BIOIn the dungeons of Devarque, a vengeful wizard lay in shackles, plotting his escape. He shared his cell with a gibbering creature known as N”aix, a thief cursed by the Vile Council with longevity, so that its life-sentence for theft and cozening might be as punishing as possible. Over the years, its chains had corroded, along with its sanity; N”aix retained no memory of its former life and no longer dreamt of escape. Seeing a perfect vessel for his plans, the wizard wove a spell of Infestation and cast his life-force into N”aix”s body, intending to compel N”aix to sacrifice itself in a frenzy of violence while the mage returned to his body and crept away unnoticed. Instead, the wizard found his mind caught in a vortex of madness so powerful that it swept away his plans and shattered his will. Jarred to consciousness by the sudden infusion of fresh life, N”aix woke from its nightmare of madness and obeyed the disembodied voice that filled its skull, which had only the one thought: To escape. In that moment Lifestealer was born. The creature cast its mind into dungeon guards and soldiers, compelling them to open locks and cut down their companions, opening an unobstructed path to freedom while feeding on their lives. Lifestealer still wears the broken shackles as a warning that none may hold him, but on the inside remains a prisoner. Two minds inhabit the single form–a nameless creature of malevolent cunning, and the Master whose voice he pretends to obey. INTRODUCTIONNaix is the best jungler in DotA, he can jungle conveniently since he’s Level 1. He use lifesteal to survive in jungle. Like his name, Lifestealer is the best lifesteal-er in DotA, all his skill are designed to maximize his lifesteal ability. That makes him one of the best one-by-one hero in DotA, he never lack of HP because he always receive new HP from stealing others.

The madness and brutality of N”aix makes him a vicious and unrelenting foe in combat.Rage is a skill you use to carry your team into victory. With this skill, you gain an additional attack speed that will make you to deal lots of damage to enemy. The most important is: You gain magic immunity during the duration of this skill. With the magic immunity, you will be inuvlnerable to magic and become an outstanding hero in a teamfight.2. Feast
Regenerates a portion of the attacked enemy”s current HP and deals the same portion of damage per attack.
After escaping from his cell in Devarque, N”aix subsisted on flesh and bones of those unfortunate to cross his path.This skill is your main lifeteal skill. You need this to do jungle on early-mid game. With this skill, you can survive in jungle and get enough farm to get nice items for becoming a carry for your team.This skill depends on enemy”s HP, the more his HP the more your attack. so if you fight a thousands HP enemy on late game, this skill will really helps you.3. Open Wounds
Lifestealer rends an enemy unit, slowing the victim”s movespeed and allowing all allies to lifesteal on that unit. All damage dealt will steal life, including damage from spells. The victim recovers movement speed over the duration.
Fresh wounds and the scent of blood often draw out the scavengers to finish the job.Slowing sown your enemy, this skill makes you can easily catch your opponent. He (your target) will be slowed and cannot run from you. Also, the attacker of your target will gain an additional lifesteal whether it is a magic attack or normal attack. With this, skill, and combined with Feast, your lifesteal will be so high and can absorb so many HP from your opponent.4. Infest
Lifestealer will infest the body of the target unit, lying dormant and undetectable inside. When he reveals himself, he deals damage to all nearby enemy units. The Lifestealer can gain experience from units that die while he is Infesting a unit. If the unit is a creep, he will devour it first, gaining health equal to the unit”s current HP. Does not work on enemy Heroes.
With this infestation, N”aix consumes the life blood of the host, restoring him back to full unholy power.Going inside a unit, creeps (ally or foe, or jungle) and hero (ally). With this skill you can do fast farming in jungle because it will make your target instantly explode and you get the gold and experience, very good to use infeest on big creeps like Centaur, Wildkin, Troll, etc.This skill is also deal damage near the explosion after you consume your target. So it is also a decent damage dealer to initaite a temfight and fight enemy.For initiating with this skill, go inside your friend and if he already arrives and attack your opponent, come out, it will deal damage to all nearby enemy. Don”t afraid, your friend will not exploding like a creep.This skill is also useful for escaping. If you are on a difficult situation and must run, you can go inside the creep and stay there. usually enemy will follow the creep where there are you inside it. You may call your friends to help you and save you from the enemy.5. Consume

Why maxed Crystal Nova before Arcane Aura? Rage before Open Wound? You will need the extra magic imuunity duration for rage for your defense in teamfights. And Open Wound Level 1 is enough for early-mid game.

Once the game start, I recommend you to straight go into the easy camp in the jungle. (Don’t make yourself visible in the easy camps right in sec 30 into the game, or you will waste your time waiting there). Quelling Blade + Stout Shield + Feast is enough to kill the easy camp in level 1. Keep fighting the easy camps after you are ready to fight aother creeps. Maybe at level 3-4 you already have enough ower to fight vs Stone Golem or Ogre. And in level 5-6 you can fight Centaur, Troll, etc.Hand of midas is considered a good item for you. With mudas, you can get exp and gold faster than without midas. Very recommended to buy this as your 1st item.
Mid GameKeep jungling is the best option. Why not? You are the best jungler in Dota, you can jungle easily and become the highest level + the richest in the game. After you have your boots (Pt is recommended) and maybe you already level 10+, you now can farm the ancients. Ancients give the most gold than other camps (except Roshan). Very recommended for you to focus Farming in just 2 main location > 1. Ancients, 2. Large canps the nearest to the ancient camp. With just focus farming in these location, and keep calm, you will reach enough gold to carry the team. Also remember to use Midas to big creeps like Centaur, Wildkin etc. And also if you want to be faster in farming, use Infest to creeps, it will instantly kill the creeps and don’t waste your time attacking the creeps.
Late GameOn late game it is your time to shine. You are the carry. You are the one who will save your team from loss. Carry the team into victory. You should already have some nice items that will deal lots of damage to enemies. There is many possibility for Naix. You can buy Desolator+Mordiggian or you can buy Tarrasque + Mkb or Basher?There are lots of possibilities for you. Just choose one you are into it and carry your team with it. The key of successful carry is: be focus on one target, focus, and focus. Right click the right target, not the creeps. And after you succeeded kill your target, you can change to another target.Oh I almost forgot, you can initiate a teamfight by using Infest into your friend, and come out if your friend already near the enemies.Infest also useful to run from enemies.
