Dota 2: The Best Aghanim’s Shard Upgrades

Here are some of the best Aghanim’s Shards in Dota 2 right now.

After waiting for several months, we finally received the newest Dota 2 update. As expected, there were tons of changes, such as a new hero, new items, and so on. Speaking of new items, one of the biggest changes to the game is the addition of Aghanim’s Shards.

This item will change the game because it either adds a new ability or upgrades some of the existing ones. This means that it works really similarly to Aghanim’s Scepter. However, it is a lot cheaper, which means that more heroes can purchase it, especially supports.

Even though it gives a lot of benefits, there are some disadvantages as well, such as the fact the item does not provide any stats. Despite that, it will definitely be one of the most popular item choices in Dota 2 for at least several months. Hence we’ve decided to take a look at some of the best Aghanim’s Shard upgrades.


If you purchase an Aghanim’s Shard while playing Enigma, your Black Hole will do a non-interrupting pull towards its center in a 1200 AoE. In other words, you will have 3x the range of the regular Black Hole, which is just insane.

Even though the heroes can still use their spells while they are being pulled, this will ensure that they will stay in place, which will allow your team to deal as much damage as possible.

The good thing about Enigma is that the hero farms really fast compared to other supports, so it should be able to get the item fairly early on.


Alchemist is the fastest-farming heroes in the game, which is why we decided to add him to the list. Even though we rarely get to see Alchemist support, this will probably change because the newest update allows the hero to receive a new ability called Berserk Potion.

It can only be used on an ally or on Alchemist himself and provides +50 Attack Speed and +40 HP regen for 10 seconds. In other words, the hero will become even stronger in the early game.


Another hero that deserves to be on this list is Batrider. If the hero purchases an Aghanim’s Shard, he can cast Flaming Lasso on an allied hero. This will grant them 80% damage reduction, which means that Batrider can help the two core heroes really easily.


Earthshaker is one of the most popular heroes in Dota 2. Thus we weren’t surprised when we found out that it has a really cool Aghanim’s Shard upgrade. It will reduce the cooldown of Fissure by two seconds and will allow the hero to walk on it. Moreover, when ES casts as a spell, the Aftershock effect will be applied throughout the fissure path.
