Ice Blast
Ancient Apparition projects his presence out to make way for a powerful ripple of hailstone and dark magic. Once cast, it can release the spell to strike targets within 200 area of where his presence was upon release. It will deal damage to enemy units and apply a frostbite curse on them for 7 seconds where their health regeneration will be frozen and will shatter if they fall close enough to death. This spell has global range depending on how long you wait for the projections to move. Frostbitten units will take minor damage over time.

Justification

Cold Feet is taken early for obvious reason. Combined with a stun/slow, your enemies will likely captured frozen. This skills also can be used to get First Blood. Ice Vortex is the next skill as it synergies well with Cold Feet. The slow is very useful to ensure your Cold Feet success, not to mention the magic resistance reduce.

Ice Blast is taken whenever you can. It's one of the best global nukes, you will likely need some time though to be able to cast it on target. Chilling Touch is taken last because it more useful in a team fight which happen on mid-late game.

  1. Chilling Touch is imba with burst attacking skills such as Phantom Strike, Overpower and Troll's ulti.

    Cold Feet + Ice Vortex + (insert disable skill) = 100% death for the target... That's more than 5 seconds of disable, slow and increased magical damage.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Not a das idead for a hero, has nice ganking capabilities. Hope hes not that imba, as we all know that icy ALWAYS makes them way too powerful on their first appearance

    ReplyDelete
  7. nice skills, they support each other, this one would be a great ganker.. also its ulti can be use to explore maps and kill enemies who got away with low hp, it only has 20 sec cooldown at lvl3.. i think this hero will be nerf at the next versions

    ReplyDelete

  10. REYAL VERDICT


    SURVIVABILITY-19%
    of course even you know skillful he is so eeeasy to kill (if u have traxex hehe)
    IMBANESS-23%
    very independent with items and cool stuff w/ ginsoo u know
    SKILLFULNESS-14%
    slow and stun make u cry perfect!!!!!!!
    MOBILITY-6%
    runs? w/ his stun the enemy will not get through

    TOTAL=52/100 NOT BAD

    ReplyDelete
  11. Why do you take so many items for mana? Guinsoo and shiva i think a bit unnecessary here, but... Intelligence give more damage, effects can be useful. Vexed question

    About kill order, I agree, but VOrtex must be earlier than Touch, because you must decrease move speed.

    If you stand with partner with stun, or any disable (Shaman's net, or Murlock chain, or Seer's Vortex) First blood can be on 3 level

    ReplyDelete
  12. his ulti is so gay..with bad timing it goes to waste...1st u cast his ulti then the ice thingy goes straight in a line then the hard part is to activate it near the enemy..there is a high chance it would miss greatly though...so it is gay

    ReplyDelete
  13. his ulti is useful in clearing up huge creep waves in other lanes, extra gold for Kaldr :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. tip for using his ulti,, instead of timing it looking at the enemy, just look at the minimap specially when the enemy is far away, its easier to land it that way because you can see the skill move so you can time your skill.. timing is very important,, with that 20 sec cooldown his ulti will surely be handy at clash points.. PT and LS will be the core build of this hero for mana regen and hp

    ReplyDelete
  15. 1. Best item for this crap is SKADI and DAGON. No need to explain, it is too obvious.
    2. Main role as a Supporter. why? because of its 3rd skill.
    3. Imba? OMG, it can slows and FREEZES for 3.5s. NO, enemies with boots can easily run from the curse that's why we need skadi.
    4. U might say this to me "SRY UR A NOOB, ITS ULTI IS WAY TOO COOL." Lolz, who will hit by it? only -> noobs.

    Conclusion: Words from Crystal Maiden: You think u can beat me?? LOLZ, sry you'r a failure.

    Rating: 3/10 , WEAKASS.

