This article is about the in-game map. For locations in Dota 2 lore, see Category:World.

The Map is the playing field for all Dota 2 matches. It is comprised of two sides, one for the Radiant icon Radiant faction, and one for the Dire icon Dire faction. To win, players must destroy the opposing side's Ancient, an important building at the center of each team's base. The map is represented in the interface by the minimap.

Factions[]

Each faction occupies a diagonal half of the map, separated in the middle by the river. The Radiant icon Radiant is based at the lower left corner of the map, while the Dire icon Dire is based at the upper right corner. The Ancients are located inside strongholds at the heart of each faction's territory.

Lanes[]

Main Article: Lane

The map is segmented into three different lanes, the top, the bottom, and the middle lane. Each one of these lanes leads to the other team's base, guarded by towers along the way. During the early laning phase of the game, most gameplay is centered around the lanes.

The bottom lane for the Radiant icon Radiant, and the top lane for the Dire icon Dire, are considered safe lanes. Creeps meet each other close to the towers, which provide greater protection from enemies. These lanes are recommended for beginners, as they provide some added protection against ganking.

River[]

The River separates the two factional sides of the map. It is surrounded by high ground, which blocks players' vision on both sides. The river interacts with 2 spells in the game: Ocean Heart icon Water Regen (heals 10 HP per second and restores 5 mana per second while in the river) and Guardian Sprint icon Guardian Sprint (amplifies movement speed bonus while in the river and, if Aghanim's Scepter icon upgraded, provides a status resistance bonus).

Spots of the river can be created manually by Slardar minimap icon Slardar with Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter. In this case, when Slithereen Crush icon Slithereen Crush is cast, a puddle of water is created around Slardar minimap icon Slardar, which is considered river.

Runes[]

Main Article: Rune

There are three types of Runes that spawn at different locations on the map: Bounty Runes, Wisdom Runes and Power-up Runes. Bounty Runes spawn in 3 minute intervals. Power-up Runes spawn in 2 minute intervals. And Wisdom Runes spawn in 7 minute intervals. As their names imply, Bounty Runes grant players a bounty and Wisdom Runes XP. And Power-up grant players bonuses.

From the start of the game onward, Bounty Runes will spawn at four different locations on the map, two of which on the River, and the other two on the Radiant and Dire side each.

  • Bounty Rune minimap icon Bounty Rune: Grants 40 gold to the entire team, which scales up by 36 gold per 5 minutes.

From the 7 minute mark onward, Wisdom Runes will spawn at their dedicated Wisdom Rune spots at the left and right edges of the map.

At 2 minute mark and 4 minute mark, only one type of Power-up Rune will spawn randomly at both two points in the river:

  • Water Rune minimap icon Water Rune: Grants 40 health and 80 mana restore.

From the 6 minute mark onward, other Power-up Rune will spawn randomly at one of two points in the river.

  • Arcane Rune minimap icon Arcane Rune: Grants 25% cooldown reduction and 30% mana loss reduction for 50 seconds.
  • Double Damage Rune minimap icon Double Damage Rune: Grants Lua error in Module:Show at line 70: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value). attack damage bonus for Lua error in Module:Show at line 70: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value). seconds.
  • Haste Rune minimap icon Haste Rune: Hastens movement speed to 550 for 22 seconds.
  • Illusion Rune minimap icon Illusion Rune: Creates 2 illusions of the hero which last for seconds, which deal damage and take damage when melee, and when ranged.
  • Invisibility Rune minimap icon Invisibility Rune: Grants invisibility for 45 seconds, with a fade delay of 2 seconds.
  • Regeneration Rune minimap icon Regeneration Rune: Grants 6% health regen and 6% mana regen, based on the maximum health/mana pools, for 1% seconds. Effect stops upon taking player-based damage.
  • Shield Rune minimap icon Shield Rune: Grants an All Damage Barrier for 75 seconds equal to 50% of your max HP.

