DotA Secrets FeedHello Dotaters, :P

I’ve prepared a compilation of the best hero strategy guides available on the internet. I have included a link to every guide I read/reviewed, and rated the best guide out of them all. These guides might be from any website/blog on the web.

The heroes have been arranged in alphabetical order according to their name. If you’re can’t find a hero, kindly use the Search Feature (“Ctrl+F”) of your Internet Browser.

Please check the first comment for last update details. :)

If you want to get your guide reviewed and listed here just add a link to your guide in the comment section. Note that the comment would not be instantly approved as comment with links are considered spam by wordpress. To keep updated with the new guides, Follow me on Twitter. You can also quote someone else’s guide that you found good. Thanks for the help. :)

KINDLY REMIND ME WHENEVER AN EXISTING GUIDE UNDERGOES MAJOR UPDATES. Thanks again! :)

Criteria of evaluating a guide:

- Guide updates i.e. “KEEP THINGS FRESH”.
- Understandability of the guide i.e. it should be easy to understand for beginners also.
- Keep things short… just include the ‘guide’ part into the guide and hyperlink to the various ‘mechanics’ parts whenever something needs an explanation.
- Gives various techniques of gameplay i.e. ganking, getting out of sticky situations, etc.
- Quality of Videos/Replays attached.

Bold Links indicate BEST strategy guides, Normal Links indicate other strategy guides. Do not link goodness of a strategy guide with it’s order in the links!

  2. Skavi says:

    I see you have taken guides from all over the net. Why not start a community for dotasecrets? Guide making could also be done and discussed more easily in a forum.

    Skavi

  3. Phoenix says:

    I started a dummy forum (see http://dotasecrets.forums-free.com/ ) earlier and people did sign up for the forum but… most never posted! I mean most people like to read the stuff and carry on! You see, this blog has a great readership but comments, that’s the tough part, comments are 1-2 per day! Maybe, there’s something with my posts that I don’t provoke readers to interact. Anyways, I love my readers whether they comment or not and most of all I LOVE DOTA! So it’s like I’ll blog on DotA till eternity. (well that went a little too far, or maybe much toooo far :P )

  4. Skavi says:

    Hmm.. Maybe a website or a forum or a blog that has more useful information and recourses, then it will be acknowledged by users around the net. So, I guess the “eternal blogging” will pay off eventually when people will realize your efforts and others’ efforts. (By the way, I am registering on the site and I will take a look around)

    Skavi

  5. CF[X] says:

    nice compilation, you should make a thread on DS and i will help you petite so it gets stickied. however, some of those you mention as the best tag are not worth it, including my brad guide(sigh). you shouldn’t care to “please” some people, this is your site, you make the law. guides that deserved top should be of great quality in contents, and not cosmetic

    kudos for the efforts

  6. Phoenix says:

    Seriously dude, I never ever meant to please anybody. Your guides are worth the rating! And frankly speaking, I did write “No guide worth BEST” against Bradwarden once but on second thought, I approved it to be the best coz you just focused on the right part. Dagger’s the best thing Brad can use and initiating is what you focused on.
    Besides, your guide is the BEST coz others are not so good. :P

    Speaking of DS, I dunno… you already pointed out that I can make my own rules here but writing on DS will make a strong community… will decide upon this later.

    And I could really use some pro suggestions on which guides are not really that great. o.O [but don't expect me to follow every suggestion]

    n Thanks for the extolment. :)

  7. dare18 says:

    Good job man….im joining your site too…let’s see what we can do

  8. Phoenix says:

    Heheh! :)
    Thnx dude. I wonder what’s going in your mind…

  9. jeezuz says:

    thx a lot for this work man

  10. Rmndk™ says:

    Basicly, This site only for Playdota Guides since what i see just a bunch of Playdota Guides

  11. Phoenix says:

    It so happens that PlayDota guides are the most updated among all other sites. And if you check out, I’ve probably listed more guides from dotastrategy.com than from playdota.com, it’s just that many of them are outdated… now you don’t want to learn the ‘old’ storm spirit, do you???
    If you’ve some good guide in mind which you didn’t find here, please give me the link and I shall review it.

  12. ronnie4u says:

    Totally AWESOME!

  13. randon87 says:

  15. Phoenix says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa………………………….
    The guide’s huuuge, will eat at least an hour or so! :(
    But anyways, thanks for telling :) I’ll be updating the complete list of guides this week probably, so keep checking. :D

  16. Phoenix says:

    Some college work popped up and now I’ll be busy for more than a week. Expect an update to this only after Christmas. :(

  17. Phoenix says:

    5 guides I read there were all copies from dota-allstars.com and I take it for granted the rest were too. Thanks for the info but I want genuine guides.

