DotA Tuskarr: Ymir The Tuskarr Guide, Strategy & Build. Ymir is a Strength hero which added to the Sentinel in DotA 6.70. This post will provide you with the Tuskarr Skill Description, the Tuskarr Guide, the Tuskarr Strategy, the Tuskarr Item Build and the Ymir the Tuskarr Skill Build. If you play Dota 2, check Dota 2 Tusk Guide!

Hailing from the Borean Tundra, Ymir is one of the wisest Tuskarr warriors. Acquainted with years of warfare experience against raiding Ice Trolls and Nerubian Spiders that beset his village during his younger years, Ymir eagerly volunteered himself into the ranks of the Sentinel to help halt the notorious rise of the Lich King. A specialist in controlling the element of ice, Ymir's prowess lies in surprising enemies with frosty magics. His arsenal not only consists of propelling Snowballs and hurling shards of solidifying ice, but also conjuring massive Snowstorms that greatly impede his enemies' battle efficiency.



Alliance: Sentinel

Strength: 23 + 2.3 (primary)
Agility: 23 + 2.1
Intelligence: 18 + 1.7

Base Damage: 50-54
Starting Armor: 3
Movement Speed: 305

Ymir the Tuskarr Skill Descriptions

Ice Shards

Tuskarr compresses 5 shards of ice into a ball of frozen energy that damages all enemies in comes in contact with. If the ball comes in contact with an enemy hero or reaches its maximum range the shards are released, creating a barrier that lasts for 5 seconds.

Travel AOE: 200
Cast Range: 1500

Damage: 70/140/210/280
Shards Duration: 5

Manacost: 120
Cooldown: 18/16/14/12

Note: Shards block path

Has quite damage, but the ability to block the path is the most useful one. The range is high and allow you to harass from far away.

Snowball

Tuskarr and any nearby allied heroes roll in a quickly growing snowball towards the target enemy unit. Any victims caught in the snowball's path take damage and are briefly stunned; the final target takes 40 extra damage and 0.25 extra stun duration.

The snowball moves at the relative move speed of the heroes within.

Damage: 40/80/120/160 ( +40 each level on the final target)
Stun Duration: 0.25/0.5/0.75/1.0 ( +0.25 each level on the final target)

AOE: 200 + 40 per second

Target Cast Range: 1250
Manacost: 75
Cooldown: 40

Note: Snowball stops traveling after 3.25 seconds. Can destroy trees and cross cliffs. Must target an enemy, cant target ally or ground.

A unique skill which maybe fit the best for the Christmas. Have a really long target range. A nice skill to initiate a gank.

Frozen Sigil

Tuskarr summons a Frozen Sigil by calling upon the deepest cold of winter. The Sigil creates a snowstorm which slows all enemy units within 600 range.


MS Slow: 10/15/20/25%
AS Slow: 30/40/50/60%

Movement Speed: 310 (Flying Unit)
Sigil HP: 300 (same as pugna's ward)
Bounty: 90/100/110/120

Duration: 30
Cooldown: 50
Manacost: 75

Note: Spawns infront of him and automatically follow tuskarr when no order given to it.

A really useful skill for team battle. Will slow down the enemies on the area targeted.

Ymir the Tuskarr Ultimate

Walrus Punch

Tuskarr prepares his mighty Walrus Punch; his next attack will do a critical strike and launch the victim into the air. The victim will be slowed upon landing and take damage.


Critical Strike: 2.5x (4x if the target is below 50% hp) (physical damage)
Landing Damage: 75/150/225 (magical damage)
Landing Slow: 40%
Landing Slow Duration: 2/3/4 seconds

Cooldown: 18/16/14
Manacost: 50/75/100

note: Walrus punch will end if you dont hit a target in 10 second

A cool move which a little similar to Tiny's Toss. It deals lots of damage, especially to the below 50% HP enemies.

