Dota 2- Battlefury vs Maelstorm - Which Item to Buy? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 has many items that will allow you to farm very fast and prepare yourself for the mid and late game. Two of the most popular choices in this regard are Battlefury and Maelstorm. Both of these items are great but there is always one question that we need to answer - which one should we get?

So, let's take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of these items and see which one is better for a particular situation.

Advantages of Battlefury

First, this is perhaps the most popular item for every melee hero in Dota 2. Apart from raw damage, this item also providers cleave, which helps the hero to farm a lot faster than usual. As a result, you can often see players buying this item very early on in order to make the most out of it. However, after the recent changes, fury is no longer that cheap, which is why many people lean towards Maelstorm.

Having said that, Battlefury provides ore damage and a 100% cleave, which makes it the better option for most melee heroes.

Advantages of Maelstorm

The biggest advantage of this item over Battlefury is the fact that it's cheaper. This means that most heroes can buy at an earlier stage of the game and use it for longer. However, it provides less damage, and the lighting proc is not always there, so it's not as reliable in terms of its farming capabilities. Having said that, you can also upgrade it later on into a Mjolnir, which is a very powerful item.

Final Verdict

Buying one of these two items depends on the game itself. However, if you're playing a male hero, it's definitely better to go for a Battlefury because it's just more efficient. On the contrary, Range heroes are better off buying a Maelstorm.
