Sacrificial Stone (Pre-2.6.8)
Sacrificial Stone Old.jpg
All it takes is the heart of an innocent--tormented to the point of despair before being ripped untimely from its host--to create the bleeding rock known as a Sacrificial Stone. These accursed but prized artifacts both bestow and restore Health and Magic, and boost the rate at which one learns from battle. Despite these many boons, only the most desperate warrior would claim such a thing.

This version of the Sacrificial Stone was a direct port of DotA's Bloodstone. On Version 2.6.8, Sacrificial Stone was remade to its current version, becoming an upgraded Grave Locket with the "gain experience while dead" feature, and the mechanics for gaining Health and Mana Regeneration enemy per hero death was moved to Icon of the Goddess.


Upon death, respawn time and gold loss is reduced based on charges. Adds a charge when a nearby enemy hero dies.


+1 Mana Regeneration per charge

+.25 Health Regen per charge

+25 Max Health per charge

On Death:
-Removes half of the current charges
-Heal allies for 400 + (Charges x 25) Health in a 1700 radius.
-With 1 or more charges, you will respawn 3 seconds faster and lose 25 less gold per charge.
-Continue to gain experience and vision at the location you died, until respawn.
