Note to anyone that wants to use this character but does not have the ruins, don't be discouraged from playing him with hodge podge ruins the items let you still hit like a truck, the ruins just help a LOT.

This guide will be short and simple to explain how this build works.

Basically this character is one of the biggest melee powerhouses of this game. Most of the damage this character deals will come from right clicking your opponent and going to town hacking at them and cutting them down with big crits. Early game "might" going to be an issue if you are being constantly harassed. Mid game tanks are the only thing you need to worry about. Late game with this build only the whole other can has to focus you to have a chance at killing you. This build focuses on speed, crit damage, and knowing when to strike.

This guide will only be useful if you know how to use this character. I know that the items and order might seem odd but when done in this order the items are easily obtainable and work very well. (Also I am aware that you will be crit capped while at full health, this is needed so that every hit does max damage).

Early Game:
You should be able to get all of these items around 8-12 min into the game.
Brawler's Gloves and two healing potions. The gloves help early on when trying to get that first kill for the bonus gold.
2x Avarice Blade and Berserker's Greaves The two blade make your crit higher right away and give you the gold you need!
The two blades will be giving you 24% to crit chance putting your ruins to use. On top of it even though these blades only give 5 gold every 10 seconds, you will have two giving 10 gold every 10 seconds. This gold adds up fast letting you buy your items a lot quicker then normal. The Berserker's Greaves will be best for this build because you are all about doing damage as fast as you can to the enemy hero.
The only reason I have Edge being last is with this build you auto attacks will be doing around 700 damage before you get it and with it it just puts you in nuke mode.

Mid Game:
Vampiric Scepter, Phantom Dancer and start working on the second Phantom Dancer
Basically the Scepter will give you just enough life steal to live through most one vs one fights without having to pop your ult. This also helps for tanks that get Thornmail.
The Phantom Dancer's will give you the rest of the crit chance you need to get up around 99% for your swings. Not only do these get your crit to max they also give you a HUGE bonus to moment and attack speed so you can chase down almost any hero and beat them super quick.

Late Game:
The Bloodthirster, Youmuu's Ghostblade]], Infinity Edge
You are going to upgrade your Scepter into the bloodthirster for the bonus damage and life steal it adds and through kills gets bigger.
Next you will turn one of your Avarice Blade's into a Ghoastblade so you will have cool down reduction, armor pen, and can use it for movement speed and attack speed buff. (Make sure you put this item in 1,2, or 3 number slot so that you can hot key its use).
The last item you will get is the Edge, yes this will be last... You will sell your second Avarice Blade and buy the edge when you have the gold. When you have this item your normal attacks will ALWAYS be a crit and when you have 8 stacks from Blood Lust you auto attacks should be hitting for 1100 damage min, (on tanks it will be less because they have armor and you have bare min armor pen).
The only reason I have Edge being last is with this build you auto attacks will be doing around 700 damage before you get it and with it it just puts you in nuke mode.

The Ruins for this guide are all crit damage so that your auto attacks hit hard. As stated at the beginning, if you don't have all the ruins for this build you can use attack speed, attack damage, crit chance ( only helpful early game) if needed.

9x Greater Mark of Critical Damage all about the crit damage!

9x Greater Glyph of Critical Damage MORE crit damage!!

9x Greater Seal of Critical Damage EVEN MOORE crit damage!!!

Battle Fury your passive that gives you 10% crit chance and more when your health is low. This will only be helpful early game before you max your crit out.

Blood Lust your self heal ability and adds crit damage so you hit harder.

Mocking Shout your attack damage AoE reducing effect and AoE slowing effect to enemies that have their back to you.

Spinning Slash your best ability for escaping/ going through walls/ and catching up to heros. During a fight I don't suggest using this ability unless you plan on running, catching up to a running hero, or are blinded. Your auto attacks hit 2/3 times harder then this ability.

Undying Rage aka juggernaut mode. You use this skill to make it so that you can't die. This also adds stacks to your Blood lust if it isn't already at max. You can use this ability while stunned and will let you stay at one health until it wares off.

Summoner Spells

Flash For this build will WANT this spell so that you have an extra way to get close to an enemy or get away from them if needed.

For your second spell it can be one of four spells; Ignite, Exhaust, Heal, and Cleanse.
Take as you see fit, I usually get ignite or Cleanse if the other team is heavy CC.
Ignite will be helpful early game when trying to get the first kill, and be ok mid game, but late game will just be a DoT for this character late game.

Exhaust will be another way to slow an enemy down to kill them throughout the whole game.

Heal this will only be helpful when you pop your ult and are at low health. When running use this and Blood Lust to get a chunk of your health back (assuming you don't have a anti healing effect on you.

Cleanse basically this will to helpful if you are playing against a team that has a TON off crowd control effects. Can also be helpful if they have blind effects.

If you know of this character works, then this guide is for you. This build basically lets you be the carry of the team and not have to worry about dying super quick if you get focused first. This guild makes it so that you can take down ANY hero 1v1 and at times 1v2. Just think of this guide as the Juggernaut build, once you get going you are almost imposable to stop.
