Dota Underlords Brawny Warrior Build

Underlords Brawny Warrior Build

The Brawny Warrior build in Underlords has always been one of the most under utilized team compositions in the game. However, since the most recent update and Brawny rework it is now more than a viable build.

This build relies on getting an Axe, Juggernaut, and Beastmaster early on to pad their kill stats. Doing so will help turn them into super tanks that are nearly invincible throughout the game.

The Brawny Alliance works like this: for every kill a brawny unit gets, their health will increase by 30 (2) or 60 (4) permanently. This can result in some 5,000+ HP units in the mid to late game. The build becomes even more tanky thanks to the Warrior Alliance.

Slardar and Tidehunter give us added protections against magic damage from mage team compositions. Troll Warlord, Slardar, and Tidehunter will be the main DPS dealers in this build throughout the game.
