considering flux is range, semi carry, initiator, ganker and semi tank, was wondering whats the ideal flux build developing as of the moment
how do u build flux if you're:
3. tri lane
what items do u get at:
1. early game
2. mid game
3. late game
and aside from the recommended items, whats your experimental build for flux on leveling and item build?
I met a Flux with 3 crushing claws for starting items. Spaming his pull then some very powerful auto-attacks. It was very painful (i had a squishy).
:Insanitarius: seems to be an interesting pick up. Haven't tried it first-hand yet, though.
im thinking :FrostfieldPlate: :Portalkey:
like blink in, ulti pull then activate frost?
coz its cheaper than frost skull and u get the bonus armor
Gotta say though, that ulti of his is absolutely amazing. I love playing behemoth and the fact that flux is a popular hero atm makes me all that much happier.
Now if only people would know how to play him.. that would absolutely make my day.
+ is one of my favorite flux combos. but 95% of the time flux is useless in pub games.
I will admit he is very situational. But he can dominate the lane stage extremely well. I prefer him as a lane hero. Most people I see level his pull/push first, which is not good at all, I prefer to lvl him like this:
3:Polarity swap/release (if you need some range or need to push sm1 get polarity swap if not wait till 5)
6:Magnetic Surge/Ult (Ask yourself if you need your ult or not)
He's a great hero. I haven't lost a mid lane with him versus any melee hero yet. Kraken might put up a good fight.
Somewhat of a troll build but I rush a :AlchemistBones: on him. With that in hand - haha - its easy to farm the rest of your stuff even if you have a horrible mid-game.
Steamboots or marchers, but typically go steam.
Now, :FrostwolfsSkull: is good for his ulti - but man its a slow road to farm it up if you aren't careful. Most annoying thing for me is that his ulti doesn't put PKs on cooldown - only really noticed after a failed assist on a gank on legionnaire.
While I have yet to build it, because I have not be against heavy nukes, a :Nullstone: does provide survivability as well as +15 strength on a hero who benefits from it greatly. Also will address his mana issues.
By the end, for their carry, I will snag a :BarbedArmor: since he is so tanky and prone to be focused.
My normal pub-stomping build right now is: :AlchemistBones: which in turn rushed icebrand for a :FrostwolfsSkull::Steamboots::Portalkey:. After that it depends, I've gone a few things for the lulz like :Mock: but if you manage all your FWS, boots, and pk. might as well opt for :BehemothsHeart: since you are obviously destroying the enemy team or free-farming.
As an aside, people will rage against it - but interestingly the hatchet's +12% translates into a ring of the teacher's +6dmg (against creeps) early game and a considerable amount more mid/late game. So, really helps you last hit and speed up your farm. I begin the game like so: 1x:RunesOfTheBlight: :LoggersHatchet: :CrushingClaws: :MinorTotem: :MinorTotem:
:Insanitarius: :FrostwolfsSkull: or :Portalkey: :FrostfieldPlate: :RestorationStone:
aemonicBreastplate :SymbolOfRage: :Riftshards:
key words: ranged strength
he doesnt need another slow -.-
he has one that can slow for 70% already.
pkey and nullstone are core, and of course, just pick him if you have a team fo follow up.
i build him like my old huskar build. he is a str hero with abilities that benefit from str. i been starting with with either 3 or 4 claws. (i substitute runes of blight if i think imma need it before i can have courier bring it) i then either build steamboots or finish my 4 bracers. with those stats bonus u can easy out last hit pretty much any hero (except maybe dw).
skills: i get 3-2-1-3-3-4-3-1-1-1-4-2-2-2...stats ult.... or u can max 2 instead of 1 first. ur choice.
early core items:
3 or 4 bracers
from that point on i either farm up pk or frostwolf.
hearts!! (as i said before stats help soooo much.)
possible item build would be substitute frostwolf for frostfield plate (but i have not tried yet)
criticism is appreciated but dont thrash my build... i have done really well with this so far.
I'm definitely thinking it's a priority to max his range, 350 is horrible, 400 is barely an improvement... but 550 really isn't bad
