Purge's Guide to Timbersaw
By pudge
Timbersaw is a great hero who fits into a lot of different lane setups! You can offlane, or safe farm(even mid!)!

He gets really strong at level 6 because of his mana inexpensive ulti that lets you harass opponents out of lane, and set up kills! He scales well late because of pure damage, and is a really high aggression hero who is quite tanky.

You have to be generally passive before level 6, but once you get some levels and mana regen, the hero is SERIOUSLY fun!

Really nice guide, only think there are a couple of useful items missing:
- Linken's Sphere, especially useful against Doom and/or Orchid carriers
- Scythe of Vyse, disable and lots of mana.
- Eul's Scepter, a very good alternative if you're not having the best game and Bloodstone isn't an option anymore.

It's a good guide, but should follow the normal routines and not repeat items. I ended up buying 2 stout shields before I realized my mistake.

Wellwritten but i don't understand why reactive armor is maxed last. I think you need that extra armor if you're going mid to avoid getting harassed and eventually killed.

Hey purge, i would like if you can tell me your opinion about this item build:
1. Arcane boots + Wand
2. Blade mail
3. Linken Sphere (i skip that when they dont possess any target spells)
4. Bloodstone
The reason i rush rarely bloodstone is that it can be usless if you die alot and dont get any kills, i think its kinda risky, but i would like to hear what you have to say about this item build and the reason why you need to rush bloodstone in the first place.
