Hunts with her army of spiderlings

Gliding along her webs, Broodmother births an army of spiders to lead her team's forces toward the enemy base. As prey wanders near, she joins her children and attacks, slowing foes with incapacitating bites as she indulges her insatiable hunger.

Strategy

Broodmother is weak until level 6. Focus on last hitting and sustaining health until you have Spawn Spiderlings.

Make sure not to feed spiderlings away as that greatly affects your farming speed and kill threat.

Once you have built up an army of spiderlings, try to play on the opponents side of the map as much as you can.

Place Observer Wards and Sentries in the enemy jungle so you feel comfortable playing there.

If you are feeling endangered, let your spiderlings farm while staying hidden on hero.

Broodmother can take Roshan down fairly early. Move spiderlings out when Roshan is about to clap.

Counter Strategy

Consider putting a hero that can deal with Spiderlings against her on the lane.

Block off her camps with sentries as she gets closer to level 6.

If you are looking to gank Broodmother you need at least 3 heroes otherwise pressure other two lanes.

Crimson Guard and armor items are good against Broodmother.

Healing and regeneration reducing items are good against Insatiable Hunger.

Evasion piercing items are good against Brood's Silken Bola.

Broodmother is good at taking an early Roshan. Ward around Roshpit and check.

    Lore

    For centuries, Black Arachnia the Broodmother lurked in the dark lava tubes beneath the smoldering caldera of Mount Pyrotheos, raising millions of spiderlings in safety before sending them to find prey in the wide world above. In a later age, the Vizier of Greed, Ptholopthales, erected his lodestone ziggurat on the slopes of the dead volcano, knowing that any looters who sought his magnetic wealth must survive the spider-haunted passages. After millennia of maternal peace, Black Arachnia found herself beset by a steady trickle of furfeet and cutpurses, bold knights and noble youths--all of them delicious, certainly, and yet tending to create a less than nurturing environment for her innocent offspring. Tiring of the intrusions, she paid a visit to Ptholopthales; and when he proved unwilling to discuss a compromise, she wrapped the Vizier in silk and set him aside to be the centerpiece of a special birthday feast. Unfortunately, the absence of the Magnetic Ziggurat's master merely emboldened a new generation of intruders. When one of her newborns was trodden underfoot by a clumsy adventurer, she reached the end of her silken rope. Broodmother headed for the surface, declaring her intent to rid the world of each and every possible invader, down to the last Hero if necessary, until she could ensure her nursery might once more be a safe and wholesome environment for her precious spiderspawn.
