    Aether Lens is good on folks like Leshrac, but it's absolutely core on those spellcasters who buy Blink/Force Staff/both to get into range to cast spells (think Bane, Shadow Shaman, Rubick).

                          I expect some nerf to aether lens in the future,the stats are simply too good for a cheap item

                            invalidvalue

                              Two mistakes made:

                              1. Pudge's hook deals 450 (6.86b) damage instead of 475, which means with it deals 475*1,08=486dmg Aether Lens instead of 513.

                              2. Sand King's initiation range with Burrowstrike + Blink Dagger + Force Staff is (1300+200) + (1200 + 200) + 600 = 3500 units instead of 3250.

                                    I love the conclusion, that final sentence. A nicely written article and after the watered down, nerded 6.84 patch we called 6.85, I'm very happy we got a proper game changing patch with its own identity. Well played Icefrog and Valve. It's a good time to be a dota player once again

                                          Very interesting article

                                            Faerie Fire is hardly a trivial addition. Whilst its potential isn't used every game, it can be the difference between losing a lane and drawing - or indeed, winning it. Preventing one death on your mid-laner has such a huge impact on the game as a whole. It's not a lategame item, but it can save your early game, which (in most games) greatly impacts how the game goes later.

                                            Most scrubs won't be able to take proper advantage of it, but in higher skill brackets, this is an important item. Why else would pros pick it up nearly every game over an Iron Branch when they have pooled tangoes at their disposal?

                                              but for the familiar gamer, it's LoL*

                                                iron talon : Active: Lets you target non-player enemy units to remove 40% of their current HP.
                                                can target on bear lord durid?

                                                    omg, wtf with this balance?
                                                    why did caster hero such as invoker have DPS just like drow ranger? whatdafuq a reason now to pick any of range carries, if we have invoker?)))
                                                    why did nobody nerf such a pubstompers like ursa, instead, they buff it.
                                                    wadafuq is going on?

                                                      Exactly. lol

                                                      Calling Faerie Fire an item with minimal impact is the understatement of the year!
                                                      It creates a new dynamic in the mid lane where you have to account for 75 insta hp. That's half a magic stick for 75g.

                                                        Dont forget the pudge long range dismember with Aether

                                                          Aether Lens could have its own topic, with graphs and case analysis. So many heroes that can possibly build it, yet, so many people building it over Blink Dagger's bigger range. Sure, many other improvements as well as disassembled boots to help buying, but for a lot of heroes, it should be blink first.

                                                            Lets try....
                                                            Axe + aether lens = shit breseker call + magic tank + nice hp regn

                                                              "Iron Talon doesn’t have a comfortable place in the professional meta, at least not yet, "

                                                              I personally question this, if we look at chinese major games recently, it has been a really popular choice for most offlaners to buy iron talon and just dig the jungle if they are getting zoned out.

                                                              BRENNA SPARXXX

                                                                How about omniknight with aether lens?
                                                                8% bonus hp and damage + cast range so sick
                                                                perhaps...

                                                                  unyu_ndasmu stuppiiiiiid!! cast rangee!! not radius of spells (aether lens)

                                                                  ~Hyatt

                                                                    If Iron Talon is able to be disassembled I believe that it would change the game in the sense you can have a reliable jungler and eventually get items like Battlefury or Vlads, rather than dump the item for 250 gold when selling it.

                                                                    Broupi
