The Observer and Sentry Wards, also known as the Ward Dispenser is a stacked item formed in the inventory from Observer Wards and Sentry Wards.

Additional information[edit]

  • This item automatically combines Observer Ward icon.png Observer Wards and Sentry Ward icon.png Sentry Wards into a single item, opening up an extra space in the inventory.
  • The sell value adapts based on the number of Observer Wards and Sentry Wards in a stack.
  • Unlike other combined items, ward stacks cannot be disassembled within 10 seconds after assembling them.
  • Always starts with Observer Wards being primarily selected.

Notes:

  • Places the currently highlighted ward. To switch, double click on the item or double press its hotkey.
  • Switching does not count as a spell cast, so it does not cancel any current order, including channeling spells, nor does it break invisibility.
  • Cannot be placed inside the fountain area (including a small area in front of the ramp), or in Roshan icon.png Roshan's pit.
  • Wards are completely shareable. However, holding Control allows the owner to give an ally just one ward, instead of the whole stack.
  • The cooldown only triggers upon placing wards. Switching the currently active ward does not trigger it.
