So I haven't been in a game vs. Lycan in Dota 2 yet, but I bet I will be soon. How do you counter this hero? I remember that he was pretty much OP.
Ghost Scepter might work, but it doesn't last as long as Lycan's ulti lasts.
I guess you could gank him early to prevent his farming, but considering the wolves and his high health, it'll take a lot of work just to kill him a few times, which might not even stop his farm completely.
Maybe I should pick Void and try permastunning him or something?
Or Tiny + maxed Craggy Exterior to stun him whenever he attacks? Though I believe Craggy Exterior is blocked by BKB.
Fiend Grip through his BKB. A good grip will completely waste the entire duration of it. Asphyxiate him by putting a bag over his head. Completely nullify any attack damage (he used to have).
Any other hero that can keep him from moving for a long time or perma-stunning him is useful.
You could also just Finger/Laguna Blade him, he's not incredibly tanky-- just fast with high damage output. He can be surprisingly squish for a wolf-man.
Ward rosh around 16-20. He can't solo rosh as well as Ursa can, but he will want to try to do it. It takes him forever to get the job done.
Sneak behind him with an invis rune or some other type of stealth early game in his jungle and finish him off if he gets too low. Even he gets away it's terribly damaging if he has to go back to base to keep jungling.
