Generally, do you think is he buffed or nerfed in 6.75?
buffed. that no indicator charge is really a bitch.
the dmg removal from haste is more than made up by his stun buff.
Nerfed. He was useless in organized (still is), and losing his free +60 damage or so hurts him a lot in pubs, destroying his solo ganking potential in low-level pubbing. The indicator never meant too much in pubs as well.
If you don't take into account all the item buff/changes he got a little buff. If you do take it, then he is a beast. Just change your playstyle and build.
Early-Mid game buffed, late game slightly nerfed. I personally love the changes, they actually made me start playing him again.
There was a huge thread about this but generally people agreed he became a better ganker/snowballer at the expense of losing his solo ganking/hunting abilities.
You mean his early game was nerfed by losing Relic damage from Empowering Haste and late game was buffed by being able to lock down enemy carry who has a BKB on?
There is no Barathrum in DotA 2, you must be playing LoL or HoN.
He lost all his damage. So after he uses his easily interrupt-able charge and long cool down, short ranged ult, he turns into a melee creep. He turns into a: who instead of one-shotting the hero, stuns them. I've had multiple instances where after I blow the combo, the enemy hero escapes or forces me to back off. Being charged by SB is no longer scary. You just wonder if he has backup or not.
Nerf,now this hero to much random
The damage loss is more than compensated both by direct and indirect buffs he has received in more places than I care to list.
Also the fact he has the highest base strength in the game is something that I find particularly helpful for him in a place he used to suffer much; the laning phase.
He needs more attack speed now...
dafuq did i just read? either you're a retard or you forgot that it's spirit breakers other name
He go no reliable damage, his stun is 1/6 chance while slardar and void get 1/4 chance.
I can barely kill anyone solo, and if you were smart you would charge out of little distance anyways.
it kinda feels like aghamins is a much needed item on him for that lowered cd.
either you go "that" route or you need to buy straight damage items
it isnt worth stacking attack speed because stun just doesnt proc enough and your damage is horrendous without a damage item, when before it wasnt
I like Barathrum Beef

I think he got better personally, but what I don't like is that you are gimping yourself if you don't buy a MoM.
Haven't played him yet, but I've played against the new Barathrum lots of times. Wards aren't just enough to prevent him from ganking. Sometimes there's that lucky SB bashing your ass with him picking up that Haste rune. Get Treads->Wand+Urn->MoM->Aghs/BKB early on and he's hard to stop. But his late game is weaker though, depending on your team that is. If he lands a bad Nether Strike/Charge of Darkness his team may lose. He needs allies more than ever though, with or without disables.
Numbers-wise it was a buff but I've stopped playing him after the changes so can't really tell from experience.
