  • The channeling must succeed to get a reward.
  • Since the dug up Kobold is a neutral unit, it attacks both factions, and can drop neutral items as well.
  • Dug up items cannot be sold and are fully shareable.
  • The same Trusty Shovel cannot spawn the same reward twice in a row.


  • Assume Trusty Shovel will be used instantly when it's on cooldown, statistically it will give the team 97.5+8.75x GPM or item of the same price, and 69.6+1.75x GPM for the hero use it (x is every time 5 minutes passed, x=0 when the game starts).
