Dota 2 - Broodmother Build Guide

For centuries, Black Arachnia the Broodmother lurked in the dark lava tubes beneath the smoldering caldera of Mount Pyrotheos, raising millions of spiderlings in safety before sending them to find prey in the wide world above. In a later age, the Vizier of Greed, Ptholopthales, erected his lodestone ziggurat on the slopes of the dead volcano, knowing that any looters who sought his magnetic wealth must survive the spider-haunted passages. After millennia of maternal peace, Black Arachnia found herself beset by a steady trickle of furfeet and cutpurses, bold knights and noble youths--all of them delicious, certainly, and yet tending to create a less than nurturing environment for her innocent offspring. Tiring of the intrusions, she paid a visit to Ptholopthales; and when he proved unwilling to discuss a compromise, she wrapped the Vizier in silk and set him aside to be the centerpiece of a special birthday feast. Unfortunately, the absence of the Magnetic Ziggurat's master merely emboldened a new generation of intruders. When one of her newborns was trodden underfoot by a clumsy adventurer, she reached the end of her silken rope. Broodmother headed for the surface, declaring her intent to rid the world of each and every possible invader, down to the last Hero if necessary, until she could ensure her nursery might once more be a safe and wholesome environment for her precious spiderspawn.

Broodmother is a hero that can push towers quickly and makes enemies can't stop Her. She can camp in 1 lane and keep farming and pushing in that lane until the barracks broken. She is the fastest pusher in DotA, just leave 1 lane with her in it, and see your towers are all gone. Beware of this hero pushing tower, you will never feel enything and suddenly your barracks is already gone. She uses her spiderlings to destroys towers , the spiders deals lots damage to towers because of its number. Spiders come in large groups of small spider and it is very annoying to the defender.

Early Game
Set up Spin Web since the earliest stage of the game, place it in your lane and use it to be invisible or to regen some Hp. Beware of Sentry Wards on early game, a good opponent will place sentry in your web. But don't worry, you have a high movespeed, you just need to position yourself not behind enemy's creeps. Remember to start raising small spiders using Spawn Spiderlings. Sould ring and Obilivion Staff can helps you to maintain your mana. Gather force of small spiders and make yourself get lots of Spiderlings on early game. You need force of Spiders and use them to push towers as quikcly as possible, noo need to hold your creeps and spiders, the faster you destroy the tower the better. You are the fastest pusher in DotA, show off your skill. Make a link between your webs so you can always invisible in your lane, near tower or far from the tower.

Mid Game
Remember to keep pushing. You can stay in your lane, no matter what happens in another lane. You should leave over the duty of ganking and teamfight to your team in other lane, and your part is to keep camping in one lane, and keep destroying towers and barrack. Keep gather Spiders force and use it to destroys towers. If 4 or 5 enemies try to gank you, just run through your webs that you have already prepared before you push. If that happens (4-5 man ganks you, then your teammates should be pushing the other lane and make the enemies can't keep with that fast changing lane pushing strat). If you already succeeded destroying barracks on your lane, you can change lane and do the same in that lane. Or if enemy is already arrived in your tier 3 tower, you should also participate in defending your base.
