Dota 2 - Troll Warlord Build Guide

It's an easy thing to offend a troll. A prickly and contentious race, trolls thrive on argument and strife, missing no excuse to raise their voices in dispute. Males grow to maturity in subterranean chambers beneath their matriarch's domicile, feeding and amusing themselves while contributing nothing. Often they stay for years beyond the age of maturity, while the matriarch provides them with sustenance. When young trolls are finally pushed from their sub-chamber, they gather with others of their kind, forming roving gangs of malcontents who complain loudly about all manner of vexation.

As much as trolls love to argue, imagine how rare it is for a troll to be driven from his own kind for being too difficult to get along with. Such was Jah'rakal's fate, a monger troll from deep in the Hoven. So deluded was he, so bitter and abrasive, that even other trolls found his company intolerable. After one particularly vitriolic outburst in which he claimed the lion's share of loot from their latest raid, his cohorts finally snapped. They turned on him, beat him with clubs, and drove him from the encampment. Enraged at his banishment, he returned the next day, armed with steel, and slew them all, one by one. He then swore a blood oath: he would ever after be a fighting force unto himself. Now he roams the world as the Troll Warlord, bitter and angry, the Imperial high commander of an army of one.

Troll is a carry hero that can change his attack range. He can choose to become a melee carry or to become a ranged carry. Melee means more damage and also can have the stunning ability and ranged means he can deal damage from  a long range and can be use for chasing a running target if a melee attack can't catch up.

A nice skill that makes you get more attack speed on each attack by not changing your target. Needed to make you a decent carry on the late game. The more HP the enemy have, the more you will get the benefit from this ability. So Roshing and also fighting enemy carry on the late game will be easier because of this skill.

Why take Berserker's Rage? With the increased damage in melee-mode, it will increase your chance for getting the last hits. Also can save you from enemy's attempt to get firstblood because in melee mode you gain bonus movement speed to run away and you also get more Hp  to increase your survivability.

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

Why maxed Berserker's Rage before Fervor? Attack Speed bonus from Fervor is a good late game booster. And you not need it to increase it early. You may need the Berserker's Rage more because it gives more stun duration to help you chase your target.

Early Game
Use Berserker's Rage for easier last hits. It will increase your damage. Also use the Whirling Axe for multiple last hits. Beware of high damage nukes, you are one of the squishiest hero on the map. Also always keep an eye on your ward so you can see any movement from the enemy that may harm yourself.  You need farm the most, so be focus in last hitting because you are the carry of your team.

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 Whirling Axe
d. Use your ultimate
e. Brutally attack their support
d. Chase the running enemy using Whirling Axe and you may use the Ranged mode if the enemy just need 1 more hit and you cannot catch up with him.

Keep farming and get as many gold as you can. As a carry, you need to boost 3 things;
1. Damage
2. Attack Speed
3. Survivability

Also always keep an eye on enemys movement and prepare yourself from any attempt to gank you.

Late Game
Late game is your time to shine. You should already reach high level here. It will gives you so much advantage from the additional HP and attack. And also I assume that you should already finished your core items. That means you are ready to crush enemy in the teamfight.
Your part here is:
1. Use Bkb
2. Use Whirling Axes
3. Use your ultimate
4. Kill all enemy

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!