    IF YOU CLAIM THAT I"M WRONG POST HERE. I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. HOHOHO, MERRY CHRISTMAS TOO. :P

    DOTA PRO FROM NOWHERE

    ReplyDelete
  16. agreed with above..only noob cannot evade this shitty kinda look alike hero ulti...but i hv to agree for anonymous X2 above..his ulti is easier to use at long range..but how can u noe where that low life hero went after low health?if i have a low health i would roam in jungle n buy healing pot using chiken..so yes this shitty hero should be implemented more so that it would be reckognize by other..WARNING!! DO NOT EVEN TRY THIS HERO IF U SUCK OR NEWBIE

    ReplyDelete
  17. Such noobs comments above.
    Anyway this hero is cool, make a dual lane with a stunner, something like sven, leoric, ursa and its pure fun.
    This is a teamplay hero, and a great one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. only noobs cannot avoid his ulti? are you fucking stupids? ever think about teamplay? like having magnus or treant? it depends on tactics of the team, this hero ain't a solo type hero, it's a teamplayer for buffing and ganking, so even if his ulti misses theres a lot to come more because of that 20sec cooldown, he could even explore maps with his ulti and if the user has quick reflexes, he could use it at farms of the enemy..

    just put it this way, if you see this icy of about 1k hp hero charging on you it has an ally nearby to kill you

    ReplyDelete
  19. oh and by the way, this hero would not need skadi, it would prefer guinsoo, if you ask the reason you are the fucking noob but i'd tell it anyway so that the enemy would not move, cold feet then guinsoo then use the other skills then attack.. the enemy is disabled for about 8sec

    ReplyDelete
  20. that dota pro from nowhere is another jerk claiming that he is pro... all heroes are imba in the hands of true pro players

    ReplyDelete
  21. above i a real noob.."all heroes are imba in the hands of true pro players playing with noob"..all heroes are balance,no imba....

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ above try to think, that is what he meant, all heroes are balance but some say they are imba because of pro players.. so in short heoes become imba because of hardknock pro players..

    kaldr has very low hp, so easy to kill... this hero needs a lane buddy always for early game survivavility and to land a kill, a slower or stuner would be preferable..

    ReplyDelete
  23. nevermore + enigma + atropos + kaldr = a bunch of ghost looking hero that would kill you.. hope there would be a fire type next time..

    ReplyDelete
  24. good support hero..... cool skills .... fun to play....
    @the dota pro from nowhere : u have no clue hou effective he can be with the right support.... so shut up!!!!!
    and hex way better than skadi for him
    o i would go shiva's guard for him

    ReplyDelete
  25. depending on which heroes you're facing, this is what i prefer...

    Mekanism -THIS IS A MUST!!!-
    Treads(Intelligence)*this helps alot*
    Guinsoo's
    Heart/BKB (which ever one works best depending on what heroes you're facing)
    Dagon (ONLY GET THIS IF YOU'RE FACING FRAGILE HEROES)
    Shiva's

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey guys..
    His ulty is NOT VISIBLE BY ENEMIES!!!
    Why its so easy to avoid???
    Its easier than miranas arrow and pudges hook but u propably suck at both or dont know how to use it..
    Also his skillset is just imba..he has nukes,stuns,aoe slow amplify magic dmg,aoe increase ally dmg,a global aoe ulty that scales perfect on lategame cause of 12%hp = dead ,great farming skill(ulty),and his skills have very low manacost for what they do..
    Anyway enjoy him till 6.66 he will be nerfed 100%

    ReplyDelete
  27. A tip for the ulty when in a teamclash.
    Dont use it as a finishing spell but rather on the start of the fight so the first player will die fast.then you can use it again of you survive the next 20s to finish the remain heroes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. so what's the verdict? who is better rylai or this one?

    p.s. i know it will depend on the player so don't take that as a reason on judgement..

    both have low hp
    both are int type
    both are support heroes
    both can be gankers

    whats ur idea? who is better?

    ReplyDelete
  29. i think rylai is better cause of his aura.. regen for everyone.. although the new hero's ulti is cool to use.. and rylai's frost bite is instant so you'll never know what will hit you.. so if you are ganking a blink type hero he can easily blink and get away. unlike crystal maiden's ice and its up to her team mates to kill.. and so on..

    ReplyDelete
  30. rylai is way more cooler than this hero if in a teamfight..disabler,slower,mana regen in a fight,ulti that can really OMG FUCK U DIE.... but this new guy is also got his own potential..his third skills really help A LOT in a team clash.. make his ulti invisible be4 it hit the enemy..that would be more cooler..gotta say..his ulti can be avoidable..unless u got stunner or disabler in ur team..i hope ice would make his ulti invi n cannot be seen by his enemy though..

