Terrorblade is a melee Agility Carry with a focus on a limited amount of powerful illusions. As with any illusion based hero, he requires stats-based items to make his illusions as strong as possible. His unique ultimate allows him to swap his health bar with another hero making ganks on him dangerous without extended lockdown to keep him from casting it. He can create long duration illusions of himself that deal a significant amount of his own base damage and a powerful slow that creates an unattackable illusion of target enemy hero that deals a significant amount of their base damage. His third ability is a potent long duration transformation spell that makes him a powerful ranged damage dealer. He has high starting armor but low starting health making him particularly vulnerable to early game spell damage.

Bio[edit]

Terrorblade Terrorblade, the Demon Marauder
Play "The self-righteous shall choke on their sanctimony."
Role: Pip carry.png Carry
Lore: Terrorblade is the demon marauder--an outlaw hellion whom even other demons fear. A cosmic iconoclast, he stole from the Demon Lords, ignored the codified rites that should have bound his behavior, and broke every law of the seven Infernal Regions. For his crimes, he was taught this lesson: even Hell has a hell. A short, brutal trial ensued, with many dead on all sides, and he was finally incarcerated in Foulfell, a hidden dimension where demonkind imprison their own.

But Foulfell is no normal prison. In this dark mirror of reality, demons are sentenced to gaze eternally into the twisted reflection of their own souls. But instead of suffering, Terrorblade made himself master of his own reflected worst self--a raging, thieving demon of unimaginable power. With his inner beast under sway, he destroyed the fractal prison walls and burst free to turn his terror loose upon all creation.

Abilities[edit]

Reflection
Blocked by Magic Immunity. Blocked by Linken's Sphere. Cannot be purged. Play

Reflection icon.png
Ability Affects
Target Unit Enemies
Terrorblade slows the target unit's movement and attack speed and creates a phantom illusion (untargetable, invulnerable) of that target attacking it for the duration.
Range: 275
Illusion Damage Dealt: 40/50/60/70%
Attack Speed Reduction: 60
Movement Speed Reduction: 60%
Duration: 2.5/3.5/4.5/5.5
Cooldown 22/18/14/10 Mana 50
In the fractal prison of Foulfell, Terrorblade learned the truth of this old tale: you are your own worst enemy. Now it is a lesson he teaches others.

Notes:

  • Reflection illusions are uncontrollable.
  • Reflections can only attack their Target.
  • Reflections are not frozen by Chronosphere icon.png Chronosphere
  • Reflections will still follow their target if it turns invisible but will not attack unless they have vision.

Conjure Image
Play
W
E
Conjure Image icon.png
Ability Affects
No Target Self
Creates an image of Terrorblade under his control. The illusion deals a percentage of his damage and takes amplified damage from all sources.
Illusion damage dealt: 30/40/50/60%
Illusion damage taken: 200%
Duration: 32
Cooldown 16 Mana 80
There's only one thing more dangerous than facing Terrorblade. Facing MORE Terrorblades!

Notes:

  • The cooldown is shorter than the duration, so Terrorblade is able to conjure multiple illusions at a time.
  • If Metamorphosis is active when Conjure Image is used, then the illusions will be in ranged form for their full duration.

Metamorphosis
Can be used by illusions. Play

Cooldown 140 Mana 50
Temper, temper. The rage rises up and takes control. Meet Terrorblade's own worst self.

Notes:

  • Can be used to disjoint certain projectiles.

Sunder
Not blocked by Magic Immunity. Blocked by Linken's Sphere. Play

Cooldown 120/80/40 Mana 200/100/0
You didn't need that life, did you? The demon marauder steals that which you hold most dear.

Notes:

  • 0.5s cast time.
  • If Terrorblade's health is less than the defined minimum health it will still cast, but the opponent's health will be reduced to the set minimum health only.
  • Interrupts channeling spells of the target (including allies).
  • Ignores Blademail and Spiked Carapace icon.png Spiked Carapace.
  • Can gain health even while under the effects of Ice Blast icon.png Ice Blast.
  • Does not trigger Borrowed Time icon.png Borrowed Time.
  • Can be used on allies and illusions.

