Dota 2 - Keeper of The Light Build Guide

Upon a pale horse he rides, this spark of endless suns, this Keeper of the Light. Ezalor long ago escaped the Fundamental plane, separating from the other ancient forces to which he was bound within the great Primordial harmony. He is a power grown sentient in the dawn of the universe, and now rides forth in all planes at once, one step ahead of pursuing chaos, bearing his gift with him at the end of a radiant staff. His majestic truth lies hidden beneath the outward appearance of a slightly doddering old man who barely stays in the saddle. However, when faced with the challenge of chaos, or the forces of darkness, his primordial light bursts forth, and his full power is revealed, transforming him once again into a force to be reckoned with.

Keeper of the Light is a nuker that his job is to push and also counterpush the enemy. He should do that by using his Illuminate that deal tons of AoE damage.
He also can drain mana of the enemies. Not just that, he also can restore mana to allies.

He have additional skill in Spirit mode, that is make enemy to miss on each attack.
He also can call a friend who his position is far away from teamfight area.

Very good to choose this hero if your teams focus is on pushing tower.

1. Illuminate
Illuminate, Dota 2 - Keeper of The Light Build Guide
Channels a ball of light energy, building power the longer it's channeled. Once released, the ball deals damage and gives vision in a line. The longer it is channeled, the more damage dealt.

Ezalor's hidden light reveals itself in marvelous fashion.
This is your main nuke. You must channel this for some time ro rech it's maximum damage. Or > if the enemy is try to run before you finish the channeling you can release the illuminate before the maximum casting time.
The damage is so damn high and the radius is so damn long and wide. It is possible to destroy 1 wave of creeps including it's siege units with just 1  Illuminate.

If you use this in teamfights, it will deal tons of damage, but you need the best placement for you to hide from the enemy.
Before the teamfight start, you must predict where the center of the teamfight is,and cast illuminate to that area.

In spirit mode, your spirit is casting this skill, so you can do something else while the spirit is casting this skill. Maybe you can attacking or use another skill.

This skill is very good for pushing and counter pushing because it will deal tons of AoE damages for the enemy's army. This skill is also good for harassment in early game. You can cast this skill from the fog and hiding in the jungle and makes your opponent surprised with the instant high damage he received.

Release Illuminate
Release Illuminate, Dota 2 - Keeper of The Light Build Guide
Release the channel early.
You can cast illuminate before the maximum casting time. You need this if the enemy you are targetting is trying to move out of the area of this skill. So he still receive the damage.

Ezalor disrupts Primordial harmony, draining magical energy from those with poor constitution.
Drain enemy's mana.  Enemy's mana is more drained  the farther he walked. Very good so he can't move if he don't want his mana to be drained, or if he keep moving, he will have himself stunned. If he not move, that is you team's chance to kill him.

Call 1 allies from his position to Ezalor's position. very good to call a carry if he is still farming at far away while you and another teammates area ready for teamfight. or you can cast this to save allies from enemy's attack if he is being chased.

Why maxed illuminate first? Illuminate is your main nuks. This is what you need for harrassing and destroying creep waves.

Why maxed Chakra Magic before Mana Leak? Chakra magic is very important to spam illuminate and to restore mana for allies. This is important for early game when Ally's mana is still low and need a fast restoration.

Mana leak is skill to harass enemies, and stun him. This is the kind of skill to chase enemy that needed for mid game.

You can use this from the early game to makes enemy always lack of mana.

Early Game

You have 2 options in early game.

1. The pusher type
You can harass enemies and push quickly using Illuminate all the time. (You can hide in the fog to cast Illuminate secretly) or
2. Lane support type
You can support you partner by denying, creep pulling, or even restore his mana, you can also drain enemy's mana

I believe the stronger one will be the pusher type. With this you can earn gold fast, but this strategy is not recommended for competition where you should give your farms to your carry and you must support him by not killing the creeps. Except if your competitive team's needs to push as quick as possible with your illuminate, then it's ok for the competitive.

On early game always beware of enemy's gank attempt. Your team always needs ward to spot the runed area where ganks may come from.

Mid Game
Your part is to always cast illuminate in every teamfight. Illuminate will deals lots of damage to enemies. This will helps your carry to kill enemies in an already low HP. You should also cast binding light in the middle of teamfight to make opponent to miss their attacks.
 And if one of your friends is still far away from the teamfight area, you should call him to the teamfight area using Recall in your Spirit Form.

Remember to always use Illuminate if your team needs fast pushing. Illuminate is the best skill for destroying creeps waves at pushing.
Dota 2 - Keeper of The Light Build Guide
Late Game
In late game you should already bought some supportive items like mekansm or Schyte of Vyse, or something else to helps the team. Remember your part in teamfight.
You have the same job in every teamfight.

1. If one of your friends is still far away from the teamfight area, you should call him to the teamfight area using the Recall
2. You shouuld also cast binding light before the clash, to make opponent to miss their attacks
3. Cast illuminate into the middle of teamfight that  helps your carry to kill enemies in low HP
4. Use your supportive items, like mekans, Schyte of Vyse, Pipe.

Late game teamfight is the dependant of how the game will ends. If your team can win the teamfight. That means your team will win the game. And don't give enemy's any chance to fight you back.

1. You need to buy courier and wards for the team. If someone already done it, you don't need to.
Courier: 150
Wards: 150
