Balanar's passive Hunter in the Night increases his movespeed and attackspeed at night making him a feared ganker and chaser. His Void spell damages the target and slows them to a crawl allowing Balanar and his allies to deal great amounts of damage when cast during nighttime. Crippling fear is a powerful weapon against spellcasters and fighters alike as it both silences and causes a large chance of missing on physical attacks for its duration. Balanar's ultimate "Darkness" allows him to instantly transform day into night (or prolong the night), providing for the fullest effect of his other spells. However, nobody fears the Nightstalker during the day... 2. SKILLS:1. VOID - Creates a damaging void. If cast at night, slows the target for 4 seconds. If cast at day, slows the target for 2 seconds. 2. 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. This has reduced effect during the day. 3. HUNTER IN THE NIGHT - The Night Stalker is at home at night. He attacks and moves more swiftly. 4.
