Additional Information[]

Top bar icons showing which hero has the Aegis of the Immortal, visible to spectators only. Has higher priority than the icons of Cheese, but lower than Smoke of Deceit.

  • The Aegis is consumed/disappears when one of the following happens, be it in a player's inventory, or still on the ground where Roshan dropped it:
    • Roshan respawns 8 – 11 minutes after being killed.
    • The Aegis wielder dies and reincarnates, consuming the Aegis.
    • 5 minutes pass since the Aegis was picked up by a hero.
      • This means it is impossible for multiple Aegis to exist in a match.

Notes:

  • Reincarnation cannot be prevented in any way. If a hero dies with it, it is used.
    • If the wielder has another Reincarnation-based ability, the ability triggers first if it is usable.
  • Revives with full health and mana. Other abilities are not refreshed.
  • Provides 1800/800 ground vision at the death location during its delay.
  • When Roshan reclaims the Aegis, the wielding hero is granted health and mana regeneration for a short duration.
    • Can regenerate up to 100% of the hero's max health and mana over its full duration.
    • The hero's max health and mana are checked periodically and the values adapted instantly.
  • Damage greater than 0 from any player (including allies, excluding self) or Roshan icon.png Roshan dispels the effect.
    • Does not get dispelled by damage flagged as HP Removal.
  • When picked up, a countdown appears on the item's icon, visible to everyone, showing the remaining lifetime of the Aegis before disappearing.
    • The countdown always starts at 5 minutes, it does not consider Roshan icon.png Roshan's respawn timer.

Lore[]

According to the characters in the Dota 2 Comic "Are We Heroes Yet" Roshan stole the Aegis of the Immortal from a Shop Keeper whom he killed. The Gods then cursed Roshan to have his life and treasure stolen repeatedly as punishment for his crime.[1]

Trivia[]

  • Aegis was previously an ordinary recipe item that contained three charges. After it was removed, it was then obtainable as a droppable item from Roshan.
  • In Greek mythology, an aegis that was described as "ageless and immortal" was presented to Zeus.