3. Ice Shard
4. Snowball
5. Ice Shard
6. Walrus Punch

9. Snowball

11. Walrus Punch
12-14. Frozen Sigil
15. Stats
16. Walrus Punch
17-25. Stats

Snowball is for early ganking while Ice Shard is for your main nuke. Walrus always taken whenever without any question. Maximize Snowball and then Frozen Sigil. Sigil will be useful for team clash which usually happen on mid-late game, hence taken start on level 10.

Ymir the Tuskarr Item Build
1. Sobi mask, Gauntlets of Strength, and Tango
2. Finish Urn of Shadow
3. Boots of speed
4. Empty Bottle
5. Finish Power Tread
6. Bracer and finish Janggo of Endurance

Tuskarr's core item should be like this:


Urn of Shadow - It will be first to picked up cause you already have 2 of its components on your item slots. Gives you HP, damage, and mana regeneration which you need on early game.

Bottle - is the best source of regen on Tuskarr. Especially his lack of mana. Because he's a ganker and he will badly need a fast replenish item. One slot, 600 gold, fast regen (both HP and Mana), and a measure against mana burners, makes bottle more effective and cost-efficient than other early regen items.

Power Tread - Provide you with stats and damage as well. and ofcourse some good additional AS.

Janggo of Endurance - It has aura of AS and MS. its endurance can add more of AS and MS to your team. Perfect for gangking. Use it after your snowball hit your target. Its aura will be more useful if you gank with your teammates.

Preseverence - Solve the mana problem and can be upgraded to BFury.

Orb of Venom - Optional item. Get this item if you have a hard times chasing your enemies. Useful on early game when your sigil's level still low.

Vladimir's Offering - also optional item. You can get this item if you have a more melee hero in your team and your teammates dont intend to make it. Has a good support auras (lifesteal, damage, armor, and mana regeneration).


Here is core late game item for him:


Luxury late game items:


Battlefury - Additional damage and HP/Mana regeneration. It's ability to cleave is just a bonus for easy farming cause your ultimate stacks with it.

Monkey King Bar - Your mana problem has been solved, so its time to get more DPS to your Tuskarr. MKB has +88 damage which can add some very nice damage to Walrus Punch (4x critical if your opponent's HP less than 50%). Its IAS increases your DPS and minibash wil help you to chase when your sigil is activated.

Assault Cuirass - is a smart route to take, supporting the rest of the team with the positive and negative auras to shift the tides towards team's favor. IAS and Armor adds to DPS and survivability at the same time.

Sange & Yasha - An all in one item (provide additional HP, damage, AS, MS, and Maim ability). Your EHP is increase as well as your probability to chase and kill your enemies when combined with your skills).

Stygian Desolator - Boost your DPS. Thanks to +60 damage and -6 armor reduction. But no EHP at all.
note: You can combine this with vladimir to add your survivability.

Satanic - Gives you DPS (+45 damage) and more EHP (HP and lifesteal). Choose between this, stygian, or Sange & Yasha depend on your game's situation.


Ymir the Tuskarr Strategy

You can pick this hero when your team needs disabler, tanker, supporting chaser, team battle initiator, or chase assister.

You need to be supported by:
- Babysitters :
to get a good farming on early game
- Close Range Disablers :
Snowball can provide them with free kellen's dagger. Good disabler teammates can make an effective gank on every phase of the game.
- Close Range Nukers :
They (such as Nevermore and Crystal Maiden) can give a good combo. But in some circumstances only (no disabler).

Beware of his counter:
- Close Range Disablers:
The more you close to them, the more you close to death.
- Silencers and Manabreakers:
can't do anything except do normal attacks. You will choose to gank them real fast without fail if you want to success. Including Doom Bringer, a hero with an awesome spell which is troublesome for A spell depended hero like Tuskarr.
- Evaders:
Blinkers or windwalkers. Hard to chase and can pop-up from nowhere to gank you.

