Troll Warlord is one of the strongest hard carries in the whole game. His signature ability,

Berserker”s Rage, allows him to switch between melee and ranged attacks, both with their pros and cons. He is most devastating in a one on one situation because of his ability

*

Fervor but he also can put out major damage in teamfights with

Whirling Axes either slowing the enemy or making them miss. Finally, his ultimate

*

Battle Trance increases attack speed, gives lifesteal, and prevents death, but makes the hero less controllable.

Pros Cons

Carry

Troll Warlord should always be played as a carry. A good Troll player is constantly farming, pushing, or taking objectives. One of the first important items on Troll Warlord is

*

Morbid Mask, which can be upgraded to

*

Mask of Madness. With this item, one can farm the jungle without losing much health. Combined with

*

Phase Boots and

*

Sange and Yasha (or

*

Manta Style), you should be able to fight in early team fights. You should find a good balance between farming and pushing, depending on your team”s situation.

You will usually want to start with a point Berserker”s Rage as Troll Warlord is definitely stronger in melee form, with additional movement speed, a lower base attack time, and bonus armor which really helps your laning phase.

Then, depending on the game situation, you can either take a point or two in Fervor (for a more farming playstyle) or max out Whirling Axes (for a more kill-centric playstyle). Maxing both skills in tandem can be effective as well, as long as one optimizes farming and fighting appropriately. Fervor does not scale all that well with extra levels. The first point is already half as good as the fourth. One overly-simple way to look at it is that taking a second point improves Fervor by 33% (from 15 to 20 attack speed), the third by 25% (from 20 to 25) and the fourth by 20% (from 25 to 30). Do not underestimate extra levels in Berserker”s Rage; +10 flat movement speed is always nice to have, and the increased duration on the root will make the difference between a kill and a close escape for your enemies. Although the extra attack speed from leveling Fervor will help you “perma-root” an opponent, the duration of the root scales better. Granted, you need to proc a root first. Overall, there is no obvious way to spend your skill points to maximise your damage output or your kill potential.

You always pick up your Battle Trance when you are able to do so, at levels 6, 12, and 18.

Tips & Tactics

General

Troll Warlord is faster in melee mode, making it easier to chase or escape from enemies. It also increases your armor, so switching to melee form whenever damage is received reduces the overall damage you take.When your target enemy is starting to become harder to chase in melee form, keep in mind that you still have a ranged form. Ranged Whirling Axes can aid in crippling them, so that you can revert back to melee form to finish them off.Augment Troll Warlord”s power with damage-boosting items, since his power lies in his excellent attack speed.Because of its scaling boost to attack speed Fervor is usually leveled up last with 1 point at level 4 for tower pushing/Roshan/beating on a single hero. Having your movement speed and root duration higher will greatly benefit your survivability and chase, since Fervor is good with even only one skill point.Try to focus on one target rather than switching from one to another, since Fervor makes him more dangerous the more he attacks the same target with each blow.Attack speed items such as

*

Gloves of Haste and

*

Hyperstone allow you to build up Fervor quickly, but do not scale well if you opt to max it early on.

Abilities

*

Berserker”s RageTry to finish off running heroes, zone enemy melee heroes or last-hitting creeps by changing to ranged form.When toggled on, exchanges Whirling Axes (Ranged) with Whirling Axes (Melee).

*

Whirling Axes (Ranged)Only real purpose of this spell is to slow the opponent.The melee and ranged versions of Whirling Axes have separate cooldowns. Keep this in mind when in battle, so that you can output more damage with them.You should go in melee form after casting this spell to gain bonus movement speed, making chasing more efficient.

*

Whirling Axes (Melee).This spell is your main damaging nuke, as the damage scales with level.Axes whirl in a circle around your hero, extending to a radius of 350 units before coming back, each axe having a radius of 100 units.Inflicts a blind effect on enemy heroes and creeps, causing them to miss some of their attacks.You should use this spell for farming, pushing, teamfights. However, it does not affect Roshan.

*

FervorThis ability provides much of your damage output.Try not to constantly switch targets to prevent your Fervor stacks from resetting.Most effective for one-versus-one, destroying buildings and Roshan.Synergizes with Berserker”s Rage to facilitate rooting consecutively.

Battle TranceBattle Trance helps Troll Warlord survive longer in fights.When attacking during Battle Trance, Troll Warlord can only use his abilities.When Troll Warlord is not attacking during Battle Trance, he can be controlled like normal.Troll Warlord during Battle Trance does not need to turn to target his abilities and items.If you think the enemies can disable you during teamfights, use Battle Trance early on to stay alive.Try to stay in melee form to better root the enemies with Battle Trance”s increased movement and attack speed.Switch to ranged form if the enemies are escaping, or if they are all at low health so Troll Warlord can just finish them off.
