Karroch was born a child of the stocks. His mother died in childbirth; his father, a farrier for the Mad King of Slom, was trampled to death when he was five. Afterward Karroch was indentured to the king’s menagerie, where he grew up among all the beasts of the royal court: lions, apes, fell-deer, and things less known, things barely believed in. When the lad was seven, an explorer brought in a beast like none before seen. Dragged before the King in chains, the beast spoke, though its mouth moved not. Its words: a plea for freedom. The King only laughed and ordered the beast perform for his amusement; and when it refused, struck it with the Mad Scepter and ordered it dragged to the stocks.
Over the coming months, the boy Karroch sneaked food and medicinal draughts to the wounded creature, but only managed to slow its deterioration. Wordlessly, the beast spoke to the boy, and over time their bond strengthened until the boy found he could hold up his end of a conversation--could in fact speak now to all the creatures of the King's menagerie. On the night the beast died, a rage came over the boy. He incited the animals of the court to rebel and threw open their cages to set them amok on the palace grounds. The Mad King was mauled in the mayhem. In the chaos, one regal stag bowed to the boy who had freed him; and with Beastmaster astride him, leapt the high walls of the estate, and escaped. Now a man, Karroch the Beastmaster has not lost his ability to converse with wild creatures. He has grown into a warrior at one with nature’s savagery.
Hi, so I played a game yesterday with Beastmaster and my build was Boots of Speed, Blink Dagger, Vladmir's Offering, Heaven's Halberd and Assault Cuirass. My team won the game, but at the end my carry (who pick Riki even when there was a Bounty Hunter already in our team) said to me that I was a n00b because I didn't build Necro book and that Necro is a must in Beastmaster. In that game we where teamfighting a lot, so I build important auras for the team and an initiation tool, I don't know why he said that to me, is Necro the only way to play the hero? Don't get me wrong, I love the item, but I felt that Vlads and Cuirass were more important. Please help!
