Trivia

  • Heart of Gold item.png Heart of Gold paid for itself after 27 minutes and 30 seconds. If it was sold, it paid for itself after 13 minutes and 46 seconds.
  • It was the most expensive of all gold-generating items.
  • The item's appearance as a turtle shell is a reference to an obscure myth whereby gold or some assorted treasure can be obtained by breaking or prying open the turtle's shell.
  • The item was removed because it allowed non-support characters access to free extra gold, as it gave health and built into items that bruisers could use well.
  • The Relic Shield item.png Relic Shield added in Season 4 is very similar to this item.
