  • One player can lure Brewmasters that spawn from two spots behind, and let remaining players focus one Brewmaster at a time.
  • Though this technique is common and this room being relatively easy, the luring players should be aware of following modifiers:
    • Flicker / Surge - Players must spend more time searching for potions and/or use Bottle as Brewmasters can land hits frequently with extra movespeed.
    • Pyromaniac - The fire trail from multiple Brewmasters will take up spaces, making luring significantly more challenging.
    • Meteoric - If any of the brewmasters the player is luring gets damaged with spells, they will fallen sky at random players, more likely than not the one from afar.

2-3 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Trap The Cliffs of Sacrifice
  • Traps with Breath of Rho and Heartpiercer
    • Breath of Rho: Breathes fire at different intervals. The patterns include: 1-1, 1-3, 3-3. Some Breath of Rho does not trigger periodically but have a special step in front of them with recognisable decoration, and will trigger every time a player step on it.
  • Each Heartpiercer associated with a specific switch and will fire a single arrow in front of them every time a player step on the switch. The arrow deals much more damage and can fly very far.
  • Let someone with no lives left to move first to reveal the fog of war, especially when on high ground. That way your team won't waste lives on unexpected traps.
  • Two treasure chests are found along the way.
  • Do not click on them as it will stop your hero on a dangerous tile, instead click behind them to walk as close as possible.
  • Do not rush, team must go one by one as Heartpiercer and Breath of Rho is designed to punish reckless players thinking they can go fast because they are familiar with the room.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Trap The Hallway of Pain
  • Traps with Breath of Rho and Heartpiercer
  • The two traps in the middle of the map are tricky. Move when both of them shoot at the same time right to the last segment with arrows.
  • The last segment with arrows is finished in two moves with no timings. First move to the left of the tree near the chest. As arrows you activated comes through, move to exit of level.

2 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Blind Bombardiers
and their Brethren
  • Gyrocopter
  • Clockwerk
  • Enemies are gradually summoned in a pack with 1 captain via invulnerable portals.
  • Gyrocopter uses Homing Missile that can be destroyed in one attack.
  • Clockwerk explodes on death in an AoE, with a short delay.
  • Kill Clockwerks quickly so they die and explode together in a smaller area.
  • Homing Missiles die in one hit, and can be easily focused by ranged units.
    • Living in a Bubble - Bubble makes it much harder to destroy missile.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Jungle Hijinx
  • Dazzle
  • Huskar
  • All enemies are pre-spawned.
  • Dazzle uses Poison Touch and Shadow Wave with slow cast time and fewer bounces.
  • Huskar uses Inner Fire, Berserker's Blood and Life Break.
  • Spread out against Inner Fire so that multiple heroes aren't disarmed. Bait Poison Touch with one player, who should then run away/avoid getting hit so that Poison Touch doesn't refresh.
  • Lure individual enemies by moving into their range and quickly backing out. Attacking will lure others near it.
  • The last sections has multiple crates and must not be ignored.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Elegant Ice Dancers
  • Big Skeletons
  • Small Skeletons
  • Your team is aided by Gary. If Gary survives he will drop an extra Life Rune.
  • Enemies are gradually summoned in a pack with 1 captain via invulnerable portals.
  • Big Skeletons use a skill similar to Tombstone, which gradually summons small skeletons.
  • Hiding in top right corner to wait out all the spawns will prevent an overwhelming amount of Tombstones from appearing, as big skeletons only spawn if they are in combat. Let Gary die.
  • Captains are the priority and Tombstones are secondary. Captains can spawn multiple Tombstones if they survive for long duration.
  • If Gary survives he will drop an extra Life Rune.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, which will cost some lives if the room is not handled properly:
    • Surge: Players might be overwhelmed by skeletons surging from all directions.
    • Deadly: Skeletons by default deal high damage. Deadly modifiers will allow them to shred players' health in short time.
    • Chilling Touch: Many instances of damage from many skeletons in some occasion may cripple players' movespeed.
    • Glutton: clearing skeletons will debuff players severe reduction in attack speed and turn rate, which are most important for this room.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Silent Killer
  • Drow Ranger (Miniboss)
  • Drow Ranger has Shadow Blade and Hurricane Pike. She can use Frost Arrows, Multishot (moves in a cone) and Gust. She has very high physical damage.
  • Stay mobile during her skillshot phase, have a plan for how to tank, kill Drow Ranger quickly with concentrated damage by dusting and trapping her when she uses Shadow Blade. You may need multiple dusts.
  • In higher Ascensions, especially in Grand Magus with horrible modifiers, players may sacrifice some lives and stay close to Drow Ranger to explode at her upon death, for burst damage on Drow and cleaning up crowding skeletons.

