Aside from Ursa, is there any other hero that can SOLO Roshan at an early level like L-6 or at least below L-10.

This is not a duplicate since were talking about SOLOing Roshan, not by a TEAM –  MegaNairda Feb 26 '13 at 10:55
    
... Fair enough. –  Shadur Feb 26 '13 at 11:25
    
I don't play that much DOTA anymore, but I think it was possible with LifeStealer, and the druid champion that has a bear companion (I forgot his name) –  user41604 Feb 26 '13 at 12:23
    
@MegaNairda Did you even read the answer to that question? Lycan, Enigma, Ursa, Venomancer, and Syllabear, all heroes listed as effective Roshan killers, are easily capable of soloing him from levels 6-10. I get the questions are different, but the answer remains almost exactly the same. –  Kotsu Feb 26 '13 at 18:11
    
@Kotsu The same attributes help, but one that's more emphasized when soloing is lifesteal. Having the ability to sustain tankiness for quite a bit helps, too. –  Decency Feb 27 '13 at 6:01

Asides from Ursa, some of the better heroes for soloing Roshan from levels 6-10 are:

  • Enigma: Using Eidolons and a Medallion of Courage. You may also need a Soul Ring to keep your mana pool up. The idea here is to cast cast Medallion on him to reduce his armor to greatly increase your Eidolons' DPS. As MadCom mentions below, Medallion doesn't proc Roshan's spell shield so you don't have to worry about him blocking it.

  • Venomancer: Using Plague Wards. Create a wall of wards between you and Roshan and you should be able to right click him to death.

  • Lycan: Using his wolves and a Vladimir's Offering. Shift aggro appropriately to tank damage.

  • Lone Druid: Using his bear and a Vladimir's Offering. Shift aggro appropriately to tank damage.

  • Troll Warlord: With points into Fervor and Battle Trance and either Vladimir's Offering or a Helm of the Dominator. It's also recommended you switch into melee form for faster attack speed, health, and damage (also, Vladimir's Offering wouldn't work if you were in ranged form anyways).

You don't need to use Malefice. Medalion doesn't proc Roshan's spell shield (also Linken). –  MadCom Feb 27 '13 at 7:25
    
@MadCom Good to know, edited my answer. –  Kotsu Feb 27 '13 at 18:40
    
Please add Troll Warlord to this list. With Fervor at level 3 or 4 and Battle Trance at level 2 it is possible to do him at level 11 solo. –  Christian Ivicevic Mar 7 '13 at 21:36
    
@ChristianIvicevic OP asked for heroes who can solo him from levels 6-10. –  Kotsu Mar 8 '13 at 15:25
    
At level 10 it is still possible yet dependent on the RNG whether you get stunned too often. The second point in Battle Trance can help though it is not necessary. –  Christian Ivicevic Mar 8 '13 at 15:42

Troll Warlord can solo roshan, just use and use his rampage.

Try Drow. If you have a well equipped L8+ Drow, she can kite and kill Roshan. You need to rush in and start pelting Roshan with ice arrows (Drow's orb). When Roshan gets too close, back off and let it retreat. Then attack it again. Repeat till dead.

If Roshan can be stunned, couldn't Sniper do it just as easily? How much chasing mobs slow down due to Drow's orb is roughly the same as how much mobs slow down due to mini-stuns from Sniper. –  Sadly Not Feb 27 '13 at 5:28
    
Drow's ultimate is what really makes the difference here, which applies to most of her attacks and makes each attack all the more powerful. Sniper has stun, but the per move attack is not that high at early levels. –  Prasad Feb 27 '13 at 8:17
    
I forgot about Drow's ultimate, yes her damage should be higher and she will clear quicker. –  Sadly Not Mar 2 '13 at 17:42
    
The enemy team is likely to spot you if you have to kite ... –  BlueTrin May 3 '13 at 11:57

I've been able to solo Roshan with Nature's Prophet at level 10. Although it's not been as quick and easy as soloing it with Ursa.
At level 10 you should have ability points spent like this:

  • Sprout : 2
  • Teleportation : 3
  • Nature's Call : 4
  • Wrath of Nature : 1

And you should have bought Ring of Basilius (that adds an armor bonus aura to nearby allies) in order to give a slightly more armor bonus to your Treant.
The generic tactic is using your Treants to tank Roshan, and with Nature's Call at level 5, you can spawn 5 Treants every 37 seconds. Also you can combo-cast Sprout and Nature's Call in order to position your Treants faster.
Otherwise, if you would like to save more mana, you can move in the nearby jungle and cast Ns'C there, then moving into Roshan with your trees.
It will take some time to kill Roshan this way, but you could be able to do it without moving back to the base to recover your mana.

Rasta can easily kill rosh at level 6. If you can put the wards nicely (able to block him) then you can just go near him and then attack rosh. What happens is rosh will try to attack you (not the wards). But you are out of his range so he will just keep tryin to attack you until he dies.

This is only true for DotA1. In DotA2 you can no longer trap roshan with Plague Wards Source –  Wandang Feb 19 at 12:37

Invoker is able to with 4 points into Quas and Exort for double forge spirits.

He has to have his units all split the damage taken.

Here is a video where the guy buys Helm of the Dominator.

And controls a 4th guy to tank it.

It's more efficient to buy a medallion for the - armor and 2 or 3 salves (tank with your hero until half health, then heal up while minions split damage) since Invoker doesn't hit hard enough for a Satanic to be worthwhile. Also medallion is usable on enemy heroes who die extremely fast then to forge spirit focus fire.
