Introduction **IMPORTANT**

Hello, and thank you for visiting. Please, do not downvote until you have actually tried the build out <3. Now, that we have that out of the way. I can say that: this build isn't to carry with, it's to push, and push, and push some more.

*Note - Build still in progress.

Pros / Cons

*Can carry if needed.
*Excellent Pusher.
*Very hard to counter in lane.
*Chasing isn't an issue.

*Pushing can be easily countered by AoE nukes.
*She likes to stretch her legs.

General Game Plan

You want to go mid, and place 2 webs so that the 2 of them meet right in the middle of the lane. As soon as that's done, you will need to farm your Early Game items ASAP.

Mid:You will push mid lane (Using the soul ring - not to run out of mana) When mid is pushed, you would want to go to other lanes and start pushing them with the help of your teammates.

Late: Using your post-haste boots + spider web's, push other lanes, run away, push again.

Picking A Lane

You always want to go mid with BroodMother. But, if you for some reason can't go mid, you need to go solo top/bot. If, that's not an option. Then, just stick with whatever you got.

Why go mid?

First of all, you need to get your core ASAP - to increase pushing potential to maximum. Second of all, she is a pretty level dependant hero, you need to max out your spiderlings ASAP, and then Incapacitating Bite.


*Don't be afraid to use your ult if your low.
*If the enemy buy's counter wards, buy counter ward's yourself.
*If you need to escape and your in woods, you can use the spiderlings to block hidden paths once you have gone through them.
*You can use spiderlings to trap your opponents.
*If spiderlings are infront of you, they will slow you down by blocking your path.


Spawn Spiderlings

Broodmother injects her young into an enemy unit, dealing damage. The spiderlings will hatch if the target is killed while under this influence.

This spell is what makes Broodmother such a great pusher in lanes. If the target that this spell is casted on dies within 2 seconds it spawns little spiderlings to do your bidding. If the target does not die within 2 seconds of this spell be cast, nothing happens. See the potential for goof here?

Spin Web
Throws out a web that renders Broodmother invisible in its vicinity, while also boosting regeneration, and granting a passive movement speed increase.

This spell has many uses to it and is why Broodmother has such great chasing/escaping ability. I mean, invisibility, regen, and a move-speed increase? What's not to love.
BEWARE OF Dust of Appearance!

Incapacitating Bite
Broodmother's venom cripples enemy units, causing her attacks to slow and deal bonus damage, as well as giving the affected unit a chance to miss its attacks.

This coupled with Web Spin is what makes Broodmother able to carry later on in the game. Getting ganked by a big spider with a move-speed buff and a slow? Yeah, I won't be sleeping tonight either.

Insatiable Hunger
A violent lust for vital fluids increases Broodmother's attack damage and gives her a vampiric attack.


I hope you enjoyed the build. Please try it out, and rate it accordingly :)
