Battle Fury is usually picked up early in the game, to boost your farming capability throughout the rest of the game. Most notably Anti-Mage aims for a fast Battle Fury to farm the jungle quickly utilizing his Blink ability and then returning to the lane to farm lane creeps.

  • The battlefury is good for farming but not for fighting because the damage per gold is low. Don`t get it if the enemy is very aggressive and your team asking for help unless the enemy team uses illusions and summoned units.
  • Effective against illusions, summoned units, jungle stacks, ancient stacks and mega creeps.
    • A battlefury allow to farm faster than a Midas for a melee hero. You can get this item after boots start with a ring of regen if you are laning or get damage if you are jungling, then get a mobility item like Blink Dagger to reach camps faster.
  • The cleave benefits from critical hits, including those from items and ignore the armor value and evasion.
  • Having Battlefury can help greatly against an enemy Nature`s Prophet, since some carries have little means to escape his Sprout without it (the most obvious being Juggernaut and Sven)
  • Melee heroes with high attack speed can push far more effectively with Battle Fury, even in late game. Critical hits help too.

Recommended heroes

  • Anti-Mage needs Battle Fury to farm, since he is terrible without items and has trouble farming fast without it. Combined with Blink, he can flash-farm the jungle and quickly build his much needed items if not ganked.
Phantom Assassin
  • Phantom Assassin does not necessarily need it, but it helps her farm and build items quicker. This will reduce her ability to get early kills since she would have to farm in times she could fight.
  • Juggernaut can farm really fast with it when combined with his base attack time. He can pick up the Ring of Health and Void Stone at the side shop during the laning phase, allowing him to use his abilities more often and ignore harassment.
Ember Spirit
  • Battle Fury is a must for a physical damage-built Ember Spirit, since almost his entire damage output relies on Sleight of Fist, which can deal enormous damage with Battle Fury but little without it. Ember Spirit is also the most reliable carrier of multiple Battlefuries, since each one greatly increases his damage and unlike other carries, he stays safe during Sleight of Fist while it greatly weakens the survivability of other carriers by having multiple Battlefuries.
  • Tusk can get Battle Fury if he is built to get the most out of his Walrus PUNCH!, which you will see many do. Battlefury gives him the ability to damage more than 1 enemy with his punch, giving "Carry Tusk" more teamfight presence.
Troll Warlord
  • Troll Warlord can get Battlefury, but this is very situational. Troll Warlord can be a melee hero and can farm the jungle much more efficiently with Battlefury, but he needs items which help him fight and deal damage such as Daedalus and Monkey King Bar. Furthermore, Battlefury`s cleave will not work while you are ranged, so you will lose the cleave effect when attacking opponents from range.



Battle Fury is a sustainable farming item for melee carry heroes, allowing them to attack multiple enemies at once.
Cleave damage does not hit the primary target. It deals the user`s damage in a radius behind the target. Cleave effects fully stack with all other sources of cleave. When the cleave percentage is over 100%, more damage is done to the secondary targets than the primary target. Cleave damage is physical and ignores Armor Value but not Armor Type. When stacking battle furies the cleave damage from each one is dealt as a separate instance of damage.