    ReplyDelete
  31. gaslo yu!

    bloodstone and threads and skadi will give you BGL
    (beyond Godlike!) Lols

    ReplyDelete
  32. There are no imba heroes. Only imba players/

    ReplyDelete
  33. i much more perfer lich king as my ice heroes. its meaningless that the developer make another ice type heroes,we already got 2 rylai and lich.they should make other element heroes.

    ReplyDelete
  34. i think this hero will be a great ganker....^_^....

    ReplyDelete
  35. pls add a fire type hero.. i think only lina and batrider are flame type heroes so add one more to make 3 ice and 3 fire

    ReplyDelete
  36. clinkz is fire. best orb in game (especially free)

    ReplyDelete
  37. they got 3 earth already, TC, ES, tiny kind of. they have for wind, windrunner is all i can think of. maybe add more wind. a melee wind type would be cool maybe have him carry a sword and have his attacks act like luna's glaive bounce instead of a cleave.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Power treads (int)
    Eye of Skady
    Manta Style
    Mjolnir
    Guinzo Scythe of Vyce
    Heart of Tarrasquee

    .. Nice ? :P ^^

    My build ... join !! xD

  40. shut up newbies! blink dagger guinsoo shiva da best! pipe too

    ReplyDelete
  41. the best for getting owned badly haha. retard.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This guy is soooo fun to use. 1st skill, hex, 2nd skill, T (ulti), shiva (make sure you do it quickly after pressing T so your target will have a hard time getting away from your ulti), T again (to make the ulti explode), 3rd skill, attack = most probably dead. You might not even need the last two. Also in whole team clashes, if there are alot of aoe damagers/stunners in your team and you time your ulti right it's usually easy to get double/triple kills.

    ReplyDelete
  43. woah!!! your build is good, but i suggest you take the mid lane...... as you can see the bot or top lane there, use the ice blast for KILL STEALING action.... HAHAHAH!!!
    It's very funny actually when you use the ulti for kill stealin, hahaha...

    ReplyDelete
  44. cold feet + pounce + dark pact + ice vortex + chilling touch = 1 dead hero saying that two heroes are so imba

    haha ouch

    ReplyDelete
  45. This guy has a good agi gain but low str gain, so he needs some survival item, maybe some bracers + guinso or with a better farm, linken + guinso. i think guinso is a must becouse his disable/slow is not enough, and skadi is too expansive for what it gives. Mekanism or hood/pipe are optional for situations but thinking he's a supporter, so these items would be nice too.

    Also becouse of his nice agi gain he can be a good damage dealer int. with his supportive 3rd skill. Not as good as silencer but his nukes, slow and a little disable makes him even. So guinso is a must again, also shiva is some supportive some survival, good for him.

    so, as summary, first survive with your dota skills or boosting hp with items, provide some regen for your skills and farming, then go for a guinso, next use your imagination for a better synergy of items and skills...

  46. kaldr's ulti is IMBA its like culling blade but aoe XD

    ReplyDelete
  47. Don't be IDIOT.....This hero is IMBA if u know how to use it...but i must say ur hero is always IMBA when u know how to use IT!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. thats right.. all heroes are balance, but they become imba when you are just ownage.. most people complain because they play not as a team but as an individual,, well guess what, dota is all about teamplay, with a killer a tank and support,, everyone has a role,, just play your role and have a teamplay and most rpobably you'l win

    ReplyDelete
  49. pro players don't think that they should always be HOLY sHIT!!! they think to win, to have a smooth play, that their line up is perfect for a gank, clash and support heroes.. this is where you would see how helpless other heroes are and how strong others could get,, so stop complaining about imba heroes,, the only imba in dota are the players..

    ReplyDelete
  50. So far I've been going linkens with this hero so he has good regen and a bit of survivability. I would go sheep next but the game usually ends because he is such a good team player and we can catch strays with my ulti. I tried dagon but I would only use it on fragilies.

    Big nerf for this hero soon, lots of fun to play.

    ReplyDelete
  51. y u all always say about imba?was ursa imba?

