Introduction:
This is going to be a compilation of short guides for each champion in the game. This guide is more focused on beginners. When I first started playing Dota, Piemonger's guide to every hero helped me out a ton by telling me what items to get, what skills to go, and a short description of how to play the hero. If anyone has any additions/suggestions/comments, please feel free to shout out! I don't know how to play a few of the heroes as well as possible, so I'll be taking guide suggestions from the higher-rated ELO players in League of Legends. Also note that this isn't the end-all guide to a champion, it's just one way to play them, and it works.

Ashe's role in the game is obviously the 'carry'. She is designed to be a high damage
dealer during the late portion of the game. More specifically, her slows and her stuns allow her to set up ganks until she can actually become useful with her damage late game. Many people overlook this trait and instead focus too much on farming, leaving their team outnumbered for a large portion of the game. You should focus on farming up your veil as quickly as possible early game. If you're not doing well in a lane, ask for a switch. It is extremely important that you do this early.

Lich is probably one of my favorite heroes in the game. He's extremely powerful both early and late game. Lay Waste is fantastic for overpowering any hero 1v1. In a lane against Ashe (or any squishy hero) you should be harassing, chasing, and getting kills. Defile costs too much mana to actually use offensively early on, so unless you're sure it'll net you a kill, don't use it against champions. One point is taken in Wall of Pain since more than one is usually an overkill. Your job in teamfights is to lead off with wall, and then proceed to Defile/Lay Waste spam. Remember, you can cast after dying so take that advantage, to throw out a wall and get some kills! You should also be constantly aware of enemy champion's health, as your ultimate will hit every champion on the map. Beware, if you get killed while it is channeling, it will cancel and you'll be down an ultimate.

Kayle, The Judicator

17. Diving Blessing/Intervention
18. Diving Blessing/Intervention

- Sorcerer's Treads
- Mejai's Soulstealer
- Lichbane
- Rod of Ages/Zhonya's Ring

Playing Judicator as an ability power machine really is the way to go. Reckoning is a huge damage nuke which can easily be spammed in a lane, keeping enemy champions at bay. Intervention will allow you to tower dive and chase, especially if the enemy has that one Reckoning hit left. Righteous Fury will give a ton of damage to Judicator. Coupled with reckoning, you should have no problem taking enemies down. You can play Judicator as a tank and pick up Warmog's/FoN and other tank items, but I prefer playing her as a carry.

Sivir is fairly strange hero. Her skills offer no escape, she gets no true 'carry' ability, and she gets killed fairly easily. But all that doesn't detract from her true power - as a pusher!

You can use Sivir's nuke to take out entire waves of minions, quickly making your way to a tower. Ricochet will let you clean up the few minions that don't get hit by the nuke. Using On the Hunt near a tower will pretty much guarantee a tower kill. Remember, it buffs minions as well as allied champions, so make sure to take advantage of it! You should be teleporting around the map, pushing as many towers as you can as Sivir.

- Tear of the Goddess
- Berserker's Greaves or Sorcerer's Shoes
- Lichbane
- Rod of Ages or Banshee's Veil

Even though Twisted Fate's cards have gone through a ton of changes, his role as a pusher is still the same. Putting more than one point into Pick a Card early on is pointless, since Wild Cards will put out more damage and is most potent early on. Gate allows you to traverse the entire map quickly and Tear will give you the mana to spam your Wild Cards all day. Pick a Card can be freely casted with no penalty, as it costs very little mana to use.


Twitch, The Plague Rat

1. Expunge
2. Ambush
3. Expunge
4. Debilitating Poison

18. Debilitating Poison

- Boots of Swiftness
- Black Cleaver
- Phage
- Infinite Edge

Twitch's abilities all synergize very well, making him an excellent ganker as well as having great lane control. His passive gives him the ability to harass an enemy champion early on with just your normal autoattack. Expunge will put out tons of damage and has a relatively low manacost. One point in Debilitating Poison is taken early just so you can pump out more shots into the enemy, and as a chasing utility until you get your phage. Spray and Pray should be used against towers, as it is extremely easy to dodge and will get you killed if you try and use it against champions. You don't really need more than one point in Ambush early on either, since you won't have any trouble reaching the maximum poison stacks of (6).


