Where is portal key?
he is my favorite hero without a doubt...best buddy by far is KRAKEN...pebbles or andro are good to but omg....a good kraken ult with yours is almost a garunteed genocide every time...strategy is perfect..get 1st nuke hand stuff full ASAP and use with ult EVERY TIME use grapple to catch runners or to escape like a pro..my build for him was in this order though...
dieing a lot strat:
complete boots..this shouldn't take long with your amazing damage
HELM OF BLACK LEGION
literally whatever u want..i suggest runed axe, mock or simply begin to stack behemoths heart ...my record in a non em game at 60 minuts was 3746 hp with RIDICULOUS hp regen...this guy is awesome
and legit...if u do not have a buddy to get you into the fight..blink is verrrry good....

Please, don't ever get Wingbow on a non-agility character. That's just ****ing retarded.
Buy the courier at the beginning of the match. This magically frees you from the responsibility of buying wards.
I'm starting to love this hero, yes he might need some changes here and there but overall he is very good. I consider him a roamer/ganker and nothing else as that's what his abilities give us.
Skill Build (What I generally go for):
1. Infernal Instability
3. Infernal Instability
5. Infernal Instability
6. Gauntlet Blast
7. Infernal Instability (maxed)
9. Grapple / Cripple
10. Cripple / Grapple
11. Gauntlet Blast
16. Gauntlet Blast
Item Build: (this isn't the order you should get them in, just listing them)
Fortified Bracelet (Early game stats, can be replaced later on)
Helm of the Black Legion / Shaman's Headdress / Behemoth's Heart (depends on the opponents)
Sacrificial Stone / Null Stone (depends on the opponents)
Ring of Sorcery (?)
I think ghost marchers, bottle, portal key and Shrunken Head is a given for gauntlet as it provides him with mobility, regen and magic immunity. I feel he is more of a tanky type ganker (or whatever lol) therefore something along the lines of HOTBL / Shaman's Headdress (depends on the opponents) and Sac Stone would give him both nice amount of health but hp/mana regen which he really needs to be as a ganker.
I'll leave it at that and get ready for the flames

he's a ganker. Grapple is awesome and levels in that also gives more range.
Ghost marchers, power supply, bottle, shroud, codex. Am I the only person in this world who can actually play Gauntlet?
OK seriously I can see where all u guys are coming from but leave this guy alone and stop flaming him he created a guide that people can or cannot decide to follow. If people try this and think it blows and doesn't work hey guess what they wont do it anymore and they return to strategy to find a diff. guide and tbh yeah there are some ridiculous builds to every hero but giving gaunt attack speed isn't so far fetched his passive is crazy. that is all.
on topic GauntElakor i really like Ur guide
I agree that portal key is good on gauntlet.
His hook is now pretty much stupid since you can't hook minions.
This means you can't escape much with it anymore unless you have a smart teammate.
ITT: 90% of the player base making horrible suggestions with no idea what the heroes role is or how to play him. With a scant 10% with a clue getting drowned out by the retarded masses.
I hope no one is following this guide with the updated Gauntlet...
