ALT-TAB Guide to Admiral Bulldog's Lone Druid
By yod
Quick guide for experimented players. Item and skill build directly come from the observations I've made of Admiral Bulldog competitive games.

About the Human/ Bear Form, a common mistake done by pub players is to stay in Human Form while laning. It seems to be good to stay in Human Form because you have more MS and ranged attack, but you become greatly vulnerable to ganks. On higher level you will get ganked with smokes and Blink Daggers, +35ms is not going to save you. But +450-1000 HP and +6-14 armor will delay your death and give enough time for your teammates to TP and countergank.
Most of the time, if you switch form during a battle, your survive chances are pretty low because it takes around 1-1.5 seconds to switch. Unless you are 1v1 or 1v2 with a stronge bear, you will die.

You might want to keep your Druid on Human Form to benefit from the increased move speed and ranged attack. But if you are facing aggressive heroes on your lane, I recommend you to use Bear Form as soon as you are lv 6. Keep your hero in the back and use the bear to get the last hits and harass.

Next level : manage to pull the enemy creeps with your bear and lure 2 waves of them between your tier 1 and tier 2 towers.
Video showing Bulldog facing a trilane (AM, WR and SD). He still manages to get 1 wave pulled to him while those 2 supports harass his bear.

SWEET this works well, the only thing to note, is that the bear will do the most attacking with the support of Lone Druid...only time to transform into bear form is for taking out towers. But I still liked this ^_^