You can choose any starting lane. Just deny and farm by last hit as best as you can. try to harass and dominate the lane. You can do that with the help of your teammate. Don't push the lane unnecessarily. If you have been holding a solo lane and you are above level 7, you might want to go gank a low level hero. Don't do ganking alone because It will be more effective if you do that with your teammate. Before doing that at least you must have a boot and a bottle on your slots.

What you should be doing in mid game is ganking a lot with your partner. Because your main role is making enemy's carry hero suffer so they cant be threats to your team on late game. Try to find chances to gank every time you have in this phase of the game. Snowball can be the initiator, follow with ice shard which can be the nuke and the trap, finish with walrus punch. Some additional hit will be enough to make em dying. You can use frozen sigil to slowing down your targets if they still have HP remain on them. But normally use frozen sigil first before snowballing so you can prevent enemies for running away.

In the late game, your role is a bit different as Mid-Game's: to slow and pick off certain heroes. Use frozen sigil when the teams clashes to slowing enemy's team and focus on your remaining skill to carry heroes. But always remember to hit enemies heroes as much you can using Snowball and Ice shards (because they have an AOE damage). Walrus punch to kill them or at least disable them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Obviously, he is going to get a nerf, come on, Slark was alright when he was first released, because he had small HP, but now, Tuskarr, wtf, come on, str that is a semi-carry/semi-ganker, and maybe, one of the best initiators.

    Hope ICEFROG can make it a balance hero... ^^

    ReplyDelete
  29. Is somehow not sometimes... sorry spell it wrongly

    ReplyDelete
  30. what kind of items do you make on tuskarr ?

    ReplyDelete
  31. shit what an hero ramPAgE

    ReplyDelete
  32. WAY too OP...in the hands of a novice its still gg....I mean his spells w/o his ulti make him a great hero, slow, snowball + AoE ulties = ownage...but then Walrus Punch...@level 16 you have what, around 100 base attack. So thats 550-700 damage with 14 second CD that slows for 4 seconds, and costs 100 mana on a STR hero, so just imagine if you have like +100 damage or something, easy to get, but would mean your ulti does up to 1100 damage AND slows with 14 sec CD and 100 mana cost...IMBA OP, nerf this guy HARD

    ReplyDelete
  33. urgent remake! very very easy to play with. he's strong early,mid and late. he can initiate, he can chase, he can kill with ease and he has a better version of "Fissure". NERFFF IT, too imba.

    ReplyDelete
  37. use this guy will rape hard. snowball with allies hero.sure kill

    ReplyDelete
  38. beyond godlike .. shit :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. well, i've tried him, and i feel that the game is eaaasy. so this hero is a little bit unbalance.
    first: his snowball skill, it said that it ms is same with the combine ms of all hero within. but if tuskar alone, the ms of snowball is higher than tuskar ms. it cast range is about 1000 or 2000 range, but when it turn snowball, it chasing anywhere, like barathrum, but it can brings allies hero. well, ice frog can rebalanced this skill.
    second: his ulti, what a damage, but fast cooldown? cmon, 300 damage, 2,5 crit (even 4), and slow 40% 4 sec + tiny throwing? make the cooldown longer, or reduce the slow thing. with skill 2 for chasing, it's enough.
    and tuskar is the only hero that can slow, stun, chase, movement blocker, and toss. no escape right? hehe
    err, raigor with shiva, phase boots, stun, slow, movement blocker, chasing, but no toss. well, maybe it's a christmas gift from icefrog, haha. thx

    ReplyDelete
  40. again? hehe it's chasing ms is higher than bara. bara is limited to 522. tuskar snowball is maybe 1700? 5 hero buy boots and together within swowball. and i check again, snowball ms when tuskar alone is same. maybe i see the snowball is big so, well, just eye illusion

    ReplyDelete
  41. ONE WORD ONLY...IMBA

    ReplyDelete
  42. im pretty sure his ulti will get nerf next verse...

