does anyone has a comment with glacius and barbed armor ?
I think it could help a lot
lol guide is so not updated. replace ghost marchers with either greaves or steamboots now.
Also- make an update for casting ice imprisonment on allies.... whatever use that is...
I really can't agree with you in almost anything...
First of all, where is your Mekansm? It is very useful on glacius because you will be in the middle of the fight disabling and ultying and healing allies around. And that prevents greaves. Only useful boots for glacius are ghosts, because you won't need that str bonus from steamboots.
Second, don't max out presence right away, Glacius is not just an manaregenitem, he needs to take his own skills too. I prefer almost in every situation 1. imprisonment 2. precense 3. imprisonment 4. presence etc. ult whenever it is possible and blast before stats.
And why didn't you mention that you can cast imprisonment on allies? It is very good way to save your running low-hp ally to tower before he/she runs to enemies waiting between towers. -80% dmg is not something that should be jsut skipped wihout giving it a thought.
Btw. don't underestimate Glacius ult, it is stronger than it looks like, because no one gets out from the range (alive) if you just place it well. And don't go bying portal keys on glacius for christs sake... It is like getting assasins shroud on NH so he could gank better >.< Just don't worry, let enemies waste their stuns and go in and ult, it is not that hard, isn't it?
Ive saved loads of teammates with it, 80% damage reduction is a hell of a lot.
And by the way, it works on all damage, even true damage (tried it last game with succ, her 300 true dmg spell did sod all)
i just love the animation of the Ult of Glacius :P
but i love Glacius too.
thnx for that guide now i will rock the Battlefield ;D
What about staff of the master? Is it a luxury item to be made after shrunken and before portal ?
And how many bracers should we do? 2, 3 ?
Amen to that.lol guide is so not updated. replace ghost marchers with either greaves or steamboots now.
Everytime an allied hero gets pulled to a gank by andromeda, devourer or any other enemy pulling hero, ice imprisonment will actually save his life.Also- make an update for casting ice imprisonment on allies.... whatever use that is...
Also, when you are pushing against a tower. Order your tank unit to take ALL damage from the tower and then freeze him. His life regeneration (Hotb or just the 2 first items) will be greater than the damage he takes.
This thing really needs an update. I can't believe people say this is detailed when it's nothing but a mere scratch of a basic teamplay lesson ...
If this is detailed than Pred guides made by Diffusion are God like.

I am a fan of loathars as a first item (assassin's shroud, sorry still in dota mind set). The stealth on him makes it great for early ganks and also allows you to channel ult and loathars so you can get the most out of it. The extra damage also allows to farm the waves down even for your aoe nuke. After shroud i would go portal key, and basically port, ult, shroud. You become the initiator though with that setup.
just curios your item build says to get steamboots, but the team fight says to activate enchanted marchers. Which is it?
TOO BAD IT'S ME,
I've got an electric personality!
I like runnable build with that gives you a big chance to survive ganks if the enemy team has venge,crix,lion and/or someother aoe and target stuns.
It includes phase and lothar ihmo,a lot of spells can be dodged and it can be a good way to bait enemy into wasting spells that could be cast on your carry.
Lothar also gives you ability to channel your ult in invisibility.
It helps juke and chase.
Not to mention that if you get blink you will be ganking 24/7 so more then 2 bracers and staff of master you dont need more hp
And yet so many people don't get it.d even a mentally damaged monkey can level up a passive skill
Early game: He bought courier, he placed wards, he maxed aura, good support right, everybody loves him. -> He has very low money, because his farming capabilities are more then poor -> thundra blast lvl 1.
Mid game: He always placing wards, maxing ice impr. -> No farming capabilities -> no money. Very few kills with ulti. Easily to silence/stun his ulti. He starts dying in fights.
Late game: He is always placing wards... he has very low money, poor items, and lower level then others. Very fragile. In late game aura became less effective then early, mid game, what leads to game 4vs5.
