DotA 2 Item: Divine Rapier

Shops: Main Shop
Categories: Weapons
Passive Effect Total Cost: 5600

Item Details

Divine Rapier

+350 Damage
+25% Spell Amplification

Additional Information

So powerful, it cannot have a single owner.

When a hero carrying the Divine Rapier is killed, it is dropped. A dropped Divine Rapier cannot be destroyed by attacking it.

The Divine Rapier has two states that determine whether it is manually droppable and whether it provides a damage bonus to the carrying hero. The initial state is called Original Rapier. As soon as an enemy hero picks up the Divine Rapier, it permanently becomes Free Rapier.

If a hero dies and resurrects through Reincarnation, the Divine Rapier will not drop.

Divine Rapier can be purchased by a courier, but cannot otherwise be picked up by a courier. (Thus it is not possible for a courier to ever carry a Free Rapier.) If a courier carrying a Divine Rapier is killed, the Rapier is dropped. A courier can manually drop a Divine Rapier.

Although it is a very expensive item, it is the most cost-effective damage item. Keep it in mind when your team is losing, Divine Rapier is a great last-stand item in such conditions.

It is muted to enemy heroes and ask a friend to pick it up for you if it fell,,,,, Better not to buy if you are not sure about surviving,,,,

It should, it's a game changer, scourge goes 30-15, troll decides to ****ing get 3 rapiers, dies AND ****ING DROW PICKS IT UP AND ENDS THE GAME.

just a reflex do you have an OCD to comment on every single item with 'First etc'

Rapier should drop, it would be insane if it didnt

I believe so. I remember watching a streamed game where an item dropped off of a dead enemy, but I'm not entirely sure. Can anyone conform?

Does Rapier drop upon death like how Divine Rapier did in DotA?
