Pudge Pudge, the Butcher[edit]

Recommended Roles
Disabler Initiator Durable Nuker

In the Fields of Endless Carnage, far to the south of Quoidge, a corpulent figure works tirelessly through the night—dismembering, disembowelling, piling up the limbs and viscera of the fallen that the battlefield might be clear by dawn. In this cursed realm, nothing can decay or decompose; no corpse may ever return to the earth from which it sprang, no matter how deep you dig the grave. Flocked by carrion birds who need him to cut their meals into beak-sized chunks, Pudge the Butcher hones his skills with blades that grow sharper the longer he uses them. Swish, swish, thunk. Flesh falls from the bone; tendons and ligaments part like wet paper. And while he always had a taste for the butchery, over the ages, Pudge has developed a taste for its byproduct as well. Starting with a gobbet of muscle here, a sip of blood there... before long he was thrusting his jaws deep into the toughest of torsos, like a dog gnawing at rags. Even those who are beyond fearing the Reaper, fear the Butcher.

Each carefully aimed throw of Pudge's signature hook strikes fear into his foes. Pulling his enemies near to carve them with his cleavers, he gains additional health and damage with every kill, and soon becomes an unstoppable killer.

The Butcher's hook is a symbolic nightmare, its curved blade a frightening reminder of his slaughterous intent.
Notes
  • Meat Hook only grabs units while it is extending. If the hook touches a unit while retracting, it has no effect.
  • Meat Hook can pull Runes back to Pudge. The mana cost is refunded if successful.
  • Provides 500 flying vision on hit, lasting at the hit location for 4 seconds.
