So I made this while playing my pubs.
I noticed people struggling in lane with AM buying the ring and then playing defensive and trying to get to that BF to farm.
I think the New Meta is here. And the games are very active and you can get away with more as an AM.
In lane, AM is very strong in my opinion as he has enough stats to fight anyone especially at Level 2 when he peeks a lot having Mana Burn + Blink. That’s why you saw there is an orb of corossion there.
The Orb is super important as it gives AM everything he needs in the lane to win it HP/ SLOW/ -ARMOR … and the minus armor is very important as the other ones too as Mana Burn is a Physical Damage.
After you finished Orb of Corrosion you should buy Boots of Speed/ Magic Wand/ Tango + Clarity for constant regen.
It is very important to get Manta Style so you can remove silences or disables.
Now that you have Manta Style completed you need to finish Power Treads and go into the Aghanim’s Scepter.
Aghanim’s Scepter combined with the Orb of Corossion stats-wise is a smaller Eye of Skadi only that you have an illusion on a 20s cd.
** About the Skill Build – you can have 2 4 1 2 and the rest can be Attribute Bonus, but one important thing is to have the Mana Break Lvl. 4 by the time you finish Aghs.
You finished Aghs, you have 3 Illusions with Max Mana Break … now you would think I would go for Abyssal Blade.. but no, we go for the Scythe of Vise as we can cast it from far away and cast our Aghs Illusion on the enemy target.
Advantages of Scythe of Vise :
– Cast from a distance
– Infinite Mana, you have mana issues with AM, especially after you buy shard and especially when you get another spell (from Aghs)
– More lockdown than Abyssal
– More stats than Abyssal
– It is 650g Cheaper than Abyssal
Disadvantages of Scythe :
-Does not pierce BKB/ Magic Immunity
As the game progresses you need more IAS so we go for Moonshard. After the Moonshard I like to personally go for Etheral Blade and combine it with my Ultimate.
