Hero Strategy

In order to pressure opponents on the lane, bring creep equilibrium closer to your tower.

Consider charging the furthest target in a line to bash all the opponents heroes on the way.

Movement speed items are amazing for Spirit Breaker as they amplify the Greater Bash damage.

Pop Bulldoze and other movement speed-increasing items like Phase Boots or Shadow Blade before charge lands.

Use Charge of Darkness to provide vision over an opponent so he can't juke your allies.

Charge of Darkness allows you to focus on the backliners and supports. Focus on those in the fights.

Take your time to farm Shadow Blade as it provides even more burst and almost guarantees charge completion.

When not much is happening, push out the sidelines.

Aghanim's Scepter is a must in the mid-late game as it deals with spell-immunity and makes charge more frequent.

Counter Strategy

Charge of Darkness provides vision over you. Hiding in trees won't help once you're charged.

Avoid wasting disables on Spirit Breaker buffed by Bulldoze.

Spirit Breaker roams a lot. Keep track of his movements and have a teleport ready.

Spells and items that provide instant disable are great at stopping Charge of Darkness.

Linken's Sphere is great against Charge of Darkness.
