Recommended Heroes[]

Fragile support heroes often purchase a Magic Stick in the early game as a means to save themselves during ganks, or gain enough mana to use one last ability.


  • Magic Sticks allows the user to get a quick burst of healing, or to use one last ability in a fight. Even during the midgame, when the boost is less noticeable, a Magic Stick can still save lives or ensure kills.
  • The Magic Stick makes an excellent item against heroes that spam abilities while in the lane, as the charges can help to mitigate taken damage, or to cast more of own abilities. It is very versatile, and most of the time a good item to have.
