Items are in-game equipment that provide heroes with bonus attributes and special abilities. They can be purchased from several shops on the game map. Lower tier items are combined into higher tier items, usually with the help of a recipe. Heroes have six item slots in their inventory, three in their backpack, and six more in their stash. Items can be picked up and delivered to their owner with a courier.

General information[edit]

  • Heroes cannot use items owned by other heroes, with a handful of exceptions. See Item Sharing for details.
  • Some items can be disassembled. See Disassembly for details.
  • Most items may be sold back to vendors for all of the gold spent, if sold within 10 seconds after purchasing, and the item's active ability (if it has one) has not been used yet.
    • After ten seconds have passed, or the item's active ability has been used, selling an item only recoups 50% of its original price.
    • Gem of True Sight icon.png Gem of True Sight and Divine Rapier icon.png Divine Rapier cannot be sold at any time.
    • Enchanted Mango icon.png Enchanted Mango cannot be sold after the preperation time.
  • Most dropped items can be destroyed by force-attacking them (default key: A).
  • Some items do not provide their effect to heroes with passive abilities providing the same or similar effect. For example, most heroes with a bash ability cannot use the passive ability from Skull Basher icon.png Skull Basher.
  • Some items have effects that only apply to heroes that are ranged or melee.
  • The shop at the enemy fountain can also be used to buy items, sell items, and access the stash.
    • The Secret Shops and Side Lane Shops have a restricted inventory, and cannot be used to access the hero's stash.


There are three different shops per faction. One Base Shop, one Secret Shop and one Side Lane Shop. In the shop areas, items can be swapped from the backpack without time penalty.

Base Shop[edit]

The Base Shops are located within the Fountain are behind the Ancients. All basic items except the secret ones can be bought there. Additionally a majority of the upgrades can be completed there.

These items were only available during limited time events or had an account bound limited amount of uses. Besides the river vials, all of these items got removed from the game files and are no longer functioning and can no longer be created with cheats in custom lobbies. The river vials, although still within the game, can no longer be acquired or used, as they expired.
