DOTA 2: Rubick Spell Steal Video

Rubick, The Grand Magus, is one of the funniest heroes to be added to the Dota 2 beta so far, so I decided to make a montage of some of my experiences with him. His ultimate allows him to steal the last spell cast by the target hero. So, as you can imagine, hilarity ensues.  Enjoy!

Dota 2 Hero: Lifestealer

Written by Micah Messer

There he is… Isn’t he beautiful?

Even though N’aix the Lifestealer looks like the kind of creature that would devour my soul with a smile on his face, I’ve still been enjoying him greatly. It’s been hard for me to get into strength heroes recently, but Lifestealer is special. Instead of taking the front line like most other strength hereos, he actually spends a lot of his time hiding behind his team mates. Did I say behind? I meant inside. Lifestealer’s ultimate ability is called Infest. The ability’s description is as follows:
“Lifestealer will infest the body of the target unit, lying dormant and undetectable inside. When he reveals himself, he deals damage to all nearby enemy units. Lifestealer can gain experience from units that die while he is infesting a unit. If the unit is a creep, he will devour it first, gaining health equal to the unit’s current HP. Does not work on enemy Heroes.”
