Doom/old abilities

Well, there are a few guides to lớn Lucifer. But, most of them suggest the tanker build và I couldn"t find one which showed the potential of Doom, which is probably the best ultimate in the game, with the tăng cấp of Aghanim"s Scepter. Hence, this attempt at writing a guide.

Doom Bringer is one of the few strength heroes which can be played as a pure tank or as a pure spellcaster. This guide is focussed on the spellcaster build for doom.
Hero StatsRange: 150 Move Speed: 300Primary: STRStr: 26 + 3.2Agi: 11 + 0.9Int: 16 + 2.1Damage: 53 - 69HP: 644Mana: 208HP Regen: 1.03Mana Regen: 0.65Attack Speed: 1.51 (+ 11% IAS)Armor: 3.5
As we can see, Doom has an extremely high strength gain. Although, the agi growth is less and hence the armor.
another point khổng lồ be noted is that although, doom has a decent enough intelligence gain to lớn cast his spells while tanking, it is not enough lớn repeatedly spam spells. Hence, lớn play doom as a spellcaster, intelligence/mana regeneration items are necessary.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Strengths:1. Late game natural tank even without strength items.2. Learn LVL death deals insane damage for a nuke early-mid game... Và its spammable!!!3. DOOM... Need i say more... With the scepter, its almost a sure kill4. Pawns with his spells even late game.Weaknesses:1. Low agility growth which is comparable to lớn that of Tiny/Undying2. Low armor even late game3. No disable or slow spell4: Spell Description:
Devour (E)

Swallows an enemy unit for a short period of time, digesting it & dealing 20 damage per second. Each cấp độ decreases the cooldown and mana cost and gives bonus gold when the devoured unit is killed.
Level 1 - Gives 10 bonus gold, can only devour enemy creeps or non-ancient neutral creeps that are no higher than cấp độ 1.Level 2 - Gives 20 bonus gold, can only devour enemy creeps or non-ancient neutral creeps that are no higher than màn chơi 2.Level 3 - Gives 30 bonus gold, và can only devour enemy creeps or non-ancient neutral creeps that are no higher than màn chơi 4.Level 4 - Gives 40 bonus gold, & can only devour enemy creeps or non-ancient neutral creeps that are no higher than cấp độ 6.Mana Cost: 50/ 45/ 40/ 35Cooldown: 30/ 25/ 20/ 15
a must learn skill. This is what gives the edge of fast farming to doom & gets scepter ultra-quick.
2. On using Devour on an enemy creep, the enemy still retains the LOS of the creep until it dies. (almost without getting harassed)
Scorched Earth (T) Blankets the ground in flames, damaging enemies and healing the Doombringer. Also increases Lucy"s attack and movement speed.Lasts đôi mươi secondsLevel 1 - 1 damage/health a second, 10% increased speed.Level 2 - 2 damage/health a second, 15% increased speed.Level 3 - 3 damage/health a second, 20% increased speed.Level 4 - 4 damage/health a second, 30% increased speed.Mana Cost: 60Cooldown: 10note: Your own ring of health and yasha (with even more MS bonus).
LVL? Death (V)

This is what makes you a spellcaster: A nuke with 500 potential damage và an 8 second cooldown!!
Doom (D)

The target unit becomes inflicted with Doom. The afflicted unit cannot cast spells (including tòa tháp spells) & will take damage per second.
Level 1 - deals 40 damage per second for 12 seconds.Level 2 - deals 60 damage per second for 14 seconds.Level 3 - giao dịch 80 damage per second for 16 seconds.Mana Cost: 150/ 200/ 250Cooldown: 180/ 150/ 120

