Gnomes are a race of people in the lore of Dota 2.


Little is known about them, but they are probably short like the typical gnomes that are depicted in fiction.


For unknown reasons, gnomes practice having charms: items that confer blessings or protection to the possessor.[1]


The Quelling Blade icon.png Quelling Blade once belonged to a gnome, who has now passed into oblivion. But their axe lives on, which can be used to effectively maneuver through the woods.

  • Its renowned ability to cut down trees garners rejection from nature's guardians, such as Hoodwink minimap icon.png Hoodwink[2] and Windranger minimap icon.png Windranger.[3]
  • Regardless, this mundane tool is valued by a Phantom Advent Spectre minimap icon.png Rogue Spectre, who believes that such a tool is essential for their victory.[4] May be a reference to gameplay, though.

The Ring of Regen icon.png Ring of Regen is considered a good luck charm among them.