3 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Beastly Babies [Easy]
  • Ogres
  • Large ogres have AoE stun and strong frontal stun. Small ogres will channel to increase attack and movement speed of large ogres.
  • Spread out and focus the small ogres. As long as you are far from your teammates and don't make sharp turns it's almost impossible to get hit by large ogres no matter how many small ones are channeling them.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, though this room is the most manageable in this depth:
    • Last stand: Large ogres at half health will hit fast and may chain stun players to death.
    • Meteoric: There are many large ogres (captains) and one mistake can lead to chain stuns. A tip is to look on the ground to see indicator of incoming fallen sky (meteors)

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat A Strange Morphology [Hard]
  • Morphling
  • Spiders
  • Morphling uses Waveform, and spawns from the large portals. Small groups of spiders spawn from the small portals.
  • Kill the large portals first. Mass Waveforms are the easiest way to die.
  • Morphling will Waveform slightly out of range, be sure to not walk into them as they are casting or you will take severe damage.
  • Avoid this level if you can, as it is the hardest of this group. High attack speed on all players helps as you can kill the tombs quickly.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Hoppy Bats [Easy]
  • Harpies
  • Ghosts
  • Harpies will use a projectile attack that can be dodged, and jump far away, leaving Ghosts behind them.
  • Harpies only spawn ghosts when they hop, and they only hop when you come close. Therefore Winter Wyvern or Sniper can kill them solo before they hop or spawn ghosts. Just evade their projectiles.
  • At higher difficulties it is easy to become overwhelmed, focus one Harpy at a time.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Scarabs of Scuttletown
  • Nyx Assassin
  • Zealot Scarabs
  • Captains use Spiked Carapace and Impale. Smaller Nyx Assassins can use Impale.
  • Spiked Carapace can affect the same hero multiple times.
  • Focus Captains to stop the spawn of small scarabs. Kill burrowed scarabs that captains create before they spawn.
  • Divide this room into 4 squares, stick together and clear one at a time.
  • Be careful not with aggro multiple captains with AOE skills (e.g. Weaver's Swarm, Wyvern's Artic Burn). When Nyx Assassin dies, another one approach players. Wait and observe before approach one of the others.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, especially on elite:
    • Drunk: allows Nyx captain to one/two shot players, and increased movespeed makes kiting significantly more challenging.
    • Explosive personality: this adds more challenge to the limited space nature of this room.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth The Scarabs of Scuttletown
4 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Toothy Toothums[easy]
  • Lifestealer
  • Grimstroke
  • Grimstroke uses Inkswell. Lifestealer uses Rage, with a meter filling over his head (similar to Visage) to indicate cast timing.
  • This is a no death free level on Grandmaster difficulty with correct tactics.
  • Always focus Grimstroke first. Kite Lifestealer afterward.
  • Lifestealer can be dangerous, despite being such an early level. Cold Embrace, Heavenly Grace and other saves are key, and killing them one at a time is very helpful.
  • Stop attacking/damaging Lifestealer to stop his meter from filling. Don't use damage over time, or you can't control, like Nethertoxin.
  • Don't use items that deal big damage like Quiver if it cause high risk of filling Lifestealer's meter.
  • Best place to kite is a long corridor in the start of level. Just get into two ends of corridor and kite them along. Don't move through traps to enemies. Aggro them with Winter Wyvern or Sniper's Shrapnel.
  • Stunning and Silencing Lifestealers as the meter filled completely prevents them from triggering Rage, giving players space to disengage and/or land extra hits.
  • Beware of the following modifiers:
    • Last stand: Lifestealers will be hit extremely fast when coupled with Rage
    • Drunk: Lifestealers will crit for relatively high damage
    • Chilling touch: this is not a significant case. However, Grimstroke's Ink swell comes with many instances of damage which can cripple players' movement speed and allow them to take the stun along with few hits from Lifestealer

