Warbeast is a melee hero with a large amount of life and he summons dogs! Cheesy


Summon Hell Hounds:

Mana cost: 125
Cooldown: 20 seconds

Summons 2 hell hounds for 55 seconds.

Hell hounds have 400 health, deal 17-18 damage per attack, and have an attack cool down time of 1.25 seconds.

At level 4 hell hounds are invisible when not attacking.

This summon is your main spell you want to use, it helps when fighting heros, creeps, just about anything!

Battle Cry:

Global, all units under War Beast's command
Type: Magic

Mana cost: 15
Cool down: 35 seconds

Applies battle cry to self and all units under your control for 16 seconds

+11 Damage

Battle Cry is one of your most important spells to use late game, when used against heros it can be devastating.

Primal Rage:
Global, all units under War Beast's command

+10% Base damage
+10 Attack speed

This ablitiy is passive

This spell helps more than you think, The + on attack speed is huge, and it gives you an advantage. Primal Rage helps you spend less money on attack speed items and damage items, and lets you focus on health and mana regen.

Ult Metamorphosis:
Mana cost: 100
Cool Down: 100 Seconds

Applies Metamorphosis to self for 14 seconds
+100 Max health
30% chance for a 2.0x critical strike
Reduces base attack time from 1.7 seconds to 1.4 seconds
Increases movement speed of self and all owned units to 522

This, paired with your hounds and Battle cry is an amazing combo. Even an inexperienced player can use this combo (such as myself) to take down an unsuspecting enemy hero.

NOTE: All skills are at level one in this guide, they do get better later on.

Item Build:
Early game:
2 Runes of Blight
Crushing Claws/Bolstering Armband (if you can afford it)

Strength items early game are a good idea, increases damage output and health. Runes of Blight are standard healing items for the beginning of the game.

Mid Game:
Enhanced Marchers/Steam boots
Abyssal Skull

Sustainer for health/mana regen, Enhanced marchers i prefer. but you can go with whatever boots you like. And the Abyssal Skull for lifesteal,it helps a lot.

Late Game:
This is for you to decide, since i haven't figured it out yet Tongue

Skill Build Order


1 Summon Hell Hounds
2 Battle Cry
3 Summon Hell Hounds
4 Battle Cry
5 Summon Hell Hounds
6 Metamorphosis
7 Battle Cry
8 Summon Hell Hounds
9 Battle Cry
10 Primal Rage
11 Metamorphosis
12 Primal Rage
13 Primal Rage
14 Primal Rage
15 Stats
16 Metamorphosis
17-25 Stats

i have to disagree with this one,
the first items you should get the ring of something (armour and mana regen aura) which is also used in abysmal skull
and 2 mana potions for hounds

skill build should be:
1 Primal Rage
2 Summon Hell Hounds
3 Primal Rage
4 Summon Hell Hounds
5 Summon Hell Hounds
6 Metamorphosis (or hounds/primal if jungling)
7 Summon Hell Hounds
8 Primal Rage
9 Primal Rage
10 Battle Cry
11 Metamorphosis
12 Battle Cry
13 Battle Cry
14 Battle Cry
15 Stats
16 Metamorphosis
17-25 Stats

This is a better build all round i think, if jungling i suggest getting the ulti a bit later
and i suggest jungling at lvl 3 when you have lvl2 hounds

mid items:
abysmal skull

abysmal skull
shield breaker
magic immune item (cant remember name Cheesy

when you get shield breaker you should be able to take kongor quite easy
