Ehmm.. this is my first strategy guide so its free for you to add comments. Well, this guide contains my build and strategy for Barathrum the Spiritbreaker. Barathrum can be the number one hero in a game if you play him well so we will be discussing things about confronting enemy lines. I hope you will enjoy reading my guide.. and goodluck!

Barathrum - Spiritbreaker

Range: | Move Speed: 290
Primary: STR
Str: 23 + 2.4 | Agi: 17 + 1.7 | Int: 15 + 1.8
Damage: 45 55 | HP: 587 | Mana: 195
HP Regen: 1.44 | Mana Regen: 0.61
Attack Speed: 0.69 | Armor: 5
Charge of Darkness
Charge of Darkness (C)
Barathrum fixes his sight on an enemy and starts charging through all objects. Any unit that comes into contact during the charge triggers a greater bash proc. Upon leaving the shadows, Barathrum shocks his opponent into an immobile state for some time. Enemy can only see buff indicator when you are near them. Charge is interrupted if disabled.
Level 1 - Charge at 425 ms then stuns for 1.2 seconds.
Level 2 - Charge at 500 ms then stuns for 1.6 seconds.
Level 3 - Charge at 575 ms then stuns for 2.0 seconds.
Level 4 - Charge at 650 ms then stuns for 2.4 seconds.
Target will become aware of the charge (a buff is visible in the status bar) when Barathrum is within 3000 distance.
Barathrum will run through units and trees.
Allies of Barathrum (and himself) will see an animation over the head of the target.
Any unit you pass through (250 AoE) will proc a Greater Bash of your current level (nothing will happen if you didn't skill it)
The charge stops if you click anywhere, or if you are disabled.
Barathrum gains shared vision of the target for the duration.
If the target dies, the charge is transferred to the nearest valid target.
Mana Cost: 100
Cooldown: 40 seconds
Comment: Never use this when you are too far away from the enemy because this skill can be noticed at the status window that allows them to stick to their tower or allies.

Empowering Haste
Empowering Haste (H)
Causes the Spiritbreaker to swing his weapon faster with higher movement speed, allowing him to deal extra damage. His presence increases the movement speed of nearby allied units.
Level 1 - Increases movement speed by 6% and damage by 4% of his movement speed.
Level 2 - Increases movement speed by 8% and damage by 8% of his movement speed.
Level 3 - Increases movement speed by 10% and damage by 12% of his movement speed.
Level 4 - Increases movement speed by 12% and damage by 16% of his movement speed.
The bonus damage is added to Barathrum's ordinary attack damage.
Area of Effect: 900
Mana Cost: N/A
Cooldown: N/A
Comment: This passive skill is very useful especially when you have higher moving speed that allows him to deal more damage.
Greater Bash
Greater Bash ()
Gives a 17% chance to bash enemies across the ground, doing more initial damage and damage as they skid. You gain 15% movement speed bonus for 3 seconds when this triggers.
Level 1 - Deals 25 damage, 140 knockback distance, lasts 0.95 seconds.
Level 2 - Deals 50 damage, 180 knockback distance, lasts 1.15 seconds.
Level 3 - Deals 75 damage, 220 knockback distance, lasts 1.35 seconds.
Level 4 - Deals 100 damage, 260 knockback distance lasts 1.55 seconds.
Damage type: magical
Greater Bash is triggered everytime Spiritbreaker initiates an attack, so it is not necessary to land the attack in order for Greater Bash to work.
Disable works on magic immune units.
Mana Cost: N/A
Cooldown: 1.5 seconds
Comment: A good looking attack that drives away enemies with extra damage. For me it is the most unique bash attack in Dota. Very Cool!
Nether Strike
Nether Strike (E)
Moves you next to your target doing extra damage. Performs a greater bash hit. Casting range improves per level.
Level 1 - Moves Barathrum next to the target, deals 100 damage.
Level 2 - Moves Barathrum next to the target, deals 200 damage.
Level 3 - Moves Barathrum next to the target, deals 300 damage.
Damage type: magical
Barathrum will move to the other side of the target seen from the point he casted it.
Performs a Greater Bash of your current level upon arrival (no bash will happen if you didn't skill it).
Teleportation and damage is delayed 1 second while Barathrum is fading out, Barathrum is magic immune for this time period.
Casting Range: 400/550/700 (550/700/850*)
Aghanim's Scepter dramatically reduces cooldown and improves casting range. It also causes enemies around the primary target to also be bashed upon teleporting.
Mana Cost: 125/150/175
Cooldown: 75 (20 with Scepter)
Comment: A powerful attack that bashes the enemy backwards. It allows u to move next to ur opponent with more dmge, if you have build up more on 3rd skill the greater the damge of your ultimate skill will do.

Skill Build

Early Game:

Lvl 1 ~ 6


Boots of Speed, Ring of Health, Bracer


Try to go into a lane with a melee hero, or a hero with no strong nukes like Zeus as much as possible, creep denial should always be your first priority, the creep killing is 2nd to your list. Just farm gold by killing last shots on creeps, furthermore do not harass enemy her, just be sure that you are safe and getting enough experience and gold. When your enemy tries to harass you, just fight back and always be sure that you have the advantage because of your 3rd skill. If you health is almost 1/4, just stick to your tower for regen to avoid deaths.

49 By Konteskyn 2008-06-23

48 By topgunn$$ 2008-06-18

2.boot of travel.
3.mask of madness.
4.hyper stone.
5.hyper stone.
6.hyper stone.
total carnage......

47 By 11252007 2008-05-21

i think its more speedy if you add madness?????

46 By MadMax 2008-05-04

Barathum can easily own Leoric, poorly detailed strategy, bad item build, don't rate it, no use.

45 By ZOMGIMBAHAQ 2008-04-27

I have an alternate build for those of you who are tired of playing a typical Bara:
2x bracer
With Bara I feel the need for my ult to get kills. With this build it just aint so.

44 By csirkefogo 2008-04-21

I never buy satanic or heart for him. 2700 HP at the end of the game are enough. My build: threads, vladimir's, SnY, hyperstone, assault (or another hyper), cranium. Permastunner, fast, living tank. So forget about HP stuffs (bloodstone, tarrasque, etc) max your attackspeed and get a cranium. Noone stands in your way (or just for a while :-P)

43 By de4ever 2008-03-30

I would buy these items 4 barathrum, good 4 farming n killing:
power treads
satanic or just helm of dom
fast n deadly..
good luck

42 By bitok 2008-01-21

try this guys..
now, u probably wont find a hard time killing heros..and then..

41 By thedeadly 2007-12-29

hehe cool..

40 By Marth 2007-12-24

I rate this guide a 1, because it overlooks VERY MANY important items and abilites barathum has. There are so many problems and bad advice, I would suggest not looking at this guide if you plan on playing barathum. You have not grasped even how his spells work. This is a much more complicated hero.

38 By unholydonuts2 2007-12-08

umm would cranium basher be good 4 this guy?

37 By AXCELACCEL 2007-11-14

36 By Mortal Tree 2007-11-09

a Vlad's right after SnY
helps quite a lot

35 By AXCELACCEL 2007-11-07

buy cuirass

34 By akh_874 2007-10-26

2 bashers because they stack.

combined with your bash the enemies will not be doing any fighting because they will always be stunned.

battle fury is good too because of the splash damage.

33 By JI87M 2007-10-24

not good

32 By Cia_ik_Lee 2007-10-06

that is a great strategy....!!!
