  • As tempting as it may be, getting more than one Heart of Tarrasque is, in almost all situations, detrimental to your build, since the passive regen bonus doesn't stack and the cost of the item is very high, its generally advisable to purchase armor, evasion, magic resistance, damage return, damage block and attack slow in combination depending on the enemy team's composition.
  • A Tarrasque is effective against a team with a lot of burst magical and physical damage. The HP granted by the Tarrasque can tank two Dagon 1 icon.png Dagon level 5 (does 600 damage with 25 % magic resistance).
  • It gives 45 damage to strength heroes but only health to agility and intelligence heroes. Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi can be a better choice for them as it gives health, damage and attack speed.
  • If you are low HP during a fight, escape and stay near the fight to regen then fight back.


  • The name "Tarrasque" references the Tarrasque, an almost undefeatable monster in Dungeons & Dragons, which in return references the Tarasque, a mythological dragon-hybrid that was tamed by Saint Martha.
