Can anyone suggest side-lane build order? I normally get 2xtotems, 1x health pot, 1x food, +3 str, +3 int and build the blood chalice since it's crazy strong.
From there I struggle as to when I want boots, when I need shield (assuming I plan to make hotbl), when to get lifetube to keep the chalice spam going, whether or not I should get a power supply since it's a great item and whether or not I should get a hatchet.
Assuming I plan on playing very aggressive should that change up my buy order? (boots earlier)

Lv1 slow early since it gives 10% at all levels.
Max spines asap.
Ult when you can get it.
Atm Spines are broken and stack something like twice as much as normal.

I guess I should have made the topic read Buy order. I'm good on the skills .
Generally depends on whether your the one harassing or your the one being harassed. If you find yourself getting harassed level armordillo over spines, then show them the booty when they harass you, it wont be long before thy back off. Itemwise i usually go blood chalice, shield, lifetube then boots, then finish hotbl. Then your ready to gt your derp on!
Starting: 1x +3 str/int items, 1 Health pot, 3x runes, 2x minor totems.
Early: Blood Chalice (made from side lane), Power Supply (ferry recepie), orange boots.
Mid: Boots of choice, Helm of the black legion.
Late: Split helm, use lifetube first to make shamans headdress, then get axe of malphas to turn that beastheart into behemoth heart.
Luxury: Demonic Breastplate.
I like rushing shamans on occasion, the hp regen is sick, i dont feel the need to block alot really.

Machiavelli`- "If Maliken was a pornstar, then good for him! He sure is a good-looking dude. Come on now, no one likes girl-on-girl only porn and that dude would be a great choice for the guy who screws some hot looking sex maniac chic. I already supported him by buying the game, I would very much buy some xxx featuring Maliken too, if that brings some extra cash for S2games."

shield, mana battery, 3 trees
power supply, boots, blood chalice, get rid of shield
shamans headdress, sac stone
heart, whatever else u want
people who build hotbl on armadon are stupid, he has a passive that stacks a spine every 200 dmg, so you want to be absorbing dmg, not reflecting it
+3int, +3str, 1 trees, 1hp pot, 2 totems
blood chalice, shield if neccessary, boots, psupply
build shamans OR hotbl
B. The longer you live, the more spine bursts you can cast. A dead arma can't spine burst, so anything that keeps you alive is good. Hotbl provides arma with everything he needs and is disassembled later on for behe heart.
C. The mana regen on sac stone is unnecessary. By that point in the game, arma doesnt have mana problems.
So ill throw it back at you. Not having a helm of the black legion with your build up is stupid.
