Dota 2 - Elder Titan Build Guide

Well may you ask, "How did this world take its form?" Why of all the worlds in creation, has this one its strange properties, its diverse and motley collection of creatures, cultures and lore? "The answer," One whispers, "lies with the Titans."

These original progenitors were there near the Beginning--if not actual witnesses to the creation, then born with it still echoing in their ears. Stamped with the earliest energies of the universe, they wished nothing more than to continue as creators themselves. Thus they bent to the task of shaping matter to their will: hammering and heating, bending and blasting. And when matter proved less challenging than they liked, they turned their tools upon themselves, reshaping their minds and reforging their spirits until they had become beings of great endurance. Reality itself became the ultimate object of their smithing. Yet, along the way, they sometimes erred. In cases of great ambition, mistakes are unavoidable.

The one we know as the Elder Titan was a great innovator, one who studied at the forge of creation. In honing his skills, he shattered something that could never be repaired, only thrown aside. He fell into his own broken world, a shattered soul himself. There he dwelt among the jagged shards and fissured planes, along with other lost fragments that had sifted down through the cracks in the early universe. And this is why the world we know resembles an isle of castaways, survivors of a wreck now long forgotten. Forgotten, that is, by all but the One who blames himself. He spends his time forever seeking a way to accomplish the repairs, that he might rejoin the parts of his broken soul, that we and the world alike might all be mended. This is the One we know as Elder Titan.

Elder Titan is considered one of the best initiator in DotA. He have 2 initiating skill that will helps his team to initiate well in a teamfight. He also have a skill to reduce enemy's armor and resistance which will greatly increase his allies damage. He can also acquire a nice amount of damage from his Astral skill.

Why maxed Astral Spirit first?  This is your main nuke, you will need this for ganking, farming, and killing on early mid game.

Why maxed Echo Stomp before Natural Order?  On early-mid game, the enemy's armor and resitance are still considerably low. Better to increase the Echo Stomp to increase it's Sleep duration for initiating a teamfight.

Early Game
On early game, you should get lasthits and denies if your carry isn't in the same line as you. You may need to buy some items that will benefit the team. Last hits is quiet easy for you because you have a high base damage. And also you have the Astral Spirits to helps you get last hits by it's magical damage and also it eventually will gives you bonus attack damage that helps you get more last hits.
If you don't see any wards that will detect the enemy, you should buy it. Ward is a must item for the team. It gives a vision that preevents your teammates from enemys attempt on ganking.

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. Use the Astral Spirit
d. Use the Echo Stomp
e. Use your ultimate

Late Game
On late game. The teamfight will be very intense. Beware! if your team lose a single teamfight it may cost you the game.
You should already reached high level here so you have an all high level skill and also an already high sats, HP and damage. And so does ebverybody in the map. And also with the high level, that means a long respawn time. That means that every move is becoming more important and decisive. So keep focus and also don;'t panic at every sitaution. Always think clearly and use all you have.

Here you should make a wise decision to choose btween 2 options:
1. To save money for buyback
2. To buy your next item
How to choose between those two? you may see how important is your next item. You can see it by: If you don't buy that item immediately, your team's can't compete with the enemy's power so buy it immediately, but if the item is not that important, you should save for buyback.

Your role in the teamfight is an initiator. What you need to do is:
1. Casting Astral Spirit and the Echo Stomp to make emnemy become sleep
2. Cast your ultimate
3. Use any clickable item in your pocket, you may have Mekansm or Necronomicon.

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!
