Rubick, the son of Aghanim, is a force to be reckoned with. Crowds marvel in wonder at his effortless ability to hurl objects through the air, using nothing but his mind. Many wizards have challenged him yet none have surpassed his powerful and debilitating magics. The Grand Magus, with his endless talent, will stop at nothing to bewilder and outsmart his enemies, even if it means turning their own magic against them. Renowned for his unique ability to steal magics with a mere thought, he is undeniably a favorable asset to the Sentinel in their fight against the Scourge.

Rubick the Grand Magus Skill Descriptions

Telekinesis
Rubick uses his telekinetic powers to lift the enemy into the air briefly and then hurls them back at the ground. The unit lands on the ground with such force that it stuns nearby enemies.

Lift Duration: 1.5/1.75/2/2.25 seconds
Stun duration: 1/1.25/1.5/1.75 (in the area it lands in, all enemy units except the initial target)
Land stun AoE: 325

Cast Range: 550/575/600/625
Cooldown: 18
Manacost: 160

While the target is in the air, Rubick may use a secondary ability to control the throw the enemy in a targeted direction. Maximum of 375 units away.

Note: The directional landing happens when the lift duration is over, but you can issue the direction order anytime.

Fade Bolt
Rubick creates a powerful stream of arcane energy that travels between enemy units, dealing damage and reducing their attack damage for 10 seconds. Each bounce reduces the damage dealt by 4%.

Damage: 75/150/225/300
Attack Reduction: -14/20/26/32 Damage [-7/10/13/16 on creeps]
Duration: 10 seconds

Cast Range: 800
Cooldown: 10
Manacost: 90/95/100/105

Null Field
Rubick's mastery of the arcane protects his allies against weaker magics, granting them magic resistance.

Magic Damage Reduction: 5/10/15/20%
AoE: 900

Spell Steal
Rubick studies the trace magical essence of one enemy hero, learning the secrets of the last spell the hero cast. Rubick can use this spell as his own for several minutes or until he dies.

Spell is stolen for: 3/4/5 minutes

Cast Range: 1000
Manacost: 25
Cooldown: 20/18/16

Note: If you steal another spell, the old one is lost. Both teams see what spell was stolen. Items cannot be stolen, only abilities. You will get a warning message when the spell steal duration is close to expiring.
Note 2: There are a small set of spell exceptions (for technical reasons) that cannot be copied.
List of skill that Rubick cannot steal

Rubick the Grand Magus Skill Build

1. Telekinesis
2. Fade Bolt
3. Fade Bolt
4. Telekinesis
5. Fade Bolt
6. Spell Steal
7. Fade Bolt
8. Telekinesis
9. Telekinesis
10. Null Field
11. Spell Steal
12. Null Field
13. Null Field
14. Null Field
15. Stats
16. Null Field
17-25. Stats

Rubick is easy to get killed in early game, so take Telekinesis first to prevent it. Then maximize Fade Bolt for its nuke and it is only need a few mana. So it will be more useful than stuning spell. Next Telekinesis until maximum and then Null field. Spell Steal is taken everytime it is available. Stats for the last.

If your enemy has more dps heroes than spellcasters, you can choose to take stats instead of Null Field. Also if you meet spell spammers in your lane, you have an option to take Null Field on early level. But it will slow you down when you want to gank.

Rubick the Grand Magus Item Build

1. 3x ironwood branches, Mantle of Intelligence, Magic Stick, and Tango
2. Boots of Speed
3. Finish Arcane Boots
4. Finish Magic Wand
5. Finish Null Talisman
6. Urn of Shadows

Rubick's core item should be like this:

Arcane Boots - Boost your movement speed as well as your mana pool. Good for ganker like Rubick. Help your friend to spam their skills too.

Magic Wand - Obviously used for instant regen (HP and Mana). Best when enemy has spell users.

Null Talisman - Good early stats and can be upgraded later into dagon.

Urn of Shadow - Gives you HP boost. Also a free salves. Obviously get this if no one on your side have it.

Bottle - One slot, 600 gold, fast regen (both HP and Mana), and a measure against mana burners. But don't take it early because you need stats more than this. Purchase it when you're ready to gank.

Boots of Travel - Change with this boots on late game for his mobility.

Dagon - Perfect for ganking. But if you get hard to farm and fail to get this in early to mid game, change to other useful item. Such as luxuries.

Here are Luxury late game items for him:

Guinsoo's Scythe of Vyse - Very good stats (str, agl, especially int), mana regen, and Hex. Disabling your opponent's carry or good spell caster.

Eul's Scepter of Divinity - An alternative for Guinsoo. Its cheaper of course.

Shiva's guard - Huge amount of mana is welcomed. Plus Its Aoe nuke and slow. Good when combined with Rubick's spells.

