I've got bad news for you, anon.
Great OP, glad to see new information is being added
Flesh Golem provides 10/15/20 damage block against all damage while active
You are a fucking god, it's seriously well drawn Anon, don't underestimate yourself.
You have no ears.
I'm sorry, anon.
Pick warlock, chain everyone to the beast.
Gonna need some sauce on that.

>talking shit about the best rpg in the history of mankind
Everyone ready to watch shitshit get fucked up?
dude reading is for nerds do you seriously read lol
should I bring along Anomen or Viconia for my cleric
Yes, I'm cheating so the party won't fight
I was thinking Viconia since I already have plenty of damage (Fighter/Mage protag, Keldorn, and Edwin)
whatever nerd you probably just read in anime LMAO
guys i need a laptop that can play dota (dont really give a shit about settings as long as i can clearly tell whats going on and the framerate is good). budget is around 350-400$.
>enemy natures prophet dies 14 times
>still ends up 6 slotted
how does this game work
lol anime is for faggots and im not a nerd u whor fite me irl ill fuk u up kid
they will just unflip the phase boots icon becuase reddit doesnt like it after all, or i dont know, make so you can move more than 1 item at a time in armory and they will be back to the "saviours of pc gaming" tier
I mean, invis in the trenches is a good idea, but christ, remember your role first and foremost.
Plus if it really is the bad leagues, a few fucking team fights and well placed Freezing Fields, and he'll have money to spare.
Depends what your other party members are. Anomen is probably one of the most solid clerics in the game with decent fighter stats. He's just incredibly obnoxious, although his questline partially justifies this at least for one time playing with him.
Late game (near the end of BG2 and ToB) he becomes a very good frontline fighter with some str items. A natural candidate for the flail of ages (which SOMEONE in your party should wield probably all game) or the Crom Faeyr.
Viconia's innate magic resist make her ungodly tanky to magic damage. But she's a pure cleric and clerics, although horseshit, tend to stop getting much more impressive when you near the higher levels. She will have a lot of spell casts though, including chaotic commands and true sight, something you want in spades in later portions of the game (Edwin can't cast either since it's the prohibited school).
If you have a Fighter/Mage protag you'll probably wind up wielding the crom faeyr or flail yourself and let Keldorn wield some devestating two handed weapon like a halberd or the holy avenger.
Really depends on what your last party slots are. You need a theif and the 6th can be whatever you want.
i need one because my desktop hard drive just died and im going back home for a few months. im going to build a new desktop after that. i didnt know laptop price/performance was that bad but apparently it is.
why do you need it to be a laptop?
I have brought 2 because I'm constantly moving around and both times the fan is ridiculously loud, its too heavy to actually use like a normal laptop so I kill my back sitting on shitty chairs all the time and it gets stupidly hot
Its 1 am and I have my window open and I'm still too hot
Matthew Bailey @Cyborgmatt
Mobile friendly as well for those on the go.
ok so he is not actually good.
i thought there is some nice mechanic with fatal bonds, but no he is actual trash and you have never even played the evnet if you think games go so long that you can make aghs rfo
thanks for the tips
Linking the JoinDota site is not shilling, they are the biggest site for Dota 2 news. Same for the D2Lounge, they are the biggest site for betting, instead of some newtard shitting the thread about "how do I bet?", they just check the link in the OP.
Why do you need to follow Zyori on twitter? What news is there on the BTS site? Fucking nothing, kill yourself.
>kicked from team
>lose 5 games in a row
>still happy, joking and singing tuturus
how does he make it? any other pro would be raging like crazy right now. I guess making a 5-6k euros every time you stream helps keep a good mood
his main role is being a counter to agi carries.
they have shitload of armor and its all base armor since they get lots of agi.
morph gets destroyed by the aura for example, its his hardest counter.
side role is a default wombo combo hero.
best lane is offlane, radiant is better.
he was okay mid but spirit damage was nerfed too much.
items just default utility and auras.
you can get a midas since he farms slow as dick
warlock, max speed on beast, always make the beast tp to the lane you and your team agreed on pushing the moment he spawns, apply bonds, use beast thunderwrath and procceed to win teamfight then rax. Necro is good.
does anyone want to be my friend? im sick of being lonely on valentines day. nobody on my friends list wants to do anything other than play or discuss dota. im cute i promise :3
we can erp too if you want ^^ http://steamcommunity.com/id/tfwpro/
>you can't sell items you find anymore
what's even the point?
this game is making me furious, every change is ridiculous and getting more and more fucking idiotic
finger of death does 650 damage, laguna blade has a lower cooldown than nether strike, shrapnel buffed so hard you can now cast it 3 fucking times for 50 mana each
all this stupid bullshit adding up makes me really hate this game, I went BKB against a high stun line up, with lina and qop, I lost over 3/4 of my life during bkb with magic skills
waga and sing should take 3 more shitters like tucker and ar1se and go full memetwitch streaming all the time as a 5 stack trying meme strats just to entertain the viewers and get a ton of money
easy 1 million € each per year, retire after 5 years and set for live
Why isn't this thread getting deleted?
Non Dota related OP and literal advertising. That's against the fucking rules.
