Spotlight: Winter Wyvern - 6.84 Builds

Winter Wyvern is still trying to find its place in most line-ups, but almost everyone agrees that the hero's main purpose is lane support and teamfight.  It's the kind of hero that wears the enemy team down, with a possible burst initiation using her ultimate.

Here are some build ideas, based on the new items:

Lane Harass:

Ability build:  1-2-1-3-1-4-1 (to level 7, early Arctic Burn)
Starting Items: Wardx2 or Courier, Tangos x 2, Clarity, Ring of Protection
As Needed:  Wards, TP Scrolls, Health Pot for carry, Flying Courier
Core Items:  Tranquil Boots, Medallion
Luxury:  Solar Crest

Team Support

Ability build (early Splinter Blast): 2-1-2-3-2-4-2 (to Level 7)
Starting Items:  Wardx2 or Courier, Tango, Health Pot, Clarity, Ring of Protection
Early:  Basilius
As Needed:  see above
Core Items: Boots, Vlad's
Luxury:  Veil of Discord

Team Ideas:
