I suppose if you, dear readers, had not read the article's title, you would still not remember such a character as Elder Titan. Long forgotten in regular ranked games, even more, forgotten by Pro ‘ss, but not completely forgotten by the hero's fans. With each arrival of a new meta, some characters are forgotten and become not so popular, while some, on the contrary, their pick rate and win rate are growing, which should not be surprising because this is how Dota 2 works. Today we will analyze whether Elder Titan really dropped out of the game and lost to its direct competitors in every position, why the hero died and has 1.4% of the Dotabuff pick rate, and let's think, wasn't he written off too early?

Today we will analyze whether Elder Titan really dropped out of the game and lost to its direct competitors in every position, why the hero died and has 1.4% of the Dotabuff pick rate, and let's think, wasn't he written off too early?

 

All fans of this character should slightly change their minds about him. Everyone who liked him so much or everyone who liked to watch Cr1t or Ceb on this hero should forget this stage - the hero is not in the meta right now. He loses to all the other representatives of his position - soft support and remains a very situational hero for the draft. But! But there is one thing that, with a good combination of circumstances, a favorable draft both for the hero and against, revives Elder Titan a little and returns him to Dota 2 in a new light - to the offlane position through the fast Aghanim Scepter.

 

As you already understand, the whole idea of ​​such an Elder Titan is substantial physical damage. I mean, all we need is to beat the heroes and catch up with them. We don't act as a support/offlaner to set up fights; we provoke them. Yes, we can extend the control with the help of our skills, namely the standard combination of Echo Stomp and Astral Spirit.

Learn more about how to play this Elder Titan below.

Early game (until 15 min)

Starting purchase: in most cases, the buy you see below will be universal. It includes Tango, Gauntlets of Strength, Circlet, Iron Branch, and Quelling Blade. Further, to make it easier for us to stand in the lane and exchange hits with the enemy carry, it is worth collecting Bracer. After Bracer, we immediately buy Phase Boots - they will increase our damage and add mobility, make it possible to chase enemies. After Boots, we buy in Mask of Madness because it will increase our farming speed and give us the missing lifesteal to leave the lane less often and farm neutral creeps on the side.

 

Laning Stage: In general, Elder Titan is not a hero that will lane aggressively, but you need to ensure you have a stable farm and minimize the number of last hits on the enemy carry. It’s worth staying moderately on the lane, trying to farm, and letting all the aggression come from position 4 – some active hero with a stun or disable; he should do it in such a way that opponents don’t want to approach creeps as much as possible.

 

Mid-game (15-30 min)

Aghanim gives us a new trait of Astral Spirit - 2 seconds of magic immunity for each hero hit, in addition to other buffs. The ideal spawn time for Aghanim Scepter is 18-22 minutes. Therefore, the main gameplay of Elder Titan starts right from this time.

 

Astral Spirit's buffs are too good - they give us too much boost in damage and armor, regardless of our current items and damage, respectively. The ideal conditions for a Titan to get into a fight is the usual setup of stunned opponents just so they can be beaten. Astral Spirit is pressed, it passes through the maximum number of people, depending on the situation, and you can press Echo Stomp or even Ulti, continue the stun, and just hit faces. That's the whole idea of ​​this hero.

 

Late game (30+ min)

We continue to increase our damage with the help of items for this same damage, increased attack speed, and critical damage. It is worth buying Black King Bar if your opponents have intense magic damage and collect everything you see fit, from Crystalis to Divine Rapier. 

 

 

As it turns out, Elder Titan isn't a “dead” hero but needs many favorable aspects to play well. I wish you a good game and victory! BB!

Invisibility = invulnerability - don't cry over spilt milk. A stitch in time saves nine, and, in my opinion, Valve finally noticed this pattern. Remember the joke about Riki and Mirana's ult, under which the first must enter super invisibility? Maybe it's not such a bad idea for 7.32 patch.
