Tips[edit | edit source]
- Since the Bash is a chance based ability, buying attack speed granting items increases the odds of a bash proccing. However, the effectiveness stops at a certain amount of attack speed due to the cooldown the bash has.
- The bash goes through spell immunity. When not having other spell immunity piercing spells in the team, a Skull Basher is a great purchase as it can help greatly against heroes with spell immunity, especially those who get a Black King Bar in order to channel their channeling spell.
- Despite having a much lower chance to proc for ranged heroes, it still has a decent chance. When coupled with high attack speed, a Skull Basher on ranged heroes can be very viable, especially for heroes who have attack speed boosting abilities like Windranger with her Focus Fire, or Drow Ranger with her high amount of agility.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the original DotA, this item was called "Cranium Basher", a reference to a unique item in Diablo 2.
