Dota 2 - Invoker Build Guide

Dota 2 - Invoker Build Guide
BIO
In its earliest, and some would say most potent form, magic was primarily the art of memory. It required no technology, no wands or appurtenances other than the mind of the magician. All the trappings of ritual were merely mnemonic devices, meant to allow the practitioner to recall in rich detail the specific mental formulae that unlocked a spell's power. The greatest mages in those days were the ones blessed with the greatest memories, and yet so complex were the invocations that all wizards were forced to specialize. The most devoted might hope in a lifetime to have adequate recollection of three spells--four at most. Ordinary wizards were content to know two, and it was not uncommon for a village mage to know only one--with even that requiring him to consult grimoires as an aid against forgetfulness on the rare occasions when he might be called to use it. But among these early practitioners there was one exception, a genius of vast intellect and prodigious memory who came to be known as the Invoker. In his youth, the precocious wizard mastered not four, not five, not even seven incantations: He could command no fewer than ten spells, and cast them instantly. Many more he learned but found useless, and would practice once then purge from his mind forever, to make room for more practical invocations. One such spell was the Sempiternal Cantrap--a longevity spell of such power that those who cast it in the world's first days are among us still (unless they have been crushed to atoms). Most of these quasi-immortals live quietly, afraid to admit their secret: But Invoker is not one to keep his gifts hidden. He is ancient, learned beyond all others, and his mind somehow still has space to contain an immense sense of his own worth...as well as the Invocations with which he amuses himself through the long slow twilight of the world's dying days.

STRATEGY
Early Game
Invoker usually choose the mid lane. It is because of the need for fast leveling because if Invoker can become the higher level than the opponent, he can easily kill the opponent. On early game beware of enemy's gank. Your team needs ward. Ask your support to provide you the ward.

Mid Game
Mid game is the ganking time! Everybody will roam around the map and find somebody to kill. It's your time to roam too. Don't forget to buy the Smoke of Deceit to hid from enemy's Observer Ward.

You have some ganking skill here. So if you want to initiate in a gank, what you need to do is:
1. Comunicate with your teammates about who should be ganked, you should focus fire on 1 hero in a gank, because if you don't communicate well you may attack the A person and your teammates attack the B person, and that is a bad gank and can lead to failure on getting the kill.
2. Prepare the items needed in the gank:
a. Use Smoke of Deceit
b. Prepare Dust, Sentry Wards, or Gem if you will gank an invisible hero like Rikimaru, Clinkz, or Nyx Assassin
3. Summon the Forged Spirit

4. You may start the gank using
a. EMP + Tornado
b. Defeaning Blast + Chaos Meteor

5. You can use the coldsnap to chase + harass the running away enemy.

6. Assassinate the red-hp ed opponent with Sunstrike

Dota 2 - Invoker Build Guide
Late Game:
On late game. The teamfight will be very intense. Beware! if your team lose a single teamfight it may cost you the game.
You should already reached high level here so you have an all high level skill and also an already high sats, HP and damage. And so does ebverybody in the map. And also with the high level, that means a long respawn time. That means that every move is becoming more important and decisive. So keep focus and also don;'t panic at every sitaution. Always think clearly and use all you have.

Here you should make a wise decision to choose btween 2 options:
1. To save money for buyback
2. To buy your next item
How to choose between those two? you may see how important is your next item. You can see it by: If you don't buy that item immediately, your team's can't compete with the enemy's power so buy it immediately, but if the item is not that important, you should save for buyback

On late game, initiation is becoming the most important, you need Force Staff + Hex to do it. and after that you can start your combo

Your combo in a teamfight:
Combo1. Call forge spirit, and ready to attack opponent,
2. Use EMP+Tornado, your opponent will have their mana drained,
3. and then after the enemy landed from the Tornado  use Defeaning Blast,
4. and then use Chaos Meteor.
5. And then go near your opponent and cast ice Wall.
6. After that, use Alacrity and coldsnap, a
7. nd then finish someone who is low hp with sunstrike
The main idea of invoker is to maxing you hand speed, with a full-speed hand, you can use Invoker in it's maximum potential.

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!
