    Vlads AM has always been overrated.

    i dislike vlads more and more because you can't afford having it in 6 slot scenario. that being said I buy vanguard and raindrops for mana regen.

    My build on AM is, stout shield->RoH+boots into P treads. BF->Ring of health+raindrops into yasha, finish vanguard->manta. After this the common abyssal +bfly.

    Remember to swap out BF on Am when you're 6 slotted. I usually go for bloodthorn as it's the best dps item on AM when you abyssal someone.

    I'll chime in I guess.

    My build,

    Start: Stout Shield + 1 gg branch (ends up being used with tango for heal) + 2 tangoes sets + 1 healing salve

    Early: QB -> Boots -> Magic Stick

    Core progress: Power Treads -> Battle Fury -> Vanguard -> Echo Sabre (SAY WHAATTT!!! lol) -> Manta Style -> Finish Abyssal Blade

    Last Slot: Either Butter Fly (most of the time), or MKB (ex. enemy carry PA)

    Cookie cutter skill build,
    Mana Break: 2,4 (18,19)*
    Blink: 1,8,9,10
    Spell Shield: 3 (20,21,22)*
    Mana Void: 6,11,16
    *Most of the time, can vary. Rule of thumb max Mana break once Manta is finished, if against spell heavy lineup can max Spell Shield earlier.

    Flame away.

    there is no point in buying sabre on heroes that can utilize attack speed well. You mostly see this item on STR carries not agility. Raw +AS increase is way better on AM than guaranteed

    i agree with what enrico just said. you need to improve your comms skills. just because you are from SG + high mmr does not mean you expect ppl to read your mind.

    Okok. Is Double hit viable on am? Bf, double hit, then vanguard to basher????

    English is my 3rd language and I understood perfectly what he meant. I'm pretty sure most people on these forums have a better English understanding than I do, and would expect them to not have big issues understanding simple English.

    okok. so my other question? is double hit viable on aM?

    It's not good. It does a lot of everything (mana regen, DPS, HP) but not enough to justify a slot.

    That exchange between Zenotha and enrico is incredibly disappointing.

    Should've looked at this thread before I got rekt as AM a few days ago. Will check out the Vanguard first build, as it should help due to the chaos of my pleb-MMR games.

    I dunno I had absolutely no trouble understanding Zenoth LOL

    Me either. He tells a guy he's wrong and the guy goes all "WELL EXCUUUUUUSE ME MR. TI6." Turns out he was wrong and an actual quality poster has one less reason to go to PD.

    I buy Vlads on literally every hero. Can't go wrong with stats, mana regen, armor, damage aura, lifesteal, and hp regen!

    Vlads used to be almost a troll noob-trap item or at least an item for supports and heroes with summons, and now you see people build it on PA, Void... what times to be alive.

    Sven likes stats, mana regen, armor, damage aura, lifesteal, and hp regen, what hero doesn't.

    Every hero who cant afford to spend 2k gold on an item that does nothing in a proper manner...
