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.
    • This means that 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.


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