    It seems like PD is split in half on this subject. Half say she makes a good hard carry, the other half feels like she should play the early/mid game ganker role.

    Discuss what's best.

    I would say that her blur skill is the perfect ganker tool

    Her main role is to be a hard carry lategame, with proper items and enough of farm. Current metagame encourages early-game ganging, since there`s alot of cash involved in killing enemy heroes. It would be great to have Mort farming, and assisting in kills - paired with couple of teammates supporting. Current meta does not favor long ass rice farming, but still, hard carry fits her best.

    She is NOT a hard carry lategame. She MAY be, but her skillset is subpar compared to other lategame monsters: Void, PL, TW (anticarry), etc etc.

    She has all the ganking skills, so if you're playing a 35min creep farming PA you'll fall behind the enemy's carry. Instead, go for the 35min hero farming PA.

    phase/pt+MoC+Hotd and gank building bkb basher and extend into Abyssal/Satanic as luxury. Every time I see a bfury PA, I die inside a little.

    She can't do either role particularly well. Best build is generally a repick.

    Except mortred is the second fastest battlefury farmer after AM.

    You can build her 2 ways.

    Phase pms oov basher bkb abyssal
    Phase pms bfury bkb abyssal

    Throw in a vlads satanic etc... As situation accounts for it.

    Too all the people saying she scales like Shit as a hard carry are ignorant. U get a free bugged daedelus passive evasion low cd slow u can lh woth early if need be and a 100% ias blink .

    Dafuq u smoking.

    Her biggest weakness is heavy disable teams and aggressive trilanes and soloing early versus heroes like clinkz who.1v1 are going to zone you away from your creeps

    obviously she is late game ultra carry, possibility of 3 shotting any hero if she crits...

    furthermore, most people don't see her as a decent counter to PL after picking up BF, but its almost as good as tiny with ags

    In a ganking oriented build of hers, would you expand in to bkb or cranium basher first? or is it completely situational.

    So I get a worse version of backtrack, a crit that is only slightly better than other crits, and a blink that can only target units (and can't even target magic immune ones)?

    Compare that to actual hard carry abilities like a 5 second aoe disable, or creating illusions that attack every enemy hero, a huge army of illusions, or any number of aoe attack abilities.

    If having a lot of single-target damage makes a hero a hard carry, then I guess Lina would be the hardest carry because she gets 5 free hyperstones right? Or OD, since he does one of the highest amounts of DPS in the game?

    It's easy to say.
    It's hard to play.

    Early-mid game she can gank pretty well with cheap items like PB/MoC
    Late game she transfers to the state of hard-carry,but she needs strong items to reach there.
    As she buys powerfull damage items,her critical combined with cleave deals massive AoE damage.Especially,Magnus is the best ally for her:he gives her damage and cleave and she can get easily rampages if the enemy team is caught by Reverse polarity.

    Good Mortred come online way earlier than late game carries like Void or Medusa. Actually a good Mortred can start making a real difference right from level 6 by ganking around the map.

    This is the build i use on Mortred :

    repick my fav item i love it

    or phase / bfury / appropriate dps item for teh situation / bkb / mkb or abyssal
    She's pretty straight forward
    Also satanic is decent but way way overrated

    That is, no offence, an awful build.

    You can hard rice her with a battlefury, but she becomes pretty unimpressive once her bkb goes down to 5 seconds and she starts being kited. The hard carry build is trying to get to BKB, battlefury, Satanic, MKB, BoT, abysmal babe.

    The other build is a gank heavy build that capitalizes on her early success due to 20% evasion and 100% IAS before supports start getting forcestaffs and ghost scepters and Bullshit. Its phase MoC Basher bkb and can extend to either the crazier MoM or the more conservative abysmal for anti-carry carrying.

    Defends on your enemies lineup. For me BKB, Abysmal, Satanic.
