Spirit Breaker guide on assassination

January 2, 2013


This build make use of the advantage of the spirit breaker's charge of darkness mechanism,that you are able to use item during charge. the main trick in this build is the using of shadow blade during charge. They'll never see it coming...


Item on spirit breaker in this guide will be focusing on high burst damage, phase boot is great as it not only make it easier for you to last hit in early game, u will not have difficulties in chasing down fleeing targets as well. The main item for assassination is of course shadow blade, although it is easy to counter shadow blade, your high speed during charge will make your enemy hard to react. MOM together with gauntlet gives you tonnes of burst damage and you can activate all these items during charge. in late game you can buy any high damaging item u can get. but of course you will be sacrificing your def for all that burst. if you feel that you are getting countered, u can buy defensive items like assault, shivas, and halberd against high dps heroes. lastly force staff is a great item for escaping after assassination.


skill set for this build is much like the other builds. so there isn't much controversy.

Pros / Cons

-high burst dmg
-high mobility
-excel in solo kills

-highly item dependent
-low def/squishy
-not useful in team fight
