Valve has just released a new Dota Plus patch for Dota 2, just after the latest gameplay patch, that brings back the high five, dishes out some new guild quests and rewards, and introduces a new season treasure. The Dota Plus summer update is live in-game right now. If you want to maximize your chances to get rewards, you better sign up now.
Dota Plus is an annual subscription service to Valve’s free-to-play MOBA. It’s pitched as an evolution of a Majors battle pass that’s designed to help you get the most out of every match you play. It’s only $3,99 USD per month. If you’re into cosmetics and quests, it’s not a bad deal at all.
One of the major reintroductions of the Dota Plus summer update is the High Five ability. You can use this in conjunction with allies and enemies to mark those really memorable plays.
With the update, every member of a guild has been given the Guild Banner ability. You can use this to show your guild’s status and logo wherever you want in a match. Summer also brings new guild rewards for the different tiers. There are new emoticons for Silver Tier, new sprays for Gold Tier, and new chat wheel options for Platinum Tier.
It’s rewards season
A new season means a new Dota Plus Treasure. The Summer 2021 Seasonal Treasure features new sets for Chaos Knight, Phantom Assassin, Outworld Destroyer, Wraith King, Sven, Treant Protector, Huskar, Brewmaster, Storm Spirit, and Naga Siren. Plus, each one you open also has a chance to reward you with the Trod & Cheddar courier. The courier comes with a random prismatic and kinetic gem, which is amazing.
You can purchase the Summer Treasures with shards. And to help you get more of these, there is a new set of Dota Plus quests. The quests will give you the chance to earn up to 115,200 shards throughout the season.
Don’t forget, there’s one more Dota 2 Major before The International. You can catch all the action from June 2 to 13.
