I had a game as wildsoul the other day and I decided to pick up shield breaker after thunderclaw as core items
I did huge amounts of damage it was crazy.
Anyone else think shieldbreaker is a good pickup on good ol' crazy bear man?
sorry bro, no cool Sig for you, too many infractions.
Formally known as `SOBRAVE (bad habit of getting a name change every 2 months or so)
Shield breaker would really depend. It is a good item none the less, but there are better items on wild soul depending on enemy heroes and so forth. And for shield-breaker to have any good affects, I would assume if it was on you that you would be in ranged form. If you were in melee form, you may not be able to attack your enemies, unless you get close, which in that case, you might die. A mock, standard item, would always be the best if you can farm it early in my opinion.
It can work just fine: is one of my regular DPS Wildsoul builds on him, and I find it wrecks people HARD, you're DPS is so freaking high. You farm incredibly fast because your high DPS, and you eventually put on your bear to make room for even more items (/ )
Shieldbreaker+Sol's early on works so well with Wildsoul because Wildsoul's buff gives him the attack speed he needs to use Shieldbreaker EXTREMELY well even early on because he gets free attack speed to take full advantage of that negative armor. and Wildsoul is the only hero who can leisurely switch between range and melee, so he can make the most use out of + combo (which Abyssal can be on Booboo), just switch to melee to heal when necessary (and he gains +800 life when in melee form to make it easy to survive even with a squishy Shieldbreaker build).
Just keep in mind when you're farming, you want to use your BEAR FORM constantly to speed up your farm-rate as Wildsoul kills stacks/creepwaves much faster in Bear form. and it also helps keep you healed with Shieldbreaker because of the Abyssal skull you should be getting for Booboo.
Lastly, also keep in mind that Wildsoul is a freakin' monster pushing/backdoor hero, especially with + in your item set. Take full advantage of this and fly around the map downing towers in like 5-10 seconds while people won't even be able to stop you because you can just bail at like max movement speed (unlike Warbeast, Wildsoul can keep his movement extremely high constantly).

FOR ALL THAT IS HOLY~!
Don't worry guys, Lodestone won't be getting picked up in competitive, your balance forum regulars have assured it in this Lodestone balance thread ;)
