Dota 2 - Tiny Build Guide

Coming to life as a chunk of stone, Tiny's origins are a mystery on which he continually speculates. He is a Stone Giant now, but what did he used to be? A splinter broken from a Golem's heel? A shard swept from a gargoyle-sculptor's workshop? A fragment of the Oracular Visage of Garthos? A deep curiosity drives him,and he travels the world tirelessly seeking his origins, his parentage, his people. As he roams, he gathers weight and size; the forces that weather lesser rocks, instead cause Tiny to grow and ever grow.

Tiny is a deathly nuker on early game. And can be a deathly attacker on the late game. He have the most damaging combo on early game: The Avalanche-Toss. This combo makes enemy receives the Avalance damage twice as the enemy is going up and down. Not just that: he is also a fierceful pusher wiht his Aghanim Scepter. he have a splashed attack to destroy the creeps wave, and also he is the faster tower destroyer in Dota. The damage he can deal to building is so damn high.
