    When I'm on the mountain (Kilimanjaro) They call me Meme Master
    It's not a fancy dendi Allstate hero despite being absurdly simplistic yet impact is huge

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but on NS if you get a couple kills early you want to end the game asap? I always go like 5/0 and then lose because I feel like after ~25 minutes I'm completely useless.

    tried to run this hero in a scrim against rvg as a 1; needless to say, we lost. hes like a strength version of bounty hunter, irrelevant to this meta i find.

    NS is super fucking legit especially against all these dazzles and embers. You have to run at shit at every opportunity you get and snowball hard the first night or it's tough to catch up later.

    item build is really situational on this hero since you can build almost anything and pwn

    i almost always just go boots urn and then whatever I feel I need. Sometimes Skullbasher sometimes BKB sometimes Vlad's (I feel like Helm is better). This guy is so strong in the first 10 minutes (KZZ said it best) but I feel like after 25 I'm just a free kill.

    I mean that's why I'm asking what you're making though like felony said it's situational

    I've made most items on ns at one point or another

    It's hard to go wrong just making items that help your team (hex, Shiva, meks, books, vlads, AC)

    It's frequently wrong to try to go "carry builds" unless you're super fuckin ahead

    Wrong as in suboptimal or whatever

    Doesn't improve your chance to win as much as making something else is what I mean

    NS is great, but knowing how to be aggressive with him takes some finesse

    Book is fun, bkb is core after your first item if you want to actually hit stuff, vlads is good if your team benefits from it, aghs can be nice, armlet is a way to get yourself killed unless you're stomping, snys decent if you can get it early, mjolnir might be good now if you're rich, ac is good if you can actually make it...etc you can make a ton of shit on NS.

    You can make whatever, but just don't be useless

    I can't stand being useless during day and having no means to farm. Hate phase boots on him with a passion. But with just treads you don't hit warp speeds. I build treads drums maelstrom. The maelstrom allows him to farm during day without feeling like ur falling behind. After maelstrom its situational, but lately I've been either doing necro3 if we are on a time limit to break base, or if they are still out and fighting I do blademail then finish mjonir

    I feel like the vision advantage you give your team at night is the most important part of the hero
