6.88 - Standard Dragon Knight (Core/Mid) Build
By Torte de Lini
Dragon Knight is an early-game pusher that later turns into a ranged tank-like carry that can naturally corrode towers with his first level of Elder Dragon Form and later slow enemies with his third level of Elder Dragon Form. Dragon Knight also excels in flash-farming with Breathe Fire and can survive in lane with his passive ability that improves regeneration.

Dragon Knight is an all-around strong hero, but needs the early game advantage of towers to snowball to a late-game carry.

I think a Blink Dagger, should be added to at least 'situational'. It's solid on him vs certain teams ( bursting down or just diabling back line defensive supports, like dazzle/wyvern, and mobile mids/carries, like Qop, Storm and AM)

I haven't tried Maelstrom build, to be honest. Seems good though.
I prefer to pick Dragon Tail as the first ability at lvl 1, because early stun is really helpful for early kills, especially if your lane partner is a hi-damage ranger (sniper/drow/etc). Then maxed out other skills and stats first, 2.5 sec stun is quite long enough and it leveled badly.
Nice build btw. Gotta try.

I don't see any other build pointing to Malestorm, and most builds point towards Quelling Blade. (But I guess if mid Malestorm is slightly more valid than Quelling Blade.)

Other than that seems like a good build.
