A guardian of the ancient Nerubian Kingdom of Azjol-Nerub, Crixalis fled to the deserts of Kalimdor in an attempt to escape the genocide of the Lich King. The harsh climate transformed this warrior into a master of the earth, able to tear the skin off his foes with vicious sand storms. Those unfortunate to succumb to his potent toxins are condemned to violently burst apart in a cloud of noxious fumes. Sensing his growing power, the Lich King sought out Crixalis and unable to sway him, slew him in battle. Summoned to aid the Undead Scourge, the heart of the Sentinel quivers each time the ground trembles beneath them.

Cooldown: 140/120/100 (120/100/80 with Scepter)
Damage type: magical
Sand King channels for 2 seconds before activating this skill. Stopping the channeling will waste the cooldown and mana required for the skill.
The pulses are centered on the Sand King's current location, not where he first casted the spell.
The AoE of the pulses is 300/350/400/450/500/550/600/675/700/725/(800*)
Can be improved by Aghanim's Scepter (* shows the improved values).

Sand King is a great counter against BroodMother since the slow from Epicenter now affect BKB. He is quite a good laner against BM.

Sand King can escape incoming projectiles (Hit, Magic Missile, Storm Bolt etc.) if Sandstorm or Borrowstrike is cast at right time when the projectile is about to hit.

Seriously anthdx how am I suppose to know the difference when you are and aren't. Should I have a go? =/

626 By anthdx 2011-05-12

i'm not trolling. what i said is true. sand king is a terrible hero. caustic finale should have some DoT since it's an orb. 2 second is too low. should be forever.

800 aoe on his ult is too large. make it max 600. that way it'll be balanced. he should be able to move freely in a sand storm (while still having invisibility).
burrowstrike should have longer range on rivers because the ground is soften. also, make the ground to change into a quicksand. and change him into a fucking cat!

625 By Ne0aly 2011-05-12

Use the past tense, people. They'll never know hehehe.

622 By Ne0aly 2011-05-12

621 By silentzero 2011-05-12

620 By mawhpawh 2011-05-12

@618 retweet.

618 By silentzero 2011-05-12

GJ anthdx. *applauds*

617 By DriN 2011-05-12

@615 retard. a *blink* with stun & dmg for a fairly low cooldown? thats burrow strike. epicenter: try to survive that one if it successfully casted onto you, and its not hard enough if he got his dagger. just queue. sandstorm: lane dominance early game. caustic finale: ever bitten by that skill? 220 dmg per creep is just awesome.
