I've been spamming necro/dk for offlane for about 5-6 weeks now and I don't know if I just got so comfortable with my build or what, but I feel underwhelmed trying this one. I've tried this build a few games now and while it feels strong during the laning phase and shortly after, it feels like the build doesn't scale nearly as well. Normally I build 2x null -> wand -> brown boots -> hood -> travels -> aghs shard -> SnK then depending on game i'll go like a shivas, bkb, aghs scepter (probably bad, but in some games turn me into a tank god when super ahead). Is this version (33's) meant to be more of a supporting cast to the other cores? Maybe scaling necro isn't as good as I feel it is and its just my practice on him from spamming so much? Are there other builds you would suggest for offlane necro for much lower level than 33's pubs? Appreciate any feedback thanks!
