Broodmother is a melee character. Her primary attribute is agility. The hero is mainly taken as a midlaner. Most effective in the mid game.
With early dominance, Broodmother is almost unstoppable. Thanks to Insatiable Hunger, she is able to frontlane and deal significant damage to enemies. And with Aghanim's Shard, the character becomes even more effective in long fights. The Silken Bola ability makes a fight even harder for opponents. Spin Web makes the hero very mobile and allows him to pass through any obstacles. But the character’s main weapon is the Spawn Spiderlings ability, which allows Broodmother to push the lane with more intensity and farm significantly faster. Aghanim's Scepter grants her the Spinner's Snare ability, which can be useful during allies’ retreat or taking a certain position. It will not allow enemies to make a sudden attack too.
For centuries, Black Arachnia the Broodmother lurked in the dark lava tubes beneath the smoldering caldera of Mount Pyrotheos. Later, the Vizier of Greed built his ziggurat on the slopes of the dead volcano, attracting many looters. When one of the thieves accidentally smashed a little spider, Broodmother lost her temper. Now she headed for the surface, declaring her intent to rid the world of each and every possible invader, down to the last Hero if necessary, until she could ensure a safe and wholesome environment for her precious spiderspawn.
