Dota 2 - Razor Build Guide

Among the emblematic powers that populate the Underscape, Razor the Lightning Revenant is one of the most feared. With his whip of lightning, he patrols the Narrow Maze, that treacherous webwork of passages by which the souls of the dead are sorted according to their own innate intelligence, cunning and persistence. Drifting above the Maze, Razor looks down on the baffled souls below, and delivers jolts of scalding electricity that both punish and quicken the souls as they decide their own fates, hurrying on toward luminous exits or endlessly dark pits. Razor is the eternal embodiment of a dominating power, abstract and almost clinical in his application of power. Yet he has a lordly air that suggests he takes a sardonic satisfaction in his work.

Razor is a carry hero that can be a good tanker while doing damages to enemies. He should tank all the damages while absorbing enemy's damage and damaging enemy using his spells and attacks. He have 2 good nukes. 1 Area nuke, 1 nuke that auto target the lowest Hp enemy. Although he is an Agility Carry, he should buy tanky items because he needs to be tanky and keep survive while he keep absorbing enemy's damage and he get that damage and use it to kills enemies. Razor, need to be a tank and dealing lots of damages.

This build is Damage Absorber Build
With this build, you will deal lots of painful damage since the early of the game. Just use static link when it's online, and damaging enemy you just absorbed his damage, and harass him until death.

Level 16: Eye of the Storm
Level 17-25: Stats

Why Static Link first? With this skill, you will be owning since the earliest of the game. Absorb their damage, and use the damage you got, to harass them.

Why maxed Plasma Field before Unstable Current? This skill is a nuke. Nuke should be maxed on early-mid game. It will reach it maximum potential when enemy's HP is still low, 500-1000.

Early Game
I recommend you to start spamming Static Link since the earliest of the game. You should use this and keep absorbing the enemy's damage and makes them feel disappointed. After you got the damage, use it to harass your enemies. You should have ultra high damage and deal about 100 damage in very early of the game. That should be so painful for your enemy.
Also use Plasma Field to deal more damage to your enemies. Plasma Field will also can be used to kill some creeps together. Combine Static Link and Plasma Field damage to get firstblood.

Mid Game
In mid game, you should already bought some tanky items, like Vanguard, or Sange and Yasha. With those items, you can bear more damages while absorbing enemy's damage and while damaging them using Eye of the Storm and Plasma Field, and also Right Click damage + additional damage from Static Link. You can be a ganker or a mid-game farmer. Ganker is good, mid-game farmer is good too. You should use Plasma Field and Eye of the Storm, and also Static Link together. Use all you have. After buying your tanky items, your next target is carry's items, you should consider buying Manta Style, or Daedlus, etc.
Dota 2 - Razor Build Guide
Late Game
In late game, you need to be a real DPS-er. But, don't forget to keep tanking and absorbing damage. Your nature is an Agility hero, you should be a carry in the late game. Remember to use Eye of the Storm in every teamfight. Also remember to use Static Link yo enemy's carry, with that, enemy's carry cannot deal high damages and makes him a crap.
You should consider buying some carry's items like Manta Style or Thr Butterfly.
You should focus on enemies one by one until all enemies are killed.
