Comparison of HoN and DotA/Items

From Heroes of Newerth Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Items[edit | edit source]

Similar to heroes, HoN shares great similarities to DotA in terms of items. Every item that had existed in DotA was ported to HoN during beta, but similar to heroes, items were rebalanced, changed, and some were even removed.

Item Shop[edit | edit source]

Item categories work slightly differently in HoN and DotA. Basic item categories are the same, and Common, Weapons, Support and Armor are parallel to Initiative, Combative, Supportive and Protective, respectively. There is no Caster or Artifact category, and items within those categories were moved to different categories. HoN has a Morph Attack category, which lists items that possess Attack Modifiers.

Secret Shop[edit | edit source]

In DotA, the Secret Shop resides outside of the base and sells high-end, expensive basic items.

In HoN, the Secret Shop was replaced with the Observatory, which sells Wards of Sight, Potions, and Dusts of Revelation. Secret Shop items can now be bought in the base, under the Legendary category.
