Man, this hero seems awesome. Looks like he can mid well and even offlane and junk.

The no-animation Rock seems clunky but I'm sure it'll get a cast time added and an animation by the time it comes to dota 2.

Cool combos and spells.

Too bad it'll be ~6 months before we see him.
A true hero never wavers. My place is at the top.
Bring me a real challenge. CHA

Honestly the hero seems unique and intriguing.
His whole concept regarding the rocks is pretty cool

I'm trying him out in wc3 at the moment, he seems pretty good but i expect some tweaking to come.
Love the fact that it requires you to have good positioning and placement with the rocks

honestly, when i first tried this guy out. I thought he was crap. I hated the whole rock placing thing (still not crazy about it). But even without the rocks the rest of his moves have so much utility that he seems invaluable to any well-coordinated team.

Agreed, he looks very fun and very useful

Those spells look really good.

Looks neat + cool but I have a feeling he'll be nerfed soon enough. These new heroes almost always are.

I heard Icefrog makes all the new heroes slightly OP, so players can see how good they are.

And then nerfs them accordingly in the very next minor patch.
