Spirit breaker is pretty cool. I am building him with a magic wand early then building ancient janggo and mask of madness with power treads as core and then build a BKB. After the BKB if the game isn't over by then I build a heart. I also use the recommended starting items because they seem to be working for me. Is this a good build or am I doing it horribly wrong?
I just realised how much Dota I've been playing. I have 885 hours played. Now to put this into perspective, I've been in the Beta for precisely 5 months and 19 days. I've played 1675 hours of TF2, and I've been playing that for 3 years, 6 months and 29 days. Just over half the time in 13% of the time. Holy cow.

Are you targeted physically a lot ? Blademail. Are you a primary disable target ? BKB. Enemy team has that one guy that does crapload of damage ? Heaven's Halberd. Enemy team always stay close to eachother ? Scepter.

[QUOTE=Banned?;34910806]Don't build MoM. Don't build MoM on anyone but Faceless.[/QUOTE] To be honest it works really well on Barathrum if you can pick alone targets, the original stun from the Charge plus the increased attack speed (= increased Bash chances) can disable the target all the way to his death.

If someone else shows up you're fucked harder than a high school prom date. Don't get MoM on Barathum. That's one of the more completely retarded suggestions. If you want attack speed, get a Hyperstone. It's only 200 more gold and it can build into two good items, both viable on Bara.
Bara is STR hero, so he has innate tankiness. Why not Mask if it adds attack speed on top of movement speed ?
I prefer an AC over MoM
[QUOTE=Tokagero;34911349]Bara is STR hero, so he has innate tankiness. Why not Mask if it adds attack speed on top of movement speed ?[/QUOTE] Innate tankiness goes out the windows when you take 30% extra damage from everything.

[QUOTE=Maruhai;34911404]I can understand the Hyperstone choice, but MoM also has Lifesteal, annd both items that you can build with Hyperstone are not always the best choices.[/QUOTE] If you need lifesteal that badly, Satanic would be a better choice, probably. Especially since it will make you even tankier.

[QUOTE=Rats808;34911536]If you need lifesteal that badly, Satanic would be a better choice, probably. Especially since it will make you even tankier.[/QUOTE] Pretty much this. Hyperstone/Helm of the Dominator is expensive but they both upgrade into valuable things.
[QUOTE=Banned?;34912390]Pretty much this. Hyperstone/Helm of the Dominator is expensive but they both upgrade into valuable things.[/QUOTE] Helm of the Dominator actually costs less than Mask of Madness. [i]And[/i] you can use it to stack a creep camp(or 2, or 3 if you're good enough) while being nowhere near it.
[QUOTE=Rats808;34911536]If you need lifesteal that badly, Satanic would be a better choice, probably. Especially since it will make you even tankier.[/QUOTE] You don't have the time nor the money to build a Satanic in most cases tho, since it's not worth taking it before your cores (Urn, Hyperstone/MoM, Janggo, Treads), and after that you have better items to build, and even after that, you don't have the time nor the money to build a Satanic, and you already fell off too much.

It's cheaper than MoM and gives you armor AND lifesteal.

Both are effective on their own. Also, why couldn't I just build right into a Satanic? Drum is nice but I wouldn't build it as a core item. Hyperstone can be held on to so you can "wait and see" what would be better to build.

Otherwise you could have sold that Vanguard for a Heart or something.

On Bara; If you think Hyperstone is too expensive just build HotD and Armlet(and ofc Jango). The only time you should make MoM is when the enemy team doesnt have nukers or disablers that can rape you if the gank goes horribly wrong.
