Strengths and WeaknessesEdit

Strengths Edit

  • Has the highest STR growth in the game at 5 Stars Evolution, which aided with his passive Purple Skill, Fortitude, gives him a very high HP and physical resistance bonus.
  • High crowd control with his Stomp (Green Skill) and Assault (Ultimate Skill).
  • Can briefly protect the entire team with War Charge (Blue Skill).

Weaknesses Edit

  • Slow attack speed.
  • Very low AGI growth, dealing little physical damage.
  • War Charge only lasts for a few seconds and is not reactivated later.

Overall Rating: Campaign (9/10), Arena (9/10), Crusade (8/10)

Notable Counters: Commando, Heroes too dependent on skills and with high cast (as he can interrupt them with Assault and Stomp), Heroes with high initial burst, such as Swordmaster and Ember Blade (as War Charge absorbs damage for a few seconds).

Countered by: Heroes with burst damage (such as Fallen Dominion), Heroes with repeated damage (such as Cloud Walker), Heroes who can inflict high stun, thus preventing him from using his own, team setups that have a tank and too many back line Heroes, thus preventing his stun/knockback to be really effective until the tank is dead.

Good SynergyDeath KnightCommandoCloud WalkerFallen DominionEmber Blade, Swordmaster.

Recommended Evolution: 4 or 5 Stars.

TriviaEdit

  • Ballak's DOT Arena counterpart is Barbaro.
  • This hero is based on the DOTA 2's Hero Centaur Warrunner.
