Additional Information[]

  • 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.png Courier is the first unit to pick up the 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.png Aegis of the Immortal, Refresher Shard is not reclaimed by Roshan icon.png Roshan.

Resets the cooldowns of all your items and abilities.

Notes:

  • Interrupts the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Does not reset the cooldown of the following items: Refresher Orb icon.png Refresher Orb, Ex Machina icon.png Ex Machina and other Refresher Shards.
    • Does not share cooldowns with the aforementioned items as well.
  • Only refreshes items in the owner's inventory and backpack. Items in the stash, in other units' inventories, or dropped items are unaffected.
    • Only refreshes items owned by the owner. Allied items in the inventory are not refreshed.
    • Visually resets the cooldown of Tranquil Boots (Active) icon.png Tranquil Boots, but does not skip the broken state.
  • Refreshes all abilities owned by the caster. This includes hidden (e.g. sub-abilities) or inactive abilities (i.e. Invoked abilities).
    • Replenishes all charges of charge-based abilities as well.
    • However, inactive abilities acquired during Morph are not refreshed.
    • Abilities acquired via Spell Steal are only refreshed when Rubick minimap icon.png Rubick owns them upon refreshing.
    • Does not skip the fade delay for Cloak and Dagger.


Tips[]

  • The Refresher Shard is basically a Refresher Orb icon.png Refresher Orb with a single charge, so the same tips apply to it.
  • However, due to it having no mana cost, and no gold cost, it opens a lot of possibilities for heroes who normally don't or can't buy a Refresher Orb, either due to the lack of mana supporting combos, being unable to farm it up, or it being too ineffective for the item slot.
  • The Refresher Shard does not share a cooldown with Refresher Orb. Combined with the lack of a mana cost, this means it makes it possible for heroes who already have a Refresher Orb to use their spells three times in a fight.
  • In some scenarios, it might be worth it to sell the Refresher Shard for its selling price of gold to buy a key item sooner rather than consuming it.

Trivia[]

  • The Refresher Shard's icon and in-game model are based on Refresher Orb icon.png Refresher Orb. Its active uses the same sound and visual effect as Refresher Orb.
  • The pop-up that appears when you hover over the item on the ground shows a buying price of 1000 Gold, but when you pick it up, the pop-up shows the selling price of 500 Gold.
