[Noble#6]Balanar the NightStalker

Recommended Posts

first i want to say that all notes,comments,sentences and guides i post are 100% written by me(Noble) and only me! if you wish to post a part or full of this guide to other forums consider giving the proper credits to NobLe(i m against c(L)opy - pasting so dont humiliate your ass and yourself by just copying my job


Noble Note: Balanar is an imbA tank or DPS and he is a cool looking hero!he speaks gently relaxed and like a nobleman thats why i like this hero a lot ^^


My target is to make you learn the basics of the  hero i post a guide for! I m not god so i cant assure that following my guide you become the pwner ! PWNAGE is affected by your gamestyle so even if you have the best hero you might play like noob and  maybe if you play with the weakest hero become beyond godlike in a game



Balanar,The NightStalker



Beware, you who wonder the night. Each step you take leads you deeper in the hideous reign of the horrible ruler of the dark. Balanar, elite dreadlord who brought the total darkness of the Nether into this world, haunts these regions. Your heart will pump harder, your legs will shake, and your mind will cloud as the presence of the stalker hunts you in the dark. There's no chance to fight, no way to run, and no place to hide - darkness is everywhere! You can pray, you can cry, but the darkness won't be stopped - until you die.

Level 3 - Deals 255 damage 130 mana

Level 4 - Deals 335 damage 145 mana


Cooldown: 8 seconds.


Note:its a nuke Balanar has!Late game this skill will be completely useless but it can be used to slow  someone who probably try to escape or finish someone ^^ at night time it can slow someone



Crippling Fear


In the night, the Night Stalker can cause intense fear in enemy units, causing them to miss attacks and be unable to cast spells.


Level 1 - Miss on 10% of attacks. Lasts 5 seconds.

Level 2 - Miss on 20% of attacks. Lasts 6 seconds.

Level 3 - Miss on 30% of attacks. Lasts 7 seconds.

Level 4 - Miss on 40% of attacks. Lasts 8 seconds.


Cooldown 12 seconds


Note:as the info says there are chances that your hits will cause your enemies to miss and silence them from casting spells at night!it might save you in many battles or disable a strong opponent in a team battle..useless at day





Hunter in the Night(Pasive)


The Night Stalker is at home at night. He attacks and moves more swiftly.


Level 1 - 15% movement speed, 20% attack speed.

Level 2 - 20% movement speed, 35% attack speed.

Level 3 - 30% movement speed, 55% attack speed.

Level 4 - 35% movement speed, 75% attack speed.


Note:  This is why you are called Night Stalker!when you hear the Wolf Howl at 17:30-18:00 game time then prepare for ownage!you gain extra AS and MS during the night! :D This skill is deactivated automatically at 06:00 where the roast starts the day and reactivates at 18:00 ^^





Creates a period of darkness for the Night Stalker to thrive in.


Level 1 - Turns day into a 25 second night.

Level 2 - Turns day into a 50 second night.

Level 3 - Turns day into a 80 second night.


Cooldown: 240/180/125


Note:This is an amazing skill which costs NO mana :D and extends your ownage for some seconds!  the trick with that skill is that the best time to use it is in night time! no one will see when you used this skill(only if they notice the watch) and you get the time stopped for the duration while this skill is activated to 00:00!


if you want to use it on day time for some ganging the sky will get darkened so probably the enemies will withdraw or play more defensive in order to watch their backs :P dont waste it for farming lol



What items should i wear on Balanar?


2pra2dk.gifit is acceptable cuz in night time you may need instant teleportation to the fights! despite it is acceptable i dont rly get it or accept it its up to you

etfgwl.gif For Evasion for Attack Speed (you want it for day time if you get BoTs) The reason why i chose this is that some players  are quite difficult late game like



32znv9x.gif-->armor , AS just great item :P sunergizes with BoTs to reach almost max AS at night:D

97kv8p.gif for easy farming and help in day time

d5x6o.gif great bonus stats ;)

316kpq1.gif HP bonus,Fast HP regen for next battle! :)



302tmjm.gif for the stat bonus and survival but BoT is way way way better

2wghhdt.gif take it at your own risk

ifz7e1.gif alternative choice but rarely chosen in pubs

2psrj36.gif dmg dmg dmg :D :D :D

4htufr.gif Lifesteal

9a8wb5.gif Life Steal + armor +MP regen(though we dont need MP regen that much its acceptable)

4uc4u9.gif instead of Vlads



Rejected items


xlxyeq.gif  because Radiance does better job + we dont need mp on balanar!!!Void will be useless when you get BF so the mp regen will be ignored  ^^ Radi Radi Radi !!!

53vfr6.gif NOOOOOO!!!! illusions DONT get the effects at night so dont even take it





Worst Enemies




NOTE: i didnt specified them just because only these can trouble you in game ^^

vlads exist in alternative list


SnY on purpose isnt on the list because many ppl choose it (but they cant use satanic)

Sny imo is not that needed because we have radi,crippling fear and satanic in main build :)


i placed the strongest possible build in my opinion
