Death Prophet Krobelus, the Death Prophet[edit]

Recommended Roles
Carry Pusher Nuker Disabler

Krobelus was a Death Prophet--which is one way of saying she told fortunes for the wealthiest of those who wished to look beyond the veil. But after years of inquiring on behalf of others, she began to seek clues on her own fate. When death refused to yield its secrets, she tried to buy them with her life. But the ultimate price proved insufficient.

Death disgorged her again and again, always holding back its deepest mysteries. Her jealousy grew. Others could die for eternity--why not she? Why must she alone be cast back on the shores of life with such tiresome regularity? Why was she not worthy of the one thing all other living creatures took for granted? Still, she would not be discouraged.

Each time she returned from the grave, she brought a bit of death back with her. Wraiths followed her like fragments of her shattered soul; her blood grew thin and ectoplasmic; the feasting creatures of twilight took her for their kin.. She gave a little of her life with every demise, and it began to seem as if her end was in sight. With her dedication to death redoubled, and no client other than herself, Krobelus threw herself ever more fervently into death's abyss, intent on fulfilling the one prophecy that eluded her: That someday the Death Prophet would return from death no more.

When she unleashes her army of ghosts, Death Prophet excels at demolishing enemies and their defenses alike. Leading her team's forces toward the enemy base with wave after damaging wave from her swarm, her onslaught can seem unstoppable.

Whenever an enemy is affected by Death Prophet's spells or when she attacks an enemy, a ghost will fly out, slow and hit the enemy for an increased bonus of its usual damage then return to her with life.
Over time, the banshee remnants of her previous lives return to haunt the present.

  • Spirits attack units within 700 range, and chase them up to 1200 range.
  • If a spirit gets 2000 range from Death Prophet, it will disappear and respawn at Death Prophet.
  • Spirit damage ignores evasion and damage block.
