I like going for the Tranquil Boots + Soul Ring combo when I play as Warlock so that I can play more proactively on a lower budget. I also like getting an Urn of Shadows to accelerate the healing/damaging powers of Shadow Word and follow it up with Fatal Bonds. Even with Midas, I think it's safe to say it takes a helluva long time to get Scepter and Refresher.

Warlock is easily one of the most aggressive Supports in Dota 2, and he works magic with Aghanim's Scepter in conjunction with the Refresher Orb. :)

I like this guide, and your previous guides. Glad that you cut down on the amount of items listed in the "core" slot, as before Warlock was a bit too greedy of a support. My only change would be one level of fatal bonds level 2, then leave the rest of levels where they were. While I agree that additional levels of it don't have much of an effect, it can be a great farming and lane-pushing tool.

Good items,but i think ability build should be different.

Generally a good guide, but the ability build needs to be changed. Not taking any points in Upheaval until level 10 is ridiculous, considering how strong the spell is. Not to mention maxing Fatal Bonds over Shadow Word.

why would you put 3 points in bonds before 6? you won't have big team fights so 4 targets is more then enough, 3 points in shadow word is way more important as it synergises with bonds as a constant dps. Also getting a talisman for that extra int is often a big mistake people make because it doesn't build in something useful for warlock, get either 3 branches and build a magic wand ( always get a magicwand because core item for any hero ) building it into a wand gives you way more utility to work with.

rest of the items are just the obvious warlock items, maybe add some more experimental items because not every game will be beneficial to get a aganim on.
