Pick Zeus if your team need nukers in early games.
Don't pick Zeus if the gameplay pushing you to play late game.


in DotA, Mid lane is suited best for Zeus. But if your ally doesn't like it. Go to the lane that you can't pulls your creeps into neutral creeps.

Early game's Strategy

Empty bottle will suited zeus well in. Pick PU often See the item guide for Empty Bottle. With empty Bottle, it will easy for you to attacking your enemy with your skills. Often to do ganking when you are lvl 5 up.

Mid game's Strategy

In mid game, it will just like in early games. But i think your item will well build if you play Zeus properly. Ganking is suited you best. Just try to make enemy's carry hard to farming with all of your active skill :D.

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy

When on war or ganking, Zeus was feared by much of player. They will tried to killing you first. So FoW is the best way for you. With 700 range skill, it will easy for you to hide in the fog. Buy "Observer Ward" if necessary to ease you ganking enemy in the neutral creeps.

Late game's Strategy

Hard for zeus to stand feared in late game. Almost all of Zeus's skill will only scratching enemy. Ghost Scepter will helped you out much. See the item guide for Ghost Scepter.

A darkness who was ancient even in the early days of the world's existence, Mercurial is the embodiment of rage and vengeance in the souls of those long dead. Haunting her enemies with relentless fervor, she is able to throw a dagger-like projectile that allows her to chase her prey beyond physical boundaries, and the fear and the desolation struck in the hearts of those who have the misfortune of encountering her alone is a pain impossible to withstand. Spectre's thirst for destruction is insatiable, and the upcoming struggle seems to be just what she was waiting for.

3 1 1 lane is suited best for Spectre. But if your ally doesn't like it. Go to the lane that you can pulls your creeps into neutral creeps.

Early game's Strategy

Spectre is Carry hero, just keep farming until you got radiance. Carry hero's way to success is just two : Die less than 3 and farming until die XD.

Mid game's Strategy

In mid game, Try to be safe when you enter the war. Just come to the war if one of your enemy have very less HP. Still focus on farming. Keep your money until you can buy Radiance. But if your team is in losing position, just buy Blade Mail first. With blade mail you can participate war often.

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy

When on war or ganking, You just need to come with Haunt, and kill enemy with less HP. It is different when you have Radiance / Blade Mail. There are two types : you can become initiator which open the war, or become semi initiator which come to war exactly after war is occured.

Late game's Strategy

Like i said before in Traxex Guide, It's carry's responsibility to drive his team to victory. In equally strong late game, The death of carry can rotate all of the road game. Don't be so proud of yourself and do committed suicide by come to the tiger's nest alone. XD

Okay, that's all for Spectre DotA Guide. Enjoy DotA Gamers !

Why Warcraft III(DotA) is better than DotA 2

Hello DotA Gamers, today i want to share why i still choose Warcraft III(DotA) than DotA 2. The main reason why DotA Gamers move to DotA 2 is the better graph and effect. This difference of graph and effect is very big. So why people like me still love Warcraft III? Here are some reason that explained it :

  1. We have many memory on DotA that can't be replaced with DotA 2. I started playing DotA from DotA 6.27 map until now(DotA 6.77 map). 50 version changed XD.
  2. There are many other exciting custom map beside DotA in Warcraft III. For example : DotA LoD, Legion TD, etc.
  3. The custom map is from fans to fans. It's become a close bond to us, Warcraft fans XD.
  4. Many unexpected custom maps that can still be developed from Warcraft III.
  5. Open sources custom map that make  fans can participate in the development.
DotA 2 welovedotas.blogspot.comWarcraft III

What can i conclude is the better graphic and effect make gamers feel more comfortable with the game. But still, the more choice of exciting game can beat it. How about you, DotA Gamers??

Difference Between DotA[Warcraft III] vs DotA 2[Valve Corp]

Hello DotA Gamers ! Do you know what the difference between DotA[Warcraft III] and DotA 2[Valve]?There maybe many people who still don't know the difference. Especially about Dota 2, because there are still many people who haven't been able to enjoy it. Included me XD. There are many reason why i still love DotA than DotA 2. Okay, back to the topic, so what the difference?