Linken's Sphere - Not only gives attributes and HP/Mana regen, but also provide you with ability to prevent the effect of deadly skill. Get this item if opponent's team has good nukers (such as Lina, Lion, Lucifer, etc) and single disabler (leviathan, etc)

Khadgar's Pipe of Insight - Gives magic resistance againts magic damagers. A situational item. Get it if the other team has a lot of magic spammers.

Veil of Discord - This new item is really nice. Additional stats and Its Discord can amplifies your magic damage. Get this if your team has more than one of good spellcasters.

Orchid Malevolence - Consist of cheap obivion staff and useful for counter enemy's scary spells or imba skills. Its also amplifies magic damage.

Rubick the Grand Magus Strategy

You can pick this hero if your team need nuker, supporter, AOE disabler, or spell stealer (?)

You can be supported by:

- Your team's Ganker
and Carries (Ursa, Lina, Venge, Bala)
It's more easy when ganking with them.
- Enemy team's AOE disabler (Treant, Leviathan, Enigma)
Steal their spell so you can use it for your team's benefit.
You can be a supporter for:
- Your team's heroes, almost all of them (especially carries)

Beware of his counter:
Silencer DotA Hero Drow Ranger DotA Hero Nerubian Assassin DotA Hero Death Prophet DotA Hero Anti-Mage DotA Hero Doom Bringer DotA Hero or carrier
- Silencer and manaburner
Once you are silenced or mana-emptied you can do nothing except normal attack. Thats game over (espesially Magina and Lucifer)
Counter Lucifer:
Let he dooms to other hero on your team and steal it. When you are on a same lane with him harass him and control your lane. Don't make him farm easily.
Demon Witch DotA Hero or carrier
- Disabler
You are a squishy hero, so you must be careful not to get stunned or disabled.

Playstyle

On early game, you can start laning by solo mid or dual lane. But when you take dual lane be careful not too carried away because your stun isn't enough to disable 2 enemies on one time. You will easily get pawned.
Rubick has a good stun and nuke. But not enough to kill your enemy. Just be patient until you get to level 6. Bolt will be spammable when it goes to lvl 3.

When the game enter mid game, you must be at lvl 6. At this time you should already have Arcane Boots and Wand in your slot. Then start gank with help from your teammate.
Gank is your job. You can do Telekinesis, Spell Steal your enemy's skill right before he dies, and end with bolt. But always remember to leave the kills to your carries. Farm between gank and try to destroy tower.
Aim to get some good support items such as Guinsoo, Discord, or Shiva while youre in this phase of the game.

Late game will be hard for spellcaster like Rubick. So always stick with your team and support them as much as you can. Your spell still good enough to break the enemy's combo, especially when you steal a good skill from them. Choose it carefully. And also Rubick's AOE magic protector for your whole team.
At this moment you must be already get at least Guinsoo, or Shiva. Use it wise.

  15. People. This hero is NOT a late game hero. He's a freaking ganker/support. So please, no more item suggestions like Skadi or Manta. And they should make a list of ultimates that cannot be copied...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Why does he have to keep changing the skills of old dota heroes? Naga's Crit is ruined to a common active, Tide's passive which he used to be good at is totally ruined. NO1 IS GONNA USE HIM AT ALL with a 6 sec limit used to be passive skill!!, Treant now is shit. He no longer has that insane armor buff but is now replaced with a useless "similiar to offering skill" and btw it does not stack with offering (tried it)and WTF its duration of Overgrowth is reduced to only 3 fuking secs i mean cmon man.. the only thing that is a bit better is that leech shit thing? Is he out of his mind???? And look at troll now he is even more imbal than before so everyone will keep using troll. I mean what the fuk. And lastly look at TB. What the fuck man. I guess everyone is so amazed with the cool skills and stuff but they forgot that TB's leech life IS REMOVED and Conjure Images used to do 50% now it does only 20%. The zeal skill is created to make up with the change BUT that is just puny.

    I dont mind him improving heroes like reworking how shit works BUT NOT continously overhauling them and making thrash.

  32. Man wtf i loved terror blade before. Even thow im prety imba with him now. His first move is anti dps just get dagon bkb and have util ready. fighting against a dps 1v1 use first skill run in circles while hitting them use bkb use soul steal then use dagon. instant kill vs dps and ive proved it many games anti morph anti mort anti gondar ahahah and anti void. I also found a bug terror blade vs lina his zeal alwalys give him atleast 1 hp when he gets nuke and sospose to die. e.g. against lina i had 200 hp she used util and i had 1 hp left so i just soul steal and dagon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. From the killer combo with terror blade. Its me again found the same bug with gondar again. max out his moves wind walk shiruken and his util and 1 point of attributes. and then get jednia and he will get unlimited crit ON EVERY ATTACK.

