Cooldown symbol.png 13


  • Gains 1 charge whenever a visible enemy unit, including neutral creeps, uses an ability within the radius.
  • Passively triggered spells (e.g. Quill Spray, Borrowed Time, Multicast, Reincarnation) do not add charges.
  • When having multiple Magic Sticks or Magic Wands in the inventory, the oldest one gains charges first. If it is full, the second oldest one starts to gain charges.
  • Upon upgrading a Magic Stick into a Magic Wand, all its current charges are carried over.


Gankers and supports especially will want this item due to the amount of charges obtained through ganks and skirmishes, allowing them to tower dive or gank farther with the restoration. For carry heroes, whether or not it is recommended depends on if the player thinks that their hero will be ganked often or will participate in frequent ganks or teamfights. With a gold price of 200 gold and final upgrade price of 500, it offers cheap survivability when you are low on health and need to escape and extra mana when you need to secure a kill.

It is also highly recommended against heroes that frequently use low cooldown spells, such as Zeus and Batrider, as the frequent spell usage will accumulate a lot of charges on the Magic Stick quickly. It is also recommended that you buy this as first item in a trilane against trilane situation.




  • Magic Sticks allows the user to get a quick burst of healing, or to use one last ability in a fight. Even during the midgame, when the boost is less noticeable, a Magic Stick can still save lives or ensure kills.
  • The Magic Stick makes an excellent item against heroes that spam abilities while in the lane, as the charges can help to mitigate taken damage, or to cast more of own abilities. It is very versatile, and most of the time a good item to have.