  • Graphic
    • Even i don't say this, all of you surely know this difference. Dota 2 in 3D element is more prominent along with stunning skill effects are more detailed when compared to DotA. Of course, DotA 2 made by Ice Frog and Valve Corp which also makes games such as Counter Strike, Left 4 Dead, Half Life, etc. Different with DotA which is just a custom map of Warcraft III. It is limited by the Warcraft III's graph have. 
    • In Dota 2, all model hero has changed. Some of them look more cool(Vengeful Spirit), weird(Shadow Shaman), pretty(Lina Inverse), ugly(Magina), etc XD 
  • System Requirement
    • As you know, DotA requires only a very low system specs. Even Pentium III is still compatible i think( If now mistaken, i used to play on Pentium III before). That's very different with DotA 2. the better the graphics of the game  also needed the better System Requirement. But i think the technology grown fast. Like Apple Inc. that just released iPhone 5(My dreamed phone T.T)
  • Gameplay
    • DotA 2 player can Re-Connect before five minutes after he was cut off from the internet. This idea maybe taken from HoN. I think many people has know that in DotA, if we lose connection, it mean we leave the game. So i think this feature is required thing nowadays.
    • Shortcut key. In DotA, we know that all heroes have different shortcut key. That make us must use Warkey for ease. But in DotA 2, there are two mode that we can use. Firstly, is default shortcut key which is same with  DotA's shortcut have. And the second one is Q-W-E-R, that once again same with HoN. 
    • there is a feature that greatly simplify the player to play on Dota 2, when you play DotA  sometimes happens that you are lost control of your heros, and you had to press the F1 key, or click the hero's photo frame on the top, so it may take time to realize. In Dota 2 you just need to right click on any place, and the control hero (not visual) will immediately return to you.
  • Cool AI Sound System Effect
    • What i mean of sound system in here is not the same with your home theatre XD. In DotA, the hero voice is very limited. It just have 3 models, firstly when the hero was choosen, the second is when you moving your hero, and the third is when you do attack. In DotA 2, many sound effect are added. Here are the example :
      • When you brought an item that compatible with your hero. For example, you brought Aghanim for Lich. She will say "Hmm, Scepter".
      • When you using skill. For example, Puck-Fairie Dragons. Puck will say " i'm here, i'm here" if you teleport using the illusory orb.
      • When some heroes meet. For example, Lina Inverse and Maiden. I don't know what they said. But it is different. Try it, and give me know if you know what they said XD.

Best Dota Hero Item

Usually professional people will buy some item that we think it isn't worth it. But they still buy it, because they know the item will be very useful seen from situation and condition(What i mean is the enemy's heroes choice, our choice, and the lane condition) It's complicated that make me hard to explained it XD. I'll try to explained it one by one with the item, Check this out :

Magic Wand (Energy Charge (Does not stack))
When enemy casts a spell around you (1200), you gain 1 charge. Maximum 15 charges. When you cast the item, you instantly regenerate 15 hp and 15 mana for each charge. Certain abilities, such as arrow abilites (Frost Arrow, Poison Attack, etc) and item abilities, will not add a charge. Buy 509

Recipe :

  • Magic stick : 200 gold
  • Ironwood Branch 3x : 53x3=159
  • Recipe : 150 Gold

This item is useful if :

  • Our enemy in the lane condition : There are many heroes with active skill. Best use if your enemy have spam skill(Bristleback).
  • Our hero condition : Our hero are INT/AGI. Str usually doesn't buy this item. Ganker usually buy this item too. 
  • Our Skill : Don't buy this if you can't press the shortcut key of our item quickly. Using warkey will help you out. 

Why this item is useful :

  • Mana regenerate advantage : When our mana is drained out, you can use this item. XD
  • HP regenerate advantage : In early game, Heroes enemy mana usually is very low. So usually, we die because we got hit. not by skill. Because of that, we can use this magic stick to save ourself. 