I'm not known for NSFW or anything else memorable tho so don't get your hopes up
i lost 10 matches in a row before i won my first one
hope this helps
Play Dota they said
It will be fun they said

There's only so much of this game I can stand.
In 2015, a crack commando unit was sent to Low Priority by Valve court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the US East underground. Today, still wanted by Valve, they survive as soldiers of fortune.
If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire...
THE LPQ TEAM
Winter Wyvern voice is... is... PERFECT!
I played her just now and I think I am in love.
Brow girls are the best girls.
The biggest problem is just how many monsters and non-human characters there are in the game.
Look at League. Like, 5-10% of the champs are monsters. The other 90% are all attractive males and females of varying ethnicity and builds, all of whom get a shit load of fanart outside the mascot character (Teemo).
4chan may be all over the monster cunt/dick, but in truth we're less than 1% of the fandom.
>mfw i was this close to accidentally queue for le beast levent right now
>they changed it from 20 minutes
>which was changed from 10 minutes
>you can't queue for normal dota when the random 10 minutes of the event is on
Who at Valve thinks up these things?
>Let's make it so that everyone has to queue for the event in a narrow 10 minute window
>Our already shit servers will be able to handle that!
Looks like I have to take a fap break for 10 mins before I can actually play the game.
>mfw watching singsings stream
Wait I thought you valvedrones said it was an OPTIONAL event and that isn't p2w?
He literally cannot play ranked because it keeps putting him on to new bloom p2w game
DEFEND THIS VALVEDRONES
I FUCKING DARE YOU
post yfw you lived to see the day an cosmetic p2w event is MANDATORY and valvedrones eating that shit up
>2012, have gf, have team, life is good
>2015, alone on valentines, kicked from c9, kicked from team tinker
where did it all go wrong?
It's a beta stop being so entitled TI2 just ended Source 2 will fix every last problem this game has.
You can't be too picky about straight Dota 2 art.
Nice fucking gamemode Dotards
>playing ranked match
>getting utterly stomped
>enemy team shit talking
>own team shit talking
>final set of rax going down
>game is safe to leave, no stats recorded
THANK YOU BASED JEWS OF VALVE, THANK YOU
THANK YOU MEME BEAST AND MEME EVENT
its been all downhill for sing since TI4. back in 2012 he had a girlfriend and based mouz as team, now he's been kicked from c9 and team tinker and spending valentines alone playing year beast :^)
>/d2g/ claiming otherwise
Maybe some retards here, but not all of us are Valvedrones.
>cast heal 3 times
>game is over
it's okay that I'm spending Valentine's Day alone because someone as cool as SingSing also spent it alone
>tfw I didn't pay money to valve
>tfw I lost when I queued up to year best
That image is obviously not accurate.
>these games that you know you could have easily won but everything just falls apart
>both teams whacking the other's throne
>our dd battle tranced year beast gets distracted by a creep
he seems to be having more fun in this game than any of the other 6 he played today.
he's laughing all the time.
that's what a "fun mode" is supposed to be, you play it once or twice a week and move on too bad you autists can understand that
>pick PL in beast event
>enemy juggernaut pickers cry when i destroy him and the beast
PL BROS WW@
I wish Kripp would play Dota
>Slark literally feeding
>ES + Axe not initiating ever
>4 solid stuns + doom
>Work together as five
Well there's my forced 50 game out of the way, the CM pick made it easy to know the outcome of the game so I didn't waste a prediction :D
Post YFW you've been winning year beast in spite of not spending a dime
>mfw there are goyim in this general who actually bought points
So to add to the things valve cant code for their life: Pathfinding
IM CLICKING ON A STRAIGHT LINE
MY HERO IS FUCKING TURNING TWO TIMES
TO FIND A PATH
THIS SHIT IS FUNNY AS FUK XDDD VALVE
BUT HOLY FUCK
ON GAMES WITH TURN RATE
THAT I DOUBT YOU FAGGOTS PLAY
BECAUSEY OU ARE FUCKING PLAYING LEL FOR HTIS EPIC FUNNY JOKE
THIS SHIT ACTUALLY MATTERS
DUE TO TURN RATES
JUST FIRE EVERYONE
REVERT THE CHANGES
LEAVE THE GAME ALONE ITS OBVIOUS YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT THE FUCK TO DO
Post yfw you're not retarded enough to play a p2w mode
lmao3orb is a gold standard pl build
but new pls illusions are garbage all things considered so you don't expressly have to build for them if you don't want to, there was an experimental +damage build floating around for a little bit but I forget what it was
Okaaaay, I also heard somewhere that casual soul ring is fucking hilarious because you can just chuck shit at people for !!FREE!! damage. Is it worth picking up in lane?
>Mfw I win a p2w mode without actually p2w
Just played my first and probably last game of the year shit, game mode is ridiculously boring and p2w on top of that. Why anyone would waste their time playing this crap is beyond me
so my friend came over to my house to play the brawl event together on lan but i just found out there is no lan setting? the fuck?
also he is eating everything in my fridge without asking, thats not normal right
Why am I so much better than all of you at Crystal Maiden?
>Why anyone would waste their time playing this crap is beyond me
It literally prints money
Anyone have a schedule for the event? I only got three games in before I had to sleep. When's the next?
What did you just say to me?
