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 known 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 you need it to end the game or if things are looking very bad for your team, 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 three 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.
  • Kunkka icon.png Kunkka​ can do extreme damage to the entire enemy team when he combines Divine Rapier icon.png Divine Rapier and Daedalus icon.png Daedalus with his Tidebringer icon.png Tidebringer​. He can keep himself alive by applying X Marks the Spot icon.png X Marks the Spot​ on himself and attack the enemies then use X Marks the Spot icon.png X Marks the Spot​ again to get back to safety.
  • Ember Spirit icon.png Ember Spirit​ can deal extreme damage to the enemy team when using Sleight of Fist icon.png Sleight of Fist​, He is also capable of surviving an enemy attack due to his Fire Remnant icon.png Fire Remnant​ ability. Be careful of enemies who has stun since you wont be able to cast Fire Remnant icon.png Fire Remnant​ while under the effect

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 as to not provoke possible flaming afterwards.
