He’s got very powerful abilities, which may be combined with many available items. His key artifact is Blink Dagger, which guarantees him the intangibility. If you use his abilities in the right order, you will survive in almost any fight, even if you get in the most awkward situation.

Zeus is considered to be one of the strongest heroes at the middle stage of the game. He can inflict to an enemy the huge number of damage due to his first two abilities, and his ultimate may inflict the magical damage to all opponents on the map, even if they are in different parts of it. Also the Lightning Bolt ability reveals the Fog of War and invisible units at the radius of 750, which may come in handy in dewarding. 

Playing this hero in 12 official matches Afoninje didn’t stop to haunt the rivals, surprising his fans with spectacular and unpredictable moves. It’s noteworthy that the XPM mark is very close to the other heroes. That proves the fact of his high skill, playing any middle heroes. 

Death Prophet

Death Prophet has a range type of attack, and her primary attribute is intellect. The first ability is considered to be a very strong nuke, which deals 300 magical damage every 8 seconds at the maximum level. In addition to this, she also has an-aimed-at-the-area silence ability, which doesn’t allow anyone to use spells at the radius of 425. As for Krobelus’ ultimate, it is an excellent addition to other abilities — she put 30 spiteful spirits out, which drain out the life of enemy’s units and near constructions. 

Anyway, Death Prophet is the unstoppable killing machine in combination with some heroes. If Andrey has an opportunity to play Krobelus — there is no need to find another variants, since in his hands this hero becomes way stronger.