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Last of the Corpulent Killers
  • Ogre Seals
  • Large seals will dive forward in a straight line after a brief delay and do substantial damage.
  • Best way to finish the level is to kill groups quickly before more spawn. If you can't, gather them all in one big group and kite them in a big clockwise circle around the map.
  • Most teams will be severely overwhelmed on higher difficulties, be sure to use the explosive barrels and space out ultimates to eliminate small groups so they do not combine with many other groups.
  • Use the room space to kite and run while using the window, after Gary dives, to use abilities.
  • Dangerous modifiers: Surge, Flicker (Seal still dives after Flickering)
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth The Last of the Corpulent Killers
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Demonic Dozens [Easy]
  • Warlock
  • Golems
  • Warlocks use Sunstrike, healing Shadow Word, and make a small pit of fire on the ground. Portals will spawn units until destroyed.
  • Move as a group in a circle, one portal at a time. Kill the Warlocks first, as they buff the golems. While Warlock is alive, his golems have twice the damage and 8 times the hit points (on Apprentice).
  • Warlocks buff golems through aura. This means separating warlocks from golems, or breaking their passives, can disable the buff (making Viper and Disruptor valuable heroes in this room)
  • If players cannot hit a set of portal before a new set of portal spawn, shift to the newly spawned portals, as the old one will take longer to summon enemies.

