i just play preto with sight, stun(card) and morph(the one preto hides and target becomes preto forgot the name)
First poison with stun
if you can line (what i recommend) lvl fast and also if you have time creep the 2min creeps around your line
Use the morph skill as much as possible on heros who are lining before you, they got hit by outpost and they die.
You dont always get the kill but they are gone for an amount of time.
And in that time you can lvl and line easy
Becareful about gang rapes(whole team target's you to kill you)
Try to see then as soon as possible and use morph as they are in your outpost range and u might survive
Keep in mind preto is range hero and easy to kill for a hero like mitsuki so keep range and if players get to close RUN
To get your range back or morph fast but that is not something i recommend to do all the time
because you get predictable then and they use scroll or other ppl just dispel the target
Preto need atack speed and dmg in items, start with poison because in the begin heros are very vunerable for it then
also int staff is a very good item for preto(55% atack speed and dmg)
Int ring if you have a lot of money but int armor is better (gives you also hp)
Preto is a hero where timing is most important
when to use what skills means the diffrence between death or victory
Think this helps
i am no pro but this is how i play him
Ppl can add or comment if i play it wrong
Preto should just be played for super high dmg, which means that you have to take the clone, which actually doubles your dmg, and also sometimes can save your life, if some funny guy uses his ult on your image xD
Because your clone got the completely same stats as you, he also got the exactly same atkspeed, which means that you can use cancel attack with preto and his image at the same time.
Preto also has the magic attack type, which means that he does extra dmg when attacking buildings. Together with his clone and a little bit of cancel attack you can destroy buildings in a few seconds in end game.
So for skills you should go for the passiv, which helps you a lot in point of avoiding ganks and additional dmg, the clone skill, and the stun cards. When using stun with preto, always try not to use all of the stun charges, try that you have always have 1 left, so the rest of the charges can recharge way faster. Only use all the stun cards when you know for sure that you can either save your life with it, make a hero kill with it, or make that guy use his port, or when u can save a teammate with it.
For Preto Itembuild you should aim for early poison sword, and the 300 hp boots, for being able to get away from early ganks / ults and making sure that you won't die. After getting boots you can just go for combined poison, then dagger of violent wind. You should always aim for high attack dmg with preto, even though I think its not good to play a crit build with him, just get flat attack dmg / attack speed items and just a little bit of hp so that you don't instantly die. But actually your main defense is, that you are doing tons of dmg with your clone, its a little bit like 2v1, as the clone does 100% of your dmg.
Using ult with preto should be done carefully, as you can easily be killed while doing the ult. Preto ult is quite a powerful tool when used correctly. You can use it, while your team destroy a tower or a mob barrack or whatever, so the enemy team can't stop you from doing so. You can also use it, when you see that one of your teammates is getting chased down by enemy heroes, to stop them and save your teammate.
