    • Bonus damage from other sources is not further increased.

  • The flat mana regen bonus is not considered by percentage mana regeneration increases.
  • Regenerates up to 180 health and 48 mana in one minute.
  • The aura's buff lingers for 0.5 seconds.

Recommended heroes[edit]

  • Jungling heroes often need the lifesteal from Vladmir's Offering to farm well in the early game.


  • Meepo minimap icon.png Meepo's clones all benefits from Vladmir's Offering's aura.


  • Vladmir's Offering is normally picked up in the early-mid game as it cannot be upgraded into a better item. Its wide variety of bonuses and useful components makes it an attractive choice for melee heroes.
  • It can be useful for a carry with a unique attack modifier. However, in the lategame a support should pick it up for the damage and armor auras.
  • Vladmir's Offering assists with pushing due to conferring armor and lifesteal to nearby creeps, making them withstand hits from enemy creeps, heroes and towers for longer.
  • Since Vladmir's Aura can't be toggled off, its status buff icon is always visible on creeps. Therefore it is possible to detect invisible enemy heroes holding Vladmir's Offering by checking enemy creeps' status buff icons.
  • When having 44 or more intelligence, Sage's Mask icon.png Sage's Mask provides more mana regeneration (0.885) than a Vladmir's Offering.
