Bio[]

Primal Beast minimap iconPrimal Beast
"RAAWR"
Though the deterioration of the Mistwood and its evolution from idyllic expanse to death-filled tanglewild was a slow, wizard-fueled process, most scholars agree the true beginning of the end was marked by the interdimensional arrival of the Primal Beast. A creature hatched into an existence devoid of all feeling but hunger and pain, aeons of carnage shaped the Primal Beast into the apex predator on a planet filled with violent terrors. Desperately banished by would-be masters with failed hopes to control him, the beast was cast into a new world — one where he could ascend from mere hungry predator into an invasive killing machine with nothing able to stand in his way.

For thousands of years, the Mistwood served as massive stomping ground for the beast's destructive play — and even the feared durana beasts made for tasty snacks. Indeed, there could be no rivals for the beast's territory, only minor annoyances. Until one such tiny annoyance employed vile trickery to trap the unstoppable Beast in the Gleipnir.

There he might have remained subdued for eternity, were it not for the unpredictable powers of the Continuum Device. Now, freed from both Gleipnir and Vault, far afield from the Mistwood, and much closer to inhabited lands, the beast sets his snout towards new slaughters and the delights of savage destruction — and the paltry fires of civilization will do little to keep this ageless monster at bay.

The Beast's single-minded focus on chosen prey leaves all other considerations scattered in his ruinous wake.

  • Primal Beast is disarmed during Onslaught. Attack orders behave like move orders (Keyboard White Mouse Right Right Click or M) while disarmed, causing them to change the direction as well.
  • Moves Primal Beast forward at a speed of 1200. This affects the following things while charging:
    • Primal Beast does not need to turn in order to cast targeted abilities or items.
    • Can charge through impassable terrain.
  • During the wind-up, Onslaught is canceled in the following conditions:
    • Either by stun, hex, sleep, fear, taunt sources, or is affected by other forced movement sources.
    • When Primal Beast turns invulnerable or hidden, or upon death.
    • Silence does not cancel the wind-up, but prevents using the Begin Onslaught icon Begin Onslaught sub-ability to start the charge early.
    • However, the charge can still be started early with the previously mentioned orders.
  • Stun, taunt and hex sources do not cancel the charge but prevent Primal Beast from changing directions.
    • Additionally, stun pauses Onslaught's charge, and Primal Beast continues charging once the stun duration expires.
  • While charging, Onslaught can be canceled in the following conditions:
    • When Primal Beast is given any targeted order that interrupts channeling abilities, including Hold (H) and Stop (S) commands.
    • If Primal Beast gets slept, feared, or is affected by other forced movement sources.
    • When channeling Town Portal Scroll icon Teleport.
  • The max charge distance cannot be increased with cast range bonuses.
  • For better readability, the turn rate is given as degrees per second, instead of radians per 0.03 seconds.
    • During the charge, 50° degrees per second equals 0.87 radians, which is a turn rate of 0.044.
  • Every enemy (except Roshan icon Roshan) coming within 190 range of Primal Beast while charging gets damaged, knocked back, and stunned.
    • Allies are only knocked back. Does not interrupt allied channeling abilities.
    • Units are knocked 200 range away from Primal Beast over 0.2 seconds. Can knock units over impassable terrain.
  • Onslaught first applies the damage, then the knockback, and then the stun.
  • Destroys trees within 100 radius around Primal Beast while charging, and around units during the knockback.

  • Replaces Onslaught icon Onslaught until the sub-ability is used or the wind-up ends.
  • For better readability, the turn rate is given as degrees per second, instead of radians per 0.03 seconds.
    • 70° degrees per second equals 1.22 radians, which is a turn rate of 0.061.
  • The direction can be changed with a move order (Keyboard White Mouse Right Right Click or M).
    • A line indicator with a width of 2000 is cast in front of Primal Beast while winding up, showing the path Primal Beast will take.
    • The line's length extends the longer Onslaught is wound up, indicating the charge distance based on the wind-up time.
    • The indicator is visible to the player only. Neither allies nor enemies can see it.
  • During the wind-up, if Primal Beast is given any order that cancels channeling abilities, the wind-up ends and the charge begins.
    • This means non-targeted abilities that do not interrupt channeling (e.g. Shadow Blade icon Shadow Walk) do not end the wind-up.
    • If ended by a targeted order, the order may get executed while charging if the target comes within range, considering no other orders are given while charging.
  • Goes into a 0.3-second cooldown right after Onslaught is cast, this is to prevent accidental double-casts prematurely ending the wind-up.