5 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Boss The Malorkian Hammers
  • 2 Temple Guardians (Boss)
  • Guardians have the following attacks:
    • Forward-facing hammer attack that stuns
    • Boomerang hammer attack that stuns, Always targeting the furthest hero from the individual Guardian
    • At lower health, Purification onto the other Guardian
    • While alone, uses the "ultimate" random Large AoE attack that calls down rays of light across the map after a two second delay
    • Will enrage at 2000 health remaining, moving and attacking faster.
  • Get one Guardian very low, bring the other down to 30-40%, then kill the lower Guardian.
  • The "ultimate" is avoidable but due to randomness there are cases where dodging is impossible. Guardians can throw their hammer just before the ultimate finishes.
  • It's better for one player to keep aggro one Guardian and kite while others attack him. Beware of the boomerang hammer even if boss is focused on different teammate.
  • Keep a greater distance, or run away further to hit enraged guardians.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Boss Rizzrick the Razorsaw
  • Rizzrick
  • Little Ent
  • Rizzrick has Whirling Death, Timber Chain, Chakram abilities. Any trees cut with any ability will summon Treants.
  • Rizzrick will channel before Whirling Death.
  • Heroes caught in Timber Chain will be stunned.
  • Rizzrick stops being pulled if he is disabled at any point during Timber Chain.
  • Rizzrick's "ultimate" will channel then release multiple Chakrams in all directions, quickly going out and back in.
  • After Rizzrick's "ultimate" is cast first time, he will gain cc immunity. This means stuns and silences do not last, but Rizzrick can still be interrupted.
  • Rizzrick will spawn Little Ents, which should be cleared with AoE abilities.
  • Try to position yourself so the attacks aimed at you won't hit any trees. Try to fight in places with minimal amount of trees.
  • Run away as Rizzrick starts shining and charging his ultimate.
  • Rizzrick's ultimate can be interrupted by stuns, but it will inevitably be cast after the silence/stuns are over.
  • Ranged heroes can stand behind a tree so Timber Chain cooldown won't stun them.
  • Have one player with AoE abilities to clear Little Ents after Rizzrick's ultimate. Some will drop health or mana potions, which is helpful for team mates.
  • After both Chakrams are thrown, players have a window to deal damage, while Rizzick just walks around as he is disarmed from casting Chakrams.
  • Viper's Poison Snap shard makes the fight trivial. The mini-stun each second stops him from ever completing the channel for his ult; he just stands there while you finish him.
  • Winter wyvern can opt to use Winter's curse after Rizzrick spawned many treants for maximum efficiency, rather than using the curse to interrupt Rizzrick as he will cast hit ultimate anyway.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Arrows Of The Moon
  • Mirana
  • Luna
  • Mirana spawns from large portals, Luna from small ones. Mirana casts Arrow upon spawning, then uses Leap and Starfall. Luna uses Moon Glaives.
  • Mirana is the only real threat. Focus the large portals.
  • Enter this level as a group, blast away the early Lunas and position yourself near the center ASAP to have the best chance at moving and destroying the incoming large portals.
  • Luna's Moon will kill squishy heroes quickly, its important to not hold back abilities early on.
  • Argurable most difficult encounter among others in this depth.
  • Dangerous modifiers (given the room is not dealt with properly, it may cause defeat):
    • Deadly: Luna glaives will murder if players only ignore them and focus towers.
    • Last stand: this creates a tough decision for players to completely focus enemy or towers. Going half way will cause enemies to murder players quickly with boost in attack speeed.
    • Glutton: just like other rooms with portals, reduced attack speed will cripple player's ability to burst down portals. Though this room has less number of enemies.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat A Mind-Tingling Offer [Easy]
  • Shadow Shaman
  • Mushroom Giant
  • Shadow Shaman uses Shackle, with notable damage over time. Can be interrupted. He respawns indefinitely.
  • Mushroom Giants spawn small mushrooms upon death. High armor.
  • All the mushrooms (including those spawn by Mushroom Giants) are asleep and only wake up if attacked.
  • Kill mushrooms one by one with single target attacks and abilities. Save disables to interrupt Shadow Shaman's Shackles.
  • As you kill all mushrooms nearby, aggro one tree and kill it, without using AoE abilities so as not to trigger mushroom spawns when it dies.
  • It's a free no death level on Grand Magus difficulty, if you go slow and steady and deal with Shadow Shaman properly.
  • Dangerous modifiers:
    • Avatar - Greatly limits players' options to interrupt shaman's shackle
    • Glimmer - Players cannot use targeted disable on Shaman when it is invisible. True sight is required.
    • Vampiric - Challenges players' decision to burst down Shaman without interrupting it. Vampiric gives Shaman very high lifesteal while shackling a target.
  • These are lists of talents that help with canceling Shaman's shackle
    • Sniper - Stoppin' Power: Allows sniper to stun a target with headshot procs every 2 second, which is very valuable in the room.
    • Winter Wyvern - Cool and Collected: Splinter Blast can interrupt Shaman with forced movement. This requires another enemy unit nearby for Wyvern to cast on.
    • Winter Wyvern - Diamondize: Magic immunity allows Wyvern to dispel shackle for an ally.
    • Snapfire - Raisin Firesnaps: Though the player can cast Firesnap Cookie to enemies, it has no effect on Shaman who is channeling. Instead, use it at an enemy next to Shaman, or use it on an ally to stun Shaman.
    • Ursa - Cannonball: Allows Ursa to stun with Earthshock.
    • Mars - Stunning Rebuke: Allows Mars to stun with God's Rebuke
    • Weaver - Back to Basics: Similar to scepter upgraded Time Lapse, can dispel allies.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat A Bad Trading Post
  • Beastmaster
  • Troll Warlords
  • The sheep are in boxes, and can be rescued (escorted to middle) at your convenience. Some boxes have boars. Trolls only spawn when all sheep are rescued, make sure to clear all Beastmasters before it.
  • Beastmaster uses Primal Roar and Wild Axes. Send a hero to bait and dodge axes from Beastmaster. They will then get stunned -- be prepared to save them.
  • One troll (left side) is ranged, the other (right side) is melee. They use their respective version of Whirling Axes, and Black King Bar/Battle Trance. Focus the ranged one first, while a player kite the melee.
  • Save all stuns/defensive abilities to kite during their Battle Trance/Black King Bar durations.
  • Dangerous modifiers:
    • Surge: all captains deal high damage. The room greatly exploits ability to lure enemies. Surge will give players tough time, especially when Trolls spawn. It may cause players to accidently activate Trolls' Battle Trance and BKB when they come too close.
    • Flicker: Beastmaster teleports randomly and makes Wild axes harder to avoid. Trolls may also close the gap and activate their BKB/Entangle/Battle Trance.

