General[edit]

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, placed in the backpack or destroyed.

Ability[edit]

Drops on death and cannot be destroyed.

The initial state is called the Original Rapier. If the Original Rapier is picked up by an ally, it will be muted until it is returned to the original owner.


If an enemy hero picks up the Divine Rapier, it permanently becomes the Free Rapier. The Free Rapier is not muted for allies, and cannot be manually returned to its owner.
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[edit]

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.

Recommended Heroes[edit]
