The Spirit Breaker
"Attack is the best defense."

Dire Strength Hero. Barathrum the Spirit Breaker is a lordly and powerful being, a fierce and elemental intelligence which chose to plane-shift into the world of matter to take part in events with repercussions in the elemental realm that is his home. To that end, he assembled a form that would serve him well, both in our world and out of it. His physical form borrows from the strengths of this world, blending features both bovine and simian—horns, hooves and hands—as outward emblems of his inner qualities of strength, speed and cunning. He wears a ring in his nose, as a reminder that he serves a hidden master, and that this world in which he works is but a shadow of the real one.

Charge_of_Darkness_icon.pngCharge Of Darkness

Breaker fixes his sight on an enemy unit and starts charging through all objects. All enemy units passed through will be hit by a Greater Bash, and the targeted unit is stunned upon impact. If the targeted unit dies, Spirit Breaker will change his target to the nearest enemy unit to that location.

Spirit Breaker will run through units, trees, structures and terrain.

Allies of Spirit Breaker (and he himself) will see an animation over the head of the target.

Any unit you pass through (300 radius) will proc a Greater Bash of Spirit Breaker's current level, if Greater Bash has been learned.

The charge stops if you click anywhere, or if you are disabled.

Spirit Breaker gains shared vision of the target for the duration.

If the target dies, the charge is transferred to the nearest valid target.

Some items are usable during the charge without interrupting it. Using Black King Bar right before you strike will ensure your charge doesn't get countered.