  • Aggro either Dark Seer or Lich, not both at the same time. To deal with Dark Seer, kill him first before the spawned illusions. To deal with Lich, bait the Chain Frost with one player, then focus Lich.
  • Slowly move around the room from the right side, luring individual enemies by moving into their aggro radius instead of attacking.
  • Avoid using 'Paw of Lucius" neutral item, as illusion from Wall of Replica can inflict rupture to players.

  • Pudge (Miniboss)
  • Zombies
  • Pudge uses Dismember until the hero dies. Save disables to cancel it.
  • Don't stay in the middle, where you'll be overwhelmed by zombies.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, though this room is best avoided:
    • Deadly: damage boost allows pudge to kill players with a few or even one attack.
    • Chilling touch: attacks from flooding zombies will cripple movement speed and armor.
    • Death Curse: players will eventually have to clear zombies, which will bring their armors all the way down to negative amount. Zombies also neutrally reduces armor with each of their attacks.
    • Avatar: dealing with Pudge is significantly more difficult with magic immunity.
    • Surge: Pudge naturally moves at very high speed. With surge, it is hopeless to out run Pudge and zombies.
    • Drunk: Players can hardly afford Monkey King Bar at this point. It will take much longer to bring the Pudge down. Critical Strike also allows Pudge to murder heroes with only one or two hit.
    • Glutton: Players will have crippled turn rate and attack speed from clearing zombies, which makes bursting Pudge or running from Pudge almost impossible.

9 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat My Rock Collection

  • Large golems split into smaller golems upon death, and uses Avalanche in a frontal cone. Small golems hit fairly hard with high attack and move speed -- save AoE abilities for cleaning them quickly. After clearing out small golems, start killing another large golem.
  • Stick together and run in a circle so that large golems' Avalanche all come from same direction.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, though this room is much manageable even on elite.
    • Pyromaniac: Medium golems still create fire trails. Multiple medium golems will take up majority of space with fire trails, making the kiting pattern much more complicated.
    • Surge: Players can still out run large and medium golems. However, small golems will slightly out run players and can land few hits.
    • Last Stand: the most challenging modifier for this room. Small golems with last stand buffs have 0.13 attack rate and will murder players in a second.
    • Clumsy: Beware landing finish blow on captains, as small golems spawn nearby rooted killer.

  • Spectres can be easily kited. Just be smart in ability usage, AoE and damage over time are the easiest ways to wipe this stage.
  • Viper's Nethertoxin can disable their abilities, allowing the team to kill them easily.
  • The team can form a huge kiting circle and spam skills as they run from many Spectres.
  • Beware of the following modifiers;

  • Kill Kunkkas and smaller Tidehunters first while kiting the larger one, to minimize Ravages. Stop hitting him to prevent his meter from building.
  • Kunkka will not use Ghost Ship if you stay at a close distance.
  • Beware of the following modifiers:
    • Flicker: Tidehunters can flicker and land Anchor Smash inevitably.
    • Surge: The exploit of this room is generally to out run enemies. Surge will create extra challenge for this room.
    • Meteoric: There are many captains in this room, and map layout can make it difficult to spot incoming meteors.

  • Grunch should be kept alive if possible, as he is a decent tank.
  • Dragon Knights use Dragon Tail, Dragon Breath (applies break) and Dragon Form.
  • Underlord uses Firestorm and buffs Dragon Knight.
  • Focus the Underlords and use buffs on Grunch if available.
  • An exploit of this room is to stay at bottom right wall, behind the activation button. Letting Grunch die. Once Grunch dies, spawning enemies will not aggro and stay at their places. Players can manage to deal with each group properly with cast range and DoT spells. Explosive personality can make this significantly harder, and Meteoric completely disables this exploit.

    • At lower health, his uses a massive Avalanche, which moves slowly and has a very long range, spawning small Tinys in the process
    • He also has a repeated AoE slow around himself in a short radius, dealing high damage.
  • Avalanche can be avoided behind the large rocks he throws out, or the walls in the room. Staying further back will give you more time to react to the large Avalanche.

  • Melee characters that lack AoE or mobility may be best served to just collect gold, as it despawns.
  • Before fighting the second boss. Always carry Paw of Lucius in backpack if available. If this is the bonus round, Paw of Lucius is a valuable item for dealing many instances of damage to chickens. If there is Winter Wyvern or Weaver with split shot talent in your composition, let that player use the item.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Bonus Rolling in Riches
  • Pangolier
  • Hit the Greevils while rolling similar to Pangolier. Avoid the stationary enemies with circles around them, or you will be banished temporarily.
  • Spread out, but normally best to keep a player or two in the middle.

