Raigor Stonehoof - The Earthshaker Guide

Background History : 
raigor-earthshaker welovedotas.blogspot.com

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

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.
