Upgrades the ultimate, and some abilities, of all heroes.

Notes:

  • When a hero has an upgrade available, the item's and the upgraded ability's tooltip states what exactly is upgraded.
  • Single target abilities with Aghanim's Scepter upgrades that are reflected by Spell Reflection depend on whether the reflecting hero has Aghanim's Scepter, not the original caster of the reflected ability.

Others[]

  • Lone Druid minimap icon.png Lone Druid can have Spirit Bear attack without him around or alive, which make an effective and safe pusher who will always threaten the enemy base.
  • Nyx Assassin minimap icon.png Nyx Assassin unlocks Burrow, increasing his regeneration, and helping him use more abilities in team fights and defending buildings.
  • Pangolier minimap icon.png Pangolier's Shield Crash casts a 2-attack Swashbuckle at every 90 degree angle around him, increasing his damage output.
  • Razor minimap icon.png Razor deals more overall damage with Eye of the Storm striking two targets at once; it also damages buildings so Razor can push and close down the game.
  • Timbersaw minimap icon.png Timbersaw acquires Second Chakram to increase his damage output, as well as making him less dependent on trees to deal damage in the late game.

Supports[]

While many supports become more powerful with Aghanim's Scepter, most should still focus primarily on buying support items, with Aghanim's Scepter as a luxury option if they have enough gold.
