Attention, Dota 2 players and other assorted people with no free time: version 6.86 – The Balance of Power update – is now out.
As noted yesterday, this offers significant reworks of multiple heroes, adds in Arc Warden, redesigns the map, throws in a bunch of new items and a new rune, and has all the usual balance-y stuff too. It’s a bit crazy, and I’ll be doing a proper analysis of it when I get the chance. For now, though, you can read up on some details of what horrors lurk within over here, or view the full patch notes here.
The patch should be available to download on Steam now now now, and weighs in at a relatively respectable 880MB. A bit more if you’ve got the Workshop tools installed, I believe, but not by much.
