Hello, this is my first guide, and it will be about Electrician as a hybrid. The guide is meant for any type of 5v5, recommended is the standard map 5v5 non-EM however.
The finest Legion spies learned mere months ago of a mad archaeologist whose unnatural thirst for knowledge led him into a forbidden pact with the Hellbourne. His discoveries have been used to forge Shocktroopers, men fused with Ancient technology, pulsing with violent energy. These horrifying hybrids bear a tank of liquid lightning upon their backs, and they wield its contents as both sword and shield.
Now since you are a hybrid, you will have various choises of starting items.
Very self-explanatory. Mana and Health potions for early game regen of course. Courier if no other support gets it. Minor Totems for the early game stats. This build is pretty standard.
A very versatile build, due to the fact that you are able to buy 2 of the items in the outpost. With verstaile I mean, you can delay the two top items for some early regen/stats, makes you even more early game "tank". Iron Buckler to make you more beefy, and able to withstand harasses. Minor Totem to fill and early game stat. Mana Battery is just overall a good item, and can be upgraded later on. The reason why you don't need mana, is because you got a skill that can "steal" mana from heroes.
Also standard build, where you concentrate on early game stats and regen. This build is simple and self explanatory.
A starting build where you get some decent ammount of stats, and armor also, which you will upgrade in to Ring of The Teacher at the outpost. This build can be used for rushing one of your core items. If you feel confident with your team setup vs the team you're facing, you should go for this. Because it is overall decent.
Now making your core. Your first item after your starting items should be :RingOfTheTeacher: and afterwards buy a :MajorTotem:. Notice that you can buy both the Major Totem and Scarab for The Ring of the Teacher at the outpost. after these two items, farm the creep waves as good as possible, use energy absorption for farming since it's a aoe nuke, with no mana cost - if you hit all the creeps you'll even gain some mana. After you got 1k you should buy :NeophytesBook: and the recipe for :NomesWisdom:. After your Nomes Wisdom buy Marchers, to give you some movement speed. We don't want to upgrade it yet, since you have a ulti that can speed yourself up for some seconds.
Now if your team lacks disables buy another :Scarab: and a :Manatube: you will be aiming for :Stormspirit: finish it up after you farmed the last 1.6k. However if your team does have stuns/disables you should be aiming for Sacrificial Stone, which will give you alot of hp/mana and regen of the before mentioned. Now you may finish upgrading your boots. I would either go for the :Steamboots: or :PlatedGreaves: depends if your team needs armor or a tank. And if you can survive without +10 Strength from the :Steamboots:. If you bought Minor Totems/Mana Battery/Pretender's Crowns these should be upgraded into Power Supply and Bracelets.
The Nome's and Stormspirit will enable you to support and tank. You will have quite a chunk of mana regen which will make your Energy Shield very useful. And which will let you spam your helpful skills. You won't need that much strength yet, because you will have a Power Supply and 1/2 Bracelets. Together with the Mana Regen from your core, you will be a very beefy Electrician.
Well, first of all. Let's check what his different skills do, and what is the different possibilities of each one of them.
