The Eternal Undertaker


Guraibu the Eternal Undertaker is a very aggressive combatant, due to his base attribute, high agility gain and versatile skill set. He can move almost instantly to engage a fight or escape from it. The frightening jump scare that he makes whenever he hop out of the ground causes terror to enemy, which afflicts their strike. Undertaker's main tool of destruction, which is the mystical hoe of Catacomb, enables him to bore a damaging hole to put enemy on a static position, proven useful to punish them to death. Half of his capabilities are granted from the supreme ruler of the dead realm's grave, which he can summon magical vines that pulls enemy into nearby hole, and his ultimate; which allows him improvise his already existing abilities and movement.

If ultimate is activated (will be explained later), all enemy that get pulled with vines can be dragged into the same hole with same damage.



Not to forget, even though The Undertaker's movement under ground is not a blink or instant, it renders him invisible to enemy for a short time and disjoints projectile upon casts.



As soon as the vine ensnares enemy, it mini-stuns them. When they are dragged into a hole, they can move, but only onto the direction of the hole and around it (works like Slark's leash), before they fall into the hole.



New attack animation is not activated when Disarmed (a huge counter to this ability)


Item build-up

Considering his base attribute, The Undertaker needs item that provide mana as well as damage because he is a potential right-click hero with an amazing (and fun!) skill set but low mana pool. Due to his main attribute being Strength, he has good health regen[/color] and regen amplification. So health would not be an issue (if played correctly. What he need is items that can co-operate with his attack speed, initiation, mana and mana regen, and abilities.

Undertaker can be either position 1 or position 3, depending on the match up. So, usually you will go carry at safelane and utility or tank at offlane so the build up varies.

Note: Items coloured in Orange is situational, Blue for Luxury, and Yellow for Core



I would like to thank Hades4u and Dr.D for helping me with formatting. Without their help, my hero concept would be a mess, if not messy enough. Also thanks to DotAFire for this opportunity.
I take credit to all parts of this concept including Hero Lore, Artwork and Descriptions as it was I who brainstormed, crafted and drawn the concept and arts.
