To that end, he assembled a form that would serve him well, both in our world and out of it. His physical form borrows from the strengths of this world, blending features both bovine and simian-horns, hooves and hands-as outward emblems of his inner qualities of strength, speed and cunning.

Why take Charge of Darkness for level 1? You need this to try to get firstblood together with your friend. If you don't want to try to get firstblood, then take a Greater Bash instead, it will makes you easier to last hits.

Why maxed Charge of Darkness first? This way you will be a powerful ganker on early game with 2.4s stun and makes your team easier to kill the enemy.

Why maxed  Greater Bash before  Empowering Haste? Greater Bash is more useful for damaging the enmy. You need this to increase your damage and carrying ability.

Early Game
On early game, you should have a decent damage to farm early creeps. Barathrum receives additional damage from if he do Greater Bash. And with an additional quelling blade, last hits is a piece of cake for you. Try to last hits every creeps using your high damage and + quelling blade.
Charge a target that you feel is easy. Tell your friend that you will target “X”. And together focus fire on x, kill him. Ask your partner to cooperate with you in your gank. Your partner should come after you successfully stun your target and helps you kill the enemy.

Mid Game
On mid game, MoM is your target. Try to save 2000 gold for this item. This item will benefit you by a lot. You will gain more attack speed and lifeteal and makes you a decent carry. You also gain an additional movement speed that means adds damage more for carrying. Your killing method is very simple, first: use Charge of Darkness, and then after you hit your target, use your ultimate and Mom, and right click until the target dies.
Dota 2 - Barathrum Build Guide
Late Game
If you succeeded on mid game, late game will be easier for you. You are considered a carry, so you should buy DPS items such as Daedlus, Mkb etc. Although you are an STR hero, you are strong, you have a Greater Bash that will knock back enemy and make you a powerful carry.
Charge of the Darkness should be done before the teamfigh starts. Once you arrive at the enemy, your friend should come after you and participate in the teamfight. Use you normal attack, and then use your ultimate and kill your target. Focus on one enemy, after he death, change to other enemy.
