Dota 2: The Best Defensive Items in Dota 2 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 consists of many defensive and offensive items. Some of them are good in pretty much all situations, whereas others are more situational. However, the vast majority of players, especially those that are new to the game, tend to only go for offensive damage items. As a result, they die really fast.

Having said that, let's take a look at some of the best defensive items that can help you in tricky situations. This guide is mainly focused at those of you who are new to the game.

Black King Bar

The first item that has to be on your bucket list is Black King Bar. This is one of the items that have the power to single-handedly change the course of a team-fight. Apart from damage and strength, BKB also allows you to be immune to spells, which is very strong against some heroes.

Hearth of Tarrasque

The second item that you might want to look at is a Hearth of Tarrasque. This item is capable of providing you with tons of raw HP, which is very good when you're just dying way too fast. However, it's a lot more expensive than BKB, which should be taken into account.

Eul's Scepter of Divinity

The last item on our list is relatively cheap, which is why so many people tend to buy it early on. Eul's provides good mana regen, decent intelligence, and the ability to save yourself in tricky situations.