    ReplyDelete
  52. this guy is insane...
    he can nuke a hero at roughly 35% of his health...
    on an average lets assume a hero's max health = 2k at roughly
    so he is at say 800.
    his ulti at 16 is like 450dmg. so he's down to 350.
    now his health regen is frozen.
    plus he takes about 20dps over 8 secs = 160dmg.
    so he's down to 190. thats below the shatter threshold. so boom.
    the threshold would be 0.12*2k roughly. thats 240 health.
    even if u factor in some MDR, this guy can globally nuke and lane control and farm.
    haven seen a nuker/ganker/lane-control like this O_O

    ReplyDelete
  53. pls add a hero that is of fighting type

    ReplyDelete
  54. it's ulti is strong there's something writen there that its aoe increaces the further it goes!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. guinsoo + shiva = really slow.

    shiva > vortex > attack > guinsoo > attack > cold feet > vortex > kill

    you dont need alot of his ulti unless you really wanna control a whole lane or kill some invi who got away.

    p.s. this guy is gonna get nerfed and slark's gonna get buffed in the next version. im 80% sure.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really still haven't get yet what purpose of his ult. Someone can explain this to me? Like how does the 2nd cast work?

    -Thanks b4 and I beg your pardon for my bad english ^^a

    ReplyDelete
  57. threads (int) or BOT

    dagon 5

  58. I came up with a hero for 6.65c, it will be freaking MOB killer!!! But I'll still need to work on his Ulti thou...

    This Hero will be a perfect team for Kaldr :D


    -BadFrog-

    ReplyDelete
  59. ice blast, it can be casted at any place and it will travel on a straight pattern, if you can't keep up with its speed just look at the minimap, when it is at the place where you want it to explode just use press the ulti and boom..
    needs timing and maybe a bit of luck,, can be used to explore maps and spam creeps way far from you..

    its like and aoe culling blade,

    ReplyDelete
  60. are these heroes even gonna last long? cause they are not included in CM mode,, im thinking like in the next versions either they will be remove together with the santa hats or remade because they are not included in CM mode for serious games


    i also got shocked at seeing a techies courier, it really looks cute.. wish there would be a blink skill for the couriers

    ReplyDelete
  61. in early game he can easily rape almost all int agi heroes without boots

    but in midgame and lategame he is only supporter especially when the enemies have heroes like riki trax morty or evil pudge axe skeleton tanks

    other int heroes like obsidian windrunner or lina can own him easy too

    so he is not that imba, it depens on what the enemy pick and whats in your team

    he is quite good with any kind of disabler but can easily be a victim and he need expensive items but not the time for farming soo long cause he is supporter and/or ganker

    i like the other new hero nightcrawler more

    ReplyDelete
  62. how the heck are all of you people getting those items? 120 minute games? non stop farming? or just fucking em players? I thought this hero was a support?
    CM vs AA - both are useful, completely situational. CM's survivalbility is shit low, and you can still use skills when frozen. Try combining the two (double roaming)
    The ulti is damn easy to use and if you cant get it right either you have a really crazy lag or you really dont know hot to play. And are we forgetting the instant kill? His ulti causes heroes to die instantly if heroes hp drops below a certain percentage, within 7(imba) seconds after hit. Are we forgetting the magic resistant decrease? How fast do you think teams fall with those skills around in a nuke fest?
    Guinsoo? Good luck farming that. You'll be ganking too much to get that item. If playing good, get a diffusal blade. (If you dont get the logic go die). If team is doing not that great get mek and supports. In a good team gameplay should take 30 minutes to break the throne

    ReplyDelete
  63. yea he is pure support dunno how you would get guinsoo's first on him so he'll have like 1300 mana and about 600 hp...yea anyone w/ burst dmg = gg...support build should be urn/mech/travs/shivas he's so item independent that it shouldn't matter since you're playing support you'll always rely on someone else after early/mid game

    ReplyDelete
  64. 1 vs 1 with melee,he still can use ice blast...Just played by pro player this hero is so IMBA

    ReplyDelete
  65. imba imba and imba
    bunch of noob just complain
    every hero imba if
    pro plays it

    ReplyDelete
  66. try getting this items 1st before thinking about guinsoo or even skadi

    linkhen
    mekansm
    PT (str or int)

    but often times when your build is like this its already GG

  69. I love this hero. much more imba on late game as long as you can really utilize his skills to the max. killed 3 hitters that were coming at me =)
    here are the items that use for this hero:

    Phase boots - I prefer this than treads. I can get away safely from hitters chasing me with the active +movement speed and Kaldr's first 2skills

    Blood stone - for more mana and health and regen. Once I get this I never run out mana and I can start spamming Kaldr's last skill.

