The Side Lane Shops are two extra shops located on the Radiant side of the bottom lane and the Dire side of the top lane, near the river. The Side Lane Shop sells certain items away from base, allowing heroes to continue laning for longer before returning to base.
All items found at the Side Lane Shop can be bought at the main Base Shop, except Energy Booster and Vitality Booster, which are also found at the Secret Shop.
The top Side Lane Shop is tended by Quirt; the bottom by Sithil.
These items can be completed solely with items from the Side Lane Shop:
Notably, Tranquil Boots and Ring of Basilius cannot be completed at the Side Lane Shop since they require a Ring of Protection.
