Dota 2 Lore - Drow Ranger:
Drow Ranger's given name is Traxex--a name well suited to the short, trollish, rather repulsive Drow people. But Traxex herself is not a Drow. Her parents were travelers in a caravan set upon by bandits, whose noisy slaughter of innocents roused the ire of the quiet Drow people. After the battle settled, the Drow discovered a small girl-child hiding in the ruined wagons, and agreed she could not be abandoned. Even as child, she showed herself naturally adept at the arts they prized: Stealth, silence, subtlety. In spirit, if not in physique, she might have been a Drow changeling, returned to her proper home. But as she grew, she towered above her family, and came to think of herself as ugly because her features were symmetrical and devoid of warts and coarse whiskers; estranged from her adopted tribe, she withdrew to live alone in the woods. Lost travelers who find their way from the forest sometimes speak of an impossibly beautiful Ranger who peered at them from deep among the trees, but vanished like a dream before they could approach. Lithe and stealthy, icy hot, she moves like mist in silence. That whispering you hear is her frozen arrows finding an enemy's heart.

  1. Lothars is essential after power threads to avoid early/mid game gangs, I usually go for yasha, morbid mask, crystalix ----> manta, domintor, dedalus, farm farm famr and get butterfly. Then you can go for BKB/assult/desolator - depends on the situation.

    Oh, and add force staff to that list ^^
