Krobelus spent her living days as a fervent member of a cult of Death Sayers. Her belief in the ways of death and the perfect harmony it brings has given her dead spirit a chance to wreak havoc among the chaotic living. She uses her abilities to call upon carnivorous bats and long dead spirits to lay to rest all who still pump blood through their veins. She augments her powers through the use of witchcraft, and she is able to make opponents gape in fear, losing the focus needed to cast spells. She is devoted to death in all it's aspects, and would see all turned to ash.

the worst is lina i think, so slow backswing and projectile

186 By chaosfreak11 2009-12-05

One of the worst attack animations.

185 By antrology 2009-11-30

what items should i get for her from early to late?

184 By jovica 2009-11-30


The other team was bragging how they had won already... but we raped them tree would armour me and i would just ulti and he would ulti and then i focued on the luna and silenced jugg and he would die too.. if i was to die tree would just invis me..

What im saying s even with stupid items this hero rapes! just hp + mana gen iss all you need

183 By jovica 2009-11-30

I was playing lazy last night and got like 3 gg's and 2 sobis and no regen xD..

I was palying wiht my freind and he was tree.. ( his lazy items inspirted me.. Boots 3 tangoes and a ring of protection..)

We puched uer past and i replaced the gg's with 3 robes' then a finsihed of he orchid in lane xD..

I then got a mega kill and died sadly to a wr who used her skill number 3 (total counter to krob 3 secs of imunuty)

i then farmed 4 bracers and str treads.. i no i no very lazy but

182 By slyfe 2009-11-27

That happened to me too, i was with the same team as a korb with just bot, a bottle and a heart. She farmed it so fast lol. It was a good player.

181 By izzylicious 2009-11-26

i've seen this more than just once, get her basic items first like preservance, boots(w.e u prefer) then go straight with heart, plus a hood if many nukers, a fat riki couldnt take down krobleus with that build today and i came (slardar) and killed him in couples of hits with her hex and help. she can just stand in the middle of the clash and survive it all, thus giving the maximum usefulness for her ulti. was talking about getting a 2nd heart XD

180 By BlowThaCandlesOut 2009-11-26


I supposed you also downed the first tower with 1 hit, perma guinsoo-ed Roshan and crapped your pants becuz you were too awesome. And what's with

179 By kevenots 2009-11-25

I usually see a lot of ppl using lothars on this hero. gives you escape and chasing capabilities with her ulti.

178 By Seras54 2009-10-19

She's also extremely weak in a gank and lacks escape skillz

177 By shatter02 2009-10-19


176 By doubleOfletcher 2009-10-14

One of the best hereos out there.
I just played with her for the first time and got 3 double kills, 4 triple kills and 1 rampage. I also managed 22 hero kills without dying once

175 By EARTH_SHAKER 2009-10-05

I know that..

My build.. NOT IN ORDER


174 By Zorb effect 2009-09-22

Skill build:
1. Witch
2. Carrion
3. Carrion
4-5. Witch
6. Exorcism
7. Witch
8-9. Carrion

Just on a little side-note:
Did you know that witchcraft used to increase MS?

173 By Zorb effect 2009-09-22


She is absolutely INSANE pusher, early-game excellent harasser, and her ability fighting 1 on 1 is good. But she becomes weaker lategame.


Techies is equal slowest at 280 aswell.


Do you really need SnY? Euls and boots of travel, in my opinion with EoS, is good enough. Well, that's the way I build anyway.

1. 2 Bracers.
2. Boots of speed
3. Bloodstone
4. Euls
5. Eye of skadi / Finish boots of travel.

You probably won't get passed there, but just some luxuries:

172 By pixie 2009-09-22

holy shi 280 moespeed are u serious isnt that like the slowest of all the heroes?

171 By iNick 2009-09-19

Just so you know, I got SnY for Kroby once.

4xx MS with Euls.

170 By crisrael 2009-09-18

I didnt finish my post below. I know I could get Eul's to increase my movespeed but that's usually not in my build.

169 By crisrael 2009-09-18

The incredibly low movespeed really pisses me off. I'm just saying... I mean I know that pudge has it too but he can still catch hero's with hook and slow them a lot with rot. But this hero... omfg...

168 By B3y0nd_Un1qu3 2009-09-12
