I just started playing DoTA.

What is an easy hero I can use? I prefer kind of dark, or evil characters. But that doesnt matter too much.


What abilities should I get?

I'd recommend Leoric, Traxex, Sniper, Gondar, Bone, Centaur.

If you want to get better, try reading some guides from here,  playing against the AI (Link), and watching replays.

It's hard at the beginning, but with time you'll get the hang of it biggrin.png

Get omniknight. Not the easiest of hereos but really improves your teamplay and general awarness in team battles as opposed to getting hereos like sniper who need lots of ricing and I doubt you can last hit well.

Skill build on omni: max heal also get one level of repel at lvl 2 then max slow aura , max repel after, get ult always then ofc stats.

items: get arcane first then ask your team what to get next

Definitely Traxex,The Drow Ranger since you like dark-cool heroes.She's easily playable.More info on the link.

And note that she has the 3rd best sight range. 1800/1700.

1800 at day, 1700 at night.

Traxex will be good and Luna can be pretty nice try Sniper he can be a good starting heroes and he has the longest range even the tower cant hit him when he maxes his skill that gives him more range

Sniper and Clinkz are definitely not Noob-friendly heroes. You need to be very good at last-hit, aware of your environment, and be good at sneaking around.

I would say Skeleton King, Bounty Hunter, Vengeful Spirit, Centaur, Spirit Breaker, Lion, Sand King, and Treant Protector.

My hero when i was a beginner is CRIXALIS THE SAND KING.
My hand's speed increased when i played him and learned keyboard shortcuts. My last hitting also improved when i was using him because of the 3rd skill.

I suggest Axe would be perfect... he is really evil demonlike, and a strong starter, pack him up at the start with two stout shields, tango, he is good to go, a real evil bully,
reminder:
only stupid punks makes double vanguard.
hood, vanguard, dagger, BoT, shiva's and heart would also be a good final item for axe...
super strong..

Lion the Demon Witch is pretty easy to use, and teaches you the basics of a disabler's role in a team.

Seriously, try Kardel (dwarven sniper), or traxex (Drow ranger). Both of them are really easy to use, all you need is item with attack speed and damage, just hit them with normal attacks, and you will learn the basics of DoTA. smile.gif

How the hell is Balanar hard. You got 2 skills. One used before engaging in battle, the other to nuke/slow. He can literally kill with the right mouse button and V key only.

My noob friend whose currently under my guidance loves Leoric the Skeleton King.
Other than that, he generally likes STR-type heroes.
Another hero that he likes is Lucifer (Doom Bringer).

If you ask about myself, my first hero was Rylai Crestfall (Crystal Maiden).
You play her by frostbiting a target, then keep hitting 'em till the end of the spell duration.
Just use frostnova afterward to deal area magic damage & slow.
