I'm starting to play DoTA, and in order to not get lost in the game, I keep a hero guide open. The other day, I picked the Nerubian Assasin, and when I checked his entry in the guide and started to follow the item order, I couldn't find the third item on the Core Items list.

The item functions by storing up charges every time an opponent casts a spell near by, and then you can use these charges to gain health and mana. Additionally, it is the result of mixing other items together in a recipe.

I was unable to find that item in particular in a more general item guide.

Can anyone identify this item for me?

I found it!

Magic Wand

It was the Magic wand, which is formed from 3 Ironwood Branches plus the Magic Stick.

Do you mean Shiva's Guard or Necronomicon? Here are all the other items

thanks. It was the Magic Wand what I was asking for. But thanks – Cheluis Apr 6 '11 at 14:47
no problem. I though you were asking about the 3 item to build for anubrak from that site – Rohan Monga Apr 6 '11 at 16:49
