  • Cannot be cast on self.
  • The debuff on self and the buff on allies/debuff on enemies are independent from each other. Dispelling one does not dispel the other.
  • A unit can be affected by the buff and the debuff at the same time, but not by multiple buffs or debuffs from it.
    • This means when two opposing heroes cast it on each other, the debuffs refresh each other.
    • When two allied heroes cast it on each other, both receive the buff and the debuff which are independent from each other.
    • However, the buff and the debuff fully stack with those applied by Solar Crest.

Recommended HeroesEdit

  • It is the most cost effective item to increase the damage of Death Ward, amplify the damage of your allies and synergize with Maledict. It also provides mana regen for his spells and heal and defensive armor.
  • Medallion of Courage's armor reduction stacks with   Wave of Terror and works with   Vengeance Aura, allowing Vengeful Spirit's team to focus down single targets very quickly.
    • This tactic is especially effective against   Roshan.
  • Medallion of Courage's armor reduction stacks with the armor reduction from   Bad Juju.
  •   Gravekeeper's Cloak keeps Visage protected while using Medallion of Courage.
  • Visage's position in the backline while he controls his   Familiars keeps him safe during Medallion of Courage's debuff.
  • Bounty Hunter can use Medallion of Courage right before getting a hit with   Jinada, then retreat with   Shadow Walk, while his team finishes off his target.
  •   Walrus PUNCH! hits extremely hard when armor is reduced by Medallion of Courage.
  • Medallion of Courage's armor reduction stacks with the armor reduction from   Corrosive Haze.


  • Medallion of Courage is a common item on ganking heroes, as it provides additional physical damage through armor reduction, and grants some mana regeneration which helps regaining some mana between ganks.
  • The armor reduction of the ability is a great tool to speed up killing   Roshan, especially early on.
