Shops: Main Shop
Categories: Consumables

Item Details

Animal Courier

Creature that carries items to and from your base.

A player's courier levels up as the player's hero does. With each level, the courier gains additional 10 movement speed, and 10 health.

On the other side, each level also increases the courier's gold bounty by 7 and respawn time by 7 seconds.
Besides these level bonuses, certain levels have additional effects:

  • Level 4: The courier gains a pair of wings, turning into a flying unit with flying vision.
  • Level 10: Unlocks the Speed Burst ability.
  • Level 20: Unlocks the Shield ability.

Additional Information

Losing the donkey is punishable by death.


  • Moves at 290 movement speed
  • Interupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The Animal Courier is not a valid target for most spells. A list of spells which affect the courier can be found below.
  • The Animal Courier is invulnerable when near its team Fountain.
  • Courier movement speed is reduced by 15% while carrying consumables
