Guide

Introduction
In my opinion Swift Blade is one of the best early and late game heroes. His Blade Frenzy gives him the ability to kill early through mid game, also his Swift Slashes make him one of the best 1v1 heroes.


Pros/Cons
Pros:
[+]High Agility Increase.
[+]Amazing Ult that can kill most heroes one vs one.
[+]Amazing Level 1 Killing Ability.
[+]Magic Immunity During His Spin (for killing/ running away).

Cons:
[-]Low Str.
[-]Melee Hero.
[-]His Ultimate Targets all units in an area.


Skill Build
Skill Build:
1. Blade Frenzy
2. Way Of The Sword

4. Way Of The Sword
5. Blade Frenzy
6. Swift Slashes
7. Blade Frenzy
8-9. Way Of The Sword
10. Counter Attack
11. Swift Slashes
12-14. Counter Attack
15. Status Bonus
16. Swift Slashes
17-25. Status Bonus

Explanation:
Blade Frenzy is a great skill, you gain magic immunity and deal great damage, especially in early and mid game. So your primary skill should be Blade Frenzy. And Way of the Sword will be helpful a lot, when killing creeps, using ulti, killing players, it's very useful. And Counter Attack will be needed in late game, so leave it last.

Ok,

If you're w8 for answers/ideas lets go

Counter Attack its the secount better skill against ranged heros or meele with low damage, sometimes when u're laning with arachna, vindicator, engeener, fairy, dark lady (low level), legionnarie (low level) you will need this spell.

His point build its a big variable, if you're fightning against Kraken, Pestilence, Axe... common hits will not kill anyone, you must put Critical.

COUNTER STACKS WITH FROSTBURN / CRITICAL / 3 SKILL / BRUALIZER (low stunning rate) / MANA BURN and MEELE COUNTER STACKS WITH CLEAVE / CRITICAL / MANA BURN / FROSTBURN / 3 SKILL / BRUTALIZER ...

Physical skills should be countered too, so, panda, pestilence, deadwood will die easly

So, atribute bonus lots of times never be the best choise, for ALL Heroes

Atribute bonus should be putted by the last, ut if you have some bugged skill or you're trying to use Legionnarie's Terrify against Hight Healthed heroes (will not deals much damage) and this little exceptions

if you don't know the hero how can u do a tutorial about it?

To tell u the truth his guide is like Yureno's guide i read before i think he just copied it and change names.
Im sry if i sounding rude, but thats what it looks like this is not the greatest guide.
The animation part in the pros section gives u off :P
