  • The channeling must succeed to get a reward.
  • Since the dug up Kobold is a neutral unit, it attacks both factions, and can drop neutral items as well.
  • Dug up items cannot be sold and are fully shareable.
  • The same Trusty Shovel cannot spawn the same reward twice in a row.


  • Assume Trusty Shovel will be used instantly when it's off cooldown, statistically it will give the team 88.5+7.85x GPM or item of the same price, and 63.4+1.57x GPM for the hero using it (x is every time 5 minutes passed, x=0 when the game starts).
