15. Golden Basher Blades

The sworn enemy of all magic, Anti-Mage has all he needs to put up a strong fight against the arcane arts.

There are various ambient effects on these blades which blend well with the other items. 


14. Golden Shards of Exile

Outworld Devourer is one of the giants of the mid-lane. His threatening skillset makes him a competent force of nature, though he lacks severely in the cosmetic department. There are a few choices but Golden Shards of Exile is definitely the correct one. The Golden Shards currently go for $325 on the Steam Market. 


13. Golden Silent Wake

Drow Ranger is one of the most played heroes in Dota, which explains why there are so many skins that can cater to all types of players. The Golden Silent Wake is an extremely top-tier skin that has it all, from custom sound effects to icon effects and even ambient effects. This skin is for all the die-hard Drow fans who settle for nothing less.


12. Guard of the Red Mist

Axe is blessed with not just one but various different cosmetics which are guaranteed to turn heads and make your allies compliment you. Although this cosmetic may not appeal to everyone, it’s the Vanguard which is inspired by the eponymous item. You can buy this on the Steam Market for $300.


11.  Crimson Edge of the Lost Order

The sword-wielding Samurai has various shiny and effective swords but none of them come close to the Crimson Edge sword! This sword has it all, the blin, the fear, and most importantly, the ability to impress your allies and foes. You are privy to getting compliments if you own this rare skin! Currently, this Crimson Edge of the Lost Order goes for $510 on the Steam Market!


10. Mace of Aeons

Faceless Void has various impressive and shiny items, all of his immortal items can be combined to make a shiny set! That being said, Void still has the Arcana pending. The only item which puts the icing on the cake is the Mace of Aeons, which has hypnotized all Void fans and enticed them into buying it. This legendary Mace will set you back by $195 on the Steam Market


9. Tales of the Ardalan Interdictor

Sniper may have various sets but none of them can be compared to this intergalactic Ardalan set. This set was added in the October 2020 update, and it was a breath of fresh air from the lore stuck Sniper sets which frankly were monotonous and akin to each other. This set is tradable and marketable as well. This set goes for $210 on the Steam Market.


8. Dragonclaw Hook

Dragonclaw Hook is one of the most sought-after skins in the game. Pudge looks more menacing than ever with this great hook. The design of the hook is quite simple and may puzzle a lot of readers. There is quite the historical and sentimental value that people have with this skin as it has been in the game for over a decade. 


7. Crimson Mournful Reverie 

Vengeful Spirit is versatile support and carry hero. Her skins rarely stray away from her blue color scheme, except for the Crimson Reverie which broke all norms and is the cooler version of the regular Mournful Reverie. This skin was released as the part of 2018 International Battle Pass. It will set you back by $399 on the Steam Market.


6. Tsukomo the Moon Cloud

Tsukomo the Mooncloud has various reasons for it being the best Mirana mount. The first reason is the two different styles, you can turn the mount from a cute bunny to a ferocious tiger! There are also multiple idle and ambient effects and animations which put this mount so high on our list! 


5. Axe of Phractos

Axe lacks in the Axe department! The Axe of Phractos was obtained by purchasing the Axe figurine from the WETA Workshop. It sold out pretty quickly and is no longer available. But there are over 500 listings of this majestic Axe on the Steam Market, with the cheapest going for $564.44! 


4. Transversant Soul of the Crimson Witness

Prior to the Immortal and Arcana, Spectre lacked severely in the cosmetic department. The Crimson version of the Transversant Soul has caught the attention of all Spectre players, as it not only has great ambient effects but also the eyebrow-raising price tag of $686.


3. Golden Ornithomancer Mantle of the Benefactor

Rubick the Orthomancer has many tricks up his sleeve, including making his own cape golden! Jokes aside, this majestic golden variation of the normal cape has made all the real Rubick fans invest in this item. You want to look cool and regal while stealing enemy spells, don’t you?


2. Dark Artistry 

Invoker is one of the most played heroes in the game, hence his skins are also crafted with the utmost love and dedication as an ode to his magic. Invoker doesn’t have an Arcana per se but he has the Dark Artistry set which renders the need for an Arcana, useless! This set has it all, the shiny icons, the shiny spell effects, and even ambient effects as you trot around the map playing the master of the Arcane arts. This set was released 6 years ago and yet it still is one of the most expensive and cherished sets in the game, says a lot about a hero who is rather complicated to play.


1. Alpine Stalker

This set has been the face of many controversies as it was removed from the game due to thematic concerns as it strayed away from the lore. But the lucky ones who bought this set probably sold it at an insane price due to its rarity. Unfortunately, the Cowboy Ursa set isn’t on the Steam Market for now, but you can buy the individual parts separately for cheaper! This set will set you back by $1,100 if bought separately.
