Troll Warlord is a hero that is quite versatile in his play scenarios in the context of the economy, as he can play fast-paced, but of course, more often than not, Troll acts as a hardcore role, taking most of the farm. Although Troll Warlord will dominate the enemy carry in most of the matchup. There are still a few heroes that can make the game harder for him, such as Slark, Razor, Medusa, and Arc Warden. Cyber-sport.io describes a complete review of this hero, with the help of which you will better know the pros and cons of this char.
Troll Warlord suffers more from heroes, often positioned 2,3,4,5: Winter Wyvern, Necrophos, Shadow Shaman, Pugna, and Outworld Destroyer. Your best allies will be support with a save mechanic so that Troll Warlord can survive the enemy initiation and stay in the fight as much as possible to the end: Dazzle, Oracle, Winter Wyvern, Omniknight, and Io. Also, perfect heroes can keep the enemy in control for a long time Shadow Shaman, Spirit Breaker, Tusk, and Batrider. There are still a few heroes that can make the game harder for him, such as Slark, Razor, Medusa, and Arc Warden.
We start with Quelling Blade, Circlet, Magic Stick, Iron Branch, and Tango if the lane opponents are charging Magic Stick or Quelling Blade, Circlet, Slippers of Agility, 2x Iron Branch, and Tango in any other situation. Troll Warlord is good in the lane against Lycan, Night Stalker, and Legion Commander. We always have the same skill build: on the first level, Whirling Axes, to trade with the enemy and contest a ranged creep (this spell we learn at every available level), on the second - Berserker's Rage to switch to a melee form with additional armor, on the fourth level Fervor to enhance the exchange in the lane (2-1-2-3-2).
Consider a classic purchase. First, we report Wraith Band because he gives excellent stats for attack speed. Next, we buy Phase Boots, which are great for the hero, because the movement speed is critical, but in rare situations when the beginning is not set, you can take Power Treads. After the boots, we start building the Battle Fury, which we collect from Perseverance, which provides HP and MP for laning and other jungle farming.
After Battle Fury, Black King Bar is most often needed for safe team fights. Next, take Sange and Yasha for stats and Skull Basher for additional control. Also, depending on the situation, we take the following items: Skadi against rangers and heroes with a built-in heal, Blink Dagger when you need to quickly close the distance with the desired hero (with a subsequent improvement in Swift Blink), Satanic when you need to kill the enemy and remove negative effects. Aghanim's shard is always taken from the second Roshan.
Troll Warlord, after the laning stage, fully farms his jungle, in parallel shifting to offlane, where he destroys the tower together with the team, if it has not already done so, and remains there to farm the lane and the nearest jungle spots, then farms the ancient creeps. This cycle is repeated every minute until the appearance of level 12, with which Troll Warlord can connect to fights with the second level of the ultimate Battle Trance ability. After a possible fight, Troll Warlord continues to farm until he acquires the Black King Bar, with which you can press Smoke of Deceit and make a successful rotation, after which you can take the first Roshan. According to the game, it is essential to accept fights only if you have an ultimate ability.
At level 10, always get +25 Berserker's Rage Movement Speed because it increases the fight and farming potential. At level 15, we get +90 Whirling Axes Damage against illusions and +5 Fervor Attack Speed in other situations. At level 20, +15% Battle Trance Movement Speed in cases where the enemy has minor physical damage, and always +10 Berserker's Rage Armor. At level 25, we take Battle Trance Strong Dispels when we need to get out of control, in other situations Whirling Axes Pierce Magic Immunity.
