Strategy

Make sure pull camps are unblocked as lane is likely to be pushed due to Illuminate.

Be creative at positioning to be able to hit opponents with Illuminate.

Avoid hitting ranged creeps with level 1 Illuminate as it will become deniable.

Illuminate provides vision which can be used to check pillars for wards or Roshan pit.

Keeper is fast and with Illuminate you can make multiple stacks at the same time.

Keeper is amazing at defending buildings while your cores can split push.

Avoid showing yourself at the start of the fight and align Illuminate's path over allies in Spirit Form for heals.

Make sure to provide Chakra Magic to an ally that benefits most from it after his spells were used.

When not much is happening, push out sidelanes with Illuminate. You don't even have to show yourself.

Make sure to pick up Aghanim's Scepter at reasonable time as this hero lacks control.

Use Blinding Light to push opponents under your tower or closer to your core if you can get a favourable trade.

If you have the Recall facet, look to split push lanes as much as you can to get an enemy hero to defend, and then Recall yourself elsewhere to gank or take a fight.

Counter Strategy

Bring an Observer ward to your lane to see Keeper of the Light charging Illuminate.

Prevent Keeper of the Light from pulling as he will push with Illuminate and then look to pull.

Keeper of the Light is very squishy but really fast. One disable and he will drop low on HP.

Keeper of the Light is great at defending towers alone. Jump him or consider glyphing the wave.

Magic resistance and spell immunity items are great against Keeper of the Light.

Be aware if Keeper of the Light has the Recall facet. He can bring multiple heroes to ganks or fights and beat you with a numbers advantage.

After a short delay, teleports the targeted friendly hero to your location. If the targeted friendly hero takes player based damage during this time, the ability is interrupted. When cast, the teleport target's movement speed is increased. Upon teleporting, Chakra Magic and the increased movement speed buff are applied to both Keeper of the Light and the teleport target. If alt-cast, teleports Keeper of the Light to the target Ally instead. Ability Level increases with levels of Spirit Form.

If Keeper of the Light dies, the spell effect is interrupted.

    Lore

    Upon a pale horse he rides, this spark of endless suns, this Keeper of the Light. Ezalor long ago escaped the Fundamental plane, separating from the other ancient forces to which he was bound within the great Primordial harmony. He is a power grown sentient in the dawn of the universe, and now rides forth in all planes at once, one step ahead of pursuing chaos, bearing his gift with him at the end of a radiant staff. His majestic truth lies hidden beneath the outward appearance of a slightly doddering old man who barely stays in the saddle. However, when faced with the challenge of chaos, or the forces of darkness, his primordial light bursts forth, and his full power is revealed, transforming him once again into a force to be reckoned with.
