  • Getting armor and evasion in combination increase your EHP a lot.
  • If you are low HP during a fight, escape and stay near the fight to regen then fight back.
  • 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 level 5 (does 600 damage with 25 % magic resistance). You can also get a blademail to return the damage you tank.
  • It gives 40 damage to strength heroes, combine it with attack speed to increase your DPS.
  • 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 purchuase other health boosting items such as Eye of Skadi and Octarine Core depending on the enemy team's composition


  • 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.
