Focus on last hitting and farm your Bracers.

If you cannot pressure on the lane or being pressured, consider creep skipping or pulling enemy creeps to your tower after minute 5 as well as farming neutral camps nearby.

Retaliate works on buildings so consider tanking tower shots if it is safe enough.

Look around the map to help out your teammates in the trouble with Stampede.

Once you get Blink Dagger, try to make use of it immediately before the opponents can see it in your inventory.

Make sure your teammates can follow up on your initiation. Centaur doesn't do insane amounts of damage.

Counter Strategy

Someone should buy Spirit Vessel against Centaur to deal damage, offset his regeneration and cancel Blink.

Armor reducing items are great against Centaur.

Items that offset magical damage output from Centaur are good against him.

Keep checking Centaur's items. Be aware of his Blink Dagger timing.

Don't clump up in teamfights for Centaur's Blink into Hoof Stomp initiation.


It's said that a centaur's road is paved with the corpses of the fallen. For the one called Warrunner, it has been a long road indeed. To outsiders, the four-legged clans of Druud are often mistaken for simple, brutish creatures. Their language has no written form; their culture lacks pictographic traditions, structured music, formalized religion. For centaurs, combat is the perfect articulation of thought, the highest expression of self. If killing is an art among centaurs, then Bradwarden the Warrunner is their greatest artist. He rose to dominance on the proving grounds of Omexe, an ancient arena where centaur clans have for millennia gathered to perform their gladiatorial rites. As his fame spread, spectators came from far and wide to see the great centaur in action. Always the first to step into the arena, and the last to leave, he composes a masterpiece in each guttering spray, each thrust of blood-slickened blade-length. It is the poetry of blood on steel, flung in complex patterns across the pale sands of the killing floor. Warrunner defeated warrior after warrior, until the arena boomed with the cheering of his name, and he found himself alone, the uncontested champion of his kind. The great belt of Omexe was bestowed, wrapped around his broad torso, but in his victory, the death-artist found only emptiness. For what is a warrior without a challenge? The great centaur galloped out of Omexe that day with a new goal. To his people, Warrunner is the greatest warrior to ever step into the arena. Now he has set out to prove he is the greatest fighter who has ever lived.
