Purge's Guide to Bristleback
By pudge
Bristleback is a tanky semi carry hero who becomes very difficult to kill with the right items.

His main damage source comes from your Quills, which you should use to harass, kill, and last hit with. Your second damage source comes from your ultimate, which makes your right clicks do some seriouis damage, especially with the -armor.

Above all, make sure you play bristleback aggressively, tanking a lot of damage so that your allies don't, since your back will protect you! Spam Quills and Goo in teamfights!

Don't buy a Vanguard. Stick with a Stout Shield + RoH for as long as can you fit them into your slots. Use the RoH for a hood and sell the Stout after a Heart.

The point about the Phases is very valid, didn't realise this myself until I read the guide.
