Internal npc_dota_hero_disruptor
Traps and silences foes in his static storm.
From upland Druud, the Stormcrafter known as Disruptor rides down on his stryder to meet those who threaten ancient Oglodi lands. On his back, he carries a device that lets him aim overloaded Thunder Strikes from the skies. The Stormcrafter is able to Glimpse his target back to an earlier location, and erects his Kinetic Field to confine them within a circular barrier. Magic dissipates inside Disruptor's Static Storm, leaving foes caught within no option but to await their own destruction.

Disruptor minimap iconDisruptor, the Stormcrafter
▶️ "By stormcraft, I shall lay my enemies low."
High on the wind-ravaged steppes of Druud, a gifted young stormcrafter called Disruptor was the first to unlock the secrets of the summer squalls. Constantly under assault from both seasonal storms and encroachment from civilized kingdoms to the South, the upland Oglodi have for centuries struggled to subsist atop the endless tablelands. They are the fractured remnant of a once-great civilization, a fallen tribe, their stormcraft strange and inscrutable, cobbled together from scraps of lost knowledge which even they no longer fully understand. For those on the high plain, weather has become a kind of religion, worshiped as both the giver and taker of life. But the electrical storms that bring life-sustaining rains arrive at a cost, and many are the charred and smoking corpses left in their wake.

Although small for his kind, Disruptor is fearless, and driven by an insatiable curiosity. As a youth, while still unblooded and without a stryder, he explored the ruins of the ancestral cities, searching through collapsed and long-moldering libraries, rummaging through rusting manufactories. He took what he needed and returned to his tribe. Adapting a coil of ancient design, he harnessed the power of electrical differential and now calls down the thunder whenever he wishes. Part magic, part craftsmanship, his coils hold in their glowing plates the power of life and death—a power wielded with precision against the landed castes to the South, and any interlopers who cross into ancient Oglodi lands.

Aghanim's Shard Upgrade:
Increases the cast range and strike count of Thunder Strike. It can now also be ground targeted, where it will lie dormant for up to 7 seconds and attach to the first enemy that comes within the radius.
Partially pierces debuff immunity.
Exposure pierces debuff immunity.
Modifiers [?]
Disruptor's charged coils occasionally overload, and a singed armor plate or tuft of fur is the enemy's result.

  • Turning invulnerable or hidden does not stop Thunder Strike from hitting other units within the radius.
  • Exposes the affected target, but does not provide True Sight over it.
  • Thunder Strike hits all enemies within the Kinetic Field icon Kinetic Field if the affected target is within the Kinetic Field radius.
  • The strikes first apply the slow debuff, then the damage.
    • TALENT
      The movement speed slow increasing Talent talent immediately updates the currently active instance.
  • The debuff persists through death. If the target dies, Thunder Strike continues to apply damage at its death location.
  • Strikes the target in 2-second intervals, starting immediately as the debuff is placed, resulting in 4 strikes.
  • Can deal up to 100/220/340/460 (Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard. 150/330/510/690) damage to a single unit (before reductions).
  • Provides a 3.34-second 450 radius flying vision at the target's last location when the debuff expires or when it is dispelled.
  • Successive casts on the same unit do not stack but refresh the duration.
  • Adds area-targeting functionality to Thunder Strike, it may be unit-targeted on an enemy or ground-targeted.
    • When targeting an enemy, it follows the targeted enemy like how a regular cast does.
    • When ground-targeted, Thunder Strike lies dormant for 7 seconds.
      • If an enemy unit comes within range during its dormant duration, Thunder Strike attaches to it and strikes the target following its ability notes.
      • If no enemy unit comes within range after the dormant duration, it strikes the ground.
    • Acquiring Aghanim's Shard icon Aghanim's Shard does not update the current active instance.

Modifiers [?]
Playing with electricity can have unexpected results.
Glimpse ability

Blue visual effects marking the location at which the target lands.

  • Glimpse does not instantly move the target back. A projectile spawns from the target which travels towards the mark.
    • The projectile travels at a speed of 600, or reaches the mark in 1.8 seconds, whichever is faster.
    • The projectile provides 400 radius flying vision while traveling, which lingers for 3.34 seconds at the marked location.
  • If the target has been alive for less than 4 seconds, the target gets moved to the team's fountain instead.
  • The location at which the target lands after Glimpse is marked with a blue visual effect which is visible to everyone.
  • The target is silenced and is given a stop command as soon as it is moved back, effectively canceling channeling abilities.
  • Glimpse deals damage (before reductions) to the affected target upon arriving at the marked location.
    • Deals 25 damage per 280/200/155.56/127.27 (Talent 87.5/77.78/70/63.64) distance, based on the distance between the start and end point upon arrival, reaching max damage values at 1400 distance.
  • Does not disjoint projectiles for the target upon teleporting them.

Mana symbol
Does not pierce debuff immunity.
Does not affect debuff immune units at all, not placing the debuff, and being instantly removed as soon as the unit turns debuff immune.
Modifiers [?]
The stryder is immune to the gale-force winds that will consume its adversaries.

  • The actual Kinetic Field duration starts right after the 1-second effect delay.
    • The visual and sound effects during the effect delay are visible and audible to everyone.
  • Provides a 5.5-second 350 radius ground vision at the center of the area upon cast.
  • Stops enemies by slowing them with a movement speed slow aura. The aura has a radius of 418 and is centered on the field.
    • The slow gets exponentially stronger towards the visible barrier, which has a 350 radius.
    • This effectively causes enemy units touching the barrier to come to a halt.
    • The slow is only present when facing the barrier. Units at the barrier facing away from it are not slowed.
    • The aura's effect lingers for 0.5 seconds, resulting in an effective duration of 3.1/3.7/4.3/4.9 (Talent 5.1/5.7/6.3/6.9) seconds.
    • Since the slow is fluctuating a lot, it is not displayed in the HUD.
  • Thunder Strike icon Thunder Strike hits all enemies within the radius, as long as the enemies are affected by a Kinetic Field debuff.
    • This includes the outer edge Kinetic Field (i.e. the visible barrier with 350 radius), and other allied Kinetic Fields.

