General

Divine Rapier is a powerful weapon assembled with items from the Secret Shop. Divine Rapier is generally bought as either a last-ditch attempt to win, or a way to maintain a big lead. Although it is very expensive, it is the most cost efficient damage item.

Divine Rapier cannot be sold or destroyed.

Ability

Divine Right
Ability: Passive
Affects: Self
When a hero carrying the Divine Rapier is killed, it is dropped on death.
The initial state is called the Original Rapier. If the Original Rapier is picked up by an ally, it will be muted, only working on the allied hero who purchased it.
However as soon as an enemy hero picks up the Divine Rapier, it permanently becomes the Free Rapier. The Free Rapier is no longer muted for allies, cannot be manually dropped, and will only drop on death.


Notes
  • If a hero dies and resurrects, the Divine Rapier will not drop.
  • Divine Rapier can be purchased by a Courier, but cannot 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 also manually drop an Original Rapier.

Strategy

Recommended for Wraith King and Medusa due to their supreme durability, greatly reducing the likelihood of the Rapier being dropped. Gyrocopter and Kunkka benefit from the Rapier as their abilities Flak Cannon and Tidebringer provide huge area of effect physical damage with the Rapier, but they have no special survivability and should be extremely cautious with the Rapier. However any carry hero has Aegis can consider Rapier.
