Carry is perhaps the most popular position in Dota 2. Carry heroes, as a rule, need to farm first, but at the end of the game, they are fully revealed potential. And so much so that they can single-handedly ensure victory for their team. This article will focus on how to farm quickly in Dota 2 in order to allow the character to prove himself as quickly as possible and what items will be needed for this.
How to farm properly in Dota 2?
To increase the speed and efficiency of farming, you need two key things: buying the right items and the correct movement on the game map.
Four tips on how to farm fast in Dota 2 for all stages of the game:
- – When you farm creeps, don’t push the lane. Getting the most experience and gold from the creeps at the start of the match will strengthen the advantage and increase your chances of winning. At the same time, it is important to keep the line at a certain place. It is best not far from the tower but outside the radius of its attack.
- – It is important to analyze the results in the lane. After winning, forced enemy leave the lane away, you should destroy the tier-1 tower, place a ward at the entrance to the forest, and farm neutral creeps. In this situation, the opponent will not access either the lane, where the creeps are far away, or to the river. If the team fights confidently on the lane, but the opponent does not leave it either, it is necessary to actively farm and last hit creeps, push the lane on the opponent and farm the nearest neutral camps. This will provide a gold advantage over your opponent. Finally, if you lost the lane, but the chosen hero makes it possible to farm the forest and ancients almost immediately, you should teleport there and start farming under the protection of the mid lane.
- – Buy items that will help you farm well. Quelling Blade is indispensable for melee carries. Battle Fury is also useful for this purpose. Maelstrom makes it possible to deal a lot of damage in a fight and kill creeps as quickly as possible. Mask of Madness increases attack speed and provides lifesteal. Optimal for neutral and ancient creeps farming. Radiance inflicts damage to opponents near the hero every second. Hand of Midas increases attack speed and allows you to kill a creep every minute and a half and gain extra gold and experience from it.
- – In Dota 2, it is important to use gold wisely. Yasha can be bought as quickly as possible. This is a necessary element for item Manta Style on Anti-Mage. Yasha will give an additional attack and movement speed. Do not forget about the timeliness of the Buyback. Buying Yasha before the twentieth minute, you will speed up the farm, and it sounds quite logical, and it makes no sense to buy Eaglesong without Buyback at the fiftieth minute to build Butterfly.
Farming neutral creeps the safest method to gain gold and experience in the game. In addition, the forest makes it possible to farm important items to play quickly.
Although being on the lane, you can provide real support to teammates, lane farming is much more dangerous. Therefore, it is important to constantly assess the situation, analyzing what maneuvers you can afford.
If we are talking about the economic side of the issue, then the lane is more profitable. However, it may be more convenient to farm the forest for this purpose in some cases since it is safer.
