Spirit Breaker Combo's
Hello Everyone, im new to the forum but not new to DoTA.
id like to address a topic that have been addressed many times on this site.
Spirit Breaker Balance.
as some of you know spirit breaker is at 4# ranked with 1.7m games played in total. the hero itself indeed uses broken teamwork against the team but some thing's about this hero are just absurd.
1. Empowering Haste gives 18% movement speed at level 4, did anyone said yasha?, this guy escape faster than he kills and can bash you if you try to stop him.
2.Charge of Darkness - 2.1 sec stun on lvl 4 ability and 700 movement speed in total which exceed the top movespeed in the game, goes through anything, can escape highground before anyone get the pleasure of handling him. also scales with greater bash which ill discuss later.
3.Greater Bash - 17% to knockback on attack is not a big deal, but what happens when you pair it with mask of madness? the chance is doubled. so what happens in reality is that you miss 40% of your attack's to bara greater bash and he kills you even if your a hard carry, which to remind you that bara is mostly an initiator and in no way a carry.
Nether Strike- probably what makes the argument here, stun him? go ahead, chain stun him for 5 seconds or what you can do, suddenly he appears and smashes you again, this time with mask of madness turned on, who has higher movespeed at this point? spirit breaker. teleport scroll? no problem just bash or nether strike. ghost scepre? nether strike force staff? nether strike.
spend money on warding the river while he comes at 700ms and dives your towers, good luck. bring team over? he bashes them all. didn't work for him? he just charge at a creep 20k miles away.
valve really gotta do something about this guy,its just a matter of time until every all pick games will have bara with mask of madness and you must speak your mind before it becomes an exploit.
with all the thing's i mentioned above you need to premahex him at lvl 16 or you can never kill him (theoretically.)