Empty Bottle

It can store healing water for up to 3 uses (cast on Fountain), each healing 135 HP and 75 mana over 3 seconds. It can be used to capture magical runes for 2 minutes. No mana cost.Buy 600.

This item is useful if :

  • Gameplay condition : There are no -np(no powerup) game command.
  • Our hero condition : Our hero are Ganker / Support heroes. 
  • Our Skill : Don't buy this if you can't press the shortcut key of our item quickly. Using warkey will help you out. You can download warkey for dota here

Why this item is useful :

  • Runes Advantage : Ganking is much easier with the runes. Runes can fill the empty bottle too.
  • Mana and HP regenerate Advantage : Remember, ganking usually reduced our HP much more than farming on the lane. So, rather than back to fountain, ganker hero can save his time with this item.

The Part 2 is here. There are still many best item. But i need time to review it one by one. So just wait until another part is out XD.

DotA 6.76c AI Map

DotA AI 6.76c
The Official DotA 6.76c AI Map will take weeks to release because of massive amount of changes from 6.75/6.76. The developer PBMN(PleaseBugMeNot) will have to sucessfully implement each and every change in a sequence to make the AI map work. When the map releases, it will support Arc Warden and Winter Wyvern AI.

Unfortunetaly, The developer  PBMN(PleaseBugMeNot) , still busy because he is moving to a new country(Germany). And from his latest blog, he said :

"I`m still in a process of renting a flat in Germany(Munich)... apparently this is a very hard thing, even if you can pay for it. Please, stop filling my inbox asking for links. No work is done on the map yet, so there are no links. I`m getting the files i need soon and i may begin preparing the port... but i can`t work without a workstation. Developing on a tablet is impossible :)

Hopefully things will change for the better before the holidays."
Thursday, November 15, 2012

So, just be patient about it. But, don't worry ! A Chinese DotA AI Developer "DotaER" has released an unofficial version of DotA 6.76c AI. It is fully compatible with v6.76c. You can enjoy this map until the official version comes out.

Here are the link : DotA 6.76c AI Map(ENG)

Hope you enjoy it .

DotA 6.76c Changelog Review

Take a look on this Dota 6.76c ChangeLog :

Stampede cooldown increased from 65 to 120/90/60
* Stampede duration rescaled from 3/4/5 to 3.75
* Stampede damage slightly reworked from 100/150/200 + 2x str to 0 + 1/2/3x str (no base damage)
* Stampede mancost increased from 50 to 80
* Stampede AoE reduced from 120 to 105
* Drow's base armor decreased by 2
* Marksmanship focus AoE increased from 375 to 400
* Last Word manacost from 100 to 115
* Living Armor cooldown and duration decreased from from 20 to 15
* Living Armor manacost decreased 30/35/40/45 to 25
* Fixed an exploit with Enfeeble allowing it to be perma stuck on the enemy in some situations
* Fixed some lag when Centaur initially casts Stampede
* Centaur restricted from Captain's Mode
* Fixed a couple of bugs with -TagTeam mode
* Fixed Force Staff shop hotkey
* Fixed various tooltip
There are still unfixed item price on 6.76c. Take a look on Mask of Madness. It price 900 on beside it's name, and 1000 on below.

Centaur restricted from Captain's Mode, that mean Centaur is still imbalance. I play many time with this new Centaur. Stampede is just too good which removes unit collision and increases movement speed of all allied units on the map and has its damage output provided by running through enemies, temporarily stunning them.]

Drow Ranger
Drow's become more dangerous on 6.76 with the changelog on.6.76b. Look like because of it's ultimate skill(Markmanship) which passively provides bonus agility and if there are no nearby enemy heroes, your focus improves and the bonus agility is doubled, Drow's base armor decreased due to its improvement.

