Since for now his recommended items is not complete, for anyone who has played with him or have messed around in practice mode, what do you think good item builds for him would be? Or even his skill build?
as in my other thread:
Skill: Mine, slow, mine, slow, mine, ult, mine, max slow, ult, max dust, stats, ult.
Items: Chalice> Bottle> Steamboots > Nullstone/Sacstone/hellflower> Sotm> whatever you didnt pick above.

His second skill truly seems utterly useless. The damage it does is very close to non-existant and the slow is ridiculous before level 3-4 where it becomes bad, but not entirely useless. His bomb seems great and his dust seems pretty bad. Ulti seems interesting but not great.
Boom dust looks like a cheap and effective ability for harassing melee heroes in lane. Boom dust them, then auto attack, rinse and repeat.
I really like Force Staff, Staff of the Master, and Cyclone on him. He doesn't really get into the thick of things and he's not really an autoattack hero, so I didn't go for Nullstone, Sac Stone, Frostfield, or Hellflower. Kuldra's is also probably a good choice -- can't go wrong with a Kuldras.
Dust is really good, spam it on someone who's taking bombardment or any kind of damage (your archer warlock shooting someone? dust for extra damage) or abuse it against a melee to ck and harass. Use it while you have an autoattack flying towards someone etc. His aoe slow/nuke is pretty awful though.
I find chalice is a good starting item for him along with boomdust.
Try to rush sotm asap.
my opinion about this hero
1.Skill 1 aoe cast is quite small and 10% dmg every 2 sec is too long
2.SKill 2 Act as a cheap nuke
3.Skill 3 is quite inefective
4.Ult is quite fun

ive played him the whole day and i must stay sacrificial stone is the best choice after that you can go staff of mastery. also ghost marchers are nice because of the speed early game (since he is kinda squishy)
He doesn't need a buff at all. he's without a doubt rediculously op at the moment if you play him right.
Boomdust is insane if maxed early, especially with his slow as well, the synergy gives him so much aoe burst damage he shines early and mid game, his bomb is nice, and very annoying, but probably my least favourite of his skills. His ult makes good for some funny kills, especially with sotm. its also a GREAT initiation.
I've had 4 games with him, and each one gone scores like 8-2,6-1,12-2 and so on. too bad HoN's stat recordings stuffing up >.< I would of loved to add those games.
Just played a my first round with him. I agree with what most of the other people have said, dust is meh, but DONT underestimate his first skill, it's freaking deadly. Especially if you arrive to a team fight late, toss that badboy in and detonate it, and the team doesn't know wtf just happened. Can completely turn it around.
I say get steamboots > marchers, as the usefulness is much more valuable. The health is nice early on, and you can switch it over to int later on as mana is one of his biggest issues. Chalice > Sacstone/nullstone (depending on enemy team) > SOTM
Still haven't found a very good use for that third skill...
I haven't gotten a chance to play or see him in action yet, but it seems like boom dust would be great if you had Lego on your team. Toss a couple charges on him and then have him PK in and taunt.
I haven't played him yet but I must say he looks retardedly overpowered.
Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive(PSR), but what they conceal is vital("true" PSR).
ITT: People who don't see that Boom Dust is better than the slow, and better than the Sticky Bomb unless you can skillshot it almost every time.
