Dota 2 - Clinkz Build Guide

At the base of the Bleeding Hills stretches a thousand-league wood-a place called The Hoven, where black pools gather the tarry blood of the uplands, and the king-mage Sutherex sits in benevolent rule. Once a sworn protector of the Hoven lands, Clinkz earned a reputation for his skill with a bow. In the three-hundredth year of the king-mage, the demon Maraxiform rose from sixth hell to lay claim to the forest. In response, the king-mage decreed an unbreakable spell: to any who slew the demon would be granted Life Without End.

Unaware of the spell, Clinkz waded into battle, defending his lands against the demon's fiery onslaught. Clinkz drove Maraxiform back to the gates of sixth-hell itself, where on that fiery threshold the two locked in a mortal conflict. Grievously wounded, the demon let out a blast of hellfire as Clinkz loosed his final arrow. The arrow struck the demon true as hellfire poured out across the land, lighting the black pools and burning Clinkz alive at the instant of the demon's death. Thus, the mage's spell took effect at the very moment of the archer's conflagration, preserving him in this unholy state, leaving him a being of bones and rage, caught in the very act of dying, carrying hell's breath with him on his journey into eternity.

Clinkz is one of the best archer in DotA. He have all what an archer needs, attack speed, damage, and movement speed, so pick this hero and be owning using this archer. Although Clinkz have damage and attack speed, he have the weakness of the majority of ranged hero, he only can attack a single unit at a time, except if you buy Manta. So be focused on one target, and after he dies, you can change to another target.

Clinkz simply lights his arrows from his flaming essence for quite the destructive effect.
Add a damage to every attack. In early game, this skill is a decent skill for harassing. Use this to harass enemy hero once in a while. And in mid-late game, this skill is useful to add your damage versus heroes and towers.

Why take Skeleton Walk on Level 1? You need to save yourself from firstblood attemp from enemies.

Why maxed Searing Arrows first? This is your main damage on early-mid game. You need this to harassing and killing.

Why maxed Strafe before Skeleton Walk? You need strafe for fast killing on early-mid game. Long duration of Strafe needed to destroy towers and in a long teamfight. And level 1 Skeleton Walk is enough for early-mid game.

Early Game
On early game, I recommend you to take Skeleton Walk for level 1, thats for anticipation if enemy wants to kill you in the starting of the game. Once the laning phase start, always harass enemy hero, make them uncomfortable to be on the same lane with you. Use Searing Arrows to harass them. With you on the lane, enemy should be frustrated and cannot last hit properly. If you have a chance, use Skeleton Walk and sneak to the back of your enemy, and then use Strafe and activate Searing Arrows to kill him.

Mid Game
In mid game, try to haunt your enemy by coming from jungle in invisibility mode and the attack enemy from behind, remember to activate Searing Arrows and Strafe. If there are his friend coming and you feel that you will be lost versus two, then use invisibility mode again, and gone.
If there are no enemies helping their friend, and your target run, chase them using Skeleton Walk that helps you with its additional Movement Speed.
Death Pack is very important skill. Always use this when its off cooldown. Try to eat Junlge Ursa, Wildkin, or other big creeps in the jungle. With this, you will always more tanky and have more damage to blows the enemy.
On the teamfight, be focus on one target and after you succesfully kills your taget, change to another target. the key of carry heroes like you is to be focus on one target at a time, remember that and you will be succesfull carry.
Remember to always use Searing Arrows on towers. The damage addition affect towers too.

Late Game
In late game, your part is to deal damage as much as you can. Target squishy hero for easier kill. And dont forget focus. You should already have some nice items here, maybe Daedlus, Orchid, etc. So if your damage is already high, it's your time to shine!
Wait for your initiator to come and tank all the damage. Then, use your mighty attack speed and damage to demolish all the enemies. Focus on the hero one-by one. With that, you should be OWNING and win the game.
