Hero Details:

Defeated in a battle long forgotten, this once great mage was banished to a tomb of ice for all eternity. For countless ages he lay in unbearable anguish until he was discovered by minions of the Lich King. In a vain attempt to gain favour with this ancient soul for his own purposes, the Lich King released him. But this soul no longer knew gratitude, it no longer knew friend from foe, it knew only pain. With its body long since decayed, the soul took up the only form it knew. Consumed with hatred, even a touch from this monstrosity causes agony. Able to conjure devastating ice storms with a mere thought and hurl soul-shattering bolts of frost seemingly impossible distances, this creature punishes all who dare to stand their ground against it.

Item Build

or 2x , 2x and 2x

In pubs you can usually go bottle from the start with no problem but in more serious games use the 2nd build to give greater last hitting power.

or and

These 2 items are the main items that enable Kaldr to be a pain for the other team. At this point Kaldr can appear anywhere on the map in a few seconds to assist in ganks, defend a teammate, or push/farm a lane. Once these items are bought Kaldr should never be sitting still doing nothing since he can push somewhere and teleport back to immediately get full hp/mana and be somewhere else in a matter of seconds.

Tip: Always spam your bottle when you teleport to the fountain to regen. This significantly reduces the amount of time needed to regen since you will get the bottle's regen plus the fountain's regen.




If the enemies have phychical dame dealers like Troll Warlord,Faceless Void, Spiritbreaker,Antimage,Rikimaru and etc. you need this item to protect you from their psychical damage

If they have more magic damage dealers like Demon Witch,Slayer, Lord of Olympia,Lich and etc. this item will give you big magic resistance.

This item is the best antimagic in the game.It makes you magic immune for 10 sec.

And another protective item that gives you:
+6 HP/sec regeneration ,+150% mana regeneration,+15 Strength,+15 Agility,+15 Intelligence and block the most targeted spells.


Best Allies

Cursers,stunners and slowers are good for Kaldr to pwn the enemies.Also casters and nukers will do +25% magic damage when Kaldr uses Ice Vortex.

Worst Enemies

Silencers,bashers,stunners,disabblers and the worst enemie for every intelligence heroe-Antimage are hard for Kaldr.He must evade them and in team fights he must attack them first!

It is not the best guide,but with it I have really good games with him!
