About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

Our Dota Auto Chess Item list and stats page contains a list of all the items, their stats and combinations.

The start of each Auto Chess match begins the same way, regardless of your starting hero selection. In the initial three waves you'll face off against AI "creep" creatures which provide you with levelling experience, as well as the occasional item that drops from their corpses.

After that it's a case of facing off against human opponents, but those neutral waves come back eventually. When they do they'll not only present you with a much stiffer challenge, but also give you juicier items when they drop in battle.

Starting out with Auto Chess, we didn't really understand the ins and outs of the item system. We had no idea they could combine into stronger items or how they complemented certain heroes. With next to no in-game help available, it's likely you're going to run into problems like we did back when we first started with the game.

If you’re in the same boat as we once were with items, then we’ll try and clear things up for you. Below we’ve put together a table which contains all the creeps, the rounds they spawn, the items they drop and what combinations lead to special items.

As the game progresses and tweaks are made, we’ll endeavour to keep this page bang up to date.
