Items are in-game equipment that provide heroes with bonus attributes and special abilities. They can be purchased from several shops on the game map. Lower tier items are combined into higher tier items, usually with the help of a recipe. Heroes have six item slots in their inventory, three in their backpack, and six more in their stash. Items can be picked up and delivered to their owner with a courier.

General information[edit | edit source]

  • Heroes cannot use items owned by other heroes, with a handful of exceptions. See Item Sharing for details.
  • Some items can be disassembled. See Disassembly for details.
  • Most items may be sold back to vendors for 100% of the gold spent either within 10 seconds after purchasing or until the item's active ability (if it has one) was used the first time.
    • After ten seconds have passed items may be sold back for only 50% of its price tag.
  • Some items, like the Gem of True Sight icon.png Gem of True Sight, cannot be sold.
  • Some dropped items can be destroyed by force-attacking them (default key: A).
  • Some items do not provide their effect to heroes with passive abilities providing the same or similar effect. For example, most heroes with a bash ability cannot use the passive ability from Skull Basher icon.png Skull Basher.
  • The shop at the enemy fountain can also be used to buy items, sell items, and access the stash.
