Dota 2 - Viper Build Guide

The malevolent familiar of a sadistic wizard who captured and hoped to tame him, Viper was curiously glad to have been sprung from the sealed and unchanging subterranean Nether Reaches where his race had lived for millions of years, after tectonic slippage had sealed off the Netherdrakes in luminous caverns. Viper spent some time appearing to submit to the wizard's enchainments, hoping to learn what he could of the dark magics the mage practiced. But he soon realized that few spells were as deadly as the toxins that were his birthright. Exuding an acid that swiftly ate away the bars of his cage, the Netherdrake slipped free of his confines, spit poison in the old spellcaster's eyes, and soared out to let the world know that it had a new master.

Viper is one of the strongest laner in DotA. He can solo lane easily while pleasantly harassing his opponent. He mainly uses poison to attack enemies. His poison have a decent range for harassing enemies. His poison also slows and dealing lots of damage to his target. He is a decent carry, he can carry the team in late game using a painful poison to attacks all the enemies.

Why take Poison Attack for level 1? If you want to steal firstblood, the this is your skill. Harass enemy and get firstblood. Of course with the help of your friend.

Why maxed Poison Attack first? This is your main harassing skill for early game, you need this skill to harass enemy. With this skill you can harass opponent easily and make them uncomfortable in lane.

Why maxed Nethertoxin  before Corrosive Skin ? You need this skill for your last hits. Deal more damage to an agony creeps. Really helps for last hitting. And this skill also help you get kills from killing heroes.
Why take Corrosive Skin for level 1? Stay safe from firstblood by using this skill to protect yourself.

Why maxed Corrosive Skin first? Your goal here is to stay strong for whatever attempt your enemy have to kill you. Maxing Corrosive will grant you a metal body

Should we prefer Poison Attack or Nethertoxin? You can increase those skills simultaneously so you get the same max benefits from them.

Early game
On early game, harass your oponent using Poison Attack.They will feel so much pain and forced to retreat and can’t last hits properly. Use this chance to farming convenietly. You will be easy for farming because you have Nethertoxin that makes you easier to get last hits, this skill will increase damage to creeps in low HP to makes you get more last hits. If enemy comes near to last hit, harass again using Poison Attack, this way you will make your enemy can’t farm on early game. You are one of the best harasser, remember that!

Mid Game
On mid game, you should already have your ultimate. It’s time to kills. Use your ultimate first, and then, harass your enemy using your poison. He can’t run because of slow movement speed from your poison, and can’t fight because the Hp is already maybe in 60-70%, so he will be likelly to death.
Kill as many enemy as possible to earn lots of golds. You need golds because you are the carry of your team that must carry your team to victory.

The importance of being tanky
If the enemy can't kill you because you are so tanky, the enemy will be frustrated so you can easily dominate them with your massive poison attack. My advice is: Buy mekansm, and then not just you can heal yourself but it will gives your teams lots of survivability.
Always remember to activare PoisonAttack once teamftght starts. And then remember to right click the exact target. That's the only way you can win. If you misclick a creep or even being panic and can't click enemy hero, that's mean you're bad. Don' ever be panic and click the correct enemy hero ( preferrably the less Hp).
On late game, your part is carrying the team. Use your high damage to kill as many enemy as you can. I assume you already have some good items here, like Manta, Butterfly etc. with that items, you will be the real carry for the team. The key to be successful carry is to: focus on one target until he dies. If one already died, change to the next target. Corrosive Skin skill also takes part here, it will increase your defense and makes you more survivable.