    ReplyDelete
  43. gtfo wayyyyyyyyyyy too imba. whoever says that he sshouldnt get changed, uninstall warcraft and gtfo of the rts community. becuase he is sooo good you shouldnt be thanking icefrog, you should be begging him to nerf this hero.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wtf... this is to imba... icefrog make another look on him and introduce new heroes that are better than this... more likely to be the primar attribute agility

    ReplyDelete
  45. played 15 games these days....every single one, tuskar raped everybody and won the game.

    Imagine tuskar with leviathan in snowball....or enigma.....is it imba or not?

    ReplyDelete
  46. new heroes are much powerful than older it should be some balance
    for first skill on Icarus should be shorter dive distances for example 900 range
    sun ray is nearly imposible to target well
    for Tuscarr
    ice shards should be decreased or damage or ice duration both are too powerful compare this to centaur warchief damage/stun ratio
    frozen sigil with shivas guard makes enemy almost stuned
    keep up the good work ICEFROG but please make some balnces
    all the best from Drow

    ReplyDelete
  47. Tuskar should be nerfed on his ulti. Cd is very short and mana cost too. Snowball should aso be make in a unguided one instead of a guided 1.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Above said: "this is the best hero ever." but i may ask you, how is your idea of being the best? imbalance = best? come on, im not talking about his ulti or snowball stuff, only his 1st skill already make me want to quit playing dota. fking hurt and block and sometime even stuck?! crazy hero. rebalance is necessary, remake is needed.

    ReplyDelete
  70. well, it's the hero's first appearance anyways, no need to say too much about it. The fact that his skills will be changed or nerfed to fit with dota's balancing gameplay is always a certain, so y'all don't need to spam much the rec8 thing anyways. Dota 6.70 is just a introduction map, public testing phase i think. the balanced one is always the later version of it, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  71. LOOK RETARDS... ICEFROG made all heroes better and improved them and items... http://www.playdota.com/changelogs/6.70 dont blame tusk that is ovp and stuff... NOOBS

  72. Anonymous December 27, 2010 6:53 PM
    U dumb douche.. His skills are pretty much imbalanced if you'll observe. How can you even counter a hero that can make you a dental floss in the EARLY, MID, and LATE game? I bet you will get very pissed off when an IMBA player playing and IMBALANCED hero will rape you in the ass all day... STUPID RETARD

    ReplyDelete
  73. yes, critical hits are useless early game. this hero is not actually imba. just fight this guy with some range hero (viper), he will probably lose. also naga will easily defeat this hero, just take note that walrus punch is a single target skill

    ReplyDelete
  74. @above 2,3 PFFthahaha idiots.. what about AOE stun noobs? what about ogre magi , admiral, sven, knight davion tiny centa... tusk has no power versus them
    and if they are joined by a carry in battle it is gg... they pwn tusk very fast.. tusk is no ovp hero only if it gets feeded but as i said above there are a lot of heroes who get imba if they are fed up... so please... learn to play with him and shut up...

    ReplyDelete
  75. Recreate Tuskarr,.... the ultimate of Tuskarr is so ImBA! less cooldown and realy powerfull damage..... and Tuskarr is cool in Ganking.... Especially 5on5.... but there are other heroes that are Imba right?? like Troll,Mortred,Balanar,etc. if they get in late game, they will gonna kick your Ass !!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. pfftt..whahahahahaha
    noobz!!!
    tuskar is not imba u can kill him easily if u think ^_^ just like using blademail ../..

    ReplyDelete
  77. vladimir, basher, sange yasha, phase boot, assault cuirras, dagger/bkb/mkb/whatever item ==''

    this hero aren't unbalanced.. but, i didn't like the his ulti cooldwn duration.. btw, the phoenix's icarus dive cooldwn are 40sec?!! o.O wtf!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. needs remake... strong early, very strong mid and still strong late. i like his ultimate but it's too easy to land it(with snowball),and maybe a little more CD.

