Hero Strategy

Use Blood Rite to secure range creep lasthits and damage the opponents at the same time.

Keep an eye on your movement speed. If you are fast, you can play more aggressively.

Max out your bloodrage by around level 7 as this is your main tool for farming and will synergize very nicely with maelstrom.

The opponents will often attempt to teleport out when you Rupture them. Call for an ally to help you out if you don't have a way of securing the kill yourself.

Make sure to Rupture high priority targets in the fights, usually mobile cores, especially with Black King Bar.

Counter Strategy

Thirst sustains Bloodseeker. Deal burst of damage to him so he can't lasthit creeps easily and regain HP.

Stay high on HP so that Bloodseeker doesn't become super fast.

When Ruptured by Bloodseeker, don't move too far and consider teleporting to base if possible.

Lotus Orb, Linken's Sphere and status resistance items are good at countering Rupture.
