I hope it helped everyone to improve their gameplay with this funny hero. He is a great allied for any team.

Also don't forget to rate this guide and If anyone know to add the icon/image of the items/heros please put it on the comment.


You should take the middle lane because it gave you fast xp and the advantage of getting runes and ganking. If cant just play as supp or a offlaner, but for that you will need to plant some wards in the enemy jungle to prevent get ganked.
You should focus ganking because you need have gold and xp advantage at your favor and buying time for the carry of your team. Even if playing as pusher.
If you failed ganking early, don't worry, you scale well into mid-late game but now you will need to stay with all the team and letting the role of ganker.
At this moment you will be very squisy if you failed or raping the enemy team.


I only take one level of Telekinesis because leveling it only will increase 0.25 lift/stun per level and it not worth. Instead taking stats will improve your survability and giving you more health, mana and armor (by the agility). Also getting stats buying a early sage mask of void stone will increase a lot your mana regeneration.
I take Null Field later because it will only increase by 5% the magic resistance, and only it will work well when everyone is in high level. Spell Steal is taken whenever is possible, but when you found, that you are the first dying get instead of lvl 2-3 of Spell Steal to Null Field or Stats.
I also like playing him as pusher because he is extremely fast clearing waves of creeps with fade bolt and a AoE spell.


-Amazing AoE Damage Spell
-Have a Disable
-Free magic resistance for the team
-The best ultimate that everyone want
-Turn the tide of the battle
-Decent pusher depending your build

-Low Health and Agility (Armor)
-Low Movement Speed
-Difficult to Master
-Dependant to certain items to release all your potential


This is my first guide and I believe it will help everyone, from beginners to experienced players.
Rubick is my favorite hero because he had the power to turn the tides of the game if played well, and he is so popular by his "Spell Steal", making he a full of surprised, but he is countered by his low health. But when you mastered him, he will be like a piece of cake.
