Tiny - The Stone Giant Guide Build

Background History : 

Tiny-The Stone Giant welovedotas.blogspot.com
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.

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.
