Now, see it was always my understanding that carnivorous scaled really well with attack speed. Since it's a fixed % of health per hit, thus on predator you want to jack your attack speed up. So it's steam boots and insanatarious then late game demonic breast plate.
Now, in my last game I had a predator who was absolutely adamant that the best thing to do on predator was to rush shrunken head and use +dmg phase boots and just ignore attack speed all together.
He was absolutely insistent that this was the best thing to do on predator and that getting any +attack speed gear at all was a waste of his time.
Late game he did get a elder parasite, though I'll give him that.
I do get Shrunken Head as Predator on occasion, generally only if they have a very large percentage of magic damage/disable, and there's no limit to how much magic immunity is useful. I don't do it often, though.
[6:25:16 PM] Anthony Nguyen: yeah but people like u and in your shoes dont have the "right" to say its good because u dont even know wut dota is like
[6:26:12 PM] Anthony Nguyen: btw the only thing thats gonna matter
[6:26:15 PM] Anthony Nguyen: is the competitive scene
[6:26:23 PM] PHZ: dont have the right?
[6:26:25 PM] PHZ: not sure if nerd
[6:26:32 PM] Anthony Nguyen: n tbh, no offense, ur prob not even gonna get known by anyone
did this about once or twice aswell, against a disable heavy team u can stonehide -> shrunken -> stonehide which equals ~ 20sec of magic immunity
He needs -armor because Carnivorous deals Physical damage. He gets enough attack speed from his ultimate.
Shrunken head is pretty situational on him; good, but situational - in most cases it is overkill.
Shrunken is just godlike versus most teams. Stone -- shrunken -- stone, your magic immune the whole fight. You can initiate with ez. At around mid-game, you just cant be brought down in a teamfight, since their carry aint hard (yet). Plus it gives good dmg and hp.
Seriously, it's beastly. That, and insanitarius.
