Dota 2 Heroes: Beastmaster Guide

Dota 2 Imba Heroes



Playing with Beastmaster Guide: also known as Rexxar in Dota 1, he is strong early game and can play a tremendous support and great strategy during this time of the game. His called of the wild is one of the unparalleled skill early in the game as he will have a hawk as a scout and the pig to slow down enemy. Play Beastmaster as a support at the beginning of the game and just give him Boots and Bottle he can just roam the map to gank all through up to mid game. He has the skill “Wild Axes” which is pretty itchy at early game. And his 4th skill “Primal Roar” is one of the best stun skill in game.

Although he is strong during early game, his built or growth in stats is not the best in long game compared to other heroes. What Beasmaster user do during this time is switching role where they equip him with late game items. He is at his best when equipped with a Necronomicon.

When ganking always use the 4th Skill Primal Roar to stun your opponent. Avoid use it for last hitting otherwise you’ll be wasting it’s 4 second stun. If you have Blink Dagger, blink behind your opponent then cast it. Then use 2nd skill Call of the Wild if you don’t have your Pig yet then use Necronomicon. Use 1st skill Wild Axe as mush as possible during this time.

Description: Karroch was born a child of the stocks. His mother died in childbirth; his father, a farrier for the Mad King of Slom, was trampled to death when he was five. Afterward Karroch was indentured to the king’s menagerie, where he grew up among all the beasts of the royal court: lions, apes, fell-deer, and things less known, things barely believed in. When the lad was seven, an explorer brought in a beast like none before seen. Dragged before the King in chains, the beast spoke, though its mouth moved not. Its words: a plea for freedom. The King only laughed and ordered the beast perform for his amusement; and when it refused, struck it with the Mad Scepter and ordered it dragged to the stocks. Over the coming months, the boy Karroch sneaked food and medicinal draughts to the wounded creature, but only managed to slow its deterioration. Wordlessly, the beast spoke to the boy, and over time their bond strengthened until the boy found he could hold up his end of a conversation–could in fact speak now to all the creatures of the King’s menagerie. On the night the beast died, a rage came over the boy. He incited the animals of the court to rebel and threw open their cages to set them amok on the palace grounds. The Mad King was mauled in the mayhem. In the chaos, one regal stag bowed to the boy who had freed him; and with Beastmaster astride him, leapt the high walls of the estate, and escaped. Now a man, Karroch the Beastmaster has not lost his ability to converse with wild creatures. He has grown into a warrior at one with nature’s savagery.

Beastmaster is a well-rounded fighter, with many tactical options available for all types of combat. Although his physical attacks are melee, he can throw his axes at long range to slice through enemies, dealing lethal damage. His Primal Roar can turn the most organized defense into chaos, allowing Beastmaster and his allies to move in for the kill. His summoning skills serve as effective support for his blitz-style combat. Beastmaster’s agile Hawk flies above the battlefield scouting for enemies, and the powerful slowing abilities of his Boar’s spines give him time to finish off fleeing foes. A skilled Beastmaster is a deadly foe, capable of fighting any enemy on any terms and crushing them to a pulp.
