    Since I can't post more than 5 attachments and neither post links, the following is going to be text-based:
    2 duck boots, 2 minor totems, runes of the blight, health potion
    bottle, steamboots, portal key/shrunken head, shieldbreaker/wingbow/geo/frostwolf/riftshards

    II. Introduction
    I will leave out all the blabla about his starting stats and his story, so you have to read less not really interesting stuff. If you wanna read up on those check

    Soulstealer is a very strong hero, who has a strong early and mid game and still is useful in the later game.
    Pros and Cons:
    + very strong early-/midgame
    + arguably THE best mid hero
    +one of the best farmers in the game
    + strong ultimate
    + 900 AoE magic damage with hands from level 7 on

    - quite squishy and no escape
    - tapers off in the later game
    - no crowd control (= stun/silence)
    - VERY low base damage without souls which are also neede to ult effectively [<3 Zo8]
    - needs an item to get a good positioning

    III. Skillbuild and -description

    hand.jpgDemon Hand:
    This is one of your most powerfull skills. It basically has 3 75/150/225/300 magic damage, 275 radius nukes for 75 mana each included in one ability. As for the range, you will find out, that it will be very hard to hit them, if you dont have much experience. Generally you should think, the first one (Q, 200 range) hits anything right in front of you, the second one (W, 450 range) hits anything approximately in your autoattack range, and the third one, well, anything beyond that. I might add pictures here, when I have the right to post links and stuff. Always keep in mind that they go in facing direction. One way to get the proper facing is to right click the enemy before casting. The best way to land Demon Hands though is: PRACTISE, PRACTISE, PRACTISE!
    Note, that you can also kill a whole creepwave until minute ~32 with 2 demon hands.

    soulsteal.jpgSoulsteal:
    This skill adds 2 bonus base damage for every lasthit you perform up to 8/15/23/30 souls (=60 damage), making you an incredibly hard autoattacker as soon as you have them and in conjunction with Soulstealer's good attack animation, a lasthitting beast, once you have your souls. Remember, that if you die, you lose HALF of your souls, gimping your ultimate and damage, so try to farm them up again (preferrably with hands), before entering battles after you died.

    How is Soulstealer strong early game???? ....
    One of the lowest attack damage, one of the lowest health pools? Stun him, gank him - he's dead. He has no escape mechanism. Delete your guide, or think what you are writing. Because you're giving false info
