Dota 2 - Nature's Prophet / Furion Build Guide

BIO
When Verodicia, Goddess of the Woods, had finished filling in the green places, having planted the coiled-up spirit in the seed, having lured the twining waters from deep within the rock, having sworn the sun its full attention to the growing things, she realized that her own time had reached its end, and like one of the leaves whose fate she had imprinted in the seed, she would fall without seeing the fruiting of her dream. It pained her to leave the world bereft, for the sprouts had not yet broken through the soil--and they would be tender and vulnerable to every sort of harm. She found in her seed pouch one last seed that she had missed in the sowing. She spoke a single word into the seed and swallowed it as she fell. Her vast body decomposed throughout the long winter, becoming the humus that would feed the seedlings in the spring. And on the morning of the vernal equinox, before the rest of the forest had begun to wake, that last seed ripened and burst in an instant. From it stepped Tequoia, Nature's Prophet, in full leaf, strong and wise, possessing Verodicia's power to foresee where he would be needed most in defense of the green places--and any who might be fortunate enough to call him an ally.

Why Nature's Call first? For jungling, you need your creeps. You can't jungle without creeps. Creeps will tank the damages, and deal damages to neutrals.

Why you need 1 Level of Sprout in early game? For ganking activities, and for saving your lifes by sprouting yourself and then use Teleport immediately.

Why Nature's call maxed before Sprout? Because this build is focused on pushing towers, and Nature's Call Creeps will really helps for faster pushing.

STRATEGY
Early Game
For early game, you have 3 choices,
1. You can farms in lane,
2. You can farms in jungle,
3. You can farms farm uphill.

If you farms in jungle, you will need your creeps for helps. If you farms in lane, you can last hitting while harassing enemies once in a while.

Or there is an option number 3, you can hits creeps from uphill, and creeps cannot attacks you, this method is rather takes long time to level up. Here is the spot:
Furion Jungling Map, Dota 2 - Furion Build Guide
Note:    Blue dots: Neutral creeps
            Red dots: Place yourself there/ uphill, so the neutrals can't attack you while you attack them

The most important item for your early game is Hand of Midas. With Midas, you can earn golds twice as fast, and also it will faster your levels because you will get 2.5 times exp from the creep you kill using Midas.

On the early game, your team always needs ward. This will gives your team the vision of the fog of war. Very good to anticipate enemy's gank. You may ask your Supprt partner to provide it,

Mid Game
In mid game, your gold will runs faster and you will earn golds quickly. You have 4 main method to earn gold super fast:

1. Using hand of midas, this will also faster your leveling
2. Farms in lane, change lane by using teleport, and get golds from towers too
3. Jungling using your underlings
4. Golds from Wrath of the Nature
5. Or you can get golds from killing heroes. Or if you're evil enough, you can kill steal using Dagon and also Wrath of the Nature.

Dota 2 - Furion Build Guide

Late Game
On the late game, you should already got all items you want. For example:
Schyte of Vyse,
Daedlus, or anything you want.
So you should be ready for dealing some damage to the teamfight.
On the late game your part is to push the empty lane where no enemies are gurding while 4 of your friends doing other activity. And if you feel, the that your teams really needs your presence, you should then teleport to the teamfight and you should use all you have: If you have a Sheepstick use it on their initiator. The most important is, you should right click enemies one by one. Your damages are already high and you can compete with enemy's carry in terms of damage.

And if 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!
