DotA is the most popular custom made map for Warcraft III. To give players a better comprehension of this complex and sometimes complicated game here is a hero guide.
One of the most evil, horror looking heroes in DotA is also one of strong. Alone, or ganking Pudge will always cause terror into the enemy that he grabs. You can recruit him from the Scourge Strength Tavern.
Of course, this monster has a terrifying story: "An undead behemoth seemingly impervious to even the most potent magic, this starving abomination roams the battlefield, continually in search of unwary prey.
It is said his victims catch only a glimpse of his monstrous frame as they are dragged them through the shadows, bleeding profusely as a jagged hook etches deeper in their flesh.
Wails of agony echo in the distance, only to be drowned out by the Butcher's maniacal laughter as he severs their limp bodies with his great maw. Unspeakable horrors ensue in a deathly silence, a dreadful omen for what is to come."
All of it's Pudge's abilities are meant to make him grow into an unstopable abomination:
Meat Hook (Shortkey T) - Pudge shoots a hook towards and enemy or a location making the first unit that comes in contact with to be dragged back. The hook deals 90/180/270/360 pure damage to the unsuspecting victim and a small mini-stun that stops spells. Heroes that are invisible can also be hooked and will take damage.
Rot (Shortkey R) - This is a weapons that all Pudge enemies know and fear. With nice slow effect (20%) and a large damage per second (35/60/85/110) this ability can also be fatal to Pudge itself. As the Meat Hook, this will also slow and deal damage to invisible units.
Flesh Heap (Shortkey F) - This is a the spell that helps Butcher become stronger with each kill he makes. For each hero kill the hero gets 0.9/1.2/1.5/1.8 strenght. This skill also gives him extra resistance to all spells: 4/8/12/16%. Another cool feature is that Pudge can be in a 450 AoE area when an enemy hero dies and he still gets the strength bonus.
Dismember (Shortkey D) - Butcher's ultimatum is a powerful weapon, almost deadly in combination with Rot. It will grab an enemy target and chew on it causing 75/125/175 damage every second. It will last 3 seconds and causes magical damage. Chows down on a target, causing excruciating pain. Lasts 3 seconds. It can be improved by Aghanim's Scepter.
Pudge needs to grow so it's recommended to tackle the middle lane alone. Don't worry he can manage even against range opponents. As for the artifacts make sure you build a lot life regeneration items along with some extra movement speed.
