Dota 2 - Lich Build Guide

Dota 2 - Lich Build Guide
BIO
In life, the frost-mage Ethreain (not yet a Lich) had used the threat of destructive ice to enslave entire kingdoms. His subjects, aided by a few desperate magicians, eventually grew bold enough to ambush him. Armed with enough charmed rope to bind him forever, they tied the frost mage to adamant weights and dropped him in a pool known chiefly for being bottomless. It wasn't. He only fell for a year or so before an outcrop snagged him. There he rested, dead but undecaying, until the geomancer Anhil thought to verify the legend of the supposedly bottomless Black Pool. Anhil's plumbline snarled with the ropes that bound the drowned magician, and up he hauled an unexpected prize. Thinking that by rendering the dead undead, he could question the Lich about the properties of the pool, he removed the bindings and commenced a simple rite of resurrection. Even the descendants of Ethreain's enemies were long forgotten by time, so there were none to warn Anhil against imprudence. But he learned the error of his judgment almost immediately, as Lich threw off the shackles and consumed him.

Level 17-25: Stats

Take Sacrifice for level 1 for early denying. This will hamper your enemy's gold and exp by a bit.
Take Frost Blast for level 1 if you & your friends want to get firstblood before the game start.
Take Frost armor for level 1 if you want to Roshing before the game start. Use frost armor on Sylla's bear.

Why maxed Frost Blast first? This is your main nuke. Max this early for maximum damage on early game.

Why maxed Sacrifice before Ice Armor? Sacrifice is needed for early-mid game to replenish mana to spam your nukes. And ice armor is more important in late game where armor determine the course of the teamfight.

STRATEGY
Early Game
In early game you have 3 choices.
1. You increase your denying skill Sacrifice, and use this to reduce your opponents chance to get golds and exp.
2. You increase Frost Blast first, this is the mainstream way, you will be a powerful nuker that enemy is feared of.
3. Increased Ice Armor. This method is good for early Roshan where the tanker, usually Bear of Syllabear, will become more tanky because of the Ice Armor. Also, Roshan's attack will be slowed by 20%. Very good for early Roshing.
Denying is your priority on early game, you are a support type. Except if you're on mid and solo. In mid, you should do last hitting, you have a long range attack, should be easy for you in laning phase, you can harass the enemy,  harass them and steal the creeps. You are a decent solomid hero, you have a slower nuke, and a good denying skill.
Use Frost Blast on your enemy to harass them, if your mana is running low, immediately use Sacrifice and get more mana.

Mid Game
In mid game, your part is to use Chain Frost on every big teamfight. You should also keep spamming your main nuke, Frost Blast to kock down the enemies. remember that Frost Blast is also a decent slowing skill. With this skill you can chase enemy and make him cannot escape from you and your friends.
Denying become less important on mid-late game, the most important is to keep killing enemy heroes and destroy their towers after winning  a teamfight.
Dota 2 - Lich Build Guide
Late Game
In late game, keep using Chain Frost on each temfight. Chain Frost damage will damaging your foe's until they are agony or death. Chain Frost is a very powerful nuke. A bouncing ball that will knock down all the enemies.
