Harbinger, the Outworld Devourer
|Carry Nuker Disabler|
One of a lordly and magisterial race, Harbinger prowls the edge of the Void, sole surviving sentry of an outpost on the world at the rim of the abyss. From this jagged crystalline Outworld, forever on guard, he has gazed for eternities into the heavens, alert for any stirring in the bottomless night beyond the stars. Imprinted deep in the shining lattices of his intellect lies a resonant pattern akin to prophecy, a dark music implying that eventually some evil will wake out there, beyond the edges of creation, and turn its attention to our world. With his whole being focused on his vigil, Outworld Devourer paid little attention to events closer in to the sun. But at last the clamor of the Ancients, and a sense of growing threat from within as well as without, sent him winging sunward to visit the plains of war. Harbinger's place in our own prophecies is unambiguous: he must be considered an omen of worse things to come. But his arrival in itself is bad enough.
Ability: Unit Target
Affects: Enemy Units
Adds extra pure damage to Outworld Devourer's attacks, based on his remaining mana pool. Arcane Orb also deals bonus damage to summoned units and illusions, and steals intelligence from heroes.
Harbinger's outworldly knowledge allows it to tap into the ebb and flow of all spiritual energy, infusing it into his being.
Ability: Unit Target
Places a target allied or enemy hero into an astral prison. The hidden hero is invulnerable and disabled. When it ends, the target and surrounding units take damage.
Upgradeable by Aghanim's Scepter. Changes Astral Imprisonment to a charge based ability and increases the cast range. Also allows multiple damage areas to stack.
Locked away in the pocket between this world and the Outworld, victims realize their infantile knowledge and mortality.
Affects: Allied Heroes
Whenever nearby allied Heroes or Outworld Devourer itself casts a spell, it gains a chance to restore a percentage of its mana pool. Outworld Devourer also passively gains a bonus to his base mana pool.
Ability: Point Target
Affects: Enemy Heroes
Deals damage to enemy heroes in an area of effect based on the difference between Harbinger and the affected Hero's intelligence. If an enemy hero has the same or higher Intelligence than Outworld Devourer, Sanity's Eclipse has no effect.

Stealing from the minds of those he imprisons, Outworld Devourer turns raw intelligence into destructive power. Weakening enemies with a barrage of arcane energy, he shatters their sanity with his ultimate blast, often erasing mana from those that survive.
