Dota 2 hero roster - Find the character that's right for you

Outworld Destroyer

Astral Imprisonment: Places a target allied or enemy hero into an astral prison for a few (1/2/3/4) seconds. The hidden hero is invulnerable and disabled. When cast on an enemy Hero, Harbinger temporarily steals intelligence (2/4/6/8) from that hero for 60 seconds.

Essence Aura: Whenever nearby allied Heroes or Outworld Destroyer itself casts a spell, it gains a chance (10%/20%/30%/40%) to restore 25% of its mana pool. Outworld Destroyer also passively gains a bonus to its base mana pool (75/150/225/300 additional mana). Several skills with no cooldown and toggled spells cannot trigger Essence Aura.

Sanity's Eclipse: Deals damage to enemy Heroes in an area of effect based on the difference between Harbinger and the affected Hero's intelligence (8/9/10 per point of intelligence). If the intelligence difference is under a threshold (10/30/50), the affected Hero loses 75% of its current mana. Sanity's Eclipse can hit units trapped in Astral Imprisonment. If an enemy hero has the same or higher Intelligence than Outworld Destroyer, Sanity's Eclipse has no effect.
