While the world above burned, within the deepest crevices of Newerth an abominable conglomeration of sentient gels, pathogens, and other lurkers of the deep simmered in a primordial pool, slowly evolving and multiplying. From this cesspool emerged the Parasite, sickeningly intelligent and chaotically evil.
Parasite is a jungle hero who is extremely powerful in one-vs-one situations. He is capable of staying active in ganking while maintaining his progression in the neutrals.

Experience and Gold granted to Parasite when the Infested Creep dies is now a static 125 Experience and 75 Gold, rather than the values based off of the Infested Creep.
