Ok, i really like the idea of the blood hunter, i've played a few games and i've read the few guides on this forum.
However, ive run into a few problems.
On the forum, each guide is basically met with "this is ****, learn to play BH and delete this rubbish guide" or some such.
In game, i find it hard to be REALLY usefull outside of ganks. I seem to die too quickly, and im not sure if i should be going pure damage (i.e wingbow) or going to lifesteal aura. Lifesteal "feels" right on blood hunter but i dont know if its actually best.
What im really asking for most is a good item guide for blood hunter. As the forum varies in ideas a lot and i dont know where to start.
At the moment im going:
Obligitory starting items (runes, pieces or recipes, minor totems ect)
Abyssal skull (this first because of mana regen)
Helm of the black legion
Is this ok? What can make it better? I seem to bge struggling most late game, where im convinced BH should be better.
You also do not need life steal ... as you get large amounts of life back from last hitting creeps / heroes.
I usually run Steam boots + 3 bracers then rush mock
Edit: realize your damage should already be pretty high by mid game due to your first skill which gives +80% damage. Cast your ult + first skill on yourself (if there arent any dangerous casters around) and have at it.
The reason why you wouldn't get black legion is it doesnt scale well into late game for what your role is. Bloodhunter isnt there to be absorbing all the damage, even though he does take damage you shouldn't be taking enough of it. Bloodhunter is much more suited and should be much better at doing tons of damage and receiving the health back from a kill.
If you're really worried about your HP just go bracers, but you should be very well off doing soulscream rings.
