Why maxed Spawn Spiderling first? This will gives you a great nuke for early game which is important to get 1-2 kills on early game. 225-300 damage (lvl 3-) of Spawn Spiderling is a decent damage to kill some squishy heroes. Actually you can maxed Spin Web first if you want more mobility.

Why the last maxed is Incapacitrating Bite? This skill will do 'more' in mid-late game, this skill depends on your ight click which is will be your weapon in mi-late game. On early-mid game, your main weapon is Spawn Spiderlings and Web.

Item Build and Gameplay

Early Game Items:
  • Ring of Protection
  • Tango
  • Clarity
  • Iron Branch
  • Iron Branch
Core Items:
  • Ring of Basilius
  • Power Treads
Set up Spin Web since the earliest stage of the game, place it in your lane and use it to be invisible or to regen some Hp. Beware of Sentry Wards on early game, a good opponent will place sentry in your web. But don't worry, you have a high movespeed, you just need to position yourself not behind enemy's creeps. Remember to start raising small spiders using Spawn Spiderlings. Sould ring and Obilivion Staff can helps you to maintain your mana. Gather force of small spiders and make yourself get lots of Spiderlings on early game. You need force of Spiders and use them to push towers as quikcly as possible, noo need to hold your creeps and spiders, the faster you destroy the tower the better. You are the fastest pusher in DotA, show off your skill. Make a link between your webs so you can always invisible in your lane, near tower or far from the tower.

Mid Game Items:
  • Vladmirs Offering
  • Orchid Malevolence
Remember to keep pushing. You can stay in your lane, no matter what happens in another lane. You should leave over the duty of ganking and teamfight to your team in other lane, and your part is to keep camping in one lane, and keep destroying towers and barrack. Keep gather Spiders force and use it to destroys towers. If 4 or 5 enemies try to gank you, just run through your webs that you have already prepared before you push. If that happens (4-5 man ganks you, then your teammates should be pushing the other lane and make the enemies can't keep with that fast changing lane pushing strat). If you already succeeded destroying barracks on your lane, you can change lane and do the same in that lane. Or if enemy is already arrived in your tier 3 tower, you should also participate in defending your base.

Late Game Items:
  • Abyssal Blade
  • Sange and Yasha
  • Butterfly
If it is already mid game, then you should, you want or you don't want, but you should, participate in teamfights. Your team needs your damage, that's way. Also your build should be a carry build, with bkb and orchid to silence enemy. you can also buys Butterfly and Battlefury to increase your DPS potential. You are considered a carry, always focus on single target enemy and if he already killed, cahnge your target to another enemy. After winning a teamfight, push quickly and destroy their base.
