Dota 2 - Undying Build Guide

How long has it been since he lost his name?

The torn ruin of his mind no longer knows. Dimly he recalls armor and banners and grim-faced kin riding at his side. He remembers a battle: pain and fear as pale hands ripped him from his saddle. He remembers terror as they threw him into the yawning pit of the Dead God alongside his brothers, to hear the Dirge and be consumed into nothingness. In the darkness below, time left them. Thought left them. Sanity left them. Hunger, however, did not. They turned on each other with split fingernails and shattered teeth. Then it came: distant at first, a fragile note at the edge of perception, joined by another, then another, inescapable and unending. The chorus grew into a living wall of sound pulsing in his mind until no other thought survived. With the Dirge consuming him, he opened his arms to the Dead God and welcomed his obliteration. Yet destruction was not what he'd been chosen for. The Dead God demanded war. In the belly of the great nothing, he was granted a new purpose: to spread the Dirge across the land, to rally the sleepless dead against the living. He was to become the Undying, the herald of the Dead God, to rise and fall and rise again whenever his body failed him. To trudge on through death unending, that the Dirge might never end.

Undying is a Zombie hero that considered a tanker-pusher-nuker-slower. He can raise many small zombies that can slow down enemies and dealing some damages. With his zombies, he can push quickly and destroy towers quickly. He is also a decent nuker+healer with his skills SoulRip, FleshGolem and Decay. He also can transform into a big golem that slow down enemy and do amplify damages to enemy around him. If you are a fan of Zombie Movies, Zombie Apocalypes, Resident Evil etc., this is the right hero for you. Raise the dead and call all the corpse!
Decent attack animation for last hitting.Very low agility.
Nobody can beat him in the early gameLoses his power late game.
Good PusheMust always have teammates nearby to be efficient.
Not very item dependent but items benefit him a lot .Hard to farm during early game.
Can support if needed.Ugly

Why maxed Soulrip before Decay? Soulrip also helps in pushing strat because it will deal damage to creeps and helps you destroy creeps wave quickly. And also SoulRip will helps your team survive with it's heal.

Early game
In the early game your part for the team depends on you and your team. Whether you want to be an annoying nuker, or a fast pusher. You have the ability to do both of those part for your team. If you want to be a nuker. you should maxing Decay and Soul Rip first, those 2 skils are your main nukes for early-mid game. Spam those 2 skills for enemy heroes and makes them uncomfortable in lane. Makes their HP become low or even kill them and get firstblood or something.

And if you want to be a pusher, you should maxed your Tombstone that can be use to block enemy creeps. Undying is one of the best creep blocker, just like Axe. With his Tombstone, enemy creeps can't go forward to defend their tower. And that makes your creeps and your team can destroy towers so fast. A trilane with Undying will guarantee 1 or 2 towers in the earliest of the game.

Although you are a Strength type hero, you should always have mana for your skills. You need to buy +mana items like Arcane Boots for your foots.

Mid Game
In mid game you should already have Flesh Golem ability. And you can use that to fight against enemies. While there are your zombies fighting with you, you will become more powerful. And also don't forget to spam decay and soul rip. Soul Rip that target foe will do damage and Soul Rip that target ally will heal.
Because you have a high pushing power, you can keep focusing on pushing and destrowing tower and another tower. You can also buy mekansm that will heal nearby allies, and also your zombies. Or, if you want to have more pushing power, you need to buy Necro Book.

Zombie, Dota 2 - Undying Build Guide

Late Game
Because your skills are already not painful in late game, your part here is to tank the damage and rely on your Flesh Golem form to amplify damages. And you shoukd keep slowing opponents using your Zombies and your FleshGolem Aura. You also need your supportive items like Mekans to heal allies, Pipe to tank magical damage, or Necro Book to help team deal damages in teamfights. You can also buy a Blade Mail to reflect enemy's damage.
Using this hero, you should be brave and keep moving forward destroying enemy heroes with your scary face and big body.
