Dota 2: Which heroes have the best Aghanim's Upgrade ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


There used to be times where Aghanim Scepter was only allowed on a handful of heroes and even then, people rarely purchased it. However, the situation now is very different because nearly every single Dota 2 hero has an Aghanim Upgrade. Having said that, instead of his ult, some Aghs change other spells as well. 

Needless to say, not every Aghanim Scepter upgrade is the best, which is why we decided to sort out those that work the best. Without further ado, here are the top three Aghanim Upgrades.


Even though Lina is not the most popular Dota 2 hero right now, her Aghnaim Upgrade still remains one of the strongest ones in Dota 2, especially when she is a core. Many people tend to underestimate Laguna Blade during the late game because they have a lot of resistance. However, once Lina gets an Aghs, her ult deals Pure damage, which means that she can one-shot some heroes, especially if she has a Refresher Shard/Orb

Ember Spirit

Ember Spirit used to be one of the heroes that were played entirely as  "glass cannon". What this means is that people were just buying offensive items and waited for that big critical strike to come in. However, those days are now long gone. Nowadays, people have an entirely new approach to this hero because he is mainly used as a tempo controller. As such, most players often opt for a more magical-damage build, which is where the Aghanim's Scepter comes to play. This item providers ES with 2 more remnants, reduces the cooldown and makes him even faster. As a result, Ember becomes a lot harder to kill and does significantly more damage.


Last, but most definitely not least, we have "Aquaman" and his infamous Aghanim Scepter that absolutely ripped through the enemies in patch 7.22. This item gave morphling insane amounts of damage because all abilities had a very low cooldown.

Another hero that deserves an honorable mention here is Lion. His ult is very similar to Lina's in a way because it does a lot of magical damage. However, unlike Lina's, it scales over time and when you buy Aghs, it has a very low CD and it becomes AoE, which is just insane.
