Learn How to Get DOTA Items
Get all the details on how to acquire DOTA 2 items.
You can buy specific items from the DOTA 2 store, but you typically pay full price. Very rare items are not available for purchase here.
Other players can list items for sale on the Steam Community Market. You can typically find a lot of really good deals here.
Once you buy an item here, you will need to wait 7 days before you can trade it.
End of Game Drops
Items are sometimes randomly dropped at the end of the game. As of the time of this writing (December 2015), the dropped items were not very valuable.
Buy on Loot Market
You can buy items right here on Loot Market from other players that have listed items for sale.
We require sellers to list their items below Steam Community Market prices to help make this a great site for buyers.
You can enter our giveaways, get lucky, and get an amazing item for free.
