Recipe line1.png
Animal Courier


Flying Courier is bought from the Consumables section in the Main Shop. The Flying Courier is used to ferry items to players on the field of battle faster than the Animal Courier. Must be purchased after obtaining the Animal Courier to automatically upgrade it into a Flying Courier. The courier can be upgraded from anywhere on the map, without the need to visit a shop. The courier cannot use most items, but it can use a select few listed here.
The flying courier has a 4 minute 30 second stock time, meaning that it cannot be purchased until 3 minutes after creeps spawn.

If killed, 175 gold will be awarded to all enemy players. It will respawn at the fountain in three minutes. Any items it was carrying will be inaccessible until then.
The courier is invulnerable at the allied Fountain. The flying courier has 150 hp, 10 armor, and 350 movespeed. It is slowed to 245 movespeed while carrying an empty Bottle.
The flying courier also has 400 / 400 flying vision and a 6 slot inventory for carrying items.

Version Changes[1]
  • Cannot be purchased until 3 minutes after creeps spawn
  • While empty, Bottle causes couriers to move 30% slower
  • Courier no longer block neutral creeps from spawning
