Hero Attributes

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki
Drawn from deep within.

Hero Attributes are three aspects found in all heroes. They determine the five scaling values of Hit Points, Mana Points, Armor, Attack Speed, and Damage. Every hero gains a constant amount of Strength, Agility, and Intelligence per level unique to their hero.

These attributes are Strength, Agility, and Intelligence.

Primary Attribute[edit]

Each hero specializes in one of the three attributes. This is called the Primary Attribute, which comes with Perks.

Perks increase damage for all heroes, Status Resistance for Strength heroes, Movement Speed for Agility heroes, and Magic Resistance for Intelligence heroes.



Strength increases maximum health and health regeneration. If Strength is the primary attribute, it will also increase damage and Status Resistance.
