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.
      • In Turbo Mode, the duration is shortened to 4 minutes.
      • This means it is impossible for multiple Aegis to exist in a match.


Brings you to life with full health and mana 5 seconds after you die, at the location where you died.
