  • Reincarnation cannot be prevented in any way. If a hero dies with it, it is used.
    • If the wielder has the Reincarnation ability, the ability triggers first if it is usable.
  • When expiring, restores in the form of regeneration, so it restores 2% of maximum health and 2% of maximum mana in 0.1 second intervals.
  • The hero`s max health and mana are checked periodically and the values adapted instantly.
  • Since it heals for a fixed percentage over a fixed duration, it does not always guarantee a full heal.

Aegis was previously a purchaseable item, built with a Stout Shield and a recipe, and containing three charges. It was removed from the shop in 6.42 and changed to drop from Roshan instead.

Additional information

  • The Aegis of the Immortal cannot be dropped or sold.
  • The Aegis disappears when one of the following happens, be it in a player`s inventory, or still on the ground where Roshan dropped it:
    • Roshan respawns 8⃢₀ₓ11 minutes after being slain.
    • The Aegis wielder dies and reincarnates, using up the Aegis.
    • Five minutes pass since the Aegis was picked up by a hero.
  • This means it is impossible for multiple Aegis to exist in a match.


  • Aegis was previously an ordinary recipe item that contained three charges. After it was removed, it was then obtainable as a droppable item from Roshan.
  • In Greek mythology, an aegis that was described as "ageless and immortal" was presented to Zeus.



Aegis of the Immortal (also known as Aegis) drops from Roshan every time he is killed. It grants the holder an extra life. The Aegis of the Immortal is reclaimed by Roshan 5 minutes after it has been picked up or when Roshan respawns. This means that it is impossible to have more than one Aegis of the Immortal in the game at the same time.
The Aegis of the Immortal cannot be dropped, sold or placed in the backpack.


Ability: Passive
Affects: Self
The Aegis of the Immortal brings the hero who holds it back to life with full health and mana 5 seconds after death, the hero respawning at the location of their death with the Aegis removed from their inventory.
Reclaimed by Roshan 5 minutes after it has been picked up or when Roshan respawns. When the Aegis expires unused, it heals the hero fully over 5 seconds (regen dispels on damage from players).
Respawn Time:

  • Does not count as an actual death. Dying into reincarnation does not result in gold loss,
    gold or exp for the enemy, and items that normally drop on death will not drop.
  • It does however still trigger on-death bonuses, such as an enemy Culling Blade or Sadist.
  • The Aegis holder provides ground vision of their death area while reincarnating.

Recommended Heroes

Heroes such as carries and initiators often found in the middle of team fights benefit the most from this item.
