read a guide
soul ring / bottle
Dagger as core
Read a guide please
Really OP, here are a few links:
Guide To Ownage - DotA Guides
YsR Guide To ES - DotA Guides
1,bottle/soul ring (prefer bottle)
gg branches (can convert to wand if applicable a.k.a. to many spamers)
3 any boots
- Start game: 1 salve, 1 tangoes set, 2-4 clarities, Obs/Chick if needed, gg branches.
- Wand, Bottle, Boots of Speed + 2xMantle of Intelligence or Int Treads. More Obs if needed
- More Obs
- Blade Mail, Vanguard, Pipe, anything...
For map versions 61 and 63? A bit outdated, isn't it?
-boot of travel/power tread
This, DotA constantly changes, to refer someone to an old and possibly flawed guide is lazy and lame. I'd rather see this type of thread on a strat forum than "who wins 1v1" shit.
Soul ring / bottle / blink are good items to go for, blink being core by mid game, at least bottle for early game. You can make do with boots of speed for a while, and if you do well in the first 5-6 minutes of the game, go for the soul ring to give imba fissure spam. Luxory items would be like shivas or guinsoo for the most part.

Dagger and then skadi.
Dagger *absolutely necessary*
Boots, Bottle, Soul ring, hp stuff
BoT, Soul ring, Dagger, Refresher/Battlefury
Lothars deso treads
START: some tangoes/clarities
NEXT: Bottle (or soul ring if you prefer that, maybe even both) + Boots
THEN: DAGGER / Phase or treads
THEN: Agas/shiva/guinso/whatever you want
For me dagger is more of a core than hp stuff =\
Personal preference though, on ES i dont get bracer and go on from
Bottle, boots, dagger, wand if needed.
Luxury= Shiva, Hex, Eul, Meka, Arcane, Vlad,AC, depending on what your team needs.
boots - phase
at start i prefer the common branches, 1 salve, 1 tango and at least 2 clarities.
no circlet, because the only item im going to finish besides boots and bottle is a magic wand.
if your patient in farming and not spamming fissure on creeps there is no need for nulls.
If you dont spent much time on the same lane, get a bottle and roam for runes.
a soul ring can work aswell, but its costy for your little gold pool. still offers good lane control with spamming fissure though.
if youre in alot of fights, breaking ganks and gaining an advantage with your team, the gold for your dagger will come from the tier 1 towers you destroy.
sometimes you got it in 15min and the other time you still struggle for your dagger past 25min. it depends - mainly on how much you die and how good your team does. anyway, straight farming for an 8-10min dagger is an option on a weak lane. i dont like the risk though.
anything past dagger should involve some sort of survivability and another disable eul/guinsoo or shivas.
Well, earthshaker only got aghas since then, and a slight change to his ulti in 6.66. Basically, no groundbreaking changes. For starters, those guides will do just fine.
PTreads (INT/STR, change between when using spells)
Dagger / Lothar (depending if you want to supprise buttsecksrape-hit 500dmg with lothar+totem)
Aghanims / BFury (with Lothar)
Refresher / Bfury (with Lothar)
Shiva / BFury (with Lothar)
BFury / Buriza (with Lothar)
