Immortal Treasure III



Immortal Treasure III is now ready to unbox, and includes items for Slark, Earth Spirit, Bane, Ogre Magi, Razor, Medusa, and Lina—as well as a rare chance to receive 50 bonus Battle Levels. All Battle Pass owners can find their unlocked treasure ready to open in the Armory.

As with treasures I & II, Immortal Treasure III features escalating odds, and each one opened increases your chances to receive the bonus rare Battle Points, very rare golden version of the Slark item, or ultra rare Lina item. Each available rare has its own independent escalating odds chance.

Check out the Battle Pass website for a preview of the items and custom spell effects contained in this new Immortal Treasure, or jump into your Armory to reveal your reward.

Those players who reach Battle Level 167 and beyond will also find additional Immortal Treasure III's waiting to help celebrate their Battle Pass accomplishments, so level up your Battle Pass before the conclusion of The International 2016 Grand Finals to increase your haul. 25% of all level sales will go directly to the tournament prize pool, which will soon surpass last year's record high of $18,429,613 to become the largest tournament payout in esports history.

To commemorate this new high-water mark, every Battle Pass owner will receive three Trust of the Benefactor treasure rewards in their Armory at the conclusion of The International Battle Pass season.

About This Game

Dota is a competitive game of action and strategy, played both professionally and casually by millions of passionate fans worldwide. Players pick from a pool of over a hundred heroes, forming two teams of five players. Radiant heroes then battle their Dire counterparts to control a gorgeous fantasy landscape, waging campaigns of cunning, stealth, and outright warfare.

Irresistibly colorful on the surface, Dota is a game of infinite depth and complexity. Every hero has an array of skills and abilities that combine with the skills of their allies in unexpected ways, to ensure that no game is ever remotely alike. This is one of the reasons that the Dota phenomenon has continued to grow. Originating as a fan-made Warcraft 3 modification, Dota was an instant underground hit. After coming to Valve, the original community developers have bridged the gap to a more inclusive audience, so that the rest of the world can experience the same core gameplay, but with the level of polish that only Valve can provide.

Get a taste of the game that has enthralled millions.

Dota 2 is like an abusive relationship. It's not good for you, but you go back to it anyways because it's addicting. You'll lose a game, feel bad, play again, then if you win you'll feel just content. If you lose again, you'll play again. Repeat. There are good moments, there are bad moments, but most of all there are non-english speakers in english servers. Fortunately if you're looking to learn foreign swear words, this is definitely the game for you.

10/10 would cry again.

I have 2000 HOURS
Normal: Garbage
Ranked: Garbage
Custom Games: Decent
I've supported 70 percent of games
I've attempted to keep calm
I've attempted to do everything in my sanity to enjoy this.
If you want you play this having some sort of fun or enjoyment play with friends.
That's the only reason I play this now.
This is the pure honest truth of someone who has attempted this.
You think MMR matters.
You think stats matter.
You think only you matters. Thats the only thing I ever see.
Its a matter of fact that I'm addicted to this game at times.
I've had games playing with the dumbest idiots being my friends yet those games I've had more fun in being the stupid stuff we do or how we mess around them being half drunk and laughing.
That's how Dota should be. Drunk and having fun. Something this community can't understand No matter how much you try, how good you get it won't get better.
I can't recommend this game because of what it has done to me as a person and how half of the hours in game I've spent in anger rather than at least mild amusement.
Anyone from pros to rookies can agree honestly on this one thing.
♥♥♥♥ this game

You need a lot of time to get into it.
Once you done it.
You`ll love it.
You will learn russian.
You will learn new swear words.
You will learn REAL hate.
You will learn to (dis)respect.
You will learn that hating the people from one country doesn`t make you a racist.

First there was DotA, The WC III Version.
Then LoL was released few years later with a bit better graphics.

People said LoL is the best moba now and it erased the WC III version of DotA.
Then DotA2 was released, and defeated LoL, But LoL and DotA 2 are still fighting to prove who's the best.

Yet still nobody plays HoN.
