Cannot be used by illusions. Illusions provide the aura, but do not benefit from it.


  • Only increases base damage and that given by the primary attribute of the affected units. Raw bonus damage is not increased.
  • Restores mana in form of mana regeneration, so it regenerates 0.08 mana in 0.1 second intervals, which makes 0.8 mana per second.
  • The flat mana regen bonus is not considered by percentage mana regeneration increases.
  • Regenerates up to 48 mana and 180 health in one minute.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Vladmir's Offering is normally picked up in the early-mid game as it cannot be upgraded into a better item (like Helm of the Dominator icon.png Helm of the Dominator to Satanic icon.png Satanic). Its wide variety of bonuses and useful components makes it an attractive choice for melee heroes.
  • However, in the lategame a support should pick it up for the damage and armor auras.
  • Vladmir's Offering assists with pushing due to conferring armour and lifesteal to nearby creeps, making them withstand hits from enemy creeps, heroes and towers for longer.
  • Since Vladmir's Aura can't be toggled off, its status buff icon is always visible on creeps. Therefore it is possible to detect invisible enemy heroes holding Vladmir's Offering by checking enemy creeps' status buff icons.
