Justification / Modifications:
This skillbuild is if you lane with a competent babysitter. You can set higher priority on Dissipate if you get harassed and/or ganked hardcore.

Lane Starting Items:
1x Runes of the Blight, 1x Healing Potion, Logger's Hatchet, Duck Boots

(Iron Shield >>) Lifetube >> Steam Boots >> Helm of the Black Legion

Iron Shield can be skipped if the game goes easy.

After Core:
(Nullfire Blade >>) Mock of Brilliance >> Behemoth's Heart >> Frostburn >> Barbed Armor >> Riftshards

Get a Nullfire after core if your team needs to counter Hellbringer, Hammerstorm or Jeraziah. Otherwise farm your Mock. Heart and Barbed Armor to make sure no one can kill you without dying first.
You can also Skip Mock, get Nullfire and then work for a Frostburn as an alternative route.

Alternative Items:
You can rush a naked Mock in pubs which will allow you to farm the rest much faster. In higher level games it is NOT recommended!

Roles: Hard-Carry, Initiator, Tank
Prefered Lane: Short
Difficulty: 3 - Medium
Farming capabilities: 1 - Poor
Item dependancy: 5 - Very Heavy
- Early Game / Lane Control: 1 - Poor
- Mid Game / Ganks: 2 - Weak (Ulti starts to becoma a viable tool)
- Late Game / Team Fights: 5 - Very Strong

Noteable +/- and synergies:
- Requires a lot of farm, turtle strat

- Your ultimate allows you to farm ALL THE TIME. This is what makes Sand Wraith arguably the strongest Carry. If a teamfight is happening just activate Mirage and you are right in the middle of it.
- Always Carry a TP!! When getting ganked while farming throw out a Desert's Curse (doesn't matter if it hits anything) and walk straight into the forest where they can't follow you. Then TP to another lane and continue farming.
