Dota 2 - Tinker Build Guide

Boush the Tinker's diminutive race is known for its intelligence, its cunning, and its prickly relationship with magic. As a matter of pride, they survive by their wits, and use only those powers of nature that may be unlocked through rational methodologies. Even this forbearance has led to a great deal of trouble, as Boush can attest. Once a key investigator of natural law, Boush the Tinker led a vast intellectual investigation into the workings of nature, founding a subterranean laboratory in the rumored, mist-wreathed wastes of the Violet Plateau. While scorning mages for the dangers they visit upon the world, Boush and his Tinker associates haughtily wrenched open a portal to some realm beyond comprehension and ushered in some nightmares of their own. A black mist rose from the cavernous interior of the Violet Plateau, shrouding it in permanent darkness from which sounds of horror perpetually emanate. Boush escaped with only his wits and the contraptions he carried, the sole Tinker to survive the Violet Plateau Incident.

Tinker is one of the best Core-INT hero in the game as he has deadly spells on early-mid game to harass his opponent and get early kills. He also has rearm which means he can refresh the cooldown on all his abilities and items. That makes him can repeatedly cast his spells whenever he wanted. For example: You can hex someone and then after 3 second, you can hex him again. So powerful spell.

Call many goblins to damaging anything in their way. Nice skill to farm fast. And also nice skill to destroy a push wave. The damage is high so if there are enemy heroes in AoE, it will be painful for them. This skill is also good for Ancient stacking. Because in Dota2 you can hurt Ancients with this skill.

You also can use clickable items like Schyte of Vyse many times. Schyte of Vyse will gives permanent hex because you can refresh its cooldown in seconds and use it again for the same target.

Dota 2 - Tinker Build Guide

Early Game
Tinker is a hero who usually take mid lane. This is because, tinker needs level, and if tinker becomes the highest level in the game, tinker can easily gank enemy team and make advantages for the team. Tinker also usually buy bottle. This item is very important for Tinker for ganking and for survivability on the lane. Bottle also make you can regenenerate HP and mana faster in your fountain.

Mid Game
One item you should chase first is Boots of Travel. This is because of your Ultimate (Rearm), you can use this boots anytime, which means, that you can use this to:
1. Always fulfill your health and mana in the fountain whenever you have low health and mana.
2. Farms in any lane whenever  you want. Note that before you teleport to the lane you want, always check the minimap, if everyone is missing, don't teleport there because it's too way dangerous. only farm if the condition is 100% safe
3. Gank everyone, anytime, or everywhere.

Boots of Travel, Dota 2 - Tinker Build Guide

You can harass opponent using Skill 2 (Missile) + Skill 3 (March) and rearm and then cast again Skill 2 (Missile) and Skill 3 (March) and then repeat again and again.

This will be very powerful to use in counterpushing to make your opponent afraid and not to go deeper into your base.

Late Game

Use all your skill as fast as you can, (march, missile, laser and rearm), the faster the better. If you have Schyte of Vyse it will be awesome, because you will have "permanent hex" cause you have rearm. Use it as fast as possible, train your tinker.

If your mana or hp is low always tp back to your base immediately. Use bottle for faster regen, and rearm as fast as you can. and if there is still teamfight, TP again and immediately cast all of your spell again and rearm again. Tinker is all about speed and aggressivity , the faster your hand, the stronger your tinker is.

After your team won the teamfight, you have two options:
1. You can get the Aegis for your team's main hero or
2. Your team can push enemy base and destrouy their buildings. Choose wisely!

1. Bottle
Cost: 600
Use: Regenerate - Restores HP and Mana over time. Effect is lost if unit is attacked. Empty Bottle refills near town fountain. You can also store runes in the bottle, to save for later use. After 2 minutes, stored Runes will be activated. HEALTH RESTORED: 135
Why Bottle? You need bottle to get runes for a better ganking chance. And bottle will makes your time regenerating HP and mana in fountain becomes less.
