An outcast of the Spirithoof clan, Barathrum retreated in shame to the Ethereal Plane, feeding off wandering souls to sustain himself, and wandered aimlessly for centuries, alone and miserable. Found and recruited by the Lich King, Barathrum's uncanny speed and wraithlike powers have now been unleashed upon the Material Plane, his lantern able to project nether energy into enemies, sending them backwards with sudden force. With the ability to close the distance between himself and a target in seconds, Barathrum the Spiritbreaker is more than a match for anyone.
Loved by user-player and feared by opponent players. This hero pawns pubs but rarely sees competitive play. Here, I will try to discuss why and how he can be a viable pick. This guide is focused on letting players know how to play Barathrum correctly. Skill builds and item builds may differ from other people's opinion but what is important for me is to be able to impart my knowledge to other players.

~ConclusionSpiritbreaker is a great dps-ing hero. He can gank easily with his first skill and finish off with his ult. Give him items that increase his dps-ing ability but don't forget to give him survival items too. He needs to kill swiftly and survive after that 'coz he is a carry hero, therefore, needs items too. Though he can gank and kill with the right items, you still have to coordinate ganks with your teammates to avoid a failed gank and not be suicidal.