Tiny - The Stone Giant Guide Build

Background History : 

Tiny-The Stone Giant
Looming from the rocky crags of Ashenra, the stone giants are born from the mountain itself. Tiny, a newly born giant, although small in size, has the strength of a hill. With his supreme strength, he is able to launch anything into the air, including huge amounts of soil to cause avalanches around his enemies. Because of his craggy exterior, enemies have a hard time attacking him. Over time, Tiny's body will grow bigger as the magnetic forces deep inside his granite heart pull rocks and soil to his rugged stone form.

Roles :

  1. Ganker/Disabler
  2. Support/Warder

Capabilities : 
1. Base attack damage is superior
2. 2 Nuke's skill
3. One of the best ganker
4. Anti-melee

Weakness :
1. Attack speed and movement speed is horrible
2. Oversized ! XD


1.Avalanche : Bombards an area with rocks stunning and damaging enemy land units. Casting range 600. AoE 200.

2.Toss : Tiny grabs the nearest unit, friend or foe, and launches them at a location. Upon landing, the unit deals damage in an area as well as receiving 20% of that damage to themselves (this damage increases as your size increases). Cannot toss Dragon Knight in Elder Form. Area of efek 300 (target),275 ( tossed)

3. Craggy Exterior : Tiny's body is made of solid granite, causing great pain to those who attack it. Whenever a melee unit attacks Tiny, there is a chance that they will be stunned for 1.2 seconds.

4.GROW! : Greatly increases Tiny's power and size, but does so at the cost of his attack speed. Improves toss damage and slightly increases movespeed.

Early Item

Tiny Usually buy courier, because his role is Support then, they buy tango, ironwood branch, clarity

-Soul Ring
-Boots of Speed

Core Item
-Arcane boots
-Kelen's Dagger

Alternative Item
-Empty Bottle
-Boot of Travel

Luxury Item
-Shiva's Guard
-Etheral Blade
-Aghanim's Sceptre

Pick Tiny if :
1. You like the role of ganker
2. Most of your enemy is INT

Don't Pick tiny if :
1. Most of your allies have picked ganker type hero
2. You are coward ! Support Hero just use by brave people only ! XD

Go with support type hero(At least, they have stun) or maybe nuker is the best for tiny. Usually tiny will do first blood. Farming in early game is hard for tiny. So keep calm and don't stressed out if you can't do last hitted on creep XD.

Early game's Strategy.
Farming will be hard, keep farming until at least you got mana boot's. But, if your friend ask you to ganking, do it. Tiny is easy use for ganking. just toss and avalanche XD.

For toss and avalanche, many people say that using avalanche first, will make avalanche's damage doubled. But for me, i rather to use toss first rather than avalanche. Pro people can evading avalanche due to the delay skill of avalanche. But in early game, avalanche first is okay, because it is hard to get near to enemy.

Mid game's Strategy.
Mid game mean your toss and avalanche is in max level. Farming will be easy as make a fart. So try to saving your money to get Kellen of dagger's and Dagon. Like usual, Do ganking often for stressing your enemyXD.

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy
When on war, Try to blink to Nukers /Disabler/ Support  enemy's side. Then just do Toss and avalanche. After that, try to stay on war(due to your role : Tanker) or maybe catch the running enemy, But don't hit them, If you hit them, the distance between you and enemy will be the further. Do the combo to kill enemy.

When on Ganking, it will be the same with on war, the different is when you doesn't have dagger, Tossing your friend to enemy is the best choice. But remember to toss someone who have disabler skill.

  • Pick Traxex if your team need Carry / you are pros in farming.
  • Don't pick Traxex if your enemy have to many Gankers or Nuker / your team have to many agi hero.


Traxex is flexible, you can go anywhere. Choose wisely, usually, i'll go solo or go with support type hero(At least, they have stun).

Early game's Strategy

Traxex is Carry hero which will dangerous on late game. So just keep farming safely. Carry heroes's way to success is just two : Die < 3 and Farming until die XD

Mid game's Strategy

In mid game, traxex usually still like chubby. it still cute and doesn't often killed enemy. Don't be so sad if your just got a few kill. Still focus on farming. Just Lothar / yasha doesn't give you much advantage to evolve into Beast !  farming until you got at least 2 Luxury Item.

