Dota 2 to Receive Three Spirits Update
The Three Spirits update is the latest major update coming to the popular free to play MOBA from Valve, Dota 2. The three Spirits referred to are Storm, Earth, and Ember, with Earth and Ember being new heroes and Storm Spirit receiving a svelte cosmetic change. In addition to the two new heroes, a number of gameplay and other changes have been added. A lane picker utility was added to the hero selection screen, tournament replays will now be available spoiler free, penalties for players in low priority have been changed, among other changes. Several changes have been made to the item system and game economy with the ability to craft items into different items and items now able to accept gems to change their properties. Perhaps most importantly, Valve has given us Diretide, a return of the Halloween game mode from last year where teams fight each other and then join forces against the mighty Roshan.
