Thread: [Confirmed] Courier Does Not Gain Bonuses From Carried Items (Especially Boots)

    [Confirmed] Courier Does Not Gain Bonuses From Carried Items (Especially Boots)

    Summary - Purchasing hp and mana increasing items like the three boosters for the courier/flying courier does not increase its hp/mana capacity of the courier.

    1) Purchase Courier
    2) Upgrade to flying
    3) Purchase hp/mana boosting item(in my case a soulbooster)
    4) Courier does not have increased hp/mp.

    Result - Courier with no boosted stats.

    Expected - Courier would have increased hp/mana so that it could for example use a dagon or necrobook.

    Expected should be result.

    Items should grant Couriers stats (HP / MANA)

    Not intended, they could be given a dummy item version that does not grant the HP/Mana, like with gem.

    Keep in mind that if the courier has mana, it can also place wards. It's definitely a feature that had strategic value.

    also, the couriers in dota 2 are shared to all. that's why i think it doesn't give stat bonuses. it only shows who's the owner of the item. while in dota 1, the courier is your unit and you own the item so it gives the stat bonus of the item. if you want to have the bonus then they have to remove the autoshare of the courier. hope that clears it.

    [Confirmed] Courier Does Not Gain Bonuses From Carried Items (Especially Boots)

    I feel that with the bottle change, this became more relevant.

    Courier should be able to get bonuses from all the same things Spirit Bear gets bonuses from. The most notable ones are Boosters to give it health and mana and Boots to make it move faster.

    Armlet should work on it too (this is probably a Bad Idea, but whatever).
