Within 20 mins jugg can easily have a battle fury and Sange and Yasha if you know to use this hero. He can also heal his allies pretty quicky with his healing ward. His ultimate Omni slash makes him invulnerable to any attacks, and the skill tree talent has made him even more OP. Level 20 +1o armour is good and level 25 +5 Omni slashes make him so deadly.
