Kill Roshan at Level 1 Hero Line Up - DotA-Blog

Kill Roshan at Level 1 Hero Line Up

Nowadays, it's possible to take Roshan at level 1 and get the advantages over the enemy. Imagine when you're start your match with one of your friend already on level 5? Great isn't it? But taking Roshan at level 1 is also risky. If you failed or taking too long, you can start the match under leveled. Here is 7 line up who can kill Roshan even before the creeps appear:

Old School Line Up

+ 2 random heroes

Those 3 is the best combination to kill Roshan. Fury Swipes on Ursa, Frost Amor casted on Syllabear Bear and that's all. But if you pick these hero, i guess most of the team will realize what's your plan ^^ And here's some more combination that's less obvious for Roshan at level 1.

Line Up 1

Zeus : Arc Lightning, to get rid of Roshan's linken ability so Panda can use Drunken Haze
Panda : Drunken Haze, make Roshan's attack miss
Enigma : Eidolons, taking from Furion summons
Furion : Force of Nature
Lycan: Howl, adding damage to all the summons and heroes

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, heroes have random stat items

Level 5 Candidates: Zeus

Line Up 2

Broodmother : Incapacitating Bite, slow
Dazzle : Shadow Wave, heal
Shadow Fiend : Presence of the Dark Lord, reduce armor aura
Templar Assassin : Meld, reduce armor
Alchemist : Acid Spray, reduce armor

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates:Broodmother, Shadow Fiend, Templar Assassin

Line Up 3

Ursa Warrior : Fury Swipes for obvious reason, stacking damage
Crystal Maiden : Crystal Nova, slow effect
Omniknight : Purification, heal
Witch Doctor : Voodoo Restoration, heal
Skeleton King : Vampiric Aura

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates :Ursa Warrior

Line Up 4


Juggernaut : Healing Ward, heal
Lich : Frost Armor, slow Roshan when hit the tanker
Tidehunter : Gush, reduce armor
Vengeful Spirit : Wave of Terror, reduce armor
Rhasta : Shackles, remove Roshan's linken for Gush

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Lich, Juggernaut

Line Up 5

Beastmaster : Inner Beast, attack speed aura
Drow Ranger : Frost Arrows
Lina : Light Strike Array, stun
Venomancer : Plague Ward
Abaddon : Aphotic Shield

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Beastmaster, Lina

Line Up 6

Rooftrellen : Living Armor
Morphling : Morph, max the Agility for max damage
Syllabear : Summon Spirit Bear, tanking damage
Enchantress : Nature's Attendants, heal
Viper : Nethertoxin, add damage

Both RoB and Headdress are used for their auras, Stat items for hitter

Level 5 Candidates : Viper

Of course you can switch hero between that line up who has the same role. What do you think? If you have another line up, share it here! ;)

    interEsting to know

  3. Killing Spree.............

  4. Furion gets Sprout in line-up one? Really?

  5. Cool. Level 1 Roshan is so sweet :)

    Something is bothering me though. The scrolling bar at the bottom of the page seems to be shrinking/extending randomly. Its kinda annoying :P

  6. Yeah, happening for me too :)
    Check it out, admins!

  7. pesty snow keeps falling out the screen and shifting the bar,LOL!!!
    but thanks for the post! :)

  8. Woops, it should be leveling Force of Nature. My bad -_- Fixed!

    About the random shifting scroll bar, it's from the snow effect. If many people doesn't like the snow effect, i will remove it though ^^;

  9. dam it still so many way .. so far i only know about 3 lines up.. btw thx this will be nice info hehehe :P

  10. how about lich,ogre magi,ursa,vengeful spirit and omnihkight?jope u all can give comment :D

  11. actually lich is a must. the other 4 heroes i would go for (taking into consideration that it makes the heroes viable in the game) shadow fiend (carrier) and beastmaster (roamer). ursa and probably enigma. bm's hawk spawns eidolons and ursa swipes. fiend's armor reduction. lich armor.

  12. haha love it! one line up that is veeeery interesting is ES furion zeus tinker and windrunner. Planet-x used this against aeon. if you wanna see how it´s done:
    dont mind the music

  13. 3Hero line up here:
    Ursa Warrior: Normal
    Syllabear: Spirit Bear, Tanking damage
    Venomancer: Plague Ward Tanking damage
    Created by: -MooN-

  14. (i'm davidwhY) Hahahah, what the heck I was looking for something else and found this.. A few things, mainly to clarify: I was just trying to find any random combos that would work (with the main idea being to find the least obvious choices possible), which is how I posted 7 replays total, 6 as mentioned above, (all different heroes/no repeats) and one other not mentioned with only 3 heroes (no extra gold) - lich bear ursa.

