level 17+ - Attribute Bonus

Pretty straight cookie-cutter build. Napalm is maxed first to make use of the great damage amplification. The stackable slow and the enhanced damage are just to good to pass it up. Firefly is taken afterwards to maximise the damage you can deal by stacking Napalm and flying over your targets.
Flaming Lasso is of course taken whenever you can, because it lowers the cooldown and increases the duration. Always remember, it's one of the most reliable disables in the game.
Flamebreak is taken over stats because an additional nuke, that breaks chanelling and can be used to scout is never bad.
After level 16 it's your decision but i would suggest you take Stats rather than nothing. By god, I made this joke already in my Chen guide and it's still so funny.

(*) If you don't think you can score firstblood by level 2 with a Napalm - Firefly combo, because you are maybe facing a trilane or heroes with good escape mechanisms and stuns like PotM and Windrunner, you may want to take Firefly at level one to have an escaping mechanism yourself.
Always remember that Firefly makes you unchaseable because the enemies will permanently get damaged by following you and at level one even a 20 DPS firetrail can be devasting when paired with attacks from creeps and towers.

Item Build:
Starting Items:

Get a combination of those. Regeneration is always necessary, especially for suiciding rambos like Batrider. Magic Stick rocks, Gauntlets are cool and Branches are even cooler.
If your team does not have a chicken, buy it yourself, it's necessary and underestimated.
A Ring of Regeneration or Stout Shield can be bought if you don't have to provide a chicken for your team, but that's your decision.
DON'T GET BOOTS AT START. Even it may seem good on Batrider because of his strong chasing and low movementspeed you need other items to stay in lane long enough to establish your lane control. If you have to go back and get underleveled, you are nothing but a big, flying creep with a disable.

Core Items:


Get Boots asap, finish get a Wand and and Urn. Boots are a no-brainer and Magic Wand is just to good to not get it.
Urn is a great item. It provides HP, manaregen and a heal or a damage over time debuff for your enemies. It's a perfect item for gankers like Bat that need HP and mana.
And FUCKING ALWAYS carry a TP scroll with you. Most important item in the game without any doubt.
After getting those items, work towards your fist big item. You will either get a Vanguard or a Hood of Defiance or both. Most of the time you will get both, believe me. You can get that item earlier, if you feel its necessary because of happily harassing enemies.
Normally, you should not get wards. You need your gold for other things, let your support provide wards. But If you face invisible heroes, Dust is recommended.

Extended Core Items:

Your first goal is to get beefy. Depending on whether the enemy's team consists of physical DPS or of nukers get either Vanguard or Hood first. Most of the time, it's a combination of both, therefore I recommend getting Vanguard most of the time first, as it provides raw HP and a way to lower the damage you take from creeps. But this really depends on the situation.
After getting your first tank item, most of the time you want to get the other one or work for a straight Blink Dagger. This, again, depends. I recommend getting both Vanguard and Hood before thinking of a Blink Dagger, as it's a rather expensive item in comparison to the parts of VanHood and getting killed is a heavy setback. Nevertheless, if you feel tanky enough, a Dagger is absolutely necessary as it enables the perfect use of Flaming Lasso.

Extended extended Core Items:
After gettting Vanguard, Hood and Blink, think of up upgrading your boots. If your doing well, it's never a bad decision to get Boots of Travel, but Power Treads (either Int or Str) are also a good item for Bat.

Luxury Items:

If you are doing well and you have spare money, a Guinsoo would be the first decision. It provides an additional Disable for your team and provides all the mana you will ever need. But as it's a very expensive item, only get it when you have everything else you need.
Linken's also provides enough mana so you won't need anything more but is also very expensive. VanHood is superior in terms of surviving, regarding the performance/ cost ratio. It offers a spell-block, that counters for example single-target disables or in the worst case, Doom.

Situational Items:

Pipe can be a good upgrade for your Hood if you face a heavy AoE-lineup.
About Force Staff, it can be used if you want to quickly drag your lasso'd enemy to your teammates or if you need an additional escape mechanism.
It's a pretty supportish item, that means get it for your team when you feel like it.

Rejected Items:

NEVER get Phase Boots. You don't need the damage they provide and the Phase ability malfunctions with your Firefly. If you activate it both at the same time, you won't be able to pass though creeps anymore what is very bad. Blink Dagger does the same thing and is way superior to Phase Boots.
Shiva's, while seeming good (and it really would be), should not be gotten because it does not work with your Napalm. It overrides the Napalm stacks on your target and therefore the enemies won't be superslowed nor take additional damage from your abilites anymore. A clear case of mechanic-fail, sorry IceFrog.
Radiance once was core on Batrider. But the sparkling AoE aura does not get amplified by your Napalm stacks anymore, therefore it's now a bad item for Bat.

Hero Synergy:
Again (as stated in my Chen guide), every hero profits from disables, I won't list every hero here. I'm only talking of exceptional synergy here.

Abaddon is one of the best laning partners for Batrider. He can babysit you as he does not need very much items to perform well while supporting your rambo-like suicide flys with his heal and shield. Your greatest weakness early game are enemies who can disable and outdps you. Abaddon makes this impossible. the same thing counts of course for Omniknight.

While being a great lanepartner for everyone, Witch Doctor works very, very well with Batrider. His stun enables you to quickly and safely engange the enemy and the combined power of Napalm, Firefly and Maledict kills even the strongest enemy. In addition, troll powa, man!

It's not only Enigma who greatly enhances Bat's performance, actually every jungling hero with disables, like Chen or Enchantress works well with Bat. They enable you to solo the long lane and can support you with ganks from the jungle. Nice one.

As a combo-breaker, Silencer can fuck up your initiating pretty much. Normally, you blink in, Lasso someone, activate Firefly and spam Napalm. When you have a Silencer against you, you have to wait a long, long time between every spell. Bah!

Early Game nukers, like Tinker (or Zeus) can fuck up your lane presence. You are vulnerable to nukes as long as you are not tanky enough to survive. We are lucky that those strong early game heroes most of the time go to the mid lane to have the rune and level advantage, there it does not happen very often that we have to face them.
