Darkterror, the Faceless Void: You have to go back in time!

July 3, 2012


Welcome to my Void Guide! Void is famous for beeing one of the hardest carries in the game and for having a huge AoE Team fight ultimate. This is my first Guide, so i hope its not too bad. ENJOY! :)

Pros and Cons

+Has a good escape mechanism
+Very good hard carry
+Great AoE Teamfight Ultimate

-Not really survivable in the early game
-Only reaches his full potential if given enough farm/levels
-Can be countered by other carries in the late game (Anti Mage, Spectere....)

Skill Build

Getting one level of time walk is NEEDED in both builds. You do have the option of picking up another Level of it at level 4, but its just player preference. Now you have to choose between the two builds. Will you mostly get freefarm and can you be aggressive or willl you be harassed? If you can get freefarm and want to be aggressive go for the first build! Otherwise go for the second one.


For starting items i recommend getting a quelling blade as well as some basic regen with tangos and a salve and finally 3 iron wood branches which you can turn into a wand. For early items getting a ring of health and some treads is great. You have the option of getting a poor man's shield at the side shop. One word to the hand of midas: if you want one, then rush it, which means get it before getting anything else. You can also go for a vanguard in the early game if you need more survivability but i recommend getting a really fast battlefury. What you wanna do with this is farm like crazy since your farming capability will increase by a lot. You can also go jungle with it and jump from camp to camp with your time walk. Now you can go for a mask of madness, but only if you need it. Once we arrive at mid game there is one item you should get which is a manta. Manta will give you great stats and of course the split. Keep one thing in mind: your manta illusions wont have the bash (time lock). After your Manta pick up a Black King Bar. This will almost always be the right choice because of the stats and the magic immune active. This item is great for almost any carry. And finally the late game! Every void should try to get a butterfly, do i have to explain this? I don't think so! There are some cases where a monkey king bar should be purchased first for example if you are fighting a mortred.

Advanced Tactics

One important thing while playing void is positioning the chronosphere right. It's important to position the Chronosphere so that the enemy is stuck on the edge of it so your melee heroes can attack them. And dont get any of your teammates stuck in there if possible. Another thing: try to always carry tp scrolls to jump over an edge to tp out if you are beeing chased.

Last Words

Now to the final words. I hope you liked my first guide and now P0WN the enemy! So what are you still doing here?! Go hurry up and 0wn! :)
