Atropos quick guide and Inventories:
If you're going mid, you can rip the farming of mid lane hero And if you're going any side lane, you can do it to two heroes XD
[Atropos is a hero which can act as Rambo from start. Hone your skills to get a better grip of this elemental hero]
The hero's cast animation for hitting creeps or heroes is perfectly timed and can be skillfully mastered for last hits / denies.
Complete Mana boots so that you can Use sap frequently or you can keep a Bottle[600 gold] with you and utilize all runes.
Further inventories - Necronomicon , Dagger / Forcestaff , Sceptre , Scythe , Shivas [Well items depend as per game and opp. heroes] So, Just focus on supporting, harassing and Ganking .
Few tips on using the Hero :
1. Be Ultra Offensive [Note: not if you haven't mastered it yet]
2. You can use Nightmare to Give damage to opp. hero in start games.
3. Nightmare can come handy when it comes to running away or giving time for allies to group up for a kill.
4. If you're low on mana, Do Fiend's Grip first . This helps in recovering mana so that you can sap and get the kill.
5. Nightmare works in Insane way if you can time it. If used on self or allies, nightmare state stops enemy from hitting you and if they do, they go to nightmare.
6. Nightmare can be used to dodge spell damages and other high damage powers by using Timed Sleep. [Need Absolute perfection]
7. Always enfeeble carry opp. heroes in fights from start and put it on again after CD.
8. Don't loose Fiend's grip to sap and KS [But do it, if you're alone or sure of what you're doing]
-- When you sleep someone or self, the hero being nightmared goes into state of invulnerabilty for the very instant moment the Nightmare has been put on him. This can be an ultimate Method to dodge and help allies from Enemies.