Roshan[]

Jungle[]

The Jungle refers to the forested areas between lanes. This is where most neutral creeps can be found, which can be killed for gold and experience. It is possible to level up by killing creeps in the jungle instead of in the lanes. This practice is called Jungling.

Map Edges[]

The map edges are named areas beyond the side lanes that contain neutral creep camps, as well as neutral buildings.

The Well[]

The south edge of the map, below the Radiant's bottom lane. This area includes 2 large and 1 medium neutral creep camp. Within this area, all units gain the Well Wishes buff. A well is located at the center of this location.

Buildings[]

Buildings are a type of unit that are not controlled by any player. At the beginning of a match, a set of buildings spawn at set locations in both teams' bases. Both factions have the same set of buildings, with only their appearance differing from each other. Buildings take mostly defensive roles and are the main objective of the game.

Besides the bases, there are several neutral buildings scattered throughout the map that can be conquered, or be otherwised used by both teams.

Faction Buildings[]

All faction buildings have the same base properties. They are immune to most abilities and can be only affected by a few abilities.

When destroyed, some buildings grant a team Gold Gold bounty, and some grant bounty to the player who made the last hit. A building with less than 10% of its max health can be denied, to reduce or prevent the enemy team from obtaining gold bounties. However, only the Ancients cannot be denied.

Buildings do not grant experience. Once destroyed, a building is permanently lost and does not respawn.

There are a total of 26 buildings for each faction.

Main Article: Buildings

Towers[]

Towers are the main line of defense for both factions, attacking any non-neutral enemy unit that gets within their range. Both factions have all three lanes guarded by three towers each.

Additionally, each faction's Ancient has two towers as well, resulting in a total of 11 towers per faction. Towers come in 4 different tiers:

Barracks[]

Barracks (commonly shortened to Rax or Racks) are buildings, defended by and located behind Tower Radiant icon Towers (Tier 3) in each respective lanes. Barracks do not have to be destroyed to make Tower Radiant icon Towers (Tier 4) vulnerable.

There are two types of Barracks on each lane per faction, with a total of 6 Barracks per faction, 3 each of type — the Melee Melee Barracks for Melee Creep Radiant icon Melee Creeps and Melee Creep Radiant icon Flagbearer Creeps and the Ranged Barracks for Ranged Ranged Creep Radiant icon Ranged Creeps and Siege Creep Radiant icon Siege Creeps. The Ranged Barracks are always located to the left of the Melee Barracks on each lane for both factions.

Ancients[]

Ancients (also commonly referred to as Thrones, or Tree for Radiant icon Radiant's ancient and Throne for Dire icon Dire's ancient, as legacy names from DotA) are massive structures found inside each faction's base and are the game's main objective. In order to win, the enemy team's Ancient must be destroyed, while the team's own Ancient must be kept alive.

Ancients are guarded by two Tower Radiant icon Towers (Tier 4) and both of them must be destroyed to remove the Ancient's invulnerability.

Fountains[]

Fountains are located in the respawn areas of both factions' base. They provide max health and mana regeneration to all ally units affected by Rejuvenation Aura icon Rejuvenation Aura.

Effigies[]

Effigy Buildings, or Filler Buildings are the other buildings within a faction's base that act as buffers to delay the lane creeps from damaging the Tower Radiant icon Towers (Tier 4). As of 7.36, there are 7 Effigy Buildings in the base spread around the Ancient.

Five of the seven Effigy Buildings form a half-circle around the Ancient and are customizable with Effigy Blocks, giving them a different look and making them display a text notification when destroyed. This has only cosmetical purposes, each player can customize one of the five Effigy Buildings in their base.

The Radiant icon Radiant has two different types of effigy building models, while the Dire icon Dire has one model for all.

Defender's Gates[]

Defender's Gates are forced fields placed at the walls of the main bases of each faction. These force fields only allow allies to path through them, blocking enemies off completely. Both factions have 1 Defender's Gate, located at the furthest edge of the base walls behind the safe Tower Radiant icon Towers (Tier 3), which is on the west for Radiant icon Radiant, and east for Dire icon Dire. The gates connect to a path that directly leads towards the Unknown Unit icon Tormentors, and are divided from the main lane with a cliff.

