    Good guide here.

    Are you talking a 1 on 1 situation in regards to Viper? There are better heroes for that... Brood Mother, Bane Elemental, etc.

    If it is pub, wand, boots,bottle, then rush necro3/bot/dagger and rape.

    These are good items for him :

    - Dagon
    - Shiva
    - Guinsoo
    - Bloodstone (though it nerfed)
    - Aghanim / Refresher (Not recommended though...)
    - Kellen Dagger (Competitive usually)
    - If you want fun, go carry items ^^

    Farm a radiance early game, make sure to tell your team mates you're carrying them. So they give you lanes for yourself.

    Late game you will Radi+Treads+Vitality booster for HP. With finger of death+radi you are god like!

    Pub build:

    Start: Chicken (don't share), 1xTangoes, 1xClarity, 2xGGBranch

    Then: Ferry consumables as needed, complete Wand, Bracer, buy Boots of Speed, (optional: buy wards) (in any order you like). Always carry a tp.

    After that: Finish your boots (your choice, all are good for Lion). Buy dust if needed cause your teammates are noobs. Any other items on Lion are luxury. If you have that much money get wtf you like (an other hex (guinsoo), shivas, aghanims, dagon).

    Necrobook should be core, you'll get the most out of your disables with the minions and the str stats are very welcome.

    There are two builds.
    The comedy I'm solo mid in a pub build
    Boots-->Dagon 5-->Scepter

    The serious business roam at lv 1 ward bitch
    Chicken/wards/gg branch + consumables to start. --> Boots + bracers (but only if you are rich). THAT'S IT. Spend the rest on wards TPs maybe a bottle.

    Any build which costs more then 4k gold, is unrealistic.
    Lion shouldn't be farming much at all, game plan's to keep pressure on the enemy team, and gank, gank and gank.
    I'd favour roaming from level 6, since finger's just sweet, but you should gank earlier, if any opportunity arises.
    Magic Wand + Bottle + Boots is more then enough to support your ganking needs.
    Ward if your team requires a warder, and never ks unless necessary, giving your teammates the gold instead, since you don't need gold much.

    Possible item choices are Dagger, for mobility, but most will prefer the Guinsoo's, since hex is just that awesome.
    Necrobook and Eul's are considerable as well.
    But, of course, other then your Bottle + Magic Wand + Boots + Point Booster , the rest are all luxury.

    1v1 against viper you really have like no chance at all ^^ In a more serious game, Lion's role is generally ganker-support/wardbitch. So you arent supposed to be farming big items. Boots (usually pt str) wand 2 bracer and the other 2 slots for wards+consumables+tp.

    i always always always get a dagger in a pub. in a serious game, bottle/wand/bracers/bos/wards.

    for me the best item build for lion is:
    2-linkens sphere
    6-refresher orb

    In serious games, a Dagger is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, it's very game-dependent.

    wand, bottle, STR treads, dagger, hex/shiva/bkb/ghost

    throw in a force staff if you are a boss
