        What about the cloak aura creeps like small ursas and cents?

        I do get them on Enchantress vsing a Zeus/Tinker, like a free Pipe of Insight passive.
        You can STACK creep cloak auras indefinetely, which nobody knows for some reason.

          Man, I can barely keep track of what I'm doing


            What about the poison wolves


              You know, most people comments on article with "First!", "Second".
              Can you stop being childish, and appreciate the content presented to you? They worked hard for that too.
              A better response would be criticism, asking questions, etc.


                Purge creep is the best.


                  2 important factors that were overlooked.

                  Dark Troll's skeletons are the very best for farming the early jungle with Chen or Enchantress. You can get hand of Midas in well under 5 minuets if you happen to start with the Dark Troll. Also the skeletons benefit from Lone Druid's Battle Cry which can be devastating during a push.

                  Harpies, all of them, have the greatest vision in the game, even greater than that of an observer ward. A patrolling or force staffed to high ground harpy can provide superior vision and will not decay after 6 minuets.

                      The skeleton warriors from the Troll make useful scouts. In fact, not one mention of scouting with neuts in this post. What would one expect from DotA players though ;)

                        Cool, didnt know that with the Harpies and the Vision.
                        Thats pretty nice and good to know.

                        I didnt even know about the move-click so creeps do follow.

                          why isn't there a filter to remove first, 1st, etc... comments?


                            the purgue of satyr banisher is equal to diff blade? i once use it (as doom) on omni (before 7.00) and didnt purgue any of his skills..

                              Great Post -- I wish it had been a little more comprehensive & discussed all of the creeps, including the ancients and how to deal with them as LS, etc., but on the whole this was incredibly helpful.

                              My take away is that the Centaur with stomp or the alpha wolf are the way to go if you just want the best creep for "most" situations.

                                I need to get into HotD and creeps, this is going to be a great list to start out with. Thanks.


                                  @Sarllo right now they both states 'Basic Dispel', so they should be the same

                                  The Beast of US East

                                    A lack of any auras on the creep also make it a better one-time gank companion, rather than a loyal friend for the duration of the game.



                                      Inb4 2k scrubs like me prioritize on getting the wolf because of laziness


                                        hi dota buff guys
                                        hi mom
                                        im famous

                                          The vision tactics you described are certainly possible, but I don't see them being massively important. Spending that much gold to get an item that can be so helpful in teamfights, only to use its main draw to sit a harpy on high ground for more than six minutes seems like a waste. By the time the team has both helm and force staff the cost of wards is fairly inconsequential. Still, it's a cool trick if coordinated correctly. For instance, you could send your harpy to high ground before a push, and when you are established in the lane you can grab another creep to initiate when the area the harpy is watching is no longer a priority.

                                          I fully expect Valve to make changes to helm, but the time that it has been at the top has been valuable for people that haven't given micro much thought, and your tips are proof of both how strong the item is and how much micro can add to a players strength.

                                            Which ancient creep is the best for life stealer impregnation?

                                              In terms of a vehicle for a naixbomb probably the centaur as it will stun, but all controlled units share naix's ms. You can get Ancients later so probably the dragon with his fire breath.


                                                last please

                                                replace my 5 with range c...

                                                  What trouble me the most is when morph sells hotd to get other item. If you have 300 attack damage which is very likely you can have up to 90 damage. It is even better than daedalus and mkb to some extend and the biggest upgrade is you can put on back pack. Also do wolf damage stack?

                                                    Is it popular for any 4 position supports to pick up HotD?


                                                      wtf I hate chen, totally.



                                                        People aren't building hotd on Morph and if they did, they would definitely sell it to free up an item slot. He has more than enough attack speed from Treads + Agility and he gets all the regen he needs with linkens. Hotd isn't the item for Morph.


                                                          You forgot to mention ensnare pierces spell immunity. It's really useful against jug and LS If you pick up a hotd

                                                          la D gaga

                                                            I tried to use Hill Troll Priest's heal but I don't get how it works ?
                                                            I mean I do understand how the skill works, but I've tried to set auto cast for it (in "special unit hotkeys" for "neutral creeps") and he just casts it once and... stops lol

                                                            Ras Al Ghul

                                                              what about the timings? the key timing and camps for farming jungle (if it is possible as you say) or the core heroes for jungle farming =( i want more info ahah, but is a good post.


                                                                Right click the heal, like a toggle, to turn on auto heals


                                                                  Hum what about the centaur 2 sec aoe stun creep D:


                                                                    Pick Chen:
                                                                    Get 2 SATYR TORMENTOR and Spam Hadouken at your enemy.
                                                                    Even better, 2 WILDWING RIPPER and throw tornados while your enemy try to farm.


                                                                      No comment on Ancient creeps?!


                                                                        This is certainly helpful for players who haven't thought of the new HotD micro meta.

                                                                            Most of good support, who understand the game will buy domi. Mostly when their carry have a great potential push ability like juggernaut, luna, sf, drow, etc. Even they dont have that, dominatior creep also can be use for gank.

                                                                            Me, mostly play safelane core almost every game buy domi for pushing potential or even stacking ancients.

                                                                            [IR] Culverin

                                                                                You can autocast dominated creeps' abilities?
