Nerubian Weaver Guide, Build & Strategy - Anub'seran Guide (Dota 6.61 Changes)

Nerubian WeaverAnub'seran the Nerubian Weaver Guide, Build & Strategy. Nerubian Weaver has just got a changes on her Watcher skill on Dota 6.61 (Silencer also got a changes too!) into the Urna Swarm. And recently on Dota 6.67 Urna Swarm is replaced with The Swarm.

Anub'seran. The name of this creature strikes fear into all of those who have seen the Nerubians. Even the famed assassin Anub'arak is hesitant to fight this beast, which comes from the plane of the spirit world. He can swiftly walk through his enemies, bending their bodies to his will, causing pain while he strides through them. With his powers over the timeless plane, he can also step inside and throw himself into the past to keep himself from death. He can call an attack from the future to strike his foes, making his onslaught more deadly. Anub'seran. Only the fools do not fear his name.

  1. I believe its more balanced now. No more Ion Shell Watchers -_-
    Cool change though! Icefrog has such cool ideas ;)

  2. yeah,, with proper position in the map, its silence capabilities could ruin enemies skill w/c could really be handy in team clash..
    thats a buff..

    but i still prefer the watchers cause their fast, invi, and has quite a range of sight.. their like fast moving free observer wards

  3. Well, from the first glance, i like the old watcher since it's faster and invisible. But i will give some game with the new Scarab first, i think it will need more micro management compared to the old one ^^

  4. I think that his wards now are for hunting in the forest since they can easily hide in tree gaps without being noticed. Nice innovation!

  5. wew, now shukuchi lv 4 has 6 second cd and last 4 second. Only 2 second to attack this creature ^

  6. zomg! 6 sec cd on shukuchi? wtf.
    This game got so pro-invisible. Now weaver can easily keep up with all the other uberfast heroes. And coonsidering that a well placed line of 4-6 scarabs in a row, triggered one after another makes weaver an uberannoying hero now. This silence surely turns the tides. Nice change though as youll need a bit practice.
    Still love weaver against chen. Placing wards @ neutral camps is so lovely^^

  7. Nice touch considering that Weaver is a Nerubian/Bug/Ant thing...

    considering the Burrow skill of the Scarab, I think IceFrog should increase the sight radius of that don't you think?

  8. seriously, can you guys really say that this was a good thing to buff weaver? she was overpowered before, why make her even better. Hmmm let's see, lets make the unkillable weaver be able to silence people now, great idea.

  9. the scarab's aren't bad.the stackling dmg they deal after they suicide along with a weaver carrying a radiance can really fast make an oponet to retreat to his base:)

  10. Hey guys!
    First I didnt like this hero but now he is one of my favorite!
    My buys are:-

    Early game:-

    2 x bracers
    Power Threads

    Late Game:-

    Try this guys Its gr8!

    And his skills....
    I take his 1st skill 1st so that I can place 2 scarab at the rune spawning areas! Then I max out Shukuchi and Geminate Attack!
    And I take his ulti at level 6. Its a gr8 skill for him!
    Luv this guy!

  14. @glennlevi - Thanks for the update, i already know but just doesn't have the time ^^ Thanks again :) Just updated it.

  15. Wow, this character is so good. I killed alot because of his ulti! Plus, urna swarm is better than that ion shell beetle to look out. I use urna swarm to see if there was any1 roshaning. And kunkka was... LOL. Plus, the urna swarm does dmg and helps u take a look out. So it is better than the ion shell watcher beetle... -_-'

  16. Weaver is my favorite hero. Been playing for 4 years. Such a good harasser. Hit, double hit, invis, run through, hit, double hit, swarm, hit, time lapse, run hit. good fun

  17. yeah this hero is my best pick.....I build his first skill in level one for a free ward and it's pretty imba enemy hates this hero as a foe

  18. wait so certain orbs work on her?

  19. Items:
    5)Hex or Shiva's guard...
    6)Another Hot or Buriza...

  20. wat is the build of anubseran skill??

  21. xD the item build is really good but there is an easier way to kill weaver

    Use BYGON

  22. geminate lv1
    Shukuchi lv2
    geminate lv3
    swarm lv4
