Heroes of Newerth Hero Spotlight: Gravekeeper Trailer

Meet the latest hero added to the game (5:32)
S2 Games has released a new movie for Heroes of Newerth, a strategy game where two teams of up to five players each take on the role of special Hero units. Gravekeeper is an intelligence hero with a ranged attack. His abilities all revolve around death, and slinging corpses around a fight. He deals primarily magical damage, with Corpse Toss, Corpse Explosion, and the bursting zombies from Zombie Apocalypse. Items that benefit his defenses and magical damage at once are the best. Grave Locket, Power Supply, and Steam Boots are all wise pick ups. One could opt for Ghost Marchers, which allows much better harassing and kiting with Corpse Toss/Defiling Touch, but it's a trade for less survivability. Tablet of Command and Nullstone are great defensive items, one providing escape and the other providing health and spell nullifying, and both benefitting his Mana pool. End-game items like Hellflower, Kuldra's, and Frostfield Plate all benefit Gravekeeper and help him stay alive longer. Spellshards would increase the damage on a few abilities, but since it won't affect Zombie Apocalypse and Corpse Toss uses charges/Defiling Touch is passive, the cooldown reduction is not useful. Stormspirit would increase Gravekeeper's mana regeneration and grant survivability, as well, but may be opted out for other, more powerful items.
