Dota 2 is famous for its impressive heroes and skins. Furthermore, there are dozens of skins in the game to show these heroes as different and varied than they are.

The coolest Dota 2 skins are priced high in most markets and are harder to find than regular skins. Because the players see the hard to have as more valuable and strive to get it. We’ll give you more information about the rarest items and how they are so valuable in Dota 2 market.

What Are These Rare Items and Skins?

What makes an item expensive and valuable is its rarity. So what makes an item or skin rare is its scarcity. Currently considered the most expensive item in Dota 2 may only be available for a limited time or be part of a very valuable collection. It becomes very difficult to find these rarest Dota 2 skins after they are no longer in stores.

This is one of the rarest and the most popular items in Dota 2. The reason this item is so popular is that players love Pudge so much, and he is very fun to play.

Those who got it on time got it. This set includes the Lucky Alpine Stalker’s Hat, Alpine Stalker’s Scarf, Alpine Stalker Pants, and the Alpine Stalker Gloves.

  • Slot: Weapon
  • Released: 31 Jul 2015
  • Origin: Golden Trove Carafe 2015
  • Price: $600-700

A gold-colored glamorous staff with a Tetris cube-like structure…Yes, gold. Is there a chance that something gold isn’t rare? There is a less rare but similar version of this item. The difference between them is that it is not golden in color like Golden Staff of Perplex. Don’t you think a golden staff would suit the hand of a wizard with a greenish theme like Rubick?

The story of this staff is: Captured in this staff is a puzzle that not even Rubick has solved. He idle moments attempting to unlock its mysteries. From time to time, hoping for insight, he casts it upon an enemy and lets them hang enthralled in its enigmas.

8. Golden Ornithomancer Mantle of the Benefactor

  • Hero: Rubick
  • Slot: Back
  • Released: 30 Aug 2016
  • Origin: Trust of the Benefactor 2016
  • Price: $1330-1400

This skin is similar to Golden Ornithomancer Mantle but this one is tradeable and marketable. The only difference is that it has bright and glittering effects when worn. Adding glamor to Rubick’s charismatic image, this mantle makes him look more remarkable and eye-catching. It was an item that once sold for $0.30, but now it’s priced as high as $1300. The reason for this may be that the person who put this item at that price was not aware of the rarity of this item or accidentally put it. And someone else purchased the item instantly without being removed.
