Additional Information[]

  • On his second death and onwards, Roshan icon Roshan drops the Cheese as a second item if he was slain in the Dire pit. In the Radiant pit, he drops a Roshan's Banner icon Roshan's Banner instead.
  • Although Cheese cannot be bought, it can be sold for 500 Gold. However, only the hero whose main inventory it enters first can sell it.
  • If a Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Courier is the first unit to pick up the Cheese, it cannot be sold by anyone, even if it remains on the Courier or is given to a hero afterwards.
  • If a Cheese directly enters a backpack when picked up, it remains sellable by anyone until it enters any unit's main inventory.
  • Unlike the Aegis of the Immortal icon Aegis of the Immortal, Cheese is not reclaimed by Roshan icon Roshan.