Veigar

1. Baleful Strike
2. Event Horizon
3. Baleful Strike
4. Dark Matter
5. Baleful Strike
6. Primordial Burst

17. Event Horizon
18. Event Horizon

- Tear of the Goddess
- Sorcerer's Shoes
- Mejai's Soulstealer
- Zhonya's Ring
- Archangel's Staff

Veigar's are a little bit more difficult to learn than your average nuker. You should be using your baleful strike to last hit creeps for extra ability power and harassing your opponent as it gets stronger. Dark Matter is a fantastic farming ability as well as a large AoE nuke. If you use it in conjunction with Event Horizon, you can usually hit enemy champions with it every time. His ultimate is fantastic against heroes that rush Tear such as Lich and Cryopheonix. In teamfights, try to use your Event Horizon in a way where it stuns as many people as possible. His items are fairly self explanatory: He should be getting as much ability power as possible. If you're having trouble surviving, I suggest picking up a Rod of Ages or a Frozen Heart.

1. Hungering Strike

- Madred's Razor
- Berserker's Greaves
- Phage/Frozen Mallet
- Infinity Edge/Bloodthirster/Black Cleaver
- Banshee's Veil

Warwick is a relatively weak hero until you realize all his abilities make him fantastic at killing neutral minion camps in the jungle. I don't want to go in depth with a jungling guide, since TiberiousAudley has written a fantastic one already. I highly suggest learning to jungle with him, since he can't do much in a lane. Infinite Duress is a fantastic ganking/chasing/initiating tool. Not only can you initiate your slow with it (Phage/Lizard), but using it on an important champion will turn the tide of a battle, since it's basically a guaranteed kill. Your job will be the late game carry. You should be assisting lanes with ganks early on, as you can chase pretty well with Blood Scent.

Zilean, The Master of Time

- Mejai's Soulstealer
- Rod of Ages
- Zhonya's Ring

Zilean is a heavy support hero that you can play two different ways. The first is the one that's probably a bit more fun but less useful. Time Bomb is a fantastic farming/harassing tool that puts a timed nuke on an enemy. Stacking ability power to give your Time Bomb some serious damage output can potentially do 1000+ damage to the entire team! Using Time Warp will slow an enemy or speed up an ally. It's hard to really judge when to use it, but generally if an ally is trying to catch up to use an ability it should be used on them. Try to use your ultimate (Chrono Shift) near-death. Using it too early could be a waste. Chrono Shift is fantastic for making an entire team waste their ultimates to kill one champion to ultimately see them rise again.

Rewind will refresh the cooldown on Time Bomb completely, allowing you to place two at once as well as shorten Chrono Shift and Time Warp's cooldown greatly.

Working on it :P

Don't think I'll finish in 2 hours though. There are a few heroes that I'm iffy on that I have to ask people about.

More conceptual explanation/skill synergy, less skill builds. The builds aren't necessarily always like that depending on match up; Dota heroes generally don't have any better alternatives than their "ideal build" like nuke/stats/nuke/stats, as well as having (relatively) useless "filler" skills.

Just from reading Ashe's section, I still can't tell what Ashe is capable of, and even if I build according to this guide, what do I do with those skills?

Edit: still, looking forward to a huge guide.

This is going to be a barebones guide for beginners - I'm going to be adding in a 'how to play' section for each hero.

It's just nice if you're starting out the game, since actually being good at LoL requires knowledge of what each hero does. Also, you don't have to ask 'what skills should I get' and 'what items should I go' every game :P

You should also add a section where you explain what a skill does and how people use it, because seeing it from a beginners perspective is better for them to know how each skill is used than to know in what order to get them.

I might do something like this after I finish doing builds/explanations, but I'll probably just include a short description of how the hero works and how to use the skills.

Why is it impossible to find a decent taric guide. Is he really that terrible?

you don't need a decent taric guide to be a decent taric. He's hella von shizzle with the fabulous razzle dazzle rockin his bling and shattering your nizzle, dog.

nice work Veritas. Quite a fan.

Not sure if this guide is the place for it, but I really want to see something about item utility early on. Personally, if I'm anything ranged that will need a rod of ages / tear of the goddess / banshee's veil I'm nabbing the mana stone for a bit extra in the tank and also to push towards that item. A lot of players will follow the cookie cutter regen item that their character's shop suggests, without considering what they're building it towards, or better yet they'll get a philo stone because it's a philo stone. Useful, absolutely, but not always.

Granted, maybe this is the guide for me to write...
thanks again.
