Dota 2 Best Mars Builds

Mars is the latest Dota 2 Hero and he was introduced to Dota 2 in patch 7.21, during season 2019. Mars is a strong Melee carry which can also act as a fight initiator and disabler due to his powerful crowd-control kit. The Dota 2 Mars is a Strength hero which as we said, is great in terms of tanking physical damage fights and towers. Unfortunately, the Dota 2 Mars is vulnerable to magic damage, along with being attacked from behind and break spells. Building your Dota 2 Mars is going to be crucial in order to win games (be it normals or ranked), therefore we’ve written this Best And Strongest Mars Builds Dota 2 Detailed Guide which will teach you everything you need to know to build the strongest Mars for Mid, Off lane, Safe lane and support, especially if you’re a beginner.

What does Mars do?

Spear of Mars – Mars throws his legendary Spear with deadly precision, damaging each enemy unit it strikes dealing 100/175/250/325 Magic damage. The first enemy hero it hits is skewered on the spear, pushing it back until it reaches ability range 900/1000/1100/1200, a Tree or a cliff in which case it impales and stuns the hero for 1.6/2.0/2.4/2.8 seconds.

God’s Rebuke – Mars smashes enemies in front of him with his shield, knocking them back and damaging them with a critical hit based on his attack which deals 160%/200%/240%/280% critical damage. Bonus damage is added when hitting heroes and it has True Strike.

Bulwark (Passive) – Mars wields his massive shield to block a portion of each physical attack when hit from the front (25%/40%/55%/70%) or sides (12%/20%/27%/35%).

Arena of Blood – After a short formation time, Mars summons a big arena lined with undead warriors of the Ash Legion, which block enemy attacks and movement. Enemies can’t walk out of it without “BKB” , and can’t attack you or your teammates if they’re outside the arena. Enemy heroes near the inside edge of the arena will be attacked by warrior spears, dealing 150/200/250 magical damage and knocking them back. A thing to note is that your allies can freely walk out of the arena.

Dota 2 Best Mars Safe Lane Build

Items

Starting Items

Full Build

The Mars Safe Lane Full Build items are sorted from an order of importance (Treads first item, Shiva’s Guard Last item)

Treads are great because they give Strength which goes very well with Mars’s passive, after that Drum of Endurance is crucial because Mars needs a lot of mana which will help you clear and farm really well. The third item is Desolator, it works really well with the Mars W and it will allow you to one-shot waves. Black King Bar, Kaya and Sange and Shiva’s Guard are items which buying order you’ll have to think of yourself because not all games are identical and in some you wont need the Spell Immunity early on, and you might need damage or something else.

Ability Order

The Dota 2 Mars Safe Lane Build Ability order is quite simple, put one point into each spell. After that max out God’s Rebuke. When you can’t place any points into God’s Rebuke, level Spear of Mars. Bulwark gets maxed last.

Dota 2 Best Mars Middle Lane Build

Items

Starting Items

Full Build

The Mars Middle Lane Full Build items are sorted from an order of importance (Phase Boots first item, Shiva’s Guard Last item)

Phase Boots are great because they allow you to chase down enemy Heroes quite easily. And generally, mobility is very important on Mars because you have to plan ahead and angle your Spear of Mars in order to attach enemies to trees. Drum of Endurance is crucial because Mars needs a lot of mana which will help you clear and farm really well and the movement speed along with attack speed is even stronger. The third item is Radiance, taking advantage how tanky Mars is, you’ll be able to easily 1v1 enemy midlaners and not to mention Radiance will be extremely strong in teamfights as you’ll annoy enemies pretty easily. Black King Bar, Kaya and Sange and Shiva’s Guard are items which buying order you’ll have to think of yourself because not all games are identical and in some you might need the extra damage from Sange or if you’re versus high Magic dealers take BKB.

Ability Order

The Dota 2 Mars Middle Lane Build Ability order is primarily the same as Safe lane, put one point into each spell. After that max out God’s Rebuke. When you can’t place any points into God’s Rebuke, level Spear of Mars. Bulwark gets maxed last.

Dota 2 Best Mars Off Lane Build

Items

Starting Items

Full Build

The Mars Off Lane Full Build items are sorted from an order of importance (Phase Boots first item)

Phase Boots are great because one again they will allow you to chase down enemy Heroes quite easily and if you’re out of mana you can move out of fights without many problems due to your high tanking capabilities. As a second item you’ll want to get Vanguard because it will allow you to tank up many hits and with the way damage reduction works with Mars’s passive you’ll be taking close to no damage in most cases from right clicks. You can then upgrade to a Crimson Guard or simply go for Vladimir’s Offering because it is a very good item relevant in the current meta and then upgrade to CG later on. After that, the next three items depend on what exactly you need to be doing for your team. If you need to initiate fights– go for a Blink Dagger, if you just need to keep your allies alive or tank even more, go for Soul Crest or Pipe of Insight. In case you have trouble versus magical heroes, take BKB.

Ability Order

The Dota 2 Mars Off Lane Build Ability order is primarily focused around maxing out Spear of Mars after you’ve unlocked all the spells by placing one point into each spell. After that max out Spear of Mars. When you can’t place any points into Spear of Mars, level God’s Rebuke. Bulwark gets maxed last.

Dota 2 Best Mars Support Build

Items

Starting Items

Early Game

Full Build

The Mars Support Full Build items are sorted from an order of importance (Tranquil Boots first item)

Tranquil Boots will allow you to stay on the map and continue trading, then you can grab Magic Wand so you don’t have mana issues anymore. After you’ve got these, there is no specific item priority anymore although I’d go for Meteor Hammer and Blink Dagger for the extra crowd control and initiation. Next items decide for yourself, Lotus Orb, Force Staff,  Glimmer Cape and Eul’s Scepter of Divinity are all good options for support Mars builds.

Ability Order

The Dota 2 Mars Support Lane Build Ability order is primarily focused around maxing out Spear of Mars after you’ve unlocked all the spells by placing one point into each spell, though instead of taking Bulwark first like the other Mars builds, we’ll be taking Spear of Mars first because it’s a great skill for early ganks and harassment. After that max out Spear of Mars. When you can’t place any points into Spear of Mars, level God’s Rebuke. Bulwark gets maxed last.
