7.07b (Offlane) Standard Bristleback Build
By Torte de Lini
Bristleback is a tanky mid to late-game semicarry/ganker that can take a lot of damage from enemy spells and attacks so long as his back is turned towards his enemies. With Bristleback's ultimate, you can dish out a lot of damage after reaching the max amount of stacks through the use of your spells with a low cooldown. All damages from nukes to Damage over Time spells (DoTs) are reduced through his passive ability.

Bristleback suffers from a weak initial mana-pool. Later on, he gets kited very easily.

I don't really think Bristleback should get those aggresive extension though.

Soul Ring seems to be a popular early game pickup, worth adding?

You say "Moon Shard" in the last item but it is showing "Sacred Relic".

In a lane on my own against two heroes, I was constantly running out of mana. Switched out the treads for Arcane boots, and that solved the problem. I think it was worth it as Quill Spray was the only harass I could get off.
