Why? He already has invis. Maybe it gives extra dmg, but with that money you could buy sb or sols or riftshards...
Suggestion to improve the replay system:
Ppl want perma invis..
Sometimes I wonder why guys like boobs. Then I grab my own tits and remember why.
I think most people picked it up before the shieldbreaker buff, haven't seen it rushed at all lately. The idea was to use it along with sandstorm and mirage to build up wanderer charges after every hit.
It's still a good item because of genjuro.
I'll never forget what I felt that day...
I, want to be a Hero of Justice!
The bonus damage from shroud stacks with his passive, so its essentialy a 250 bonus damage (which is ALOT). Making him able to use mirage strike, shroud strike, then mirage strike again.
With this combo, he can kill people by himself, and quickly aswell (before the tp's come in).
The ability to combo people down to 10%, or to actually kill them alone, is a big deal.
It's definitely possible if you know how to play well.
Yep exactly what Ripoff said, killing smb before he can cast anything is a big deal.
It works great >1700 or so. Invis>Autoattack>Mirage>Autoattack>Ult.
Usually by the time you land that 3rd attack, they are desperately trying to stun you. The shockwave ult will typically kill them; if they are smart they will just run instead of attacking your ult, in which case sandstorm slows them down and makes it easier to land more hits.
Noobs don't buy dust or eyes, so this will get you repeated immortals. Against any competent players, the shroud is a bad idea.