  18. Art Of War says:

    Your best piece of work ever! :D

  19. quale says:

    hi phoenix! i can’t help to notice that the Roaming Earthshaker guide has a wrong link. hahaha! anyway, you may need to add some new, good and updated guides such as rjay’s Magnus guide. more power to your blog!

  20. Phoenix says:

    Thanks quale. I dunno why I never noticed it before. Anyways, I’m still to review the new guides and will add them soon. :)

  21. SURUBS says:

    nice work. one observation: techies, “Goblin Techies, links are fixed by 1Mangoo @ dota-allstars.com” leads nowhere. Sorry for my english, writing from Ecuador. Keep writing plz!

  37. karretsos says:

    Dude can you take a look at this guide about Yurnero ? It is a really good one and the author is using some nice in-depth mechanics. I find it the best Yurnero guide allong with Guerilla Warfare.

    http://www.playdota.com/guides/poetry-in-motion

  38. Phoenix says:

    Thank you for reporting the guide karretsos. I’ll read it as soon as possible and add it in the list. :)

    EDIT: Ah oh! I’ve read this guide a long time back already… added it as one of the best guides but some time later people reported it to be a broken link and when I checked the guide was gone o.O Not sure of the reason but it was probably due to the author (ikrivetko) removing the guide temporarily. Anyways, adding the guide now. Again, thanks for the report.

  39. iKrivetko says:

    It wasn’t deleted, probably it was moved from drafts to publshed guides.
    Thank you for the attention.:D
    BTW, I Shot The Sheriff is a collaborative guide (Piejonk, me and FunnyWarfare)

  40. Jake says:

    Great new guide on dotastrategy.com for slarder…seems to have everything necessary to denote a best guide tag

  41. Phoenix says:

    Will check but in the next update… at least a month or so. :| Thanks for reporting though. :D

  42. keybi says:

    Thanks for adding my guide, first time saw it, I know my tiny guide can’t make it. LOL

    GJ!

  53. Phoenix says:

    Thanks for the appreciation. Btw, guests are only allowed to post comments here. :P :)

  54. Lou Sobie says:

    Interesting article and one which should be more widely known about in my view. Your level of detail is good and the clarity of writing is excellent. I have bookmarked it for you so that others will be able to see what you have to say.

  55. Hey d64 kcb, very interesting post, it really got me thinking. Thank you. ml5yx

  56. BabyRaper says:

    This is my first time I have visited your site. I found a lot of interesting information in your blog. From the tons of comments on your posts, I guess I am not the only one! keep up the good work.

  57. Buraim says:

    hi thanks for the blog.

  58. HerpDerp says:

    I saw a more recent Windrunner guide that you might want to check out. Doesn’t have a lot of videos, but the guy seems to have a grasp on the hero.

    http://www.playdota.com/guides/make-your-own-path

  59. Phoenix says:

    Thanks for the link there Herp. I can’t be sure but I’ll update the whole thing this weekend. :)

  60. Phoenix says:

    Sorry but I was unable to find time to update the post. I’ll try to do it this weekend. :|

  61. Phoenix says:

    Hi Herp. I guess I won’t be updating this post anytime soon. Currently I play very less dota and I’ve become more busy with the job n stuff. :|

    Regards,
    Phoenix.

  62. Thanks really help alot

  63. Calvin says:

    forums who go above the exact same themes? Many thanks!

  64. Phoenix says:

    Sorry Calvin but I didn’t get your question. Can you explain a bit more…

  65. I was just checking out Dota, thanks so much for the guides.

  66. cribs says:

    I am truly glad to read this website posts which includes tons of helpful facts, thanks for providing such data.

  67. Found a few of these guides really helpful. Working on creating new ones for DotA 2 now.

  68. Phoenix says:

    There’s not really a good repository of Dota 2 guides right now to choose from.

  69. Craig Scwartz says:

    Any chance we can get your opinion on a best Tuskarr guide?

  70. Phoenix says:

    Hi Craig,

    Right now I can find only two guides decent enough for reading:
    http://www.playdota.com/guides/adept-of-ice-tuskar
    http://www.playdota.com/guides/punch-em-in-the-face

    None of these two are worth calling the ‘best’. I would rather recommend you to find out how exactly all skills of Tuskarr work and try out different item builds in game to find out which one suits you the best.

  71. GLace says:

    Thank you so much

  72. C1sD says:

    The best site!