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy

When on war or ganking, Traxex is easy to use. We just need to seek enemy with a lowest HP, silence him and if possible silence him with another, then hit him until die. That will become some of looping until your life in danger. The tips is just one. Try to stay on the fog in the war. This helping you to get less damage from nukers and to ease your escape.

Late game's Strategy

Heroes always show up in last. It's carry's responsibility to drive his team to victory. In equally strong late game, The death of carry can rotate all of the road game. Don't be so proud of yourself and do committed suicide by come to the tiger's nest alone. XD

Mogul Khan- Axe Guide(Reccomended for Newbie)

Background History : 
Axe-Mogul Khan.
In the war of Humans and Orcs that occured long ago many Orcish warriors were corrupted by demonic influence and became tools of blackest darkness. One such warrior was the leader of the Half-Tribe of the Bloodied Axe Clan; Mogul Kahn. Mogul was slain by human Paladins but mysteriously was seen fighting alongside the Scourge around the time Mannoroth started to command the Orcs in the war against Archimonde. The Axe has been revived by demons and uses his reflexes and powerful blows to hunt down and seek out the Sentinels' agile warriors and cut them down to size, even projecting his lust for war onto them.

Roles :
1. Tanker(Primary)
2. Initiator
3. Killer(On Early Game)

NB :  search on dota dictionary if you doesn't know what is tanker(use CTRL+F for search)

Capabilities : 

  • Best Tanker heroes on DotA(before is Centaur, but in 6.76c, i think Axe is the best tanker now)
  • Easy to use(Usually dota player using this heroes in his/him first time)
  • Instant killer due to the ultimate skills.
  • Can make good entrance on war.

Weakness :

  • In mid game or late game, Axe is useless
  • Doesn't have stun skill's, its rarely for STR heroes.
  • His movement speed is to low.


1. Berseker Call :Mogul Kahn focuses all of his enemies' hatred on him, causing them to attack him at all costs.
NB: Spell Immunity and invisible enemy is affected.

2.Battlehunger  : Afflicts a target with a terrible killing hunger. The target will take damage per second until it kills a unit.
NB: DPS and can make slow too. Enemy can stopped the effect of this skill after killing creep or tower.

3.Counter Helix.Mogul Kahn counters some blows made to him dealing damage to all nearby enemy units.(Passive Skill)

NB: This skill have 17% chance after enemy's hero or creeps hitted on you to activated. Very usefull on early game. You can block enemy creeps with your body.

4. Culling Blade(shortkey = C). Purges the weak from Mogul Kahn's sight. Deals moderate damage, but will kill a target that is low on life.
NB: You can do Instant kill for enemy which have HP under 300,450,600. Aganim is stuck on this skill. Casting range = 150.

2 - Berserker's Call

Early Item
  • Ancient Tree Tango
  • Stout's Shield 2x

Core Item
-Boot of Speed

Another Important Item

-Kellen of Dagger
-Phase boot's
-Blade Mail

NB : You can buy Ghost Staff if it necessary.

Luxury Item

-Khadgar Pipe
-Assault Cuiras
-Heart of Tarasque
-Aghanim's Sceptre


-Pick Axe if you are newbie on dota or  your team need tanker.
-Don't pick axe if your team need carry or you are pros on dota.

Never do solo lane. bottom or up lane is best for axe. You can block enemies creep on middle of first tower and second tower's enemy. But do this is your enemy isn't INT. Best use if your enemy is melee(except raigor or another hero which have many active skill). This is why axe can't become carry.

Early game's Strategy

In early game, if you do like the above, you will be rich. Buy the core items. And after that, you must see on the condition, if you think you can saving your gold until buy Daggers, than do that. If not, you can buy Phase Boot's first.

Mid game's Strategy
I think your "Counter Helix" doesn't give you much advantage now. Blade Mail is the best choice for Mid game.

