Dota 2 - Chaos Knight Build Guide

The veteran of countless battles on a thousand worlds, Chaos Knight hails from a far upstream plane where the fundamental laws of the universe have found sentient expression. Of all the ancient Fundamentals, he is the oldest and most tireless-endlessly searching out a being he knows only as "The Light." Long ago the Light ventured out from the progenitor realm, in defiance of the first covenant. Now Chaos Knight shifts from plane to plane, always on the hunt to extinguish the Light wherever he finds it. A thousand times he has snuffed out the source, and always he slides into another plane to continue his search anew.

Upon his steed Armageddon he rides, wading into battle with maniacal frenzy, drawing strength from the disorder of the universe. A physical manifestation of chaos itself, in times of need he calls upon other versions of himself from other planes, and together these dark horsemen ride into battle, as unstoppable as any force of nature. Only when the last Light of the world is scoured from existence will the search be ended. Where rides the Chaos Knight, death soon follows.

Why maxed Chaos Bolt first?  This is your main nuke, you will need this for ganking and killing or early mid game.

Why take 1 level of Chaos Strike for early game, it will help you to deal more damage to creeps or to early-mid ganks.

Why maxed Reality Rift before Chaos Strike? The rule of DotA: Nukes for early game, physical damage for late game.  Reality Rift is a nuke that will  deal more damage on early-mid game. And the most importantly, you need the low coldown of Reality Rift to be able to spam this skill. And Chaos Strike is for physical attacks that will be the main source of damages for mid-late game.

Early Game
On early game, if you want to steal the Firstblood! increase Chaos Bolt and use the stun to lock your enemy so your team can beat him and get the FB.

On early game, your focus is on last hitting. 1 level of Chaos Strike and a Quelling Blade will helps you in this case. Farm as many creeps as you can and save the gold to buy nice items for the late game. Always check if your enemy is on a bad position, like if he is to late to go back and your creeps will surround him if he is stunned. Then: stun him!, and use Reality Rift and then kill him!

Mid Game
Mid game is the ganking time, except if you are a full farmer for the late game.
Then if you choose to ganks, Find the weak opponent in other lane, and come from the jungle behind your target. Your strategy is to stun him and use Reality Rift on him, and then you can use Phantasm to increase your damage output. Remember that more number will defeat the less number. So if you gank someone, ask your friends to gank together and make it sure that your target will be killed with your combo.
