About Ed Thorn

Ed will not rest until a new Wario Land is announced.

Our Dota Underlords Item list guide contains a list of all the items and their effects.

At the very beginning of an Auto Chess match you’ll be faced with three AI “Creep” waves. Defeating these creatures will provide you with levelling experience and the choice between three Tier 1 items.

After these three waves, you’ll face off against human opponents, but these Creep waves will come back sporadically. When they arrive, they’ll not only present you with progressively tougher challenges, but also grant you higher tier items to choose from.

If you’re a newcomer to Auto Chess, it can be a little overwhelming to know the ins and outs of the item system. Below we’ve put together a table which contains all the items in the game and what effects they’ll have on your units.

It’s inevitable that Valve will introduce new items, or even new item mechanics, and we’ll endeavour to keep this page updated as soon as these patches arrive.
