First the Underlord and then the Monkey King.
This is insanse GABEN releasing more Dota 2 heroes.
At the International 2016’s Valve have revealed Dota 2’s new hero. The community has been waiting for Underlord—neé Pit Lord—for years. With his addition, Dota 2 is finally feature complete: every single character from the original WarCraft III mod is finally present in Valve’s definitive version. The new hero will be released on August 23rd alongside an update to the post-game UI.
Underlord is a caster with tremendous utility, able to trap enemy heroes in a pit, apply heavy damage over time, and leech off their attack power when they die. His ultimate allows him to teleport an entire team’s worth of heroes to any allied creep or structure on the map, an ability that would fit perfectly in this year’s rotation-heavy meta.
The addition of Underlord brings Dota 2’s hero pool up to 112 as the game enters an uncertain new era: will anonymous designer Icefrog create new heroes? Or is Dota 2 ‘done’? Unlike other MOBAs, heroes themselves aren’t part of Dota 2’s business model and regular additions aren’t needed to keep the game alive. Given how competitive the current pool is, with 104 characters picked or banned at the International, there’s an argument to be made that the game is perfect as it is.
Now lets get to the another Hero coming up which is the Monkey King – Sun Wukong, the idea of this hero was introduced in Dota 1. But the Vavle and Icefrog planned to release this hero in Dota 2. Monkey King is based on Sun Wukong, the legendary hero from the Chinese classic Journey to the West. Monkey King is the first original hero made for Dota 2. All previous heroes were ported from DotA. There were alot of hints early. Like, An easter egg boss fight versus Monkey King was added to the 6.79 DotA map to hint at his upcoming release & Monkey King’s stats were revealed in the version 6.80 beta, but he was never added to the release version. Monkey King shares design similarities with Phantom Lancer, who may have been based on the earlier concepts of Monkey King.
Well lets hope this new hero comes up as a great hard carry, so late game he can be alot useful. Builds like Diffusal Blade would be going be great with him as he seems to be a mixture of Riki and Phantom Lancer.
Good Luck and Keep Doting.. 🙂
