  • 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 in one minute.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.

Recommended heroes[edit]


  • Vladimir'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). It's 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.
  • Vladimir'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.
  • It is often purchased by Ursa icon.png Ursa to allow him to kill Roshan alone at a low level due to the damage done by Fury Swipes icon.png Fury Swipes being affected by lifesteal.
  • The item is good to buff units under your control, especially bear from Lone Druid, wolfs from Lycan and necronomicons.
