Dota 2 - Abaddon Build Guide

The Font of Avernus is the source of a family's strength, a crack in primal stones from which vapors of prophetic power have issued for generations. Each newborn of the cavernous House Avernus is bathed in the black mist, and by this baptism they are given an innate connection to the mystic energies of the land. They grow up believing themselves fierce protectors of their lineal traditions, the customs of the realm--but what they really are protecting is the Font itself. And the motives of the mist are unclear.

When the infant Abaddon was bathed in the Font, they say something went awry. In the child's eyes there flared a light of comprehension that startled all present and set the sacerdotes to whispering. He was raised with every expectation of following the path all scions of Avernus took--to train in war, that in times of need he might lead the family's army in defense of the ancestral lands. But Abaddon was always one apart. Where others trained with weapons, he bent himself to meditation in the presence of the mist. He drank deep from the vapors that welled from the Font, learning to blend his spirit with the potency that flowed from far beneath the House; he became a creature of the black mist.

There was bitterness within the House Avernus--elders and young alike accusing him of neglecting his responsibilities. But all such accusations stopped when Abaddon rode into battle, and they saw how the powers of the mist had given him mastery over life and death beyond those of any lord the House had ever known.

Abaddon is the most manly hero in Dota. he should become the beast to his team. He should come first in every teamfight and slay enemy in the frontline. He have some nice tanking skill which will really helps him to become a decent tank. He can also become a nuker on early game with his Shield + Mist Coil. And not just that, he can also become a decent carry because he have askill to increase the movemenet speed and also the attack speed.

Why maxed Aphotic Shield first?  This is your main skill for diving and surviving in every situation in the game. You need the defense the most. You are an initiator. The blast damage is also good for farming creeps.

Why maxed Mist Coil before Curse of Avernus?  You need Mist Coil more on early-mid game because you need the damage to nuke down enemies and also you need the heal to save your friend's life. The later the game gets, the less efeective a nuke will be.
Curse of Avernus is a skill to boost the attack speed. On early game, nuke is dominant, and in the late game, attack damage is dominant. So no need to hurry to increase this ability.

Early Game
As a semi-carru, you can get last hits on the early game. Last hits is quiet easy with this hero because your basic damage is high. On this laning phase, always keep an eye on the rune spot where usually the enemy comes from. They may come to you to kill you. Ask your support to always replace the Observer Ward.

Mid Game
Mid game is the ganking time! Everybody will roam around the map and find somebody to kill. It's your time to roam too. Don't forget to buy the Smoke of Deceit to hid from enemy's Observer Ward.

You have some ganking skill here. So if you want to initiate in a gank, what you need to do is:
1. Comunicate with your teammates about who should be ganked, you should focus fire on 1 hero in a gank, because if you don't communicate well you may attack the A person and your teammates attack the B person, and that is a bad gank and can lead to failure on getting the kill.
2. Prepare the items needed in the gank:
a. Use Smoke of Deceit
b. Prepare Dust, Sentry Wards, or Gem if you will gank an invisible hero like Rikimaru, Clinkz, or Nyx Assassin
c. Cast the Aphotic Shield to defend yourself
d. Run towards the squishiest hero
e. Kill him

Late Game
You are considered a carry. So you need to boost your damage the most. By buying nice items, I hope you can win every teamfight here. Your place in every strat is in the front line. You are the bravest hero of Dota. You should tank all damages and make all your friends can easily harass the enemy hero.

And if your team won the teamfight, you have two options:
1. You can get the Aegis for your team's main hero or
2. Your team can push enemy base and destrouy their buildings. Choose wisely!
