Good solo lane heroes (not mid)
« on: May 13, 2012, 07:24:59 PM »
Hey all.

[Long Intro + General info]
Been playing for a few weeks now, sometimes solo-queue, sometimes with friends, and have been having a lot of fun.

I used to jungle all the time for my team on LoL, and today I decided to have my first go at jungling in DOTA. It was also my first game as lone druid and it went really well (for me). I took roshan solo at l9 and I really enjoyed the jungling in DOTA, a lot more so than LoL. Anyway, the issue we had was we didn't know who to put top solo (dire side) and the top lane actually fed a lot because he just couldn't lane against huskar + chen.

Putting solo-queue games like that aside, (need 17 more wins for 50+ bracket can't wait), because in this bracket few people seem to know how to do anything such as warding etc and NO ONE jungles so of course no one knows how to play in that style.

[Concluding question +TL: DR]: I need to know some good solo lane heroes (vs a duo, not mid) so that when my friends are on I can go jungling and know that we have an effective set-up.

Thanks for taking the time to read (and reply? :D), cheers.

A ranged hero with a AoE harass plus a regen / escape mech usually does well.

A few who come to mind are Lich, Mirana, Necrolyte and Dazzle.

I'm definitely no pro, so I'd wait for a few more suggestions.

Pretty much any kind of ranged hero, you just have to stay back (this is actually the key, depends less on hero).
Windrunner would be the first to come to mind...
Dark seer, lesh, death prophet, prophet, razor, sf, tinker, lina, rhasta, zeus, puck, veno, lion, clinkz, viper etc...

Yeah Necro is a no-deal
His harass depends too much on getting in close enough to either get a heal on the enemy hero or stay close enough for aura and auto attacks to do the trick, either way, against any people of competent skill level, you'll get your ass handed to you every time you come into range.

You can stand back and do nothing and get maybe a creep every wave, but Necro really shouldn't be run solo v dual if it can be avoided
Underfarmed Necro is useless necro

Zapple's are all okay, cept maybe SF in a side lane, if they're smart they'll outpick that sidelane easy
