Dota 2 - The best items for Sand King ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Sand King is one of the most diverse Dota 2 heroes when it comes down to positioning. He can be played in pretty much every single position, apart from "carry", which is why you can often see a lot of players picking the hero. However, if you want to have the biggest impact possible, you have to go to the offlane. There, depending on what you have to lane against, you can absolutely demolish the enemy safe lane because you have one of the best passive skills for the laning stage.

With that said, here are some of the best items that you can purchase for this hero, apart from boots.

Although some players tend to avoid it, purchasing a Blink Dagger can make all the difference in the world, especially during team fights. This item is not that expensive, which means that many people can buy it pretty early on. Apart from a lot of mobility, this item also gives you proper initiation, which is something that's really important for heroes such as Sand King.

Aghanim's Scepter

Ever since SK's Aghs changed, this is one of the best items that you can get for him. It's not that expensive but the value that you get from it is just insane. Now, SK's ult gives him the power to use his stun from a really long distance, which means that he has another reliable method to initiate or escape.

Veil of Discord

This is one of the most cost-efficient items that you can buy as Sand King. When it's used alongside his ult, SK can deal insane amounts of damage during the mid-game.


Sometimes, you can come across Sand King players who go for a Radiance. Even though we don't recommend you doing it, it could work sometimes.

Shiva's Guard

This is an amazing item for SK because it gives him armor, as well as slow, which can make a lot of difference whenever you're casting your ultimate. However, this item is a little bit more expensive, which is why you usually see it later on. What's more, there are other essential items that the hero has to get before he can purchase Shiva's.
