Heroes of Newerth 2.0.21

First of all, Sorry for not updating very much this week I was really looking forward to hear you guys responses on what I have going for the classes, but alas I have spent most of my time job searching. Don't worry though, hopefully I should be back on track with posting soon, I may squeeze out a bunch of updates this weekend. On to more fun news, another Heroes of Newerth patch and a new hero to boot.

The majority of the patch was bug fixes so I will not go over them, here is a link though But who cares about any of that stuff, we got ourselves a new hero.

His name be Tremble and by god if it isn't a new and improved Broodmother from DotA. Hellbourne Agility hero Tremble with an amazing 310 base movespeed.
Hon Hero Spotlight:

Dark Swarm:
Type: Magic
Radius: 300
Mana Cost: 90 / 100 / 110 / 120

Summons a swarm of bugs for 5 seconds. Enemies within the swarm take 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 Magic Damage per second, while enemies outside the swarm deal 8 / 16 / 24 / 32% less damage to Tremble.

Create and tunnel through Terror Mounds. Terror Mounds grant Invisibility with a 2 second Fade Time, {15,20,25,30}% Move Speed, and {2,4,6,8} Health Regeneration. Also gain the ability to Terror Port every {120,100,80,60} seconds between Mounds.\n\nMaximum of {3,5,7,9} Terror Mounds.

On Attack
Applies Impalers to target for 2 seconds.
Impalers grant 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 bonus Magic Damage and 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 HP heal on inflict.
10 / 20 / 30 / 40% Movement Slow

Cast Time: 1.0 Seconds
Mana Cost: 140
Cooldown: 90.0 / 75.0 / 60.0 Seconds
Required Level: 6 / 11 / 16
Summon Shudder at your location. If Shudder is already summoned, kills the previous Shudder and resummons it.

Shudder has 50 / 75 / 100 Attack Damage, 800 / 1100 / 1400 HP, 350 / 375 / 400 Movement Speed, and 1 / 1.5 / 2 second Ensnare. His Razor Carapace grants 10 / 20 / 30 Deflection and {-2,-4,-6} Armor on attack.

He has access to the same level of Terror Form and Impalers as Tremble.

This guy has everything, he can gank well and control runes through just one level of terrorform and with impalers has excellent chasing ability. He is definitely built to have the ability to carry, and comes with some survival and healing from abilities which is nice. Most interesting is his ability to counter pushes by porting back to base. I definitely am interested in how things pan out and how the community uses him. But my recommended carry build as I shall give for every hero, is: Ghost Marchers cause that wonderful no clip - Battlefury to help farm and mana regen - not straight, probably last item to finish Symbol of Rage for the extra lifesteal - Wingbow for some damage and attack speed - Brutalizer for disabling - and Rift shards for the damage. Good luck with 'em everyone. And one last tidbit is some music I stumbled upon, Abney Park try it out.