  76. guys...some of you are totally crazy and have no idea of what dota is.
    this new hero should never get carry items. as someone said he is a support roamer.
    items are not really important if you play him good because he can get A LOT of useful skills from other heroes.
    As items I would suggest:
    - BoT, (phase are also good),
    - eul scepter (provides decent mana regen also)
    - vanguard/hood (if you get targeted a lot)
    - dagoon - this item is situational and you should think twice whether is worthed in your game or not (sometimes can be really good)
    - linken - always a good item on any hero, especially if the other team want to kill you first (and probably will because you are playing a gay hero). do not get linken if you choose vanguard/hood
    - guinsoo - a luxury item worth buying on ANY hero (very fun to get it on magina :))
    - dagger - this item is for advanced game play and it requires good control. get it if you are comfortable to use it.

    OPTIONAL:
    - mekasm - if there is no one else to get it
    - jangoo - very good for your team now that you can recharge it. and besides, you get nice stats for that price.
    - ghost scepter - can be really good if you play against heroes like mortred, trol, void etc
    - sheeva's guard - not a bad item, yet i consider you can always get better for that gold. besides, it can be difficult to get the staff because it's quite expensive.

    DON'T GET THESE:
    - any dps item is just stupid (of fun agains noobs).
    - lothar's edge - i really hate this item because it's only good against noobs. it's also bought mainly by noobs and they get very surprised how fast i get a gem or dust and THEY DIE!! (hehe) - dagger + eul is way better to escape.
    - cuirass - someone else in your team should get it, and you must rush for guinsoo. you cant afford to buy shit
    - power treads - not that bad but you really need more speed. better get jangoo for life and attack speed and wait for travel.
    - manta style - this is also big waste of money as you are not meant to kill a hero by hitting him.
    - refresher orb - big waste of money

    As strategy, try to lane with another hero for some combo spells, and gang as much as possible. the idea is to unbalance the game a little in the beginning so that your carry (leoric, slardar, trol etc) can build up some items. After that he will win the game.

    just have fun and try to think outside the box.

    and watch totalnewbie on youtube. :)

  77. these hero needs much more mana point,and attack speed but the last is mana regeneration
    no need movement speed because he can steal a skill so no need to run just spell the magic at all cost

  78. WTF!! rubick doing requiem oh my!!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. WAIT

    Rubick studies the trace magical essence of one enemy hero, learning the secrets of the last spell the hero cast. Rubick can use this spell as his own for several minutes or until he dies.

    he steals the last spell that hero casts

    so he can steal invoker's skills?

    Why this Items? If u see Maguz can cast 2 spells on his ulti. If u have fast hands u cant kill ur enemy in sec. By using Etherial blade dagon + 2nd skill of maguz and the skills u copied from other heroes. And why lothars cuz u can set ur skills by lothars and u can use it to escape for enemy's. This is for Gangker Build

  90. rubick is a support hero...

    kaya ang best item dyan

    mekansm/pipe-to support allies

    shiva/guinsoo-to slow down enemies

    Radiance-for DPS

    jango of endurance/Linken Sphere

    Urn of shadow/bloodstone

    Arcane boots

    I dont recommend:

    dagon/manta/- his only a supporter
    dagger/lothar
    bkb-he has passive that makes him magic resistance why not linken as an alternative?

  113. apparently refresher orb is a good item for rubick if its used by a non-noob players (especially those who oppose the idea without thinking). having enough mana and refresher, rubicks can use 4 skills with his ulti.. by stealing 1 earlier on, in a team battle, rubick can use its first stolen spell, followed by a second stolen spell. continued by refreshing it to reuse the second stolen spell and finally steal another spell to be used.. not to mention his other skills will be refreshed as well n that would be 8 skills in total to spam and it could definately makes a great difference in a team battle.. however this applies only to pro-players who are fast n flexible in their gameplay.. so if u are only noobs like u ppl who suggest end games items like rapier buriza mkb n all those shit, rubicks isnt a hero for u..

  121. This hero's skills and stolen spells on its own are usually enough to kill early game, just go for eul's as disable (ms bonus and mana regen also very useful) and then dagon so you won't lose your nuking power mid game on, then bloodstone to make up for his low hp.
    Early game rubick and tiny in same lane, telekinesis + fade bolt + avalanche + toss, guaranteed kill.

