Dota 2 Wiki

Items are in-game equipment that provide heroes with bonus attributes and special abilities. Most items can be purchased from several shops on the game map, while others are dropped by creeps. Lower tier items are combined into higher tier items, usually with the help of a recipe. Heroes have six item slots in their inventory, three in their backpack, and six more in their stash. Items can be picked up and delivered to their owner with a courier.

The Underhollow

The International


There are two different shops per faction. The Base Shop and the Secret Shop. In the shop areas, items can be swapped from the backpack without time penalty.

Base Shop

Main Article: Base Shop

The Base Shops are located within the Fountain are behind the Ancients. All basic items except the secret ones can be bought there. Additionally a majority of the upgrades can be completed there.

Secret Shop

Main Article: Secret Shop

The Secret Shops are slightly hidden shops located near the center of the map. The shops allow players to buy items that cannot be bought elsewhere or to spend extra gold while in the early game.

Removed Shops

Side Lane Shop

Main Article: Side Lane Shop

Two Side Lane Shops were shops that could be found at the edges of the map. They allowed players to buy certain useful items without returning to base or to the secret shops. All side shops have been removed from the game in 7.23 update.

Other information

  • Heroes cannot use items owned by other heroes, with a handful of exceptions. See Item Sharing for details.
  • Some items can be disassembled. See Disassembly for details.
  • Most items may be sold back to vendors for all of the gold spent, if sold within 10 seconds after purchasing, and the item's active ability (if it has one) has not been used yet.
    • After 10 seconds have passed, or the item's active ability has been used, selling an item only recoups 50% of its original price.
    • Gem of True Sight icon.png Gem of True Sight and Divine Rapier icon.png Divine Rapier cannot be sold at any time.
    • The starting Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll and any other items gained from selecting a bonus hero or randoming cannot be sold.
  • Most dropped items can be destroyed by force-attacking them (default key: A).
  • The range for dropping an item on the ground is 100.
  • The range for picking up an item from the ground is 150.
  • The range for transfering an item to another unit is 300.
  • Most item effects cannot be effectively stacked with multiple copies of the same item on a single hero, with the copy only being able to provide the base stats of the item.
    • Cooldowns are shared between identical items with active abilities, and if one item with an active ability can be upgraded into another, most of the time both will share a cooldown.
    • Multiple instances of the same aura or debuff will not stack, even if the two copies of the item providing it are owned by separate heroes.
  • Some items do not provide their effect to heroes with passive abilities providing the same or similar effect. For example, most heroes with a bash ability cannot use the passive ability from Skull Basher icon.png Skull Basher.
  • Some items have effects that only apply to heroes that are ranged or melee.
  • When combining one item from multiple items, the resulting item will attempt to be placed in the inventory slot of the component that has the most similar active effect.
  • The shop at the enemy fountain can also be used to buy items, sell items, and access the stash.
    • The Secret Shops have a restricted inventory, and cannot be used to access the hero's stash.
