The Moon Shard is an item listed at the Main Shop, under Common. However, it is assembled entirely with items from the Secret Shop.

Additional Information[edit]

  • Moon Shards do not stack in the inventory. Each bought instance requires its own slot.
    • The attack speed from multiple instances fully stacks.

Abilities[edit]

Cast Range: Global
Attack Speed Bonus: 60

Notes:

  • Although this ability is lost upon consuming the Moon Shard, the buff from consumption still grants half the bonus night vision.


Recommended heroes[edit]

  • Moon Shard is generally purchased as a late game luxury item for carries that benefit from higher attack speed and night vision without taking an inventory slot.

Tips[edit]

  • The item works very well with illusions especially with mana burn, critical hits and low base attack time.
  • In games where a player finds themselves with more gold than they can spend, due to having all 6 item slots filled out, it may be worth considering purchasing a Moon Shard to consume immediately.
  • It may be prudent for players to purchase the Moon Shard as their sixth item, to fill in an inventory slot and gain its full benefits while they farm a seventh item to replace Moon Shard, which only provides half the attack speed and night vision after consumption.

Trivia[edit]

  • Prior to the July 14, 2017 Patch, Moon Shard's active ability, Consume, did not have an official name. The name was taken from the Dota 2 Wiki and officially implemented into Dota 2.
