Morphling Item Build
The Tango keep you in-lane until level 8 ideally (when you get Replicate and can use it to teleport back to your lane as soon as you've finished healing/ mana regenerating at base). Clarity ensures that you keep a Waveform in the pocket for your retreats, or ensures you can teleport to your replicate if you've already popped a waveform. The Gauntlets of Strength provide an INVALUABLE hp boost early game. I cannot stress enough how key they are. They are the difference between 1/10/2 and 8/2/6. I promise you this (that was two ends of my Morphling career, but within mere days of each other, and the 8/2/6 score has continued staying that way ever since I got gauntlets, they make THAT much of a difference). And finally an Iron Branch, I kinda figure you might as well, although feel free not to bother, I'm not entirely sure how key it is, I sometimes buy it, and sometimes don't.
Now, onto the Early game items, and their orders. I specifically picked them in order for you guys, so it's very simple. Perseverance seems like a large investment, but you buy it in 2 parts Ring of Health and Void Stone I think it's self explanatory which comes first (RING OF HEALTH!) although if you find yourself heavily harrassed and having to run back to base a lot, or on mid and struggling to get back and forth from the runes in time, you CAN get the Boots of Speed before mana void (but AFTER the ring of health). But normally the boots can wait. Yasha's next, and it's made up of 3 parts, Blades of Alacrity, Boots of Elvenskin and the Recipe: Yasha. Yasha gives you increased movement speed, attack speed, damage, just about everything you could possibly want out of a weapon, AND it works into Manta Style... What more could you want? You can buy these in any order (but with the recipe preferably last, unless you're about to die and have 700g, in which case, buy that bad boy and lose minimal gold!)
Onto Mid game items. At this point, you're very much put to the grind when it comes to getting the gold you need for the Ultimate Orb then Recipe: Linken's Sphere and the Boots of Travel. Stick to it, get those last hits (especially on towers if you can) and it'll come a lot sooner than you think (some kills should be coming your way too, although don't worry if they're not, it's all a matter of practice!) Linken's boosts your hp/mana gain, gives you targetted spell immunity for 1 spell every 20 seconds, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when you avoid Faceless Void's Ultimate or Pudge's hook, you'll be thanking me (and that Linken dude, whoever he is!) Now, the Boots of Travel. Probably the most controversial choice in my item build, but not for much longer! The boots of travel, when used in conjunction with Replicate give you total control/free-roam of the map, and with Morphling's TERRIBLE initial movespeed (285 Base), this will keep you faster (or at least almost as fast) as the other heroes out there with their Power Treads, Phase Boots and Arcane Boots. I can't really stress enough how helpful the Boots of Travel can be, just take my word for it, and thank me for all the free and fast regeneration you get late game (not to mention item pick-ups if your team has no courier!)!
My late game build allows you to start carrying your team like a total boss. Manta Style allows you replicates, which, if you boost your agility with morph (agility gain) first (don't forget to morph (strength gain) back before entering the fray or you WILL die!), will be killing, pushing, tower-destroying, money-making machines! If you don't morph them, they are still all of the above, just slightly more balanced, they also buy you time to get your replicated hero where you want him before escaping, or give you that edge on a straight waveform escape! The Helm of the Dominator is next, and needed for Satanic. It further improves your health gains by giving you lifesteal, which, when you pump more agility points and really start dealing out the pain, really makes a difference! If you manage to farm up Reaver and then Satanic you should be unstoppable, especially when you activate Satanic, and have 175% hp regen!
I hope this section has been as thorough and clear as possible, if you're confused about anything, just comment and I'll try and reply or make amends to he guide as required :)
