Hyper-carry Illidan build

WARNING: This hero has a very high skill cap.

This build is really strong when you have an Aba or Uther who can enable Illidan. Though even without an enabler, one of the few heroes that can actually 1v5.
Battered Assault
IIncrease Sweeping Strike's Basic Attack damage bonus duration from 3 to 5 seconds. If Sweeping Strike hits 2 Heroes its damage bonus is increased from 35% to 125%.
The carry tool. IMO too strong for a level 1 talent.
Sweeping Strike can go over walls and terrain. Reward: After hitting 30 Heroes with Sweeping Strike, gain a second charge.
The quest completion is important to get more level 1 value. Almost 100% uptime on Battered Assault. Synergy with level 1 and 4.
Thirsting Blade
Betrayer's Thirt's healing from Basic Attacks is increased from 30% to 50% while Sweeping Strike's damage bonus is active.
Synergy with level 1. Even vs AA heores, the increased self heal is too strong to even consider the block talent.
Transform into Demon Form at the target location, dealing 46 damage in the area. Temporarily increase your maximum Health by 220 for each Hero hit. Lasts for 18 seconds.
Can be used to dodge CC or even escape. The HP burst you get for using on enemies, can sometimes mean the difference between Carry and Feed.
Sixth Sense
Evasion reduces the damage you take from the next 2 Abilities by 75% while it's active.
Illidan's main killer is spell burst damage. 75% damage decrease on 2 abilities is very helpful for survival.
Blades of Azzinoth
Hitting 5 Heroes with Sweeping Strike allows you to activate Blades of Azzinoth to increase your Basic Attack damage by 75% for 8 seconds.
You don't need to hit 5 heroes with the same Sweeping Strike. It stores charges, at 5 charge you can activate it. Synergy with level 4.
Demonic Form
Permanently remain in Demonic Form. Metamorphosis also increases your Attack Speed by 20% and reduces the duration of disabling effects against you by 50%. You can now mount in Demonic Form.
Attack speed increase means more DPS, more self-heal, cdr. Also, reduction on CC is very useful for Illidan.
