Tips[]

  • Mask of Madness is the most cost-effective DPS and Attack Speed item in the game, costing only 14.79 gold per point of attack speed. The second best DPS item is the Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade for an agility hero.
  • Use your abilities before activating the Mask of Madness, particularly if you have a disable such as a stun.
    • The active is extremely useful while farming. Taking more physical damage is negligible when simply running between lanes or hitting lane or jungle creeps, especially when the item itself provides sustain by its lifesteal.
  • In general, an early Mask of Madness is more useful for farming than fighting. Without other damage and survivability items to back it up, the lifesteal alone will not be enough to sustain you in a teamfight.
  • Mask of Madness can be disassembled in later stages of the game to help a hero build a Butterfly icon.png Butterfly, an Echo Sabre icon.png Echo Sabre or an Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence from the Quarterstaff and a Vladmir's Offering icon.png Vladmir's Offering or a Satanic icon.png Satanic from the Morbid Mask.
