Recommended heroes[edit]

Alchemist icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque amplifies Chemical Rage's high health regeneration.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque's health amplification works with Lifestealer's Feast to keep him constantly at high health.
Axe icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque stacks well with Axe's high health regeneration, and makes him significantly tankier. Additionally, it allows him to more easily use Berserker's Call several times in a team fight, due to its ability to quickly regenerate the large amount of health he will typically lose when casting this spell in a lategame situation.
Centaur Warrunner icon.png
  • Because both Double Edge and Stampede both deal damage based on strength, Heart of Tarrasque's strength bonus is great for him. The health regeneration will allow him to use Double Edge against creeps freely, as well as allow him to build Return charges by tanking tower attacks.
Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque's regeneration works with Bloodseeker's lifesteal to keep him constantly at full health.
Bristleback icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque makes Bristleback much harder to take down, allowing him to dish out continuous damage with Quill Spray.
Chaos Knight icon.png
  • Phantasms benefit greatly from Heart of Tarrasque, making them much harder to take down.
Dragon Knight icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque's regeneration synergizes well with Dragon Blood bonus armor and regeneration.
Huskar icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque helps Huskar quickly regain the health he expends to use his abilities, and makes him harder to kill once he's singled out an enemy with Life Break.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque makes Phantom Lancer's illusions much more durable, and allows him to temporarily escape fights and come back after a short period of regeneration.
Phoenix icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque helps Phoenix quickly regain the health it expends to use its abilities.
Pudge icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque's strength stacks well with Pudge's strength gain from Flesh Heap, and amplifies the damage and healing from Dismember.
Spectre icon.png
  • Heart of Tarrasque gives Spectre the tankiness to deal much more damage via Radiance (Active) icon.png Radiance and Dispersion.
Io icon.png
  • With Tether's high heal transfer, Io can provide high healing to a single ally even during a fight by avoiding damage.



  • Heart of Tarrasque is effective against teams with a lot of burst damage.

  • Heart of Tarrasque is very valuable item when you have Oracle minimap icon.png Oracle in your team as False Promise enables passive regeneration even while fighting enemy heroes.