14-16 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Trap Corridors of Chaos
  • Traps
  • In order for your team to complete this round, at least one of you needs to finish it, even if all others are dead. So if you have 0 lives left and at least one of your teammates has already finished the Corridor, you have nothing to lose if you go ahead and die fast. But if you have lives and don't want to waste them, then take your time to observe well what's ahead and make your next steps carefully. It's better if there is space between you and your teammates.
  • There are parts that the guillotine are deceptive and can hit/not hit players. Try not to panic while proceeding.

Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Trap Splitting Hairs
  • Traps
  • The only difficult part of this trap is the first guillotine. Try to keep distance and go one by one, as there is hardly enough room for two players to evade the next part which is button-arrow.

14 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Angry Stuff With Wings
  • Wildwings
  • Wildwing captains will cast Tornado with relatively low cooldown.
  • Two or Four little harpies spawn at each cast of Tornado.
  • Try to focus one Wildwing at a time. It is easy to be overwhelmed by Tornadoes and little harpies. Stay in the bottom right corner and wait for individual Wildwings to come by.
  • Beware of the following modifiers:
    • Last stand: Wildwing captain and little harpies hit for high damage. With attack speed boost, it is very dangerous.
    • Explosive Personality: in some occasion, players may simultaneously get stuck by Tornado and cannot avoid explosion from nearby teammate.
    • Deadly: Similar to Last Stand, but much more risky when overwhelmed by many harpies.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth Angry Stuff With Wings
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Tiny and Io -
Elemental Adventure
  • Tiny
  • Io
  • Tiny uses Toss. Io uses Tether. Tiny can toss from very far away, they will often wait in the corners. Pings on the minimap will show incoming Io's.
  • Focus on the first Tiny, then try to center your team around one Tiny at a time. You can do this by moving together from corner to corner -- avoid aggro all Tiny at once.
  • Io's attack heroes in range as they land with Toss, with moderately high damage. It is safer to kill Io's first after the first Tiny falls.
  • Beware of the following modifiers:
    • Last stand: io still attack while stunned or moving. If players cannot burst disengaging io, the best hope is to keep great distance from them, though more io will come from toss anyway.
    • Deadly: tosses will now deal very high damage, along with io attacks.
    • Drunk: Tiny may kill heroes with a few hits with critical strike.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth Tiny and Io - Elemental Adventure
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Al, the Chemist
  • Alchemist (Miniboss)
  • Alchemist has Chemical Rage, Unstable Concoction (does not self stun), and Acid Spray (400 DPS at level 2). A second Alchemist spawns when the first is at low (<50%?) health.
  • Alchemists are immune to stun and other cc's.
  • Disruptor's Glimpse and Kinetic Field are useful for saving heroes.
  • Level is dangerous on Elite.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth Al, the Chemist
15 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Badland Bandits
  • Sabaku Thief
  • Sabaku Bandit
  • Sabaku Captain
  • Drow Ranger will use Sacred Arrow. Large bandits will use Stifling Dagger.
  • Destroy big spawn totems to prevent large bandits from overwhelming the map.
  • Avoid this room if your team composition lacks strong damage. More than one ranged heroes is recommended for this room.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth Badland Bandits
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The Bomb Squad
  • Techies (Miniboss)
  • Pudge
  • Pudge uses Hook. Techies uses Proximity Mines in a large line, and Stasis Trap.
  • Pudge doesn't use Hook if there's an ally in melee range. Therefore, immediately find the portal and get on top of Pudges. Techies can be largely ignored until all Pudges are killed.
  • Hook has a moderately long cooldown. With friendly modifiers, players can fight Pudges head-on after hook.
  • Ranged heroes should hit one of the land mines to explode the others in the line.