    Vanguard(optional) - I always start with stout shield in the beginning of the game then sell it or go to vanguard depending on the flow of the game.

    Shiva's guard - +armor +int and an aeo slow and damage. a must have. together with vanguard you can survive more :)

    Guinsoo - now this one I really love. The reason why I can take on 2 or more heroes at once and get double, triple kills. works well together with shiva's guard <3

    Ghost scepter(optional) - for hitters >:D

    Heart of Tarrasque(optional) - can replace vanguard end game, but I rarely use it.

    Blade Mail(only with Heart of Tarrasque) - same reason for Ghost Scepter =)

    Skadi(optional) - I haven't tried it yet. Situations in games I played using Kaldr doesn't allow me to get this item xD

    Dagon(optional) - 3rd skill + 2nd skill + dagon = OUCH xD I tried this at first but stopped getting it when I really got to use Kaldr more efficiently. Plus Im much more of a support than a last hitter :))

    Malevolence(optional) - I haven't experimented with this one yet, same reason with Skadi. But I bet this will work beautifully.

    Anyway these are the items that I can think of. It's all with the player anyway. The first 5 items I listed are must haves for me =)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Guinsoo would be good .. or Scepter ..

    Suggestion :
    item build-up:

    Guinsoo
    Scepter (optional)
    Heart of Tarasque
    Boots of Travel
    Cuirass (optional)
    Dagger (optional)

    plss.. do not TANK on clashing .. or just GANK or HUNT ..

    DO NOT go alone .. you must kill w/ other allied heroes .. w/ stun or silence .. or slow..

    ReplyDelete
  71. i just do:

    2x nulls
    power tread int
    lothar edge
    manta style
    buriza
    dominator>satanic
    guinzo/mkb


    pure ganking and late game ownage
    this works preety well because of low mana required from skills, his high mana reg and the fact he hits extreamly fast
    if you hit lvl 6 early you will have a huge advantage

    try it if you dont belive me this is the best build

    ReplyDelete
  72. first i got this hero on -arnp mode
    i dont really like int baseed hero
    but got it match for me
    guinsoo + shiva + pt boot str type
    got 10 to 20 kill every game
    i bet this hero got nerf next patch
    ulti cooldown really fast n less mana???
    consider it global and effect
    (regen stop+minor damage+shatter???? )
    one imba hero for sure

    ReplyDelete
  73. nice for ganking (all skill)
    nice for pushing (all skill)
    nice for defend (ulti)
    nice for farming (ulti)

  78. The guy is really cool but you must be really mad to make guinsoo. Don't make Guinsoo.
    I Take (not in order - whenever and however you have the money)

    Urn of Shadows (If needed)
    PT Intell
    Orchid (Veeery nice with the slow and makes great support)
    Shiva - survivability and more support +dmg

    While other heroes like Lich can make it 1 vs many This dude here is god damn good if he has an ally around him. Just stay back, try not to die, make your spells whenever you can, because they don't need much mana and with that build you've got it, and he's a bomb. You don't need Guinsoo. Too expensive for nothing. He's a SUPPORT - make a lil survivabilty like Shiva and SUPPORT spells - to build up what he already has.

    SMTHG else: If in early game some1 leaves from the other team, at lv 11 or upper, make icy touch on urself and spam at the base ulty. It does enoguh dmg to kill it 1 strike but even if it doesn't you can still make another ulty (low CD) before the team realises. +245 gold yay!

    (Won't work if they locked their heroes)

  79. WORDS TO THE GUY AT MY TOP:

    1. it is better for you to get guinsoo if you can make an orchid. their prices r almost the same.
    2. your build leak of hitpoint.
    3. he's not a boom. he's a sniper.

    Compare CM to him, CM is a winner.

    ReplyDelete
  80. agree on top
    with orchid?
    youll get killed by melee hero

    guinsoos the best for kaldr

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well, look at this hero strategically. You need a guinsoo to complete your kill.

    The combo is as follows:
    Cold feet
    Then directly cast sheep (Guinsoo)
    Do ice vortex and ulti target while still frozen from cold feet.
    Use shivas if needed and cast demons if he has lothars to reveal invis.

