Replay of Challenge "Mighty Axe ! "

As SAN was away for Vesak Vacation, we had the game little late than planned, and it was a tough and enjoyable game. However, some disturbances due to lags occured during game. Without further ado, here's the replay. Watch it for yourself, and it was a really good game.

Game Mode: All Pick / Only Mid / Mirror Match

Heroes: Axe vs. Axe

Sentinel: Mahasona
Scourge: ClawOfDeath

Life Steal for Life Stealer ?

I just had this idea about building Life Steal items for N'aix, the Life Stealer. I know that his Feast is more than enough for life stealing, and I usually don't go building life steal items, but rather consider about improving his DPS by building more damage and IAS items.

However, I noticed this about LifeStealer's abilities. First of all, Feast is not an orb effect. That means, it should stack with any other life steal item. And since he is melee, we can use Vladmir's Offering as a life steal item too. That means, if we could build Valdmir's, Helm of Dominator and upgrade his Feast skill, all should stack. What if we enhance Helm to Satanic? Vladmir's offers 17% Life Steal, Satanic 25% => 42% Life Steal. With Satanic's Active, that would be 52% Life Steal!

And then again, Feast has its own way about calculating how the life steal happens (with regards to the enemy's current HP percentage), but with Level 4 Feast, it restores 7% of enemy's current HP per hit. That means with all those items, he would be unstoppable (well, he would be unstoppable only with feast as well).

Any ideas?

(Please limit your discussion to the topic, Life Steal for Life Stealer. This is not a discussion about which item is best suited for Life Stealer)

Talking about Axe...

Since "Axe" has been the center of discussions during recent times, I thought of posting this kind of old replay of a game which I played Axe. This was my 2nd time playing Axe, if I'm not mistaken.

The way I play is noobish, but managed to have a decent streak in this game (4 Double Kills, 1 Triple Kill, Longest Spree of 23, Finally 24/1/3). This is one of the best games I have played.

Looking back, this is not the way I would play Axe today, but it was very enjoyable.

Game Mode: All Pick (Only new players picked, others randomed using -random)

Picked Heroes: mobyDick (Razor) / Noob[now BuGgUy86] (Sniper) / Dutugemunu (Mirana) /praa (Lycan) / sashi (Troll)

Randomed Heroes: Blaze (Tiny) / DZZone (Pudge) / frank (Chen) / SF (Alchemist) / ClawOfDeath (Axe)

Location: APIIT Corporate Labs ;)

Sentinel (5) : Noob (Sniper) / frank (Chen) / praa (Lycan) / sashi (Troll) / Blaze (Tiny)

Scourge (5)
: ClawOfDeath (Axe) / mobyDick (Razor) / SF (Alchemist) / Dutugemunu (Mirana) / ~!.DZZone.!~ (Pudge)

Winner: Scourge

Juggernaut VS Axe CHALLENGE!

Hey ppl.. its me Frank again.. wanna challenge Axe, my buddy SAN with Juggernaut.. :P will c whether the things can b turned otherway around.. :P

So VS ?? ..... :P :P

Axe VS Juggernaut

I thought of sharing a replay of a game i played recently with a friend of mine.
The heroes are Axe and juggernaut,

Juggernaut is considered one of the best heroes for 1 on 1 play since his superb ultimate power. DOTA Professionals say that this is the best ultimate power among all heroes found in DOTA.

But; I played Axe and for the results of the game pls view the replay.

This image was taken just before i draw first blood!.

Author Introduction - Dutugemunu

Hi, I am Lakmal here. A well known player of Command & Conquer Generals + Zero Hour extension. Recently moved into DOTA by the influence of ClawOfDeath (a.k.a Yohan/Link). However I am a newbie for DOTA and still playing more hours to get more experience. I prefer playing Agility & Intelligent Heroes. My favorite hero is Mirana & I am pretty good at playing Mirana. Also loves to play puck, twin head dragon & Razor. I am also in Hamachi DOTA groups. But no time for regular game play because I am working & studying too...

Author Introduction - Mahasona


Im Samitha ( SAN_APIIT || Mahasona ). I was a Warcraft III player since 2006; But I started playing DOTA resantly.

I'm best when i play AXE; PIT LOAD; TINY........ etc......

I like strength heroes most. you will find me on Hamachi and GG. I'm in most of the rooms in Hamachi and you will find me in "SL DotA Room" in GG.
My playing times are limited to night coz i'm in my final year and the time gets is really hard to manage by the day. But still i manage to find time for the game i love; "DOTA".

We always use the latest maps for our games; that helps us stay away from bug and it help to experience new functions in the maps. so when you guys come to play please be updated. Thx !!!

See ya soon in the game.


Auhtor Introduction - ClawOfDeath

Hi, my name is Yohan, (a.k.a ClawOfDeath / Link) and I created this blog to share the views / replays and opinions of our DotA clan at APIIT.

About myself, I am a DotA Addict, and has been playing DotA from 2007 (played a little around 2006, but nothing much). I don't have a one single favourite hero as such, but I prefer Agility heroes than any other type. I like to play Mortred, Rikimaru, Terrorblade, Mercurial, Juggernaut, ....... and the list ends when 75% of all heroes is reached. I enjoy every single minute of the game, but hate leavers and droppers!

You will catch me mostly in our Hamachi networks (as Link), and sometimes in GG Client (ClawOfDeath). My playing name is ClawOfDeath in both.

Catch me at:

APIIT-DotA-Special, APIIT-DotA, HF06A1

Garena (GG Client)
SL DotA Room
International DotA Room

See you guys in the game.
Until then, Peace.
