Crimson Guard is an upgrade Item purchasable from the Armor section in the Home Shop. It is a common support item used to help teams last longer during ganks, pushes, and team fights because of its powerful damage block ability along with its good bonus hp and armor.
- Armor bonus does not stack with the armor bonus from the active abilities of Mekansm and Buckler. However each buff has its own independent duration.
- Multiple Guards will not stack the armor bonus, it will only refresh the armor bonus duration.
- Does not affect units that have been affected by Guard in the last 46 seconds.
- Can be dispelled.
Similar to buying a Mekansm or a Pipe of Insight, this support item makes your entire team tankier against physical damage. It is a good option for heroes that need more physical damage resistance but can't handle the mana cost of Mekansm.
