Located in the northwest, it will shift to the southeast as the day goes to night. During changes, goes to the twin gate and attacks if touched. After being vanquished twice, will now drop cheese rather than shard.

Drops the Aghanim Scepter during the day and a refresher at night, but only after being beaten three times. Roshan has become more tanky as a result of the HP scaling boost.


It is placed between the tiers 2 and 3 offlane towers, spawns at the 20 minute mark, and respawns after 10 minutes with a health and damage reflection bonus. All damage inflicted to it is reflected to nearby heroes.

Tormentor will drop a shard to the lowest networth hero when it is slain. If every hero already has a shard, it will instead provide gold and experience.

Combine three healing lotuses to make one great healing lotus, and three great healing lotuses to make one greater healing lotus.

One great healing lotus provides 400 hp and mana, while one greater healing lotus provides 900 hp and mana. Three larger lotus may be combined with a block of cheese to provide oneself a 500 damage barrier; the barrier is permanent and will not dissipate on death.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
