Justification / Modifications:
One level of Regurgitate early to generate Corpses. Slow and number of corpses stay the same across all levels, thus levels 2-4 can be delayed.
Max out Corpse Conversion as your main skill.

Lane Starting Items:
Logger's Hatchet, Runes of the Blight, Healing Potion, 2x Minor Totem, Mana Potion

Plated Greaves >> Power Supply >> Abyssal Skull

Plated Greaves increase the damage of your minions by 20%, giving you very fast Movement speed and Survivability. A must have.
Abyssal Skull further increases the damage of your minions to a total of 35%! And provides some good Auras including Lifesteal, Mana reg and Armor.

After Core:

Tablet of Command >> Barrier Idol / Behemoth's Heart

Tablet is much better than PK on Balphagore as he will already be in combat when he needs to reposition himself to cast the ultimate and there is no 3 sec cooldown on ToC when you get hit.
Then get Heart and Barrier Idol in order of what you need first considering the enemy lineup.

Alternative Items:

Ring of Sorcery: Allows you to harass more and gives some nice team support but greaty delays your pushing potential with greaves and skull.

Bottle: Cheap alternative to Ring of Sorcery.

Roles: Ganker
Properties: Pusher, Tank

Prefered Lane: Long/Short
Difficulty: 3 - Medium
Farming capabilities: 4 - Good
Item dependancy:3 - Medium
- Early Game / Lane Control: 4 - Strong
- Mid Game / Ganks: 4 - Strong (Sick pusher)
- Late Game / Team Fights: 4 - Strong (Good ulti and very tanky)

- One of your biggest strengths is to gank a hero with your minions then instantly go on and push that lane with the remaning minions. This puts extreme pressure on the other team and is very effective with Plated Greaves and Abyssal Skull.
- Pick up corpses even when you reached the cap. They will still give you 25 HP each!
- Regurgitate can be used as a cheap heal. With Corpse Conversion on level 4 it will regenerate 150 HP from those 6 Corpses for just 100 Mana.
- You can move while casting regurgitate. So you can activate it and run after an enemy to catch up / let your minions catch up and slow him further.
- Always try to get at least 40 Charges before using your ultimate.

- The Minions are very voulnerable to any form of AoE damage.
- If you get silenced, run away from your team mates so the curse will not spread.
