To gain 1 mana regeneration, 25 intelligence points are required, and to gain 1% spell damage, 14 intelligence points are required.

Intelligence heroes tend to have a greater number of active abilities compared to heroes of other classes; all Intelligence heroes have at least three active abilities, with a large number of them having all four of their abilities being actives. Their larger mana pools and higher mana regen rates go a long way to help them use these abilities frequently. As a whole, Intelligence heroes have by far the greatest number of disabling capabilities, making them essential in most lineups.

Because of this, they often fit into support and ganker roles.