    (if you can micro well cast mana burn and attack with demons as part of this combo.

    Then use slow and finish him off with attacks/dagon.

    Item build

    Treads (int)
    Guinsoo
    Dagon
    Shivas
    Lothars for escaping
    Necro 3
    (good str gain and sentry for invis heroes.)

    Will take practice try soloing to not fight for last hits. Rush guinsoo's and start raping!

  88. Hex

    if you make him desolator, monkey or buriza, he will be a good damage dealer.... also we can make skadi.

    2nd skill + skadi + shiva + hex= ohh I can't move! =]

    ReplyDelete
  89. for everyone who's said his ulti can only hit noobs and that he's crap:
    make sure you stay close to rune when fighting and have vortex under the enemy, when he freezes, just go back a bit and use ulti while he's frozen and under vortex - low levels hero is screwed if not use shiva or dagon
    and at long range his ulti is impossible to avoid as it has massive aoe and is rapid, if you cant hit its not cuz he's bad, its cuz youre crap

    ReplyDelete
  90. for me,radiance!!!!his 1st skill is dmg over time + radiance ,while chasing got extra damage,and shatter them with ulti!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think 1st item build for kaldr is dagon. phase boots are also necessary for him. beacause the use of dagon will help him kill enemies not to mention the effect of ice vortex.

    want proof? i got a rampage in garena using kaldr with dagon, phase boots, shiva and regeneration items as an item build for kaldr.

  93. cool hero.my item build:

    i start with: bracer+tango
    and end up with:

    bracer
    pt(i switch type depending on the situation)
    linken(perse first then ulti orb)
    lothars

    my optional items are:

    guinsoo( i disassemble perse and get mystic staff)
    yules (extra disable although don't try casting cf before cyclone. the freeze effect still triggers but the damage overtime seems to be negated based on my observation)
    hood of defiance

    game usually ends before i get linkens though.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Guys! When u go 1 on 1 wit a hero, this is the combo!
    Most probably the opp hero will come to kill u, so cast 1st skill, then slow,then dagon,and then when he is frozen, finish of in style wit his ulti! This will kill the opp hero 99%! Use dagon only after putting ur slow since the damage will be amplifed!

    After getting a skadi ur opp hero is frozen for sure! No escape! 100% sure!

  99. the real is you just have to put cold feet and ice vortex with dagon in your inventory you can first blood your enemy here's how it is done

    first put a ice vortex
    then cold feet your enemy when
    yourenemy is frozen you can attack it with dagon
    and a little life will remain on your enemy
    just attack it normally with your normal attack
    then you just hear FIRST BLOOD!!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. For me... Id Rather Suggest....
    If You Picked Ancient Apparition "Kaldr"
    and you have a Team mate Murloc NightCrawler "Slark" or The Butcher "Pudge" better if Slark will attack the enemy with its "POUNCE" or pudge will hook its enemy and Apparition will attack with Cold Feet+Normal Attack.

    You Must Have Power Threads "INT TYPE (THE BLUE ONES)" then BUCKLER or HEADRESS REJ. or MEKANISM then RING OF BASILIUS for your NORMAL ATTACK to be POWERFUL. IF YOU WANT.. ADD BLADES OF ATTACK...

    WHEN YOU PLAY 5v5 then your Starting Money is 800+ or 600+ first.. buy ROBE OF MAGI (DONT BUY BELT OF GIANT STRENGTH coz its STRENGTH AND KALDR IS INT.) then kill some creeps or preferred HERO for FAST MONEY then Buy Boots of Speed FOR FASTER MOVEMENT SPEED or GLOVES OF HASTE FOR FASTER CASTING OF NORMAL ATTACKS but I PREFERRED BOOTS OF SPEED FOR SOME INCIDENTS... BOOTS OF SPEED CAN INCREASE KALDR MOVEMENT SPEED UPTO 345 AND THAT IS NEEDED WHEN SOMEONE STUN'S YOU AND YOUR HP IS LOW AND YOU CAN RUN... THEN WHEN WHEN YOU GOT MONEY BUY GOH=GLOVES OF HASTE...

