Partially blocked by Linken`s Sphere. Blocked fully only when primary target. Blocked upon cast. If the charge has already begun, its impact is not blocked.
Modifiers
Buff Charge Of Darkness: Undispellable.
Buff Special Attack: Undispellable.
Debuff Charge Of Darkness Vision: Undispellable.
Debuff Stunned: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Barathrum erupts from the darkness with unwieldy force.

Notes:

  • Goes into cooldown once the charge ends or is cancelled, not upon cast.
  • The charge indicator above the target is visible to allies only.
  • During Charge of Darkness, Spirit Breaker moves through other units and impassable terrain.
  • Spirit Breaker can cancel it by issuing a targeted order, like attacking, moving, casting Nether Strike or any targeted item.
  • Non-targeted items and Empowering Haste do not cancel the charge.
  • When auto-attack is enabled, Spirit Breaker can automatically attack units when close enough, without cancelling the charge.
  • Spirit Breaker is moved via Forced Movement. His movement speed is completely unrelated, so slows have no effect.
    • This also means that Greater Bash does not deal damage based on the charge speed.
  • Any unit which comes within 300 radius of Spirit Breaker during the charge gets hit by the current level of Greater Bash.
  • The bash radius is offset by 20 units in front of Spirit Breaker, so it can hit units 280 range behind and 320 range in front of him.
  • If the target dies during the charge, it is transferred to the nearest valid target within 4000 range of the previous target.
  • The Special Attack buff is placed upon reaching the target and lasts for 0.1 seconds. Its purpose is unknown.

Notes:

  • When activating, the movement speed bonus increases from 6%/10%/14%/18% to 9%/15%/21%/27% for 6 seconds.
  • After the first 6 seconds, the movement speed bonus decreases from 9%/15%/21%/27% to 3%/5%/7%/9% for 6 seconds.
  • After those 6 seconds, the movement speed bonus increases from 3%/5%/7%/9% back to 6%/10%/14%/18% until activated again.

To dota2 hero   Main   Mechanics   Attributes Table   Release Dates   Grid Layout     Heroes are the essential element of Dota 2, as the course of the match is dependent on their intervention. During dota2 that concentrates on taking out single targets, while lacking in larger team fights. His Charge of Darkness lets him charge towards any target available, while knocking off all enemies in his path. If you see the charge coming, it may already be too late. He is picked mostly for his high damage given by his Greater Bash which crushes the life out of his helpless victims. Barathrum can instantly and quickly move to his enemy via Nether Strike and shock them with a soul-bashing blow. Tanky, mobile and with an array of high-damage knockbacks, including a passive one attached to his right clicks, Spirit Breaker`s ganking capabilities are second to none.
