Additional information[edit]


Energy Charge
Target an allied unit to instantly restore 15 health and mana per charge stored.

Max 20 charges. Automatically gains a charge every seconds and whenever a visible enemy within 1200 range uses an ability.
Default Cast Range: 500
Buffer Cast Range: 750
Radius: 1200
Passive Charge Gain Interval: 15
Charges per Cast Spell: 1
Max Charges: 20
Health and Mana Restored per Charge: 15
Cooldown: 13


  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • If the target is more than 750 range away, the caster moves to the target until it is within 500 range before casting.
    • If a cast order is given on a target which is within 750 range already, the caster does not need to move closer and casts it right away.
  • The owner does not have to face the target to use this on it.
  • Passively gains a charge every 15, starting 15 after entering the inventory. Works even while dead.
  • Gains 1 charge whenever a visible enemy unit, including neutral creeps, uses an ability within the radius.
  • The item must be in the owner's inventory to gain any charges. Does not gain charges while in the backpack, on the ground, in the stash, or on the courier.
  • Can restore up to 300 health and mana when having the maximum amount of charges.
  • When having multiple Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick-based items in the inventory, only the oldest one will gain charges from cast abilities. If it is full, the second oldest one starts to gain charges.
    • Each owned Holy Locket has its own timer for gaining passive charges and do not interfere with each other.
  • Upon upgrading a Magic Wand into a Holy Locket, all its current charges are carried over.

Holy Blessing
Can be used by illusions.
Amplifies heals you provide by 35%.
Heal Amplification: 35%


  • Unlike regular heal amplification, Holy Blessing amplifies outgoing healing, not incoming healing.
    • This means any healing provided by the owner gets ampified, regardless of who the target is.
    • Vice versa, other sources of healing applied to the owner are not amplified.
  • Multiple instances of Holy Blessing do not stack.
  • Stacks diminishingly with other sources of heal amplification.

Regeneration Aura
Can be used by illusions. Pierces spell immunity.
Grants 3 health regeneration to allies.
Radius: 1200
Health Regeneration Bonus: 3
Aura Linger Duration: 0.5
Buff modifier_item_holy_locket_aura: Undispellable. Persists death.


  • Multiple instances of Holy Locket's Regeneration Aura do not stack.
    • Fully stacks with other sources of health regeneration, including Headdress icon.png Headdress and its other upgrades.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.

Recommended heroes[edit]

Abaddon icon.png
  • Holy Locket increases the healing from Mist Coil.
  • Holy Locket's health regeneration and mana help Abaddon use his supporting abilities more often.
  • Has very high synergy with his Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter upgraded Borrowed Time, as it is based on Mist Coil.

Io icon.png
  • Io benefits from Holy Locket's heal amplification more than other heroes due to the mechanics of Tether.
    • Holy Locket amplifies Io's self-heals by 35%, and then the outgoing heal to Io's Tethered ally by another 50% multiplied by another 35% from Holy Locket.
    • At max level Tether, Holy Locket thereby increases the rate at which Io transfers health from self-heals from the default 150% to a net 273.375%.
