Darkterror the Faceless Void is a melee agility hard carry hero. Given a little time, he becomes a terrifyingly powerful hero capable of destroying entire enemy teams in seconds.

Wielding his cosmically powered mace, each hit can lock his foes in time, stopping them in place. He can jump into or out of combat using Time Walk, and passively can avoid any damage with Backtrack which even works against True Strike. His ultimate, Chronosphere, locks time for everything within its area of effect, giving him time to strike down any enemies caught within with no resistance from them for several seconds. Faceless Void is a hard carry and, as such, scales heavily from items and reaches his full potential in late game, growing into one of the most powerful and destructive Heroes in the game making him almost impossible to stop.

Bio[edit | edit source]

Faceless Void Darkterror, the Faceless Void
Play "From a place beyond time, and time beyond counting."
Role: Pip carry.png Carry / Pip initiator.png Initiator / Pip disabler.png Disabler / Pip tank.png Escape
Lore: Darkterror the Faceless Void is a visitor from Claszureme, a realm outside of time. It remains a mystery why this being from another dimension believes the struggle for the Nemesis Stones is worth entering our physical plane, but apparently an upset in the balance of power in this world has repercussions in adjacent dimensions. Time means nothing to Darkterror, except as a way to thwart his foes and aid his allies. His long-view of the cosmos has given him a remote, disconnected quality, although in battle he is quite capable of making it personal.

Time Walk
Blocked by Spell Immunity. Not blocked by Linken's Sphere. Partially dispellable. Play
Time Walk icon.png
Target Point
Rushes to a target location while slowing the movement speed of all enemies along its path for 3 seconds.
Cast Time: 0.35+0.83
Cast Range: 700/900/1100/1300
Max Travel Distance: 700/900/1100/1300
Slow Radius: 300
Move Speed Slow: 20%/30%/40%/50%
Slow Duration: 3
Cooldown 19/17/15/13 Mana 90
Partially dispellable. Slow debuff is purgeable, Timewalk itself is not.
Darkterror tears a hole in time, passing through Claszureme, and appearing back in an instant.


  • Time Walk moves Faceless Void with a speed of 3000.
  • Does not disjoint projectiles upon cast.
  • The slow can hit units up to 1000/1200/1400/1600 range away (700/900/1100/1300 max travel distance + 300 slow radius).
  • Does not travel the full distance, when targeting closer than its max distance.

Cannot be used by illusions. Disabled by Break.
Backtrack icon.png
Ability Affects
Passive Self
Faceless Void dodges damage by jumping backward in time, eluding both physical and magical attacks.
Proc Chance: 10%/15%/20%/25%
Darkterror sees what has yet to be seen.


  • Backtrack belongs to the group of damage negating effects. It is not evasion.
    • This means it only negates damage, it does not evade any side effects of spells or attacks, like disables.
    • When an attack has e.g. Diffusal Blade icon.png Diffusal Blade and Backtrack triggers on the attack, the damage is avoided, but the mana burn still takes effect.
    • This also means that Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar will not stop Backtrack from avoiding attack damage.
    • Evasion has priority over Backtrack. When evasion procs, Backtrack can't proc on that attack.
  • Backtrack has the 3rd highest priority in the group of damage negating effects.
  • As with all damage manipulating effects and despite the ability description, Backtrack can negate all 3 damage types. It does not react on HP Removal.

Time Lock
Not a Unique Attack Modifier. Not blocked by Spell Immunity. Not blocked by Linken's Sphere. Cannot be dispelled. Cannot be used by illusions. Disabled by Break. Play

  • Chronosphere affects all units which are not owned by Faceless Void, including buildings, wards and allies.
  • Does not affect couriers, hidden units and invulnerable heroes. All other invulnerable units are fully affected.
  • While in the Chronosphere, Faceless Void and any units he controls are hasted to 1000 movement speed and are phased. Slows will have no effect on them.
  • Faceless Void and illusions of him (be it own, enemy or allied illusions) are never disabled by any Chronosphere.
  • However, the movement speed and phase is only provided to the caster of it.
    • The only exception is illusions from an allied Replicate icon.png Replicate, which will also gain the movement speed from the Chronosphere.
  • Affected units are stunned. When other units walk inside the area, they also will be affected for its remaining duration.
  • Units inside Chronosphere can be pulled out by various spells. Force Staff icon.png Force Staff and Geomagnetic Grip icon.png Geomagnetic Grip cannot move units out of Chronosphere.

