If your hero dies ofter, you need HP, so you get some bracers.
If you find yourself with low HP/mana very often, you could get a bottle or a perse
If the enemy team has a lot of disables, you should get BKB
If the enemy team has a lot of nukes, you should get pipe.
If your hero has a skill that requires you to be close to the enemy, you get dagger
If your hero is very good at pushing, you get travels


etc etc

Foede gave a pretty good guidance. As you're new, you can learn from guides. By experimenting with differents build will help you to understand better.

The most important for starters is try out as many different builds as you can

We're all gonna die one day, most of us will never know how we're gonna die until the actual moment we die unless the person who knew how he/she would die had planned it, thou making it a suicide. As some of you guys might know, there's a 1000 character limit on this little piece of shit and I've only reached 670 so far. Only because I want to reach the limit I'm totally gonna write here until I've exactly reached the limit. For you pedos/stalkers out there, I live in Sweden (northern europe/scandinavia), to be precise in Stockholm which is Sweden's capital. Tbh there are more stuff in Sweden than blonde girls.

Find out the sinergies of the items and your skills, that is core items that a hero must have. Never buy an item which is really not necessary like lothar for rikimaru or butterfly for alleria, those are the worst combine of items.
Secondly, there are conditional items, it depends on you team and your enemy. Find the best item that makes you GG.
