The Iron Branch is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under attributes. It is a very cheap and cost effective attributes item, and can be used to plant a temporary tree.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

One Iron Branch grants a total of 19 health, 0.03 health regeneration, 0.14 armor, 1 attack speed, 13 mana, 0.04 mana regeneration and 1 attack damage.

Iron Branches do not stack in the inventory. Each of them requires its own slot.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Plant Tree
Ability
Target Point
Targets the ground to plant a happy little tree that lasts for 20 seconds.
Cast Range: 200
Duration: 20

Notes:

  • Creates a regular tree at the target point. This tree is smaller than the other trees on the map and has a smaller collision size.
  • This means it blocks vision and is treated like any other tree by all abilities which interact with trees.
  • Tango icon.png Tango heals for twice as long when targeting an Iron Branch tree, using the ward duration, instead of tree duration.
  • The particles around the tree are visible to everyone, make it clear that it is a planted tree.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The item is used early game for a cheap boost of attributes and it is then made into a Magic Wand or a Mekansm, or sold.
  • Due to how efficient the Iron Branch is money-wise, it is a good idea, if you have spare inventory slots, to buy as many as you can. If you cannot micro the courier effectively, it is a good idea to leave one space for another item that you will get in the future.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The happy little trees in the active ability description is a reference to Bob Ross, a popular painter who often used the phrase on his television program, The Joy of Painting.
  • The planted tree uses the same model as the Sprout icon.png Sprout trees and is surrounded by the same effects as a tree enchanted with Eyes in the Forest icon.png Eyes In The Forest.
