Item Details

Refresher Orb

+8 Mana Regeneration

Active: Reset Cooldowns

Resets the cooldowns of all your items and abilities.


Additional Information

A powerful artifact created for wizards.

Using refresher orb allows some skills to have two instances running simultaneously; for example, Eye of the Storm. Note though that some spells are specifically coded to not be able to run multiple instances at the same time (e.g. Exorcism). Before building Refresher Orb, be sure that the ability you aim to use it with supports multiple instances at the same time.


  • Interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Replenishes charge-based abilities.
  • Only refreshes items which are in your inventory. Does not refresh items in stash, in other units' (e.g. couriers) inventory or dropped items.
  • Refreshes all spells owned by the user. This includes hidden or inactive spells (e.g. invoked spells, or Whirling Axes (Ranged)).
  • This means that it does not refresh all spells for Rubick. Stolen spells are only refreshed when he owns them upon refreshing.
  • Since items of same kind always share coodlown, it is not possible to refresh a Refresher Orb's cooldown with another Refresher Orb.

does it works on razor? =/ im thinking of 2 times the static link and 2 times the thunder cloud~

Aghanim's Scepter + Refresher Orb on Razor is just too fun to not try this :D

Sure, that works on Razor and I saw some guides actually recommending that, as well as few Dota commentators.

Overall, it is good item on:

The beast hero with is Warlock , make it with agamin's septers ans you will have alway 4 golem.(when the skill cowldown (ulti is the same has refresh orb: 165sec) ). It's the BEAST way for push or defend in 5v5 at town.

its a good item with Earthshaker, his CC capabilities are great, but the mana cost for this (and the cost in general) are alot, so you cant just get this early game, after your mana pool is big enough (id say around 2000?) either way, its a late game item.

Zeus comes to mind for me, pretty much a core item for him.

Generally great for those mass CC ultis such as Tide and Warlock

It works well on aoe spells such as OD ulti and Zeus

A lot of them, it's required for heroes like Zeus, Enigma, etc etc, occasionally fountain sitting with spectre and zeus xD
