Hero Spotlight: Slardar (6.87)

In Dota 2, Slardar is not known as a terribly hard carry, as even though his skill set is excellent, he does not scale as well as some of the harder carries (like Anti-Mage, Spectre, and Phantom Assassin), 

  • Excellent stat gain
  • Good Blink-Initiator
  • Sprint gives good mobility
  • Excellent Physical-Damage dealer
  • Abilities pierce BKB (physical)
  • Built-in Bash
  • Needs very few items to "come online" and start ganking or fighting
  • No teamfight ultimate
  • Needs attack speed items
  • Sometimes hard to find a place to lane him