1. Devour needs khổng lồ be maximized out as early as possible; because it gives you gold faster, which you will need in the build I am going lớn suggest.
2. LVL Death should be invested in so as to maximize the output. E.g.: at LVL 2, the spell giao dịch 400 damage khổng lồ heroes at lvls which are multiples of 5. When you learn this spell at lvl4, your opponent in the lane will either be at lvl 4 or 5(if he is alone & you have a partner with you), assuming that you are not outlevelled. At lvl 4-5, a spell which giao dịch 400 damage is insane!!!! (especially for agi/int heroes). Plus, it has a damn small cooldown. So, if that opponent does not retreat after the first hit, give him another. That is enough khổng lồ ensure that he makes a trip khổng lồ the fountain (or even draw first blood if you are smart). Same reason for learning the spell at lvls 8 & 9... Or 7 và 8 if you are outlevelled. A more detailed explanation is in the game play section.
3. As to lớn why we get Doom when possible is self explanatory. It is your ultimate; it can give you an almost assured kill every time you use it. So, no point in keeping it for later.
4. 1 lvl of stat at lvl10?? This is very much a personal choice. I prefer stats because level 1 scorched earth is neither going khổng lồ help you much at escaping nor at chasing. You can get scorched earth if u want (if you ask me, it does not make any difference at all in the spellcaster build, whether you max out scorched earth at lvl 14 or lvl 15). As you are playing spellcaster doom, your job in the team will not be to lớn chase after heroes & finish heroes but rather to spam your spells và help others gank. The IAS is also not really used. As far as using it khổng lồ escape is concerned, it is entirely up to you lớn decide. If getting in one màn chơi of scorched earth gives you that peace of mind, it is worth investing in it. Choose what makes you feel comfortable while playing, because at the over of the day, it is your comfort màn chơi which will be more decisive in the outcome of the game & not just the item/skill build.
Item Build
Core build:1. Power Treads/Boots of Travel2. Ring of Basillus3. Aghanim"s Sceptre4. Refresher OrbAdditional item:Heart of Tarrasque
Starting Build:
1. RoB2. Tangos(as per need)3. Clarity potion(X1)
As we need to lớn spam devour whenever possible and also LVL death to lớn keep lớn enemy nhân vật on his toes, mana regeneration is required. Let us look at the various ways of addressing early game mana regeneration problems.
1. Null Talismans:

Not recommended... Problem with doom is not mana pool early. The requirement is mana regeneration so that it is possible to spam devour every wave & yet have enough mana lớn use lvl death repeatedly around lvl 5-6. Nulls simply don"t give that much regeneration.
2. Clarity potions:
This has a small problem. They dispel on attack. Now, Lucifer is a melee heroes. Even to cast devour, you need khổng lồ go near opposition creeps. This is a contradictory situation. You have lớn farm & yet cant afford lớn take even a single hit. Hence, i don"t recommend using only clarity potions for mana regeneration.
3. Ring of basillus:
This is a great way of addressing the problem. This is an thành phầm made for heroes with lesser intelligence. Instead of adding % based regeneration lớn the base regen, it gives a fixed addition which is a better option for low intelligence heroes. The regeneration provided is enough to lớn spam devour wherever possible & it also provides armour aura which is good for pushing later. Earlier the problem with RoB was that creep waves got pushed too early. However, now, it is possible khổng lồ change the aura to only hero mode. Also, the additional damage is good to lớn ensure last hits. Thus, it is a cheap way lớn ensure that you kill two birds with the same stone.
4. Power Treads:
Another way is khổng lồ get power nguồn treads with intelligence attribute. The + 10 intelligence will address the same problem. However, personally, i feel that the bonus armor from RoB is much better. Another reason why i bởi vì not recommend this is that, i plan lớn rush aghanims by lvl 11-12. If i am lớn use the +10 int from treads,i have to lớn get treads earlier, which delays my aghanims scepter. Also, as early on in the game, i have neither the additional intelligence nor the regeneration, i cannot use devour lớn the fullest without being dependent on clarity potions & this slows down the farming even more.
5. Arcane Ring:

This is good for many multiple casters like Ogre Magi, Earthshaker etc. However, this is an overkill on spellcaster doom imo; especially when the vi xử lý core build is aghanims-refresher. After point booster, Lucifer has enough mana pools for a doom và a couple of LVL? Death casts. As for regeneration between 2 ganks, you can use clarity potions along with the RoB. Arcane Ring would have been viable had it been possible to lớn dissemble it. Then, the energy booster and the ring of protection could have been used in aghanims and RoB respectively.
Empty Bottle is a good thành công for a caster/ganker as it regenerates mana và HP quite fast. Also, now, it can be refilled completely by using the runes. Thus, it is a good cửa nhà for spellcaster doom for solving the mana regeneration problem. However, it doesn"t provide the devotion aura which helps a lot in mid trò chơi pushes. Nonetheless, it is a good item and can be thought of as a core tòa tháp for Doom.
Next thing is to lớn rush would be Soul booster and then Aghanims... Getting Aghanims by lvl 11 means that you vày not get the other items required. But then, your ulti is enough lớn kill the enemy heroes along with a couple of LVL Death hits...
After Aghanims, we get a perseverance for regeneration as you will be spamming spells left right & center. The perseverance will ensure that you don"t have lớn go back to the fountain for some time. If u are facing harassment, you can get the ring of health after the point booster itself or even before. Remember: always be flexible and make changes according khổng lồ the situation. Being rigid can hurt at times. However, vì chưng not complete the perseverance before aghanims ever. The ring helps in regenerating health and that is required lớn stay in lanes. But, the voidstone won"t be of much help. RoB suffices for that purpose. Getting Perseverance after Aghanims means that you have more intelligence & thus the effect of the mana regen rate is magnified many times.
Thus, you have,1. Ring of basillus2. Aghanim"s Scepter3. Boots of Speed4. Perseverance-->/Upgrade to Power Treads/BoT.
Also make Oblivion Staff.-->Convert perseverance to lớn Refresher Orb.
Do this by lvl 18-20 và your team starts owning in team battles... As you effectively silence and kill two of the opposition spellcasters/disablers.
Total Cost of the core Build = 13,650 (this is around 100 creep kills less (without devour) than what razor requires for his build... With devour it will be around 200 creeps kills lesser)
Late Game, get a Heart of tarrasque(5500) khổng lồ further nâng cấp your tanking abilities.Other Items:1. Battlefury(4350):

This is a good damage cống phẩm which adds to the regeneration & also allows easy farming later in the game. However, it should be procured only after the bộ vi xử lý core build is completed. If you get this early, it will definitely allow you lớn farm quicker. But it also means that you get the core build too late in the game.
Although not bad items per se, they are not really required for spellcaster doom as you are not going to vày a lot of physically hitting and you are not the tank in the team anyways khổng lồ take too much damage. However, if the trò chơi does extend even after you have got the chip core build & HoT, you have two options. Either you stack up gold so that you can buy out when dead; or you can think of converting RoB into Vladmir"s as it is a very team based item. However, vì this only if your team mates(read tanks) hasn"t made any other pushing inventory.
Again, this vật phẩm can be thought of as a part of the vi xử lý core build for tanks. However, getting this after the bộ vi xử lý core aghanims build seems lượt thích a waste.
Too costly. For spellcaster doom, radiance is best used to lớn farm faster for the bộ vi xử lý core build. However, getting it early means that your chip core build is delayed. As I mentioned earlier, the build is designed with the aim to lớn optimize your ultimate & hence, we want aghanims as early as possible. Later in the game, it is better off on the tank in your team. Remember, you are not the tank in the team. You are playing spellcaster; & unless you are playing a pub game, you will never have enough gold to lớn complete this as your 6th item. If you vì have that much gold, and no one in your team has made this, you can go on to lớn make this.
Again too costly khổng lồ even think of it. You wont be completing this thành tích after your core build ever; và it s not even worth its cost for you. You are the spellcaster. You aren"t the person to go after heroes trying to kill them with your physical hits. So, the slow orb isn"t made for you. The stats are useless as well (particularly the intelligence & mana pool). Rather let razor make this.
OK. This is another team based chiến thắng which increases your EHP significantly as well. But it is too costly to be your 6th item. You can rather ask your team"s tank lớn make this item. Like, skadi, it is not really made for your role as a spellcaster in the team. Had it been the tank build, i would have included this in the vi xử lý core build.
However, if no one is making this, và you really want the extra pushing ability, then you can think of it as a replacement khổng lồ HoT. In that case, bởi vì sell off RoB as it"s devotion aura won"t stack & the extra mana regeneration will not really be required at that stage. .
Well. You are the primary spellcaster of the team. Thus, this cửa nhà suits your role well. An added nuke can ensure early kills. The only thing i would suggest is that If you want to lớn get dagon, get it after you complete your chip core build. The reason is that the benefits provided by Aghanims are far superior lớn the dagon. Also, you will have made perseverance. Rather than making a dagon at this stage, it is better lớn go for refresher itself... Which basically kills it for dagon. The time when a dagon is most effective is mid game; and in mid game, if you go for dagon, then it delays aghanims. Well, that beats the very purpose of this guide và that is khổng lồ use doom(ulti) at its maximum efficiency. So, it is basically up to you khổng lồ decide. You can get dagon earlier if you can cosplay to it and get enough kills to lớn get aghanims quicker. Or, the other option will be lớn get dagon immediately after aghanims.

