Defenders 015: Tinker
November 24, 2011
Better late than never. Here’s your Tinker, Evermourn. Still accepting votes for the next hero in the series in the thread over at r/Dota2. Vote with your orange!
Tinker is another one of my favourite heroes, and unlike Axe, didn’t have an equivalent in HoN. There’s just something so satisfying about porting into a lane, pushing the hell out of it with March of the Machines, and teleporting out when enemy heroes show up, only to do the exact same thing in the opposite lane seconds later. I would usually build a pure pusher Tinker (laser and MotM, rush BoT then Manta, sheepstick), and people would tell me that I’m doing it wrong, but I never really cared.
All I cared about was killing towers, which is something I did with startling efficiency.
On the subject of pushing, who is your favourite pusher in Dota, and why? A close second for me is PL, but that’s a story for another day.