Cooldown symbol
Mana symbol
Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter.
Aghanim's Scepter Upgrade:
Mutes items.
Modifiers [?]
A summer squall in Druud is a hardship that only an Oglodi can survive.

  • Both the silence and mute are provided by an aura, its effects do not linger.
    • Static Storm applies all effects to invulnerable units, but not hidden units.
    • Does not update the current instance if the affected target is within the effect radius while acquiring the item.
    • Since the ability upgrade is determined if Disruptor has Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter equipped when the affected target(s) are within the effect radius, therefore, the effect radius applies the mute upon enemies re-entering.
  • Deals a total of 20 (Talent 26) damage instances over 6 (Talent 7.5) seconds, resulting in 0.3-second (or Talent 0.288-second) intervals.
  • The damage on each instance is determined by the given max damage per second, divided by the max instance, then multiplied by the current instance count.
    • Can deal up to 630/866.25/1102.5 (Talent 810/1113.75/1417.5) damage to a single unit (before reductions).
  • Provides a 6 (Talent 7.5)-second 550 (Talent 750) radius flying vision at the center of the radius upon cast.
  • For how much damage Static Storm deals in each interval on each level, with the duration increasing Talent talent, please refer to the chart below.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango gives health sustain so that you can last longer in lane without going back to base.
  • Clarity icon Clarity will allow Disruptor to maintain his mana pool in the laning stage. His mediocre base intelligence and static mana costs mean that casting spells in the early game will cost a disproportionately large amount of mana, so keeping it topped up in the early game can allow you to set up kills for your team more easily.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch is cheap, boosts Disruptor's low base attributes, as well as builds into Magic Wand or Mekansm.
  • Observer Ward icon Observer Ward provides map vision and allow allies to make use of knowledge of the enemies' movements. Disruptor can benefit from having vision over enemies, as Glimpse has a long cast range at high level.

Early game:

  • Boots of Speed icon Boots of Speed allow him to escape pursuing enemies, or to close in to use Glimpse, as at early levels it has a low cast range.
  • Magic Stick icon Magic Stick provides burst health and mana for any heroes to use their abilities.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand provides attributes and increases charge storage for cheap.
  • Arcane Boots icon Arcane Boots increase the size of Disruptor's mana pool and give him a way to replenish his mana for using abilities.
  • Force Staff icon Force Staff is easier to build than Blink Dagger, and can reposition himself, allies, or enemies. The extra intelligence also gives Disruptor a bigger mana pool to work with.

Late game:

  • Glimmer Cape icon Glimmer Cape allows Disruptor to get closer to initiate on enemies, and allows him to provide the same benefit to allied initiators. It can also protect allies when escaping with increased magic resistance and invisibility.
  • Guardian Greaves icon Guardian Greaves, built from Arcane Boots and Mekansm, restore both mana and health to allies, as well as dispelling debuffs off of Disruptor that may be hindering him from contributing to teamfights.

Situational items:

  • Sentry Ward icon Sentry Ward's True Sight combines with Kinetic Field's ground vision to allow Disruptor to reveal enemy wards.
  • Urn of Shadows icon Urn of Shadows provides attributes and mana regeneration that helps maintain his mana pool. The active adds more damage during ganks, or to heal teammates.
  • Tranquil Boots icon Tranquil Boots provide passive health regeneration to ensure that Disruptor is almost always at full health. The increased movement speed allows him to position for using abilities, allowing him to gank better.
  • Medallion of Courage icon Medallion of Courage gives Disruptor more armor and mana regeneration. The active lowers the armor of gank targets, or gives an ally increased armor in a fight. It can also targets Roshan to help your team claim the Aegis of the Immortal faster.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger allows Disruptor to close the distance instantly and works well with his short cast animation to disable the enemies before they can react.
  • Veil of Discord icon Veil of Discord gives Disruptor attributes and armor. The active lowers enemy magic resistance, benefitting Static Storm and allied magical nukes.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon Eul's Scepter of Divinity improves his mana pool and gives him mana regeneration, while the movement speed increases his mobility, allowing him to position for his abilities. He can use the active on himself to dispel debuffs, such as silences, or on the enemies to set up Kinetic Field.
  • Rod of Atos icon Rod of Atos improves Disruptor's attributes and gives him more mana for using abilities. The active's long cast range allows him root enemies from afar, setting up Kinetic Field to further limit their movements. The low cooldowns on Cripple and Kinetic Field allow Disruptor to use this combination often.
  • Meteor Hammer icon Meteor Hammer has great synergy with Disruptor's combo. Kinetic Field traps enemies inside the target area, and Meteor Hammer's stun in turn pins enemies inside Static Storm.
  • Pipe of Insight icon Pipe of Insight offers Disruptor and teammates magic resistance, as well as the ability to absorb magical damage, giving them an edge in fights.
  • Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard boosts Disruptor intelligence and armor; the aura can hinder enemy physical attacks by reducing their attack speed, and the active can slow enemies' movement speed, helping Kinetic Field to trap them in.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse provides Disruptor with a hard disable, something he otherwise lacks. Besides the overall attribute improvement, especially in intelligence, using hex on a target will brings their movement speed to a crawl while silencing and muting them at the same time, serving as a great leading disable before using Kinetic Field and Static Storm.
