Winter Treasure II



Winter Treasure II is now available, featuring Underlord's item set debut, as well as new sets for Silencer, Lifestealer, Lina, Death Prophet, Broodmother, Batrider, and Keeper of the Light. Each treasure also offers the chance to unlock a Very Rare Sniper set or Extremely Rare Disruptor set.

Today's update also introduces a new feature that allows you to request item suggestions from your teammates. Click the Request Suggestion button in the top left of your shop window to try it out.

In Workshop and Armory news, we're continuing our improvements to Keeper of the Light with a change to the item slots used by his faithful mounts. From now on, rather than dedicating item slots to both his mount and that mount's armor, Ezalor will have a single slot for his mount, and any armor will be included in the mount's model itself. This should allow for higher quality single-asset mounts, and help support the release of more Keeper of the Light sets in the future.

As a side effect of this upgrade, older Keeper of the Light mounts and their armor will be converted from two separate items into one in order to fit the hero's new item slot requirements. Owners of these older sets can find the new combined versions in their Armory.

The New Journey

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.