Considering the advantages this cống phẩm gives, it is remarkably cheap as well... Just that, some of the advantages like the added intelligence and the mana regeneration are not really required for Doom even in the spellcaster mode. The sad thing is that if you cast doom on the target which is having soul burn, the silence from soul burn is wasted.
This is a debatable point. Nguồn Treads give IAS, extra stats which are good in mid game; BoT gives ability khổng lồ teleport, which is invaluable late game. Which khổng lồ choose?? As the spellcaster, you vị not need the IAS. However, the stats may seem handy. Also, PT provide the flexibility to lớn balance the stat distribution of the hero. To add to that, the components are all cheap. IN favor of Bot, we have better MS and ability lớn teleport; both of which are really good for ganking. However, there is the cost of the scroll for which you need khổng lồ stack up gold.
As I vị not suggest the use of bracers/nulls, go for power nguồn Treads if you are not comfortable with base stat distribution of Lucy; or if you are not comfortable with stacking gold for the BoT scroll. After all, there is no point in dying a couple of times và delaying everything. However, later in the game, vì replace it with BoT as the ability to teleport is far superior late trò chơi when you have to push/defend different lanes.
If you are relatively comfortable with farming for BoT & surviving/ganking without the extra stats, then go for BoT as they are ultimately more effective. For this, you can even think of buying empty bottle lớn supplement you instead of the stats from PT.
Ask your team mates for the top lane(scourge) or bottom lane(sentinel). Vì chưng not go solo as you are melee và can be easily harassed. Preferably have a ranged lane mate. Pretty much like every other melee hero, you stay behind. Go forward once, devour an enemy creep(preferably one at full health) when you get a last hit on the creep(enemy or your own). Ask your lane partner(if he is ranged) khổng lồ engage the opponent hero. Bởi it yourself if you bởi vì not have a ranged lane mate. What this does is that the enemy creeps automatically focus fire on you and try lớn attack you. In doing so, they cross the line of your creeps & come towards your side This makes it easier khổng lồ get last hits without having to lớn cross the creep line và thus minimizing harassment. RoB will give you enough mana regen to lớn spam devour incessantly. Keep the RoB to anh hùng only aura so that you don"t push your creeps too far. Deny as many creeps as you can as you vị not have lớn bother about last hitting as much as others. The clarity potion is for the time when you spam LVL Death at your opponent lớn get an early kill or force your enemy back... Also, ask one of your team mates to nói qua the control for the chicken. This helps as you don"t have to lớn buy a separate courier và helps you khổng lồ get your items whenever you have the required gold. But, vì ensure that the chicken doesn"t get killed in the process of carrying the items for you. Your team mate wont be so happy to share the chicken with you again... In between waves, go khổng lồ the neutral camp and use devour on the highest cấp độ creep (like chen"s creep dominating ability). This ensures quicker earning và experience.
By now, you should have boots & soul booster. This is the time khổng lồ start participating in ganks. Be smart with the use of spells. Try khổng lồ get kills with doom & LVL? Death. Go on neutral creeping in between ganks. Use devour well now. You can devour the Satyr Hellcaller(lvl 6) which gives you a total of 155 gold. However, remember that when you devour an enemy creep, the enemy still gets the lines of sight of that creep until it dies. Thus, before ganking, vị NOT devour an enemy creep. Rather go for the highest màn chơi neutral.
The soul booster/aghanims helps you with tanking damage as well. Thus, you don"t have to lớn get the strength items early. Also, change the RoB aura from nhân vật only to lớn all. This will allow you lớn push harder. Keep Farming and get your items. Spam scorched earth so that you can farm better. Also scorched earth will also help you to lớn chase down those fleeing heroes. Remember, cast scorched earth well in front of you while chasing. Take part in team battles & try khổng lồ kill the agi/int heroes in the opposition. In team battles, doom that hero who is the worst disabler(for you, that is) or the one who has the most annoying ultimate. Và use doom khổng lồ get kills và not just as a deterrent. The use of doom as a deterrent must occur only when you are fleeing & want to lớn survive. Again, scorched earth will help you in your escape.