    WHEN YOU GOT 603 PREFERRED TO BUY HEADRESS REJ. then when you got 803 buy BUCKLER then MEKANISM SCROLL FOR 900.. AFTER THAT... SAVE MONEY FOR OBLIVION STAFF... FIRST BUY ROBE OF MAGI +6 INT.. THEN QUARTER STAFF for +10 DAMAGE then SOBI MASK... after that... save money again for PERSEVERANCE THEN CRYSTALYS then SAVE MONEY FOR GUINSOO or SHIVAS then SAVE AGAIN FOR GUINSOO or SHIVAS... WHEN YOU ALREADY HAVE GUINSOO then BUY SHIVAS FOR THE LAST INV. SPACE or if YOU hAVE ALREADY SHIVAS then BUY GUINSOO for the LAST INV. SPACE

    For Me... I Use

    Power Treads-Int. The Blue Ones= +INT
    Mekanism-THIS IS USED WHEN U GOT LOW HP TO REGEN
    OBLIVION STAFF-THIS IS USED FOR + DAMAGE
    PERSEVERANCE-HEALTH
    SHIVAS- + ARMOR
    GUINSOO- +INT. and DAMAGE

  111. A misunderstood hero By a Lot of players

    He is weak against stunners,slows and strength heroes, But he is terror early game for melee,low Hp heroes
    -Work towards level ups and kills early game
    -Items by mid game in order
    **
    Sobi mask,Tango,
    VoidStone,
    Boots,
    Treads(int),
    Aghinam Scepter
    staff of wizardly
    Eul's scepter( disable/escape item/speed increase)
    **
    Make sure you maintain distance from strength heros, stunners, slows and stop moving alone by the end of mid game,be careful while killing low hp heroes,always tag along a stunner or tank,keep nuking with ice blast and get your Ice Blast to level 3 by end of mid game

    -Once u get ice blast lvl 3, stay close to towers and base and disband enemy groups, clean swipe pushes, help your team but from distance
    at this stage you can control all 3 lanes single handed- its an aggressive support mode in end game

    If u wish to participate in ganks, Make lothars 1st and then guinsoo and mech

    -start with Ice blast end with ice blast
    -You dont chase,instead u make them run for life if you have learned well to nuke with ICE BLAST
    -practice ice blasting..
    -Watch mini map after launch and screen just when about to hit
    -Try targeting hero around creeps so that you get creep gold
    -If ur trail misses before blasting or if hero as moved far away from trail path,, try going for neutrals and blast there rather it going for complete waste

    This hero has more room for experimentation..

  112. The 2nd and 3rd skill is useless in early game

    Cold Feet
    stats
    Cold Feet
    stats
    Cold Feet
    Ulti

    Max them all out, then max the 2nd skill. After that, the 3rd

    ReplyDelete
  113. Here is a real killing combo

    Put Ice Vortex at least at the back of the enemy to slow him down and force to fight.

    Then Cold Feet so he takes extra damage because of the effect of Ice Vortex
    then Chilling Touch between you and the enemy so you gain attack damage.

    If the enemy is standing still….

    go for the ultimate

    dont worry ancient have plenty of mana..

    Here is my bulid:

    Orchid Malevo.
    Bloodstone
    Power Threads(Depends)
    that is core items only

    Then go for the Skadi
    Guinsoo

  114. well, Kaldr is a very situational hero, depending on your team, he can be a supporter or even a killer if you want to (but obviously not a tanker though)

    1)Supporter way
    This way is for those that like to play Kaldr in a passive way (supporting)
    generally his item build will be:
    1)BoT (must to have)
    2)Guinso
    3)Shiva
    4)Eul
    The rest is anything you want (as long is not dagon)
    Why Eul if you have guinso? Guinso is for helping landing his ultimate, while eul is for his cold feet. Cast cold feet+ice vortex then eul = frozen solid (except those with blink abilities) guinso is used when you want to cast your ulti so guinso+ulti = 80% chances the attack will hit.

    2)Carry path
    Well this is where Kaldr becomes aggresive, He's like an Int Nevermore, extremely dangerous at early-mid games, so yes you do have to gank and kill ALOT
    his Item build will be:
    1)Dagon (no this is not a joke, you must have it)
    2)Skadi
    3)PT (not BoT)
    4)Shiva/cuirass ( up to you, I prefer cuirass though)
    5)MKB
    6)BKB
    NOTE: playing as carry Kaldr is VERY" situational, If you HAVE team that has good initiator AND AoE disablers.
    Playing aggresive Kaldr is also only for those confident enough in casting ulti and cold feet without the use of guinso

  115. item guide: power threads, orchid staff, shivas guard, eye of skadi or radiance, buriza dokyanon, heart of tarasque or vanguard/khadgars pipe.

