7.06f (Core) Standard Dragon Knight Build
By Torte de Lini
Dragon Knight is an early-game pusher that can turn into a semi-carry later in the game given the right advantage. With his ultimate: Elder Dragon Form, he rushes down initial towers with his Splash Damage and gives map-control to his allies to gank easier or to let Dragon Knight farm faster thanks to Dragon Breath and Dragon Blood to remain on the field and away from the fountain.

Great build.
safe lane farm or feed-all muted Aug 5, 2015 @ 5:50am 
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.