    ReplyDelete
  79. vladimir, basher, sange yasha, phase boot, assault cuirras, dagger/bkb/mkb is that a build???? wtffff before u get those items, the enemy team broke everything

    ReplyDelete
  80. Let's discuss 'bout the most useful orb fx if u want to play tuskarr as hard carry:
    1- Mask of Madness ! (i like it)
    2- Maelstrom -->Mjolinir (i like it)
    3- S&Y (mm i have to think bout)
    4- Dominator -->Satanic (occasional)
    5- Diffusal (dont like it)
    6- skady (i like it, but not really viable)
    7- desolator (mm i have to think bout)

    ReplyDelete
  81. quote: vladimir, basher, sange yasha, phase boot, assault cuirras, dagger/bkb/mkb is that a build???? wtffff before u get those items, the enemy team broke everything

    those items are all possible with tuskar, he's also a spammer with the ice and snowball and baby, cradle and all.

    ReplyDelete
  82. too much imbalanced. maybe the next version will rebalance his skills. too little manacost but too much damage.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Morphling wave skill and Syllabear perma stun can easily own Tuskar

    ReplyDelete
  84. vladimirs or eye of skadi
    lothars
    bottle
    battle fury
    radiance
    dagon 1,2,3,4,5

  85. he has mana probs so arcane boots 1st

    ReplyDelete
  86. Snowball unguided.. thats a good idea

    ReplyDelete
  87. i think his too much good
    snowballs should be unguided just like meat hooks and arrows (mirana)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Tuskar is amazing...
    Big damage with low mana...
    He is too strong...
    and about his third skill, it's very amazing...

    i think this hero must be remarkable

    Tools for Tuskar
    - Arcane boots...i more like it than Powerthread
    - Battlefurry
    - Cuirass
    - HOT
    - MKB
    - Maybe buriza

    ReplyDelete
  89. Tuskar Items

    Battle Fury
    Arcane Boots / Phase Boots ( i think?)
    Guinsoo / Orchid Malevolence - no escaping
    Assault Cuirass
    HoT

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh dudes, i think all of you are those fucking mimimi-imba-hero-flamer..If you got some skills you gould easily kill tuskarr.Also you forgot that dota isnt game made for 1on1 it´s a game wich works on teamplay and if you weren´t so stupid kiddis´you wont flame here...Btw Why there is no flame against Mortred? Her ulti is without cooldown and crits in endgame with over1.5k :O

    ReplyDelete
  92. @above, you are looking one sided, if you look at the other team on a 5v5 with tuskar on the enemy surely there's not much you can do. just come in snowball and let another stun or maybe even aoe stun and from there you're done, while maybe your team might have killed one hero on the opposite, remember Tuskar's ult cd... thats enough to kill atleast a hero. Mortred has her ult, but Tuskar as a Combo- skills...

    ReplyDelete

  96. if theres an ultimate hero, its void and troll, no hero can match this two, if u really know how to play dota and icefrog will always make adjustments with a new hero so stop whining, and lastly tuskar depends on mana for the skill combo right? even naga siren can kill this or other hero that has illussions and drain his mana using item or skill like magina. try to think and use other heroes. i bet keeper of the light can sustain this hero if u know how to use his skill.

    ReplyDelete
  97. u all noob arr=.=?? this hero is fine.. i can bully this hero using pudge.. slardar can bully this mammalia easily

    ReplyDelete
  98. no need to think. just play if lose u noob if win that ok le.....

    ReplyDelete
  99. Omg. . This hero is f*kin weak la. .

    ReplyDelete
  100. hey anyone say this hero weak is newbies
    it just u dunno how to use this hero
    or u battle with AI or 5 year old kid

    ReplyDelete
  101. oh i forget there is no AI for this hero
    but for sure u guys are noob

    ReplyDelete
  102. At least make the range of his snowball very short, like come on, I pushed myself away with ForceStaff when the snowball was chasing me, but still, it reached me, come on man!, WTF, fucking OP

    ReplyDelete
  103. If the range of the snowball was shorter it nearly would be a crap skill...Wich range does the skill has to in your opinion?

