    unit with 0 armor or below has the same EHP as its HP
    unit with negative armor takes additional damage by the formula:
    Damage Increase = 1 - 0.94 ^ (-armor)

    so if you use lvl 3 amplify damage (-16 armor) and stygian desolator (-7 armor) on a target with 1500 HP and 10 armor
    target's EHP got reduced to 1500 and takes 1 - 0.94 ^ (--13) = 55.2635% additional damage from physical attack

    The last item build I used went like Treads, Vanguard, Perse, Crystalys. All cheap 1.5~2.2K something gold tier items.

    I guess Buriza is good choice for late game then.

    I feel ac suits the job more than deso for slar, gives him -5 ARM aura, as to proc bashes and a huge amount of ehp bkb situational on him imho, as usually when playing him I want ppl to nuke and stun me after I amplified and crushed on target. Let their team blow all their powder on u while your team kills them

    Edit: hotd indeed is superior over vlad if you're getting ac since the armour aura don't stack
    I guess you should get one in some cases depending on team (if you're support with melee carry that osnt getting one

    I know this. By the way Stygian is -6 armour. Also I was looking at the difference between amplify damage and amplify damage + Stygian

    Purge for the slow before you ult then?

    It still doesn't make it smart. You use Amplify Damage first because of the amazing Cast Range, and Sight it provides. If you get a Diffusal Blade, you will have to make sure Amplify Damage is off cooldown, so that you could use it right after Purge.

    And plus, Diffusal Blade provides abysmal bonuses for a hero like Slardar. Feedback in general is pretty mediocre, and mostly used on Illusion Heroes. The reason why you get Diffusal Blade is due to its wonderful Active Spell, Purge. But there is no point, as Slardar has excellent Chasing Skills, and the Debuff from Purge is does not synergize with Amplify Damage. The ONLY reason you would EVER get Diffusal Blade on Slardar is if you were facing an Enemy like Warlock.

    and if that's the case I would rather ask my ally Mirana to make Diffusal herself and allow myself to swallow a whole Infernal immolation combo in the meanwhile

    unless it was an actual 1v1 game I wouldn't do it myself

    Sure,viable,but I don't see why you would get it when Slardar could make much more with attackspeed and piercing magic immunity.If somehow you are already very tanky and you need to carry,sure,why not.

    You actually don't get BKB if you're planning to tank

    Slardar as a pure tank is something really bad,considering he has no EHP skills neither skills that give disadvantages by attacking him.It's much more effective building him as a secondary carry because of Bash and -15 armor.

    I can't believe no one mentioned Heavens Halberd for Slardar.:facepalm: The Strength for tanking, the maim and the evasion makes it one of the sickest item for him IMO. A lot would recommend vanguard but i feel it doesn't scale well in the late game like heaven's halberd would.:eek:n2long:

    Slardar is all about dagger+bkb+crystalis, if you can lifesteal like mad with your dominator too better..

    It's a new item and nobody realizes how good it is.

    Evasion + health on the same item is really awesome.

    Dagger, BKB and survivability items are far more important. And AC is usually the best follow-up damage item because it gives both more IAS for more bashes and more -armour which synergises with your ult.
