Vanguard on PA?

#1MutantJohnPosted 3/7/2014 5:42:06 PM
So, I was looking through some pro DotA 2 replays (can't remember the name of the site) but they had this awesome feature where you could search by hero and so I was looking at games with the Phantom Assassin in them.

Every game I watched was a loss except for the one where PA got Phase, Vanguard, HotD, SnY and Basher.

Vanguard on Mortred just blows my mind but it seems like it would actually work. Does anyone have thoughts on this? Or should I just go Poor Man's Shield and a Vitality Booster?

i think drums is better on that hero

vanguard damage block isnt really that necessary with her evasion.

My opinion is objective fact. If you disagree, well, you're wrong.

Don't listen to this guy, he has some obsession with anti-vanguard posts.
Why would you even go vitbooster on PA?

As axel said just get drums and you already have evasion.

I like it personally. Mainly because it makes you tankier than drums does and a support usually buys those anyway.

I just meant like, if you wanted the benefits of Vanguard without having a dumb-looking moneysink in your inventory. Normally you don't go Vit on her obv

Vanguard is a great items for some heroes, and good on quite a few as a situational pick.
You look like some tryhard trash player that bashes vanguard just because he saw some less-knowledgeable "better" players do it.
Idk if that's the truth, but it looks that way.

I like the Armlet build better.

Still, i can see the merits of VG on PA, like old school Defiance Weavers... But i wouldn't do it, personally. Save up for a BKB or Armlet instead.
