Notes
  • The experience gained is not shared with nearby heroes and is only given to the user.
  • Cannot target Ancients and Necronomicon units.
  • Cannot be refreshed by
     .

Strategy[edit]

Creeps[edit]

  • It is most effective to use on large high level creeps that give more experience, making the most out of the multiplier.
  • For lane creeps, it is always most effective to use on a Ranged Creep. For Mega Creeps, Midas can be used on either because both provide the same bounty and experience.

Situational Counters[edit]

  • Hand of Midas can be used on creeps controlled by
     , Chen, and Enchantress. This is an effective means of instantly killing enemy controlled creeps.
  • Axe
      can also be countered using Midas, as a creep kill removes the debuff.
