Dota 2 Update Fixes Bots, Adds Chest And New Templar Assassin Hero

By   /   4 years ago


The most recent update for Dota 2 is bringing a lot of new content to Valve’s invite-only MOBA game. The latest update for Dota 2 is a bit like Santa. Big, fat and full of presents. Well, not presents but game content.

First of all we’ve got an all new hero in the form of Lanaya, the Templar Assassin, the trap-shooting, invisbility-turning, templar-being ganker that you’ve all been waiting for. Secondly there’s the new treasure chests and keys, with a definite tortoise-esque feel to them. There’s bug fixes, items and bot tweaking as well in this update.

So, let’s take a closer look at the content. Starting with the new hero.

Lanaya, the Templar Assassin
This new hero is all about stealth, agility, general ninja day-to-day business and ganking. Lanaya is all about being devious to maximise damage, and courtesy of this she turns invisible so long as she’s standing still.

This passive ability lets you set up yourself as a living trap, and to compliment that she can also leave actual traps on lanes. So, sneak damage is definitely her thing. Now, what about her upgrades?

She’s got a pair of Psi-blades that are used for close range damage, but as she upgrades them they begin to deal damage at longer distances as well as pumping up the damage itself. So even when she’s invisible, she doesn’t need people to bump into her to get maximum damage.

Her ultimate makes it rain traps all over the battlefield making it really difficult for enemies to retreat and racking up points in assists.

Her Refraction skill is also kindof funky, it makes her immune to an attack up to six times. It takes timing and some precise microing, but it’s what will make the difference in a melee mash-up.

As for the new crates, well what is there to say? They look vaguely turtule-like and you need to buy a key in order to open them. They’ve only just hit the game, so they could contain anything. I sure wish I knew!

Want the full patch notes? You can read them right here or on Steam.