  • Level is dangerous on elite, but probably the easiest of this set.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth The Bomb Squad
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat The King Returns
  • Wraith King (Miniboss)
  • Wraith King has Wraithfire Blast, Mortal Strike and Reincarnation (only triggers once in a round). Black King Bar and Eul's Scepter of Divinity are good for dodging Wraithfire Blast.
  • Walk around the room clearing a few Wraith King first before going into the middle to avoid aggroing multiple Wraith Kings.
  • This room requires strong damage and AOE, such as Winter Wyvern's Artic Splash, Sniper's Explosive Shrapnel, or Mjollnir.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth The King Returns
16 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat No Time To Brood
  • Broodmother
  • Five sizes of spider
  • Large and very large spiders have a Venomous Gale-type spell that, upon connection, spawns spiders. The medium sized spiders (much faster than the rest) that run straight towards you have Batrider's Lasso, which needs to be stunned, dispelled, or otherwise killed ASAP. The spider eggs on the ground can also spawn spiderlings.
  • There are two options to play this room. One is to avoid stepping on white spots, because it poisons the unit and spawn a group of little spiders. After all captains are killed, all remaining white spots pop and players can be overwhelmed by little spiders. Second and safer option is to approach white spots one at at time before killing all spider captains. This way, players can react to medium spiders better to prevent lasso. This also prevents being overwhelmed by little spiders after all spider captains are defeated.
  • Level can be dangerous, especially without reliable ways to disable the medium spiders or protect Lasso'd units.
  • Mirror Shield neutral item is very valuable in this room. A player should equip and engage medium spiders to reflect lasso.
  • Beware of the following modifiers, which in worst case will make the room impossible.
    • Avatar: Medium spiders are much more difficult to interrupt.
    • Pyromaniac: Medium spiders will guarantee a kill on players with uninterrupted lasso and fire trail
    • Glimmer: Medium spiders vanish and lasso on players while being unseen. True sight is required in this case.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth No Time To Brood
    • Meteoric: The batrider spiders will just meteor onto your group and drag one of you away.
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Battle Squawks
  • Ember Spirit
  • Phoenix
  • Phoenix uses Flame Spirits. When its health is low, it will use Supernova and pick up the closest hero to it. Egg needs to be killed ASAP.
  • Focus on Ember Spirits before attacking Phoenix.
  • Heroes with low attack speed should be close to Phoenix and let heroes with high attack speed hit the egg.
  • Use the space to evade Fire Spirits and Icarus Dive.
  • Being the most difficult room in this mode, players should avoid it if they are not sure on coordination.
Minimap Aghanim's Labyrinth Battle Squawks
Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Combat Blazhan and Frozhan
  • Firey Roshan (Miniboss)
  • Icy Roshan (Miniboss)
  • Firey Roshan, after a long windup (throws head back), has very large flame breath line that moves back and forth.
  • Firey Roshan is large and takes a while to kill, keep the small mobs under control in the meanwhile.
  • Firey Roshan's physical attack is the most powerful in the game, it will kill most heroes in one hit on higher difficulties.
  • Firey Roshan's Flame cannot be avoided with Black King Bar. It is best to move aside.
  • Icy Roshan moves and hits faster. It is best to kill Icy Roshan quickly.
  • This boss is by far the easiest of this group. Avoid the stomp by the small Icy Roshan while avoiding the slow fire by Firey Roshan. Thank your lucky stars you got this choice.
  • Following modifiers significantly boost difficulty of this room:
    • Surge: Roshan bosses hit for high damage, which players cannot afford getting hit more than 2 times. Surge allows Roshans to close the gap and minimize the opportunity for players to hit.
    • Flicker: It creates a random case where Roshans can randomly "Blink Slap" players. Also causes confusion of Fire Breath direction when Fiery Roshan blinks.

