Recommended heroes[edit | edit source]

  • Moon Shard is generally purchased as a late game luxury item for carries that benefit from higher attack speed.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The item works very well with illusions especially with mana burn, critical hits and low base attack time.
  • In games where a player finds themselves with more gold than they can spend, due to having all 6 item slots filled out, it may be worth considering purchasing a Moon Shard to consume immediately.
  • It may be prudent for players to purchase the Moon Shard as their sixth item, to fill in an inventory slot and gain its full benefits while they farm a seventh item to replace Moon Shard, which only provides half the attack speed after consumption (and no night vision bonus).
