Hi i'm really new to DotA. I bought warcraft for two reasons; my mom hate WoW and won't let me play it (too 'evil'), and because i heard how cool DotA is. I've played a few games on an AI map, and i played with some people online. My question is who is the best ranged character for me to use, and what items are good to use with him/her? I really like the game, but so far i'm getting my butt kicked. I've found i like ranged characters the best, so any help choosing one to practice with would be awesome.
