Additional Information[]

  • On his third death and onwards, Roshan icon Roshan drops the Refresher Shard as a third item if he was slain in the Radiant pit. In the Dire pit, he drops an Aghanim's Blessing - Roshan icon Aghanim's Blessing - Roshan instead.
  • Although Refresher Shard cannot be bought, it can be sold for 500 Gold. However, only the hero whose main inventory it enters first can sell it.
  • If a Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Courier is the first unit to pick up the Refresher Shard, it cannot be sold by anyone, even if it remains on the Courier or is given to a hero afterwards.
  • If a Refresher Shard directly enters a backpack when picked up, it remains sellable by anyone until it enters any unit's main inventory.
  • Unlike the Aegis of the Immortal icon Aegis of the Immortal, Refresher Shard is not reclaimed by Roshan icon Roshan.
