Ghost marchers seems viable on pred but like said before he gains alot from aspd. His aspd is really low and even with marchers you will still have a hard time killing people on the run due to the fact that he his autoattack takes forever to go off witouth increased aspd. I'd go with Steamboots and then get shieldbreaker->frostburn so that he can have decent mobilty (thats the weak point of the hero really).
I usually build her according to the dps andromeda guide.
1 skill comet, max W, max E, take ulti @ 6,11,16.
items: sb OR sols, genjuro OR geos. If needed barrier idol OR nullstone.
IF there is no other support on the team, then i will build her for support.
If there is no real carry on the team, then she can fill that role.
yes to hatchet. core item: Nullfire Blade. Targert squishy heroes to get level&item advantage, it should be a ride in the park by the time they get eye. If the enemy team doesn't have at least 2 squishy heroes nh should not be picked at all.
2. I usually go for farming item first. then go for that minitstun item(forgot name), after that lifesteal: symbol of rage. if the game continues 1 more luxury item for damage.
1.ghost marchers, to catch up to the target 4 the webshot.
2. Fire sword can be first item, but you could also go for stealth first, for some suprise attacks, specially if the enemy team jungles a lot.
3. after geo's/genjuro (depending on what u chose) -> lifesteal -> more damage (pref agility based items).
lifesteal, lifesteal, lifesteal.
full lategame itembuild would be: steamboots, runed axe, symbol of rage, shrunken?(if u need it, or nullstone?), savage mace, wingbow/genjuro/geo's/doombringer
There are just soo many ways to play shadowblade. He has the potential to deal the most damage possible in a single hit, 6000+.
U should only go 4 the str build if there is no other tank on the team, otherwise, int build deals a lot more damage.
shadowblade is one of the only heroes I'm confident on taking on a farmed predator with.
I would write more, but i'm @ work, so must keep it short.
