Dota 2 - Kunkka Build Guide

Dota 2 - Kunkka Build Guide
BIO
As The Admiral of the mighty Claddish Navy, Kunkka was charged with protecting the isles of his homeland when the demons of the Cataract made a concerted grab at the lands of men. After years of small sorties, and increasingly bold and devastating attacks, the demon fleet flung all its carnivorous ships at the Trembling Isle. Desperate, the Suicide-Mages of Cladd committed their ultimate rite, summoning a host of ancestral spirits to protect the fleet. Against the demons, this was just barely enough to turn the tide. As Kunkka watched the demons take his ships down one by one, he had the satisfaction of wearing away their fleet with his ancestral magic. But at the battle's peak, something in the clash of demons, men and atavistic spirits must have stirred a fourth power that had been slumbering in the depths. The waves rose up in towering spouts around the few remaining ships, and Maelrawn the Tentacular appeared amid the fray. His tendrils wove among the ships, drawing demon and human craft together, churning the water and wind into a raging chaos. What happened in the crucible of that storm, none may truly say. The Cataract roars off into the void, deserted by its former denizens. Kunkka is now The Admiral of but one ship, a ghostly rig which endlessly replays the final seconds of its destruction. Whether he died in that crash is anyone's guess. Not even Tidehunter, who summoned Maelrawn, knows for sure.

Note:  If you want to get firstblood at Lv.1 you can take X Mark the spot or Torrent on Lv.1.

Or if you afraid of getting firstblood at Lv.1, you can use those ability to escape from the enemy.

Why Tidebringer should be maxed first? This ability is so good on early game to make you easier in lasthitting the creeps and also harassing your enemy with it's splashed damage.

Why maxed Torrent before X Mark the spot? Torrent will be more painful in early game where enemy's Hp is relatively low. And 1 level of X Mark the Spot is enough for early game to can chase your target.

STRATEGY
Early Game
Your job in early game is to lasthit every creeps in your lane. Tidebringer will really helps you in this stage. Tidebringer will also gives your opponent some damage because of it's cleave, just hits the front creeps, and your enemy behind that creeps will feel the damage. You can also harass enemies by using Torrents, it's fun to watch your enemy bouncing to the air.

Always beware of enemy's gank. You must watch the river area. The wards may helps you on this. If there is an enemy incoming, you should retreat to your tower for safety.

Mid Game
Kunkka is capable in both ganking and farming. Your team should decide what you will become,

1. A full  time farmer
This strategy ensures you having good items on late game. Good items means a good carrying power. This means you will become very strong on the late game to make your team win the teamfight.

2. A ganker who is active in ganking activities.
This also a nice strat too becausea a successful gank campaign on the mid game, will greatly destroy the enemy's power.

If you gank, always remember to use X mark the spot, it will make your opponent to come back in the X mark. You can place your Torrent in the X mark to make sure your Torrent hits your target.

Remember to summon your Ghostship if necessary.

Ghostship is an important ability to surprise gank the enemy, just come from jungle and use Ghostship to your enemy. It will surprise them. And then destroy your enemy together with your friends. You have Torrent to nuke, X mark to chase, and you also have high right click damage from Tidebringer.