18 Aghanim's Labyrinth Room Boss The Apex Mage
  • Aghanim

Model Aghanim

  • Aghanim has the following abilities:
    • An AoE stun around himself
    • Summon shards that hit a targeted AoE. (do not damage while traveling).
      • At higher difficulties, he has Frost Armor during the shard attack.
    • A laser that chases units and leaves fire on the ground.
      • High move speed is required to avoid it (~375-450 depending on difficulty).
      • Force Staff or mobility abilities are also useful in avoiding the laser.
      • Move back towards Aghanim for the best chance of avoiding the laser.
    • Summon spears that lock onto targets before launching (will pin and knockback like Spear of Mars).
      • Spears spawn at staggered periods of time, and the further away you are, the more time you have to dodge.
    • Blink, and a series of shards that hit a small AoE with temporary knockback.
    • At low health, Aghanim channels and create crystals targeting each living player, randomly locking one of their abilities until the crystals are destroyed.
      • Aghanim also creates medium Tinys with no abilities.
      • The crystals circle around Aghanim and have no other effects.
      • If a player dies and revives, all their abilities are unlocked.
      • Eul's Scepter of Divinity can be used before Aghanim finishes channeling to avoid your ability being stolen. It also gives Movement speed and is useful on all heroes.
    • At very low health, Aghanim creates a large circle of crystals that move in waves, exploding if a player hits them.
  • As high movement speed means a lot in this fight, Boots of Travel 2 is often more important than buying one more damage item. Force Boots are also good.
  • The shard attack and the ability stealing channel provide good opportunities to damage Aganhim as the shards are relatively easy to dodge and the ability steal does not deal damage.

Voice announcer[]


Across dimensions, strength succumbs to knowledge.
Yet knowledge wilts in the shadow of the unknown.
And the unknown only yields to strength.”

-- Grunch; as spoken to his captor


"I am Aghanim. Yes, THAT Aghanim."

"Aghanim the mighty. Aghanim who studied dark, forbidden magic and became lost across the astral dimensions in an effort to create a grand scepter. I'm sure you heard lies of my works in hero school. But here is something your stupid teachers DIDN'T tell you: Aghanim then sought out the deadliest creatures from the darkest dimensions and brought them here to test the mettle of the mightiest among you. Sharpen your blades! Utter your incantations! Stretch! Perform your vocal warm ups!"

"What horrors lie in wait for your party? Allow Aghanim the mighty to tell you -- several horrors!"

"Aghanim the Generous offers you a panoply of ways to die."

"Such strong and mighty warriors! Imagine what you could accomplish with tools such as 'skill' and 'talent'!"

"Dear friends, Aghanim the humble does not toot his own horn! But if he did it would sound like the wails of your party meeting its demise!"

"Are you pumped? Great. Are you focused? Perfect. Did you pick out a headstone that reads 'Died of hubris, leaving behind only a cat and a pile of blood-soaked clothes?' I hope so."

"Surviving Aghanim the Mighty's labyrinth earns you my respect. But what's BETTER than Aghanim the Mighty's respect? The knowledge that you've outperformed everyone else in the world. And what's BETTER than knowing you've outperformed everyone else in the world? Prizes!"

"What darkness motivates your party to submit to almost certain death? It must be the most potent of all desires: the insatiable need for fancy stuff!"

"Champion, take in to your charge this rarest of babies. It is no matter how I got them. Look, they're not stolen."

"You've NEVER seen shoes like these before. Hand cobbled from a stock of long-forgotten quillboar leather, soaked in the sea-water from an alternate dimension, chic but practical for every-day wear, offered in men's and women's whole and half sizes. The price? Your blood."

"Allow Aghanim's keen eye to offer you a near-priceless restyling!"

"May all that gaze upon you know that you did not immediately turn to dust upon setting foot in my labyrinth. No, you waited dozens of minutes to do that."

"It's a time trial! We're putting time on trial! Time! Take the stand!"


"Any layman with a feeble grip can carve wood or hammer steel. Even the tender hands of a child can grasp a set of instructions. But to create something takes rare hands. Shrewder hands. Handsome, brilliant hands. The hands that forged the first scepter of power. My hands have slipped through dimensions, touching things that warped the mind to test the mettle of the strongest willed."

"From the far reaches of the astral plane, beyond countless dimensions, MONSTERS! BEASTS! Beasts without legs! Beasts that are only legs! Heroes that aren't heroes at all! I have brought them here to answer one simple question: Can your hands wield the true Aghanim's Scepter?"





  • Aghanim's (the announcer) voice actor is Rich Sommer.
  • This event uses many assets from the Siltbreaker event.
  • The name "Tiny and Io - Elemental Adventure" is a reference to a TI6 short film entry which involved Io stealing last hits from Tiny which results in a ping war. As a nod, players will always hear a ping whenever an Io is tossed their way.
  • The needle of light that shines out of a completed room totem acts as a compass pointing the players to the next correct doorway.
