Recommended heroes[edit | edit source]

  • Wraith King icon.png Wraith King​ is possibly the safest user for a Rapier now that Arc Warden icon.png Arc Warden​'s Tempest Double no longer copies it, since Wraith King has two lives (do not try this against Anti-Mage icon.png Anti-Mage​, since he can burn away your mana even later in the game). One know combo is purchasing an Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter, Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar and then a Rapier. Once you lose both your lifes, pop BKB and start teleporting back to base, allowing your team to keep the rapier. This should not be done if the enemy have anybody with a bash or BKB-piercing stun, since they will mess up the combo and making you drop the Rapier.
  • Medusa icon.png Medusa​ can be a very good carrier of the Rapier, since she can attack up to five targets with almost no damage reduction and can survive a lot thanks to her Mana Shield icon.png Mana Shield​. Do not buy a rapier unless the battle is balanced on a knife's edge or things are looking really bad for you, since buying a rapier while ahead can result in you losing it and throwing the game for no reason.
  • Gyrocopter icon.png Gyrocopter​, like Medusa, can attack the entire enemy team at once with full damage, so a Rapier gives him a massive increase in damage output. However, unlike the other two covered here, Gyrocopter has no means of keeping himself alive except for lifesteal, so a Divine Rapier should be purchased only in the most desperate of situations.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Although it is a very expensive item, it is the most cost-effective damage item. Keep it in mind when your team is losing, Divine Rapier is a great last-stand item under such conditions.
  • No matter what, Divine Rapier should always be considered a purely situational item and never a core, since it can result in throwing the game. Also, before getting it, make sure the rest of the team agrees with the purchase, since losing it afterwards or simply buying it without permision can result in massive framing when teamed up with certain people
