New Dota 2 Hero, Marci, Released with Update 7.30e

VALVE have released a major update for Dota 2. The main feature of the update in the new hero Marci, which is a character from the Netflix’s anime series DOTA: Dragon’s Blood. Besides that, the developers have released a balance patch 7.30e.

Marci is a melee hero that can be played as either a carry or a support, and has powerful abilities for initiation and escaping. Her kit looks as follows:

  • Dispose: Marci grabs an allied or enemy target and throws it effortlessly behind her, damaging and stunning the unit if it's an enemy. Any enemy units in the landing area will also be damaged and stunned.
  • Rebound: Vector targeted. Marci bounds to the targeted unit, choosing a direction and distance she will spring away from it. Upon reaching the unit, Marci lunges to her final destination, damaging and slowing enemies in the area. If the unit she runs to is an ally, it receives 35.0% bonus movement speed for 5.0s.
  • Sidekick: Marci's loyalty helps ensure survival, imbuing a chosen allied hero and herself with lifesteal and attack damage.
  • Unleash: Marci taps a hidden power, gaining Fury charges that allow her to deliver a rapid sequence of strikes. The last strike in every Fury combo creates a damaging pulse around the target that slows movement and attack speed for 2.0s. In between Fury combos, Marci is unable to attack for 1.5s. Marci receives a basic dispel when Unleash is cast and gains 15% movement speed.

Meanwhile the update’s balance changes are mostly focused on the heroes who over performed at the recent International 10. Most notably, the developers nerfed Magnus – the Skewer range was reduced, while Horn Toss no longer stuns enemies. You can check all the changes in the game and on the official website.

On top of that, the update also introduces a new Treasure of the Wordless Trek, which is available for $2.49. It contains sets for Zeus, Sven, Puck, Lina, Brewmaster, Clockwerk, Lich, Pangolier, Templar Assassin, and Ancient Apparation, as well as a chance at a Very Rare Spectre set, and Extremely Rare Razor set.
