The ▶️ Aegis of the Immortal is an item which is dropped by Roshan icon.png Roshan on his first death and onwards.

Additional Information[]

  • The Aegis of the Immortal cannot be dropped or sold.
  • The Aegis 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 slain.
    • The Aegis wielder dies and reincarnates, using up the Aegis.
    • Five minutes pass since the Aegis was picked up by a hero.
      • 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.

Reincarnation must be used within 5 minutes or Aegis of the Immortal disappears. If it expires, it will heal you over 5 seconds (dispels on damage).

    • 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.


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]


  • 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.
