Divine Rapier

Demon Edge Sacred Relic

General[edit]

Divine Rapier is an Upgrade Item listed at the Main Shop, under Weapons. It is assembled entirely with items from the Secret Shop.
Divine Rapier is generally bought either as a last-ditch attempt to win or if a team has already guaranteed a win because of its property of dropping upon death.
Divine Rapier provides a flat +300 damage to a hero, allowing for extremely fast kills or farm. Although a very expensive item, it is the most cost efficient damage item.
Divine Rapier cannot be sold or destroyed.

Ability[edit]

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.
  • If a hero dies and resurrects through Reincarnation, 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 Divine 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.

Recommended Heroes[edit]

Wraith King Medusa Gyrocopter Kunkka
