I recently played an all random 3 vs 3.
I was Centaur, and became primarily responsible for stopping Wraith King, which I failed at. (My teammates were Tusk and Witch Doctor)
We quickly dispatched of the other opponents, and managed to kill WK once, but then his reincarnation would kick in and we'd be out of mana/life/everything else, and the best we could do was to scare him off.
Because of his life-steal, it took way to long to kill him.
I'm trying to figure out what I should have done?
When we lost I was trying to build a Heaven's halberd, hoping that him loosing his lifesteal would be enough, but I only finished it at around the time they got mega-creeps, and everything was over.
I'm now trying to figure out more generally how I should deal with damage heavy life stealers.
Some options I see.
- Heavens halberd allows us to disarm the opponent for a while, hopefully allowing us to kill him.
- Butterfly. Permanent evasion should be a direct cost to the opponents lifesteal.
- Diffusal blade. Take all his mana away and deny him reincarnation. (Somewhat specific to Wraith King, though other heroes could have other abilities we'd like to deny them.)
Other options? How should think when I try to decide which item will give me to largest upper hand?
