Strength Strength attribute symbol.png is one of the three primary attributes with the theme of defending against magic damage. It grants health, health regeneration, and magic resistance to every hero. Strength heroes also gain attack damage per point of strength.

Bonuses[edit]

For each point of strength, a hero gains the following bonuses:

Additionally, strength heroes also get 1 attack damage per point of strength.

The health bonus is only applied to the maximum health pool. The hero's current health is not increased, but keeps the current health percentage. To gain 1 health regeneration, 10 strength points are required. To gain 1% magic resistance, 13 strength points are required.

Strength heroes[edit]

Strength heroes tend to have more health and health regeneration than other heroes, making them more resilient to both physical attacks and spells. Strength heroes have a great variety in their roles, including that of carry, ganker, and support, but almost all of them have some form of strong initiation and are supposed to act as tanks to some degree. In addition, heroes with a large amount of strength may greatly increase the damage needed to bring a team down. With a few exception, most strength heroes are melee. Whilst intelligence heroes typically sport a strong early game, and Agility heroes excel in the late game, Strength heroes are often able to strike a balance between the two and remain relevant at all points of the game.

There are 39 strength heroes in Dota 2.

Below is a table of all heroes with strength as their primary attribute. The growth columns indicate by how much the base values increases for each level of the hero.
