Strength Strength attribute symbol.png is the attribute that grants health, health regeneration, and magic resistance to every hero. Strength heroes gain 25% more than other heroes, and also gain attack damage.

Bonuses[edit]

Agility and intelligence heroes gain the following bonuses for each point of strength:

Strength heroes gain the following bonuses for each 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 (8 for strength heroes) strength points are required. To gain 1% magic resistance, 13 (10 for strength heroes) 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 37 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.