  116. Kaldr is easy to kill if facing with Morphling in early . . . but it's good to use kaldr when the enemy have abadon, why? because if he cast ice blast, even borrowed time can,t refill abadons hp (it's work for disabled Purist healing, Bloodseekers bloodbath, Huskar regen too)

    And With his cold feet skill, it will easy to slain roshan in early games . . . cause roshan will frozen (cold feet will erase roshans linken and frozen him)

    ReplyDelete
  117. i didn't agree with people say that only noobs will hited by Kaldr ice blast . . . when war, it have a big chance to hit (+ if there is faceless Void in team) even pro can't escape if he caught by crnosphere . . . Lol

    but it's easy to avoid ice blast . . . use gem . . . and you will see where kaldr targeted his ice blast . . . just move a centimeter and ^^ it miss

    ReplyDelete
  124. well, kaldr is a rather rare type of hero, in my opnion. he has two long range skill, the slow thingy and his ulti. so i think its best that he stays back when huge team battle. finish his guinsoo first in case of emergency. i put in kelen too. i know hes not the chaser type, but he do have the ability to cast slow in a fron a far place, so in case of a low-hp hero running from battle, he can walk in the jungle and blink past the fleeing hero, but dont show up within his sight; estimate his move and cast a slow spell. since its a big aoe spell, itll take the enemy hero a while to get out, from there , itll be ur choice whether to freeze him or guisoo.. but just stay in the dark so u wont be targeted,, let team killer kill the fleeing hero.

    ReplyDelete
  125. hmm guys , AA is awesome hero although he isnt imba but he can kill easily. like jznw got some1 said only NOOBs will kena his ulti ,i strongly disargee cause when u are low hp n running back to ur fountain,would you relly focus sumthing(AA ulti )have fly towards you? secondly when level 6 i can be the starter hero ,just throw an ulti to enemy n my teamate can kill them easily ( my teamate :Sk , sven .. lina n skilller )

    I played AA like this
    Cold feet
    Stat
    cold feet
    stat
    cold feet
    ulti
    cold feet
    stat
    den only vortex
    ( i need to be with a stunner or slower teamate ofcause )

    My build :
    phase boots
    perseverance
    dagon
    then linken or guisoo or cyclone ( depends)

    skadi isnt improtant for him cause he cant solo farming for too long cause alot of killer will find for him. and he cant farm till tht fat .

    any way isit a right choice playing like this?
    can some AA pro guide me =) thanks

  128. Check out my strategy,

    For Lane killing [example in mid, but make sure you can kill the enemy in a nuke type attack]

    Cast Ice vortex, after the cooldown, cast again, the first vortex is still in there so it will become to slow, Cast cold feet [no need for skadi or guinsoo if cold feet is cast with imba timing]

    Hit it as long as you can, after that cast a dagon. Your enemy's life will go low [if the enemy has still no imba item or imba resistance] after that cast you ulti, the nearer the better. Why? you can just press the shortcut key of the ulti as fast as you can [if it is only near you, if it is in distance, timing will be meaningful]This hero will become more imba if you will keep the gap of your level higher than your enemies so i prefer it solo because if you have bottle and a crow, spam your vortex. Hope this helps. zZzZ *-*

  129. THIS IS A VERY NOOB SKILL GUIDE.

    This is The Way Apparation should be played.

    lvl 1 - cold fleetlvl-2-stats
    lvl-3-cold fleet
    lvl-4-stats
    lvl-5-cold fleet
    lvl-6-SS
    lvl-7-cold fleet and so on..

    The reason you should get Stats instead of the Ice Vortex is...
    It will give you a HUGEEEEEEE laning mid advantage.
    and will give you additional stats to cast cold fleet all the time.
    attack speed , damage and str is needed as well.
    as you may notice. apparation is not that kind of an AS hero.
    but with the use of Cold Fleet's Stun. a Battle apparation is not such a bad idea. but ofcourse. you will need dagon to ..
    VORTEX + COLD FLEET + SS + DAGON = 1hit COMBO
