Recommended Heroes[edit]

Axe icon.png
Axe
  • Aeon Disk can be bought after Axe's must-have items: Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger, Vanguard icon.png Vanguard and Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail, especially when the enemy team has Nukers with high damage (which will most likely be cast after Axe's Berserker's Call icon.png Berserker's Call initiation).
  • However, activating Combo Breaker will negate outgoing damage from Counter Helix icon.png Counter Helix and Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail for the duration of its effect.

Omniknight icon.png
Omniknight

  • Although Purification icon.png Purification can deal up to 500 pure AOE damage, his main goal is to heal and shield his allies if he is played as support. Reducing his damage output should not be a problem as Aeon Disk protects him from being focused.
Oracle icon.png

Tips[edit]

  • Aeon Disk can be a good choice for tanks, initiators/counter-initiators or supports who have strong defensive abilities.
  • Aeon Disk is effective against heroes that rely on ambush and/or disables followed up by quick, sudden bursts of damage to finish their prey off, wasting their efforts (and possibly lengthy cooldowns), and allowing their target to escape quickly. Such heroes include Nyx Assassin Nyx Assassin, Skywrath Mage Skywrath Mage, Necrophos Necrophos or Templar Assassin Templar Assassin.
    • On the other hand, heroes that do rely on quick bursts of damage may be better off not buying Aeon Disk, as they could waste their own spells upon attempted retaliation.
    • Aeon Disk also provides protection from heroes with strong initiation tools like Earthshaker Earthshaker or Magnus Magnus, as (most of) their disable durations will be reduced and their team cannot provide immediate follow-up damage to their initiation.
  • Consider purchasing a Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger or other mobility items with Aeon Disk, as one can use it during Combo Breaker's duration, allowing a quick escape, provided it has not been disabled beforehand. It can also be used to initiate with, protecting you should you either miss your ability or if there are enemy heroes that you missed.
  • Summoned units are not affected by the outgoing damage negation by Combo Breaker. Heroes such as Witch Doctor Witch Doctor, Shadow Shaman Shadow Shaman or Lone Druid Lone Druid can still be able to retaliate on their attacker while being briefly protected.
  • Other protective items like Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere or Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar can help delay Combo Breaker's activation in a teamfight, preventing it from being wasted by either a stray spell or a long-distance attack.
  • The item can save a split pusher from getting killed while being far from his team to run back or teleport to base.
  • Aeon Disk could be a not so good choice against disables that can't be dispelled like Black Hole icon.png Black Hole, Chronosphere icon.png Chronosphere, Static Storm icon.png Static Storm, Doom ability icon.png Doom etc, but still will give a dispellable 2.5 second protection.
