The Outlanders – 7.23 Dota 2 Update
The long-waited Dota 2 patch – The Outlanders has finally arrived, also known as 7.23 update, you can read the full patch notes here. Here’s are a few highlights to point out :
- Two New Heros
VOID SPIRIT Melee Carry Escape Nuker Disable
Ready to join his spirit brethren at last, the Void Spirit emerges from his Hidden Temple to stand guard over multiple areas of the battlefield at once. Able to step into and out of the mortal plane at will, he easily outmaneuvers opponents to strike from wherever he desires, calling upon the powers of the aether to shield him in times of need.
SNAPFIRE Range Support Nuker Disable Escape
Just as happy to blow your legs off with her trusty scattergun as to fill your belly up with a deliciously-dangerous cookie, Beatrix Snapfire delights in riding into battle with her dragon toad Mortimer, always ready to mow down their enemies with her homemade heavy artillery or finish them off with a steady barrage of Mortimer’s firespit globs.
- Courier Changes
Couriers also underwent a significant overhaul. Each player gets a courier automatically, the patch notes explained, and those couriers now gain levels alongside the heroes. Various stats for the Couriers were changed with various abilities added such as the option to use wards.
- Heroes Max Level
One part of the patch notes that’ll stand out immediately is the fact that heroes can now progress to level 30. This new level cap allows them to unlock the entire talent tree once they reach that, but there’s also a cap on the respawn timers so that players aren’t waiting forever to get back in the game once they hit 30.
“Heroes can now level up to 30,” the Dota 2 patch notes said about the new level cap. “Once you get to level 30, you unlock the entire talent tree. XP requirement for the levels are 3500/4500/5500/6500/7500. Respawn time does not increase past 25. XP bounties max out at level 25 bounty values.”