Neutral Buildings[]


Main Article: Neutral Buildings

Neutral Buildings are buildings that do not directly belong to any faction, but can be captured by, or be used by either faction. They are permanently invulnerable, so they can never be destroyed and are immune to any ability.

There are 2 types of neutral buildings

  • Capturable buildings, which can be conquered by the players for their faction. Note that the opposing faction can re-capture these buildings.
  • True neutral buildings, which never belong to any faction, but can be used by both factions.

Neutral buildings are always visible through the Fog of War to both teams all times.

Outposts[]

Outposts are buildings located within the primary jungles of both teams, close to the Bounty Rune minimap icon Bounty Rune spots, and beyond both safe lanes towards the map edge on both sides of the map close to the Tier 1 Towers, with a total of 4 Outposts.

Outposts start out belonging to the team on their side. The Outposts within the primary jungles can be captured by the enemy team after destroying any Tower Radiant icon Tower (Tier 2). Taking back an enemy-acquired Outpost can be done without having to destroy an enemy Tower (Tier 2). The Outposts at the edge of the map cannot be captured.

Watchers[]

Twin Gates[]

Twin Gates are buildings located at the north-west and south-east corners of the map, close to the Roshan icon Roshan pits, with a total of 2 Twin Gates.

Although taking on Radiant's and Dire's visual themes, the Twin Gates do not belong to any faction and can be used by all players equally.

Lotus Pools[]

Lotus Pools are buildings located at the west and east edges of the map, closer towards the north and south corners respectively, with a total of 2 Lotus Pools.

Although taking on Radiant's and Dire's visual themes, the Lotus Pools do not belong to any faction and can be used by all players equally.

Shops[]

Four shops exist on the map, two for each side.

  • Base Shop: This shop is located in the Fountain, and sells all basic items and recipes.
  • Secret Shop: This shop is located near the short lane for each side. It sells costlier items needed as ingredients for late-game items.

Minimap[]

Main Article: Minimap

The Minimap is located at the corner of the Head-up display. It gives players an overhead view of the entire map, as well as the ability to issue certain commands. Constant awareness of the minimap is crucial to skilled gameplay.

Vision[]

Ward Spot Indicator

A ward spot sign

Main Article: Vision

Vision defines which areas of the map is visible to the player's team. Areas that are not visible are covered by the Fog of War. Visions can be granted by allied heroes, units, and wards. Trees, walls, and higher terrain will obstruct vision.

Terrain[]

For alternative terrain appearances, see Terrain.

There are six different height levels that have gameplay relevance:

  • River
  • Lowground (mid lanes)
  • Highground (base, side lanes)
  • Elevated (fountain / few cliffs)
  • Cliffs (most other cliffs)
  • Valley (side lane tinker ward spots)

One height level can be connected to another by a stair (passable) or a cliff (obstructed).

If an attack projectile is released, the uphill miss Evasion is calculated depending on where the two units are standing on the impact time.

Pathing[]

Every time a player sends a move command, the pathing takes care of finding the fastest way possible. The path can be blocked by cliffs, Trees, Iron Branches, other units (also known as Body Block) and Traps.

Cliffs are the major component to limit the movement on the map. They can only be surpassed by Forced Movement, Blinks or Unobstructed Movement. Trees define the lane and jungle contours for the most part. They can be destroyed by various means and allow juking in the Fog of War. Body blocking is very important to keep the creep equilibrium at a favorable position in your Lane or to prevent an enemy from escaping until your allies catch up. Traps are mainly intended to cut off the route for chasing or escaping heroes, but they can be used for unconventional pulling methods as well.

Trivia[]

  • The map's total size is approximately 11,000 x 11,000 game units.

The Dota 2 map is ultimately derived from the Starcraft custom map Aeon of Strife, which also featured multiple lanes and a final objective to destroy. The map's current diagonal format was created for Defense of the Ancients, the Warcraft 3 custom map upon which Dota 2 is based.
