Dendi's Signature Pudge Build Guide To Raise MMR


Danil "Dendi" Ishutin is mostly known for being one of Dota 2's most popular celebrities


However, Dendi is also well-known to be one of, if not the best Pudge player in the world. Additionally, his Pudge is also the mastermind behind TI3's infamous "Fountain Hooking" incident.

While Pudge is mostly known for his "Hook" ability, Dendi prefers to play a more hands-on approach with the hero by jumping in first-hand into teamfights and dismembering his enemies.

According to Dota2ProTracker, Dendi starts off by levelling Hook first. However, he also prioritizes on maxing out "Rot" and "Flesh Heap" first due to his aggressive playstyle.

As for his item builds, Dendi prioritizes building Phase Boots and Blink Dagger first. However, he also went for Black King Bar for spell immunity before moving on to other items.

As for talent tree upgrades, Dendi usually prefers most of the talents on the right side. However should the situation requires it Dendi tends to improvise with his choices.
