Juggernaut Skill Descriptions

Blade Fury (F)

Level 1 – Deals 80 damage per second
Level 2 – Deals 100 damage per second
Level 3 – Deals 120 damage per second
Level 4 – Deals 140 damage per second

Mana Cost: 110
Cooldown: 30,28,26,24

This skill will help him to get first blood or even escape because it gives him spell immunity. A nice skill to have. The only drawback is that you cannot attack while spinning. However, if you’re attack the building, you still can use the normal attack while spinning. The animation won’t showed though.

Healing Ward (G)

Summons a Healing Ward that heals all nearby allied units’ life. Lasts 25 seconds.

This is a late game skill. It will be useful when pushing and raxing without going back to the fountain.

Level 1 – 10% chance.
Level 2 – 18% chance.

This skill provides the second highest dps boost among other criticals, being inferior only to Mortred’s level 3 Coup de Grace.

Juggernaut Item Build

1. Boots of Speed and 1 Set of Tangos For Getting First Blood
OR 2x Slippers of Agility, 2 Set of Tangos, 2x Mana Potion in Safe Mode (Solo)
2. Finish 2x Wraith Band
3. Helm of Dominator
4. Finish Power Tread or Phase Boots or Boots of Travel
5. Finish Battle Fury

Your core item should be like this:
/ /

Wraith band to increase his agility and hit points a bit. Lifesteal is pretty crucial for a high dps hero so he needs Helm of Dominator which can be upgraded into Satanic later. Splash damage is needed while casting omnislash for damaging/killing more enemies.

Power Tread to increase his DPS and stat or Phase Boot to maximize Blade Fury while chasing enemy or Boots of Travel for pushing more efficient.

Sange Yasha, Diffusal Blade, Stygian Desolator, and Mjolnir are other good orbs for him. But in exchange, he must have Vladmir’s Offering.

Juggernaut Late Game Items

Here is dream build for him:

Those all are useful items for him. Satanic is the best lifesteal item especially when unholy rage is activated. Battlefury for splash damage. Power Tread and A.C. for attack speed. Aghanim to increase his ultimate: omnislash. The Butterfly for attack speed, damage and evasion.

In some situations, this build is not suitable. For example, when there are many disabler enemy hero then BKB is more needed, when there is enemy who like fleeing using TP Scroll, Boots of Travel or special skill then he needs MKB to stop it.

Juggernaut Strategy

You can pick this hero when your team needs a dps-carry hero and a healer.
You need to be supported by:
– Hero having AoE Damage for clearing the way faster such as Leshrac, Raigor, Crixalis, etc. When there is no creep, you can landing his ultimate on your enemies perfectly.
– Disabler hero such as Slitice and Rhasta to help you landing Blade Fury perfectly for getting first blood or just killing hero in early minutes. Of course disabler hero is still useful too in the mid game or late game.
– Mana provider such as crystal maiden or ezalor.

Beware of his counter:
– Disabler: if you are disabled how are you gonig to leech life?
– Wind walkers because they can escape you while you omnislahing thats why ALWAYS when you are about to gank wind walkers bring dust with you
– Blinkers…even more horrible then wind walkers because one blink and they are saved. Thats why you cant solo gank those, bring a disabler with you.

How to Use Blade Fury
Blade fury is just so good for a lot of things, and mostly its based on the spell immunity it gives you and not the damage, although for early game this damage is great.

You can use it to engage in team battles right away when they start because if you are the carry and you most likely will be almost all targeted spells will target you so if you don’t have the money for BKB then this is like lesser-BKB.

When you will run into the fight with bladefury first your opponents (especially if its pub) will get a little confused with their spells because you are supposed to be the target but you are immune. So now they have two choices:
1: Wait for you to stop spinning and then unload all of their spells but while they wait they will get raped by your teammates.
2: They will use spells on your teammates in which case they still most likely they are going to lose the battle if you got your omni up and you have sufficient damage.

Also Blade Fury can be used to escape:
1. Cast Blade Fury
2. Use TP / BoT while whirling.

In early minutes you can do both solo and with a partner. If solo, you should put him in the bottom for sentinel and top for scourge. If with a partner then it doesnt really matter. Don’t forget to block creep.

In the middle game, this is where you need to be ganking with your teammates and farming.

Late game is the time when you come out of the forest and start raping your team. If the game didn’t end yet then when your team push or be pushed, your healing ward will be handy. Oh and you could Roshan too.
