Like a golem or gargoyle, Earthshaker was one with the earth but now walks freely upon it. Unlike those other entities, he created himself through an act of will, and serves no other master. In restless slumbers, encased in a deep seam of stone, he became aware of the life drifting freely above him. He grew curious. During a season of tremors, the peaks of Nishai shook themselves loose of avalanches, shifting the course of rivers and turning shallow valleys into bottomless chasms. When the land finally ceased quaking, Earthshaker stepped from the settling dust, tossing aside massive boulders as if throwing off a light blanket. He had shaped himself in the image of a mortal beast, and named himself Raigor Stonehoof. He bleeds now, and breathes, and therefore he can die. But his spirit is still that of the earth; he carries its power in the magical totem that never leaves him. And on the day he returns to dust, the earth will greet him as a prodigal son.
Earthshaker is a powerful ganker because of his stuns. Early game his main problem is his mana. He has a tiny starting mana pool of 208 which is only enough for one fissure. Therefore stats need to be taken once or twice at early levels to increase his mana. He needs some clarities in his starting items to ensure that he always has enough mana for a fissure. A decision needs to be made on whether he is roaming. If he is a bottle needs to be rushed as soon as possible to rune whore and the regen. Even if he isn't roaming early game a bottle still needs to be bought. A null talism is useful early game because of the mana boost. Enchanted totem is a skill that only leveled once because Earthshaker is not a DPSer and the skill is only leveled for the effect of aftershock.