  126. I'm not sure if it is my eyes or what, but your skill build for Rubick has 5 levels of Null Field.
    Instead of Spell Steal at Level 16, it has a Null Field... Other than that, this strategy is good! Love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  127. come on guyz plz ;/ he is a support ganker hero. rub is not a late game hero and should be played like a support..so the item build should be: arcane boots,dagger,mekanms,hex,orchid,shivas......this will give him the ability to support and have a bit survival during teambattles :)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Mga tanga!....best support si magus on 4v4 or 5v5..at killer din sa 1v1-3v3..dapat ang buo lang sa kanya ay ganito:

    -ANY BOOTS (nag aaway away pa kayo sa kung anung boots dapat ang gamitin eh lahat naman un auz lang para sa kanya..sapatusin ko kayo dyan eh..

    -EULS SCEPTER magandang combo para sa telekenesis oh kaya pantakas kapag ikaw ang target.

    -LINKEN SPHERE bagay para sa kanya.gamitin nyo.

    -GUINSOO Pang disabled sa hero target kapag gustong tumakas dahil malapit nang ma-GG. Bagay na bagay sa isang support Hero kagaya ni magus.

    -MAELSTORM-Magandang gamit para sakanya,..owning mo lahat ng creeps sa lane mo,..puro money shot..bilis pera!..kapag nag nag-maasim at lumapit ang enemy hero mo,..labas kunat nun..

    -DAGON/PIPE-maganda pang godlike ung DAGON sa 2v2-5v5..bawal sa 1v1 game..PIPE kn lang mas bagay sa 1v1..


    oh ayan!..naliwanagan na cguro kayo,..geh,..GG-hin nyo na yung mga puta na kalaban nyo,..magiging noob yan seinyu,..hahaha!!..HAPPY GODLIKE SAYO at -BUHAY again sa kanila,..

  132. Chicken Nuggets?July 18, 2011 at 8:10 PM

    it's only logical that it steals other heroes's ulti it is your ultimate!
    so you don't have a normal ultimate but you can get one!
    and you can also use other weaker spells such as vengeful's magic missil or lich's frost nova

    ReplyDelete
  133. can someone pls answer me?
    i mean what is it with noobs and the maelstrom for rubrick?
    he's a support spell caster not a physical damager he nneds to cast spells not hit normal attacks!
    and why would any one buy vanguard for this hero?
    oh and for refresher the smart ass who explained forgot that this strategie is useless it depends on what the other team has cast!
    i know you won't get it at first but let me explain
    you expect something like:you have frost nova then you steal something like rhasta's first skill then you use refresh and you use rhasta's first skill again and you steal something like serpent wards right?
    but in fact it will go like this you have a spell like frost nova then you use it you get a weaker spell  because other team's spellcaster will die quickly then you use your spell steal on a tanker like axe(what are you gonna steal i mean you are not gonna steal his ulti because if you steal it you will have to run like an idiot in the middle of the team battle to use it and you will surely get killed!)so to continue you will steal a tanker or a carry's weak and lame spell to use it twice with refresher than you get a carry's spell(because most likely only carry will survive at the end because they have good escape mecanisme like invisiblity or blink or simply haste!) and you can do nothing  with a  carry's escape spell like for example you are not gonna use blink on anti-mage or even worse if for example viper had a  lother and he was the last one standing all you can steal is his first spell! hahaha and you are very slow in attacking so it won't help so next time someone calls another a noob make sure to think better and you will realize that no one is better than the other
    oh and most pro's are noobs but they're lucky and they have good team and heroes so it's easy to win!
    Note: I said most and not all

  135. first of all. MAELSTROM not MAELSTORM. Rubick is not a DPS type of hero. He's a spell caster. 2nd. DONT USE TREADS ON RUBICK. He's a SPELL SPAMMER. You'll need mana to do it.And as you said, he's a support hero.So Use arcane boots. TANGA MO TALAGA! PATI NANAY MO BINOBOBO KA NA

  141.  instead of phase boots, use arcane boots!! instead of mjollnir, use eul's scepter of divinity,!! and last one instead of vanguard, use shiva's guard!! rubick is a support hero and not a melee/DPS hero..

    ReplyDelete
  142.  whats the use of desolator if you have -damge (effect of 2nd skill) you are a support hero and not a melee, better use eul's scepter of divinity instead of deso!!

    ReplyDelete
  143.  Your one of them!!

    phase boots!!? why don't use arcane instead, much better mana that you can use on early game.

    bkb!!? you already have the 3rd skill, instead use eul's scepter of divinity, such a useful item for a support hero. you should be supporting your team by having supporting items like urn of shadows or pipes and in addition of spamming your skills.

  150. Why you all keep on fighting like sh*t?

    Just keep in mind that Rubick is a SPELL SPAMMER, so at least, got Bloodstone, Dagon, Ethereal Blade or Guinsoo, and BKB for uninterrupted spell barrage.

    Cause Rubick is a freaking scary hero on early game, so go offensive and send enemy back quickly as possible to their fountain then u can have the whole creep on current lane as fast money for ur item build.
