BIO
Karroch was born a child of the stocks. His mother died in childbirth; his father, a farrier for the Last King of Slom, was trampled to death when he was five. Afterward Karroch was indentured to the king's menagerie, where he grew up among all the beasts of the royal court: lions, apes, fell-deer, and things less known, things barely believed in. When the lad was seven, an explorer brought in a beast like none before seen. Dragged before the King in chains, the beast spoke, though its mouth moved not. Its words: a plea for freedom. The King only laughed and ordered the beast perform for his amusement; and when it refused, struck it with the Mad Scepter and ordered it dragged to the stocks.

Over the coming months, the boy Karroch sneaked food and medicinal draughts to the wounded creature, but only managed to slow its deterioration. Wordlessly, the beast spoke to the boy, and over time their bond strengthened until the boy found he could hold up his end of a conversation-could in fact speak now to all the creatures of the King's menagerie. On the night the beast died, a rage came over the boy. He incited the animals of the court to rebel and threw open their cages to set them amok on the palace grounds. The Last King was mauled in the mayhem. In the chaos, one regal stag bowed to the boy who had freed him; and with Beastmaster astride him, leapt the high walls of the estate, and escaped. Now a man, Karroch the Beastmaster has not lost his ability to converse with wild creatures. He has grown into a warrior at one with nature's savagery.

Why Wild Axes should be maxed first? It is your main nuke for farming and ganking, also can be used for ancient stacking.

Why Call of the Wild before Inner Beast? You need your hawk for scouting since the early of the game. You need your Boar to be more stronger and have it's slowing ability increased before you started to gank somebody.

And Inner beast will be useful for mid-late game where the right click power become much more important, so it will be better to take it in mid-late game.

STRATEGY:
Early Game
In early game you need to lasthit creep if you are not a support for your team. If you are a support, you can deny.

In early game, it will be better to summon your hawk for scouting the area where the enemy may comes to gank you. You can place your hawk in runes area.

You can harass enemy once in a while using your wild axes and makes them inconvenient because you will always reduce their HP.

Mid Game
In mid game, your part is to gank somebody using your primal Roar and Wild Axe +attack from you and your Boar. You should ask your friends to gank someone that are alone in the map. Together with your friends, it should be easy to knock down enemy if he is alone in a lane. Prepare a surprise gank from the jungle and then use your Primal Roar as your opening, after that you and your friends come and your friend should use all of his skill while you use wild Axe and then right click,
Your Boar should right click the enemies so that his movement will be slower and you can attack them while he can barely move.

What you need to remember:
1. When ganking you need to focus fire on one hero. You need to communicate it with your teammate, your team need to decide which hero should be focus fire first.
2. You may also needs smoke of deceit to hide yourself from enemy's ward.
3. Remember to buy sentry wards, dust, or gem before ganking invisible hero like Rikimaru or Nyx Assassin.
Late Game
Your part is still the same that is to initiate a teamfight. Use your Primal Roar as an opening skill. After your primal roar, all of your opponent should come and then use all of their spells in the teamfight. Your part after initiating is to: Use wild axes to nuke down enemies and then right click the enemies using all your units. Remember that you have +attack speed here, so it will automatically helps your friends in beating the enemies with the attack damage.

Also don't forget to use all items you have for example: Mekansm or Pipe.

And if your team won the teamfight, you have two options:
1. You can get the Aegis for your team's main hero or
2. Your team can push enemy base and destrouy their buildings. Choose wisely!
