    As a first item? No.
    After boots? No.
    After core? No.
    As luxury item? No.
    Get it if you went 10:0 in 10 minutes? No.

    No.

    No. If they manage to kite you and kill you (and they should), you lose everything. Even an average pub team is skilled enough to isolate and kill a single hero if they have the motivation.

    it depends on the situation (from my opinion).. if you farm-gank easily and more, you could provide divine to leoric. it does the same to other heroes, too

    to get rapier on any hero you need:
    Aegis
    BkB
    heart

    something like a rushed deso+dagger (a bit more expensive but you know) or something would be much more devastating.

    What would an early divine do that an early radiance can't do better (for a cheaper price as well)?

    240 more bonus damage maybe?

    Its definitely legit in pubs- both times I played Leoric in dota 2 I went for this strat, and both times it was successful. Once you get rapier rosh immediately afterwards, then throne ASAP. As long as you stick with the team you are pretty much invincible.

    +240 damage on a single hero while rad deals 30 magical damage (after reductions) to all enemy units in a huge aoe and it also does not drop on death. Oh not to mention leoric is melee so... you know the rest.

    Nope only works on range heroes, like clinkz and windrunner

    Divine is THE SINGLE MOST RELIABLE LARGE SCALE DAMAGE OUTPUT ITEM.

    But the risks are simply way too high for anyone to consider buying it, much less rush it.

    Leoric with aegis can carry it without worrying too much. He just needs to stick with him and he'll be fine

    My starting items is QB gauntlets tanggos clarities.. My core is Threads then Divine and then Bkb and then buyas much divines as I could.

    Will only work if all your enemies have less than one brain cell. And if they do, it's much more fun rushing other lolbuilds.

    +1

    CAN DEFINITELY WORK IF LEORIC HAS 3 LIVES OR A VERY SYNCHRONIZED TEAM. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THOUGH IS THAT YOU'LL BE SITTING ON AT LEAST 2400 GOLD FOR SOME PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE GETTING ANYTHING USEFUL.

    I CAN TELL YOU THAT IF I WERE ABLE TO MIMICK KUROKY WITH SHADOW FIEND/BOTTLE/SOUL RING/DIVINE IN A PUB, IT'S CLEARLY DOABLE WITH KING LEORIC !

    rushing it no, but it is viable after your core of some boot upg+cheap items+vanguard/armlet(would get vanguard if i`m aiming for a rapier) if your team is decent. getting a +300dmg in decent amount of time like mid-game and your team always moving with you means you shouldnt be losing team fights and in general the idea here i think would be to end the game asap once you get your rapier - you`ll be two hittting people after all.

    definitely not very legit in pubs since you`ll need good teamplay to pull it off.

    Make sure you're too tanky to die and have AT LEAST 3 lives + BKB, otherwise no.

    Even then, it's probably not a good idea. The moment your team loses a teamfight, you'll be surrounded 5 v 1, they'll kill you 3 times, and BAM free Divine for them and you lose the game. Even Radiance is a better option for straight out damage.

    This will probably only work if you are already stomping the enemy, so i will asuming you are something like 6-0 and owning the mid lane by minute 10.

    Personaly i prefer to go for some sort of farming item. A 11-12 minute radiance or Mjolnir helps out much more than a quick divine IMO. The reason why is because mjolnir or radiance will increase your farming and pushing abilities while still making you able to produce an enormous amount of kills.

    TL;DR Viable just for the lulz, otherwise no.
