Life break allows huskar to jump on an enemy hero with damaging himself and the enemy hero, As huskar damages himself he gets faster and faster applying more fire arrows, he is hard to deal with. His aghanim’s sceptre makes this more of an annoyance for the enemy:- 

  • Sceptre changes his ultimate as when he jumps on an enemy hero the enemy cannot run away or hit someone else it can only attack huskar and do a duel with him this provides husker to get his hp low where he becomes a beast with incredible speed and damage.

His ultimate Juxtapose gives him 50% chance and total 10 illusions at max level on hitting a hero, His illusions deal only 22% of his main damage but in bulk they are hard to handle. Aghanim’s sceptre gives his ultimate a boost :-

  • Making his passive ultimate an active that instantly makes max illusions(10) that his ultimate provides, With this when his illusions run out or he wants to escape he simply can press the ultimate and make people mad.

Templar is mostly played at mid but she does not provide map control at early stage of the game she only farms, After she gets desolator or dagger she jumps into the fray killing people left and right. Her abilities provide her range, increased damage and slowing people with her ultimate. Aghanim’s sceptre adds:-

  • A new ability called psionic projection through which templar can teleport to her traps placed on the map with insane range and when using her 2nd spell meld you can also teleport without breaking it.
  • Templar slows her enemies with her ultimate then jumps on them with psionic projection instantly dealing massive damage to their face and killing them.

Templar is a hard hero to play and can quickly fall off if not played fast enough. In the late game she is not as useful as she is in the early game.