    ReplyDelete
  104. @above - i used force staff when he was near, and come on, the damn snowball still reached me, that's too long man.

    ReplyDelete
  105. @force staff man, every hero has his own rival try using other hero and if u cant use force staff so dont use it, u cant use force staff to any hero or skill, just like the other skills, theres no perfect skill or item, meaning everything has his own limitations, if theres a perfect hero or weapon or item then you are IceFrog LoLs!!! To all stop whining, use ur brains there are so many heroes in dota. even ezalor can kill this hero and if ur problem is snowball, use the 2nd skill of ezalor, the longer the travel the more mana drains and how can tuskarr kill u if he has no mana?

    ReplyDelete
  106. even lion can kill this easily... i think those people who complains a lot, knows maybe 2 or 5 heroes only. practice other heroes u noobs!!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Snowball = Surprise Butt Secks! :DD

  108. this shit always kill me/// T_T

    ReplyDelete
  110. IDIOTS! TRY TO GIVE TUSKARR A DAGON THEN WALRUS PUNCH!! THAT SHOULD SHUT YOUR FUCK**G MOUTHS!! SHEESHH...

    ReplyDelete
  111. Imba combo for Tuskarr: Snowball+ Ice Shards + Dagon + Wallrus Punch... TRY TO USE YOUR BRAINSS... THE COMMENT ABOVE THIS IS CORRECT NOOBSS!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. tuskarr alredy balance. 6.70c reduce dmg and increase mana cost for ulti also increase its cooldown duration.

    balance to me.

    ReplyDelete
  113. only noob like u will be caught in that kind of combo, do u think all heroes/players will be caught on that kind of combo sheeshh!!! practice man... u can say any combo u like but if u are a real pro, theres always a way. like what they said if he has no mana how can he use that combo.
    instead of complaining why dont u practice. noob try this, use ezalor and use the 2nd skill,after the first combo snowball lets see if he can still use the dagon. every hero has his own weaknesses but not for troll or void in late game. this two heroes will eat your tuskarr. manta diffusal chrono ur done!!!. even magnataur and slardar can kill this, stun lock!!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. tuskarr vs doom bringer? still imba tuskarr? hehehe. you complain a lot because u dont know how to use other heroes.

    ReplyDelete
  115. IMO Tuskarr item build is the same like Kunkkas as he then can dish hell a lot of dmg with his ulti.

    ReplyDelete
  116. he will be balanced though. cheer guys! :D

    ReplyDelete
  117. hey!..what r u saying it's imba..it can be beaten easily in late game..no hero is imba..

    ReplyDelete
  118. the problem is, if a pro plays tuskar. he can easily own early game and will make sure there will be no chance for late game to come.

    ReplyDelete
  119. well dude, tuskar is now balance, if you all keep complaining so you must be a NOOB, with an effective items you can easily pawn that tuskar, use your own small brain to think a strategy to pwan tuskar, dont keep complaint like a retard

    ReplyDelete
  120. TUSKAR NOT IMBA, I PAWN HIM LIKE DOG WITH USING SLADAR AND URSA, I PLAYED 30 GAMES, AND EACH GAME HAVE TUSKRA AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I PAWN HIM EASILY LIKE IM FUCKING YOUR MOTHER NOOBS

    ReplyDelete
  121. every hero has its limitations and weakness,so please stop posting bad comments on him. he maybe strong but still,he may someday find his greatest counterpart. just like what happened unto another imba hero slark. as well as unto troll, raigor, naga siren, lycan, doom, trax, ursa,my fav huskarr and the rest who also have their counterparts.
    each hero is great and unique;you just simply need to get the best out of them:)continue playing,enjoy all of you sir
    tnx to icefrog.

