Default Ring of Aquila


Please tell me what is the use of this item except that it saves a slot. What heroes would you get it on. Is it worth it?

EDIT: I only see Morphling making use of it.

I'd say nobody. Wraith delays your core and what agy hero builds basilus and not vladimir, unless this item gets some kind of buff so it can be usefull to roamers like venge/potm only pubber will get it.

Useful for every agi besides maybe sylla and drow.

One of the most cost effective item for a slot. I pretty much always make a wraith + RoB for every agi besides sylla and drow anyways. Now I get to keep the bonus until much later in the game.

Phase + RoA + Wand will be core for every agi hero I play.

It's pretty useful. Sniper Morph Weaver Potm Troll could benefit from it, thought for Troll, you might wish to upgrade to Vlad depending on your build. Pretty neat on Xin too.

Pretty much the best new item in the game since it combines two already great items into one slot.

I don't envy anyone laning against a weaver who has this.

I'd make it on Sniper for example. About the Vlads, Aquila can be disassembled.

It's nice, but I'm kinda disappointed. I wanted to see Band building up to some item that gives more than a slot.

saves me an item slot on every hero i buy wraith bands and a basi on
want a list of those heroes?
Xin, sniper, morph, potm, gyro, sometimes gondar, clinkz, sometimes PA, Veno, sometimes Terrorblade, Razor, Dusa

a common problem with the insanely cost effectivebands and basi is that they take up inv slots, which this fixes

how bad at dota do you have to be to think this is useless?

AGI heroes which can clear creeps effectively. POTM, Gyro etc etc can all make great use of the extra slot.

null-> dagon
wraith-> RoA

Perfect item since when I always find myself with a RoB and a band in my inventory, two great items now taking up one less slot? I dare say this is extremely stronk.

I'd really get it on any agi hero that can make use of any of the attributes this item provides.

Morph at the top of the list.

Really any AGI heroes that need passive regen with a mini boost in DPS can now get it.

I see people mentioning Weaver, but I'd personally focus on a Vit Booster and RoH into a Relic.

especially (sidelane) potm deserves a mention imo, she just thrives for both stats, MP and dmg early-mid.
