7.06f (Core) Standard Lycan (Carry) Build
By Torte de Lini
Lycan is an incredible split-pusher and auto-attacker thanks to his great stats and more specifically his ultimate: Shapeshift. With Shapeshift, Lycan can either choose to split-push incredible fast with his Summon Wolves and Howl bonus damage buff or team-fight with the critical strikes and maximum speed set forth from Shapeshift. Lycan strives on overwhelming his foe in damage and being able to clean up by chasing down fleeing enemies after a fight.

Lycan suffers from being burst down by magic.

Damn, I've been using this build and it has not been looking too bright for me. Everytime I play Lycan, I'm always looking to push. Whenever I push, the other team just shuts me down. I bought a BKB and activated it and TPed out. However, it did not go like that. A Wraith King on the enemy team just COMPLETELY destroyed me in 2 hits. I push every game but lose. My pushing is even 10/10 for the Lycan games! Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

"Black King Bar is Lycan's only true core item as it prevents him from being disabled under any circumstances."

Not true. There are many ways you can be disabled with BKB active....