Death
As the only member of his species to arrive on this world, locals can only speculate on the Beast's size relative to his kin. Such observation would prove easier of course if the subject didn't eat everything it sees and destroy most of what it doesn't.

  • Does not interrupt Primal Beast's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Primal Beast is disarmed for the duration.
    • TALENT
      Increases Primal Beast's magic resistance to 43.75% while active.
    • Stacks multiplicatively with other sources of magic resistance.
  • Immediately stomps once upon cast, without requiring to move.
    • This only happens upon receiving the buff, refreshing the buff does not cause another immediate stomp.
  • Trample releases a single pulse when Primal Beast collectively moves a distance of 140 on the x and y-axis.
    • This includes forced movement sources and teleporting effects, including Blink-based abilities as well.
    • Teleporting effects may only add up to 140 range to the distance counter, no matter how far the actual teleported distance was.
    • This means teleporting a distance of 280 still results in one stomp, and not multiple times based on the entire distance.
    • When Primal Beast moves or teleport a distance greater than 500 within 0.1 seconds, it does not stomp.
  • Considering default movement speed of 310, Trample can stomp up to 2.21 times per second.
    • For how many stomps per second Primal Beast can perform at varying movement speed values, please refer to the chart below.
  • Does not perform instant attacks. Trample deals regular spell damage within the area.
    • This means they do not trigger any attack modifier or on-hit effects, and ignore evasion.
    • Only flat bonus attack damage sources from Primal Beast can increase the damage dealt.
      • Other attack damage bonus sources (e.g. Sidekick icon Sidekick or percentages bonuses) are not considered.
      • The attack damage as damage value is not capped at 0 attack damage, meaning if Primal Beast has negative attack damage, Trample deals 0 damage per stomp.
    • The average damage dealt can be defined as
      expr
      15/30/45/60 + Self(MainAtk + BonusAtk) × 35% (Talent 55%)
    • This means it is affected by outgoing spell damage amplification and can spell lifesteal.
  • Destroys trees around Primal Beast while active.
  • TALENT
    Sets Primal Beast's current movement speed as its base movement speed for the buff duration.
    • Fully overrides any flat or percentage-based movement speed reductions on Primal Beast, from items and abilities alike.
    • Does not work against roots sources, trapping barriers and other set movement speed effects.

