They say being your self is the greatest show case of strength. They are wrong.
Once I was an ordinary man who had no talent or power. Weak, humiliated and pathetic but I was determined to reach greatness. I traveled through lands to find masters who could thought me the art of being a masked man. A person who can be anyone but once they refused to teach me I slayed them and ripped their faces off.
Once I put the faces on my mask all their knowledge and powers are mine. I have the strength of a Titan, sharpness of an assassin and wisdom of a mage.
I was once no one, now I am everything and I'm looking for more faces for my collection.

About the hero:
Masked Man is a very unique hero and it's because he can be anything. From a magic damage nuker to a melee physical damage carry or even a tank. It's all about the lowest and highest attribute. A high agility low int build can be great for Ethereal Blade build or a high STR, low agility build for with items like Desolator, Satanic and flat damage for great physical damage out put or a high INT, not that low STR build with items Shiva's Guard and utility items for a tanky build. What ever you need to be name it and Masked man can be that.
Power Treads is the most important item of all builds cause it allows stat change which allows you to switch between two attribute skills.
one of the best ways of playing him is to upgrade one main stats and keeping the other two close in order to be able to switch abilities with Power Treads.
Imagine you went for the tank build and have Power Treads and some of the following items: Shiva's Guard, Blade Mail, Crimson Guard, Scythe of Vyse, Eye of Skadi and Linken's Sphere. At this point you keep power treads on agility to keep strength as the lowest stat, suddenly you are ganked so you can either: Change stats to STR then steal their attack speed with agility weakness, change the stats again and tank the damage with Titanium strength or root them with strength weakness then escape with keen warrior. You see lots of possibilities for different builds.
He needs farm to shine in his builds but he can also give the stage to others and be a great support as well!
Break removes the passives but does not remove skills affected by them.
Hey if you think he ain't spooky enough just remember 3 faces are hanging from his belt (just imagine him ripping the face off his victims...)
