The only defense I see is if they deathball 5 man dota.


This is pretty much it. If somebody on the team really needs to farm, the safest place to farm would be your own jungle. Never go to lane alone.

Or you could bait SB and counter-gank.

I dunno he just seems to change the way the game is played too much. Basically forcing everyone out of lanes once he hits level 6. Even with two people in a lane. If you catch them with a surprise charge from the side and ult the weaker one, you can get an easy kill even with disables.

He also has great base damage early on and high hp.
I think a nerf to his health would work.

But what else can you do without changing what the hero is about? He is the Spirit Breaker. Charge is what makes him unique.

Blademail + bulky hero is the only non silence way to stop him, he is op in pub matches because people die easily to him early game and he thrives mid game. i've been in games where my entire team is lv 14-16 and a SB is 23+ and we still are close in tower count, he is simply a pubstomp hero.

That's pretty much the reason why Wisp is scary at 6. Global gank op.

He's far from the only hero to do this, he's just the one that takes the least skill to do it with.

Wisp, Nature's Prophet, Slark, and Nyx Assassin do the same thing played right. Heck, Clinkz and Weaver to a certain extent can do it too.

It's just an aspect of the game you have to get used to to get better at it.

Best I'VE personally stopped a Spirit Breaker was with Lion. Seriously, it's such a gratifying feeling when you Hex him when he comes into view, and follow up with a spike and let your teammate(s) melt his face off.

Still really hard to stop a SB/Lifestealer bomb though, as is the case with a lot of initiator/LS combos lol


i remember when i was playing shadow shaman and i saw him coming through a ward i ran to a tower hex'd him then used my shackles it felt so good to have managed to catch him with it.

I find Clinkz and Nature's Prophet the most annoying, especially when you're playing as an AM or QoP. They tend to get Orchid far ahead of your BKB/Manta, unless your teammates are doing a great job of slowing down their farm while creating space for you to farm.
