    I notice that most people even at decent mmr are so inefficient at farming with this hero, you will see people just lasthitting and a-clicking in a lane
    I mean even if you suck at microing you can shift queue a-click jungle camps with your hero while lasthitting on a lane with wolves

    Yes you should push as much as possible with this hero but there are many times where this is a lot better and you will actually get so much more gold and since this hero is so broken its better to just get a sick timing on some core items with efficient farming and then try to end the game instead of being brainafk and a-clicking a lane whenever you can

    i usually solo farm the jungle while getting last hits + denies in lane with wolves when i play lycan, it's easier to do that way, you can just shift command yourself through the jungle and actually be able to clear it all, if you do it with the wolves they'll just die


    this way is easier and probably gives you just as much exp and more farm as you can spend all your attention getting every last hit in the lane with the wolves

    exactly thats what i intended to describe, its just painful to watch people being so inefficient with a lot of heroes

    I mean, I dont play this hero too often so I'm definitely not the master but it seems this hero is only good for rosh and split push, and even that is whatever. Like what does he even do with aegis?

    His kit seems lacking, anything that isnt zoo aura seems to be terrible. His mana pool is awful. He can't lane for shit.

    Like if I wanted to make someone disappear with one hit, I'd pick ta. If I want to rat/rosh, Id pick prophet or something. I want to carry and give people damage, luna...I guess.

    I don't know, I feel like I sound retarded but whenever I try playing this hero I just end up trying to fight and people just stun me and I disappear. Then I get a bkb and they kill my teammates and I dont know.

    Just give him enough mana so he can use shadowblade or blademail or something and he'll be dope.

    make lycan phase too

    this is a kill their barracks while they're not looking kind of hero

    it's probably super hard to win games if you're the only carry but if you have another hero that scales well into late you can force the other team off pushes by threatening their buildings while your teammates get bigger

    Did this hero get nerfed or buffed this patch I can't tell. It kinda feels like Lycan got nerfed because of crit loss on wolves. That being said his damage output during shapeshift with necrobook crits is fucking ABSURD.

    Do the new jungle changes/items allow him to jungle from level one?

    His crit gives illusions 34% increased damage so instead of 2 illusions doing 66% damage they are doing 87% of lycans damage per second. That's pretty amazing actually. Against towers illusions deal 25% less damage so you're doing an additional 65% of your DPS with ult on and 50% without.

    So the buildup would be boots vlads necro3 manta AC slotting in BKB/Abyssal if the game requires it.

    I think I need to do some math on AC to see if it gives better DPS.

    He got buffed I THINK based on playing him just once. Damage output is higher on a single target during ult, people melt

    Fuck I totally forgot to include Feral Impulse and Howl into damage calculations for manta. Yea Manta seems like a very strong item for him.

    I'm really excited to get home and play this hero. Anyone have experience jungling him this patch? How fast is he?
