The Aeon Disk is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Armor. However, it can only be completed with items from the Secret Shop.

Additional information[edit]

  • Status resistance bonuses from multiple Aeon Disks do not stack.
  • Does not stack with the status resistance of Enrage. Enrage takes priority.


Combo Breaker
Whenever you take damage and your health falls below 70% a strong dispel is applied and you gain a 2.5 second buff that causes all damage you deal and are dealt to be reduced to zero. Only triggers on player based damage.
Health Threshold: 70%
Duration: 2.5
Damage Reduction: 100%
Cooldown: 115
Buff Combo Breaker Buff: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Triggers upon taking damage greater than 0 (before reductions) from enemy and allied players.
    • Does not trigger on self-inflicted damage, or on damage flagged as HP Removal.
  • Applies a strong dispel on the wielder upon activating.
    • This means it only dispels debuffs which were applied before the activating damage, even when an effect applies a debuff right after its damage.
  • The damage instance triggering Combo Breaker is negated.
    • However, if the owner has above 70% health, it is negated so that their health does not drop below 70%.
  • Does not protect against instantly killing effects.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Axe icon.png


  • 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 initiation).
  • However, activating Combo Breaker will negate outgoing damage from Counter Helix and Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail for the duration of its effect.
Batrider icon.png


  • With Aeon disk he still has chance to Lasso and pull his target even if got caught.
Brewmaster icon.png


  • Brewmaster is a tanky hero and has strong team-fight abilities and often focused to prevent him casting his Ultimate. Aeon Disk almost guarantees him that he will be able to use Primal Split no matter what.
Bristleback icon.png


  • Bristleback is one of the best tanks and frontliners and Aeon Disk makes him even harder to kill.
Dazzle icon.png


  • Dazzle is often focused to prevent him from saving core hero. This item makes it harder.
  • Although damage from his Shadow Wave can be significant, his main purpose is not damage.
Earthshaker icon.png


  • He can turn-around team-fight with his strong stuns and nukes.
Enigma icon.png


  • Enigma is a formidable disabler and with Aeon Disk he can turn-around team-fight with Black Hole.
Faceless Void icon.png

Faceless Void

  • Chronosphere is one of the best disables in the game and Aeon Disk gives him high chances to place it even if he got caught.
  • Aeon Disk synergies excellently with Time Walk allowing him not just to escape but heal back the damage.
Magnus icon.png


  • If he gets caught before his initiation, Aeon Disk gives him a chance to counter-initiate with Reverse Polarity or just escape with Skewer.
Omniknight icon.png


  • Omniknight could be played as frontline hero to utilize his Degen Aura and other small ranged spells.
  • Although 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


  • Oracle has strong defensive abilities and is often focused to prevent him from saving core heroes. Aeon Disk gives him a chance to survive and cast his abilities on himself or allies.
Vengeful Spirit icon.png

Vengeful Spirit

  • This item will protect Vengeful Spirit after swapping her position with Nether Swap.
Shadow Shaman icon.png

Shadow Shaman

  • Shadow Shaman is a high priority target before he can place his wards. Aeon Disk can extend his life in a battle, long enough for him to cast his ultimate.


  • Entry


  • 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 minimap icon.png Nyx Assassin, Skywrath Mage minimap icon.png Skywrath Mage, Necrophos minimap icon.png Necrophos or Templar Assassin minimap icon.png Templar Assassin.
    • Conversely, heroes that 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 minimap icon.png Earthshaker or Magnus minimap icon.png 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 minimap icon.png Witch Doctor, Shadow Shaman minimap icon.png Shadow Shaman or Lone Druid minimap icon.png 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, Chronosphere, Static Storm, Doom etc, but still will give a dispellable 2.5 second protection.
  • Techies minimap icon.png Techies mines deal full damage while they are under the effect of Combo Breaker.
