Bane Abilities


Bane takes a sip of rum, immediately regenerating 260 (+200% Total Magic Power) points of HP and increasing his Movement Speed by 30%. Lasts 2.5s. Use Again: Bane can then spit venom forward in a fan-shaped area, dealing 100 (+100% Total Physical ATK) to 200 (+200% Total Physical ATK) points of Magic Damage. The longer the venom is brewed, the more damage it will deal.

Deadly Catch

Bane summons a school of sharks to move to a designated location. When they hit enemies, they will deal 500 (+160% Total Physical ATK) points of Physical Damage and decrease Movement Speed by 30% and Attack Speed by 50%. Lasts 3s. Deals 40% of damage to Turrets.

Shark Bite

Bane's weapon is infused with Tidal Energy every 10s. Damage of his next basic attack is increased by 60-90% and deals extra splash damage to nearby enemies. Hitting an enemy hero with skills will decrease the infusion time of Tidal Energy by 2.5s. Hitting non-hero units will decrease the infusion time of Tidal Energy by 1s

Crab Claw Cannon

Bane fires a Crab Claw Cannon in a designated direction, dealing 180 (140% Total Physical ATK) points of Physical Damage to the first target hit. Then the Cannon will rebound to an enemy unit randomly, dealing 150% damage of this skill. (Attack enemy heroes first) if Bane uses Crab Claw Cannon and kills the target, Bounce Damage will increased by.

Bane Guide


Hello everyone and welcome back! Now we have the most infamous off-meta "useless like most people said", Bane. Bane is a fighter, bruiser (that's not why we're here), AOE damage dealer, pusher. I have to agree and disagree at the same time about Bane being "useless". Yes, he is useless but also one of the best pusher in game. His teamfight damage is actually decent to high. Overall, he is far from being a "dead" hero. As far as I know, he is still very fun to play, very annoying to dealt with, and also obviously still playable and not completely "useless". I'll show you how to make use of Bane's kit.





Many years ago, Captain Bane roamed the seas on his ship, the Black Pearl, and the ever-victorious sea dwellers called him the Lord of the Seven Seas. Today he has awakened from the briny depths, bringing his cursed body and a tattered Black Pearl back to these waters. He must announce his return to the sea dwellers and renew his reign here.

"The story is fabricated indeed and not a real historical story."






 Shark Bite (Passive): Every 6 seconds, his weapon is infused with the power of the tides, and his next basic attack will increase in damage by 40%-70% (affected by level) and deal 100% splash damage to nearby enemies and slow them down.

-Scales extremely well with critical damage.

-High AOE burst

-If only the cooldown can be reduced by Cooldown Reduction or buffed to 3-4 second, Bane could actually be INSANE, probably god-tier by now.

-Annoying harass early game, strong crit late game.


 Crab Claw Cannon: Fires at a specified target, dealing 375 pts pf physical damage. Enemies near the target will receive 50% splash damage. Targets damaged will have movement speed reduced 60% and armor reduced 15% for 2 seconds.

-One target slow

-Harass ability

-Armor reduction

-Max this first because…… rum… is……




 Rum: Pulls out his beloved rum and shares with his teammates. Allied heroes neat the rum will regen up to 680 pts of health.

  • Basically useless, max this last.

-But hey….a healing is still a healing….

-It can still helps a little in laning phase..



 Air Assault (Ultimate): Summons a battleship to barrage the enemy from above. Attackes 2 enemies each time, dealing 115 pts of physical damage to them while dealing 30% damage to defense turrets.

-Clear minions and push turrets extremely fast and well.

-And also good amount of damage in teamfight, early or late game.

-It's basically free damage while you can do anything else, you don't have to control the battleship as it goes.



Pro & Cons


  • Great AOE damage
  • Passive scales very well with critical damage
  • Very fast and reliable pusher
  • Very annoying to dealt with


  • Squishy
  • Lack of crowd control
  • No mobility ability, most likely no escape when get caught
  • Requires item to shine (Not really a con, no pun intended)
  • Rum is basically, yeah... useless... if only you could get drunk with it


Items & Battle Spells

I've been thinking about more bruiser or/and tanky type of Bane, but it didn't work out well. The scaling is really, really bad. But you could always go full tank Bane and be annoying as possible while split pushing, but in that case, going full damage critical build is the best choice available. Critical damage +Shark Bite (Passive) stacks and they both scale really darn well. When you crit, it actually deals TONS of damage to EVERYONE in your passive range. You could definitely imagine that.

Be sure to buy 

, stacks crit really well. And also 
 for sustain and lifesteal. 
, More crits and scale well too. These are probably the main core items. I wouldn't recommend buying a defensive item. Would be a waste of gold because your playstyle may be slightly different among the others.

Flicker is still my main and best choice. Purify, if you are not a fan of flicker. Or you can try something like arrival for more split pushing power, backdooring and stuffs as you can push really well.


Game Plan

Early game, use your Shark Bite (Passive) and Crab Claw Cannon as much as possible to try and deny your enemies' gold score. You can start with magic necklaces for sustain. In the meantime, same ol' farming strategy which is, lane-> jungle > repeat until at least you have your ultimate and/or core items. If you do have your ultimate and your enemy laner decided to go farm in the jungle or gank, use your ultimate to push the enemy turret, every damage counts. The faster you take them down, the faster your team gold increase.

From mid to late game, I assume you would have level 2 ultimate, some or all of the core items. Your plan or strategy here is to:

Split-pushing - Go to an empty lane where your enemy isn't, try to push them out while your team pressures the lane or objectives. Push as quickly as possible, if the enemy does decide to go defend or maybe try to gank you, be ready to run, don't wait till the enemy show in lane, because you will have no escape if the enemy appear in both front and back. If you are really confident, you could even 1v1, 1v2 or even 1v3 while your team pushes the other lane or getting Lords. And of course, use your ultimate when pushing towards enemy turret. Your ultimate can do reasonable damage to the enemy turrets.


Team-fight - Your teamfight style isn't to go near and basic attack everyone as much as possible, you would want to try and stay in a safe area, use your Shark Bite (Passive) ability to deal damage to enemy backline and also Crab Claw Cannon to deal some damage. Unless, you are confident that you won't die (such as isn't clashing in between 10 heroes) then you can start basic-attacking. Don't forget to use your Air Assault (Ultimate) whenever a teamfight starts.