Recommended items[edit]

Explanation:
Starting items:

  • Tango and Salve both provide needed health regeneration during the laning phase.
  • Slippers of Agility help Terrorblade last hit and deny easier and build into a Ring of Aquila.
  • Stout Shield along with Terrorblade's high base armor help reduce the amount of damage he might take from harassment and creeps while laning.

Early-game items:

Core items:

  • Power Treads provide attack speed and some strength, both of which are needed on Terrorblade.
  • Drum of Endurance provides a solid attribute bonus, while the movement and attack speed aura will benefit both you and illusions you create from Conjure Image.
  • Sange and Yasha provides great all around benefits for Terrorblade and his illusions.

Situational items:

  • Manta Style is a great complement to Conjure Image as it will allow you to have up to 4 illusions at once.
  • Butterfly provides the 2nd most agility of any item. Illusions also benefit from the evasion.
  • Radiance provides a lot of damage and the Radiance aura can accelerate Terrorblade's farm and increase his ability to push. Illusions carry the Radiance aura, although the aura will not stack from multiple sources.
  • Black King Bar is the standard choice against multiple disablers.
  • Eye of Skadi's Attack and Movement slow stacks nicely with your Reflection, and can bring enemy heroes to a halt.

Equipment[edit]

Tips[edit]

  • Satanic could be considered as an alternative to Heart of Tarrasque provided you can deal enough damage for the lifesteal to be effective.
  • A Blink Dagger allows you to close large distances instantly to get within Reflection's extremely short range, allowing you to initiate and hopefully kill lone targets without the help of an ally. It also provides you with a much-needed escape.
  • While Sunder is most often used to save yourself from death or nuke an enemy carry, it can also be used to save allies. However, since Terrorblade often serves as the team's main carry, leaving yourself with very little health can be a game-risking mistake.
  • Terrorblade's item builds are versatile, and can range from an early/mid-game oriented build such as Ring of Aquila, Drum of Endurance, and Sange and Yasha, to a more conservative late game build such as a Linken's Sphere rush into Manta Style (similar to how you can itemise Medusa icon.png Medusa or Morphling icon.png Morphling).
  • Terrorblade's extremely high armor allows him to trade auto-attacks and tower dive with impunity in the laning phase, especially when combined with a Poor Man's Shield. However, the trade-off is his low health pool which makes him very susceptible to nukes such as Finger of Death or Laguna Blade.
  • Shadow Blade is a great initiation and escape item, which also allows you to get close enough to your enemy and use Sunder with minimal risk. It also provides great damage and attack speed, both good attributes in all stages of the game.
  • Terrorblade excels at split pushing in the mid and late game, where he can summon up to four Metamorphosed illusions with a Manta Style. Additionally, Sunder allows you to dominate any one-versus-one fights with heroes who don't have enough lockdown to prevent you from casting it.
  • With enough points in Conjure Image, Terrorblade can become an efficient jungler who can clear multiple camps with reasonable speed.
  • If a fight allows, try to pre-emptively cast Metamorphosis so you can maximise the uptime of metamorphosed illusions.
  • Sunder mini-stuns the target upon use and goes through magic immunity. This mechanic can be used to prevent heroes from teleporting home to safety or to interrupt deadly channeled spells such as Death Ward.

Trivia[edit]

  • Terrorblade was Anti-Mage icon.png Anti-Mage's twin brother in DotA. Valve originally planned to retain this relationship in Dota 2 based on Anti-Mage's certain responses, but these responses were removed upon Terrorblade's release, thus removing any connection between the two heroes.
  • Terrorblade's title in DotA was Soul Keeper. Unlike other name changes, this one does not appear to be related to copyright issues with Blizzard. It is speculated that the name was changed to avoid conflicting abbreviations with Sand King.
  • In-game, Terrorblade constantly leaves flaming footprints wherever he goes, similar to his DotA hero model, Illidan Stormrage (also prominent Warcraft character), who also leaves flaming footprints. These can be seen by enemies, but stop being rendered once he's out of their vision, meaning one cannot track down an enemy Terrorblade that goes invisible or slides into Fog of War.
