                            1st, 2nd and I happen to be on 1k MMR - stuck in the abyss. Oh wait, 2nd has a chance to reach 9k. Unless he'll mess up with his TBD MMR matches.

                                    El keper esta my op en las partidas publicas ayuda demasiado la fuga de mana. Hoy lo jugue por primera vez y esta rotizimo como apoyo en la linea segura y tambien de router mantiene muy a controla heroes de mana dependientes ecepto tanto el strom spirit que puede moverse sin tantos problemas
                                    En fin el keper esta demasiado OP y si en sus partidas normal skill o low skill hasta higth skill todos eligen carrys y tu eres el ultimo heroe no saques otro carry y piensa en este amiguito GANDALF como una de las mejores opciones

                                    it already a money but st...

                                          This is one of the first heroes that really made me feel like I understood the game. At the time, and at my skill level, nobody knew how to deal with the fear of a kotl blast. I'd push enemies out of lane. Once he dropped out of meta I quit playing him, but I maintain a 63% winrate on the hero.

                                          Also, even though he is an absolutely totally forgotten hero that may NEVER see the light of day again, I absolutely love running this with pugna. They piggyback off of each other, providing mana and slows and setups for each other so beautifully. And nobody wants to face a pugna blast AND a kotl blast.

                                            Wow Pugna + Kotl that is quite the sick aoe combo!

                                                        Illuminate in lane is such a pain! I should maybe try playing Keeper ...

                                                          '1 skill hero' hahaha

                                                          ShoGuN

                                                            1stly the +400 cast range is a far superior talent and any player above 5k will concur.
                                                            2ndly I think you're not talking enough about real pairings like Sven/CK/Centaur and WK (that you mentioned like a passing breeze since you don't elaborate on stun+slow duration and Chakra reduction).
                                                            KotL + Kunkka is also crazy strong since tidebringer is now a spell (echosabre Attacker Kunkka gave me nightmares for a week). Storm is also potent since you can cast Chakra during ball lightning for double remnants as early as lvl 6.

                                                            Xc-

                                                              Saw bieber hex and have to agree with the cast range, kotol already has a huge range in all his abilities but add that to utility items seems superior in lvl 25 situations wich is super late game for kotol where u didnt won the game pushing but and extra range for a smoke+hex initiation can make all the difference.

                                                              brokyn

I'm just worried about the "interest" he's gaining right now... usually nerfs follows and way worse then -1sec mana leak duration.
                                                                                      WHAT DO YOU THINK? Am I right to be worried?
