Notes:

  • Since the dug-up Kobold is a neutral unit, it attacks both factions, can drop neutral items, and scales like other neutral creeps as well.
    • Kobold gives an average gold bounty of 6 Gold.
  • Dug-up items cannot be sold and are fully shareable.
    • If a dug-up item combines into a stack of the same item, the whole stack becomes unsellable.
  • The same Trusty Shovel cannot spawn the same reward twice in a row.

Notes:

  • Since Trusty Shovel can only be obtained past the 7:30th minute mark, the Bounty Runes will be worth at least 45 Gold per hero.
    • When bottling a Bounty Rune, it grants gold based on the time at which it is activated, not bottled.
  • Using a stored Bounty Rune with Bottle only grant 2 charges.
  • Grants reliable gold to each player of the team that picks it up.
  • An over-head text shows how much gold was given exactly. This number is not visible to enemies.
  • When gaining gold from a Bounty Rune, a small golden particle effect briefly bursts from the player, visible to everyone.
  • In Turbo Mode, the gold given by Bounty Runes is doubled, despite the notification message showing standard values.
