When do you prefer to use Charge of Darkness?
Which gets your points first?
My typical item build is something like this: Power Treads, Mask of Madness, Sange & Yasha, Aghanim's Scepter, Assault Cuirass, Black King Bar. Of course, that's only for -em games that last a long time! Don't forget temporary healing items or Bracers.
What equipment do you buy as part of your DotA Barathrum item build?
You might be tempted to initiate battles with him, but he works best in joining others (or picking off a weakened enemy). Be careful charging from a long distance. Your enemies can tell when it's happening to them, and position themselves somewhere to defend or worse, kill your Barathrum hero.
Anyone you touch on your way to charging gets greater bashed. This can be very useful to support your team, even if you aren't really intending to kill someone with your charge.
Got any fun strategy advice for people new to playing the Barathrum hero in DotA?
