I am making some custom recommended item sets for some heroes in Dota 2. What I want is a complete list of what the code for each item is.

If you do not know what I am talking about here is a guide that should provide some more context: Custom Recommended Items Guide

An example:

Linken's Sphere = item_sphere
Hood of Defiance = item_hood_of_defiance

I would like this complete list. Thanks!


I suggest you to take a look to file <Steam>\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\resource\dota_english.txt, it contains all language definitions.

If you search for DOTA_Tooltip_Ability_item you should find a section of items tooltip definitions.