    However, with the exceptions of a few of those heroes, which were just random fill-ins e.g. viper, most of those heroes can be combined to rosh successfully. Key is to pick your hero and buy items ASAP. If you're roshing in a pub game, only a few people need to pick, e.g. picking ursa bear and lich, the other two can random (type it asap) as this is likely to be faster, since you have more gold for stats/damage.

    An important thing to note is that it is usually best to have 2 melee, otherwise roshan's stomp can be very annoying/slow you down.

    For the replays I posted see

    Finally, some of the level 5 candidates lists are imcomplete, e.g. morph, enchant, tree, panda etc all are viable candidates. And another thing is often you can share between good candiates to get level 3 each etc too.

    Good luck, if anyone has questions feel free to ask

  15. Oh, and sprout is ok and probably would have worked since it stops roshan attacking any of your heroes for 3.5 seconds, but obviously forces is better for tanking/doing damage

  16. Oh, sorry one last thing, you did probably need forces of nature because otherwise enigma can't make summons lol, so yeah. Tip cast forces at fountain as you need the mana

  17. Anyone knows if the Huskar's orb workds against Roshan?

  18. oh, thats really good post.
    anyway, could lycan kill roshan in lvl 1 solo?

  19. Well....i can kill roshan with ONLY 3 heroes at lvl 1.....Ursa : Fury Swipes/Venomancer : Plague Ward/Syllabear : Summon Bear for tanking....but it has some kind of getting mana items for venom and using your wards in JUST the right place to take aggro from the bear

  20. I think this is better Venomancer Syllabear Lycan Dazzle Vengeful Spirit.Veno Plauge.Syllabear bear.lycan wolf.dazzle greave.vengeful -armor.hehe

  21. Our line up:

    Skeleton King: Vampiric Aura, switch with bear when low life(2nd tank)
    Syllabear: Summon Spirit Bear, 1st tank
    Lich: Frost Armor, target skill to both tankers(slows roshan)
    Venomancer: Plague Ward, Additional Damage

    (Last Hero Either: Omniknight or Enchantress)
    Omniknight: Purification, To heal(Can be a 3rd tank)
    Enchantress: Nature's Attendants, Heal

  22. well jarakhal can kill him lvl 9 if he has DD and here are his items treds, HoD, stout shield, thats it

  23. best line up,
    mangix- haze
    sylla - bear
    ursa - swipes
    veno - wards
    dazzle- heal

  26. Enigma makes eidalons from beastmasters hawk
    Beastmaster with two stouts, tanks damage

    you'll need one salve for the beastmaster

  28. It’s rare that you find a louis vuitton bag can be so bright and stunning in red. It is in unique fashion. louis vuitton damier neverfull mm has launched repeatedly lv handbag in this kind of red. All of them are so stunning, for example the Louis Vuitton purses. This time, I am so struck by the truly bright Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Sunset Boulevard Bag. I know well that maybe you don't like this kind of red, or rather, think Chanel Lambskin 2010 New Flap Bag(Fuschia) disgusting. However, that’s why I love it so much. In addition, the style is full of distinct personality.

  29. can i ask something?
    where will icefrog put icarus the phoenix int, agi or str?
    when you look at it icarus is like a int hero but the int tavers are already full, i dont think he/she will be an agi or str hero.
    (sorry for bad english)

  30. icarus will be put on gay tavern

  31. Rooftrellen, Rexxar, Syllabear plus random heroes, say Vengeful and Invoker?

    Nobody's gonna guess Lvl1 Rosh with Invoker on the team. Command aura and total of 22 damage from
    Exort + Stats along with Rexxar's AS aura can bring him down pretty quick.

    Btw, Spawn the Bear immediately to get another one ready after cd. :D

  32. damn noob....

    stop playing dota noob,, nobody needs you...

  33. hey anonymous,,, better shut up and eat your aszz cause you aint going nowhere. . . noob,, that's why its called level one and minus and plus armor skills are most useful.. noob. . .

  34. DK,Beast master(attack speed),VS(damage),Shadow field9Reduce armoor),Crystal

  35. [happy-feet]..bry0n!üSeptember 25, 2011 at 2:48 PM

    that  line up was so dumb

  36. best is lich,rexxar,enigma that heroes are in the trilane and add 2 heroes that is alchemist (mid/hitter) and akasha in top or solo lane!

  37. hey guys this is a effective line up.
    drow ranger, vangeful spirit, moon fang, syllabear, necrolyte. then after killing roshan take advantage and take mid. and im sure 15 mins. below game gg :))
    i always use it in RGC cm mode :))

  38. auras for drow, vs, luna. and heal for necro, and bear for tank.
