Flying Courier

Animal Courier

General[edit]

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.
Melee heroes do 50% extra damage to the Flying courier.
The courier is invulnerable at the allied Fountain. The flying courier has 150 hp, 10 armor, and 430 movespeed. It is slowed to 301 movespeed while carrying an empty Bottle.
The flying courier also has 400 / 400 flying vision and a 6 slot inventory for carrying items.
