Which items should Rikimaru get?
Vlads, Sange & Yasha, and Bfly would work just fine.
Diffusal blade. 16 total charges makes him great hero killer/ganker.
I'll go diffusal over SNY.
1. vlads is a support item. dont get it with riki...
2. sange and yasha is good on riki but diffusal is better (more dmg and purge)
3. before you get your orb: 2-3 wraiths and treads
If im playing Riki i buy Diffusial/pt/wraths. After core butterfly/heart/manta
SnY isn't terrible. But purge is delicious.
Didn't really add much to this post but go treads/wraiths/diffusal for core =D
I go usualy 3 wraths, Vlads(if noone is making one ofc) then SnY Luxury -> Butterfly/Manta
I saw riki with maelstorm
Rikimaru is the first ever hero i picked in my entire life. He is also the first ever hero I used that I owned so much. For Riki, I get boots/tango/flask, I then upgrade boots to pt, so he attacks so much more faster.^^ After that I stay in the lane and let my teammates gank and push, because riki has the advantage of being permanently invisible( sort of ), the enemy dont bother trying to kill me since they know they cant kill me and is a waste of their time. After I am able to farm, I usually get a butterfly and after that I can take on even the most tough heroes.( blink, smoke, atack 4 times, blink, dedz )^^.
But for competitive games, Riki should get diffusal blade since its a lot more easier to build up than butterfly, and the purge will help you in ganks. ( blink, purge/smoke, smoke/purge, atack 4 times, blink, ownage) ^+^
core items for low level games like garena: pt, butterfly
core items for high level games: pt, diffusal
please check my dragon, help it grow a lot faster!!!
( Power Treads, 2 - 3 Wraths, Diffusal // Manta. This is your core
Power Treads for burst power when you initiate
2 - 3 Wraths for pure stats
Diffusal for awesome-purge if they happen to escape
-> Manta for more burst power when you initiate )
Highly unorthodox, but I usually get MoM with SA and own with it. Treads, 3 Bracers, MoM, and butterfly is all you really need. Seeing as SA is a super imba hero with stupid imba damage, you don't really need alot of fancy items. MoM does what S&Y and Vlads do combined, minus the Maim.
couple of wraiths, treads, diffusal lvl2, manta bfly/heart
Diffusal > Manta > Butterfly.
Manta is skippable if going Butterfly straight is possible. For earlygame, go Wraiths and Treads.
core item : pt, 2 wraiths, BF and diffusal
luxury item : HoT, Butter.
why BF? well, you can farm like crazy to get luxury item with BF and backstab
But over all most people will have butterfly in the core items for Rikimaru. ^+^
PT Diffu_upgraded Manta Bfly
but i never finish my game with holding a butterfly , it's way to easy to win a game with lvl 2 diffusal on riki
I still go 3 or 4 Wraith Bands, Power Treads and Diffu afterwards. Always had good success with it.
Mask of madness is damn stupid....
no agi - no plusdamage
escapemechanism no need
dont need burst attackspeed because of no %-chance-abilities.
