Bounty Hunter Aghanim’s Scepter Might Hurt After The 7.00 Update

We are judging a lot of changes these days together with the whole Dota 2 community. Let’s speak about another change, actually, more of like an addition to Bounty Hunter. Bounty Hunter Aghanim’s Scepter has come to the game. Was this even needed? Is it going to be a new meta? Let’s just analyze it for a brief moment and then we’ll judge this new Gondar’s change.

So, after the Dota 2 7.00 patch, there were a lot of changes added to the game. Well, if most of the heroes gain a buff to their Ultimate, not all of them, this time Aghamin’s Scepter buffs Bounty Hunter’s Shuriken Toss. In what manner? So basically it jumps 2 times to all the tracked heroes. This might be a hell of a change. Let us see why.

Bounty Hunter’s Shuriken Toss

So, you probably all know what Shuriken Toss does, except for the new players. Let us explain that. So he tosses a deadly shuriken, not actually that much deadly like it says so, dealing damage for 150/225/300/375. This is without Aghanim’s Scepter. The Shuriken will jump on all of the Tracked enemy players who are within a radius of 1200. The radius calculates from player to player.

What has changed since the Dota 2 7.00 update came? This spell, which is already dealing a lot of damage and disrupts channeling spells, is now upgraded by getting an Aghanim’s Scepter on Bounty Hunter. Does it pay out to go for Aghanim’s Scepter? Well, given the fact that Bounty Hunter’s Aghanim’s scepter will be something similar to Mirana’s (POTM). I’d say, why not. Now, with the help and addition of Aghanim’s Scepter to Gondar, he can pretty much deal 2×375 damage to tracked Enemies in a fight. I am thinking of a new Gondar’s offlane gameplay Meta. With all those new runes added on the map, Bounty can easily sneak up and even build from that too. So, bounty roamer/ganker, is still a nice choice, just because of the Runes.

It’s not just that. After the 7.00 update, all of the Heroes have a new Talents Tree, which can make Gondar even better.  Before saying anything else. Let’s go and analyze his talents. Below you can see bounty Hunter’s Shuriken Toss Spell. It’s time for us to continue with the Talent Tree.

Bounty Hunter’s Talent Tree

There is one talent that says +8% Spell amplification. Let’s calculate it now. So, 375 + 8% is 30 it will be equal to 405 magical damage. With Aghanim’s Scepter, that would be 810. Given the fact that the Damage type is Magical, it might not hit that much in late game because the opponents will get some magical resistance items for sure. The only bad part is the hardness to get all the tracks as fast as you can so you can pop that Shuriken Toss on their heads. Keep in mind that it’s magical damage, so it won’t work through BKB. However, it’s still a good meta. Is it a new meta? I do not know, let’s see in the next tournament that comes in near future. Let the professionals gamers judge about that.

Below you can see all the Bounty Hunter’s Talent Tree, added after the new Dota 2 7.00 patch.
