With that cheap setup you're already ready for the entire midgame ganking and tanking. You getto choose between the two cookiecutters:Assault Cuirassagainst those dps who happened to armseveral hammers and have +100 damage at this stage, or Sange & Yashaif you need that extrastrength and movespeed, coupled with a maim in the face right after your initial setup.Alternate builds such as shiva-refresher or arcane-refresher works, I'll give you that. Though Iwon't be covering those controversies in this cookie cutter guide. Caster tide build offerssomething completely different and we won't tread into that.
further justification for your cynicism and bashes
If you're tanking and ganking, your best bet is that you won't always walk out of there alive.Which is why I'm presenting a cheap and fast item build that comes in small pieces. I do notrecommend Tidehunter to stay back and farm up to whatever's suitable on him, because eventhough he has passives and actives that aids his fighting power, he's huge, melee, and does notlive up to a real lategame hero.Yes you can stay back and have some success with ricefarm Tide wearing cuirass, wielding bfuryand choking on HoT, but that comes at the expense your teammate's wealth and your opponentnot getting harassed the same way. Simply put, tide is not lategame, he's an early/mid tank andhis only lategame contribution is ravage.
Do not jungle.You can, but you shouldn't. You could creep pull as much as you want but do not dedicate your life to jungling, it will not work. Jungling requires you to level both your passives and even thenyou're not a magnificent jungler. Whats the use of your beard if you can't splash a good gushearly? Nothing. You need to be a pissed off hulk, and not a ricefarming pussy.
Tidehunter can setup things, though another source of damage is needed to fully utilize whatravage can do. Heroes like Lina or THD are great buddies who compliments your everycontribution. Clean-up crews such as Zeus or Lycan are also much needed after successfulravages and the like. Basically, most heroes who requires a meatshield compliments you nicely.Melee teammates will probably hate you though, they'd spend the majority of the time being pushed behind your ass while chasing a gushed hero.
