hi guys,Since i started to play with predator, i've been good results but i need some advices about items... normally i pick hatched, shield and 1 rune after> Steamboots> Icebrand> FrostBurn> ShunkenHead> Daemoniac> Abyssal... one friend told that "buy brutalizer instead icebrand". it's viable?
Because of how Carnivouros works (7% of current HP), Predator should get attackspeed to compliment that and some survivability to stay in the fights.
You can stack some -armor and damage on top of that to deal a great amount of sustained damage.
Predator is however slow. A Frostburn is good to keep your enemies close enough to hit, while giving some attackspeed and survivability. Sol's ullwark into Deamonic gives the armor and attackspeed.
Insanitarius is however a good starting item. Insanitarius gives 56 (?) damage for about 2.2k gold, which is insane.
Carni gives you the lifesteal to sustain Insanitarius, so it is a GREAT item on predator.
For rather weird but very powerfull items I would recommend Charged Hammer (Attackspeed and Damage), Frostwolf's Skull for survivability and sustained damage, Brutalizer if you have enough attackspeed to really anti carry and anti tank.
Just played with a friend and went empath predator. I did the insanitarius -> elder parasite build. IT WAS SO STRONG!! I was laughing at it and was like "You're kidding mate. Insnitarius WITH ELDER PARASITE?" and he was like "Yeah it's really underrated".
steamboots -> sols -> shieldbreaker should be your start in every game except you really have 0 farm. After that, it heavily depends on your opponents. Dont mind picking up a shrunken head if they have 80+ % magic damage. If they are built rather defensive, finish demonic and go savage afterwards. If they only have auto-attacks, dont mind picking up a wingbow, might help for that.
To the elder Parasite Insanatarius build: Good enemies will just kite you to death with tablets until stonehide is gone and then have fun with your elder-parasite. Might work in lower MMR-regions, but i wouldnt recommend it.
If your team has good stuns/slows get shieldbreaker. Otherwise frostburn is a tad bit better since it gives you the chance to actually get in a few hits, instead of just chasing them around. Same idea with steamboots/ghost marchers. Steam are superior on pred, but if your team has very few stuns/slows, you might want to consider ghost just to keep up and continue hitting.
Sols has good synergy with his ult and his stone hide.
So... i'll try many ways to play with preda exception to jungle... instead someone the team asked to go too the jungle... and i will try to pick TDL but she is hard carry right? ill be able to play with TDL? tks for all tips and ways to play with preda...