    • Counts player-based damage values of all 3 damage types between 20 – 2000 that is dealt to Primal Beast.
    • The damage counter does not count damage flagged as HP Removal (e.g. Dispersion icon Dispersion).
    • The damage counter and all stacks reset if no damage has been taken in the last 20 seconds.
    • Any exceeding damage is completely ignored, this means if an enemy deals an instance of 100 damage, it gains only one stack.
    • Gaining a new stack refreshes the duration of already existing stacks.
    • Does not gain any stacks while on cooldown.
    • Treats Roshan icon Roshan-based damage as creep-based damage.
  • The passive buff is always present but is hidden when having no stacks.
    • The ability icon changes at 0 stacks, 1 – 4 stacks, and at 5 stacks.
    • Also plays a sound effect when reaching 5 stacks, audible to the player only.
    • A number on the icon shows how many stacks Primal Beast currently has.
  • Uproar cannot be cast while having no stacks.
    • Uproar does not interrupt Primal Beast's channeling abilities upon cast.
    • When cast, goes on a 7-second cooldown. The cooldown timer on the ability icon is displayed in red.
    • This cooldown is not affected by any cooldown reduction and cooldown reset sources, however, it is affected by Time Dilation icon Time Dilation.
    • Although the buff upon cast is dispellable, doing so does not affect the cooldown.
  • Grants Primal Beast flat bonus attack damage, bonus armor and a basic dispel upon cast.
    • Grants Primal Beast 50/100/150/200 attack damage and 10/15/20/25 (Talent 45/50/55/60) armor at max stacks.
    • Slows enemy movement speed by 40% at max stacks.
    • For how much attack damage and armor Primal Beast gains and enemies are slowed per stack, please refer to the chart below.
  • The slow debuff on enemies has a number visible on it, showing them how many stacks Primal Beast had upon cast.
    • However, the buff on Primal Beast does not have a number on it.
  • Uproar releases 3 waves of damaging lines upon cast.
    • Creates a damaging line on every 180°th/90°th/60°th/45°th/36°th based the number of Uproar stacks.
    • The distance between the damaging lines is always even, and is centered on and follows Primal Beast for the full duration. Lines are also created upon Primal Beast's death location.
    • The area of every single damaging line is shaped like a cone. Upon cast, a total of 2 lines are released towards the east and the west of Primal Beast, and the others adapt accordingly.
  • The damaging lines travel at a speed of 500 and has an effect width of 75.
    • After travelling for 625 distance in 1.25 seconds, the initial damaging line splints from one to two with a 30° angle.
    • The newly splintered lines use the same travel distance and travel speed and do not further splinter.
    • Although the total effect radius is 1400, units within certain cone areas might not be damaged.
    • Each damaging line cannot hit the same unit more than once per cast upon expanding.
      • Splintered lines are considered as new lines, and reapplies the damage if the unit is hit by the newly splintered lines, following the same notes as above.
    • The lines first deal damage, then apply Break on the affected unit.

  • Upon selecting the ability, a red circle appears around Primal Beast, indicating the minimum distance.
    • The min distance is not affected by cast range bonuses.

Though none are certain whether his utterances have true meaning, most concede the Beast's powerful grip and tendency to smash his enemies into naught but pulp and pieces communicates his intent well enough.

  • The targeting reticule must be centered over an enemy unit.
  • Fully disables the target as long as it is channeled.
  • Teleports the target 200 distance in front of Primal Beast upon cast.
    • Does not teleport Roshan icon Roshan upon cast, but teleports him once the channeling stops in any way.
  • Slams the target in 0.75-second intervals, starting 0.75 seconds after cast, resulting in up to 3 (Talent 5) instances.
    • Can deal up to the following damage per slam (before reductions) to the target and enemies within the radius:

    • Can deal a total of 435/645/855 (Talent 825/1275/1725) damage for its entire duration.
  • Pulverize first applies the damage, then the stun.
  • During Pulverize, the target cannot be affected by any forced movement sources.
    • Despite the target being rotated along the x-axis and z-axis when it hits the ground, and its model being Pulverized face down towards Primal Beast, the target's facing direction is not changed in any way.
    • On each slam, the affected target is being moved up 350 ‒ 500 distance and the same approximate distance values down along the z-axis, and can be affected by distance-based abilities (e.g. Rupture icon Rupture).
  • Pulverize ends immediately if the target gets teleported or is affected by fear, or when Primal Beast is being moved more than 200 distance.
    • It also ends if Pounce icon Pounce or Soulbind icon Soulbind expire on the target during Pulverize.
  • When cast on Roshan icon Roshan, Primal Beast does not slam him into the ground but instead throws punches at him.
    • This animation difference only has cosmetic purposes, the ability still applies all its effects normally.
  • Uses a different and louder sound effect when cast on heroes.
  • Only slams the primary target. The secondary target is teleported next to the primary target when the duration ends.

Trivia[]

  • The Primal Beast first debuted in Aghanim's Labyrinth: The Continuum Conundrum as the event's final boss, appearing several months before he was released as a playable hero.
  • An easter egg was added before the hero release, where at the game start, all heroes were stunned followed by a Roar.
  • The Primal Beast is likely based on early concepts of a unreleased hero "Wyvern Outrider" developed during the DotA era.
  • The Primal Beast wears three skulls on the "barding" that he wears as a sign of his previous imprisonment, possibly as trophies.