Recommended items[edit | edit source]

Starting items:

  • Consumables will allow you to stay in lane in the early levels, where you will be subject to harass.
  • Quelling Blade and Slippers both provide extra damage to Faceless Void to aid in last-hitting during the laning phase. Slippers can build into a Poor Man's Shield from the Side Lane Shop which together with Backtrack increases Faceless Void's survivability in the lane.

Early Game:

Core Items:

  • Mask of Madness is an extremely cost-efficient item for attack speed which increases damage output potential during Chronosphere, and gives more opportunities for Time Lock to proc. When coupled with a quelling blade the added lifesteal allows Faceless Void to permanently stay in the jungle. However, be careful as the 30% damage increase makes quick work of Faceless Void's very low health gain.
  • Power Treads gives stat bonuses and increased attack speed to Faceless Void, increasing his survivability and potential damage output.
  • Maelstrom is a good choice if you're looking for a cheap source of damage and attack speed. The lightning proc will improve your farming and pushing, and it'll let you damage multiple enemies inside the chronosphere much more effectively.

Situational items:

  • Butterfly grants evasion, and chance-stacks with Faceless Void's Backtrack. This item alongside level 4 backtrack has the potential to negate 51% of auto-attack damage, increasing Faceless Void's survivability. In addition, the agility and attack speed will dramatically increase Time Lock's stun potential.
  • Battlefury allows you do farm faster and deal aoe damage to enemies that are clumped up in Chronosphere. This can be considered a core item against heroes with multiple illusions or summons(Phantom Lancer and Broodmother). However, this item costs a lot of gold so make sure you get the farm you need early on.
  • Daedalus is the best damage boosting item Faceless Void can pick up. The added damage and 240% crit will boost your physical damage output immensely. When coupled with some attack speed boosting items, Faceless Void becomes a very fearsome threat against enemies.
  • Mjollnir gives bonus attack speed, damage and when active, damages multiple enemies when it procs.
  • Assault Cuirass grants additional attack speed, armor and an armor reduction aura that increases both Faceless Void's damage potential, and that of his teammates.
  • Monkey King Bar grants true strike and a significant amount of damage. This could be considered an important item to pick up when facing evasive heroes, such as Phantom Assassin icon.png Phantom Assassin.
  • Aghanim's Scepter is a situational pickup late-game after you get your core damage items as the lowered cooldown of Chronosphere means it will be ready for every teamfight, in addition to the bonus health and mana.
  • Black King Bar is a crucial item if Faceless Void is up against magic damage reliant heroes, especially stunners and disables. If you were to miss a stunner/disabler in your Chronosphere, they could easily disable or kill Faceless Void from outside. Purchasing a Black King Bar and using it in fights will ensure that Faceless Void isn't being slowed down by said heroes.
  • Heart of Tarrasque is always useful in any fragile hero. The gigantic hp increase will allow you to maintain yourself in the heat of the battle for longer, and better handle the ranged attacks that any hero who is not stuck inside your Chronosphere may dish out, while the strong regeneration meshes well with Void's natural escaping capabilities, allowing him to hide to safety and quickly go back to the fight.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