  122. my core item will be
    bottle or arcane boot and dagon + wards .. this hero to me is much much for ganking..

    roll + shard + dagon + ulti should the work ;D

    ReplyDelete
  123. please remake this hero icefrog,,,this one is so imba and easy to use,,,only noob players can't play this hero,,,

    ReplyDelete
  124. the comment above by -pilot_geass, is very true. i agree...

    "the problem is, if a pro plays tuskar. he can easily own early game and will make sure there will be no chance for late game to come." - this is true if pro vs. noob, but not for pro vs. pro

    ReplyDelete
  125. at the first look tuskar is slightly ovp but if you know how to counter him it will be no prob cause his worst nightmare is blood and doom
    prob fixed
    haha

    ReplyDelete
  126. ""the problem is, if a pro plays tuskar. he can easily own early game and will make sure there will be no chance for late game to come." - this is true if pro vs. noob, but not for pro vs. pro"

    Not really. With the new Smoke of Deceit the pros will just own wards so that you either nerf the opposing warder (Sentry Wards cost a lot of money if you're placing it on every ward) or get the kill, so there is no real counter and if you all do have one then tell me. Doom can't counter him for sure. Tuskarr will just rofl in and get the kills after which he's useless anyway...

    ReplyDelete
  127. no real counter? for sure u dont know how to play DOTA. practice and you will see.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I would prefer if instead of the 3rd skill, he had a passive one... Although it's really nice in teamplay, he is a strength hero after all...!

    ReplyDelete
  129. DOTA is a teamwork's game.
    this hero is good in teamwork.
    but not really as god like la...

    ReplyDelete
  130. This hero is easy to play with. I suggest the reduction of his ulti's damage or at least make it long enough to be used once again. You can almost use it twice with a team clash.

    ReplyDelete
  131. walrus punch GODLIKE

    ReplyDelete
  132. make his ulti 60s cd

    ReplyDelete
  133. You can easily counter him with Magina. Just burn the mana and Oops! Dude you cannot do shit w/o mana!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. dont make walrus snowball can target hero make it only can target to the ground that will make it miss...because when icefrog downgrade again walrus it will be useless....

    ReplyDelete
  135. delete this hero from tavern.. just put this hero on FUN TAVERN!!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hey y r ppl flaming d critiques >.> let icefrog read their comments and decide for himself la~ stop the flames~~~~

    ReplyDelete
  137. fisrt look :
    So funny how walrus can fight...

    5 and up to 10 minutes later:
    How hurts it can be if struck by Big snowball and then Punched into the air!!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. "delete this hero from tavern.. just put this hero on FUN TAVERN!!!
    January 5, 2011 10:35 PM"

    PLEASE STOP PLAYING DOTA NOOB, TUSKAR CAN EASILY BE PAWN IN THE GAME IF YOU USE YOUR OWN SMALL FUCKING RETARD BRAIN TO THINK A STRATEGY AND EFFECTIVE ITEMS WITH SUITABLE HERO TO COUNTER HIM,SHEESH I HATE THIS KIND OF NOOB WHO KEEP COMPLAINT, STOP PLAY DOTA PLEASE NOOBS!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. yes, i agree with comment above, in DotA there are no such things that a hero cant be counter at all, each heroes have their own weaknesses, so it up to the player how to counter their enemy, for pros they have many ways and strategy with a good teamwork to own the game, but for the NOOBS???? they only can complain cause they had been raped by the pros like slut hahahahaha NOOBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    ReplyDelete
  148. this hero should be remaked. anonymous is just weak.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Tuskarr is surely IMBA hero. That is IT! final! no offense but this is true. :P

    ReplyDelete
  150. noobs?. hah. then you are weak!. what is wrong with complaining anyway?. it is just complaining.

    ReplyDelete
  151. well here all bunch of NOOBS, tuskar is not imba if u got an effective items and suitable hero to counter him, keep on complaining NOOBS.. NOOBS always complain and always being rape by pros thats y they keep complaining, agree? hahahaha NOOBS

    ReplyDelete
  152. agree, only noobs will complain and imba is for noobs only. so starting now anyone who complains is a TOTAL NOOB!!! accept the fact if u can kill this hero and keep saying tuskarr is imba therefore u r a BIG TIME LOSER in dota. stop playing dota try other games.