Remember, Doom goes through avatar!! So, you can doom those irritating disablers which don"t allow escape even if they have BKB...
By now (lvl 16-17), you should have completed the bộ vi xử lý core build. Join your team in team battles. Cast scorched earth, get into the battle. Cast doom-refresh-doom on the enemy heroes in the following order of preference:
1. Insane DPS heroes depending on autocasts. Eg.: harbinger, silencer, enchantress2. Heroes with insane channelling ulti"s and AOE spells. Eg.: rylai, bane, enigma, leshrac, Death Prophet, Lich
3. Disablers/nukers và spell based agi carry heroes. Eg.: Zeus, slayer, rhasta, vol"jin, lion, luna moonfang, Anubarak etc..
thus, you have effectively silenced two of the enemy players and dealt around 1000 exact damage over time. Now keep spamming LVL? death, preferably on the heroes your team is focus firing. Go in & use the bonuses offered by the scorched earth & keep physically hitting the enemy heroes. That basically sums up your role as the spellcaster doom. The one advantage that spellcaster doom has over other int/agi spellcasters is that doom has far better survivability as well as that he has insane base damage (at lvl 25, with the attribute bonuses, his base damage is well above 150!!).
early-mid game, select the strength attribute if you have survivability issues. If confident about surviving, then select intelligence attribute, so that you have the mana khổng lồ spam until you complete soul booster. Towards late game, it is better to lớn use agility as the attribute as strength & intelligence wont make much of a difference. Also, the 1.6 extra armor definitely helps.
Regarding the use of Devour:
Use devour whenever it has cooled down. When you are laning, try khổng lồ devour the creep with around half health or less. This will ensure that you dont push too forward as well as that the cooldown will be ready when the creep dies, thus increasing the effeciency of using devour. When you vì intend to lớn push, get the creep with highest health. Thus, your creepwave gets an advantage. Whenever, you are travelling from one lane lớn another, keep an eye on the neutral creep camps. If you find either of the following creeps (satyr hellcaller, jungle stalker, centaur, furlbog(lvl 5), darktroll), devour them, finish the rest of the camp & move on.Regarding the use of LVL? Death:
LVL? Death is best utilized early game when the bonus damage is available. Thus, you should know when lớn lvl up the nuke and when khổng lồ lvl up your devour. I will put down the cases as to lớn when to lớn use LVL? Death. (In the cases, i am assuming that you are going with a lane partner.)
1. You are facing a solo opponent (most probably ranged anh hùng int or agi caster type). When you are lvl 4, he will be at 5 assuming all of you are denying decently. Thus, your lvl2 nuke giao dịch 400 damage (300 after reduction). You can use it for spamming in conjunction with your ally"s nukes (if he has any) & net a kill.
2. If your ally doesnt have a nuke but is a ranged hero, ask him to lớn continually harass the opponent. Thus, when you get the chance, you can land a couple of hits and a nuke lớn get a kill.
3. When you are at lvl 6/7 và an opponent is at 8. Your nuke deals 450 damage (337.5 after reduction). Usually, by this stage, you should be ganking and thus, should have an ally who can assist. A couple of nukes và doom should ensure kills.
This occurs only when you are in a double lane & you are denying superbly or if your ally is a nuker who has sent the opponent back a couple of times.
When, You reach lvl5, your opponent will be at 4. Your lvl 3 nuke đơn hàng 450 damage. A couple of nukes và hits should be enough to kill any lvl 4 hero. So, instead of maxing out devour, level up this skill.Get your ally"s help if needed.
This happens again when you are at lvl 7 and your enemy hero is at lvl 6. In such a case, max out LVL Death before Devour.
Max out devour ASAP. You can use nuke with the bonus damage at lvl 5, 8 và 9.Thus, keep your mind open and use your skill points as per the situation maxing out your advantage.Regarding the use of Scorched Earth:Read through Great Crusade"s guide for the same. There is no guide that explains how lớn use this skill better than that and I don"t even intend khổng lồ try and better that (if it were possible ).Best Allies/Worst EnemiesBest Allies:1. Those with disables: Naga Siren, Meepo...

