StoryEdit

Dota Allstars:
Once a gifted troll witch doctor, young Rhasta was well versed with the secrets of voodoo magic. When the war between the Sentinel and the Scourge began, Rhasta, then a Shadow Hunter, offered his allegiance to the Sentinels to vanquish the Scourge once and for all. While he was gifted as a witch doctor, Rhasta is a genius as a shadow hunter, exceeding his master by mastering the art of summoning multiple serpent wards, binding enemies for a short time and casting elemental lightning to several units.
Dota 2:
Born in the Bleeding Hills, Rhasta was just a starving youngling when picked up by a travelling con-man. For two pins of copper, the old con-man would tell your fortune. For three, he’d castrate your pig, for five, he’d circumcise your sons. For a good meal, he’d don his shaman garb, read from his ancient books, and lay a curse upon your enemies. His strange new youngling, part hill trowle, part…something else, worked as assistant and lent an air of the exotic to the con-man’s trade.

Always one step ahead of cheated customers, one town ahead of a pursuing patronage, the two trekked across the blighted lands until one day the con-man realized that the little youngling could actually do what he only pretended at. His ward had a gift—a gift that customers valued. And so the youngling Rhasta was thrust before the crowds, and the trade-name Shadow Shaman was born. The two continued from town to town, conjuring for money as Shadow Shaman’s reputation grew. Eventually, the pair’s duplicitous past caught up with them, and they were ambushed by a mob of swindled ex-clients. The con-man was slain, and for the first time, Rhasta used his powers for darkness, massacring the attackers. He buried his beloved master, and now uses his powers to destroy any who would seek to do him harm.

Shadow Shaman is one of the best heroes for disabling enemies, with two strong spells of this type. However, he is a fragile hero who tends to become a focus for enemy wrath in combat. Teamwork and communication are essential if Shadow Shaman is to make full use of his potent spell arsenal. Ether Shock is a useful ability, good for harassing foes, killing creeps, and finishing off wounded enemies who try to escape his snares. Hex is a straightforward polymorph skill, transforming the target into a critter and rendering them useless in a fight for a few seconds. Shackles is an interesting ability which disables the target and also Shadow Shaman, who must remain immobile while he channels the spell. However, this is not as much of a disadvantage as it might seem, since his Mass Serpent Ward gives him a powerful means of destroying his target while he holds them in place. The wards are a powerful siege tool as well, able to level buildings very quickly. Since towers can only defend against one ward at a time, they stand little chance against Shadow Shaman's legion of serpents.