    ReplyDelete
  153. i think morphling's wave skill is a good counter for escape and added damage to tuskar after being hit by snowball

    ReplyDelete
  154. aggreed...IMBA!!!!!
    i got beyond godlike and rampage for TUSKARR
    WTF.....this one is unstoppable
    -rhonvirus(phillippines)

    ReplyDelete
  155. Not the most IMBA but i believe that he is the best ganker hero with the snowball....nC AOE skill and nC ice shards that block path(another ganking skill) and insane ulti for late game with insane cooldown...Not IMBA but just good enough to make a whole team gankers...Like him...and Tuskar is the only hero that can slow, stun, chase, movement blocker, and toss. No escape right? hehe...

    ReplyDelete
  156. The Ice Shards are quiet effective as it deals damage as well as blocks in an "U" shaped area between them, which makes it extremely difficult to escape.Only limited hereos can escape it like morph or spectre.Tuskar overall can be said as quite effective.

    ReplyDelete
  157. change its skill pls. It's too powerful

    ReplyDelete
  158. So freaking OP. 90% whoever has Tuskar on their team, that team wins!

    ReplyDelete
  159. this one too imba lol

    ReplyDelete
  160. Magnum + Nvm + Tuskar in snowball = ?

    ReplyDelete
  161. Retards. Get a ghost stick, he can't punch you. Or better yet, get blademail. More armor means punch deals less damage, and if you want, just smack his punch right back at him.
    I never had a problem fighting against Tuskar. That's because I think first before I complain.

    ReplyDelete
  162. to^
    it's still to IMBA u dumb.. i think u always use tuskar in every game. that's why u don't want that hero got remaked. such a noob. everyone can use that hero. what's the fun of playing DotA if u almost always win / kill many people with an IMBA hero?? stupid

    ReplyDelete
  163. play'em you'll see what joy it brings you...or maybe not..cause you dont know how to play tuskarr...so you want'em to be remaked...already released 6.70b and 6.70c what changes should be made?if there were, icefrog changed it in 70b and 70c already or he balanced him and gave us 70d... the real question is ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH TO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF TUSKARR, ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH TO CONTOL HIM?? you say imba, remake, of the hero..AN IMBA HERO EQUALS IMBA TEAM MATES TOO...tuskarr wont be fed if there is no feeder, no good teammates?? WHAT IMBA?? imbalanced for the fact that every game you have an enemy tuskarr you quit on GARENA and you cant do anything about the dude...DAMN suckish reason...too imba you say,.

    ReplyDelete
  164. right on dude!! if he was imba he would have been remade and icefrog would have given us 70d or 6.71 already.=D 2 thumbs up!
    TUSKY aint imba! sometimes youre just going to be a good dota player to own him..
    Noob suckish reason for imba tuskarr is failure to win against him..=D yeah! own!

    ReplyDelete
  165. good teammates, good items, good player makes tuskarr..not skills... you cant be tuskarr if youre noob enough to say he is imba..the dude is right..he is not imba okay.

    ReplyDelete
  166. right! the dude above with the nosebleed english is right! tuskarr aint imba. player prowess plus experience and specially brains can make tuskarr be at youre command or enslave him if he's youre enemy!

    ReplyDelete
  182. this hero sucks. any pure dps/caster acn easily destroy him... useless hero. or either buying one hood of defiance can made him really tanky. i tried it with my friend. AA vs Tuskar. i dominated him

  185. Imba is Imbalance

    ReplyDelete
  186. idiots... icefrog doesn't make them anymore , blizzard does...and tuskarr is easily countered by techies or lothar or any silence hero. however, tuskarr is imba in combo with centaur,2nd level first blood,only thing that can actually counter them is an axe/healer combo
