Dota Underlords Items Guide – Items Tier List, Effects

In our Dota Underlords Items Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about items tier list, effects, and the best items to use in the game.

Similar to Auto Chess, DOTA Underlords has a wide variety of items to unlock and choose from, each of which provides a different benefit to you, the player. In our Items Guide below, we will discuss the effects of each of these items along with their supposed tier in the meta of the game.

DOTA Underlords Items

Items in DOTA Underlords have both passive and active effects. For this reason, they are called Global Items in the game. All of these items are extremely beneficial when it comes to changing the tide of the battle or getting an upper hand early on.

Your chance of unlocking them mainly stems out from your battles against the AI. This refers to the “Creep Waves” of AI opponents that you will have to defeat periodically between human opponents.

Although they are rather difficult to put down, if you do so, you will be granted high-tier items. Below you may find listed all items according to their tiers and their corresponding effects.
