    Vlads diffusal is the way to go, then BoTs. You can usually solo kill supports if you rush diffusal and have it by 10 minutes (using doppelwalk to initiate).

    Unless you got a Kotl or something, its usually a big mistake to max Spirit Lance early. 2-1-4-1 is acceptable for ganking, while accelerating your farming/jungling.

    If you don't get early levels in Juxtapose, you better have a midas or a lot of kills and space, otherwise your farming speed is going to be really terrible.

    More than 2 levels of Spirit Lance really is a waste, since by the time you're level 7-8 the laning stage is already ending.

    You rush diffusal, not vlads, although you can get the cheap vlads components for sustain early.

    Vlads allows you to jungle and send illusions to lane, accelerating your farm quite a lot. The 15% damage aura also works nicely with PL's high base damage/stats.

    I'm pretty sure even if you wanted to maximize jungle farming or w.e Yasha would still be better

    Sure that's the Aui_2000 item build (he also maxes Juxtapose), but that was before the tranquils change. You need Vlads for sustain now. Diffusal is also better than an early yasha since it allows you to (1) gank people (2) purge dust (3) gives you intelligence/mana. Yasha->Manta after diffusal is fine though.

    There's a bug with TB and armlet in that your illusions spawn at full/max hp no matter what your current HP is... not sure it works with PL though.

    That's what I've always done. Often get yasha then complete diffusal before finishing manta depending on how the game is going.

    4-4-0-1 is terrible. I can see someone maxing lance, especially when they have kotl, but there's little point in maxing doppelwalk since it only scales mana cost and cd. In fact, it's often worth leaving doppelwalk at level 1 until level 22 in favor of stats since it scales so poorly depending on your style of play.

    Minus tranqs, leave brown boots to bots and skip Aquila for vlads and early yasha
