Recommended Heroes[]

Crystal Maiden icon.png
  • Combined with Arcane Aura, Clarity allows Crystal Maiden to use her abilities much more often than most heroes during the laning phase.
Earthshaker icon.png
  • Clarity is needed to offset Earthshaker's low mana, which is often not enough to cast more than one or two Fissures.
Enigma icon.png
Nature's Prophet icon.png
  • Clarity helps a jungling Nature's Prophet maintain enough mana to summon Treants through Nature's Call.
Omniknight icon.png
  • Clarity is usually required to supplement Omniknight's low mana, at least until he has a Soul Ring icon.png Soul Ring or Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots.
Techies icon.png
  • Clarity is essential for Techies to lay down extra mines during the early game, especially before the horn.
Treant Protector icon.png
  • Clarity will usually regenerate Treant Protector for its full amount, due to his passive invisibility.
  • Clarity allows Treant Protector to constantly shield and heal allies and structures with Living Armor.
Vengeful Spirit icon.png
  • Clarity helps with Vengeful Spirit's low mana pool, as an extra Magic Missile can mean the difference between life and death.
Zeus icon.png
  • Clarity helps Zeus spam Arc Lightning in the mid lane, allowing him to get more last hits.



  • Clarity's effect is dispelled upon taking player damage, so do not use it in the middle of combat.
    • In some situations however, it may be worth it to use it in combat. Even one second of regeneration can be enough to squeeze out one more ability, which can prevent deaths or result in kills.
  • Although it regenerates quite a lot of mana, it takes long to do so. It is best used while doing other out-of-combat things, so you do not stand and wait for it to finish regenerating.
    • This makes them perfect for roaming heroes, who can use a Clarity while moving between the lanes, allowing them to roam for longer and not have to retreat to the fountain to refill their mana.
    • They are also great for jungling heroes who can use them while killing neutral creeps.
  • Due to its low cost, don't hesitate to buy and use a Clarity on an ally in lane, especially if it will give them enough mana to get off another escape or nuke ability.
  • You could also buy it for speeding up regenerating mana in your fountain.