Time Lock average stats (hero)
Time Lock average defense value (hero)
  • Mask of Madness will allow Faceless Void better to utilize Chronosphere throughout game, as does almost any item that gives attack speed or damage. A BKB is usually a good choice after getting a MoM as nukers outside the chronosphere can be ignored, while they otherwise burst the fragile Void very easily.
  • When using Chronosphere it's important that you prioritize the targets to deal maximum damage. Important targets include carries and spellcasters. In early game focus the supports to guarantee the kill.
  • If you want to play your lane aggressively, level Time Lock first, conversely if you need to play defensively, level Backtrack after getting at least one level of Time Walk as it is still your primary escape mechanism, while also having some offensive potential.
  • Chronosphere will pause friendly units (exception : units under control of Faceless Void) and heroes as well as foes. Try to position it so enemies are within the sphere and allies are outside and can reach enemies inside without having to enter the Chronosphere itself.
  • Using later levels of Time Walk and Chronosphere in tandem can easily catch entire enemy teams off guard.
  • Faceless Void goes together well with heroes that have ranged ultimates, such as Lich, Jakiro, Witch Doctor and Gyrocopter. Chronosphere can trap enemy heroes in place for several seconds.
  • If you are trying to decide on what item build is best for Faceless Void remember that his main goal is to do the most damage and hopefully kill at least one key enemy hero inside his Chronosphere where he has a 5 second free rein to attack a target without any chance of retaliation.
  • While Aghanim's Scepter may diminish your carry potential sometimes it might come in handy as it increases your Chronosphere duration to 6 seconds and reduces its cooldown to only 60 seconds, allowing your ultimate to be ready in almost any team fight and while it may not contribute to your damage output very much it does increase your survivability by granting you stats and HP.
  • Juggernaut's Omnislash is not stopped inside your Chronosphere, provided Juggernaut wasn't caught in the Chronosphere in the first place. It also doesn't stop Storm Spirit's Ball Lightning.
  • A Black King Bar is very crucial item if you find yourself interrupted by magic attacks from units not caught in your Chronosphere e.g. stuns and disables. Every second counts when the Chronosphere is in use, and getting stunned or hexed from outside interference can result with your Chronosphere expiring without any enemies getting killed.
  • A Refresher Orb icon.png Refresher Orb combined with Aghanim's Scepter will allow you to lock down the entire enemy team for 12 seconds at Level 3 Chronosphere and will provide the longest hard Crowd Control in the game, provided you have the initial manapool to cast Chronosphere twice and use Refresher's active. This is more than enough time to kill two or three enemies, even without damage items, and allows you to make use of the full duration of Mask of Madness active. While it is not viable in most circumstances, if purchased fast enough after Aghanim's Scepter, it will allow you to wholly dominate the enemy team.
  • Battlefury gives you good damage with health and mana regeneration. It is also great when you use Chronosphere and have multiple heroes caught inside it. Its cleave enables you to deal damage to multiple foes rather than one target at a time. If Faceless Void is powerful enough, he can kill an entire team caught inside the Chronosphere with Battlefury.
  • A Diffusal Blade is an optional item one can consider, most useful against silences to purge yourself and ensure a successful Chronosphere as well as giving a ganking ability and bonus damage. It is also a viable choice against Heroes dependent on their abilities to survive or escape, such as Wraith King icon.png Wraith King. Necronomicon icon.png Necronomicon is another choice worth considering if the mana burn is absolutely necessary.
  • If properly farmed and by picking the right item choices, Faceless Void is possibly the only hero in the entire game who can pressume of having the ability to quite literally turn the battle in his team's favor in a matter of seconds - While playing as him, it is your objective to reach that level of dominance as fast as possible. Only go for kills you know you can get - Even if you have to activate chronosphere on a single hero, the gold and experience will go a long way in aiding. But most importantly, prioritize your survival above all else - Dying just a couple of times can cripple your farm and a Void without farm has an incredibly hard time to get a comeback.
  • Time Walk icon.png Time Walk into Chronosphere icon.png Chronosphere is the usual combo for initiation, however experienced players can easily dodge it with some sort of instantanous escape (such as Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger) or one which makes them invulnerable (Such as Waveform icon.png Waveform or Ball Lightning icon.png Ball Lightning). For this reason, Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade or Silver Edge icon.png Silver Edge can be worthwhile considerations in order to sneakily approach enemies and then use your chronosphere while denying them any reaction time (If they have a Blink Dagger, it's better to initiate by hitting them out of invis, as it will trigger the item's cooldown). You can then use Time Walk icon.png Time Walk after the Chronosphere icon.png Chronosphere in order to escape if needed. However, note that this method is countered by true sight and might get predictable quickly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In DotA, Faceless Void's alternate/fun name is Gorzerk.
  • Faceless Void's death response, Play "Unkind…Rewind" is likely a reference to the old saying, "Be Kind, Rewind", a saying used to remind customers to rewind rented VHS tape before returning them to the store.
  • Faceless Void's respawn line Play "In the land of time, the no-eyed man is king." refers to the famous adage by Desiderius Erasmus: "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king."
