|Weapon of choice among brutes, the bearer sacrifices his life energy to gain immense strength and power.|
| Bought From|
|Bonus|| +7 HP regeneration|
+25 Attack speed
Heroes can buy multiple Armlets, but the active effect does not stack.
One Armlet of Mordiggian grants the following
- While toggled off, grants a total of 7 health regeneration, 5 armor, 25 attack speed and 9 attack damage.
- While toggled on, grants a total of 475 health, 7.75 health regeneration, 5 armor, 25 attack speed and 40 (65 to strength heroes) attack damage.
By turning on the armlet you will gradually gain 475 hp due to the strength it gives you. You lose the health again when you deactivate it, but you cannot go below 1 hp. This can be used to your advantage. If you are below 475 hp, you will lose all but 1 health. When you activate it again (as quickly as possible, so the enemy won't have time to kill you when you're at 1 hp) you will end up with 475 hp, more than what you had before. This can make you survive much longer assuming sufficient burst damage is not received.
- Heroes whose default item build includes Armlet of Mordiggian as a core item: Alchemist, Chaos Knight, Huskar, Legion Commander, Lifestealer, Slardar, Wraith King.
- Heroes whose default item build includes Armlet of Mordiggian as a situational item: Dragon Knight, Night Stalker, Spirit Breaker.
- This item is very good with lifesteal, because when activated together your damage output with lifesteal will make up for the 40 hp per second loss.
- The item gives the highest strength/gold and raw damage/gold (65). It is also useful on strength heroes with illusions or abilities that increase their base damage (like Sven's ultimate).
- After buying it, you will have enough DPS and armor to go for a disabler like a Skull Basher.
- Armlet of Mordiggian is named after Mordiggian, a deity in the Cthulhu Mythos created by Clark Ashton Smith in his story The Charnel God (1934), whose powers consist of sucking away life force and whose cult consists entirely of ghouls.
- Lone Druid's Spirit Bear is normally affected by the HP drain, and does not benefit from the strength bonus.
