Buff Item Ring Of Basilius Aura Bonus: Undispellable.


  • Does not interrupt the user's channeling spells upon toggling.
  • Restores mana in the form of mana regeneration, so it regenerates 0.065 mana in 0.1 second intervals, which is 0.65 mana per second.
  • The flat mana regen bonus is not considered by percentage mana regeneration increases.
  • Regenerates up to 39 mana in one minute.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.

Recommended heroes[edit]


  • When the Basilius Aura is on, allied creeps gain an additional 2 armor, which is useful if you want to push the creep advantage in a lane. The aura should be turned off if you do not want the lane to get pushed.
  • In the early game and even into the mid game, the boost of mana regen is extremely useful for heroes with low intelligence growth like Troll Warlord minimap icon.png Troll Warlord.
  • When having 33 or more intelligence, Sage's Mask icon.png Sage's Mask provides more mana regeneration (0.665) than a Ring of Basilius.


  • Basilius is derived from the Greek word Basileus, meaning "king" or "emperor".
