Aegis of the Immortal (N/A)

The Aegis of the Immortal (Play EE-jis) is an Item that drops from Roshan.

Though difficult to acquire, it can easily sway any battle, bringing back the hero who holds it with full HP and Mana.


[edit] Ability

Brings you to life with full health and mana 5 seconds after you die, at the location where you died. Reincarnation must be used within 6 minutes or Aegis of the Immortal disappears, healing the hero to full health and mana over 5 seconds (dispels if attacked by towers or heroes).


  • Killing Roshan will cause him to drop the Aegis.
  • The Aegis of the Immortal is removed from your inventory after reincarnating you once.
  • Aegis of the Immortal is also removed from your inventory six minutes after you pick it up, triggering the full health and mana heal (Not six minutes after Roshan is killed.) This means that it is possible for multiple Aegis to exist.
  • The effect is announced by an audio cue and a gravestone over the dead Hero, followed by a short delay before their reincarnation.

[edit] Lore

According to the characters in the Dota 2 Comic "Are We Heroes Yet" Roshan stole the Aegis of the Immortal from a Shop Keeper whom he killed. The Gods then cursed Roshan to have his life and treasure stolen repeatedly as punishment for his crime.[1]

[edit] Trivia

  • Aegis was previously an ordinary recipe item that contained three charges. After it was removed, it was then given as a droppable item from Roshan.
  • In Greek mythology, an Aegis that was described as "ageless and immortal" was presented to Zeus.

[edit] Balance changelog


  • When Aegis expires unused, it heals the hero fully over 5 seconds (regen dispels on damage from players or buildings).


  • Aegis is now removed after 6 minutes after being picked up.


  • Aegis now respawns you where you died with full hp and mana but is undroppable and unstackable.
  • The game now announces who acquires Aegis.


  • Aegis removed from shop and is dropped by Roshan instead.