War game's Strategy

Dagger, Berseker Call, click on Blade Mail, wait 3-5 second and hear "Triple Kill" on your audio XD. You are tanker, so your job is initiator.

Raigor Stonehoof - The Earthshaker Guide

Background History : 

In the barren-lands, tales spoke of tauren sages reaping the essence of dirt. Their consciousness melds with the brown beneath them. The loam becomes the conduit of their mental thought and reality. These warriors were feared for they could summon massive ruptures at their mere whim. So tremendous was their power that their magic leaks out of the earth violently with every spell. Sadly these sages mysteriously faded from the land. When the World Tree was threatened, couriers searched these mighty ones but found just one. A young adept, Raigor Stonehoof, seeks battle to weave new tales of these shamans.

Roles :
1. Initiator(Primary)
2. Ganker
3. Support

NB :  search on dota dictionary if you doesn't know what is initiator or ganker(use CTRL+F for search)

Capabilities : 

  • Almost all skills are Stun ability because of aftershock
  • Pretty much item independent after purchase of Blink Dagger
  • Best Initiator on DotA
  • Good for support.

Weakness :

  • Mana problems early game but can be fixed through items like Mana boot's or soul ring
  • It squishy like a fruit. Just touch it and raigor is die.
  • The skill's delay is too long. He must pulling up those huge weapon before use skill, so it's normal XD.
  • INT and AGI is very horrible.
  • Raigor usually die after making a good entrance on war.

Ah, i think nobody want to read the detail of the skill's. So i just pass on it and just give a little explanation on here XD

Fissure-Raigor(ES) welovedotas.blogspot.com1. Fissure (shortkey = F) : For stunning, it slams the ground with the Raigor's mighty totem, causing the ground to crack open front of him, damaging opponents and leaving an impassable crevasse for a period of time.
NB: Fissure can't be block by linken, range is impressive enough for stunning(Casting range1200). Can make a block in a line.

Enchant Totem-Raigor welovedotas.blogspot.com2.Enchant Totem  (shortkey = E): Empowers the totem resting on Raigor's back, causing it to deal extra damage on the next attack.
NB: Very impressive skill's on DotA LoD if you got jinada too XD


3.Aftershock.The power of Raigor casting a spell causes the earth to shake below him, dealing additional damage and stunning. AoE 300

NB: This skill make raigor is raigor XD. not stuck with another item's spell like dagon, shiva, or else. Can't be block by linken.

Echo Slam-Raigor(ES) welovedotas.blogspot.com4. Echo Slam(shortkey = C). Raigor sends shockwaves shooting through the ground, dealing damage ricocheting to nearby targets for additional damage.AoE 500

Early Item

  • Ancient Tree Tango
  • Circlet of Nobility
  • Clarity potion
  • Iroonwood Branch
  • Ward or Courier(If your friend has bought it,buy sobi mask)

Core Item
-Soul Ring
-Arcane Boots
-Kellen of Daggers


Pick raigor if your team need initiator, need stunner, your enemy have to much agi or int.
Don't pick raigor if your enemy is picking Lucifer or clockwerk. Your team doesn't have hitter.

Never do solo lane, your money come from your fissure, believe me. So buy soul ring and arcane boots as fast as you can. If you want to do first blood, do threesome on bottom lane with your ally(scourge, for sentinel the opposite) XD.

Mid game's Strategy

In mid game, do ganking often. This thing make two advantages for your ally. If the enemy die, you got exp and money, if you failed to do it, your enemy at least will go back to his mommy on their fountain. Dagger on here is very important item. so just buy it as fast as you can XD.

War's Strategy

No need to think again, just do dagger echo fissure and go die already XD
NB : the best time for using echo is when the enemies is gathering arround with the creeps. remember, ENEMIES(more than one XD)

Late game's Strategy?

You must be pro if you use Raigor until late game's XD. Why? It because your enemy is pro, so i don't think you are newbie if you can hold it until late game's XD.