These are useful mid trò chơi when you start ganking... Their disables ensure that you can cast your spells easily while they keep hammering the enemy.
2. Those with nukes having stuns: vengeful spirit, Sven, long knight, Skeleton king, Beastmaster...
They are good early lane mates as you can combine your nukes with theirs và net early kills.3.those with slow spells : Drow ranger, viper, bristleback, NightStalker, Abaddon, meepo
with their slow attacks, you can even gank big time tanks like centaur, leoric, treant.4. Those with good supporting spells: Oblivion, Witch Doctor ...

They have spells which magnifies the spell damage dealt lớn the enemy hero. Stun + maledict + LVL? Death + Doom == GG for the opponent. Although, you may not be playing the spellcaster doom if these guys are in the team.
they can disable you for a long time.. That is... A time long enough for their team mates khổng lồ finish you off. & all you can vị is sit & watch... Although, it comes down to lớn the element of surprise. If they disable you before you can react, they will probably kill you. But, if you see them coming, you can doom them and effectively foil their gank. Thus, warding is an effective counter khổng lồ them.
To the tanker build Doom Bringer, AM would not have been a problem. However, to the spellcaster Doom, AM is a headache. If AM gets Hood of Defiance before spellshield, your lvl3 doom with scepter which is supposed to giảm giá khuyến mãi 1600 damage, đơn hàng a paltry 456 damage that too over 16 seconds (=28.5 effective dps) thus, completely wasting your scepter. LVL? Death causes a maximum of 142 damage!!! The only plus point is that when doomed, he can not blink away, nor can he cast his ultimate.
3. Healers: Chen, Omniknight, Shadow Priest, Necrolyte, Huskar, Warlock
These buggers can save those heroes who are "Doomed" và thus take away your well deserved kills.4. Then come those who can dispel doom:Abaddon, Leviathan
you cant vì chưng much about him... His ultimate will trigger at 400 hp limit và thus, your doom is wasted. If you have an ally with a stun/net/disable in your team và abaddon is at a lvl which is a multiple of your lvl? death multiplier , vày use doom on him. Doom ensures that he cant order the activation his ulti. When, the borrowed time activates, your ally disables him. When borrowed time gets over, get in a hit or two & finish him off with LVL? death... (LVL? Death deals 375 damage (with multiplier bonus) at lvl 4... & doom was at 400 on activation of BT. Thus, two hits+LVL?Death = sure kill.)
