Dota 2 - Phantom Lancer Build Guide

BIO
The remote village of Pole had no knowledge of the wars raging in the heart of the kingdom. For them, the quiet of spear fishing, and a family meal were all that a full life required. Yet war came for them nonetheless. Joining the able-bodied conscripts as they filed passed their homes, the humble lancer Azwraith vowed to bring peace to his kingdom, and in so doing, his people. Placed with his kin in the vanguard of the final assault against the Dread Magus Vorn, the cost to his fellows was absolute. As the charging force battled toward the fortress, Azwraith alone among his kind remained standing, and he alone was able to infiltrate the keep. Focused and infuriated by the slaughter of his brothers, Azwraith bested each of the wizard's deadly traps and conjured guardians. Soon the simple fisherman arrived at Vorn's tower sanctum. The pair dueled through the night, pike to staff, as chaos raged below, and with a deafening cry Azwraith pierced his enemy. But the wizard did not simply expire; he exploded into uncountable shards of light, penetrating his killer with power. As the dust settled and the smoke of combat began to clear, Azwraith found himself standing among a throng of his kin. Each seemed to be dressed as he was, each seemed armed as he was, and he could sense that each thought as he did. Aware that his allies were approaching, he willed these phantoms to hide themselves, and one by one they began to vanish into nothingness. As the soldiers came upon the sanctum, they found the warrior that had bested the wizard. When they approached their champion, the lancer vanished. The pikeman who had stood before them was no more than another phantom.

Why maxed Spirit Lance first? Spirit Lance is your main nuke. You need this for chasing enemies, harass enemies, and for teamfights. You should maxed nukes in early game because enemy's HP is still relatively low.

Why take 2 Dopplewalk in early game? This will reduce mancost and cooldown for Doppelwalk that makes this skill usable in dangerous situation..

Why not taking Phantom Edge on early game? On early game, your attack speed is low, and not recommended to increase this because you should have'nt increase your Juxtapose because your skill point should be used for the more important Spirit Lance, your main nuke, and Doppelwalk for escaping if you are in danger.
