Hero Attributes

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki
Drawn from deep within.

Hero Attributes are the three main aspects found in all heroes that determine the five scaling values of Hit Points, Mana Points, Armor, Attack Speed, and Damage.
These attributes are Strength Strength, Agility Agility, and Intelligence Intelligence. Attributes can increase by leveling up, choosing talents, buying stat items, and using some abilities.

Primary Attribute[edit]

Of the three attributes, each hero specializes in one. This is called the Primary Attribute and it determines their attack damage. Each point in the primary attribute increases attack damage by one. Usually a hero's primary attribute will grow faster than the other two attributes. Every hero gains a constant amount of Strength, Agility, and Intelligence per level unique to their hero.



Strength increases maximum health and health regeneration.

Each point of Strength:


Agility increases armor and attack speed.

Each point of Agility:

  • Increases Attack Speed by 1
  • Increases Armor by 0.14 (every 7 points = 1 armor)
  • Increases the damage of Agility heroes by 1

  • Increases Mana Points by 12
  • Increases Mana Point Regeneration by 0.04 (every 25 points = 1 mana regen)
