Health Regeneration determines the amount of health a unit regains each second. It is shown as a small number with a + sign at the right side of the unit's health bar.

Heroes also gain bonus health regeneration based on their Strength attribute symbol strength. Each point of strength increases the hero's health regeneration by 0.1HP.

Health regeneration heals the unit in 0.1-second intervals. This rate cannot be changed by anything. Health regeneration has no cap.

Health regeneration is affected by health regeneration manipulation. When increased or reduced, the HUD shows the increased/reduced values.

Modifying Health Regeneration[]

Just like for mana regeneration, there are many abilities and items which can change how fast a unit regenerates health. Most of them increase health regeneration rate by adding a flat bonus, but some also increase it based on certain things, like health or attributes. They can be passive bonuses which grant a permanent bonus or be conditionally activated, or be short, but grant a strong bonus.


The following abilities affect a unit's health by granting health regeneration bonus, they are not considered as healing.

1 Requires Talent talent.
2a Requires Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter.
2b Requires Aghanim's Shard icon Aghanim's Shard.
