Once a Queen of the Nerubians, she struck fear into the hearts of those she ruled. However she made the fatal mistake of falling in love with the renegade assassin Anub'Arak , and was banished from her own kingdom. Now she accompanies her true love in the battle of the Ancients, bearing his offspring as a symbol of her undying love. An expert in weaving webs of deception, she has the power of incapacitating those who dare attack her, and sowing in them the seeds of her offspring which then tear out of the corpse of the unfortunate victim. Her lust for battle helps her grow stronger and sustain herself, leading many to believe that her hunger for flesh, is insatiable..

s0h wat is d bezt item f0r br0dmama?

509 By Kaiman 2011-04-28

WTF sort of bullcrap invisibility allows someone without ANY truesight to keep attacking you once you turn invisible as long as they had issued an attack command while you were visible?

508 By mawhpawh 2011-04-04


If Broodmama got enough HP to survive the combo, and then comes out with 300-400 hp she will win.

507 By d3m0nix 2011-04-04

To the Cent vs. BM discussion. It's all situational who would win, depending on the item build. If BM has BKB BM wins 1v1.

506 By STGDS 2010-12-29

aoe spells are really good against brood, and aoe stuns are even better against brood

505 By Noo=b 2010-12-08

well duh...i am stating her abilities which help her survive == i am just supporting an argument sheeeesh don't be such a nag...

504 By discarderia 2010-11-29

How about getting dagon..thats better than most of these builds.

But really, how do you counter a level 6-tower down Brood? Wards may help against invis, but Brood still has decent regen from web (like DK) and a starting RoB keeps (stronger) spiderlings coming.

503 By RikuMan 2010-11-27

"1. he has a whopping 2.75 stun
2. two great nukes which is bad for brood's low health
3. he probably one of the beefiest heroes in all.
4. plus the return which could really heart DPSers..."

1. Spider is stunned so no lifesteal or orb for you.
2. Spider is on low hp plust you're stunned
3. Spider's nuke doesn't do much but 1/5 - 2/5 hp but your stunned
4.Every time spider atks lifesteal would prob turn into nothing
Web-Ward, dust, gem

And there you go.
But all depends on how u play

502 By Damdidam 2010-10-28

@501 brood has an imba orb and lifesteal against ALL heroes -.- the nuke and the web can aalso be used against ALL heroes... so your reasoning is just dumb

501 By Noo=b 2010-10-28

on the other hand you have imba orb and your own nuke and if you placed a web you can easily escape while centaur would have trouble cause of your slow and nuke

500 By Stifler_29 2010-10-28

i think you cannot counter centaur with brood.
1. he has a whopping 2.75 stun
2. two great nukes which is bad for brood's low health
3. he probably one of the beefiest heroes in all.
4. plus the return which could really heart DPSers...
thats what i think...

Can you counter centaur with Brood?

497 By vidimiq 2010-10-09

start with perserverance
push a lot
make your power tread (strenth)
then from perserverence make batle fury
next item is vlad
till next item game should be over ;](if not choose between bkb/ asault/ buterfly depending on situation)

496 By DaMan2000 2010-09-13

@the guardian angel

Spiderlings are what is spawned by your first skill. If your spiderlings kill any enemy units, a Spiderlite will spawn from its corpse. Spiderlites have much lower hp and attack damage, and they do not spawn more spiders

Gave Sheep and Ephemeral a warning for flaming. Just because someone flames you does not mean you are allowed to reciprocate.

494 By GawDzilla23 2010-09-13
